Just watched episode 03..
I would need to go double check the other episodes.. But I think we have a Couch Gag
.. the title with the forest, whatever is lurking in the woods seems to change. It's not entirely clear, but this one seems to be either Bandit!Snow or a Troll
I know they're playing with Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane
, but damn I hope they don't go with mundane, or try to stretch it for the whole series. I'm hoping for some outright magic elements showing up sooner or later in Story Brooke
Almost certain that the sheriff is a/the Big Bad Wolf
. The beard was my first clue. His statements and skills in this episode seem to hint more at that. I'll be damned if he wasn't tracking by scent there...
He could also be a The Huntsman
, but my preference is for the former. (Maybe both? :D )
Regina seems to be putting villain characters in positions of power, (or at least that was the supposition back in ep02 for that big group on the first try) but I think there are enough shades of grey on certain characters, even villains, that some of them might be Becoming the Mask
for having been there so long. A sheriff is supposed to be upright, following moral guidelines. He's clearly under her sway, but his actions in this episode don't exactly lockstep with the Mayor's plans, especially regarding Henry.
