I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Once Upon A Time, ‘Tiny’.
Mr Gold takes Emma and Henry out of town to look for his son. Henry is excited, but Gold seems anxious. At the airport, Gold frustratedly punches a cubicle, and cuts his hand. He tries to heal it with magic, but fails. Emma notices this on the plane. Also, Snow and Charming take Hook to his ship, where it’s revealed that Cora’s weapon is Anton the giant (from Tallahasee). He attacks Charming, thinking he’s James (his twin).
The flashbacks show Anton the giant visiting the human world, despite being told not to by his brothers (Giants were thought to be extinct). His curiosity leads him to befriend James and a woman named Jaqueline (known as Jack), who betray him and launch an attack on the giants, stealing treasure. Before the last giant dies (and kills jack at the same time), he gives Anton a sprig to grow more magic beans. Anton then hides away to protect the beans.
In present day, Regina makes Anton full sized and sets him to attack Charming, but after the magic wears off and he shrinks to regular size, he falls down a hole. Charming rescues him, proving to Anton that he isn’t James. Anton befriends the locals, and decides to grow new magic beans (even though he knows that’s what Cora wants). He gets his won dwarven pick axe, labelling him ‘Tiny’.
It was a very enjoyable episode, and can’t wait for more next week.
Thanks for reading.
