Why did the Evil Queen cast the curse? How did Prince Charming and Snow White Meet? What kind of trouble did Cinderella get into? All will be revealed over the next three weeks.
Last week’s suspenseful opener hooked fans by leaving them with many questions, some of which will be answered sooner than later.
In this week’s episode, “The Thing You Love Most,” we will meet two classic villains: the Queen’s infamous Magic Mirror (Giancarlo Esposito, “Breaking Bad”) and Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent (Kristin Bauer, “True Blood”). According to ABC Publicity, “Regina does everything in her power to force Emma out of Storybrooke and out of her and Henry’s lives forever. Meanwhile, the chilling circumstances of how the Evil Queen released the curse upon the fairytale world is revealed.” Perhaps Maleficent helped the Evil Queen with creating the curse? We’ll find out soon enough, but in the meantime, take a look at the slideshow to see how the tension rises between Emma and Regina.
Fans of grand romance will be especially excited for “Snow Falls,” the third episode airing November 6, when we flashback to how Snow White and Prince Charming first meet. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the Storybrooke introduction of John Doe and Mary Margaret Blanchard. The preview photos suggest the title can be taken both literally and figuratively as she falls under attack and falls in love. ABC officially says, “At Henry’s urging, Emma convinces Mary Margaret to pay a visit to a comatose John Doe in the hospital and to read to him from the storybook. But Mary Margaret is stunned at the outcome of her visit. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale world, Prince Charming meets Snow White for the first time in a most unexpected way.”
Finally the fourth episode, “The Price of Gold,” airing on November 13 introduces another iconic princess when we meet Snow White’s best friend, Cinderella. ABC teases, “Emma tries to help a young pregnant woman escape from the clutches of Mr. Gold. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale world that was, Cinderella (Jessy Schram, “Falling Skies”) makes a regrettable deal with Rumplestiltskin.” Check out the slideshow to see Cinderella’s magical transformation.
