    Personally, I'm not a huge fan...:S I don't like Mythology, and I don't think it fits as well into the show...I can think of a way I wouldn't mind it, but it doesn't seem to be the route they have taken thus far haha. Ah well. W/e. Yeah. :P Not a huge fan of the idea, but I'm open to seeing how it plays out. IDK >_< Yeah, something like that. :P What do you think?

    • Considering that the box itself appears, Pandora herself will be described at least to some extent - possibly showing a flashback of either a mythological Greek world or the Enchanted Forest long before many of its inhabitants existed (with the exception of Rumplestiltskin, possibly, because he has it in his possession. Although, he may have just acquired it in a deal, so who knows?) 

      If Pandora and King Midas exist, and there was mention of a Pegasus in "Good Form" as well as the Siren in Lake Nostros, obviously other Greek characters must exist (like the gods, Odysseus, Penelope, Telemachus, Circe, etc.) Perhaps Scylla and Charybdis will be later threats, and considering as there is already a Netherworld, why not an Underworld?

    • I know it sounds good! I'm exited, and I don't know what they are gonna do with this box. It has been revealed that Peter Pan is coming to Storybrooke, so I don't know how they are going to use the box. Maybe capture him in it and he escapes, like someone in Storybrooke opens it up? Idk what they are gonna do?

    • I like the idea of including more of the Greek (Roman) mytheology. If Pandora appears I hope she is just a young child instead of an adult woman. Kinda like in GoW, although I haven't played the game. Pandora being a kid/teen would appeal more to me (if she even appears that is). Plus it would be a nice way of showing another world.

    • If Rumple and Regina are using Pandora's box I will be questioning their sanity, because their is nothing good can come from its usage.

    • I love it! I'm a huge fan of mythology (greek myths, specially). And although I love it beeing adapted this way, I would not like at all if the Greek Gods appear. They are always too involved in every myth, and if they existed in the EF (at least the way I see it), I think that they should've been involved in quite everything, and we know that -apparently- they haven't (for example the Dark Curse).

      Well I am not sure because I have a theory that Hart Archer from Good morning storybrooke is Greek god Eros.

      I also don't want to see Gods involved in the story, at least not be major in the plot. But I think that they also live in an other world, Mount Olympus for example (which also has the Underworld etc connected to it).

      But seeing that Pandora's Box appears I wouldn't mind seeing a backstory of Rumple making a deal with Hephaestus and Pandora over Pandora's Box.

    • As early as the First Season, I can recall characters using terms such as, "by the gods!" and language of that effect. I even remember in "Red Handed" that Granny said she would "stay with the trolls in the afterlife", possibly implying the Underworld.

      As for Pandora being a little girl, I whole-heartedly agree. I think it would make more sense, as well, as being a child would only urge Pandora further in desiring to open the box. It should be interesting to see OUAT's twist on the myth, and whether or not any of the gods themselves will appear. After all, Hercules became a beloved Disney hero just like any of the other princes, so it would be interesting to see a bit of his backstory perhaps.

      In the film , I remember that upon Hercules' birth, Zues constructed Pegasus for him as a loyal guardian and pet. In OUAT, Hook mentions that the Pegasus has been dead for many, many years, so perhaps all of the gods (Ursula included) are nothing more than fairy tales to.....well, fairy tale characters! I think that would be a fun twist. However, I also know that in the original Greek mythology, Pegasus was not crafted for Hercules, so maybe the writers will follow this regiment.

    • That and Ursula is suppose to be a goddess.  If Once Upon a Time decides to add King Triton than I can see him being a god. The most odvious reason is there is a Greek God named Triton. It would make sense of Once to make that connection.

      At the same time I heard there is a  deleted scene  where it is reveal that Triton and Ursula are brother and sister. If Ursula is a goddess, than there  a good chance that Triton is a god.

    • Pandora's Box.... now, I am interested.

      I love mythology, and am curious to see how OUaT spins this. In the original myth, Pandora brought Evil into the world. The only thing left in the box, before she closed it, was Hope. Which, on OUaT, is one of the most powerful magic.

      King Midas, the Siren, and Pegasus have all been seen or referenced. Even, Ursula was turned into a sea-goddess. So, Pandora's Box is a nice addition.

      I was close to thinking the same thing about Hart Archer. I was thinking Cupid.

      Well Cupid/ Eros are the same person. Cupid is the name of his Latin form, and Eros is the name of the greek form.  Here a link to more info on him.

    • I'm a huge Greek mythology fan, and I'm so excited to how they're going develop Pandora's Box into the plot, as well as how it's going to give Peter a "fate worse than death".

    • I think no mater if we like it or not, it does make sense to have nods to Greek Mythology.  Mostly I feel this way b/c of the Disney movie Hercules existing.  It's fair game.

      Thinking it over...I feel accepting.  I accept that they've brought in Pandora's Box and dont' really have a problem with it.  I'm actually quite interested to see how it will be used next week.

    • So I thought of this last night....

      Rumple wants to give Peter Pan a fate worse than death, right? In Nasty Habits, EF Rumple told Bae that Peter left him for Neverland, "betraying him". Peter has been living on Neverland for centuries. It's the reason for his eternal youth, and he wants Henry to use his belief to restore Neverland's magic. It seems, and is very plausible, that Peter loves Neverland very, very much.

      So what if Rumple uses Pandora's Box to destroy Neverland? Destroy the island where Peter has lived for so long, the place Peter calls home, where he is "in tune with every grain of sand" (as he told Henry in 301). In the original, the island caters to Peter's will -- essentially, the island seems to love Peter, however impossible that seems. Peter has a strong connection to Neverland, no doubt about that. 

      If Rumple destroys Neverland, that would not only cause Peter to continue aging, but it would most likely devastate Peter. It would force him to grow up, and to find a new home. Neverland is where Peter holds all the cards. If it was gone, so would Peter's advantage. 

      Episode 310 is called The New Neverland; Many people have been speculating that the new Neverland is Storybrooke. If Rumple destroyed Neverland, Peter might try to retain the island's power and then bring it to Storybrooke.

      It's just something I thought of when I was drifting to sleep last night. Something to chew on.

    • After the sneak peek, I thought that the Regina's: "you don't want to scape your prison?" refers Pandora's box... I mean, Rumple has foresyght, so he knows that he will be traped in the box... (sorry for bad English)

    • Based on how Medusa is going to appear on Once Upon a Time Episode: The New Neverland. He might see Heaven and Hell.
