Top 7 Moments From Once Upon A Time's "The Miller's Daughter"

Cora’s Backstory Part Two

Cora showed the king her newly learned talent, and became engaged to Prince Henry. She and Rumpel continued their affair, and even altered the original deal so Cora would bear Rumpel his own first-born child.
The day before Cora’s wedding to Prince Henry, Rumpel and Cora had a conversation about love. They agreed to run off together, but Cora wanted revenge against King Xavier first. She desired nothing more than to rip his heart out of his chest and crush it.
Cora visited the king to rip his heart out, but he had a few choice words for her instead. He knew she was going to run off with Rumpel, and warned her love was weakness. It is a weakness far too petty for such a strong woman like Cora. The scene soon cut away, and Cora was shown leaving the room with a heart in a box.
Cora met with Rumpel with the heart in tow. Almost immediately, he knew something was amiss with Cora. Cora agreed, and told Rumple she could not go with him. It turns out, she didn’t remove the king’s heart, she removed her own. She felt she had to do it, in order to get what she truly wanted. Rumple became infuriated, but remembered their contract. He could get his revenge by taking her baby. However, The Dark One forgot they altered the contract to state Rumple would get his own first-born child by Cora. Cora married Prince Henry, and the rest is history. Cora-1, Rumpelstiltskin 0.

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.

The point is Snow did not get her hands dirty she went the extra mile and had Regina do it that just was wrong.
