This was a revealing episode, and here I thought Drizella was a pushover who would have thought that she was the mastermind behind this curse. I think she made a mistake waking Regina thought be Regina will find a way to free Henry and destroy Drizella after she gets out of this self-loathing state she needs a push. I would give this episode an 8, the series is growing on me the cast is incredible, and I am looking forward to seeing how Regina get out of this one.
