    The Doctor

    Post by eclectic1




    Official ABC Recap & Pre Air info:


    With her mother, Cora, banished to another land and the spell book now in her hands (see Episode 202 – “We Are Both”), Regina has begun studying magic under Rumplestiltskin. The latest lesson is taking out a victim’s heart so that you can control their will. But as Rumplestiltskin instructs Regina to tear out a horse’s heart and crush it, she can’t bring herself to do it. She can’t help but remember how her mother tore out her lover, Daniel’s, heart and killed him in the same way. She can’t bear to use magic for evil the way her mother did. Rumplestiltskin feels like his time is being wasted, but Regina is eager to continue her training so that she can bring Daniel back from the dead. When she begs Rumple for more lessons, she crosses paths with Jefferson, a portal jumper who might know someone who can do exactly what she’s looking for.

    Word has begun to spread around town that the other worlds weren’t actually destroyed by The Dark Curse. Someone who’s particularly interested is Dr. Whale, who bursts into Regina’s therapy session with Dr. Hopper and demands she send him back. She says she couldn’t even if she wanted to, but clearly that’s not good enough for the doctor. After therapy, Regina thinks she sees none other than her beloved Daniel staring at her on a street corner. Dazed, she looks for Dr. Whale in the hospital and finds him there, his arm torn off, moaning about unleashing a monster. Did he really bring Daniel back from the dead in Storybrooke?

    In Fairy Tale Land, Jefferson takes Regina to meet a man from another land, a doctor, who we recognize as Dr. Whale. He claims to be able to revive the dead, but he needs an enchanted heart, like one plucked from a person’s chest the way Rumplestiltskin showed Regina how to do, to complete his operation. Regina takes the doctor and Jefferson to her mother’s vault which is full of throbbing, enchanted hearts stolen from poor souls all over the land. They choose one and the doctor sets to work. Regina had used a spell to preserve Daniel’s body and thing appear to be going well. Lightning strikes the doctor’s tent, but he soon emerges, sadly admitting that he failed. Regina, heartbroken, returns to Rumplestiltskin and eagerly plucks the heart from another student’s chest, crushing it. She’s ready for her next lesson.

    Sometime later, we see Rumplestiltskin meeting with the doctor and Jefferson to conclude their business. The whole thing was a ruse to get Regina beyond her heartbreak so that she could continue her training. The doctor leaves for his world with an enchanted heart as payment, convinced his science is superior to magic and that his process for reviving the dead will indeed work to bring his brother back to life.

    Regina discovers that Dr. Whale had stolen a heart from her own vault and used it to bring Daniel back to life, but Daniel seems to be insane and incredibly strong. Being a stable boy, he goes to the Storybrooke stables where Henry is meeting his new horse. David and Regina race there to find the boy being attacked. David wants to put Daniel down again, but Regina insists that her once-dead fiancé will listen to her. At first he tries to strangle her, but slowly the real Daniel emerges, only to confess that he is in terrible pain and to beg that Regina let him go. Tearfully, she does, using magic to disintegrate him. For the second time, she has lost the love of her life.

    In present day Fairy Tale Land, Emma, Mary Margaret, Mulan and Aurora return to the island encampment to find that it’s been attacked by Cora. They find a lone survivor, none other than Captain Killian Jones aka Hook. Immediately Emma is suspicious and ties him to a tree. She whistles to summon some ogres and suggest he tell the truth if he wants to live. He is left with no choice but to reveal the ruse, that Cora wanted him to get close to them so he could find out more about Storybrooke. He offers to help them get there the same way he planned to help Cora, so long as he gets revenge on Rumplestiltskin. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of objections from any of the four Princesses.

    Then we flash not to Fairy Tale Land, but to another world, where the doctor and his assistant work in a gloomy castle laboratory. As the doctor places the enchanted heart into the body on the table before him, lightning strikes and the creature’s stitched-together hand begins to move. It’s alive! And we realize this is Dr. Victor Frankenstein who will somehow be transported to Storybrooke as Dr. Whale! And in Storybrooke, Dr. Whale drags his severed arm to Mr. Gold’s pawnshop for help. The price, this time, is relatively cheap. Rumplestiltskin merely asks that he admit he needs magic. When the doctor does, his arm magically grows back. It seems the rivalry between science and magic isn’t quite done yet.

    The official ABC secrets page for this episode can be found here:
    The Doctor Secrets Page

    Portal jumpers, am I right? Nothing but trouble, those guys. Jefferson shows up at Rumplestiltskin's workshop with a crystal ball and gives him some information about magic slippers that can transport someone between magical and non-magical worlds. Both of those items can be found in L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. That's the second Oz reference this season. Think we'll get to visit sometime soon?

    Keeping it literary, when Emma is interrogating Captain Hook, she says "So much for fortune favoring the brave,". That's a reference to the Latin “AVDENTES FORTVNA IVVAT”, allegedly the last word of Pliny the Elder as he left the docks at Pompeii to rescue people from the eruption of Vesuvius in 79, quoted in Virgil’s Aeneid.

    That or she wanted it to be obvious it was her work since they thought it was an ogre attack at first...maybe in the hopes they would trust Hook more readily...

    My gut is it was more of a pure F U by Cora.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but can't the heart-ripper decide whether to do it cleanly or in a messy way? I think that's what Rumple explained to Regina when he was training her. At least that's my explanation of it.

    Possibly...that would make sense!

    As for Whale being the wiz as well...i think its possible but don't think so. They said the slippers had already been taken to a different land...Oz is colorful...where ever Frank is from its black & white...so I thought perhaps that maybe he makes his world colorful (as it might really be Oz) through science...but the timing is off since by the time the slippers leave Oz, that world is colorful...so i think it is just a reference...

    I'm inclined to agree.

    I just noticed something:

    When Regina walks into Whale's clinic there's a clock she passes. The time? 4:20.

    Then it goes to Jeff and Reg going to meet Frank -

    Regina: "Where is he this wizard....?"

    Jeff: "Indeed and off we shall go to meet him."

    Sound familiar? We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz..."


    Do you think they'll tie it all in and make Whale Oz? Oz did have interest in science. Or do you think they were just referencing the Oz story again like with the slippers?

    I'm thinking it works like the OZ ball (sees the present) since I believe the slippers were an OZ reference.

    Slippers. And it was a ball. Smile

    haha...i figured the ball part from reading all the writeups in eclectics spoilers! Looked kind of small from what I remember of the 'crystal ball'...haha...maybe I will actually catch it this year (its been many years since i have seen it)...doesn't Oz usually air in November?

    Also I can't remember if the crystal ball showed the future or if it was more like Regina's mirror...will show you the present...

    P.S. The Mohawk dude is the Gingerbread Man. The hair got bitten off.
    (Hey listen, they made me doubt with their little "6 in 10k" lie but I figured that out and returned to my guess). I can make fun of myself for that little gaffe, no worries!

    obsessed...I was on board with Dr Frankenstein when I saw that tent shot in the one promo that came out. To, TOO eerie !!!!! Cool Shocked

    Now, I'm in the process of taking screenshots of this new promo and...the more I look at them...the more I'm convinced, Daniel turns out to BE a monster in the end. Maybe, Whale wanted it that way to get back at Regina for the curse...but, irregardless of whether or not Regina was the one who initiated bringing Daniel back to life or not...in the end, Daniel is NOT the same Daniel she remembers!!! Shocked So Sad Cool
