so the dead can live again? That opens up so many options.
Are you referring to Regina's father? I don't believe he was dead. Eating items from Wonderland makes people change sizes. It seems that Henry the First was miniaturized in the box.
There was so much great stuff in this episode. It's so nice to have a capable villain in Regina. In both worlds she's bad-ass and has so much charisma. Yes, I want the good guys to win, and I can't wait to watch Regina squirm, but I'm also fine with having her battle against royal guards in man-eating labyrinths.
So it's now officially confirmed that there are multiple worlds, and "our" world was just one of them. And Jefferson couldn't leave his house for 28 years, yet he was actually aware. Tricky, tricky curse. Time restarting allowed him to leave the house, so it seems he was stuck in some sort of loop, just like everyone else doing a groundhog day. It's nice to have a little bit more exposition on the curse.
It seems like there was something else...oh yeah, Emma's finally coming around! Woo and Hoo. The smile on Henry's face was fantastic. Between his conversation with August and his realization this week, I'm glad they've made him smart enough to realize that Emma's just been humoring him. And I can't wait to see Emma's next encounter with Regina. Sure, she's not completely sold yet, but just the suspicion in her mind that she's dealing with the Evil Queen is great.
