OUAT Season 3 Premiere: "The Heart of the Truest Believer"

So you didn't really think that this casual blogger was gonna skip out of town and leave you without our favourite weekly TV show recaps, now did ya???? Woohoo, grab onto this ship's railings because we are going to Neverland!!!!!!!!! Now for everyone out there in the inter-webs who thinks this girl is a little crazy {might be some truth to that} and ready to close down this tab, here's a little backstory.

Once Upon A Time is my favourite airing TV show, and in season 1, I began sharing my weekly thoughts after each Sunday night episode. This became a regular segment on A Silver Snapshot, and I break down my little "thoughts" into "moments" categories {e.g. best, worst, funniest, creepiest, romantic...etc.}. So if you are a fan of the fairytale TV show {and let's be honest, if you aren't, you should be}, join me every Monday for OUAT: SEASON THREE!!!!!

  • Best Moment: Let's be honest, the best moment was those first few seconds when you realized that we were really back in the land of Storybrook/PastFairyTaleLand/PresentFairyTaleLand/Neverland/ EnchantedForest/and-all-those-other-locations-that-make-up-OUAT. The best moment was seeing familiar faces like Emma, the Charmings {James got a haircut}, Henry {got older}, Hook, Regina, and Rumplestiltskin. This is where the magic happens.
  • Worst Moment: Peter Pan is bad and creepy and has it out for Henry. Forever ruining my crush of childhood days past. However, I am intrigued as to where this next twist-on-a-stereotype-character will take us.
  • Past Moment: Do you think we'll get anymore flashbacks of the era when Emma was in prison post-baby days??? Did that flashback's only purpose serve to remind us how much Emma has grown in her position on mothering? Or was there more to it? Just curious.
  • Awkward Moment: Well at least Emma FINALLY addressed the fact with her "same-age parents" that there would be some weird parenting tension due to the "quote" same amount of life experience "unquote". Award for most-dysfunctional family for the win.
  • Magic Moment: Rumple can teleport off ship. Regina hasn't figured this magic spell out yet??? What was Rumple's purpose for going on ahead of them all?? I don't buy that it was just because Emma doesn't "believe" yet. Honestly there are so many characters, and storylines to keep up with.
  • Romance Moment: Little moment between Hook & Emma in the ship's hold. What guy doesn't want to watch a girl do chin-ups, right??? However, I think Emma will still be hung up on Neal for awhile. 
  • Enchanted Forest Moment: Useless dream world attempt by Aurora. But thanks for trying. And then why didn't Aurora and Phillip come with Neal and Mulan to Rumple's castle??? What were they doing??? Going on a date?? Plus re-cast of Robin Hood for anybody who was confused. Where is Maid Marian and Baby Hood at this point??? Anyways, now Neal knows Emma is in Neverland. Now what???
  • Funniest Moment: Neal-to-Mulan: "You're like a legend. They even made a movie about you." Silver stops to sing the chorus of "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" before continuing blogging this recap. 
  • New Character Moment: Not a new character per say, but new character foreshadowing. The hostage-now-wooden mermaid foreshadowed Ariel, and pixie dust foreshadowed TINKERBELL!!!!
  • Yay Moment: I know this is somewhat morbid, but I am SO GLAD that Greg and Tamara are out of the picture. I was getting annoyed with them and their mysterious orders and blah, blah, blah. Goodbye. Hopefully never see you again.
  • Fight Moment: Who's cat fight did you enjoy more? Snow's & Regina's??? Or Charming's & Hook's??? Luckily Emma saved the day {kinda} again.
  • Intriguing Moment: What is Rumplestiltskin's connection to Peter Pan? What is the significance of the cloth doll? And what event was the Lost Boy referring to that happened "years ago"? Another storyline for another Sunday evening.
  • Cliffhanger: Henry has a true-believer-heart {TBH for short} and is being playground bullied by Pan and the Lost Boys.
  • Next Episode: Emma & Pan meet, Snow pulls a sword out of a rock, and Belle is back for a convo with Rumple. Catch ya on the flip side!

Happy Monday!
