Episode Review: Once Upon A Time Episode 1×11 “Fruit Of The Poisonous Tree”

This week’s episode of Once Upon A Time was phenomenal!  But then again, when hasn’t it been phenomenal?  Starting with this review, I am going to be trying something different. I usually basically post recaps with some opinions thrown in, but this time I’m going to try avoiding the recap heavy format and focus more on sharing my opinions.  Entries may be shorter than normal until I get the hang of it, so bear with me.  Anywho, now that I have that out of the way, click on to read the review!

Press Release: Once Upon A Time Episode 1×13 “What Happened to Frederick?”

Here’s the press release for episode 13 of Once Upon A Time!

 

DAVID AGREES TO TELL KATHRYN ABOUT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH MARY MARGARET AND END HIS LOVELESS MARRIAGE, AND PRINCE CHARMING AIDS ABIGAIL ON A DANGEROUS MISSION TO RECOVER SOMETHING SPECIAL THAT WAS LOST TO HER, ON ABC’S “ONCE UPON A TIME”

Alan Dale (“Lost”) Guest Stars as King George

“What Happened to Frederick” – With their love for each other growing stronger, David finally agrees to tell Kathryn about his relationship with Mary Margaret and put an end to his loveless marriage. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, while runaway groom Prince Charming searches for Snow White, he agrees to aid Abigail on a dangerous mission to recover something precious that was lost to her, on “Once Upon a Time,” SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

“Once Upon a Time” stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold, Lana Parrilla as Evil Queen/Regina, Jared Gilmore as Henry Mills, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David and Raphael Sbarge as Jiminy Cricket/Archie Hopper. 

Guest starring are Anastasia Griffith as Kathryn/Abigail, Meghan Ory as Ruby/Red Riding Hood, Alan Dale as King George, Beverley Elliott as Granny, Eion Bailey as stranger/August W. Booth, Aria Pullman as Siren and Greyston Holt as gym teacher/Frederick.

“What Happened to Frederick” was written by David H. Goodman and directed by Dean White.

I wonder if this is the episode where Mary Margaret and David finally get together, or if Regina will do something to mess that up.  My money is on Regina meddling somehow because it still seems a bit too early for them to get together, I mean if they got together now they would have their happy ending.  So I think it will be stretched out a bit longer, much to the frustration of many viewers, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough!

Promo: Once Upon A Time Episode 1×12 “Skin Deep”

Here is the promo for the next episode of Once Upon A Time, airing on February 12!

 

This is going to be so good.  I do have to admit that I was a bit surprised that they threw in this twist of making Rumpelstiltskin the “Beast” in the tale, but it should be interesting.  I’m curious to see how it plays out and if they can pull it off successfully.  Based on how the season has gone so far, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it will go off without a hitch.  I can’t wait!

The Ratings Are In: Once Upon A Time

The ratings are in for this week’s episode of Once Upon A Time, let’s take a look at them shall we?

Viewers: 10.78 million

18-49 Rating: 3.4

FANTASTIC! In terms of viewers, it was the third most watched show last night.  But in terms of the 18-49 rating, it was the #1 show!  This show is like an unstoppable train, it is a huge ratings grabber and shows no signs of slowing down.  Most networks will be revealing their early renewals in the next few weeks (based on past history, early renewal happens in February) and I think this is the most obvious contender for early renewal by ABC.
