Was behind all Fall. Just finished a 5 episode marathon (all in a row). I think season 2 is fine so far. Now with Cora and Hook coming to Storybrooke, it should have a different dynamic.

I just caught up over break as well. My biggest complaint this season is I am having a hard time keeping all the timelines and flashbacks straight. At least we have one less world to keep up with now. (I hope!)

Ok, I had a hard time with this one. I understand
Spoiler:
Regina's mother posing as Regina to convince everyone that Regina killed Jimminy. But the whole thing with the Jimminy look-alike did not make sense to me. So Regina's mother found someone to pose as Jimminy; sneak into Jimminy's house and pose for Jimminy's dog, who was not suspicious at all; and stay posing when killed. Just does not make sense.

That was just over the edge for me. The logistics of doing such a con is staggering.

Go figure that Jiminy's death was a Red Herring.

I agree with Holydoc the logistics of Cora pulling the switcheroo with a fake Jiminy didn't really make any sense.

I did enjoy the confrontation scene between Emma and Regina. In a way I kind of felt bad for Regina, but in the grand scheme of things she's the Evil Queen for a reason. The flashbacks in this episode showed that her other persona was pretty merciless, especially with Snow.

I just find it funny how easily Emma swings all the way from on absolute certainty to another. I get that the vision of Regina killing Jiminy was the final nail in the coffin but I would have appreciated some reluctance from Emma. After all, I would think this would totally make her finally doubt her confidence in her ability to sense the truth.

By the way, I know he's a regular on Revolution but did they ever write out Sydney Glass? Or did he just go to wherever unimportant characters in Storybrooke go until they're suddenly needed?
