Was Once Upon a Time almost ready for Benedict Cumberbatch?

Way back in Season One of Once Upon a Time we met Sheriff Graham, played by (Now Fifty Shades of Gray star) Jamie Dornan, who turned out to be…

The Huntsman, but Sheriff Graham almost resembled another sleuth in Fairy Tale Story Character Land.

The Hound Of The Baskervilles-17

Once Upon a Time is broadening its universe beyond fairy tales this season, adding a historical legend (Mulan) and literary creations (Capt. Hook, Lancelot). So who else might possibly show up in Storybrooke? We ran some Disney-owned and public domain characters past showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to get the scoop…Sherlock Holmes? Kitsis: “Here’s something interesting. Originally the sheriff was Sherlock Holmes. He was going to be a detective and his curse was he was in a town with no mystery. So he was this bored sheriff. And there was a rights issue so we could not get it.”
Everybody else is doing it. Horowitz: “Everybody else overcame it.” Kitsis: “But now we’re so in love with the BBC’s Sherlock, I don’t want to even play in that arena. We’ll never have Sherlock unless Benedict Cumberbatch wants to come on.” From http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/10/21/once-upon-jack-sparrow/

Ask Regina’s Garden Gnome – 108

“Mr. Gnome…..

The number 108 is prevalent through out the Eastern philosophies and Indian religions. The Buddhist believe that there are 108 defilements and 108 earthly temptations that a human being MUST overcome to achieve Nirvana, or personal liberation. The Mayor Regina Mills’ address is 108 Mifflin St……..
My question is…. Have you witnessed any of these defilements or temptations that our poor Sheriff Graham, obviously, did not survive??….lol?” Manny

Gnome- Dude, that was a long question. Actually, yes I have. You know that old Yoko Ono album (you know the one I mean)? Regina loves it. I mean she LOVES it. She plays it alot (Especially this one), and I’m not sure the defilement scale of something like that, but it must be off the charts. Poor Sheriff Graham used to wear earplugs to block out the sound of it. Regina would get so mad at him and scream, “Can you hear me, Graham??” I’m fairly sure that it wasn’t love that brought Emma and Graham together, it was the lack of Yoko Ono’s album at Emma’s house. Ok, that and those pants and boots Emma wore. Just sayin’

OUAT – Wolf comparison Screencaps and theories

So, here is the Wolf that blocked Emma from leaving Storybrooke:

and here are screencaps of the wolf in “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”. This is from Sheriff Graham’s dream:

on the Storybrooke main street:

So, it appears that the two main wolves we have seen are two different wolves. Let’s say for the sake of conversation that the wolf in the Pilot episode is a real wolf (no matter what Mr. Gold said), but who (or what is the second wolf we (or Graham, actually) saw in Storybrooke? Let’s go strictly by color schemes in clothing. Suspect #1:

Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold

Suspect #2:

The Evil Queen/Regina

Suspect #3:

Red Riding Hood/Ruby

We’ll keep an eye on this, for sure. #rubywatch

Who else? What do you think? Who/What is the second wolf?

OUAT – First Thoughts “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”

Lots of Indiana Jones connections;
Graham and Emma searching for a “treasure” in the tomb, just like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (that really wasn’t the last… anyways).
Evil Queen says, “All I have to do is squeeze,” when she was clutching the Huntsman heart. Indiana Jones said the same thing to Elsa.
Evil Queen did a Mola Ram on The Huntsman.

Oh yeah, Regina Mills. Maybe is the Miller’s daughter from Rumpelstiltskin? Hmm?

Lost connections;
Wolf red and black eye. Locke’s eyes were white and black in Claire’s dream.
The reveals of the Fairy Tale lives are very Lost like. Just sayin’

Evil Queen and Rumpelstiltskin had black and red in their clothing choices alot.

Those stairs that Regina took must have been really long, because based on the tunnel from the collapsed Mine tunnel down to the forest floor (where Snow White’s casket was) was a looooong way down. I hope she brought some water.

We find another connecting point to the Fairy Tale world (How many more will we find?), although I was a bit upset that it was the same looking crypt in Storybrooke that connected to the same looking crypt in Fairy Tale land. I’m happy that the first was a random elevator shaft.

Jeff’s ramblings:

Lots of CG backgrounds and creatures used. Thanks George Lucas for the inspiration.

That’s it for now. Loved the episode. Stay tuned for the podcast.
