Enchanted Forest. Atop their trusty steeds, Prince Phillip and a companion whose face is obscured by a helmet (but it's totally Mulan, so I'm not going to waste 15 minutes of your time or mine pretending I don't already know that) tear across the landscape. They finally reach the neglected castle where the lovely Aurora lies in cursed, if sweet repose. Phillip and Mulan slash their way through the thorns that have grown up around the place. Phillip circles his love and finally kisses her, but before he does, he cautions Mulan that if his kiss breaks the curse, they can't tell Aurora everything right away. Of course his kiss works, because true love conquers all. As the happy couple smooches some more, a jealous Mulan averts her gaze and wanders off.
When Aurora wonders how long she's been asleep, Phillip obfuscates. Now they're together, they can restore their castle and kingdom. He won't explain what he means, and instead insists that his beloved needs her rest. Um? To give her her due, Aurora's reaction is similar to mine, just more princessly. Phillip waves off his girl's valid point and says that while Maleficent can no longer harm them, they must join their people in a new safe haven. There are new dangers now, but nothing they can't handle. I'd be furious with my husband if he was so unforthcoming with me, but Aurora is young. She'll learn. The most important part of this scene seems to be Aurora's comment about Maleficent. Apparently the most deliciously wicked Disney villain of all time went after Aurora's mother before setting her sights on Aurora. For now, I'm letting that throwaway line quell my concerns that this episode screwed up the timeline established in "The Thing You Love Most," which is good, because it's way too early in the season for me to summon my ire.
