Quite a Common Fairy

 "An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward."

Children, assemble! Let's leave time and space at home where it belongs.

Firstly, who has two thumbs and loves an episode of "ONCE Upon A Time" that shows the cast traipsing through the jungle and them mentioning the word "lost" a bunch of times?! THIS CHICK!

I still feel like I should begin every one of my notes posts with "When I was a little girl..." because every episode of this show immediately transports me to my childhood and how I would engulf myself in whatever story I was reading at the moment. Again, each story whisked me away from the tiny apartment and the chaotic and poor life in N.Y.C., and into a magical world where I could dream, imagine, be anything or anybody I wanted... and I could even fly.

We're running with the shadows of the night. So baby take my hand, it'll be all right. Surrender all your dreams to me tonight- They'll come true in the end

Tinker Bell isn't the only one who has lost her light, her magic and her wings. They're all missing those special things- but they can get them back... if they just believe.

While these people are marked with scars that seem to stem back to their childhood and/or younger days, this wondrous and mysterious island of trickery hints to be a place that, in some bizarre way, helps one confront what ails them, and may play a role in their healing.

Regina accuses the King of his heart being with his dead wife- and we see that her heart is still with her dead fiancée. Regina can't let go of her past pain. Carrying it around is a sort of comfortable habit, and getting out of that particular habit is frightening to her.  But on the island we see that Regina is slowly realizing her habitual ways of handling things. Also she understands that her past behavior has left her with enemies, loss, without a soul mate, anger and a confused heart and mind. How is the man with the Lion tattoo part of Regina's happiness? Is he Regina's "soul mate" or just a step along the path in her getting to her soul mate?

I'm very intrigued about Peter Pan's own wants and needs and how they coincide with how the island is functioning into the current journey of the members of "Operation Henry".  Could it be that Pan and the island work together toward a common goal or are there two different agendas? And while we're at it I have to wonder about ... Henry's world.  And what's with this Felix dude?

Tinker Bell literally breaks the rules and outright points Regina in the direction on the path she needs to take to find happiness. And since Regina has found a twisted comfort in her misery, and only thinking of her own feelings, she in turn affected the lives of her soul mate and whoever else would be part of that path.

Everyone deserves a second chance. You learn through your own mistakes and the mistakes of others. And yes, every day you awaken you are given another chance to do better- to be better.  It sucks that the Blue Fairy only gives two chances and then you're out; Robin Hood only gives Bae one chance, and Tinker Bell tells Emma they only get one shot as well.  Damn! Even in baseball you get three strikes!

In my opinion you must keep on trying... trying to find your light- love- and your way home.  Home is where the heart is.

๑ The Tinkerbell Effect: is a term describing things that are thought to exist only because people believe in them. The effect is named for Tinker Bell, the fairy in the play Peter Pan who is revived from near death by the belief of the audience.

Tinker Bell: is a fictional character from J. M. Barrie's 1904 play Peter Pan and its 1911 novelization Peter and Wendy.  She has appeared in multiple film and television adaptations of the Peter Pan stories, in particular the 1953 animated Walt Disney picture Peter Pan.  She also appears in the official sequel Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean and commissioned by Great Ormond St Hospital as well as the "Peter and the Starcatchers" book series by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry. At first only a supporting character described by her creator as "a common fairy", her animated incarnation was a hit and has since become a widely recognized unofficial mascot of The Walt Disney Company.  In her animated form she leaves a trail of twinkling pixie dust.
In the original story Tinker Bell was described by Barrie as a fairy who mended pots and kettles, like an actual tinker. Her speech consists of the sounds of a tinkling bell, which is understandable only to those familiar with the language of the fairies. She was represented on stage by a darting light "created by a small mirror held in the hand off-stage and reflecting a little circle of light from a powerful lamp" and her voice was "a collar of bells. Disney's Tinker Bell is a Pixie who sprinkles Pixie Dust and she now lives in Pixie Hallow with her other Pixies family and friends.

* The Tinkerbell map: is a discrete-time dynamical system; A dynamical system is a concept in mathematics where a fixed rule describes the time dependence of a point in a geometrical space.

 ๑ Roland
  •  Roland (Frankish: Hruodland) (died 14 August 778) was a Frankish military leader under Charlemagne who became one of the principal figures in the literary cycle as Matter of France. Historically, Roland was military governor of the Breton March, with responsibility for defending the frontier of Francia against the Bretons. His only historical attestation is in Einhard's Vita Karoli Magni, which describes him as Hruodlandus Brittannici limitis praefectus ("Roland, prefect of the borders of Brittany"). Roland became an iconic figure in medieval minstrel culture. Many legends made him a nephew of Charlemagne (whether or not this was true is unknown), and turned his life into an epic tale of the noble Christian killed by Islamic forces, which forms part of the medieval Matter of France. The tale of Roland's death is retold in the eleventh century poem The Song of Roland, where he is equipped with the olifant (a signaling horn) and an unbreakable sword, enchanted by various Christian relics, named Durendal.
  • Childe Rowland is a fairy tale, the most popular version being by Joseph Jacobs in his English Folk and Fairy Tales, published in 1892
  •  English poet Robert Browning composed an epic poem, Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came; the title of which comes from a line in William Shakespeare's play King Lear
  •  American writer Stephen King has written a seven-volume series of epic fantasy novels called The Dark Tower, concerning the thousand-year quest of Roland Deschain, of Eld, based in part on Browning's Childe Roland.
William Tell's Feat: Shooting an apple off one's child's head, also known as apple-shot (from German Apfelschuss) is a feat of marksmanship with a bow or crossbow that occurs as a motif in a number of legends in Germanic folklore.

"Tulips": is a poem by American poet Sylvia Plath about her experiences in a mental hospital. Written in 1961 and is included in the collection Ariel published in 1965.

Enough of my rambling... Here's your episode recap! Enjoy!

The rescue party tries to follow the straight line course of Pan's map, but the magical map shows that Pan's camp/lair is moving and is now behind them.  Hook knows that trick playing Pan is moving it. If Pan's camp keeps moving, how are they going to find Henry? As if she hasn't even been listening, Regina says if they just use magic they can materialize in the camp and grab Henry. Hook feels Pan would have shields against magic and any attempt would result in her death, and more importantly, his. "Which is why we're walking." Hook suggests they way to find it is to use someone "he trusts."  A fairy who still might be on the island; she'd be an inside source- knows all about the camp and can get them in. "She might even have some Pixie Dust left. Perhaps we could fly in."  Not fairy dust, as Pixie Dust is stronger, like nuclear fairy dust. With this clue Emma realizes he's talking about Tinker Bell. "Every kid in the world knows her."
This doesn't sit well with Regina. "Mark my words... this Tinker Bell is not going to save us."

Pan wakes up sleeping Henry and tosses an apple at.   Henry claims to not like apples, "It's a family thing."  Game playing Pan tells him they're not for eating- they're for playing a really fun game. He calls it "Target practice."
Pan dips the arrowhead into a jar of the nasty poison, Dreamshade. He knows of a story of a man who once shot an arrow off his son's head with an arrow, "Let's find out if it's possible."  Henry wonders if you're shooting at the apple, why the poison. Pan claims it to be motivation not to miss.  Pan calls Felix over. Nervous Henry asks if Felix's aim is good, but that doesn't matter, as it is Henry who will fire the arrow toward a much taller Felix. Henry doesn't want to and is egged on by the Lost Boys chanting for him to "shoot."
Pan encourages Henry. "You won't hit him. Trust yourself. Go on. It's exhilarating."
With Felix ready with the apple atop his head, Henry turns and shoots at Pan- who in turn catches the arrow right before it hits his chest and pierces his heart.
"Told you it was exhilarating. Come on. I have something to show you."
Bae rummages through the cupboard in his father house to look for a (way to create a) "portal" to get to Emma; he doesn't need a horse to get to her. He tells that Henry's trapped in Neverland with Peter Pan, who is hands-down the nastiest person Bae ever met.
Mulan notes that Emma in that (magic glass) ball- not Henry.  Bae explains that he was in Neverland "Pan was looking for a boy- specific boy, I, I know he had some picture of him on a scroll he called him the 'truest believer'."  Bae believes that has to be Henry and that's the only reason Emma would be in Neverland. Bae wants Robin Hood and Mulan to help him look. "Lots of things make portals- beans, magic mirrors, ruby slippers, some kinds of ashes."  Bae knocks something over and it alerts Little John and the Merry Men to enter the room- with Robin's 4 year old son, Roland. This causes Bae to have an idea on how to get to Neverland- to Henry.
Robin Hood's son Roland will be bait for Baelfire to summon the Shadow. Bae assures the very concerned father that the Shadow won't touch Roland. Bae has dealt with it before; it's what took him to Neverland as a kid. Both men have suffered loss and value family. Robin Hood reveals that Baelfire's father intervened and saved Robin's pregnant wife. With Robin reluctantly agreeing to let Bae "use" Roland, Robin could consider his debt to Rumple paid.  Very protective Robin gives Bae only one chance in the Roland-Shadow Mission- he gets no second chance.
Bae informs him, "You gotta understand, this is my second chance."

Mulan directs the men with a plan to get everyone in position for the arrival of the Shadow.  Bae admits that although he's going to save his family, he'll have to see about them being back together. I felt the same way about Emma as she did about him, but took too long to tell her. He hopes she'll forgive him; learning that lesson the hard way. He won't make that mistake again. "When you love someone you don't keep it in, you say it."  This strikes a chord with Mulan.

Robin Hood hugs his little man and assures him that even though it may be loud, nothing will hurt him. Roland remembers what he has to say once he's instructed to do so. With everyone in their positions Roland is given the Okay by his father to say it.
Standing facing the large closed window, Roland declares, "I believe." But the Shadow doesn't show.  Bae thinks the boy should say it once more, but Robin says no.  All of a sudden the window flies open and the Shadow flies in, heading toward Roland and grabs his hand. The little man is scooped up by his father through this tug of war, and Mulan uses her sword to separate the Shadow from Roland. The angry Shadow takes off out the window and Bae runs after it, jumping to grab hold of the Shadow mid-flight! Bae is en route to Neverland!

Rumpelstiltskin makes an appearance at the opposite end of Regina's feast table; which includes "roast Swan", as amused Rumple hints he knows means something in her future. Rumple thought Regina was dead/toes up because she didn't show up for her lessons. Feeling a bit persecuted, Regina shares she's not sure about these lessons anymore. "I don't want a future that looks like... like you." After all, she's the Queen, "I'm practically a prisoner. With a husband who's heart is still with his dead wife and his insipid daughter."  She finds it intolerable. She feels trapped and longs for freedom.
Rumple, "Uh, Can't be done.  See this is how it is. You think you're the diner at the feast, tasting the offerings. A little love. A little darkness. What you don't realize is You are the feast. And the darkness has tasted You!"  The darkness likes how she tastes. It doesn't mind the bitter- and now that its started the meal, it's going to finish it. "You can no more fly from your fate, than can that swan. {He points to the swan on the table} See ya tomorrow. Don't be late. Oh! And bring that simmering rage. It's all ya have." He disappears.
Frustrated Regina walks over to the railing at the balcony, when all of a sudden in anger she pushes it, causing it to loosen and she falls.
Regina is halted mid-fall by Tinker Bell's bright glittering green magic. Glowing Tink is giving Regina a second chance. Tink magically elevates Regina back to the balcony.

Tink shares a meal and drinks while listening to Regina spew about how the monster Snow White is indulged and adored. "She sort of ricochets through life telling people's secrets. She had my fiancée killed." The only way Regina can get through it is that Snow and the King (her husband) are gone all the time. She admits it's not a marriage- it's a farce. Regina's alone in that palace. "I feel like the Queen of nothing."
"No wonder you jumped," Tink replies.
Regina corrects her, "I didn't jump. I fell."  But if she had... she toasts to "good reasons."
Tink can help people find what they need. She tells clueless Regina that she needs "Love."  It is possible to find love again. "I've never seen Pixie Dust fail." It will find Regina her perfect match- if she lets it, she'll find her happy ending. Tink encourages doubting Regina, "Well, I'm a fairy. You might wanna try believing in me."

"I'm late," claims Tink. She'll see Regina soon.  Regina watches Tink become tiny and fly away up toward the stars.
Tink flies through the center of a bright colored flower that is surrounded by many extra-large brightly colored tulips.  A green tulip opens and reveals the Blue Fairy. "Good evening, Green," the Blue Fairy greets Tink. Tink/Green calls her "Blue."  Blue reprimands Green for being late and breaking every rule in the book "Curfew, dust discipline. You got big for no reason."  But Green is excited she was helping the Queen Regina in the Enchanted Forest. Blue tells Green who "she is," and that her mother was Cora- who ripped out hearts and her teacher is the Dark One. Green should consider herself lucky she is still alive. Blue insists Regina isn't a woman she can help, as she is surrounded by darkness. To Green, this sounds exactly like someone who could use her help. She asks for some Pixie Dust, but not a chance. Blue warns "You'll fly away from this one, Green."

"My name isn't Green. It's Tinker Bell. And I can't believe you want me to ignore someone who needs help. It's not very fairy-like."  Annoyed Blue will be the judge of what is fairy-like! Until further notice Green is to remain there and continue her training under Blue's direct supervision. Blue flies away and Tink heads back from where she came from.

Tink flies into Regina's open window and asks her "Wanna fly?" Tink feels that helping Regina find her happiness and saving her in turn will save Tink.
Tink uses "stolen" Pixie Dust to ensure the duo takes flight.
Tink leads Regina to a tavern where she points out Regina's happiness is sitting inside with his back to them. "Inside here lies the beginning of your happiness. All the pain in your past will be just that- the past."  There's a guy with the Lion tattoo. Pixie Dust doesn't lie. Tink feels it's Regina's fresh start and a chance at happiness- with no baggage. "You can let go of all of the anger that weighs you down."  Tink encourages her to go in and get him, and then she leaves. Regina happily swings open the door, but sadly isn't brave enough to walk in.

Regina walks through the hot jungle alone; as she's fallen behind the group. She wipes the sweat off her forehead and unknowingly drops her handkerchief when she tried to put it in her pocket.  It is picked up by Tinker Bell; whom seems to have lost her light.

Regina catches up to Emma to again appeal to her for the use of magic- their magic. Emma's not interested because the one thing she learned is that it always comes with a price. But Regina feels sometimes not using it comes with a price too. "I bet you and I combined... are strong enough to overpower Pan."  Emma would rather see the original plan of finding Tinker Bell through.  Annoyed Regina asks "And you think it's the best plan because your boyfriend came up with it?"
"My boyfriend? Hook?"
Mary Margaret reminds Regina that Emma just lost Neal. Regina apologizes, "I'm just worried about Henry."
Hook asks poisoned David if he's going to tell her; as he saw what happened to him.  David shows Hook that the poison is spreading even though the arrow barely nicked him.  Hook is sorry because he knows David has only days- weeks at most. "You won't see summer. It's really a bad break. You might want to tell her."  David thinks perhaps he doesn't have to because he hopes Tinker Bell and her Pixie Dust can help. Hook believes in her power and the dust.

Regina shares with Emma that she has a complicated history with Tinker Bell, and if Tink sees Regina "she won't help."  Regina staying out of her sight will help them find a way in with Tink on Operation Henry. That's what Regina's been calling it in her head, because that's what he'd call it; only with a better name.

Tink finally catches up with Regina who's all alone in the dark jungle. Tink overhead everything she told Emma. Regina notes that Tink looks terrible.
"You think you're so smart. But you're all gonna fail." Tink blows pink-ish sparkly dust into Regina's face and this causes her to fall asleep.  By the way- it's not magic... maybe poppies.
The search party arrives at Tink's tree house and look around for Pixie Dust, but its not there. Emma finds the bare dwelling reminds her of someplace- "Where I used to live, that's it."  Mary Margaret notes that just because it's just a place to sleep.  She also shares with her daughter that she too had a place like that once; a tree stump- when she was running from the Queen. She claims to understand "this Tinker Bell." The real question is why does she have a ladder when fairies have wings? David finds Regina's handkerchief and they realize Tink was tracking them- watching them.  With that Hook states "We're in the wrong place."

"About time you woke up," Tink says to groggy tied up Regina.  Tink knows why Regina is there. "You're trying to find your son."  There's no way Tink will help her after the way Regina burned her after Tink interfered in her life. Regina knows that Tink doesn't have magic- but she does. Regina magically frees herself but is immediately frozen by Tink holding a Dreamshade arrow at Regina's neck.
Regina wonders "How the hell did you get like this?" Tink's reply is simple, "I met you."
Thinking Tink wants to kill her Regina makes it easier and rips out her own heart, counting on Tink to crush it. "Show me who you are... Tinker Bell."

We saw that back in the Enchanted Forest Tink flew into Regina's room to find out how her meeting the guy with the Lion tattoo went. She notes Regina isn't glowing with love- she should be glowing!
"Because it didn't work. The Pixie Dust, it was wrong."  Regina lies, saying she went in and met him and he was awful.  Tink asks if she's sure she went to the right man. Regina claims the problem is that Tink is a terrible fairy.  Tink realizes Regina didn't go in because she's afraid.
Regina claims she's not afraid of anything, and can't believe she let Tink distract her. Tink assures her she needs love.  But heartbroken Regina had love, and now he's dead, and she's suffered. Nothing is going to change that.
"What about me?" asks Tink. She stole for Regina! Again, friendless Regina claims Tink is a terrible fairy. "Fly away, Moth. Don't let the doors catch your wings on the way out."

Tink is stopped by the Blue Fairy, who knows she stole the dust.  Tink misunderstands what being a good fairy is. She should have been a good fairy by listening to her instead of following her instincts. The Blue Fairy says that this can't be forgiven. Tink feels everyone deserves a second chance, as that's what they always tell people.  But this was Tinker Bell's second chance. Crying, Tink pleads for another chance to regain her trust. Unfortunately this won't be, as the Blue Fairy no longer believes in Tinker Bell. Tink is stripped of her wings and falls to the ground.
This cost Tinker Bell her wings.

With Regina handing over her heart, upset Tink asks her why she lied. Tink "... That spell worked! And you never went in!"  Why couldn't Regina just go through the door and meet her soul mate?!  Regina admits Tink is right; that being happy would be a terrible fate. She also admits not going in because she was afraid and feeling that without the anger that was weighing her down she would float away. "That anger was all I had. What would I be without it?"
"Happy," claims Tinker Bell.
Regina disagrees, "Weak."
But what did all that "strength" get Regina when here is Tink holding her heart in her hand and not hearing one reason not to squeeze her heart into ash. Regina enlightens Tink to the fact that Tink is making the same wrong choice as Regina did back then. "I picked revenge over hope... and you're holding the result- a small, hard, dark heart. If you make the same choice I did... then what you're looking at is your own future."  Either kill Regina or "...act like the fairy you are."  Regina wants her to prove her wrong- that Tink isn't a terrible fairy. "Pick hope over anger. Choose love and help me get my son back."  With Regina living with Henry, she feels as if she finally got something right. She wonders if Tink wants the same thing.
Tink, still holding Regina's heart, thinks "It's too late for me." Tink won't kill Regina, but she won't help her either. "Besides, it's probably too late. He's been with him too long." Tink hands Regina back her heart.
Look at the fun they're having. "The thing of this place, Henry, is that no one ever tells you 'no'. You can do whatever you want."
Concerned Henry wonders "They never hurt themselves?" to which Pan admits "All of the time. At one point I had four boys with missing fingers. Cost of the game. They didn't mind."  Henry feels "I don't belong here."  Pan disagrees, as they've been waiting for him for a very long time- long before he was even born. But Henry doesn't believe that.  Pan feels he should. "This place runs on imagination. On belief. But . Magic is dying and you, Henry, need to save it."your world stopped believing
Henry states, "In my world, you mean."  Pan means "In every world. You need to bring it back. That's your destiny.  To return the magic- To be the savior."  Henry thinks his mom Emma is the savior. Pan fluffs it off as "Yeah, she broke some curse, yeah..."  That's right, Pan knows more than shocked Henry thinks. Pan asks what if breaking the curse wasn't the thing that made her the savior, "What if having you was? Think about it... You're descended from the greatest of Light- and of Dark. What, do you think its a coincidence that the spawn of the Dark One met your mother? You were created for a reason. And I can help you find it." Pan believes Henry is the one who is supposed to save magic. He shows Henry a small rolled up parchment; he's had it for a very long time- long before Henry was even thought of.  This is why he's so sure Henry's the hero that magic has been waiting for. But Henry purposely drops the parchment because he doesn't believe Pan. Henry  reminds Pan of Henry's father.

After a while, Henry picks up the scroll and sees the drawing of him.  All of a sudden Henry hears a Whoosh.

Robin Hood offers skilled Mulan a job with his Merry Men; she'd be the first woman. Mulan is honored, but there's someone she needs to talk to before it's too late.
Robin Hood- "A loved one."
Mulan replies, "We shall see."
Aurora is in her garden watering the plants when Mulan arrives gathering her courage and bursting with news. Aurora is glad she is back. Mulan isn't there to see Philip, she excitedly wants to talk to Aurora. Aurora jumps in with her own exciting news that she and Philip are expecting a baby- a dream come true. This causes Mulan to keep the dialogue she had planned to share with Aurora to herself, and instead mentions she's leaving them and joining Robin Hood's band. Mulan ends up walking away with tears rolling down her face- just like Philip walked away from Aurora in Broken.
A pissed off mother and the rest of her #SaveHenry search party run into Tink and Regina. Regina tells the armed gang to "stand down" as tough Tink won't hurt them.
"But is she going to help us?" Hook wonders. It's true that Hook and Lady Bell already know each other. Tink doesn't have any magic, no Pixie Dust, and not even her wings, therefore won't be able to help them.
Tink shares "I guess people just stopped believing in me." And even if she wanted to help, "He's too powerful." She knows where Pan is and can get them inside his compound. To get Tink to help, Mary Margaret reveals "Because I believe in you."  They offer Tink a chance to go home with them once they've saved Henry; it seems that's what Tink wants... a home.  Tink agrees and lets them know that Pan trusts her and will let her in, and just maybe, she'll leave a way open for them. "But you've only got one shot. So you better have a good plan." They'll return to camp to figure it out.

David is worried about Henry. He asks his wife how she knew that offering Tink a home would work. She knew because when she was a bandit living alone, that's all she ever wanted. "The thing is I never found it 'til you came along. Even now when I'm with you... I mean, that's all I need."  She asks him if he's okay. David just tells her "I love you."  Hurrying him, Mary Margaret says "Come on. The last thing we need is to get lost in here."
The Whoosh Henry heard when looking at the photo is the Shadow flying and dropping Baelfire onto Neverland.
Baelfire is instantly greeted by Felix who welcomes him home. "Pan will be so happy to see you."

With his hook, Hook pokes holes in coconuts so they have something to drink.
Regina sits looking at her ring when Tink goes over to ask her if she ever went back to find the man with the Lion tattoo.  Regina admits she didn't.
Tink finds that unreal. "Do you know how selfish that is?" Enlightening Regina about how it is selfish, "You didn't just ruin your life... you ruined his."

Mulan meets up with Robin and his Merry Men while they sit around their campfire. Robin shakes Mulan's hand, welcoming her. We see Robin Hood has a Lion tattoo on his right forearm.

  1. What a great episode!
    I find it interesting that in an episode filled with second chances, last chances, that Tink tells them she will help them open up a way into Pans camp, but they will only have ONE chance to get in.
    It was sad that Regina didn't jump at the chance of meeting her soul mate. I have felt like that before, like I didn't deserve to be happy. I think with her, she is so used to being alone and hated, that she was really afraid of true happiness, of letting go and stepping out of her comfort zone so to speak.
    I am curious how de-winged Tink got to the island, though?
    It's funny, I expected the Blue fairy to be in a blue tulip and Tink to be in a green one! lol
    Plus, I felt so so bad for Mulan! Maybe the connection with the different colored flowers and Mulan are connected. You don't have to be with the flower everyone expects you to be with ;)
