It is about both, now. Since no one has seen this post in a while. Flashbacks about the first week of the curse with Own Flynn as Greg Mendell, confirmed and that at the end, almost. Regina is in Gold's shop and we see "I LOVE YOU MOMMY" that couldve been done by Henry or Owen. But it wouldve been made by Henry as a little boy.. given to Regina by Gold. A little hint on how Gold got Henry. I think Gold had Henry for a while, until he found a way to make the papers finalised and thats when Regina adopted Henry from Golds attorney ways of dealing with children. Someone who lived in Arizona. The same place where Emma went to prison in, after August took Neal's money and gave her their car instead. I guess, when Emma got out and had Henry, she wanted it to be a close adoption for a reason.. and this secret person took Henry to SB, somehow, someone from either Emma/Neal's past who knew exactly that Gold was Rumplestiltskin, or knew that Henry was his grandson.
Probably around the same year, everyone started to fear Gold more than Regina. This person came and went in and out of Storybrooke after giving Henry to Gold and ran away from him. My vote is still on Tinkerbell been this mysterious person, who knew Bae was Rumple's son, knew about Emma been Neal's true love, knew about August, knew about the curse in SB, what if she was the reason why SB froze and that time continued time and time again with the same loop duration and why Regina was fulfilled with bordem. She heard about the events of Owen Flynn's past in SB, Maine.. yet noone had heard about this town, cos it never existed on the map. I still think, Tinkerbell is running the Home Office not the Darling descendants, this is how she might have known about Owen, she might have been the reason why he changed his name to Greg Mendell or something. Nevermind. I'll wait to October. 3 months from now. Come on already.

No. Regina got Henry when he was three weeks old, which is very much the amount of time it would take to transport the newborn from Arizona to Maine and finalize paperwork.
Oh, I shouldve said IMO, bcos thats what I thought. I still wonder if theyre going to back to the W2SB epi, more flashbacks on what really happened to Kurt perhaps. I think, it could be more onto how Graham became Regina's lover after they both dealt with Kurt when Owen escaped SB. But thanks, Utter. I just thought I'd throw out my theory on how Gold had Henry's drawing. But, how did Gold get him so quickly. Someone mustve been invovled after Emma gave Henry away. I still wonder, if Emma secretly named him Peter, after Peter Pan. It'll ALSO be so creepy if she found out her FAV childhood fairytale character was Peter Pan was EVIL. It would makes sense, why Peter Pan wanted Henry and very upsetting for Emma in the process, bcos she joked about going to Neverland in Tallahasse episode w/ Neal. Thanks, Utter.

I was just saying, it could've been possible. Since it was the Tallahasse episode. I thnk, yeah, duh? I'm fogetting the titles already. Um, just thinking, if there was a Peter Pan 300 year ago, who lost his shadow, Id like to think maybe Peter/Wendy never met.. but Bae/Wendy did. So it could also be possible, Emma's favourite could still be Snow White, but also Peter Pan, in a way or whatever. Just. She could've secretly thought about a name for Henry. If Peter Pan never existed after he lost his shadow. Peter is just his shadow, who need Henry to be young again. Who knows, maybe Henry will become the New PP. While the old PP is in flashbacks in 3x01, THOTTB. But, I still could be wrong. But, it would make sense if they made Henry have a dark side, for once, did you see how mad he was at Regina in TEQ epi, (he does have many qualities of PPs characteristics), he doesn't want to grow up, be all alone, he wants to continues his stories, so that everyone believes he is telling the truth) whereas Rumple will try to fix him or might as well, take advantage of his new found power, bcos Henry may have a great essence of magic, one thats more unique/powerful than Emma's, which may explain Rumple's Undoing, bcos it's Henry.. and now it seems PP might also be the boy (or Rufio) who will reunite Rumple with Bae again. So anything is possible. I still can't believe Neal wasn't Peter Pan. Dammit.
