I really wanted Mr. Gold to willingly lose his memory after some really low moment or even after hook stabbed him have the scarf fall off him and no one notice till it was too late.
THEN you could have had Cora and Regina in possession of the dagger but it would have be useless because he would not know himself as Rumple and not know of his magical abilities and the bad guys would be trying to play match maker with the two trying to get them to enact ture loves kiss and hopefully bring their memories back and in that time the charmings could be trying to reclaim the dagger.
I thought the same thing about Gold losing his memory after sinking too low! He was making some seriously messed up decisions, and I thought he'd go do some kind of blank slate thing so he could start over and be with Belle, or something like that. I hadn't thought about Cora and Regina playing matchmaker though, that would've been really cute!
It totally should have been true love's kiss (or some other action, like a sacrifice, or... breaking... something. idk. In fairy tales it's often something weird, like throwing a frog against a wall, or a marriage lol), not some stupid potion!
I cried when I saw this episode!!! It was so sad. I am in love with them!!! I hate the "Lacey" HATE HATE HATE Her!!!!! I know that they will find a way to bring her memories back!!! I love the picture, really captures the tragedy.
Second, I understand what they are trying to do but I think there is a better way of going about it that would keep the fans interested rather than worried about where the show is heading.
The main problem is that the fans are creating much more interesting story lines and twists (usually during these long breaks between episodes) and they are getting their expectations up and the show just hasn't been delivering lately. I hope they start listening to their fans more :/
Gosh, I have exactly the same opinion! I still love to hear about what's going on on Rumbelle ship (cause I want to see them together finally!) and that's the main reason I still watch this show.
It's the trouble with most of these TV series out there - the 1st season is so good and then they start to slide down with quality. When the first season was airing I was watching each episode with jaw-drop, because costumes, because sets, because plot, because twists, because Regina/Evil Queen, and later BECAUSE RUMBELLE of course!
Now I'm watching it much less eagerly and only because I want to finally see the end of this Rumbelle angst. The other twists are starting to fail for me more and more. Even the Rumbelle-plot doesn't grow up on me lately as it used to and YES - the fanfics start to get better than the actual plot which, for me, is an unusual thing! I also hope that they'll do sth with it.
I don't remember the names cause I don't really read much of fanfiction. But I know some where the plot twists grew more on me as I was checking them out, than the actual series' plot. However I'm not an avid ff-reader so I'm not reading much of this stuff. Why do You ask?
Hm mostly because Im and avid ff-reader who just started watching the series :3 and they're like my favorite couple <3 I was so surprised when they used him for the beast, hes so different from how hes normally portrayed.
Also I haven't made it to the second season yet since I cant find it online <_< those comments on this picture... I just have to see what happens now~
