Plus, Snow wages war against Cora! Storybrooke is about to become a battlefield.
Mommy issues were in full force on the March 3 episode of Once Upon A Time: Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) reflected on the death of her mother, which she totally blames herself for, while Regina (Lana Parrilla) questioned how loyal she is to her own mom-ster in present-day Storybrooke. Oh, and we may have finally met Peter Pan.
Is Snow White Going Dark?
Desperate to get the dagger back from Snow and company, Cora (Barbara Hershey) and Regina sunk to their lowest low yet: kidnapping the Storybrooke counterpart of Snow’s maid — played by Downton Abbey‘s Mrs. Patmore! — and trading her own heart for the evil weapon. And even after a teary-eyed Snow handed it over, Cora still murdered her.
But Cora’s victory came at a price: Regina learned her mother posed as the Blue Fairy when Snow’s mother was very sick. Cora manipulated Snow into believing she chose to let her mother die — all so Regina could eventually become queen, herself. She even learned that Cora caused Snow’s horse accident, which led Regina to meeting the newly single king.
Taking in everything that happened, Snow made an intense vow: “I’m going to kill Cora!” But does she really have what it takes?
Is Neal Also Peter Pan?
When Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) launched a sneak-attack against Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) in New York, filling his body with a powerful poison, there was only one way to save his life: get him back to Storybrooke ASAP! And when the gang realized the only way to get there in time would be to charter the Jolly Roger, Neal (Michael Raymond-James) immediately volunteered to grab the steering wheel.
In case you need more evidence that Neal is also Peter Pan, he told Emma (Jennifer Morrison) that our world wasn’t the first one he journeyed to after the fairytale world. If it was, he says, he would have been much older.
Seriously, a world full of pirate ships where people don’t grow up? Sounds like Neverland to me!
