Poor August. He went through alot and appears to have failed for the moment, though I think he got through to Emma. She is starting to belief it, so she is trying to run away from all of it. I doubt though that the Town will let her leave. I know that she was outside Storybrook with August, but the last time she was leaving she was stopped by a Wolf where there are supposedly none. Just saying. :)

Regina of course should go to Hell. Charming will never fall for her, I hope. I loved how Mary Margaret told her that she felt truly sorry for her. There was so much emotion going on in that scene that it proofs that they chose the right actresses for the Job. I cant wait to see what the Season Finale has in store for us at this point.

I'm with you on that, I don't think she can leave town now. She set things in motion, so she's part of the mechanism of it all now. If I'm wrong, then my second choice is Henry saying something that makes a difference.

I totally CALLED that August was.......

PINOCHIO

I just knew it!!!


This episode was awesome and momentarily I wanted to hit Emma upside the head for being so stubborn... but she has to come to terms with this on her own and August set her down the path where I think Henry will push her the rest of the way.

If there is not a big change by the finale. Then I will be more annoyed with Emma then I am with Henry. This is starting to get silly now. At this point. Even if Mr. Gold came clean & told Emme everything he knows about the curse & how & why he did it. She would still not believe it. Even if Mr. Gold showed her some proof. She would still not believe it

I think tomstone is right, She is starting to belief it, so she is trying to run away from all of it.

I think that is why she has become rather hyper and mistrustful of just about everyone lately. It follows that someone from the "real world" would think all these people are insane or that she herself is going insane. In our real world what would you think of these people? I would think there's something wrong with them for sure. Regina and Mr.Gold are playing a really scary game in any world, magical or not.

So now she wants to run away with Henry to keep him and herself safe. Go back to what she knows. She's afraid because she is feeling it, she's on the verge of falling into it.

Oh my gosh! I didn't see that coming. Way to go leading us down one path in the previous episode only to solve it for us in the next!

Very interesting

EDIT:

I think she is in the process of believing, she was reading the book after meeting the Hatter, but she hasn't given in to it.

Now I have a question. Rumpel was around when Geppetto's parents died, then fast-forward and Geppetto is in his 40s to 50s.

Since Rumpel's kid, Bae, left before all that, then how old would Bae be now? 40 or 50 or so? Around Geppetto's age, right? Unless there's more than one world without magic.

The Hatter said there was more then one world without magic I believe. But come in this is TV. There is no way in hell that Bae is not in the real world. He will show up eventually for the drama for TV sake. In fact I can almost bet $10. That the person on the other side of the phone that August was talking to was Bae. How else would August know so much about Rumpel & know how to talk like Bae ? He is working with & in contact with the real Bae

It just occurred to me, that August really might be the Writer of the Book. There is a mistake going on at the moment and I dont know if it is on purpose.

In the first Episode we saw a Picture from a page in the Book that showed Baby Emma in her blanket on the side of the road, but thats not what really happened. August made that part up to hide the truth. So the only way that could be in the book is that he wrote it or that he has a connection to its writer.

In the first Episode, I think that was an image of her in her crib. I don't think it showed the road at all. I just rewatched the first episode on Hulu and I didn't get that impression at all.

Well I loved the episode I never expected August to be Pinocchio not in a 1000 years, that was a nice twist. I wonder if the curse is lifted do they simply return whence they came for or does their world and ours somehow merge for all time? Let's keep in mind that Rumpel created the curse to get to his son but he never wanted to abandon his powers either.

Well, recall right now. Rumpel has no power. He just made a deal with Regina to have her do anything he asks with "please" and for him to have wealth in this cursed life.

The curse did move them from one world to another...so maybe breaking it will send them back (Emma and August too?) Or maybe they will just remember their lives, but could then leave Storybrooke once knowing who they are.

Part of the curse was that he would have no power but the series has shown us that although he gave the curse to Regina, he did not created it for her but to find and get his son back, i suspect that if the curse is lifted he will be anything but powerless.

The curse doesn't take away his powers, the fact that our world has no magic is the reason he is powerless in the magical sense.

It is unknown if the curse will take them back to FTL. Also given that Storybrooke is a small town, it is unknown how many people were taken and if anybody was left in FTL.

If that were the case the curse should have never worked and people would have remembered who they were the moment they came into our world so our world may not have magic but magic does work in it and if magic can work then so can magical beings. I think that when the curse lifts at least the Take all happiness away and Regina in power part , Rumpel will probably get his powers back right on this realm. In the preview of the season finale we hear some saying "Magic is coming back" I think Rumpel intended to turn magic loose on a world that has none or is hidden either way it will be interesting to see how it goes if the show is renewed for a 2nd season.

In the preview of the season finale

I don't want to hear or read about the season finale, this is about what happens in this episode.

Yes magic works in this world and I agree we don't really know everything the curse is responsible for.

We also don't know how magic works in FTL. Is is a renewable source of magic or is there a finite amount?

We know in Storybrooke that magic has had an effect on the residents. But we don't know if the curse's magic is actively making them not remember or purely was a once-only mind-wipe.

We also know that Rumpel made a deal with Regina for her to do anything he asks with a "please", but is that magic or just her keeping her word?

There is still too many unanswered questions

Just reading the comments a few people think Emma was on the path of enlightenment. I don't think so given she ran off with Henry at the end and gave no signs to August that she believed. Since she is the star of the show she'll come around sooner or later.

I know if I was thrust into this, i would think some of them (unfortunately even Henry) were mad, and try to get out of there till i was proven wrong.
