Goofs

When Regina looks at the note from Henry, there is a close up of the paper and it is clearly quite blank, and is supposed to be, revealing to us that she is making this up, as part of her plan. David, however, has no idea it is blank. See more »

Quotes

[August has helped Geppetto fix a cuckoo clock]
Geppetto: Who taught you that?
August W. Booth: My father.
Geppetto: He taught you well. He must be very proud.
August W. Booth: I don't know about that. I don't think I became the man he wanted me to be.
Geppetto: Well, have you tried to make it up to him?
August W. Booth: I made him a promise - a long time ago. By the time I got around to making good on it, I think it was too late.
Geppetto: But you kept your promise. You realized your mistake and you tried to fix it. That's important. If I had a son, that would be enough for me.

Things have been getting better in this neat episode

After concluding the Mary Margaret trial subplot, things have been getting better in this neat episode. Yes, some of the writing came across as a bit sub-par, but that's my only quibble. Most of the writing is superb especially in the scene where Henry stood up to Regina and said this awesome line.

"No matter what you do, Snow White and Charming will be together. The curse will end. Good will win." Jared Gilmore, who plays Henry, does a great job in delivering that line and it shows that the kid does have potential after all. Only time will tell when I review the later episodes. Anyway, the acting is still great, the pacing is solid and doesn't drag, the sets and scenery are still gorgeous, the directing and editing is terrific, and Mark Isham continues to bring some atmospheric music to the entire episode as in the previous episodes. So, overall, almost as perfect, but still a great episode. :)
