January talking meme
, Jan 5. From shadowkat67
: Connor (angel the series) arc vs. Henry (ouat) arc.
My initial reaction to this topic was, "What do these characters have in common besides being the brats of their respective story universes? Not much!" But this turns out to be untrue.
As characters, both Connor and Henry are the children of the primary protagonist/hero of their respective shows (you can disagree with me that Emma is the primary protagonist/hero of OUAT, but there is a strong case to be made for this). Both were raised by their parent's enemies. And both are presented as relatively passive characters who are manipulated and that things happen to
rather than characters who make choices and act on them.
Let's look at their respective arcs. Warning: as astrogirl2
would say, the deer got a bit teal here. Spoilers for all five seasons of Angel, and up to episode 3.11 of OUAT.( Connor )( Henry )
