'Once Upon a Time' recap: The Woods Are Lovely, Dark, And Deep

They really do have miles to go before they sleep at this point. Dark and twisted miles, down that dank and nasty Troll Road.

She swept in and stole a pouch, (while Blondie sat in terror, completely useless) and even managed to deck Charming before galloping off into the sunset with the president's rubies safely in tow. "Wherever you are, I will find you!" Charming shouted after her. She looked back at him with a sweet knowing smile that could only mean, "You better!" Read More...
