Thank you for everyone supporting our podcast by going to http://onceuponatimepodcast.com/support. We really appreciate it!


Killian on another trip for Pan while he plots to destroy the Dark One.

Mermaid songs. Siren songs. We’ve already seen a Siren and Mermaids.

Rocks did Ursula make them appear – with her song?

Ursula could sing – very Ariel like. She wanted her voice to make people happy, like her Mother wanted. King Triton wanted her to use her voice to lure ships toward them to destroy the person that killed her Mother.

Who killed Ursula’s Mother? Hook?

Regina removed the knife, before it harmed August, then used the threat of fire.

August – The Dragon was looking for the Author for years, then August took his research.

Gold and the Queens still don’t trust Regina completely.

Gold to search August’s trailer.

Regina pulled a play from the movie “Ghost” playbook and inhabited Snow to relay her message. She told them that Gold is in town and planning something “bad”.

In Gold’s shop. Belle now learns that she was tricked again by Gold. Emma helps Killian not act in haste.

August knew about Robin Hood, because “Just cause the boy doesn’t remember being me, doesn’t mean I didn’t remember being the boy”.

Killian calling Ursula with the Conch shell. So, it not only calls Squids, but Ursula, too. Killian to return Urs’s happy ending for info about Gold.

Young Ursula had a beautiful singing voice. Hook bought her a drink for allowing his ship to escape. She broke into King Triton’s vault and stole the bracelet to allow her to walk on land.

King Triton used to be happy, before his wife

Turned my voice into a weapon. “Love is a weapon…”

Her voice can soothe even the most haunted soul. Her voice took away the pain Hook was carrying for Milah’s death by Rumpelstiltskin.

Saving for passage to GlaworHaven (Like MistHaven?). Hook will take her.

Piece of Iridium. Something on the Jolly Roger will give her her singing voice back.

Urs was banished to this world.

King Triton can enchant items. He told Killian about the Squid Ink to paralyze, in return for Killian to steal Urs’s singing voice. Triton also wanted Killian to show her how awful human’s can be.

Will helps Killian.

Robin – is that really Robin? Or Gold? Damn nightmare.

Regina, don’t take Mal’s sleeping potion.

Gold didn’t even search August’s trailer. He got a spell from the fairies’ power (How did he do that?) to undo the magic the fairies did, like making August a real boy from wood.

Snow is worrying that Emma is turning to the dark side.

Built in lie detector potion with a nose growing booster.

August removed the page about the door, so he was hiding it from those who read it.

Sorcerer’s Mansion search.

Kind of like Sea Monkeys, but make ships in bottles grow to full size.

Killian was honest with Ursula.

Villains can’t have Happy Endings.

Killian vs. Ursula


She always slaps him.

I thought Ariel was in

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

3X13 Witch Hunt – First Thoughts – Star Wars, CSI and TeleGrumpy, Oh My!



Podcast episode 209

Shownotes can be found at onceuponatimepodcast.com/209

Witch Hunt

The victor enjoying the spoils

Zelena mentioned a family living on the worth of the gems. I wondered if they were retrieved by the seven dwarves for her?

Zelena mentioned that Regina just left them all behind, so Zelena is an opportunist. Maybe Regina will use an opportunity when Zelena is not expecting it to win her kingdom back.

Such pretty things. Wasted on her. Reminds me of a cutting joke women have said “That’s a pretty dress, too bad it’s on you”. Women can be mean.

We know what Regina thinks about sitting on her chair, but what about throwing her things on the floor. Heck, what would Eduardo Castro say?

It seems as if she hadn’t been in the castle very long and she is looking over everything for the first time. A flashback scene maybe?

Zelena brings green smoke with her.

Zelena like gray on her. I wonder what Season that is.

I wonder if Walsh is a bit like The Mirror/Genie/Sydney Glass and is in love with Zelena. Is that why he was chosen to be the right hand flying monkey?

Ruby!! She is not too trusting of Regina.

Robin’s son, Roland. So cute.

Tunnels to the castle. Under the spell. Like the old border

Lower the shield. Star Wars reference.

Regina can turn an impish flying monkey into a grey Teddy Bear or Teddy Monkey that look’s like he could be cast in a Toy Story movie.

Regina’s action begin to build a bridge of friendship in contrast to her comment to Snow about the “forest smelling” Robin Hood.

Robin saved Regina from the Flying Monkey, and Regina saved Robin Hood’s son from the next Flying Monkey. 2 misunderstood heroes. A sweet moment.

Emma, the police detective begins her questioning, except about “the obvious” condition *wink* of Snow.

Snow, “Then everything went black” or green, maybe?

Charming, “Waking up in our beds, like it was any other morning in Storybrooke”. It sounds a bit like the Storybrooke time “record skipping” in Season 1 and highlighted in Season 2’s episode “Welcome to Storybrooke”

“Almost Harvest time, but can’t remember the planting. It’s bad luck, mate” Kinda naughty, Hook.

Emma and Hook, the good cop/investigator (Emma) and the bad cop/investigator (Hook).

Hook fills in more of the gaps.

Snow stands up for Regina.

Emma’s demeanor reminds me of he during the disappearance and alleged death of Kathryn.

How Hook knew about the curse and how to find Emma. As he was sailing the realms (portal usage?), a bird landed on his ship’s wheel with a note (Exactly like it happened to Neal in “Broken”) and a vial of Memory potion tied to its leg. Jokes in Monty Python come to mind about Swallows, but how big was this bird? But Hook said he “gathered the parts” for the potion…

Message by bird is one of Snow’s method of communicating with Charming, but also August to Neal.

Down to Four. Bashful’s not answering. Maybe Sleepy is…

Team Seven need to be quicker texting Happy back.

Storybrooke folks are disappearing. That would give A&E an opportunity to have Meghan a part of the show for Season 3B, but not all the time.

Hook’s look when Neal was mentioned. “He’ll turn up, he always does” Dangit!!!

Neal may have left to find Rumpel’s estate. A Blood Magic cure for Zelena’s curse? A way to find/communicate with Rumpel? What about the enchanted Sand Dollar?

Some folks set up camp near the edge of town. Why a camp?

To get their memories back, Emma needs to find out who took them in the first place. The game is afoot. I guess there might be a bit of Sherlock Holmes in Storybrooke after all.

Belle read about Oz. “The Bookworm’s right” Regina is the new Sawyer from Lost.

East or West? Grumpy One you drop a house on, the other you throw a bucket of water on.

Regina never met Zelena, but she does know all about her.

Regina is pulling an Obi Wan (Lowering the Shield) to Charming’s Han Solo.


One woman job.

Lollipop guild is protecting her. Sweet!

The hero faces the trials alone

Ruby’s back – in my favorite outfit!


Henry not knowing anything is a fun twist. He thinks everyone jumped bail.

Phoenix. Cellmates. Banditry. OMG!

We all make mistakes. We need to find a way to move on.

Regina and Emma about Henry.

Regina’s legs make an appearance. Hashtag awesome


Regina begins to understand the pain of being under a curse. Torture.


The Merry Men in Storybrooke. Little John could help out the Walking Dead, but he stole it. That is a Walking Dead, move though. Was that Jase Robertson with them?



Wild Turkey. Was Little John drinking Wild Turkey before taking that shot?

If that was Walsh, he must be doing P90X, because you know – Little John.

Storybrooke CSI. Emma on the scene. Where was Ted Danson or Elizabeth Shue?

Crossing the town line. Flying Monkey.

Almost married a monster. Flying Monkey.

City Hall is similar to the town line group in “We are Both”. Like Daddy, like daughter. Calming the town down. When people aren’t calm the get really thirsty. There are two pitchers on the desks up front.


Regina did not cast this curse.

Dr. Whale still carries a grudge against Regina.

Emma vs. Regina – again.

Mob mentality, like in Season 2 (Twice; Dr. Whale and King George).

Zelena has blended in with the crowd, but she wasn’t with the initial Storybrooke crowd. She would have to answer lots of questions.

Robin is a hunter. The Flying Monkey wasn’t after Roland, but after Regina. Regina’s action to save Roland was even nobler.

Robin likes Regina, Robin like Regina.

Robin owes Regina a debt.

“Don’t get in my way”

Emma and Regina working together.

Replicating a memory spell.

“Thank you”

Her SuperPower works.

We – I.

Boobie Traps. Raiders of the Lost Kingdom.


Regina is flirting with Robin. Very nice.

An open door? Maybe the blood and the potion allowed Zelena to leave a trap for Regina. The crypt again.

Regina talking about the loss of Henry.

Snow reading about skin rash, while Henry plays games. Snow is acting like a Grandma. Stop that game playing! Read a book.

Zelena missed the last curse. Where is Emma’s SuperPower?

Some of us were supporting players.

Midwife. I’ve seen lots of new mothers. Working her way into Snow’s life. Will she take Snow’s baby? Like Phillip and Aurora’s?

Dragged in the forest. Little John. Walsh sprained something carrying Little John.

Robin never misses.

Sleeping Curse and Snow’s conversation reminds me of Grumpy’s conversation with Snow about her forgetting potion.

Regina, the Science Gal.

Wrong Con, Long Con. Lost.

Trapping the perp.

Telephone, Teletype, TeleGrumpy.

There goes Zelena.

So, Zombies and Flying Monkey have something in common. The bite and transformation.

OUATiW “Bloddy Hell”

Star Trek “I’m a Doctor, not a Vet”

Regina on a stakeout.

“A Hero would come back”

Bloodlock. Zelena’s using Regina’s blood.

Power on the throne.

Phantom Menace lowering the shields.

Zelena vs Regina

I had to take it in a little bit. Wow. Mean Witch.

Zelena knew Cora.

Empire Strikes Back “I’m your sister. Half sister, actually”.

Zelena was given up and sent her away.

Martyr complex.

Only man we both knew – Rumpel. He taught them both.

Zelena “Dear”

“Suffer” a Regina word.

“Fate worse them death” Rumple used the phrase about Pandora’s Box for Peter Pan.

Find something to live for. Someone to destroy. Not Snow.

“I’ve been there before”

Regina meeting Henry.

Stop for Ice Cream (at Sara’s perhaps?).

“Says the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming” Hook

Rumpel’s Back!

Rumpel “You should have never brought me back”

Zelena legs, or ankles at least.


You feed the madness and it feeds on you.

Dylan Schmid from Once Upon a Time now becomes a Zombie Fighter

Picture from http://www.timescolonist.com/saanich-teen-dylan-schmid-relishes-work-on-disney-zombie-film-1.673068

You’d think having experience confronting Peter Pan’s nemesis in fairy-tale land would be an advantage when you’re cast in a Disney movie.

Not necessarily, says Dylan Schmid. The Saanich teenager learned that while shooting Bunks, the Disney XD Canada original movie comedy about two mischievous brothers who unleash a curse at an idyllic summer camp they sneak into.

The film, produced by Fresh TV in Canada, airs on Disney XD Sunday at 5 p.m. Pacific Time.

Neither Schmid’s encounters with Capt. Hook in Once Upon a Time, ABC’s hit fantasy series in which he has a recurring role as Rumpeltstiltskin’s son Baelfire, nor enduring stone-filled tornadoes in Jason Bourque’s disaster flick Stonadoes could have prepared him for what he triggers in Bunks — a zombie outbreak in the Canadian wilderness.

“I learned a lot being part of a Disney movie,” says Schmid, noting Bunks is more about laughs and lunacy than pirates or fairies.
