Michael Raymond-James tweeted that Neal will return in the 14th episode titled Manhattan and in the remaining episodes of season 2. He went on toe say that “answers are coming soon” regarding whether Neal is a storybook character or he met Emma by accident. About a third season appearance, he tweeted, “It’s possible. Depends mostly on scheduling.”

Network’s blurb: When Regina is accused of murder, everyone assumes the worst… except for Emma. Meanwhile, in the fairytale world, Snow and Charming must decide what to do with the Evil Queen once they’ve brought her to justice.
It has been a month since we last stopped by Storybrooke to see what was happening with these tormented fairy tale characters and you would think there would be some kind of lull in-between the Queen of Hearts and this week’s episode. However, barring from a little nookie time and a party to celebrate the return of Snow and Emma, things are just as bad as they ever have been.
Who can we blame for this? Regina’s Mom, of course. She kicked up a mess of trouble for her daughter by disguising herself as her daughter and then killing Jiminy Cricket and forcing the town to turn their back on her. The only person in her corner is Emma.
We did learn that all this mess we have been watching could have been nipped in the bud if Snow allowed Regina to be executed. Forgiveness can be a bitch. We also learned that the person to plant the seed of creating Storybrooke was Rumplestiltskin. Why? We’re not sure, but it gave Regina another chance to exact her revenge on Snow. Yes, yes… I know it was a way to find his long lost son.
It is sad to see Regina suffer for a crime she did not commit, which forces Henry to lose any hope that his adoptive mother had any good in her, but I am intrigued to see what Regina’s next steps are.
Also, if you saw that last few seconds than you know Jiminy is a-okay. Hooray!
Finally, I have to reiterate that the one of the few saving graces for this show is Rumplestiltskin/Gold. Robert Carlyle is pure magic and he is one of two reasons why I keep watching this show, the other being Jared Gilmore, who portrays Henry.
Next week: S2:Ep.11 – The Outsider
Gold conducts an experiment to see if he can find a way across the town border without losing his memory. Meanwhile, Mary Margaret and David go house-hunting and Belle finds Hook in Storybrooke. In the fairytale world, Belle and Mulan meet for the first time as they try to stop a beast ravaging the land.
Synopsis: Hank’s newfound knowledge of the Wesen world leads him to question an arrest he made earlier in his career; Monroe deals with an unexpected situation at the spice shop.
Recap of last night’s season finale of Lost Girl – Flesh and Blood
Synopsis: Concerned that Bo’s plan is too risky, Trick offers Bo one more weapon for her own, and everyone else’s, safety. Bo must lead her friends into battle ahead of schedule when her hand is forced by their enemy. A revelation from Dyson provides Bo with ammunition, but another’s deceit threatens the mission. Prophecies come true… but at what cost?
So, I am kind of ambivalent about last night’s episode. Yes, the storyline revolving around the Garuda was wrapped up with a tiny, shiny red Bo-w.
Let’s go over what I liked:
The relationship, friendship or whatever it is between Kenzi and Hale was thrust to the forefront as Kenzi’s life was at stake. There is a genuine bond, if it is just sidekicks uniting under the duress of potential catastrophic quests or just two individuals slowly becoming more than just friends… it is truly a joy to watch these two be there for one another.
When Kenzi was sliced, the pain and worry in Hale’s face said it all.
Vex is the foil to everything that the Good guys attempt to do. Yet, he does it in such a way that you end up liking him. Yes, he can be annoying, but that is part of his charm. He gives scenes a comedic twist when it needs it the most, just as Kenzi does day in, day out.
The little double-entendres exchanged between Vex and everyone had me laughing, but it was that moment when he realized that he indeed had to join in the fray to assist in the slaying of the Garuda that had me cheering him on.
By the way, Bo had ample chances to inject the Garuda (especially when Dyson had him by the throat). Why wait it out? This leads me to what I did not like…
The Garuda storyline left me wanting a bigger, splashier finale.
What we got, was the backstory of when everything first went to pot. That moment when Trick’s right hand man signed the death warrant of Trick’s wife and thus propelling the fae world into such a bad luck streak that it is still has not recovered.
The backstory of Trick was interesting, but it could have been conveyed in a different medium or just by these two men talking and forcing Trick to realize that everything has been somewhat his fault. It felt drawn out and the re-enactment was a bit too much.
Then there is the “Who will Bo choose?” scenario. She made her choice, Lauren, but Dyson is not giving up without a fight. This is what the fans love, but in hindsight… the most fun we had over the past season was when she was with Ryan. That is what I want to see, Bo having fun, even if it leads to insane moments. There is some joy in watching her contend with someone that matches her in almost every way. Both Lauren and Dyson are a bit too emotionally heavy, even though I will love seeing these two try to outmatch one another as they vie for Bo’s attention.
One of the major highlights from last night was that we will indeed have a third season and it will be coming to us in January.
That makes us wonder about what will come in the third season, well there are five obvious story arcs:
- 1. Bo is still housing a little bit of the corrupt essence within her. How that affects her day-to-day job as a private investigator, protector of the fae world and her relationships is yet to be scene, but I’m sure it will be interesting.
- 2. Kenzi and the nasty mosquito bite that she picked up at the Norn. Is it evil? Will it too corrupt Kenzi?
- 3. Trick’s quest to make amends for what had happened to his beloved Isabeau.
- 4. Lauren vs. Bo, it’s on.
- 5. The new Ash.
It should be a fun season.
…September 30, 2012!
I guess that we are going to see some Snow flashbacks on Once Upon a Time because Bailee Madison confirmed on Twitter that she will be reprising her role as young Snow White in season two of Once Upon A Time.
