This week we finally learned the story of how Snow White and Prince Charming met. And it’s not your Disney happily ever after…it’s better! Here’s what went down on the latest episode of ONCE UPON A TIME.
Mary’s class volunteers at the hospital where a John Doe is in a coma. Henry’s convinced that it’s Prince Charming so he comes up with a brilliant plan for Mary (aka Snow White) to read the story to him while he’s in a coma to remind him who he is. Mary and Emma agree that playing along with Henry is the best way for him to realize what’s real and what isn’t. But when Mary reads to coma-boy, he grabs her hand. Before they can figure out John Doe’s deal, he goes missing. So you tell me, how does a guy in a coma escape the hospital? Out the backdoor of course and into the woods. The Mayor takes Henry home where he immediately escapes again. Meanwhile, Mary starts questioning Emma about her past. Emma’s hesitant to tell her Henry’s theory that Snow White/Mary is her Mother. Talk about freaky. I wouldn’t tell her either. Meanwhile, they find John Doe and he doesn’t remember who he is. Then his WIFE (his fiancee-to-be before he met Snow White in Story Book Land) appears and the Mayor looks more smug than usual. Henry’s still convinced that John Doe was searching for Mary and Emma smells something fishy with the Mayor’s version of things. Is she starting to believe Henry’s tales?
Story Book Land
Prince Charming is chasing a thief through the forest and guess who it turns out to be…SNOW WHITE! She lifted his prized ring that he was about to use to propose to another girl for some sort of business transaction/arranged marriage. He blackmails Snow into taking him to where she sold the stolen goods…how every true love story begins. Turns out Snow White isn’t the Queen’s biggest fan and thought the carriage she was stealing from was hers. Instead, she and Charming run into some trouble. The Queen’s out to get her heart. And when Prince Charming saves her from the Queen’s Henchmen, Snow’s a little confused about his intentions. When the trolls who Snow sold the stolen booty to get violent, things take a turn and Snow ends up saving Charming. How’s that for a twist on convention? They seem a little reluctant to part after they both get what they want.
Will John Doe ever remember his true identity (and true love!)? How did Snow and Charming end up married with a kid? I’m sure these answers and more will be revealed in future episodes…
