a bit of OUAT thoughts

I have a feeling that the show-runners are going to kill me.
Don't get me wrong - I enjoy the show, but sometimes my negative emotions just get the best of me. I know, most people just watch the show and get over disturbing moments easily. I should learn to take it easy too. Maybe later.

Zelena's magical re-appearance caught me off-guard. I had been anticipating a flash-back to OZ or smth similar, but I was completely unprepared for the drama that filled the hospital scenes. Oh those scenes! Zelena's behaviour was disgusting, horrifying and so disturbing I nearly turned my TV off. I was scared. I wanted to run as far as could. Poor Rumple, he couldn't. His breathing, his heartbeat and him flatlining because of Zelena's behaviour were overwhelming. That was an awesome piece of acting, but it scared and drained me emotionally.

And the last episode made me even more upset and frustrated! Yeah, I know, I was too naive to actually think that Regina was a good girl. I didn't expect her to backslide like that! I mean, it's believable that she might use any means available to do what she thinks she has to do, but taking Belle's heart and making her say what she said - that was too much for me.
The well scene was the first scene they actually talk to each other. *sobs* And Belle has no memories about it now! *sobs* I loved how he showed her his heart. Intimate and sweet moment...and Belle has no memories about it! *sobs again*
Again, that was an awesome piece of acting, but it upset and drained me emotionally.
I hope tonight's episode brings a bit of light into the ocean of sadness and frustration I artificially created around myself.

A bit of lovely Belle to cheer up sobbing me and all who read through my ranting.

I ask myself, every week, why I still tune in. :\ And I hate that it's become such an awful show that I feel that way! I keep watching because I keep hoping this nonsense is suddenly going to make sense! Like, was Emma having all of this as one fantastic nightmare after season 3A?

Heh, yeah, agreed, that's why I've started making myself "oh look how pretty the Rumbelle hair is!" posts and "look how gently he touches her!" so I can focus on the wonderfulness that RC and EdR bring to these roles despite the awful writing!

If it helps, there is some really good meta here: http://standbyyourmantis.tumblr.com/tagged/rape-tw
if you scroll back a bit that addresses just how messed up and triggery Zelena's treatment of Rumple is. I too found it INCREDIBLY triggering when she had him pinned in that hospital bed. They've never dealt with him being held captive and molested by her by a year, or all the psycho-sexual torture she put him through. And now she's back. I can't blame Rumple for anything since then, not fully, not when he's still under threat from her.

And agreed on Regina too--I lost all respect for both her as a character and for her supposed redemption arc when she did that to Belle.

I'll have to take a look later at that link. It's killing me how they've slaughtered their characters. :(

I'm so mad at Regina after last night's ep! Much more mad now.

And I want to slaughter Cora. Slowly and extra cruelly. I hate it when she decides upon Regina's happiness without actually consulting Regina. Regina is still a bitch, but I feel for her when I see her dearest mommy :(

I sometimes want to say "That's it. I'm out", but then after some time I starve for a new ep. again.

I think I'd rather have a bad show than have no show at all...
