Prince Charming: “I told you, it’s James.”
Snow White: “Nah, still like Charming better .”
“Snow Falls” is the newest episode of Once Upon a Time. If you don’t remember what happened last week, click here. Once Upon a Time airs Sunday nights at 7 on ABC (KTRK).
Tonight’s episode was all about Snow White and Prince Charming. The fairytale land parts of the episode centered on their first meeting. While there were still troubles with transitioning in and out of fairytale land, the flashbacks served a great purpose. Their meeting is adorable, and it is nice that the writers took their story in a different direction. Snow White is a thief who steals from Prince Charming and his annoying fiancé, which leads Charming to hunt her down, and from there, fun ensues. In addition to the adventure filled back story, the writers hint at trouble between Snow and the Queen. Snow ruined her life, but other than that, the details are a bit foggy as to what actually happened. These little tidbits are very enticing, and hopefully the writers don’t go too long without explaining it.
Back in Storybrooke, Henry is convinced that if Mary reads to John Doe (aka Charming), he will wake up out of his coma. This is the next step in Henry’s plan, and it goes quite well. The fact that a coma patient can stumble out of a hospital unnoticed is a little unnerving, but hey, it is a small town. What is curious about all of this is that John Doe, or David apparently, immediately goes to the forest. That means that there is an inkling of remembrance, but it all just disappears. There was an attempt to rationalize this to Henry which was nice, but not all together satisfying, but perhaps that was the point.
What is mind blowing is the extent to which Regina, the mayor is connected to the entire town. She seems to have a bunch of people working for her like the sheriff, the shrink, and the doctor. Now we know that the shrink was not one of the Evil Queen’s lackeys, but as for the other two, we still don’t really know who they are in fairy tale land. Unless the doctor was the evil knight who found Snow, it was unsure whether that was him or not. There was time spent on his face, so maybe it was supposed to set off a light bulb, but it didn’t. The writers need to spend a little more time on the curse and what happened when they were all initially transferred into Storybrooke. Have things always been this way or was it slightly different at the beginning? Regina seems too well connected for there not to be ground work involved. What do you think?
Share your thoughts on the episode in a comment below! Do you think David (John Doe) is really married to that girl or did Regina just tell someone to say that she was his wife? Anyone else laugh at the fact that the troll bridge was a toll bridge in Storybrooke? Clever, clever writers.
