    Had a feeling that Dr. Whale was Dr. Victor Frankenstein, especially after I saw the preview last week for the episode.

    So, I'm guessing in Frankenstein's world there's no magic. As he said at the end of the episode...

    I think no story is safe from the writers....pick a figure, any figure, any mythos and they can run with it.

    Jefferson's hat only goes to realms with magic though.

    I just rewatched the episode, Jefferson did use his hat to transport Dr. Frankenstein. They stated there is no magic in his world. So I'm confused about the hat thing, I had previously thought it would not go to a world without magic.

    Jefferson's hat does only go to worlds with magic. Jefferson even said so in the episode. The logical conclusion is that Dr. Frankenstein's world does have magic in it, just not the kind of magic he needed to make his monster.
    Meh...

    They never said Victor/Whale's world doesn't have magic. Just that he does not use magic

    Perhaps in Victor/Whale's world, science is magic. If Jefferson's hat only goes to worlds with magic, then it's safe to assume that in that world, science is magic. However, it's entirely up to the writers and creators as to how they want to explain that.

    Somehow I don't feel that Victor is a strong character. They shouldn't have written him off, because I doubt he could be used in any other active storyline.

    My wife and I loved this episode. I knew he was Dr. Frankenstein from the outset of this. I love how the writers are using so many characters from so many stories.

    So we get Dr Frankenstein now! What a weird episode! Wonder when Captain Nemo from that same world of 'science' turns up.

    What next??? Darth Vader to give Rumpelstiltskin a run for his money who was using the dark side of the force all along, now that Disney owns that franchise too!

    Did not see Frankenstein coming. I guess there could be vampires and werewolves (besides Red). Maybe even Sherlock Holmes.

    Maybe it is magic, but can only be accessed VIA science.

    Maybe there just isn't a lot of magic in Frankenstein's world. His world could be same one Dracula and The Mummy share.
