Props Notes

  • The table which Rumplestiltskin places the snow globe (where Jacinda and Lucy are trapped) onto is a modified version of the rack,[6] a well-known medieval instrument of torture. This rack has spiked rollers designed to slice into the skin and muscles of the victim's back, an "improvement" made by the French.[7] ("Homecoming")
