I will say this right off the bat, I loved this episode. I loved all the weirdness and the little touches, from the Sheriff checking out Ruby to the Shetland Unicorn, you read that right: A FREAKING SHETLAND UNICORN!
I think what I like best is that a good portion of the actual story is driven by what happens in Fairy Land. There was a good bit of that last week, but this episode put a nice focus on the Evil Witch and her reasons for doing what she did. We’re starting to see that this wasn’t just a case of being driven from the kingdom, but there’s much more behind it.
I really enjoyed the darker aspects of this episode, the Evil Witch wasn’t just a two-dimensional antagonist in this episode, she was the protagonist, and that was a really good thing.
With all that, I think this show might have legs to it, if they can keep up, what I see as, the good work.
