Once Upon a Time Review: The Price of Gold

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 

Emma tries to help Cinderella who has promised her baby to the evil Mr. Gold AKA Rumpelstiltskin.

Best Moment: Regina’s non-confrontation with Emma when she points out that Emma has had seven addresses in the past 10 years, and asked her “What did you enjoy so much about Tallahassee?”

Verdict: Yet another Disneyfied version of a fairystory, down to the blue dress and glass slippers. It was a serviceable enough story. I liked that Rumpelstiltskin kills Cinderella’s fairy godmother, that made for an interesting twist, which of course becomes the whole crux of the episode. The idea that Ashleigh was giving up her baby hit close to home for Emma since she gave up Henry, and leads to Show ▼

It was nice to see a story that didn’t revolve around Regina hating Emma, there’s really only so much of that you can have in a series, even one with a premise such as this. Although we did see that Regina has rather a… special… relationship with the sheriff, who in turn offers Emma a job. I can’t believe that Regina put him up to it, which makes me wonder what his game is.
