  • Review: The Price of Gold

    This episode told the story of Cinderella in the flashbacks, and Ashley's pregnancy in the present-day.

    This was the first episode that really disappointed me. The casting for Cinderella wasn't that great. The character wasn't very likeable, especially because she was portrayed as rather dim, not reading the contract, and making a deal with Rumplestiltskin even though he killed the Fairy Godmother.

    I really didn't like the major change in the Cinderella story... I've loved the twists so far, but this one totally distorted the original story and Rumplesiltskin felt forced in.

    The present-day tale of Ashley was't that engrossing, plus it was frustrating to see Emma make a deal with Mr. Gold and now she owes him. It would have been better if Emma had used the law to force Mr. Gold's hand.

    There were some good moments with Henry and Emma, though, but overall, the casting and writing both contributed to this being a mediocre and disappointing episode.
