['Once Upon a Time' - 'The Price of Gold']
Hot on the glass heels of last week's excellent Snow/Charming (Snarming?) episode, 'Once Upon a Time' offered yet another compelling entry this week, this one courtesy of Cinderella.
As with Snow White and Prince Charming's unique backstory, the writers chose to mine new territory with the character instead of retreading the same old rags-to-riches tale we're already well acquainted with. It was no fairy godmother that sent Cindy to the ball this time around, but a malevolent Rumplestiltskin, who wanted something in return for his "generosity" -- nothing important, just Cinderella's firstborn child.
(Snow and Charming apparently got off relatively easily, since all they had to give Rumple was their baby's name.)
