The Snow Queen and Elsa

The Snow Queen and Elsa

I really liked this episode. We find out that Elsa and the Snow Queen met before. In Arendelle, Queen Elsa was informed that Prince Hans (the guy who tried to marry Anna and left her to die in the movie, Frozen) and his brothers were advancing on her kingdom with their army. Elsa was already worried about Anna still missing. Kristoff offered to go and spy but she told him no. He did it anyway and found out that they were planning to get an urn that was in the woods that could trap people with magic. The plan was to trap Elsa and Hans could be king. Elsa agreed to let Kristoff find the urn but she would have to go with him. Once they found it, they were going to destroy it but Elsa saw there was writing on it in a language she didn’t know and she wanted to know if it could tell her more about people like her. Just then, Hans comes in with his people, they take Kristoff hostage, and promise to kill him if she did not give up the urn. Elsa did and Hans opened the urn to pour out what was inside. But, the Snow Queen was inside, she froze Hans, and the other men ran away. Elsa took the Snow Queen to her palace and found out that she was her mother’s sister. The Snow Queen was put in the urn a long time ago. They seemed happy to have found each other.
 
In Storybrooke, the Snow Queen gave Marian an enchanted ice cream cone which was slowly freezing her from the inside out. Everyone of course thought it was Elsa as the Snow Queen intended. Robin Hood went to Regina (ex-girlfriend/the Evil Queen) to help save Marian. Her solution while trying to figure out this curse was to take out Marian’s heart and keep it in one of her boxes. As long as Marian’s heart didn’t freeze she could be saved. Robin revealed that he is still in love with Regina and not Marian but he still feels obligated to stay with her.
 
Regina and Henry (her adopted son/Emma’s real son) started Operation Mongoose to find out who wrote the fairy tale book so maybe that person could write Regina a happy ending. As she talked about last week, being a villain in the book means she could never really be happy.
 
Mary Margaret (Snow White) is busy as the new mayor since she had her new baby and Regina quit. The towns’ people want her to do something about Elsa and her powers. Of course Marian collapse at the meeting as she started to freeze. The mob went out looking for Elsa. After telling Hook to take Elsa, Emma and David went to the woods and found Will Scarlett (ex-Merry man with Robin Hood/the Knave of Hearts in Once Upon A Time in Wonderland). He told them when the power went out he was looking to rob shops. He had gone in the ice cream shop and saw nothing was melted. He took them there as proof and they saw the whole back room was frosted. That is what led them to the woods and finding the Snow Queen.
 
Hook was told to take Elsa to the sheriff’s office to keep her save but instead went to Rumpelstiltskin’s (Mr. Gold) shop. Hook threatened to test to see if the dagger he gave Belle was real. The dagger controls Rumple and he has to obey the owner. He agreed to help them. They gave him a lock of Marian’s frozen hair so he could trace the magic back to the person who cast the spell. It came up as snowflakes which led them to the Snow Queen in the woods. After watching her they decided to go get Emma and David, but the Snow Queen froze Hook’s legs to the ground. She told Elsa that they knew each other from before, but Elsa had no memory. Apparently, her memory was wiped by the Rock Trolls so she could forget that her sister Anna put her in the urn. I had almost forgotten that Elsa spilled out of a container when she first arrived. Of course, Elsa doesn’t believe her. The Snow Queen said everyone turns against people like them, even family (I bet Elsa’s mother put the Snow Queen in that urn). As she was about kill Hook with falling icicles, Emma got there with David (Prince Charming, her father). The Snow Queen called her by name and then said she didn’t know her just heard of her (that’s a lie). Emma used her magic to knock her down and she moved Hook and David out of the way of the falling ice. The Snow Queen disappeared. Emma has a feeling that she knows her but can’t remember. Emma’s magic just comes and goes. She needs to take some time to learn how to use it better.
 
At the end of the episode, the Snow Queen is back in the woods and Rumple is right there. He said he was sorry things didn’t work out the way she wanted. He even warned her if Emma remembered her things would not be good for her. He offered his help and she said she would make a deal if need be. Rumple is always involved and seems to know everyone. It looks like a real fight is coming up. I hope the next episode explains how she knows him.
