Woohoo! Badass Snow White is back, smashing birds, talking smack to the dwarves, and intent on killing the Evil Queen!
Little Red Riding Hood…The Weaponized Werewolf!
For some reason it was that moment that I realized that dudes have little to do with the storylines on this show. Even in their own love stories, they mostly exist to develop the female character. We knew all about Cinderella, but her prince was a prop. We knew all about Red, but her lover was a prop. Grumpy had his own episode, but he’s really only there for Snow White. And so on and so on.
As for Charming, I can’t help but love that he has to be rescued constantly. And Rumpy? We all know how I feel about him…
It’s a nice reversal.
In Storybrooke, Mary Margaret has been booked for the murder of Kathryn.
Sure, the sheriff position in Storybrooke is an elected position, but shouldn’t there be an orientation to the law before you get to start booking people? Maybe the sheriff should at least sign off on watching a couple seasons of Law & Order?
OK, so your fingerprints are on a box that has a heart in it. We’re guessing it’s a human heart (but don’t really know without analysis). There’s a woman missing. Is that enough to arrest Mary Margaret for the murder of Kathryn? Seems more like a “suspect”/ “don’t leave town” kind of thing.
Of course, everything I think I know is entirely based on The Wire and Barney Miller. So, it’s probably wrong.
David, ever the stalwart supporter of the woman he loves, immediately suspects that it’s all true! That guy is…I can’t even. I almost feel bad hating him because he’s not a horrible person. He’s not mean or violent. He’s just stupid.
Meanwhile, in Fairytale Land, Snow White, having cut her love for Charming out via Rumpy potion, has become an insufferable bitch (in other words, someone I’d like to hang out with). I loved seeing her try to kill the lovely blue bird and lashing out at the dwarves.
This being Once Upon A Time, in the end, true love prevails in the fairy-verse. This time, I wasn’t annoyed by it. Mostly because Charming got dragged off in a rolling cage, thwarting their happiness again.
I love a good, thwarted happy ending.
