It almost seemed like the dwarfs were slaves to the fairies in this episode. They were told they couldn’t love and that they should just stay and work and they couldn’t go off on their own. I keep wondering if there are good fairies and bad fairies, but maybe the fairies are bad because they use this slave labor to create their fairy dust. The Blue fairy threatened Nova saying she would take Nova’s wings of Grumpy went off with her and so Grumpy stayed.
I just want them to go into all that a bit more. I thought at first that maybe the fairy godmother would be the evil head fairy and the blue fairy would take over when the fairy godmother was killed, but after this episode the blue fairy seemed a little bit evil. Even though this episode was just okay i do want to know more about the fairies and the dwarfs and what is going on with them.March 5, 2012 at 4:48 am #138146weedithParticipant

I’m glad I’m not the only one who found the whole dwarf/slave thing a little disturbing. Now I’m wondering a bit about where this fits in the timeline, because at some point we see Grumpy’s crew seemingly liberated and living in the woods (do I have that right?). Or at least they befriend Snow in the forest and stand guard over her glass coffin in the forest. And at one point Grumpy is in jail with Snow.
Maybe they unionized and rebelled against their fairy oppressors!!March 5, 2012 at 4:55 am #138150
I think at some point the dwarfs have to be liberated because they are on Snow and Charming’s war counsel and like you said they were with Snow at her coffin.
Though i also think that the house that they show Grumpy sneaking out of to go to Nova seemed like the same house that Snow was living in with the dwarfs at the end of Ep 10 when they show that she has taken the potion and lost her memories. That makes me wonder when the liberation takes place and that maybe it happens later on possibly while they are trying to help Snow after she loses her memories or maybe after the glass coffin incident when Snow wakes up the dwarfs decide to go with her and help her. I am not sure. They need to give us more details.March 5, 2012 at 4:58 am #138151weedithParticipant
Unfortunately, I am not as well versed in the earlier episodes because I wasn’t watching it as closely as I am now. I had forgotten about Grumpy and Doc being involved in the discussions about the curse and saving the baby. And actually, wasn’t it Grumpy who sounded the alarm from the top of the castle when the curse-smoke was coming?March 5, 2012 at 5:02 am #138154
Yes, Grumpy was out on the wall of the castle when the curse came and Doc helped Snow while she was giving birth. And they were both part of the discussion at the war counsel. I think i like the idea that the dwarfs go with Snow and Charming once Snow wakes up from being in the glass coffin. Though the Blue fairy is working with Snow and Charming also so that makes me wonder how that works exactly what with the dwarfs leaving the mines that make the dust for the fairies. And in this episode the Blue fairy tries to stop Grumpy from leaving, but in the pilot they are both working with Snow and Charming. Something must have happened there.March 5, 2012 at 5:04 am #138155SnickerdoodleParticipant
So the 8 of them, or 7 leave. They can always hatch a few more eggs. There were a lot there.March 5, 2012 at 5:19 am #138158
I have an idea. Maybe the fairies are taking the dust because they are somehow giving magic to the Evil Queen, but they decide to go work for Snow and not giving magic to the Evil Queen. Remember in Ep 2 when Regina says she is losing power they already don’t respect me or something like that. I have always thought she was just talking about losing her kingdom, but maybe she is somehow losing power because she is no longer getting magic from the fairies. I don’t know if i like that idea, but i am putting it out there.March 5, 2012 at 5:52 pm #138173nightreaderParticipant
Maybe the dwarves just have to work until they reach a certain age and then they’re allowed to do what they want? Since they did have a ridiculous amount of eggs it kind of can’t be that they just hatch them endlessly, there would be too many dwarves :/ I somehow don’t like the idea of the fairies being evil or helping the queen, although the blue fairy definitely didn’t seem to be her usual super good self in this episode.March 6, 2012 at 1:20 am #138213
Maybe the fairies are being forced to work with the queen. I don’t know if i like the idea either, but she could be threatening them somehow. I always think there should be an interesting twist and usually there is not.March 6, 2012 at 1:30 pm #138247obisgirlParticipant
The relationship between the faeries and the dwarfs remind me of the movie, “Metropolis.” It’s a very, very old movie. I saw it awhile back with my dad when it was on Netflix. In the movie, you have this city of tomorrow. The people above frolic and play, totally unaware that there are people underneath the city who make everything work (similar to the dwarfs and the fairies). The fairies even said that they made everything work in fairytale land.
The city in Metropolis is actually a lot like FT. and my boyfriend commented, probably without the fairy dust, FT land would cease to be FT land and probably just turn in Storybrooke.
but yes, the dwarfs are definitely slaves to the faeries, which make me not like them so much anymore. especially, the Blue Fairy. Was it just me or did she seem a bit manipulative when she confronted Dreamy with Bossy?
