Once Upon A Time Episode 1.13 Recap: What Happened to Frederick
Clearly, the latest captivating news in Storybrooke is the affair between Mary Margaret and David. Emma stuns Mary Margaret a bit when she tells her that she basically knows what’s going on. I honestly think anyone could have figured it out, but we’ll give Mary Margaret the benefit of the doubt here. No one is supposed to know .Mary Margaret reassures Emma (and even herself) by telling her that David is planning to tell Kathryn, his wife, everything that’s happened. However, little does Mary Margaret know, David tells the truth, but not the whole truth. He tells Kathryn that something isn’t connecting between them and that she needs a fresh start, just not with him.
The infamous Stranger in town, who is also a writer, is hanging and binding pages of the Once Upon A Time book (the same book that Henry once had). From this, I think my theory is confirmed that he is indeed the writer of that book. However, I never disregard this fact that this is Storybrooke and anything can happen.
Regina has a gift of a video game for Henry because she loves him so much. (I think if Regina really loved him, she would let him see Emma, but hey, I’m just a viewer.) Kathryn interrupts up their “endearing” conversation by showing up with tears running down her cheeks. She informs Regina that David is leaving her, but Regina has some news of her own that she thought Kathryn already knew: that David and Mary Margaret have been having an affair. And of course, she has photos to prove it.
Meanwhile, the love birds are having a phone conversation where David, again, doesn’t tell Mary Margaret the whole truth about what he actually did and didn’t tell his wife. Suddenly, Kathryn barges into the school building and slaps Mary Margaret across the face. (As much as I love Mary Margaret, she kind of deserved that.) Kathryn yells at her right in the middle of the school hallway where everyone can hear and informs Mary Margaret that David didn’t tell her about their affair.
Riding up on his motorcycle, the Stranger appears at the Diner ready to follow through with his drink deal with Emma (he owes her a drink). At first, she’s hestiant, but eventually Emma hops on the back of the motorcycle. (Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought twice.) As if this Stranger wasn’t strange enough, he takes Emma to an actual watering hole for drinks. But apparently, if anything in the entire world is magical, it’s water. And this specific wishing well holds water with magic properties that promises “something lost will be returned to you.”
Mary Margaret returns to her car to find the word TRAMP stamped, or rather painted, on it and to see David scrubbing the letters off. She tells him how disappointed she is that he didn’t tell Kathryn about their affair. Basically, he lied to both women and because of this, Mary Margaret tells David that what “[they] have isn’t love, but destructive and has to stop.” (Although this entire situation is completely wrong, my heart was slowly breaking at this point.)
However, Kathryn shocks us all when she tells Regina that what Mary Margaret and David have is real and that they’re in love. Unsure that she’s ever really been in love herself, Kathryn is eager to continue with her plans to move to Boston — alone.
The Once Upon A Time book is returned to its rightful owner, Henry. Courtesy of Emma, of course. At this point, Regina can see her plan slowly dwindling. But have no fear, the Evil Queen… I mean, Regina, always has a plan. She steals the letter that Kathryn leaves for David and catches it on fire so there’s no evidence. If viewers watch closely, when she opens the drawer where she hid the letter, there lies a can of red spray paint. This leads everyone to believe that Regina painted the hateful remark on Mary Margaret’s car, and this does not surprise me a bit. Kathryn packs her belongings and gets into her car , ready to head to Boston. Because no one can ever leave the town of Storybrooke, it’s clear that she’s not going very far. At the close of the episode, Kathryn’s car is found empty with the air bags out, making it appear that she may have been in an accident.
Abigail tries to help James reunite with Snow White, while James tries to reunite her with her true love, Frederick. Previously, Abigail’s carriage had been ambushed and Frederick died trying to save her father’s life. The only hope of bringing her true love in golden armor back is by defeating the creature that drowns anyone who approaches the magical lake.
First, James must give an offering to the guardian of the lake in order to ask for the creature’s mercy. It turns out that the dangerous creature is a siren. Since this siren can turn into anything James wishes, of course, she turns into Snow White. They share a passionate kiss, but he’s not fooled by its lies and deception. However, she strangles Prince Charming and he sinks to the bottom where his foot becomes wrapped around seaweed. He’s stuck, but James cleverly deceives the siren and stabs her to death while she tries to finish him off.
Like we all knew he would, James succeeds and brings back water from the lake, which is needed to revive Frederick. The only payment he wants in return is for Kathryn to walk down the aisle with someone she belongs with. Kathryn warns him that King George will hunt him down now that the faith of combining the two kingdoms has been destroyed. However, Prince Charming is only worried about one thing: finding Snow White.
Questions, Comments, and Concerns…
- Where is Kathryn? Will someone be blamed for her disappearance?
- Are David and Mary Margaret meant to be together?
- Does Regina have something else up her sleeve?
- Will Emma have another “date” with this infamous writer?
- What will Regina do when she finds out Henry now has the book again?
- Will Prince Charming find Snow White? (I think we all know the answer to this one.)
