Once Upon A Time - "The Stable Boy" - S01E18 - 4/1/2012

Really? THAT'S why you hate Snow White so much? If Regina had run off with Daniel, her mother would have hunted them down and killed him, so the result would have been the same. Snow was a child, and had good intentions with what she did. She didn't know that Cora was a power-hungry biyotch.

I guess in the next episode, Regina kills her mother and takes her power, probably with Rumpelstiltskin's help.

I guessed when Sidney brought the flowers that they had a bug... way too predictable. Most of this episode was predictable, unfortunately, once we got 10 minutes in. Kathryn's reappearance was the only surprise. I wonder where Gold found her? And how do they explain the heart now?

Yeah, looks like that's one frame that's not long for this world.

They did a fantastic job casting that young Snow. She was very good and she bore a striking resemblance to Ginnifer Goodwin.

I agree 100%. At times it was almost disturbing how closely she managed to mirror some of Ginnifer's facial reactions and body language.

I looked her up on IMDb and it has a link to her Twitter stream. I love her exuberance for being on Once Upon a Time, it's really sweet.

Not bad. I wasn't too disappointed with the reason Regina hates snow, although the writers had gotten themselves into such a corner that there wasn't much of anywhere else they could go: it wasn't a big surprise. Still, Snow did break a promise and it did cost Regina her love. We don't know the extent of the mother's powers so we don't know if she could have tracked down Regina or not, and once Regina was married to the stablehand I don't think tracking her down would have served much purpose: I doubt she could have come back and married the king anyway.

I was satisfied with the resolution of that plotline. I'm also happy Emma found out about Glass: that was getting pretty stale.

Kathryn reappearing?!?! So, what's the story with the DNA test on the heart that showed it was Kathryn's? Did Regina have that faked too? Seems... odd.

Yawn. This episode was boring. A big letdown after last week. Obviously Regina can't just be an evil beeyotch, gotta give her a sympathetic back story. ZZzZzzzzzz.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. Whoever made that casting decision deserves a bonus!

I think it's only somewhat sympathetic. How one reacts to bad situations says more about them than good. She went from finding out what Snow did to deciding that she wanted revenge extremely quickly.

It's great that she wanted to live her own life, but even selfish people can want that. In this case, her mother was being unreasonable. But whose to say she wouldn't have run off with the stable boy even had he been someone who had wanted to run off with her parents' money?

All we really saw in this episode was that Regina can be friendly when she is getting what she wants. And when she doesn't, she has an extreme reaction to it.

Well, we also found out where Regina learned the heart trick. Does that make her the Princess of Hearts?

I guess we can read between the lines about how the bug was able to help Regina know to replace the shovel, but I just felt like there was a piece of the story missing there with the way they portrayed it. We didn't see Emma talking about the evidence while in her office at all. Without that scene showing a conversation that the bug might have captured, it could just as easily have been the DA or the judge who signed the search warrant that called Regina and gave her a head's up before Emma got there.

I suppose Regina overheard Emma's phone call to get the warrant? It's at times like these when I wonder if there isn't a scene that was cut for time...

I did like one of Ginnifer Goodwin's Tweets

Quote:
OMG #OnceAUponTime OMG OMG OMG! I'm gonna retire & let Miss @BaileeMadison take over!
Bailee actually has more followers than Ginnifer.

When Cora took Daniel aside I said to myself "She's gonna rip his heart out", and she did!

I also agree with the casting of the young Snow White. Brilliantly done.

That was some of the best child acting I have ever seen.
I have to rewatch the episode for story because I was so mesmerized by that child's performance.

I saw episode photos for this so I assumed that was the reason but was really hoping it was something more creative than this. The stable boy wasn't even hot.

I thought she was a little over the top, but the utter innocence made it seem right. Especially for the character of Snow White.

Haha! Sorry didn't mean to be so unclear. I don't KNOW but I have serious suspicions based on episode pics that I've seen that make way too much sense to be wrong......although I hope so. Not loving where I think they are going.

Okay sorry to sidetrack, back to the episode at hand.

I assumed it was far more basic than that and had nothing to do with the bug.

Wouldn't getting a warrant involve speaking with the DA's office? And is it not clear that he is in Regina's pocket?

So I assumed that after getting the warrant, the DA told Regina to expect Emma and what she was looking for.

I was also very impressed by the casting of little Snow. She had the appearance and mannerisms of big Snow. I really believed it was a younger version of the same person!

While I was really impressed with Little Snow, Young Regina looked superb in the beginning. Later in the episode she was showing her age a bit (in her forehead mostly when she was distraught), but in the first few scenes she really looked very very young.
