Recap

This section is a detailed recap of this episode. There are major spoilers. Click to expand.

In Storybrooke, the recently arrived stranger is being questioned by Henry Mills. Regina Mills sees them and runs over, upset.

At Emma Swan and Mary Margaret Blanchard's loft, Mary Margaret has overslept. She rushes to get to school by 7:15 A.M., to help her students with a science project. She is actually rushing to Granny's Diner, to run into David Nolan.

David enters and the two chat for a minute then he leaves. Emma then enters and asks her what is going on. Mary Margaret admits that she cannot get David out of her head and that she has been coming here every day at 7:15 A.M. to see him. She can't help it and wishes that there was a way to cure her feelings.

In the Enchanted Forest, Snow White is hunting near the forest when Red Riding Hood arrives up with food and news. She tells Snow White that Prince Charming is to marry King Midas' daughter in two days' time. Snow White admits that she came out into the woods to help her forget him, but that she has done nothing, but think about him. She wishes that there was a way to forget him. Red tells her there might be a way, and she has heard rumors of a man that can help.

Snow White journeys to a lake to visit the mysterious man, who is revealed to be Rumplestiltskin. He uses water from the lake and hair plucked from Snow White's head to fashion her a potion. He tells her the potion will make her forget Prince Charming entirely. When Snow White asks his price, all he wants are the strands of her hair, which he had already taken, but not used in the making of the potion.

Back in Storybrooke, Mary Margaret is shopping for supplies for an impending storm when she bumps into Kathryn Nolan, who drops a pregnancy test. After Kathryn walks away, Regina appears and tells Mary Margaret that it is the couple's personal business and to keep it quiet.

In the Enchanted Forest, Prince Charming speaks with King George, who tells him that he knows that Charming is in love with someone else and wants him to end it. Prince Charming is not happy with this, and as a result he uses a dove to send a letter to Snow White, revealing his love for her and requesting that she meet him. He writes her that, if she does not come, he will know it means she does not care for him.

In Storybrooke, while walking through the woods, Mary Margaret sees a trapped dove. She takes it to the animal shelter, where she runs into David. The veterinarian, Dr. Thatcher, tells her that the bird is fine; however, the other doves of its kind are migrating and that these doves mate for life. If not reunited with its flock it has a chance of being left behind. If this happens and the dove is left alone, she will be alone and miserable for the rest of her life. Mary Margaret is upset by this and goes out into the woods before the storm arrives to try to find the other doves, despite David warning her not to.

In the Enchanted Forest, Snow White receives and reads Prince Charming's letter. Realizing Prince Charming's feelings for her, Snow White prepares to sneak into King George's castle by pretending to bring a basket of flowers for the upcoming wedding. After making her way into the very room that Prince Charming is in, and just as she notices him, but before he sees her, a guard catches Snow White. She is imprisoned in the castle dungeon. While imprisoned, she meets Grumpy, who tells her about his lost love. He tried to get her a diamond, but it turned out to be stolen and now he has been arrested. Stealthy, another of the dwarves, breaks in and frees Grumpy and Snow White. While escaping the castle, however, Stealthy is killed by King George's men and Snow exchanges her freedom for Grumpy's life.

In Storybrooke, Mary Margaret brings the dove into the woods, attempting to find its flock. Finding that the road she is traveling on is blocked off, she continues on foot. As she sets the dove down, a loud crash of thunder scares Mary Margaret and she slips off a cliff, nearly falling to her death and forcing her to hang on for dear life. David shows up and saves her just in time. The storm then hits, and David and Mary take shelter in a nearby cabin.

The two express their feelings, each revealing their reasons for going to Granny's at 7:15 A.M. Just as they are about to kiss, Mary Margaret asks how David can do this when Kathryn is pregnant. David, however, is surprised by this information. At that moment, the storm breaks, and Mary Margaret goes to release the dove, with David chasing after her. He tells her that he feels like he has two different lives: one with her and one with Kathryn. He claims that the one with Mary Margaret is the only one that feels real.

Regina asks Emma to find out about the mysterious stranger and what he is doing in town. Emma finds him at the diner and questions him about the box he carries around. He tells her that he could keep the contents of the box a secret, and that not knowing and wondering would drive her crazy. He then tells her that he will show her what is in the box if she agrees to a drink. He opens the box to reveal an old type writer and claims that he is a writer. He leaves, and Emma asks about the drink, to which he replies "sometime."

In the Enchanted Forest, Snow White is brought before King George, who reveals that he knows about the letter Prince Charming sent her since Snow White dropped it when she was captured. He tells Snow White that love is a disease and demands that she tell Prince Charming that she does not love him. If she refuses, he will kill Prince Charming, not her. She asks how he could to do that to his own son, and George responds tells her that he is not his son.

Snow White goes and tells Prince Charming that she is not in love with him. Prince Charming is visibly upset, and Snow White leaves. While walking back into the woods, she is joined by the remaining dwarves. Grumpy tells her that with Stealthy dead, they have all lost someone today. Snow White takes out the potion given her by Rumplestiltskin, but Grumpy convinces her not to take it. He tells her that suffering makes one who they are.

In Storybrooke, David and Kathryn discuss their relationship. Kathryn tells David that she is not pregnant and is relieved. She asks him if he is willing to go to therapy with Dr. Hopper and David agrees. He decides to skip getting coffee at the diner and instead stays and has breakfast with Kathryn. Mary Margaret is visibly depressed as she is eating breakfast and looks at the clock, it is nearing 7:15 A.M. She does not go to the diner either.

In the Enchanted Forest, Prince Charming is looking for Snow White in the woods. He runs into Red Riding Hood and asks her where Snow White is. Red tells him that she has gone. Prince Charming tells Red that he will find Snow White. At the home of the seven dwarves, Grumpy is overjoyed when he learns about the impending marriage between Princess Abigail and Prince Charming being called off. He rushes to Snow White's room to tell her the good news. After he informs her, Snow White cheerfully asks him who he is talking about. Shocked, Grumpy gazes at the bedside table. On it is an empty vial that once held the potion made by Rumplestiltskin.

In Storybrooke, Mary Margaret is in Granny's Diner and David walks in. Upon seeing her, David hastily exits, and Mary Margaret chases after him. She asks him what he is doing there, and he tells her that he is trying to avoid her. Mary Margaret tells him that she is trying to avoid him. David tells her that Kathryn is not pregnant and the two kiss. Regina is revealed to be watching the couple from her car.

Trivia

Production Notes

  • The title card features Red Riding Hood.
  • For the scene where Mary Margaret is rushing to make it to the diner in time, Ginnifer Goodwin was really brushing her teeth, as she hates TV shows and movies where actresses don't have real toothpaste in their mouth.[4]
  • The boat scene was filmed in a fake lake built on a soundstage. Ginnifer Goodwin kept crashing the row boat into the docks, so there were people under the boat in wet suits steering it.[4]
  • Several different birds doubled as the injured dove that Mary Margaret rescues. The bird used to film the scene where Mary Margaret finds the injured dove is called Chester. Another bird is called Buster. The birds were real homing pigeons, and when they were released they flew to their home several hours away. The rest of the flock were CGI.[5]
  • The scene where Snow White receives Prince Charming's letter was originally filmed with Charming as a background silhouette, with Snow White pacing back and forth.[5]
    • While shooting this scene, Josh Dallas was sitting off-camera reading the letter to Ginnifer Goodwin. However, the filming crew had no script, so he improvised different versions of the letter by saying things he liked about her.[5]
  • While filming the scene where Snow White tries to escape King George's dungeon, Ginnifer Goodwin got splinters from all the climbing.[4]
  • For the scene where Mary Margaret is hanging from the cliff, the shots from above, with the river, were filmed against a green-screen. The shots from the back were filmed with a stunt double hanging from a real cliff.[5]
  • Fake rain was used for the scene where Mary Margaret releases the dove. The water could not be heated since using heated rain in that kind of weather would create steam, so the rain was very cold.[5]
  • The horse that Josh Dallas rides in the scene where he meets Red Riding Hood is called Adella.[6]

Set Dressing

Costumes Notes

  • When Mary Margaret is at the diner and the Dark Star Pharmacy, she is wearing[25] a Smythe Equestrian Elbow-Patch Blazer[26] over an Equipment Quinn Cuatro Puntos Print Blouse[27] (no longer available).
  • When Mary Margaret is in the forest and at the pet shelter, she is wearing[29] a Blue Cable Knit Sweater from Ralph Lauren[30] (no longer available).
  • When Mary Margaret is sitting at the table in the morning, she is wearing a Knitted Fluffy Lace Bow Top from Topshop [31] (no longer available). When she runs into David later, she is wearing[32] a Classic Angora Beret from Gap[33] (no longer available).
  • As Emma and Mary Margaret are sitting at the loft table at the end of the episode, Emma is wearing a strap around her left wrist.[35] This is a shoelace from Sheriff Graham's boot.[36] Emma keeps his boots, missing one lace, in her office at the Storybrooke Sheriff's Department.[37][38]
    • According to Jennifer Morrison, a common theme that came up in memoirs she read written by people who had been raised in the foster system, was that they held onto small significant objects that they kept with them their whole lives. Graham was extremely significant to Emma, so Jennifer wanted to find something that her character could keep with her in memory of him. The shoelace was something that she and Jamie Dornan came up with together, while chatting about this idea.[38]

Goofs

  • In the recap video, the shots of Prince Charming and Snow White are mirror-inverted versions of the shots from "Snow Falls". Therefore, Charming's scar is on the wrong side of his face.[39]
  • The dove Mary Margaret finds in the woods is not the same one she releases to the bird flock. While the one she finds a darker beak color as well as a distinctly white feather coat with a reddish plume around its neck,[40] the one she sets free is completely powder white with a lightly colored beak.[41]
  • As Regina is watching David and Mary Margaret, Archie Hopper's name is missing from the entrance to the building where his office is located.[42]
