    It seemed all too convenient. Small world that it was that easy.
    Plus the fact that he was not only Henry's father, but Rumple's son. Makes it seem that Emma didn't have many choices in life, it was magically fated that all this came together. But then again, that is Fairy Tale writing.

    Don't forget Rumpel used magic to pinpoint where his son was in the world. As for having Emma and him meet and give birth to Henry. Well, it's not magic. Sure the Seer saw the future, but that just meant she saw it was going to happen.

    It's like viewing a movie, no matter how much you rewatch it, it will remain the same. It's not magic as magic doesn't exist in our world. So it was merely stating that their choices meant they were going to meet.

    For instance, the choices I made in life caused me to move out of the state I grew up in and live just two blocks away from a girl I would meet 11 months after I moved in that apartment. That girl would become my girlfriend 13 months after I moved to that location.

    There was no outside force, just the choices we made (and the choices the people around us made) meant we were going to meet. We couldn't see the future, but once it passed we could see the tiny moments where our choices put us on the path where we were to cross.

    I do think in terms of story-telling there is going to be a larger destiny for Emma than just breaking the curse. Recall Rumpel's actions caused Jimney to become a cricket when Gepetto was a child, now Gepetto is an old man. So Rumpel was told of his part in starting the curse decades before it the curse was enacted.

    Rumpel is just as much a pawn as anyone else. These characters and their motivations are placing them on a path we cannot yet see. They are trying to change their circumstances but all their previous choices have placed them on the paths they follow.

    The one exception, Regina. She was on a path of redemption and now that is all gone as she seems to be plotting the detahs of the Snow and Charming family.

    Bae as a child and as an adult are obvioiusly not the same person. The child went through some very difficult experiences when thrown into the non-magical world. He was a teenager who had to adapt to this world and learn how to survive in it. Adult Bae was formed by all that he had experienced so, of course, he's not going to be the same person he was as a child.

    I totally agree. It will be interesting to see where things go with him from here.

    But really, how much magic did he have to deal with before he fell through to our realm?

    Also one thing i have wondered from the get go. Other than Emma being "Born here" and henry, how is it the others have socials, bank accounts etc? They just 'showed up' and as such would have no paperwork to account for them getting anything.
