I am still on tears
1 May 2012 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

Why i don't like Pinocchio? Because I cry from the beginning to the end all the time, all Pinocchios. Its worst than cut onions. This episode was priceless, for me the best episode ever, will die waiting for the next season and I want punch Emma in the face and honestly after I found out why Regina hates Snow White so much, I kind of understand her. This series caught me so badly, I am a supernatural fan, but Once upon a time has all my love and respect. Well, as I must write 10 lines minimum, cant leave without bring up how much Robert Carlisle and Lana Parrila add to the show, both of them bring so many different emotions, that I wish in the end both get their happiness, Regina with her father and beloved and Mr Gold to don't be the dark one anymore and have his son back and also marry Bella, as he apparently is the Best here.
