'Once Upon A Time' Recap: Regina Frames David — Will He End Up In Jail?

This week’s episode proved that everyone in Storybrooke is a cheater. Even the nuns.

I hope everyone who watched the March 4 episode of Once Upon A Time already knew where babies come from. Otherwise they’d be totally confused by the opening scene, in which a fairy helped a dwarf hatch from an egg by sprinkling it with magic dust. The dwarf in question turned out to be Grumpy — whose birth name was “Dreamy,” apparently — and this episode revealed a whole new side to Storybrooke’s town drunk.

Dreamy (Lee Arenberg) tried to leave his life of mining and midgets behind when he fell in love with a whack-job fairy named Nova (Amy Acker), but after a brief chat with the Blue Fairy and his fellow dwarves, he realized it would never work out between them. You see, haters don’t believe in true love — and that loveless blue biatch is a hater.

But Dreamy’s real-world counterpart had a bit more luck in the love department. Leroy spent the hour romancing Nova’s counterpart — a ditzy nun named Astrid — and managed to win her heart in the end. Of course, there is one little problem: She’s a freaking nun! That means she’s already technically promised herself to God, so hooking up with Leroy would make her a cheater. And then she’d be no better than that skank Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin). And, wait, didn’t she also used to be a nun? Suspicious!

Meanwhile, Sheriff Leather Jacket (Jennifer Morrison) teamed up with Sidney (Giancarlo Esposito) to track down Kathryn (Anastasia Griffith) — but Emma had no idea Sydney’s “inside source” was actually Regina (Lana Parrilla). Just when I thought that chick couldn’t get any shadier…

Kathryn’s phone records revealed that David (Josh Dallas) was the last person she spoke to, making him the prime suspect in her disappearance. I wonder if David will look good in a jumpsuit. (Oh, who am I kidding?)

OK, I know this episode was kind of a snooze-fest, but we’ve still got a lot to talk about: Is Regina responsible for Kathryn’s disappearance? Where did she go? And what, exactly, does Mr. Gold have against nuns? See you in the comments section!

Am I the only one that found the whole lot of the life of a dwarve condemned to mining fairydust a little too akin to slavery? And instead of getting out of it, he ends up choosing to stay! Not good. It was nice to see Amy Acker back in action though. I really hope Emma’s superpower starts working again!
