I liked this installment, probably more in the beginning than in the end. First, I love Mowgli's character in these stories. Mowgli was never terribly compelling to me in the Jungle Book, being everything annoying about animals AND little kids. Also, he had several animals invested in keeping him alive and managed to put himself in deathly peril again. Thankfully, he has matured in the fables stories, and is charming and capable.

Once we find Bigby, the whole thing becomes a little fan-service like for my taste. Then again, sometimes a gal likes a little fan service. The wedding is a mega happy ending, there isn't really anything standing in its way, just sit back and enjoy this "very special installment" of Fables. Also, when Snow White tells Bigby "You've defeated me" I want to punch her in the face. She's be mooning over this guy for years and she choose then to mess with him for the briefest of dramatic tension? Grr...

Still, a good installment. You'll get exactly what you want from it.
