Oh damn! This show just got real. The reveal of Katherine at the end was such a shocker. So Regina didn’t have her all along? Where have she been? Finally, this show is moving along.
I must say, Lana did some excellent acting today. I hate[d] Regina down to the very core, I want her to have the biggest comeuppance, but today, her backstory changed everything. Do I condone what she’s doing to Snow? No, especially when Snow was just a child, and only had the best intention in heart. Plus, children do not know better. I feel this should have been known from the start on Regina's behalf.
That scene with Mary and Regina in the jail cell was the best, you can clearly see that Regina with all her heart believe this is the best to get her revenge, I, however, feel as though it unjustly. If you want revenge Regina, then do it to the person who actually wronged you, not someone who’s completely different and literally have no idea of her actual crime. It seems like a cheap shot to me. As well as that scene between the two were, it was completely cheapen because it was between Regina and Mary, not Regina and Snow White, as it should have been.
I’m glad Emma’s “superpower” was addressed, because it was really pissing me off that she wasn’t able to see the thinnest of lies. Especially Sidney’s, the one who consistently lied. I hope she drops this superpower nonsense of being able to spot a lie. Bitch please.
Good casting on young Snow. I could swear I saw Mary Margaret in her.
Agreed. She was so good that I thought that there were some CGI trick that progressed Ginnifer down to a child's age.
This episode was awesome, but it leaves one question left unanswered: How did Regina get her powers? Her mother has it, so why doesn’t she? I don’t know if I was the only one, but I was thinking that Regina would kill her mother in a fit of rage and acquire the power as a transfer. I suppose it could still happen.
