    Loved this episode i've always been a bit in love with Robbie (Carlise) any way this one made me cry..sad!lol...Watched lots of episodes on here and had no probs at all? Hasn't any heard of that old fashioned way of doing things...recording it and watching it at a more convienient time then theres no ads to moan about either!! Or what I do is let the program run through whilst doing jobs then start back at the beginning, it skips the ads cause it thinks youve already watched them...

    I have just watched this episode without any problems. This is the first time I have watched it on-line and only did so because my box for some reason or other missed this episode. I do not know if was just lucky but it was as good as watching it on tv apart from not being able to whizz through the adverts.

    Now I feel bad for Gold/Rumplestiltskin. He's a victim of this as much as everyone else. It's a noteworthy episode, this one - it's the first real time that anyone in Storybrooke has 100% confirmed the existence of the curse (ie. the jail scene.). Poor Maurice, too, getting that beating even though it wasn't in fact him that hurt her. This show is way too awesome.

    Was scrolling down to see what other people thought of another really great episode. I love how they adapt all the classic fairy tales to the existing Storybrook characters and I loved the inclusion of the chipped cup. However, what I found - yet again!- was people bitching about how crap this service is. I have never once had a problem unless I try and have another window/tab open at the same time, so it's simple- I don't. I watched this episode easily, as I'm sure did many other people who don't feel the need to comment, and this suggests that the problem is not with demand five at all otherwise we would all be experiencing it. So chill your beans people, and leave the comments section for discussion of the actual episode content!!!!

    People, you can watch the episodes without buffering.... I read a blog from someone a couple of weeks ago cos I couldn't watch a complete episode.. if you click on the box "report a problem with this video" and submit the encrypted words in the box, I guarantee you'll watch your episode, buffer free! Try it. This programme is soooo good, its such a shame Channel 5 or the powers that be cannot provide a good viewing service!

    This is a terrible service! Well, it isn't even a service!! Week after week this farce occurs. There is no point in putting this series on Demand5 if it isn't going to work. Now 12 weeks into series 1, and still not able to watch. Demand5 we DEMAND you sort this mess out. You are nothing but a laughing stock!

    Right, people are confused so i'll explain it. Belle (not bella) is locked in a mental asylum under the hospital being tortured by Regina {Evil Queen} and Mr Gold {Rumplestiltskin} doesn't know she's there, because the Evil Queen told him she'd died, but she hadn't, she'd been locked away by the Evil Queen. Belle is meant to pop up somewhere between Episode 13 and Episode 17. That's all I know.

    Rumple didn't make a deal.He didn't know what would happen, he was tricked into it and what he wanted was to save his son. That's the deal in the Monkeys paw. When you're dealing with magic, magic always has one answer you don't ask for and that's the one that pays the price. Magic never claims to be fair, it's just there. It's up to the person who wants something to look at how much they want it. Would I sell my soul for anything? I'm not even sure I have one, but even I certainly wouldn't make any bargains that put it on the table. Love RC, so hope he comes good. Only prog I watch

    Rumplestilskin and bella are so cute together but i cant belive that he fought it was all a joke and that the queen put her up to it and then he found out that she loved him (in the fantacy world) and then the queen said that she killed her self the fellt so sad i feel sorry for him.In storybrok she is locked in somthing like a prison but he Rumplestilskin (Mr Gold) doest no shes ther. :(

    My favourite episode so far. Awww bless old Rumple, I just wanted to give him a Cuddle. Little bit of a weird crush now actually, oh and why do they keep calling her Mary-Margaret? Can't they give her a nick-name like real friends do or something? My dad started calling her M&M, so now mum and I call her sweets. Thanks ^-^

    Regina figured out Mr Gold knows about the curse because he also made a deal with her that when he says please she has to do what he asks and when he doesn't want to talk to her ect, in the 'normal world' he always says please to her.

    @carina - the evil queen was the one who set the curse and the one who controls it. Rumplestilskin made a bargain that he would be wealthy and important, but he doesn't like the queen/regina so is still meddling as he did before BTW - how come the advertisement runs fine but the programs are STILL stilted on five on demand. Pleeeaaase can it be fixed. I am sure enough have complained by now but come on ...
