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?

    I love the twists and turns in this show.

    Snow cursing Cora’s heart and getting Regina to put it back into Cora saved Rumple. That is going to restart her feud with Snow all over again. Enter Rumple’s new apprentice (Emma) who (I’m guessing) will be needing his help learning dark magic to save Snow.

    Loved this episode best of the season so far I thought what Snow did was justified because Cora killed her mother and Regina killed her father and I happy that it’s going back to Regina and Snow because I love their scenes together better then the scenes with Regina and Emma and I hope Snow tells Regina if you want me come and get me I know some people didn’t like what Snow did tricking Regina into killing her mother but at least Snow try stop it and shown regret and remorse and to me Regina and Cora killed a lot of people and I have never seen either one of them to ever shown regret or remorse for what they did.

    I get we are supposed to view Snow’s actions as crossing over to the dark side and doing something supremely evil but I just don’t see it.
    We have seen Neil, Emma & Charming all with their swords out (not a euphemism) preparing to fight her, are you telling me none of them intended to use those swords to kill her if they were given a chance?
    I get Snow White is supposed to be good and pure but really all she did was kill a bad guy who would has been causing her pain since childhood, that pretty much anyone else was willing to kill if they got the chance.
