  • interesting episode...

    This episode is by far the most intriguing so far. It may not have been what we were used to thus far, but that by no means it was not good. In fact, it raised interesting questions about Rumplestiltskin that really get one's mind thinking. I mean, really... why would he want Cinderella's baby? Why, in fact, would he want any baby? And one could easily think of how he asked Snow for the NAME of her baby. But that's not the same thing, now is it? He is an intriguing character and Robert Carlyle could not be doing a better job at playing him.

    As for those who re disappointed that teh storyline here is not the Cindereall story we all know and have heard 1000 times.... isn't 1000 times enough? This is not a historical documentary; it is a fictional show that alters, intertwines and gives new shape to these old fairy tale characters. If you want a rehashing of the stories that were read to you as a child, then go to the library and head to the kids' section. This is a new take and I am thrilled so far by it
