REVIEW: Once Upon A Time “Manhattan”

I really enjoyed tonight episode of Once Upon A Time. The big event in the episode was finding Baefire and learning that he is Neal and Henry’s father. I have been saying this since last year along with many other fans and I was glad I was correct.  It was interesting to watch the character to react to all the revelations since they were coming one after another.

Snow’s and Charming’s discussion about Henry’s family tree and the joke about Thanksgiving was really funny. I am glad that even though they weren’t in the episode very much they still had a great moment.

Elsewhere in Storybrook Cora, Regina and Hook were searching for Rumplestiltskin’s dagger. Hook wanted it so he could use it to kill Rumpelstiltskin and get his revenge. However I am not sure what Cora’s plan is. She says that the can use the dagger to control Rumpelstiltskin and have him kill Snow, Charming and Emma. But this doesn’t really help her. It helps Regina since she will then have Henry but will be blameless for the death of Snow, Charming and Emma. I believe Cora has another plan she has not yet to reveal.

I am also curious about Greg. In the episode he recorded video of Regina while she used magic to search Belle’s purse in the hospital. Who is the person he sends the video to? Why would they believe the video? If I received that I would just assume that some special effects were added.

In Fairlytale land we learn about Rumpelstiltskin during the Orgy war. We learn how he got his limp. It’s self inflicted. After meeting a seer who tell him that his son will be fatherless. Rumpelstiltskin takes a hammer to the leg. He heads home because of his injury. Rumpelstiltskin meets the seer again after he is separated for Baefire. She tells him that he will be reunited with Baefire with the help of a boy but the boy will also be his undoing. Rumpelstiltskin replies that he will just kill they boy. I wonder if Rumpelstiltskin still feels that way now that the boy is Henry, his now revealed grandson?

“Manhattan” was one of the best episodes so far. It has a lot of drama that kept you waiting to see what would happened next. I thinks the actors did a great job reacting to everything. I can’t wait until the next episode which airs March 3rd. What did you think of the episode?

Also I be at Paleyfest for the Once Upon A Time Panel if anyone is going to be there let me know.

What'd you think?
