once upon a time season III; a summary.
The thing about the movie ‘Hook’ though, was that Peter Pan was still allowed to have been an epic figure even as a child. He was legendary on his own merits as a boy and then became a failure of an adult. And he had to get back in touch with that magical youth still inside him in order to succeed in the end.
In this version, they absolutely deconstructed the notion that a child could accomplish extraordinary feats on their own, tied the creation of Peter Pan back to Rumpelstiltskin (because he has to be the cause of EVERYTHING on this fucking show apparently), and absolutely flushed the relevance of Wendy, Tinker Bell, and Hook to his life down the drain.
OUAT also totally cheapened the reason Pan didn’t want to age, whereas in the movie ‘Hook’, they stayed much truer to the original version. He was a very intuitive child who didn’t want to grow up and conform to his parents’ expectations. When he got older and decided to return, he believed he’d been replaced and ‘forgotten’ and was too heartbroken to stay. On this show, he’s just some silly, booze-addled hobo who dreamed about flying and got tricked by some weird shadow thingy. And again, his storyline is meant purely as a throwback to his son abandoning his grandson. Because all of Rumple’s shitty actions have to be traced back to somebody else now *smh*
I’m sorry, but if the writers honestly think they’re paying homage to the movie ‘Hook’ with this plot twist, they did a really sub-par job.
Rio Kamishiro outfit appreciation
(maybe i forgot 2 or 3 outfits from the Sports Tournament)
maybe i make a second part
are pugs even real or did someone just dream them into existence after a bad acid trip
I SPIT OUT MY TEA
It’s probably the exception because it would have stood in the way of letting Pan turn out to be Rumple’s Daddy. Which makes the plot twist 100x harder to swallow doesn’t it? -.-
