Unfortunately sometimes we have to cut some letters for time. These are the ones for “Bleeding Through”. Sorry we ran short.
Hi AnneMArie and Bill,

Dear Bill and Ann Marie.
This week I decided to give the episode 700 Crushed Charming Heart out of 1000 Crushed Charming heart. This episode was really well done. I enjoyed the acting, and the pacing of the episode. There was only one moment that did have a negative impact on my rating which was Henry telling Emma that he was going to play Gameboy. The reason why I this line did affected me so much that it took my attention away from the episode. Was because I find really difficult to believe that henry can even own a Gameboy. I’ll admit I do play video game every once in a while. So in 2012 it took me several weeks to find and purchase The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy the video game that came out in 2006. I cannot imagine how long it would take to find a Gameboy system that came out in 1989. If one is looking through the main stream stores the best one can do is to purchase a Gameboy Advance in GameStop, and Gameboy Color in amazon.com. These are later
edition to the Gameboy handheld system they are not the original which is what I would assume Henry own. Only way one can purchase a Gameboy is in EBay, or in a pawn shop.
I would like to say that Henry probably purchased it in one of the shop in town , but he didn’t show any interest in playing video games in season 1 and 2. I find it unlikely that he owned the system in that season. Now if he did purchased it during the missing year, it would been incredibly difficult to locate, and it would been easier for Emma to buy him a Nintendo 3ds, or Sony PS Vista. At the same time he could have received the game system when he came to town, but the only known location that this transaction could have occurred is in Gold’s shop. If that was the case I can imagine Belle given Henry the system for free in order to better connect to him especially after she learned that rumple was enslaved by Wicked Witch, and Neal had passed away. Since this didn’t happened, I am going to assume he didn’t receive it here. Don’t misunderstand me, I love the fact that Henry is a gamer, but I felt that him owning that system left to many
pointless questions open.
Outside of this moment I felt the rest of episode was pretty good. I am sorry Bill, but my favorite moment was Emma telling Hook that she no longer trusted him after she learned about the curse that was placed on him. Honestly Hook falling for the Wicked Witch threat was the single most stupidest descision any character has made so far this season. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the people who Emma loves is already endangered, and nothing that Hook could do will be able to change that fact. At least when Mary Margret hired Zelena, she can at least say that she was being naïve, but Hook doesn’t have that excuse. He knows what Wicked Witch is capable of, and what her plans were, but he continued to keep it a secret. It for that reason why I agree with Emma that he did lose their trust by committing this action. Outside of this I wonder if Mary Margret does have the ability to perform magic, since Glenda thought she was a witch. What do
you guys think?

Nice episode for Regina, I enjoyed her scenes and nice twist that she broke the curse and the charming family casted it. Love the show but a few things bothered me… are we ignoring the whole spot on snows heart thing from when she killed Cora? Because she had no problems going through that pure heart door. Also, when the flying monkeys attacked and the heroes started shooting, I was thinking oh now, they are killing their friends! ….p.s. Neal Cassidy, the bird whisperer
Hi Annemarie and Bill,
I am sorry for being all over the place. My thoughts just won’t straighten out.
I love the round table scene. Seeing Grumpy and his fun one liners as well as Regina wondering why Robin is still there. This is the Once I love.
It is great to see Regina happy with Robin.
Glinda! Good witch of the south in the North, too funny.
The book, the book, it’s all about the book.
Henry is finally getting to the point of being done with all the lying. Will he finally remember? I have been saying for weeks now that I want Henry back.
Aaaaand he remembers, before auntie takes him.
I was yelling at the TV when Snow was saying they needed to enact the curse. This was not a twist I saw coming, but we know charming is in Storybrooke.
Seriously! Snow killed charming and than she split her heart. This is getting way too complicated.
And may I say, NEIL DID IT!
This episode is definitely having me come out of my chair. Lots of things going on and answers given to a few of our questions.
This episode was far beyond epic. It is my favorite of the entire series. I love Regina and Robin in ef, they’re snark was great, and so much kissing in sb haha. Aurora and Phillip are now monkeys. Glinda was super hot but underutilized. Snoe casting the curse brings the show full circle, as does Regina breaking the curse, qnd henry getting his belief from the book. Glad Neal sent the letter and potion. Does Snows belief make the book appear? Did her belief “write” the book? Also footwear is the 2nd most powerful magic xD and all i have left to say is.. Rumple Bumple. Infinite/100 luscious lips. Oh my sweet lord this episode was so amazing i could talk about it forever!! Can’t wait for the Podcast!!!
