So is it possible that in fact the thing that Snow loves most would be one of her children rather than Charming? Charming used Snow’s love for their child to convince her to cast the sacrifice him which would seem to indicated that Snow would find it harder to live without her child than her husband.
Well, in order for the dark curse to work, Snow had to be willing to sacrifice the thing she loved most, who in this case, was Charming, meaning she couldn’t love anyone more. Yet, Snow killed her own husband to get to Emma to save this baby. That seems to contradict itself a bit. It was a poorly executed decision.
And yes, this action does make Snow and David look like the world’s biggest hypocrites for telling off Neal when he wanted to find a way back to Emma and Henry. I guess Snow and David now have more in common with Rumple and Regina than they’d ever have believed possible. They all had a hand in casting a dark curse. Snow took a walk in Regina’s and Rumple’s shoes. The villains are the heroes and the heroes are villains. It all comes full circle.[adrotate group="5"]

While it was beautifully acted and I can see the poetry, it doesn’t change the fact that they are both screwed if anyone ever tries to hurt the either one of them."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"April 28, 2014 at 1:09 am #264464
Not only are Snow and David’s heart literally intwined but they have to worry about all magic coming with a price. And right now, Zelena wants their baby. I hope they don’t lose this baby as payment for casting that dark curse.

In what world would Snow ever agree to murder her husband, even in a desperate attempt to save her unborn baby?
Speaking of that, it was pretty irresponsible of Snow to risk not only her life, but also the life of her unborn child. Like, I get that she had supreme faith, and that’s great, but that WAS NOT a guarantee that it would work. If it turned out Snow couldn’t actually survive with only half a heart in her chest, that wasn’t just her own life she was gambling with, it was also the baby’s. Just another element to add to how OOC this whole mess was for Snow.April 28, 2014 at 6:47 am #264491OnyxParticipant
I’m conflicted about this. Their sacrifice is beautiful, but I’m not sure I’m okay with darkening Snow’s, now divided, heart. They’re sorta making the villains lighter and the heroes darker. What’s up with that this season?

I was not surprised at this twist – it’s something I had suspected for a while this season. But the way it was done did surprise me. I did not think Snow would go through with it.
EXCELLENT character development in the last few episodes between Regina and Snow. Regina’s emotion as she watched Snow crumble Charming’s heart…. le sigh. Fantastic.
The cop out so that Charming wasn’t dead? Eh. Bit too easy and ridiculous. But you can’t have your Prince Charming dropping dead now.April 28, 2014 at 7:48 am #264502PheeParticipant
Their sacrifice is beautiful
What sacrifice, though? The sacrifice was supposed to be Charming’s life, but Snow found a way to circumvent that. And they got to be reunited with Emma and Henry, so they’ve actually got a reward out of this so far, as opposed to paying a price. So Snow hasn’t paid a price for casting that Curse yet. Which by rights should mean that there’s a price coming. Will that be the baby being taken, or worse? If they save the baby, (which you know they will because they’re not gonna sacrifice a baby on this show), then we’re back at Snow not having paid a price for casting the Curse. If they just let her get away with it, ignoring one of the show’s key mantras, then that will be crap. Charming dying like he should have would also suck, but Charming walking around when he shouldn’t be is like Neal walking around when he shouldn’t have been, and we saw how that ended up. And if Charming dies now, will Snow die too because their hearts are each half of a whole, and if half your heart dies, you’re pretty screwed? So would the price for having avoided the price be BOTH of them dying?
But of course they won’t kill off both Snow and Charming. IMO the solution is to go back in time to undo the fact that they cast the Curse, so they no longer have a price to pay.April 28, 2014 at 8:18 am #264507RumplesGirlKeymaster
@Phee brings up a good point. All magic comes with a price, and the price of casting the dark curse is that you loose the thing you love most. But Snow didn’t, in the end. Is there another price that has to be paid."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"April 28, 2014 at 9:37 am #264547ComfaeParticipant
Snow will have to pay a HUGE price for casting the curse, because :
1) It’s a curse. Dark magic. And magic ALWAYS comes with a price.
2) She definitely (at least partially) broke the laws of magic by bringing Charming back to life. To quote the Nyx, “You’ve let your desires override the fates”

Also, why on earth doesn’t Snow have a big old hole in her heart that nothing else can fill? Regina couldn’t fill the void in her life for 28 years as a direct consequence of casting the first dark curse. How is it that Snow can remain so open to love, hope, faith, and family after she cast that same dark curse? Regina murdered her father. Snow murdered her husband. It’s probably going to come back to some loophole like Regina killed her dad for revenge whereas Snow killed David, who willingly sacrificed his life, for the sake of saving their baby and getting back to Emma. But it still feels like another glaring double standard whereby Snow White’s heart remains pure, and she gets to keep her prince. Yet, all magic comes with a price, so it must be paid somehow.
