On last night’s episode of Once Upon a Time, we learned that kick-ass Asian warrior Mulan is secretly in love with Princess Aurora, which, when you think about it is HUGE. Disney – DISNEY! – just allowed one of their most popular character to become gay! And ABC – who just a few short years ago REFUSED to let Adam Lambert’s same sex-kiss be televised – endorses it! You could have knocked me over with some pixie dust. Of course, her love is unrequited: Aurora loves Prince Philip. But that’s just for now. Maybe Disney is just testing the waters to gauge audience reaction. Maybe in a month or so we’ll get some hot Disney Princess-on-Princess action. Maybe it really does get better! Maybe it really is A WHOLE NEW WOOOOOORLD!

I was done. Over it. I had washed my hands of this stupid show forever. The cast was too big, the plots were too convoluted, and the “back in fairy-tale-land” stuff always stopped the action dead and felt like filler. Season 2 was a mess. And I never quite forgave them for killing off Jamie Dornan in Season 1. But somehow here I am, back and loving it. Season 3 is off to a roaring start. Robbie Kay’s super-creepy take as Peter Pan is really, really fun. He’s evil… and he has big ears! My two favorite things! And that Robin Hood recast of theirs, Sean Maguire (below, left), is truly scrumptious. Better than Errol Flynn, I’m just going to say it. Throw in the still-humpy Hook, and yes, even that bland little marshmallow Prince Charming, and I’m completely happy with the show again.
Step aside, Jack Sparrow. There’s a new guyliner-wearing pirate setting up shop in my booty. Colin O’Donaghue as Captain Hook was absolutely brilliant on last night’s Once Upon a Time. I was thisclose to giving up on the show. The whole “two realities blending into one but the story world still exists” crap is so beyond high concept that it’s just confusing. But Hook reeled me right back in. He’s devilishly handsome and utterly roguish and more fun than a dozen Rumpelstiltskins. Possibly my new favorite character of the fall season? What did you think?
The pretty little Pretty Little Liars actor will play Sleeping Beauty’s smitten Prince Philip, described as a young, selfless hero who’s the veteran of many tough journeys. “Chuffed to be a part of #OnceUponATime next season!” Julian tweeted. Yeah, he’s cute, but I’m still smarting over the decision to kill off the Huntsman last season. I don’t know if I can give my heart to another character on that show EVER AGAIN. (via TV Guide)
Well, THAT was an unexpected delight! BOOM! There he was! Thirty seconds into the episode! After being dead for months and months and months. And suddenly the show was worth watching again! Suddenly I have hope for next season! Suddenly I had to change my underwear, HE’S THAT HANDSOME! Even handsomer than he was before, if such a thing is possible. Do you think now that THE MYSTERIOUS PURPLE FOG has BROUGHT MAGIC BACK TO STORYBROOK (I can’t believe I am seriously typing these words) that the Huntsman might LIVE AGAIN? Pleeeeease. Josh Dallas is cute, but he can’t carry the whole show. #bring jamie back for good.
Been there, buddy. (via Sissy Dude)
