I think they're adding wayyy too many characters this season, Mulan, Lancelot, and Dr. Frankenstein?? Those aren't really fairy tale characters in my book.
I think they had to do the whole Red episode because they needed to show that the King was out to get Charming. But I really do like Red, so I was okay with that.
I'm really excited about the dream connection though, I think that was a good twist.
