  •   I feel like a broken record, but once again ANOTHER brilliant episode! Sebastian Stan was the perfect Mad Hatter, wasn’t he? LOVED! So we begin where we left off last week, with Mary on the lam after escaping her cell. Henry is at the jail, waiting for Emma, who walks in with Gold. They discover Mary gone and Emma takes off in her bug to find her. While driving on the foggy road, Emma almost hits a fellow citizen of Storybrooke, who goes by the name Jefferson (and wasn’t that a wicked-awesome nod to Jefferson Airplane, who’s most famous song is ‘White Rabbit’!). It seems he’s twisted his ankle after diving into the ditch, and Emma offers him a […]

  •   WOW! What an episode! What a twist! Right? RIGHT?! I did NOT see that coming AT ALL! WOW! Okay, so lets start at the beginning, shall we? In Storybooke, Ruby and Granny get into a tiff and Ruby quits the diner. As she’s waiting for the bus that will take her out of town (it totally would have crashed!), Mary Margaret and Emma happen upon her. We all know how fond Mary is of taking in strays, so she offers Ruby a place to stay. Ruby accepts. Emma gives her a job working at the sheriffs office (Henry suggestion that Ruby might want a job taking things to people in baskets is priceless!), and all is right in Ruby’s […]

  • Tonight we got the story of Grumpy….and WHAT a story it was! Once again, Lee Arenberg hit it out of the park with his brilliant performance. In Fairytale Land, we meet Nova, played by the amazing Amy Acker. Does the woman not age?!     And how Fred-like was Nova? I literally JUST finished watching Angel for the first time two weeks ago, so seeing Amy in this type of character again was almost bittersweet. As Nova is flying over the land, a bit of fairy dust–which we find out is made from diamonds that are mined by dwarfs– accidentally falls onto a giant egg. That egg hatches early and who’s inside? Why, a dwarf, of course! Didn’t you know dwarfs are […]

  • It’s no secret that my favourite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. I mean, I named my daughter ‘Belle’.  So THIS was the week I’ve been looking forward to since day one.  I’m so glad, it didn’t disappoint!   Written by the amazing Jane Espenson (Buffy, Torchwood, BSG), I knew this episode had to be a hit.   In Fairytale Land, we meet Belle, played wonderfully by Lost’s Emilie de Ravin.  Belle’s father’s kingdom is threatened by the Ogre wars, and Belle suggests they bring in Rumpelstiltskin to help.  Of course, when Rumpel helps, a price must be paid. This time his price is Belle…and thus Rump becomes our Beast in this tale.  Rumpel takes Belle to his castle and, of course, […]
