The Fairy Godmother explodes in a cloud of sparkles as Rumplestiltskin kills her and takes her wand. He offers Cinderella the same treatment, but only in exchange for something precious. Cinderella accepts, but when Rumplestiltskin reappears later to claim his prize, her first-born child, she refuses. Instead she collaborates with Snow White and Prince Charming to trap the evil imp. The trap works, but Cinderellaβs Prince mysteriously disappears as a result and Cinderella learns that magic always has its price.
