I guess it's fair to say that this episode's storyline was not quite the same or similar to the first three. It branched out into a totally different storyline, and the characters like the Evil Queen, Snow White and Prince Charming played very minimal roles, both in past and present.
Aside from that, the storyline was actually extremely interesting. We learnt more about Rumpelstiltskin, a.k.a. Mr. Gold, as well as Cinderella. Storyline didn't og how I expecfted, and it certainly branched off the traditional Cinderella story, but that's not a bad thing! It made it unpredictable and very enjoyable!
I'm interested to know whether or not Cinderella will play any sort of a major role throughout the future episodes, but even if she doesn't, this episode could have some extreme ramifications for Ema, in many ways.
Keep it up, OUaT!!! I'm loving this show after just four episodes and I can't wait for more!!! :)
