God...this was too much. It was beautiful,but really depressing. If Alice is awake though,why did she lie to Hook?

Hook and the witch was just...ew.

Everything with Alice was really sad. Rumple not admitting he was awake was weird,though. I don't see what he has to gain.

I have to ask this because my TV froze or acted up during the broadcast so my boyfriend and I missed some parts.

When Regina came into the police station and noticed the cake that was sitting on Rogers' desk, and he said that he got it from Eloise as a gift for rescuing her, what did she say to Rogers before she trashed it?

That too much sugar is bad lol. I didn't like Hook getting dub con by Gothel but I did like he gave up his ship for her and we finally hear that Hook mom named was Alice. Favorite scene earth 2 Hook singing to the baby
Alice is on medication that keeps her from being awake

I liked both episodes.

I thought Alice was a predictable revelation as the daughter going back to the chess board & game they played together. But I thought the episode at least did a good job making me wonder. I liked Alice's flashbacks.

I liked Regina's line about using the bat to Drizella. I also thought Hook 2.0's line to Wish Regina was funny when she couldn't use her magic and he said that looked frustrating.

Felt bad Regina had to try & dissuade Jacinda from dating Henry. But it looks like Nick showing up halted things for the time being.

Curious to see what Mother Gothel will be up to in future episodes.

The funny part about the Wish Evil Queen flashback, was oh, Snow and Charming just took her magic. She's done without that. I liked her really long hair though. It looked so pretty. I don't remember seeing Regina's hair that long before.

It was a good twist. I hope we get to see how Wish Hook's heart got cursed. I'm assuming Gothel did it to him out of spite.

I loved these two episodes but i'm slightly let down by who his daughter is. It was made too obvious that Alice was his daughter.

it was nice to have so much Hook though, the singing scene was beautiful. Gothel was horrendous. Very creepy.

Anytime Colin's singing abilities gets showcased on this show, I'm all for it.

vfxsup @glidersonset and her team worked tirelessly to create all this hair, long enough to scale a tower perhaps? -

Both good episodes. I did see it coming that Alice was wish Hook's daughter but still a good story.

Eloise Gardner: Great episode!

So….wish realm Hook was tricked by a witch who pretended to be Rapunzel….I don’t get the whole baby thing on order for her to be freed from the tower? I thought it was just the flower, I really didn’t get that. But I did like how it gave Hook the distraction he needed from revenge on the Dark One. That scene where he sings a lullaby to his daughter was sweet. And he called her Alice! So Alice in Wonderland! Right…starting to join up the dots now. I did have my suspicions.

I like how Rumple/Weaver was trying to stop Rogers find Eloise because he knew who she really was (the witch) for all incentive purposes he was trying to protect him.

Victoria Belfry arrested! And she finds what her daughter has been up to, so knows she was awake from the curse….Drizella set this whole thing in motion.

Regina using such subtlety to try and keep Henry and Jacinda apart, bless her. It hurt her to do it to Henry, but she knows she must.

Poor Lucy being taken by social services.

Pretty in Blue;

Loved this one even more, especially the scenes with Henry and Ella in Wonderland. Nice to see how their relationship blossomed.

So Hook 2.0 and Alice were reunited but still torn apart by his poisoned heart. I'm really enjoying Alice as a character, she's so much fun to watch.

Rumple pretending to not be awake when Regina knew he was is perplexing. What does he have to gain? Regina needed help and he was the only one in Hyperion Heights that could. He is just being selfish.

Loved when Regina threw away the cake that Eloise/Gothel gave Rogers, claiming too much sugar is bad for him. Nice going.

Roni/Regina offers to take Henry on a road trip to San Francisco, where she knows someone who was kicked out of Hyperion Heights by Victoria, and apparently they hate her, who could help them out...I wonder who this could be?

Glad that Jacinda got Lucy back, thanks to Nick, who is supposedly Lucy's father. So this Nick was called Jack and Henry's friend from Agrabah...interesting..

I hate that we have to wait until the 12th of December for the next episode!!
