Snow who apparently had a brain tumor for breakfast thinks this idea sounds awesome and she starts walking. I'm sending in a dove with a copy of He's Just Not That Into You attached to its leg. I mean, come on woman, you spear hunt! Don't fall for this hey baby malarkey.
IRL, Mary Margaret drives deep into the woods. The road is closed, but she grabs the bird's cage and continues on foot. Snow grabs a basket of flowers and a cloak to sneak into the castle. She succeeds, but before she can
hook up meet up with James she is grabbed by the royal guards and thrown in the hay-lined clink. She tries to find a way out of the cell, but there appears to be no way out of, you know, a jail cell. Now if only the jailer had left his keys on a hook and she could hook her belt together with Bobby's, Peter's and Greg's belt and Marcia's, Jan's and Cindy's shoelaces and grab the keys!
Instead, all she has to contend with is Grumpy. The dwarf, not the life choice. Grumpy tells her that he's been stuck in there foreves and there is no way out. Snow tells Grumpy that she has True Love on her side and she has to get out and Grumpy snorts. He was in love once, and now look at him. Just when Snow is about to get in a serious funk, Grumpy's brother comes to spring him. What impeccable timing you have! Stealthy Dwarf unlocks Grumpy, but leaves Snow White there. Well, he was going to, but when Snow called after Grumpy wishing him good luck in finding love again, Grumpy (who really doesn't live up to his name) unlocks her door.
Back in the real world, Mary Margaret isn't having nearly Snow's luck. As she tries to find the bird's flock, she somehow without really moving slips and falls off a cliff. Okay, Show, that's enough of that. She's clinging to a tree root over a precipice in a storm and her handgrip is slipping when ... David saves her. Oh jeeze. This show is better than this, right?
Mary Margaret hugs him and he says, "Didn't think I'd let you come out here alone, did you?" She doesn't even thank him but instead starts running up the path back to The Bird, which clearly deserves capitalization because it has become emblematic of Mary Margaret's hopes and dreams and ovaries. She runs to the bird with David running after her asking what the heck she is doing. As it starts pouring rain, Mary Margaret runs for the bird and David grabs her and insists that they have to leave. Ugh! She's a grown up! She can make her own weird choices to save birds in storms if she wants to. And where does your wife think you are, anyway?
