Excellent Edition to a Great New Series.
27 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

So far the series has taken us from how Snow White and Prince Charming met to Cinderella's transformation from maid to princess. This time however we go deeper into the unknown tale of Jiminy Cricket and his quest to find himself.

In this episodes lives begin changing and this change shows greater when old mines in the town suddenly blow up. Henry believes this to be related to his theory that the town is made-up of fairy-tale characters. As he tries to convince others of his theory Regina pushes Archie to try and get Henry to end his crusade. After Archie tells Henry he's delusional Henry decides to dare the dangers of the crumbling mines to find proof that he's not crazy. Things then get dangerous when Regina and Emma must put there feelings aside if they want to save Henry from the mines.

This is another great edition in one of the most unexpected success' of the 2011-2012 television season. Once again we find ourselves learning more about another famous fairy-tale character and the unexpected twist in his story just like Cinderella and The Evil Queen. This is probably the most engaging episode yet as we dive deeper into the towns history as well as the relationship between Mary and John Doe. A must see for fans of the show.
