Awesome catfight
12 December 2011 | by (Columbus, Ohio USA) – See all my reviews

Way to go, Emma. Rock 'em sock 'em at that mean lady Queen whatserface (Regina, I know, means queen, lol). Regina is one sick puppy, and it looks like she is going to get her comeuppance from several characters as time goes by. I did miss seeing James/Charming, but seeing Mary Margaret/Snow was great. Looks like Regina killed her own father plus Snow's father, not to mention boy-toy Graham. Graham is a doll. I wasn't sure if he was good or evil for quite awhile. He did seem to be a victim of Regina. He was always at her beck and call, for various and sundry "commandments", lol. I wonder if shrink Hopper has a similar arrangement. Ugh.

Graham's huntsman getup was very well designed IMO. His sheriff's badge looks like it came out of the Old West. His Storybrooke leather uniform isn't too bad, though. I did miss seeing shrink Hopper tonight. Looks like Henry is getting the people in the town in his pocket, and there may be less need for Hopper, except maybe for Regina's mangled mind. I think that Hopper stood up to her on a recent show, too. I wait for the new episodes, because this show is colorful and with a new twist around every corner. It has clever writing, and an excellent cast. I think Regina as the Evil Queen has the best costuming, and that standup jeweled collar was great on her tonight. I love her dark red lipstick and dark burgundy dress/skirt she was wearing. Some viewers say Graham is not really dead, and may come back in later episodes. I can't wait. January 2012 cannot get here soon enough. 10/10.
