On-Screen Notes

  • Hook describes the battle between Jack and the giants as the "final battle". However, neither battles have any correlation to each other. ("Tallahassee")
  • The Black Fairy says that when she finally wins the Final Battle, she will have unchecked power and be able to break the very laws of magic. She even manipulates Mr. Gold by saying that she can bring Baelfire back from the dead. But it is not known how much of this is true, as she never won the battle. ("The Final Battle Part 2")

Props Notes

Light was born and Darkness followed⋮
And then the war began⋮ For eternities
the two battled⋮ Clashing in a sea of
endless war, their emissaries raged
in perfect balance⋮ Light versus Dark⋮
Good versus Evil⋮ With every moon, they
were born, fought and died at each
other's hands⋮ This is how it was.
This is how it was. This is how it
will be for times⋮
But when the Greatest Light awakens
the Final Battle can begin. We will
know this great light as a warrior
born of these heroes and a love.
("The Final Battle Part 2")
