Other Side of the Mirror # 11 – A Monster in the Shape of a Woman, a Recap of The Doctor

By  | 

In this episode of the podcast, we discuss The Doctor, episode 5 of the second season of Once Upon a Time. Topics include the gothic backstory of Mary Shelley, complete with actual heart; feminist theories from Frankenstein and how they are reflected in Once; and the little Easter eggs designed to convince viewers that perhaps Dr. Whale was the Wizard of Oz. Bri suggests another reading of Daniel’s advice to Regina to “love again,” while Alex thinks Daniel looks like David Bowie. Wait Mr. Gold is playing 4 characters now? And Mulan/Emma/Snow/Hook are off to climb the beanstalk. At 9:00 we end our discussion of Frankenstein, the novel. and begin talking completely about Once.
