Snow White's story arc continues in this riveting episode
17 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Heart of Darkness is another great episode and continues the story arc for Snow White after the events of 7:15 where she left Charming by telling him that she doesn't love him by the order of The King. My only quibble is that the dialog is a mixed bag. Some of it is really engaging and smart particularly with Snow White and Charming as well as the scene where Mary Margaret is forced to admit that she killed Kathryn after hiring Gold as her lawyer. However, some of it is really corny (Although I do like the reference "With A Smile and A Song" from the Disney cartoon. Kudos.). Everything else turned out fine.

The performances are still good, the dialog is still good, the story's well-written, the script's nice, the pacing is much tighter, the music score/scenery are still beautiful and the directing improved over the course of the episode. So, overall, another great episode and only six episode left until I'm done reviewing this season.
