It's interesting that Emma's sentence is long enough to make sure she's still in prison when she gives birth. I'd call it convenient, but it feels better than that. It feels magical. I'm glad Henry's father loved Emma. I am angry at August (and a little bit at Neal, but mostly at August) and can't wait for Emma to find out how he screwed with her life. I'm starting to think he played a part in getting Henry placed in Storybrooke. I understand the curse needs to be broken, and she needed to get on the straight and narrow, but still, setting her up like that is deplorable. He didn't have any trouble convincing Neal to go along with his plan, so whether or not Neal is Bae or the White Rabbit, he's got to be from a magical realm. Perhaps these two could have talked to Emma instead of setting her up to take the fall for Neal's crime. I've read the arguments on our boards and understand them, but I'm not a big fan of the ends justifying the means. If Emma's destiny is an actual destiny, then she's destined to do it. I sure wish I knew what was in August's box. I don't think his old type writer would have convinced Neal that quickly. Obstreperous Ostrich: "Obviously."
I'll be back Monday morning with coverage of "Child of the Moon." In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where we've got Hook. In chains.
