Top 7 Moments From Once Upon A Time's "The Miller's Daughter"
So much happened during this past Sunday’s episode of Once Upon A Time, I don’t even know where to begin. I laughed. I cried. I lived. I died. It was a true emotional rollercoaster. Check out the supersized Top 7 Moments (because I couldn’t pick just 5) from OUAT’s “The Miller’s Daughter”.
Snow White and the Candle
Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and David (Josh Dallas) helped Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Neal (Michael Raymond-James) return to Rumpel’s pawnshop in once piece. Rumpel ordered Emma, Neal and David to prepare for battle, because he knew Cora (Barbara Hershey) and Regina (Lana Parrilla) were on their way. He asked Snow to stay behind and get him a warmer blanket before joining the others.
When Snow opened the cabinet door to retrieve the blanket, she found the black and white candle of life and death from her past. Rumpel informed Snow the candle was the only way to save him from dying. A terrified Snow asked Rumpel what made him think she would use the candle to save him, when she couldn’t even do it to save her own mother. Rumpel replied she was all grown up now, and they have similar interests in this scenario. Rumpel teased if Snow didn’t use the candle, all her loved ones would die.
Rumpel informed Snow that Cora’s heart was not in her body. If Snow cursed Cora’s heart with the candle, and put it back in her body, Cora would die. In response to Rumpel’s instructions, Snow suggested another plan. She would keep Cora’s heart and force her to do the right thing.Then, Rumpel and his magic would die. Rumpel fired back that he would hate to see the look on Henry’s (Jared S. Gilmore) face when he finds out his grandmother let his grandfather die.
A determined Snow White ended up in Regina’s heart vault. She found Cora’s heart, and hesitated for a bit. Then, Snow took a few deep breaths and lit the candle over Cora’s heart. She whispered Cora’s name over the heart and blew the candle out. Has Snow White’s heart turned black as coal?
