User Reviews

Another good episode although not a perfect one

Dreamy is another good episode but it does have some flaws. The relationship between the fairy Nova and one of the Dwarfs named Dreamy is nice and it does a great job doing into full detail into how Dreamy later became Grumpy we know and love, but unfortunately, the romance for the two felt unneeded and some of the writing came across as a bit childish.

However, everything else turned out fine. The performances, especially Dreamy and Nova, were really good and I liked how they're connected to Storybrooke as well with Mary Margaret. The dialog is fine, the pacing's very brisk, the music score's still beautiful, and the directing is above average. Also, it does a nice job setting up the next episode in which Mary Margaret is sent to jail. I was like, "I gotta see what happens next." So, overall, another good, albeit not perfect, episode.
