The campy-ness of OUAT and Revenge on the same night is just awesome. There are definitely annoying OUAT storylines but I can't stop watching this show for some reason.
Let me chime in that Henry is one hell of a brat, even to Emma.

Henry is idealistic and somewhat naive but I don't see how that translates to bratty? If you are refering to the way he interacts with Regina then please consider the fact that she is killing and imprisoning people and Henry seems to be able to perceive her schemeing on some intrinisic level.
Regina get very little sympathy from me.

I don't think that's intentional on Henry's side, although from what I can see, there is a tendency for Henry to push other people to do what he wants for better or for worse. That's what I consider quite bratty, and he does it to everyone all the time (at least his characterization is consistent), to the point of endangering himself. Naivety may be the better word, I concede.
The Regina-Henry dynamic is much more complicated than brat-kid-hates-adoptive-mom, so I wouldn't get into that.

Been around many 10-11 year old children recently? They are very certain of the rightness of their actions and have a difficult time seeing the grey in anything. Their world is very "black and white" and everything is "right or wrong". It's interesting to see the moral certainty I remember feeling at that age come out in my daughter who is reaching that age.

But even if I find it sad, I think she deserves to die, but still I found it sad.
I think that Cora is somewhat like the Samuel (Man in Black). In younger years he was the good one, because something happened. But still years later he is evil, so he needed to die.

I will miss Cora though. Cora was a just so good at being bad. I found her a more interesting villain then Regina. With Regina I always had a hard time understanding why the towns people didn't at the very least lock her up. Sure she was trying to change, but she was guilty of about 1,000 murders, not to mention the mass kidnapping, and general horribleness. That she was aloud to keep her freedom to me always seemed ridiculous.
But Cora was completely at ease with her villain ways, and the protagonists where always at ease with viewing her as a villain. It's nice to have a good old fashion villain in a fairy tale. I will miss Cora, part of me hopes she has a way of coming back, because she added a nice flavor to the mix.
Now if the decide to kill off Hook, I'd be A-OK with that. He has to be the most one dimensional character on the show.

So yeah, you have a kid who's the grandson of Snow White and Prince Charming, and Rumplestilskin and the son of Peter Pan, and raised by the evil queen...yeah that kid is going to have some attitude issues.

Oh, this is why I love Regina - when you're there feeling bad for her, she just goes and tries to kidnap a kid. Amazing. But having to live in a loop, where she's the only one aware of how everything is repeating itself, no wonder she's slightly mad. I still can't believe that Rumple didn't know who he was, but on the other hand he did say he was cursed and that was why he couldn't leave town without that spell. So, I suppose he only remembered who he was in the first season because Emma's arrival weakened the curse?
This episode, more than any other, felt so much like LOST that I wanted to cry.
Now, if Snow White is just going whining and sobbing all the time I'd rather they get rid of Dark!Snow, so annoying. I can't see how they can keep this show going past the third season, the way things are getting sorted out at a relatively fast pace.
Okay, I missed the second half of tonight's episode. The boy "Owen" is the guy who failed kill Hook with his car, right? What else happened?
Edited because only when I woke up this morning did I remember this should be spoiler-tagged

Thank you. Finally saw the rest of the episode.
Regina is so fundemtally broken that she has I suspect
Regina needs to die. If she does not die she will continue ro hurt people. Then again perhaps Morality operates in a different fashion in FTL. A dichotimous manner rather than a scale with grey in the center? Hence, Snow's heart. However, forgiveness has to play a part in that morality. That's, I think, the primary theme of this season where faith/belief was of the first season. Genuine forgiveness. To heal the heart not only does the person wronged have to forgive but person who commited the wrong needs to forgive themself as well.

I don't get how she adopted Henry? Was she able to leave SB?
