You know, I hadn’t thought of that before.  It’s an interesting theory that Milah’s abuse would have at some point become physical.
Though that leaves her 100% responsible for Bae which is scary, and seems like it would lead to a Rumple 2.0 situation with Bae being abandoned even younger.
I don’t think Hook’s to blame for Milah leaving.  That was her choice.  But he is responsible for lying to Bae, and selling out Bae to the Lost Boys, and lying now about his relationship with Bae as a boy.

He also helped Milah’s deception that she’s been forcefully taken and made sure Rumple thought he was to blame, his lameness and weakness, for Milah being gang-raped and probably killed. So, you know, fuck him.

Oh, I totally agree.  But Milah was destructive all on her own, and in that way Hook was just her excuse or method of leaving.  She made the choice to leave, and to leave the way she did.

Anonymous asked: Please don't take offense, but I REALLY REALLY hope the Snow Queen isn't Emma's foster mother. I'm sick and tired of all character connections being based around the stupid Charmplemills family tree. And I always liked the idea that Emma had completely normal foster parents to contrast with her ftl ones. The notion that she somehow ended up with a magical stepmom anyway because FAAAAATE! would just be eyeroll-worthy imo.

Lol! I am not offended at all, haha! I have no other explanations as to how the Snow Queen knows Emma, and given the show’s tendency to make EVERYONE related (which is super annoying), I thought it was a reasonable assumption that the Snow Queen was a foster mom. I hope the show does something far more creative and interesting though.

Actually there are a few other possibilities: She worked in one of the group homes. Was a case worker who made the arrangements for the foster families. She could have been one of Emma’s teachers. I would say that she might have actually worked in the detention center and was the one who arranged for Henry to end up in Maine and had some way to make Emma forget having met her, but I think that’s the least likely option.

Anonymous asked: Guys before this "Hook's a monster for hurting poor Rumple" attitude gets out of hand lets just remember that Gold caused all his own problems. Can we not pitch Hook against either Gold or Regina because it never works and we always end up going off tangent

justkillianthings:

Yes, I know that Gold has caused his own problems, and I am not saying that Hook’s a monster for hurting “poor Rumple”. I am saying that Hook cannot purport to have changed, then go around threatening someone. Especially someone who, for all his own atrocities, just went through a tremendous ordeal and had had his agency stripped from him. Hook tried to force Rumple into carrying out his bidding under duress. Once again, that is a form of stripping Rumple of his agency.

White man in Dallas shoots 8-year-old black boy in the face as he plays ‘tag’

canadad:

An 8-year-old African-American boy in Texas is struggling to recover after being shot in the face by a 46-year-old white man, but authorities have not been able to determine a motive.

Dallas police said that Donald Maiden Jr., who had just celebrated his 8th birthday on Sunday, was playing tag outside his apartment complex on Tuesday. According to his grandmother, Maiden ran inside to get some toys and was shot as came back outside.

Witnesses told police that 46-year-old Brian Cloninger had been seen waiving a handgun at people prior to the shooting, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Police reports said that Cloninger was seen standing beside his pickup truck as the boy was bleeding, and a witness asked him if he shot the boy.

“Yes I shot that kid,” Cloninger reportedly said.

Maiden’s mother, Latamarin Locklin, recalled the aftermath of the shooting to KTVT on Thursday.

“When he ran in I just screamed,” she said. “His mouth was just hanging off and it was just a big hole… I just threw him on the couch and laid him in my arms and put pressure on his mouth with the towel.”

Locklin couldn’t understand why anyone would shoot her child “out of the blue.”

Maiden was in critical but stable condition as of Thursday. He still needed a breathing tube and had a plate in his jaw. He he could wink and nod to communicate, but could not talk. The boy was expected to have more surgeries after swelling from the most-recent surgeries goes down.

Cloninger was charged with injury to a child, and was being held $2.2 million dollar bond.

Take notes “charged with injury to a child” rather than attempted murder.

Why can’t “I’m a racist worthless turd” count as a motive
