This week we get to see a twist on Beauty and the Beast, which is one of my two favorite Disney movies. I was looking forward to this episode, yet remained a tad apprehensive about it because I knew the writers would put a spin on it that differs from what I know and love. Lost’s Emilie de Ravin stars as Belle with Rumpelstiltskin filling the role of the Beast. It’s an interesting twist to cast him in that role, and one that left me wondering how it would play out.
This recap will read a bit differently than my others so just bear with me. The interplay between FTL and Storybrooke wasn’t as prominent as it has been in past episodes so each universe is recapped separately.
