We’re right where we left off in “7:15 am” where Snow White drank her forget-me potion and completely erased Prince Charming from her memory. Only problem is that the side-effects were severe. Not only did she forget him but her heart became full of darkness, not anything resembling the purity her name represents. Why, she’s taken to lulling sweet bluebirds into her home only to try and off them with a broom. Some might say her attitude reflects a certain dwarf. I won’t name any names, but I think we can all guess which grumpy character I’m referring too.
As a result, the dwarves plus Jiminy Cricket have staged an intervention. They just want the old Snow White back; the one that knows how to love, who’s kind and isn’t seeking violent revenge on the Evil Queen.
But Snow White doesn’t remember such love, nor does she care. They can just get used to or get over it. All she does remember is that the Evil Queen did her wrong and she’s got to pay.
The Queen, he says, will be heading to her summer palace via the Queen’s Highway. Yeah, it’s winter, and there is snow on the ground, but the Queen’s hoping summer will come early, I guess.
In order to kill the Queen without detection and on the first try, Snow White seeks Rumplestiltskin’s help. He may just have the solution, I mean potion, she needs to get that straight-shooting arrow. And he does. Whoever her target may be, she cannot miss with this arrow. No price for such help this time. Rumplestiltskin is simply invested in her future. (Can we all say, “Emma!”)?
Snow White stakes out the perfect location to stay hidden from the road but have the exact line of sight to take out the queen by arrow. She’ll kill her when the she’s on the move.
But Prince Charming won’t do that. He can’t do that. He loves her with an eternal kind of love that would be able to transcend any realm they may find themselves in. It’s just a matter of getting her to remember their love. I mean, he would even let her tie him to a tree and leave him in the cold woods all alone.
What will it take? Follow her around? Remind her of their memories together? Kiss her?
Sacrifice his life for her? Bingo! Take an arrow for his true love and viola! she’s back! No, he didn’t die, but he could have, and that’s what counts.
Yes, he’s her Charming, her Prince Charming. She remembers. And she loves him, completely and forever. Now they can be together always.
But that would be too simple. King George is still after him and he’s madder than ever since Prince Charming ran away from a profitable merger wedding. And so King George’s men haul away the injured prince as Snow White watches from behind a tree.
Now it’s Snow White’s turn. She will find him, she will always find him!
That doesn’t matter anymore. She’s confessed, her fingerprints are all over the box, and Regina wants what she wants. Mary Margaret can’t be free to roam the streets of Storybrooke. She must be jailed.
And so she is. But who’s going to believe her story? Emma? Yes, but she doesn’t know how to help. Not after the evidence keeps piling up against Mary Margaret. First the jewelry box then the hidden dagger in Mary Margaret’s house. The list keeps growing.
Oh, David, eyes open or shut you just can’t seem to get hold of the truth. Can’t you see the difference between reality and your memories from another life? I mean, seriously.
Anyway, David can’t stand behind Mary Margaret anymore. Not after he’s remembered the “truth.”
Heartbroken from David’s lack of “charming-ness” and any type of true love quality, Mary Margaret’s only hope is Mr. Gold. He professes to be invested in her future. Why? It doesn’t matter so long as he can get her out of this mess.
And what is she supposed to do with this skull-key that suddenly turned up in her cot, especially when it’s the very key to unlock her cell?
What to do, what to do?
Run, of course...
1) How does Kathryn’s “heart” have her DNA on it?
2) What will Rumplestiltskin do with his true love in a bottle? Perhaps create the most perfect curse or perhaps it is the way to break said curse?
3) Who hid the key for Mary Margaret?
4) What is Mr. Gold’s plan to expose Regina?
5) What is going to happen to Prince Charming?
