We never found out about Emma's tattoo.
Questions that may never be answered: "Really, what did you enjoy so much about Tallahassee?"

OK can someone help me out here. I swear I've watched every episode but I'm still alittle lost...(haha no pun intended)..
-Where was it discussed/mentioned that Hook and Rumple and a few others are like 200+ years old? Somehow this went right over my head. I've rewatched a good bit of season 2 but I'm not clear if that's where this info is coming from. Is it simply the Neverland connection?

It was tossed around outside the show a bunch before this but Neal Cassidy in 2x15 "The Queen is Dead" finally just comes out and says "This world wasn't exactly my first stop. If it had been, I'd be a couple hundred years old by now."

Did we ever find out how the hell August knew who Neal was? Even in the event that he had heard from someone that the Dark One might have a son wandering around our world, it seems a big stretch to be able to ID someone you've never met in a world where there are billions of people. Especially since adult Neal looks so little like Baelfire.

August wasn't just able to find Bae, he also knew all about the dagger. Young Bae accidentally told Hook about it, but I don't see Neal telling August (if he did, he's an even bigger idiot than I first took him for), so some have speculated that the Blue Fairy (who may have faked losing her memories during the curse), told August all about her old pal Rumple's weaknesses. August even outright says it, although some took if for a joke.
Mr. Gold: How about my other question? Who told you about me and the knife?
August: A little fairy.
Also, remember that Regina vaguely recognized August when he came to town. I highly doubt it was because of his non-existent resemblance to Ginger Pinocchio, who she might have seen in passing while threatening rooms full of Snow and Charming's peasants.
An awesome crack!theory is that August came to Storybrooke at some point pre-show, met up with the Blue Fairy, got the Rumple downlow and information about Bae's current identity, and was seen at some point by Regina. Possibly when delivering baby Henry to her as this essay speculates (warning: not very August-friendly), which would neatly tie up the plothole of how Henry got to a town that's invisible to non-fairytale characters. Only problem is he would have to do it without meeting Gold, who set up the adoption in the first place while still cursed, and not knowing he was brokering the sale of his own grandson.
-Where was it discussed/mentioned that Hook and Rumple and a few others are like 200+ years old?
It was first hinted that Rumple was older than he looked when Jiminy meets him in "That Still Small Voice." Gepetto is a young boy in that episode but Rumple looked the same as he does now, so we knew he was at least 100 years old. There were other hints such as multiple ogre wars being mentioned. As Aliasscape says, it was outright confirmed by Neal's line about being centuries old and also the fact that Bae landed in Victorian era London and not the 1970s, as he would have done if his timeline was straightforward.

Adam Horowitz confirmed via twitter that the Blue Fairy did not have her memories during the Curse:

Why did Regina not inherit the throne of her father's country? Did Prince Henry never become king?

He had brothers. Cora must not have killed them after all.

Henry was a younger brother. At the time of his and Cora's marriage, I believe he was fifth in line for the throne, and the gap probably got larger as more children were born.

Didn't realize. Thanks. It seems like Cora would have taken care of it that way.

I wonder if we will ever find out when Princess Ava turned "good" since she went out of her way to trip someone for no reason when she was a teenager.

True. Young Snow was like that, too, remember? And it was Queen Ava herself who scolded her for abusing the help because "I thought I raised you better than that."
It's just a normal part of the growing-up process.

I always think it's interesting how both Young Snow White and young Eva are thought to be so terrible for being rude kids. Kids are rude. Teens are rude. They have very little thought about how their decisions impact others. They don't think very far ahead.
Everyday I'm thankful I'm not the same person I was when I was 12. Or 17. Or even 21. No one who sees me today would ever guess I was a kid who threw full meltdown tantrums until age 8. (I put dents in walls.) My mother loves to tell people when they're in the midst of such things with their 4 year old and wishing the kid had "outgrown that by now".

So, we're in the second half of season 3.
Where has Hook been sleeping?
He doesn't have The Jolly Roger anymore.
He evidently has not been taking lodgings at Granny's.
Does he just curl up in a park somewhere? Break into some random yacht every night and go up and about before anybody notices? Did Regina give Tinkerbell her own apartment, and Hook sleeps on the sofa?
You'd think the royals would care a little more!
