'Once Upon a Time,' Season 1, Episode 3, 'Snow Falls': TV Recap.This episode gives us the backstory of Snow White and Prince Charming (well, up to a point—we still don’t find out just what Snow did to make Evil Queen want her dead, though she admits she did do something). In Storybrooke, Maine it’s all about Charming and Snow who know themselves as John Doe, coma patient, and Mary Margaret, saintly schoolteacher, as John Doe comes out of his coma and escapes the hospital. There isn’t much "spot the fairytale," but there are some pretty terrific gnarly trolls. We’ll learn Snow is a True Disney Heroine (as in late 20th Century Disney), because she’s all plucky and tom-boyish. In fact, she’s posing as a highway-woman. It’s still not entirely clear whether Regina knows she’s the Evil Queen or not.
