Enhanced rerun of “The Miller’s Daughter”

This is the enhanced rerun version of episode 2×16 The Miller’s Daughter, one of the best episodes of OUAT ever. Robert Carlyle outdoes himself here, giving a nuanced, spellbinding performance (no pun intended) as Rumpelstiltskin falling in love with the young Cora (Rose McGowan) while teaching her how to perform dark magic, and as RumpelGold, believing he is on his deathbed, saying goodbye to Belle and reconciling with Nealfire.

Rumpelstiltskin and Cora at the spinning wheel. She tells Rumpel about her humiliation and thirst for revenge, then discovers she has succeeded in turning the straw into gold. “Don’t stop,” Rumpel says, “until they are on their knees.”

The Miller’s Daughter originally aired March 10, 2013, and will be broadcast again, in an “enhanced rerun” version (with text comments on the bottom of the screen), on April 7, 2013.

Princess Eva, who was so kind and wise in a previous episode, is younger here and surprisingly cruel. She deliberately trips Cora, the miller’s daughter, who is at the palace to deliver flour, a job that Cora’s drunken father was too far gone to do. King Xavier orders Cora to kneel and apologize to Cora — a scene that echoes the Season 1 scene where a sadistic soldier humiliated Rumpelstiltskin by ordering him to kiss his boot.

The pain of humiliation drove Rumpel to become the murderous Dark One. That same kind of pain turns Cora into the murderous heart-crusher that she becomes.
