Once Upon a Time 2x10 "The Cricket Game" Review
Spoiler alert: This review contains mild spoilers. Read at your own risk.
OUAT Season 2 Episode 10 is called, "The Cricket Game." The operative word here is "game." Something happens to the fairy tale cricket in this episode. As the title suggests, this is a game - a mere step among many others as orchestrated by the Queen of Hearts.
Big players in this episode are the great frenemies: Emma, Regina and Rumpelstiltskin. One minute they hate each other, the next they're all on one side. The (Evil) Queen of Hearts is scheming for various linked reasons, one of which is to keep a promise to Captain Hook.

As the motivations and grit of the OUAT characters are exposed, more viewers are pulled by the modern day take on the fairy tale classics. The fact that Regina has gained sympathy among many viewers is a feat for the writers. Rumpelstiltskin, Storybrooke's own Lonely Boy, also has fan base of his own.
It could only get better. Henry's dad will show up soon and Emma's world will tumble upside down yet again.
Fans keep the #OUAT Twitterverse going with tweets like the following:
