He told her that if he couldn’t keep Charming away from her, he would curse her so she could never have children. The news becomes even more heartbreaking when Snow meets Charming’s mother, who tells her that it’s always been Charming’s dream to fall in true love, get married, and have children.

Even Mrs. Charming’s magical necklace seems to prove that the curse has worked. When she tells Snow that the water in the Lake can probably break the curse, our heart fell when we saw that the lake was gone. Bone dry.

How will the Charmings change Snow’s fate?
