Once Upon a Time Season 3, Episode 9 Burning Questions
We love all of Once Upon a Time’s many, many mysteries, but sometimes it seems like each episode introduces more questions than answers. To that end, we’ve tackled the 10 biggest questions from this week’s episode in order to make sense of everything that happened.
We had hoped that Pan would be thwarted once Gold traps him in the box, but alas, Pan switched bodies with Henry. We’re not sure when people will get wise to the switch, but we’re hoping Gold has some kind of spell to reverse this. And are we the only ones who are being reminded of the ‘90s action movie Face/Off, where Nicolas Cage and John Travolta trade bodies? Let’s just hope no one gets killed with a spear gun onOUAT like in that movie.
2. Will Gold kill Pan?
A lot of the evil folks on this show end up being redeemed and don’t have to die. But we’re thinking that won’t be the case for Peter, much like how Cora was killed last season. But will Peter actually die? We’d love to see Gold kill him, even though it can’t be easy for Gold to have to kill his own father.
3. Will the dagger be involved with Pan leaving?
We keep remembering the prophecy about Henry being Gold’s undoing, so we’re assuming that will come into play again somehow. We’re hoping that the prophecy just means that Henry will be the end of Gold being the dark one, so perhaps Gold will get rid of Pan by somehow offering him the dagger.
4. Why is Felix so freakin’ loyal to Pan?
It was very sweet to see the Lost Boys finally reveal Pan’s locations to Emma once she promised them families. But for some reason, Felix wasn’t swayed. So why the heck is he such besties with Pan? And will we be seeing more of Felix’s backstory?
We’re relieved that David appears to be okay for the time being, even as Hook’s ship makes its way to Storybrooke. So we’re hoping that the water can keep him alive until Gold has a chance to get his elixir. That said, we’re worried that there might be a complication with the elixir. As we all know, on this show, there are always complications.
6. Would Pan have taken Henry’s heart as a newborn?
It’s quite the unexpected twist to see that Michael and John Darling were this close to adopting Henry, had Regina not had her change of heart (so to speak). Does this mean that Pan would have pulled Henry’s heart out of him as a little infant? If so, Pan is even more ruthless than we realized.
7. Shouldn’t Regina have had a few regrets for all the killing she’s done?
We get that Regina needed to be regret-free to bust through those vines, not to mention that she’s so grateful to have Henry. Still, given that Regina values being a mother, you’d think she’d have some regrets for the way she’s tormented little kids, like Owen or Hansel and Gretel. Plus, we regret the fact that she killed the smokin’ hot Graham, but that’s just us.
8. Will Regina eventually grow closer to Neal?
Regina made it no secret this week that she isn’t necessarily on Team Neal. But we have a feeling that he might be integral in saving Henry, so we wonder if Neal will do something in the near future to make Regina respect him more.
9. Will Belle help in defeating Pan?
Belle has said that she wants Gold to rely on her more. And given how badly Gold wants to defeat Pan and save Henry, we assume Belle will help in the fight against Pan and thus continue to strengthen their relationship. But whatever Belle does, we just need our Rumbelle fix already!
10. How soon will Regina meet up with Robin Hood?
We must admit that Regina and Archie were kinda cute together this week. But although we doubt they’ll become an item, we do feel badly that Regina doesn’t currently have a special someone. So we’re hoping she’ll get to meet Robin Hood soon, in part because we just want to be able to look at the guy on our TVs more often. Yes, he’s that hot.
