Cora sure does love the long con and may get her wish with Snow. I'm all so Dark Snow White. Same hero problem from comic books - just eliminate the bad guy.

I guess that Bae will become

Even more so when the bad guy continues to escape over and over again killing innocent people. (That is mostly comic stuff there) There has to be a point where you just take them out to protect everyone else.

I kept hoping Snow would stab Cora or Regina with the knife.

That's been my guess ever since Hook went to Never Land with the aid of the bean.

Anyone else expect to see in the upcoming

young Cora episode (with Rose McGowan as Cora) that Cora is Snow White's aunt?

Yeah, that was strongly implied when Cora was talking to the dead queen.

I'm just amazed at how much that how much that young actress looks and acts like Ginnifer Goodwin.

I was hoping for the same, even if it did not kill her it would have been something and surprised us a bit.

The logic in this episode baffles me. I know Snow wants to be good and wants to honor her mother's wishes, but wouldn't the "good" thing be to prevent Cora from getting the dagger and controlling the Dark One?

Hasn't she seen Star Trek II? The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few... or the one. Sacrificing her servant would be bad, but giving Cora the dagger would be far far worse. And you could see Cora killing the servant anyway from a mile off.

Dead servant. Cora has the dagger. Well played Snow. *golf clap*

Bailee Madison is a fantastic young actress. I love how well she emulates Ginnifer Goodwin's inflection and facial expressions.

Sometimes peoples idea of good appears to be flawed. Using that candle would have been bad, doing what Cora does to innocent people would be bad, stopping the evil that hurts innocents is good!

How could they have seen Star Trek II, they were too busy literally using dialogue from Episode IV.
