Once Upon a Time 3-14 Preview: The Tower

Once 3-14

Once Upon a Time has cast themselves a bit of controversy this week when they cast Alexandra Metz as Rapunzelle. People were upset by the fact that they didn’t cast a blonde in the part. I’m going to come out and say it, that’s just silly. As long as she does a great job with the part, what does her hair color matter? There are so many versions of the character that it’s hard to get attached to any particulars of the characters. (Of course, I’m not up to date on my fairy tales. Maybe I am missing something and her blonde hair is like Snow White’s black hair. Even so, I’m not too hung up about it.)

How does Rapunzelle enter our story? In the Enchanted Forest of the last year, David is going to stumble across her locked away in her tower. And he’s going to have to help her overcome fears to get her out of the tower.

Meanwhile, in Storybrooke, our heroes (which includes Regina!) are going to start looking for the Wicked Witch of the West now that they know who has cursed them. But since they still don’t have any memories, they don’t know she is Mary Margaret’s new friend Zelena. And I hope we’ll learn more about Zelena’s prisoner. (And I am very sorry about spoiling that reveal last week. I will be more careful in the future.)

Yep, it’s looking to be another jam packed episode of Once Upon a Time. And I’ll be breaking it down on Monday over at Carstairs Considers.

    I think its fine that she’s black, but in the fairy tale her hair is supposed to be “like gold”. However, once upon a time changes a lot of details so I don’t see why it’s a huge deal.

    Don’t people who get upset about things have more important things to get upset about? It the storyline is good and the acting is good, what else matters? We have known since the first season that this would be adaptations of the Disney and classic fairytales and people still get bothered by this or because Ariel’s too old or her hair isn’t red enough or some nonsense. Just enjoy the show or push the button on your remote. It’s pretty simple.
