Specific, annoying little world (and a little more plagiarism). Mulan and Aurora lead the bound Emma and Snow White down a beach littered with old ship timbers, and to their "home" (it's got to be Neverland, right). Once they reach the little village, Snow knees Aurora in the gut (unnecessarily, I think, because Aurora doesn't seem to be holding onto Snow by then), runs, and commands Emma to do the same. Emma does, but Mulan grabs a slingshot and strikes Snow with a rock. She's down for the count. Taking a page out of Ana Lucia's book, Mulan orders her minions to throw our princesses in the pit. Yeah, I already didn't like you Mulan. Now I don't even want to watch you. Down in said pit, as Emma tries to wake her mother, another mother emerges from the shadows and asks Emma if she wants help. It's Cora. Quick, Snow, wake up and save your girl from making a horrible mistake!
I'm almost out of words. (I have to go huff some books.) I did want to just mention that I'm struck (again) by what a visually beautiful show this is. That last scene of the four women traveling the coast stuck out, but really, everything about this show is beautiful. Regina and Young Snow's costumes were particularly well done, and I love how the pleats (vents?) on their puffed sleeves echo the sleeves on Disney's Snow White's gown. That beautiful moment with Charming and Henry mirroring each other's movements was well blocked, executed and shot, too. I love all the loving care that goes into all of the worlds on this show.
I'll be back Monday morning with coverage of "Lady of the Lake." In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where, if you try to leave us, you'll forget who you truly are.
