Another classic episode in the first season next to That Still Small Voice and The Stable Boy
31 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember when I said that That Still Small Voice and The Stable Boy are classic episodes? Well, looks like I found another one.

It does a neat job in continuing the flashbacks for Mary Margaret and David where Prince Charming gets captured by the Evil Queen and it's up to Snow White and the dwarfs along with Red Riding Hood, Granny, and the fairies to save him. The pacing is great not to mention the solid direction in the cliffhanger where Henry eats the apple strudel and gets poisoned and the scene where Mary Margaret eats the poison apple before she fells into a death sleep, causing Prince Charming to wake up and shout this line.

"What have you done?! What have you done?! Snow!!!!" That bit of acting is heartbreaking and the performances continue to shine with Ginnifer Goodwin and Lana Parrilla delivering some of their best lines. The script is also well-written. It recalls the events that happened in Fruit of the Poisonous Tree and The Stable Boy. The action sequence where Snow White, the dwarfs, Red, Granny, and the fairies fight against King George's army is exciting and well-choreographed with Mark Isham delivering some of the most solid piece of music by blending the action, the drama, and the suspense really well. The directing is superb and the sets along with the scenery continue to be gorgeous throughout. There's not a single problem I do have with the episode. Just one more episode and I'm done with the 1st Season. Thumbs up! :)
