Notes:

2:37 to 2:38

How soon did you know it was a nightmare?

Did you notice Charming drinking McCutcheon Whiskey (LOST)? Like Daughter, like Father, I guess.

The Queens of Darkness are very Rumpelesque when they meet the Charmings to make a deal

Ursula “tentacled” a mysterious box from beyond Belle’s back, however once it was taken and she was asked if anything was stolen, she knew based on her records. She kept great records!

Did you notice Cruella’s Dalmatian spotted cellphone cover?

It was great to see Geppetto and little Pinocchio again, but if only they had adult Pinocchio…

Another quest – Go to the Tree of Wisdom to find out how to defeat Regina’s plan. It requires 2 of the most Valiant to approach and ask.

Sheriff “Chisel Chin” pulls over Cruella and Ursula. Charming found what Ursula took from Gold’s shop, but wasn’t honest with Emma.

Big Love. Take what you need and pass it on.

News:

From listener Ken in the Steveston area,

He gives us a short weather report from Vancouver “Weather has been awesome here this winter ….. unusually warm (50 – 65 F daytime) ….. mowed the lawn twice already … cherry blossoms are out as well as crocuses and beginning of daffodils. Only snow we got was a couple of days in November.”

From Giennie

Hello Jeff and Colleen!

First I would like to say that I am a long time listener and fan of your podcast and I can’t WAIT till you are back on so I can listen.. your shows are are one of my favorites to listen to. 🙂 Thank you so much for doing them 🙂

The reason why I am writing is that some friends of mine and I have launched a CS T-shirt charity campaign and we are doing our best to get the word out to help raise not only money for this charity but also awareness of something that is prevelant in our time but never really focused on as it should be…suicide awareness.

We have designed a beautiful CS T-Shirt to sell as a T-shirt, tank or hoodie to help raise money for them:
https://represent.com/captain-swan-charity-campaign-for-sosad

The charity SOSAD(Save Our Sons And Daughters) is an Ireland-registered suicide prevention charity and that Colin O’Donoghue supports and all the proceeds from this campaign go directly to them

www.sosadireland.ie

This group has 6 locations, including Colin’s hometown of Drogheda.
The charity’s five main goals are to raise awareness of suicide in Ireland, break the taboo surrounding suicide, provide support and direction to those feeling suicidal, provide support and direction to those approached by someone feeling suicidal, and to provide support and direction for those bereaved by suicide.
It’s a great cause to support. The need to help those who can’t help themselves has become more prevalent everyday around the world.

Our campaign will end on March 21st.

Sincerely Giennie D

CS Tshirt revised

The charity helped by this effort is an Ireland suicide prevention charity called SOSAD (Save Our Sons and Daughters) supported by Colin O’Donoghue.
The charity raises awareness of suicide in Ireland and provides support for those persons affected by suicide.

The Storybrooke Town line – heals limping, as well as puts back on your tie.

What’s with Chernabog’s belt? Is it the source of it’s power/protection?

On our Facebook page, Carla noticed “It appears to be a crest of some kind….So possibly a cursed royal?”

Mother Superior’s name is Ruel Ghorm – we have proof!

Yen Sid is the landlord of the Sorcerer’s house?

vlcsnap-2015-03-02-18h25m00s227

On our Facebook page, Nancy (from the DIS Unplugged podcast) “I’m betting that the Yensid was purely for the fan theorists! Loving the details in hometown info. Who are Peter and Emilia Lurie from Michigan?”

From Rebecca

Thank you for alerting me that there was a book of 101 Dalmatians. I’m reading now. Cruella’s hubby is indeed in it, and Cruella mentions that she made him change his last name to hers. Love it!

From Aubrey

I think there is a small small chance that the author is Henry in the future writing down everyone’s stories because he knows them all and sends the book back in time or something to himself, so that he can believe and help Emma believe. But that probably is way off.

Email points:

Aleana

Nice to see Snow doubting people, it’s refreshing for her character, *instead of* giving them a second chance.

The Chernabog was after Emma because of her potential for evil, interesting, most be tying to the theme of what really makes a villain and what is good and evil. Interesting how Snow and Charming threatened Ursula and Cruella! I really want to know what happened in the enchanted forest!

Chris

I just have to say, as a big disney and fantasia fan, the reveal that the dark curse came from Bald Mountain was one of my favorite reveals so far in the show, and Chernabog was awesome!! Also Victoria Smurfit is killing it as Cruella… Spot on!! (see what i did there?) Awesome episode, 8.5/10 clucks

Trace

Hi Colleen and Jeff, (ladies first sir J),

Great to have you back for the season return…like a comfy blanket on long cold day!

Here are some of my thoughts. I loved this return! They answered some questions and gave us some fun new stuff. Oh…Colleen, the old curse (Regina’s) was that you lose memories when you cross the line, this new curse is that you can’t come back once you leave, (Ingrid’s curse), but you do remember who you are, I remember you asking in the last podcast…

Hero’s going dark, villains trying to be good…sounds cool to me! Very OUAT to flip the script so I think it will be very interesting…seeing Regina be the moral compass over the Charming’s was great! This is some secret for them to break character, it will cause mistrust with Emma and help turn her to the dark side I think. I have a straaaange feeling that Lilly is somehow involved in all this-but I don’t know how. I can’t wait!

Cruella is the best! How great was her green breath power??? Just like the movie with her green cigarette smoke…thought that was brilliant! Love her one-liners, but Regina asking “how a plate of uncooked calamari got the dark ones cell phone” was priceless!

A couple things did make me go hmmmm…WHY DID THEY LET THEM KEEP THE SCROLL? You do want your boyfriend back right? Kind of convenient and we need some scroll rules for sure. Ladies, always be sure to check for sneaky black smoke that releases evil devil dogs that seek the heart of potential darkness!! J Blue is still very evasive. She knows more and I think she will end up as being someone very important when this whole show ends. Why didn’t they ask her what’s going on in the hat? No one was curious? Hook is so upset about sucking the apprentice in there, but never asked about him?

Last. I hope that all 3 of these villainesses don’t end up dying this season. I would like to see some true redemption. Does Rumpel ever have a consequence? Ugh…I hope he doesn’t get the dagger back…I want Regina to have control over the dagger-she is the only trust worthy one there right now, how ironic!

Can’t wait to see how this all starts playing out…looking like a great 4B!! Big Love to both of you and all the Oncer’s listening-ttya next week! Trace

From Brad

Hi guys, it’s great to have the show back and to hear the podcast again. I hope life is treating you well and that you both are having a cluckidy cluck cluck day! Now, unto the things I learned this week on the episode, Darkness on the Edge of Town.

#1. Halitosis and Cruella go great
together.

#2. Henry will never win the
perfect attendance award for
his school.

#3. Make sure you stock up on
Ramen when the Dark One
comes to visit.

#4. Why go through the annoying
hassle of using your hands to
remove pictures off the wall,
when you can just burn them
off.

#5. There is a good possibility that
Snow consumed alcoholic
beverages while on the job as
mayor.

#6. De Vil’s driving instructor must
have accepted bribes.

#7. The “E” word should not be
thrown around flippantly.

#8. Getting the smell of fish out of
your dress is one of the many
hardships of being a fairy tale
character.

#9. There is no redemption for a
dwarf named Evil-y.

#10. Anton has finally made a
name for himself outside of
Storybrooke.

– Brad

Notes:

“Darkness On The Edge Of Town”
by Bruce Springsteen

They’re still racing out at the Trestles,
But that blood it never burned in her veins,
Now I hear she’s got a house up in Fairview,
And a style she’s trying to maintain.
Well, if she wants to see me,
You can tell her that I’m easily found,
Tell her there’s a spot out ‘neath Abram’s Bridge,
And tell her, there’s a darkness on the edge of town.

Everybody’s got a secret, Sonny,
Something that they just can’t face,
Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it,
They carry it with them every step that they take.
Till some day they just cut it loose
Cut it loose or let it drag ’em down,
Where no one asks any questions,
or looks too long in your face,
In the darkness on the edge of town.

Some folks are born into a good life,
Other folks get it anyway, anyhow,
I lost my money and I lost my wife,
Them things don’t seem to matter much to me now.
Tonight I’ll be on that hill ’cause I can’t stop,
I’ll be on that hill with everything I got,
Lives on the line where dreams are found and lost,
I’ll be there on time and I’ll pay the cost,
For wanting things that can only be found
In the darkness on the edge of town.

Ursula and Cruella summoned to Maleficent’s Forbidden Fortress by a mysterious person (That rhymes with KumpelGilskin). It’s a classic “gather the participants together” tropes (Like the movie “Murder on the Orient Express” or “Clue”). Was the summon note written in magical squid ink, I wonder?

Cruella breaths magical smoke to beguile or enchant creatures.

Cruella’s Hell hounds?

8:15 going to 8:16 again.

Starting over – again.

Things are Changing in Storybrooke theme.

Henry is back at school. Henry taking the bus. Regina is letting go of the control of Henry. Good steps for Regina.

We see Snow teaching what appears to be High School students. We see notes about birds on the chalkboard and she is holding a bird on her finger, which hearkens back to the Pilot.

Regina returns to the Mayor’s office. She “hotly” removes the picture Snow put up.

Granny is Neal’s babysitter.

Emma suits up and grabs the Sheriff’s badge to reclaim that role.

Hook gets Emma coffee to start her day. Very progressive.

We see that Gold’s Pawn Shop is Closed.

Hook is very frustrated about the Fairies being trapped in the hat, and especially the fact that he had a hand in it.

Belle let’s him know that between the internet and “the finest minds in the world,” they would find a way to rescue the Fairies from the magical hat.

Rumple is living in New York, sponging off Ursula to put his plan together to return to Storybrooke.

It appears that Cruella’s husband is being apprehended for some kind of crime the FBI is involved with. Tax Evasion?

Cruella Feinberg.

Cruella lost all she had, like Rumpel and Ursulla (Maleficent, too). Maybe the similarity of the group’s plight, might help the Queens of Darkness join in with Rumpel’s plan.

Rumpel being outside of Storybrooke was more boring than I was expected. I wanted him to get back to Storybrooke (so did he, I’ll bet). 🙂

Rumpel talks about Heroes and Villians in the storybook getting their “just desserts”. He wants to change the odds. He hasn’t learned that if someone could, they already would have. His ego will be another element that will be his undoing.

Mr. Clucks (a nod to Lost) makes an appearance.

I love the fact that with as much power as the three evil characters had wielded in Fairy Tale Land, now they are stuck in a drive through to eat drive through chicken.

Emma, on the other hand, is trying to eat healthier with a (Non-Granny’s) Kale salad.

Big Love. Take what you need and pass it on.
