I’m going to be out late this evening and won’t be able to watch the episode until later tonight. So I prepared some questions last night, just based on the very short description of the episode in the press release and on what I’m guessing is going to happen. Since I haven’t seen the episode, I’m just taking a stab in the dark, and the questions may or may not make any sense. If they don’t make sense — or even if they do — then feel free to talk about whatever struck you as most interesting about the episode.
The press release said that tonight, “the event that caused the Evil Queen to loathe Snow White is revealed.” Was it really revealed, or was that just a tease? If it was revealed, are you satisfied with the explanation? Do you like Snow White any more or any less now? How about the Evil Queen — do you like her more or less? Does she seem more or less evil?
If they showed the Evil Queen before she was evil, did you find that believable? Do you think it’s really true, as Regina and Rumpel both said in an earlier episode, that evil is made, not born — or do you think that Regina really was born evil?
Which part of the story was stronger this week — the Fairy Tale Land story or the Storybrooke story? Are you satisfied with where the Mary Margaret storyline is going?
An Evil-Queen-centric episode is bound to have some great costumes. Were any of them especially noteworthy?
What did you think of the guest stars — Barbara Hershey as Cora, Noah Bean as Daniel/stable boy, Richard Schiff as King Leopold and Bailee Madison as the young Snow White?
Did this episode move the general story forward?
Is this a good stopping point as we go into a two-week hiatus?
