    Lady of the Lake

    Post by Ranna156



    Official ABC Recap & Pre Air info:


    We're back in The Enchanted Forest's past where we left off in the season 1 finale. Prince Charming and Snow White are together at last and determined to overthrow King George and The Evil Queen. But King George has hired a new, mysterious General for his army who people call "Leviathan", and he attacks their encampment. In the chaos of the battle, Snow and Charming are separated and she runs straight into the imposing new General, who reveals himself to be Lancelot, a disgraced Knight of The Round Table. He takes her before King George, who surreptitiously poisons her with a curse that suddenly makes her unable to conceive a child--the same curse that once afflicted his own beloved wife. He releases Snow, but Lancelot is unwilling to continue serving the King after what he's done. He stays with her, determined to make amends, as she travels to meet Charming at the secret cabin where they've hidden his mother.

    A squad of King George's soldiers tracks Prince Charming to the cabin. He valiantly defeats them all, but not before his mother is shot with a poisoned crossbow bolt. Snow White and Lancelot arrive just a moment too late. Desperate, they take Charming's mortally wounded mother to Lake Nostos, hoping its healing waters can save her. During the journey, Charming's mother discovers that Snow White has been cursed, and cheers her when she suggests the waters can probably help her, too. But when they arrive at the lake, they find it dry. It turns out that when Charming killed the Siren that protected the lake, he may have also doomed it. They find only a small shell's-worth of water, not enough to heal both women. Charming's mother insists that Snow take it, but Snow White won't hear of it. Lancelot gives the water to Prince Charming's mother, but it doesn't seem to be enough. As her last request, Snow White and Prince Charming are married by Lancelot, who has them drink from a special cup as part of the ceremony. As the two finish exchanging their vows, Charming's mother dies. Snow White helps her beloved Prince grieve, but discovers that her curse seems to have been lifted. Charming's mother only pretended to drink the water and had Lancelot slip it to Snow White so that one day she could have a child--a baby girl.



    In present, post-Curse Fairy Tale Land, Emma and Mary Margaret (Snow White) are trapped in a hole with Cora, who MM knows is as evil as they come. Cora says she only wants to help and Emma thinks it's worth a shot if it means getting back to Henry. Soon they are let out of their cell to meet the leader of the refugees, who turns out to be none other than Lancelot. Mary Margaret insists she has a way for her and Emma to get back home and convinces Lancelot to let them go. He agrees, but insists that they take Mulan, his finest warrior, as their guide. Unbeknownst to them, Aurora tags along as well, looking for vengeance for Phillip. She still blames Emma and Mary Margaret for bringing the Wraith who took his soul. She attacks Mary Margaret later that night, but this is the awesome warrior Snow White we're talking about here. She overwhelms Sleeping Beauty and begins to talk some sense into her when a gunshot rings out. Emma is there, trying to help, but all she's done is call down every ogre in a 5-mile radius. Sure enough, one attacks and it's Mary Margaret, who still knows her way around a bow and arrow it turns out, who takes the giant creature down, saving her daughter.

    The four women finally arrive at Snow White and Prince Charming's castle, which has seen better days. Emma and Mary Margaret enter the nursery, where baby Emma was sent out of this world and into ours, and they find the magic wardrobe that Geppetto once carved out of the last magical tree in The Enchanted Forest. Suddenly Lancelot appears, saying he followed after he heard about the ogre attack and that he was eager to help Emma get back to Henry. The only problem is, Emma never told Lancelot about Henry. Mary Margaret draws her sword and Cora reveals herself. She had killed the real Lancelot long ago and had been posing as him to control the others. She attacks Mary Margaret and Emma, making it clear that she wants the wardrobe for her own means of reaching Storybrooke and getting a reckoning with her daughter, Regina. To save Mary Margaret and prevent Cora from using the wardrobe, Emma lights it on fire. Mulan and Aurora join the fight and it's enough to scare Cora off for now. Mulan realizes they don't have a leader, and she nominates Mary Margaret. But as the four women depart, with the magic wardrobe burned to ash, Cora reappears and scoops some of the ashes into a vial. She's clearly not done with them.

    In Storybrooke, Henry is eager to help find his mom and Mary Margaret, but David (Prince Charming) wants him to stay safe and go to school. Henry's a bit like his mom, so instead he tracks down Jefferson (aka "The Mad Hatter"). He asks Jefferson some questions and gives him some very good advice about reconnecting with his daughter. Then Henry breaks into Regina's (The Evil Queen) office and steals her keys. He uses them to open her secret vault. He's about to uncover some VERY poisonous vipers when David appears to save him. David realizes he needs to spend some time connecting with his grandson. He buys them some wooden swords and promises to show him some moves. After all, he is the grandson of Prince Charming. And as the two practice their swordplay, District Attorney Spencer (King George) looks on menacingly. It seems that old grudge may have traveled to Storybrooke as well.

    Lady of the Lake Secrets Page

    After a quick recap of some of the highlights of the show and pointing out that there were a lot of 'Mom' moments in this episode, three 'secrets' are listed for our enjoyment:

    When Ruth, Prince Charming's mother, is mortally wounded, Charming suggests that they take her to Lake Nostos and give her some of its magical waters. Fans will remember this as the lake Prince Charming travels to in Episode 113: "What Happened to Frederick". In that episode, he used water from the lake to change Frederick back to a normal man after he had been accidentally turned to gold by King Midas.

    While at the lake, Prince Charming picks up a crown from the dry lakebed. It belonged to the Siren that guarded Lake Nostos. Unfortunately, it seems that when Charming killed her--it was totally self-defense!--the lake dried up.

    Time for another callback! The two-headed Agrabahn Viper that Henry finds in Regina's secret vault is the same venemous snake that The Genie used to kill King Leopold in Episode 111: "Fruit of the Poisonous Tree". No one can say Regina's not an animal lover.

    Finally, a little something for our literary fans. Didn't you guys get enough after all of that Shakespeare last week? Sheesh!

    Those who've read Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem about the Arthurian legend, The Lady of Shalott, may have recognized Lancelot's line "God, in his mercy, lend her grace."

    @obsessed - you were wondering what I thought of the episode...i posted it into the chatbox but i will copy/paste what i wrote there about the episode/earlier discussion after watching it...

    [21:11:33 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : OMG i LOVED LOVED LOVED this episode!
    [21:11:38 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : it was perfect
    [21:12:18 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : so many emotional scenes...it finally felt like a little bit uf a release of all that has been building up since last season!
    [21:12:49 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : i did cry when Ruth died and the scene between Emma and Snow...so beautiful
    [21:13:22 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : ok thoughts - Lancelot wasn't ever seen with Cora...so she easily could have done a disappear/reappear act
    [21:13:47 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Mulan is the new hottest chick in FTL!
    [21:13:49 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : haha
    [21:14:11 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Is that steak Charming is holding in the site photo a chimera?
    [21:14:34 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : i thought i heard a subdued tikka tikka noise (LOST)
    [21:15:15 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Charming seems to have some real skill with a sword for not having been a warrior for very long...he took out trained soldiers single handedly
    [21:15:46 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Ok so obviously King George's round table IS NOT the round table Lancelot came from
    [21:16:05 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : still could end up as the round table when they take back the kingdom...
    [21:16:42 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Snow isn't Guinevierre (sp?) so i don't think Charming is Arthur....still sticking with Richard
    [21:17:04 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Where did SW learn to shoot so well?
    [21:17:34 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : Interesting that David was allowed down in Regina's vault
    [21:26:01 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : LOVED the Jefferson scenes too!
    [21:26:30 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : especially the end when he just walks off with her and doesn't let her go
    [21:26:39 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : so sweet
    [21:26:53 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : ok...i might be just a tad more into mad swan now
    [21:27:11 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : this not seeing August is HARD!!!!
    [22:07:40 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : oh and I looked at the chess set i have...the king is the one with a cross above his head...so i think Rump IS holding a queen...
    [22:08:56 14/10/12] @ Ranna156 : and i was mistaken...the King is the tallest piece with that cross thing...

    I really liked all the bonding in this episode...the mother daughter relationship between SW and Emma and the fatherly role PC is taking with Henry. Its almost like he is getting the son he always wanted! Wink

    Could be. But THEY wouldn't have seen it ... and yet he expected them to know. Eh I'm probably reading too much in I suppose. Doesn't really matter.

    I think Ruth wanted to just enjoy her last moments instead of trying to find something that may or may not be found.

    And are there sea shells in lakes?

    I suppose there could be fresh water crustaceans. I'd Google and tell you but... that would be waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much effort LOL

    That does seem a little unrealistic he'd know where to look...PC doesnt mention anything to him or give him ideas. Question Question Question

    That is my one 'nit-pick' on this episode...otherwise, thought it was AWESOME!!!

    Very Happy I love you

    funny you mention that pier...i think i took photos of that area when i was there...pretty sure that is right there in Steveston. Also I noticed some shots from Gary Point Park! So exciting watching this show and seeing places i recognize now!...anyway given the size of the town maybe Henry was just walking by and saw him...it really is close to 'main' street!

    Yea I think its pretty clear she still expected him to be "of the round table". This kind of makes me question the option of Charming as Arthur. I like the idea of it being his dead twin, but it could have also just been a neighboring kingdom (like Cinderella's for example)

    very true...whatever the relationship between SW & Lancelot is I don't think it is romantic!

    I'm guessing yes. Notice how all the previews so far are Snow/Emma? Maybe we'll get one with PC but they're keeping it very much on the other two. I'm also guessing yes because I think he's Arthur and this is where we meet Lancelot, the title is Lady of the Lake, etc.

    I think u r probably right about arthur being his name...but even if it isn't I think we will find out his name!
