  • Love at first theft.

    8.5
    The fun with this episode is in watching the snarky and promiscuous relationship between Snow and Charming blossom into the relationship we all know and love from the books. There's oodles of playfulness to be found in Snow's teasing of Prince Charming; their dialogue is snappy and believable, as their entanglement, even in the fairytale land, is tackled with a nuanced sense of awareness. Ginnfer Goodwin is an absolute gem, managing to juggle two completely different characters with a fine balancing act of charisma and vulnerability, when she steps onto the screen, all eyes fall on her here.moreless
  • Phenomenal episode!

    Just three episodes in, and I can tell that this is going to be an extremeyl interesting show for sure!



    The storyline today was circilng around Prince Charming and Snow White, both in the present and past, and the way they initially met was actually quite funny! I particularly loved the secne on the troll bridge - it incorporates a classic fairytale concept into a great little drama! It's very well done!



    I hope the storyline continues to impress! Keep it up, OUaT!!! :)moreless

    In this installment we see how Snow and Charming met, fought each other, and fought side by side to recover something that belonged to charming. On the other side of reality, StoryBrooke, Emma gets Mary to read the story to John Doe so she could prove to Henry that all his theories are just in his head. John Doe wakes up much to everyone's surprise and escapes, only to be found by Regina who has a cover story on his revival and life in StoryBrooke.



    Loved it!moreless
  • ahhhh.... LOVED this episode!

    This episode was absolutely amazing. The show is amazing! Even though we are only 3 episodes in, I have been a fan of the Snow White/Prince Charming characters since the first episode, and learning about how they met and seeing John Doe/Prince Charming wake up was literally an awesome moment. In the first episode, I actually really thought that he had died when he was stabbed so seeing him in a coma was a great feeling, so seeing him wake up from a coma was even greater.



    I don't know what to say, the episode was the greatest out of the 3 we have seen. I am really looking forward to the progression of those two. TV shows really get to my emotions sometimes. I am such a girl. LOL. I was actually feeling upset when we saw that one girl say she was John Doe's wife. I felt like screaming at the tv saying no....Snow white is.



    As for the other characters, Regina is evil. haha. Her real life self is basically just really moody/nasty real life person you see in your everyday life. Rumplestilskin, i can't really figure him out. I can't figure out if he is good or bad. Maybe he just has his own separate plan of his own. I guess we will just have to wait and see. One week is just too long!! haha.moreless

    Snow Falls was a superb episode of Once Upon A Time and I really enjoyed watching this episode because it had a great visual aesthetic and the actors were all charming in their roles. The flashes to the fairy tale world were fun and well done production wise and I like the quality of the series so far. The story is intriguing and I certainly look forward to watching more episodes!!!!!!!moreless

    • Prince Charming: You're a... girl!
      Snow White: Woman.

    • Mary Margaret: Guess if true love was easy, we'd all have it.

    • Snow White: Is this is the only way you can catch a woman--by entrapping her?
      Prince Charming: It's the only way to catch thieving scum.
      Snow White: Oh. Aren't you a real Prince Charming?
      Prince Charming: I have a name, you know.
      Snow White: Don't care. "Charming" suits you. Now cut me down... Charming.

    • Prince Charming: I'll release you when you return the leather pouch you stole with my jewels.
      Snow White: Not the jewelry type.
      Prince Charming: Indeed. I noticed.
      Snow White: What is that supposed to mean? Are you insulting me?
      Prince Charming: No, quite right. My apologies. How dare I cast aspersions on the person who robbed me.

    • Emma: (about the comatose John Doe) I told Henry we would all meet tomorrow for breakfast at Granny's and you would give a full report.
      Mary Margaret: Well, then, I suppose I should get ready for my date. I'll have to do all the talking.

    • Mary Margaret: (reading from storybook) They didn't need words to express how they felt in their hearts. It was here in the shadow of the troll bridge that their love was born. Where they knew no matter how they were separated they would always... (John awakes)

    • Emma: Kid, you need to go home. Where's your mom? She's gonna kill me and then you and then me again.

    • Snow White: Anyway, how could I let Prince Charming die?
      Prince Charming: I told you. I have a name. It's James.
      Snow White: It's nice to meet you, James.

    • Prince Charming: Well, goodbye, Snow White.
      Snow White: Goodbye, Prince Charming.
      Prince Charming: I told you, it's James.
      Snow White: Nah. Still like "Charming" better.

    • Regina: We'll talk about your insubordination later. Do you know what insubordination means? It means you're grounded.

    • Regina: Not having someone. Well... that's the worst curse imaginable.
