Nice Rumpelstiltskin episode in the show and a vast improvement over the previous episodes
1 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While The Price of Gold isn't exactly solid, it does a fantastic job continuing to explore the origins of Rumpelstiltskin about how his deal made from Cinderella became regrettable and goes back to develop Emma, Mary Margaret, Regina, and Sheriff Graham. The storyline, while having it's stilted moments, is good; the dialog is certainly much fresher than the previous episodes; the visuals are still very beautiful and as usual, the characters are still likable and the acting is still good.

Sorry I have to rush this, but I've got lots of episodes to review. Not that I'm complaining or anything. It's just a long road for me to review all three seasons to catch up to the fourth season.
