Once Upon A Time: One Will Die

Once Upon a Time: ABC
March 10, 2013
The ads for this weeks episode are everywhere. "Once Will Die" is the promise, the question is - which one? Last week we were left with Rumpelstiltskin that had been stabbed by Captain Hook. Here they highlight the Evil Queen (Regina), Mr. Gould (Rumpelstiltskin), the Queen of Hearts (Cora), Prince Charming, Snow White, and Emma. If I were to bet, my money would be on Cora. The Queen of Hearts is also Regina's (the Evil Queens) mother. It has helped us to understand Regina's back story as to why she is so wicked. However, she keeps teetering - is she good or is she bad? Does she have what it takes to be just and righteous? The one thing that keeps her anchored toward good is Henry, who is her adopted son. Emma is the biological mother to Henry. Both Regina and Emma have had a natural plight because of Henry and the situation.
Cora, or the Queen of Hearts, has the wicked urge to become 'The Dark One' (which is Rumpelstiltskin's power). She is manipulating Regina (her daughter) to believe if she (Cora) has all this power that she can finally have Henry. They achieved one step closer last week when they obtained Rumpelstiltskin's dagger (that will kill him so Cora can absorb his powers). Cora being 'The Dark One' would scare me more than Mr. Gould having the power.
Something that keeps popping up that I wish they would clear up. If Emma is Prince Charming and Snow Whites daughter, then is she Emma Charming or Emma Snow? I would love to see her embrace her 'fairy tale' background and become this awesome Disney princess warrior or something. I also look forward to seeing Henry's progression, considering he is a prince too. Rumpelstiltskin is Henry's grandfather and as much as he can be bad, I think he does good too (in his own way). I really enjoy his character and would be really sad if he dies.
Until next time or the next... dream
