So if Rapunzel is in Storybrook now, will they remember meeting her. Will she remember them?

So I guess the poster in the other thread was right. Zelena steals blood to get around blood locks and is quite possibly not Regina's sister. Of course, if it's that easy, why hadn't anyone ever considered before that blood locks aren't all that after all?

She had to steal blood from Rumple because she's obviously not related to him. So all the "Rumple's her father" people just got negated. That's the only other blood spell that's been done.

Thank you ABC marketing, for your dumb hashtags spoiling the appearance of Rapunzel.

Wow, they need to find more excuses for getting Emma into her princess gown and make-up.

I think the Wicked Witch makes a much better villain than Regina at this point and I've really enjoyed the show since the break.

Regina has been made too soft. Henry has ruined her. It doesn't help that the uber hot actress who plays Regina plays her a bit corny when she is being the Evil Queen.

This ep was ok. The previous ep was better.

Rapunzel was pretty but a very poor actress.

I didn't think much of the look they created for Rapunzel's long hair. I guess they were too cheap or too rushed to make it look convincing in CGI.
