Once Upon a Time: Prince Charming/David
Charming vs. David Nolan
In Once Upon a Time , Prince Charming is as gallant and handsome as ever. As in most fairy tales, he fights off villains with a gleaming sword and saves his true love with a gentle kiss. Similarities quickly end there, as the characters began to vary from the familiar storybook tale of Snow White. The Evil Queen decides to crash their wedding. With a few choice words, "You've made your vows. Now I'll make mine," the cruel queen announces their impending doom.
Soon, all the characters from the magical world of 'happily ever after' are unkowingly transported to a strange world of reality in a small town called Storybrooke. Instead of a prince full of strength and vitality, Charming's alter ego seems weak and helpless: David Nolan is a coma patient that finally awakens and begins to fall in love with Snow White's alter ego, Mary Margaret. The only problem is that he's already married. Mary and David don't let this stop them as their bond continues to grow. They draw closer without knowing that they have already pledged their love to each other in a different life.
Prince Charming makes Snow White swoon with his romantic promise of "I will always find you."
David attempts to do what is right by staying with his wife, Kathryn. Eventually, his feelings win over his conscience, so he pursues Mary Margaret instead.
What will happen to Charming/David in this season? Now that magic has entered Storybrooke, will he once more take on the role of a daring prince? Will the lessons he has learned in both worlds help him to defeat the Evil Queen/Regina? Hopefully, these questions and more will be answered this season.
