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.
