Notes:

The story begins “A long time ago”, but no specific time associated to it. A lot like Star Wars, except for the “in a galaxy far, far, away” part.

The Queen put a note in the bottle. What does the note say? Does it clarify what was in the diary/

Elsa finally allowed Anna to marry Kristoff. Elsa isn’t entirely happy about it, but she is allowing it.

Who is on the Storybrooke Beautification Society? Mice? Fairies? Helpful animals in a forest?

The discussion between Emma, doing the “right” thing of saving a life and how it effects Regina. Decision can have ripple effects on other people, good or bad.

Even though Regina has made strides to be good and to be a hero, she still pays for the mistakes of the past. It’s similar to someone with a drinking problem making good choices now, then someone who hasn’t been around them during their time of making good choices, the person trying to be better is still know as the person with the problem by someone who hasn’t been around them lately.

When situations like Marion calling her a “monster” happen, it can make you not want to try to make good decisions to do better, because you will always be know by what you’ve done, not what you are doing (better) now.

Robin is in a tough spot, between being in love with Regina and following the vow of marriage to his (now alive) wife and the code of trying to be a noble person.

We discuss the difference of how viewers of Once Upon a Time recated to David Nolan’s actions with Mary Margaret in season 1 and Robin’s actions now.

Except for Robin, no one stood up for the new Regina to Marion. Charming, Emma, Henry didn’t. Snow was concerned for her, but didn’t stand up for her to Marion.

It’s good to have a designated driver when you’ve been drinking, but be wary of a “sleepy” designated driver.

Why didn’t Elsa find the book in the attic desk before? It appears she searched and found their Mother’s dress?

Was the previous Queen of Arendelle, Elsa’s Mother or was she the adoptive Mother of Elsa? Was Elsa’s real Mother the White Witch from Narnia?

Elsa still hasn’t learned to control her power, fear still causes it to react with her.

Elsa read too much into the entry in her Mother’s diary. Part of the arc of Season 4A is why her parents went to Misthaven, and who they went to see. Rumpel? Merlin? Yen Sid? Someone else?

Who originally owned the mansion that Belle happened upon for their honeymoon? Was it a trap?

Is Sidney manipulating Regina by showing her what he wants her to see for his own purposes?

Thanks to ABC and Disney for providing a review copy of the OUAT Season 3 BluRay discs.

Do you have to own the discs of Once Upon a Time? Can’t you just stream them?

There are many ways that people can get/view/consume TV shows, but we think there is still a place to own either DVD or BluRay discs. The quality of the look of the episodes and the ownership of the episodes in either DVD or BluRay will allow you to enjoy the episodes without the worry about a legal streaming service ever removing OUAT to make room for another show. That plus, some of the extras still make Season 3 a must own.

If you haven’t already, order your OUAT Season 3 DVD/BluRay sets with our affiliate link: http://www.onceuponatimepodcast.com/ouatS3

Commentaries

In a way, the commentaries are (at this point) taking the place of the Official OUAT Podcast. Good insights included and it was a plus to have Robert and Colin, but we wish that Robbie Kay, Rebecca Mader or others in the cast could have been included as in years past.

Deleted Scenes
I felt Mr. Van Winkel would have been a great scene to leave in the episode, because I want to believe that there are many fairy tale characters throughout the OUAT storyline. By leaving in this scene, you wouldn’t have to announce a new character reveal, you would know that any character is possible.

There were many deleted scenes that (to me) are worth owning the discs for.

Bloopers
I wouldn’t consider this segment bloopers, I would consider this “the goofiest moments” of them all. Fun, but not bloopers.

Wicked Villians
I loved the insight into what makes a villain, or on the flip side, a hero. Peter Pan and Zelena were missing, and I felt that they should have been included, since they were central villians to the A and B arc of Season 3.

Tale of Ariel
This was my favorite. I enjoyed the parts of creating and bringing Ariel to ‘Once Upon a Time’.

Disney Once Again notes:

I keep thinking the opening song was from Lilo and Stitch’s Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride.

Ice Worker’s intro great peek into the Norwegian life and the background of Kristoff and Sven, also giving clues to the story we will see.

Ice layer – breaking through. The two layers. People have use for the ice, if it’s controlled and cut to manageable pieces. The song alludes to the land’s frozen heart worth mining. Ice has magic (To preserve, stop time of decay), the song says. Watch your step, let it go! Stronger than 100 men.

The Frozen Heart (Ice Worker’s Song) lyrics
Born of cold and winter air
And mountain rain combining
This icy force both foul and fair
Has a frozen heart worth mining

Cut through the heart, cold and clear
Strike for love and strike for fear
See the beauty sharp and sheer
Split the ice apart
And break the frozen heart

Beautiful, powerful, dangerous, cold
Ice has a magic can’t be controlled
Stronger than one, stronger than ten
Stronger than a hundred men

Born of cold and winter air
And mountain rain combining
This icy force both foul and fair
Has a frozen heart worth mining

Cut through the heart, cold and clear
Strike for love and strike for fear
There’s beauty and there’s danger here
Split the ice apart
Beware the frozen heart

Little Anna is like Lady, “The skies awake, so I’m awake”.

the-skys-awake

The little Anna and Elsa are so cute. Little Anna reminded me of Agnes in Despicable Me. Anna knows just how to get Elsa out of bed.

The empty hall became a playroom with Elsa’s ice magic. We see Olaf for the first time. We see bits of situations we will see later; Anna sliding down snowy hills, falling into snow, going from one snowy hill to another, then when Elsa slipped and couldn’t magically build a snow hill for her to land on, she quickly show an ice bolt at Anna and injured her. The hair color change is a physical sign of something deeper changing.

It’s interesting that the King knew exactly what to do and where to go. OUAT bit: The floor that the map landed on looked like the floor in Rumpel’s study. He had a book and a map to go to the trolls. Had he gone there before? Why? With who? The King mentioned that Elsa was born with the power. OUAT bit: Pabbie removed all memories of Elsa’s magic, and only leave the fun memories. There were many potions and curses in OUAT that would block or remove certain memories. Instead of learning to control

The storm scene was incredible.

The stones in the burial scene reminded me of Stonehenge or rune stones.

Kristoff’s Sven voice is funny

Open up the gates, like Willy Wonka.

All the points of most little girls; Queen, princess, coronation day, opening the gates and people from everywhere are coming to see you.

Another Princess sing a song out a window.

Elsa’s coronation outfit is very British.

First time in forever; Anna fun expectation, Elsa anxious, worry and fear.
