Worth a read. Interesting bits below.
Not to mention the fact that Crane created a monster out of the Horseman’s head all to get her back. A monster who, lest we forget, is now on the loose doing God knows what. “I think it went really wrong. It was a bad idea,” Mison says of raising the Kindred. “She f—ked it up, Katrina did, by not coming.”
"There have been times when we’ve been shooting when I say, ‘Have we reached the point now where he’s just being a dick? Being a contrary dick?’ Because he is," Mison says. “He’s moody and he’s headstrong and will do his own thing blindly. I wouldn’t like him … and it’s nice to have a character say, ‘He was my best mate and he stole my fiancée.’ Which is what happened. It’s nice to see a negative side of him.”
It feels like just yesterday Jenny was busting out of lock-up, and now the other Mills sister is right back where she started: behind bars. “It’s shitty,” Greenwood tells TVGuide.com, “but she knows it’s the best thing for the cause. She’s a fighter. She’s a warrior. She’ll do what she has to do. But she’s angry and she wanted Abbie to know that she was angry.”
But just because Jenny and Abbie love each other, doesn’t mean it’s easy for Jenny to accept her designation as second string within the team. Whether it’s who gets to decide whether or not to raise the Kindred or who’s disposable enough to go to jail, it’s clear that as talented and smart Jenny is, her voice will never count as much as Abbie or Ichabod’s. “What would one think if their sibling was the chosen one and they were not? And after all these years and all she’s done, she’s kind of just not the one,” Greenwood says. “And I think she respects her sister and she wants to help her sister on this journey and be part of the team. But I would imagine, I know, she does feel a little bit of resentment and a little wonder over why it wasn’t her.”
"He made a choice to confess to murders that he did not commit. He made a choice to reveal that a demon was responsible, knowing that they would not believe that. He made a choice to sign that contract and not do what lots of people don’t do when they read contracts, because we all agreed to that f—king iTunes contract and we never f—king read it," Jones explains. "My point is, all of those are choices. They are decisions that we make that we often take for granted. He is about to be faced with the repercussion of those choices. But he’s still making choices that put him this position."
While Irving signing his soul over to Henry is bad news for our heroes, Jones was thrilled when he found out what the producers had planned. “I don’t even know what the f—k I’ve done,” Jones says. ”I really love that wrinkle because I think it underscores to me what Irving is really about. Which is he’s a disciple and his faith has been questioned and … to be questioned with your faith under these circumstances is just destructive on so many levels.”
God bless these actors and the grasp they have of their characters.
you know what i want for Katrina and by extension the show’s racialized gender politics? i want dark!Katrina who joins forces with Headless. I want her questioning everything the narrative has thus far told us about her purity, her innate goodness and innocence; I want her concluding that the mould of perfect, long-suffering wife actually blocks the full expression of her powers. I want her to start manipulating Headless and then realize she enjoys it. I want her to become a dark puppet-master stringing along the Horseman of Death while imagining a new world for herself in the Apocalypse. And, I want her to be a true and worthy nemesis for Abbie, not because they share a fraught connection to the same (boring) white dude, but because of their competing, dizzyingly powerful visions for the future of humanity. this is the only way to break Katrina out of the Frail Magnolia trope of white womanhood she currently occupies, and to redeem the show’s larger narrative of womanhood and race at large. It’s great to have Black women as leads in a supernatural drama, but progress stops at representation if those women then spend the entire story fighting tooth and nail to survive in a world that denies their vulnerability and tenderness at every turn, while people are moving heaven and earth to rescue a white woman who, thus far, has no tangible value to the forces of good. right now, Katrina’s glaring helplessness and over-the-top white femininity undermines what could otherwise be a great cast of compelling women with powerful agendas. because personally? the fragile white woman who’s valued simply for existing is, well, boring. and i’ve been bored a long time,
more void!stiles! might colour it someday but i’m keeping it b&w for now \m/
Classic Hollywood Bloopers
And the greatest Hollywood blooper of all time:
These are WONDERFUL

I feel so dumb. It’s been 3 seasons and I just noticed this.
In addition to the color theory reasons, GoT recently explained the in-character reason why Dany wears blue all the time. Source: Costume Designer Michele Clapton, via the S3 Blu-Ray special features.
"Blue was the color of royalty in Khal Drogo’s khalasar. It was the color of the expensive dye which they adorned themselves with, more so on special occasions such as Drogo’s wedding. […] Thus, while in Season 3 Daenerys no longer wears a Dothraki-style "cut" to her outfit, she switched to blue colors as a symbol of her authority as a Khaleesi and in memory of Drogo."
*takes gulp of vodka straight from the bottle* my day was fine
"Henry brought me to Storybrooke to bring back the happy endings. My job’s not done until I do that for everyone… Including you."
I think this entire season of OUAT I’m going to swing wildly between being pissed off at the way they chose to COPY Frozen, and thrilled at everything else.
