Tensions were high last night on ABC's Fairytale Foibles when Humpty made the decision to not only climb the Wall, but to go it alone, despite previous protestations from Mrs Humpty and just about every sane citizen in Eggsville.
What - or who - finally forced Humpty (a heretofore classic acrophobic), onto that wall in the dead of night, and is he really dead?
More to the point, what are Wiley Fox's plans for Humpty's house and its hidden stash of gold beneath the floorboards, now that the town's big bad egg is officially on ice?
Let's recap the events of last night's episode.

Bo Peep Loses Her Sheep and More…? to Wiley Fox
There’s no denying the chemistry between Bo Peep and Wiley Fox, as last night’s trending #BoFox Twitter hashtag attests. This has been a relationship two seasons in the making, and for many fans last night’s episode proved definitively which side the Shepherdess is on.
However the revelation that Wiley has imprisoned Bo Peep’s sheep will surely cause some debate among the fandom. How much does Bo know about the true whereabouts of her sheep? Does she actually have feelings for Wiley, or is she simply playing the good shepherdess until such time as she can make contact with the Woodsman again? (Yes, that really was him in the promos for next week’s episode. It looks like he didn’t die in that fire in Granny’s cabin after all.)
And if the truth about those missing sheep comes out, will it even make any difference to the love struck Bo? Is she about to lose more than her heart to Wiley, or will the Woodsman finally help her see the wood for the trees? There are a whole lot of fans hoping the answer to that one is no.
Meanwhile, we can’t help but wonder how Mrs Humpty will react to the news of her husband’s fall. Keeping Humpty in line has been her sole preoccupation this season. Without that distraction, might she fall back to her old ways? And if she does, it won’t be just Wiley who finds himself in her line of fire.
The promos for next week’s episode hint at a funeral, the arrival of the King’s Horsemen, a surprise revelation from Mrs Humpty and … a softer side to Wiley?
