    • Great episode! This season is ON FIRE. Fo real....

      But... Hyde :(

      I really liked him. I wanted him to stay

    • Awesome ep! It showed that Jekyll's serum only takes out evil, not the capacity for evil.

      I don't want Regina to die or kill Emma!

      Lol literally ignored the fact that Jasmine's alias was Shirin the whole time.

      Poor Hyde

    • great episode. I like Mr. Gold new haircut. I put a idea about how they will defeat the EQ on the Other Show episode Discussion. and today's episode I was right. the only way to kill the EQ they have to kill Regina.

    • So, I had a prediction, then I did a second prediction that was partially right, and overshot the rest. Oh well.

      --Hyde was a fantastic character, smart and cool. So, it's Id vs Ego(w/Superego). Should really stop calling it "Dahkness!"

      --Backstory was cool. Mary wanted the "hotstuff" at the time, aka the passionate, strong man to swoop her off her feet. Wasn't obvious that Jekyll killed Mary, but it was pretty obvious that Jekyll had a darkside. I predicted his heart rip, but not that he was so willing with little motivation.

      --Rumple will be going all villain. He's realized that Belle is a lost cause as he ruined it too many times. He's a self-loathing man who keeps putting himself in situation where he will hate himself. Series Villain, guys.

      --No Zelena makes me sad.

      --Rumple and all the powers that be (evil) pulled some surprises.

      --Jasmine was obviously Jasmine, but secret plans with the oracle and was in LoUS. Not evil, just secret for secrety reasons.

      --Henry doesn't need some girlfrined when he has no friends. Henry's just another Regina/EQ waiting to happen...or should I say reverse Jekyll.

    • While I'm glad they resolved Jekyll and Hyde, and thought they did a good twist on the story in flashbacks, I'm a bit sad they killed them off (though it does fit with the source material) because I thought the actors were good. Oh well, onto the Aladdin story I guess. XD

    • Emma's villain as of now: Emma, Rumple, or Regina. Regina's being set up to do so, but it seems all too predictable, but based on how Jekyll and Hyde went....it will be Regina and Emma's hand shakes because she doesn't/can't bring herself to do it. (the way the show is setting it up).

      But that would be too lazy, so next....

    • Why is Henry still a thing? Like does he serve any purpose? You could take out all of his scenes and dialogue past the season 4 finale and it will have no impact at all.

    • You I think "Emma" in the vision is actually Regina under a glamour spell. 

      Maybe she will trick the EQ into killing her because no one wants to do it. That way both would die. It's Regina making the ultimate sacrife, just was she was willing to do it in 2x22. Maybe after she dies, she reunites with Robin in the afterlife, and that's how he will be back.

    • CaptainBeauty seems a lot more natural than CaptainSwan. Personally, I ship Emma with August more. I'm hoping that now the RumBelle ship has seemingly sunk (how many times have I claimed that now, lol) that CaptainBeauty is on the table. As a happy ending for the show, everyone should end up with the other character most compatible with them. Regina/Gold, Emma/August, Hook/Belle, ect.

      I'm a sucker for ships that make sense, sue me :P.

      I'm liking the new sassy Belle.

      Killing Regina off? If they thought the backlash from killing Robin was bad, they have no idea what the backlash from killing Regina would be.

      Liked:

      -Timeline Consistency

      -Humanising Hyde

      -Villainising Jekyll

      -Good Use of Belle

      -Good Use of Dwarves

      -Was nice to see Snow teaching again

      -Consistent Rumple flashback in every Ep 4 of every season lol


      Disliked:

      -I really wanted them to show how Hyde started imprisoning Jekyll in the LoUS, but I guess there's only 40 mins an ep

      -Henry and Violet were there for 2 seconds. Violet literally only kissed Henry on the cheek, but at least she was there.

      -Wanted a bit more of Hyde and Jekyll, but I guess they needed to die to make way for Aladdin


      Overall a good ep, excited to see where they end up in the future

    • Great episode, this season just keeps getting better and better. I finally feel like I'm watching Once Upon a Time again! Let's pretend season 5 did not happend lol.

      - Too bad that Hyde died, I was really shipping him with Regina.

      - Belle and Gold relationship keeps getting worst, but I like that she is standing strong.

      - I like that Belle went all badass and stabbed Jekyl with the seashell!

      - Gold's haircut is horrible, but I can live with that. At least they provided a logical explanation.

      - I'm looking forward for more Jasmine and after this episode I don't think that the oracle girl is Jafar, but I will like to know her motivations.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • OK...so this episode, I have a lot of mixed feelings about.

      I loved the fact we got to explore Jekyll's/Hyde's past, but I despise the fact that they killed them already! It's waaaaaay too soon! We didn't even get to the deep with these two and they kill them...

      The Evil Queen was good, as always. But a bit underused. I can see why tho as the episode focused more on Jekyll/Hyde and Rumbelle.

      Now we have the fact that Regina learned that she needs to kill herself to get rid of the EQ. That's going to be interesting. Death seems like a very important part of this season.

      Rumbelle is definetly the part I struggle the most about. See...it was fine for Rumple to protect Belle, but really...they all did it wrong. First of all, Rumple just locked her there. Now that's just rude. Then Belle started being such a jerk to Rumple like, jeez, he's doing his best to protect you! He's a jerk, yes, but at least he cares about you! Oh and that last speech at the end...just rude. Rumple was too harsh on her and she was a b*tch to him. Sorry for the language, but that was just awful.

      Finally, we have Snow and Jasmine. Well that part was the most well-done part of the episode. It was interesting that we got to discover Jasmine, but really, Snow didn't ask what her name was or what? I mean...the final moment is that her name is Jasmine...Something I saw coming miles away. At least I liked the interaction they got, it was decent.

      So overall, an episode that I got mostly disappointed of, but it still had it's moments. So it wasn't bad.

    • So whose children do those other children belong to? Besides Violet of course. With the exception of babies and Paige, Jefferson's daughter from Season 1, this was the first time we saw many children about Henry's age.

      After tonight, it seems to indicate that they must kill Regina to kill the Evil Queen. But it got me to wonder, which one is the Original and which one is the doppelganger? Many would think Regina is the Original and therefore must be kill in order to kill the Evil Queen. But I think it maybe the Evil Queen. Regina was the Evil Queen before she became the good Regina we know now. I know Regina used the serum to rid of the Evil Queen, but I think this is the case where the doppelganger trying to get rid of the Original, opposite of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. So that may be a loophole. They kill the Evil Queen, but find a way to keep her doppelganger good Regina.

      Regina is the original because she couldn't kill the EQ. Otherwise, both would have died.

    • sad to see Jekyll (especially Hyde) go, but it suits the overall story more,

      they covered the Strange Case really well with twists, just hope that it will be a bit more obvious that Jekyll wants to be Hyde

      yeah The genie lamp possibly traveled to land of US, as in there jafar's story cant play out, then returned to storybrook

      i think next ep Jafar will still be in flashback/oracle is Jafar and her staff is Aladin

    • Wow, another really good episode. If they keep this up, it will be almost S1 level (or maybe just S2) good. However it wasn't without it's flaws.

      Liked

      • The whole twist on Jekyll being the villain instead of Hyde was a really interesting twist. I didn't really expect them to go that direction but I was defiantly shocked.
      • The flashback was very interesting. Not completely faithful to the source material (I'm willing to take falling out of a window over clubbing to death) but still really great. I actually didn't think they'd go the sympathetic route with Hyde and make it work.
      • Snow's scenes at the school were really good. I'm not sure how relevant it's going to be in the future or just a fun side plot but either way, it's cool.

      Disliked

      • Honestly, how did they not think about killing Jekyll would solve their problems? I'm pretty sure Regina said she knew how Hyde's story ends A.K.A Jekyll kills himself to kill both of them. I mean I know Zelena didn't melt with water but least they referenced that earlier on. So why is it a big shock?
      • Rumbelle just needs to die. I am so sick of them going back and fourth between loving each other and breaking-up. If Belle goes back to Rumple after this because of their baby, she needs an appointment with Hopper ASAP because this is beyond toxic and really sick of the writers to keep pairing abuse victims with their abusers.
        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I suspected Jekyll and Hyde's tenure would be finished in this episode. It feels as if they're needing to cram everything they've wanted to do in this season since it's probably the final one.

      The flashbacks were great and I enjoyed having Dr Lydgate there to tie things up with the OUATIW timeline. But how did Rumple hear about Jekyll's experiments? I know, I know... "Your questions are pointless."

      I wish Belle and Rumple were given separate arcs. They need a break. A very long break. Also, is it just me or did Flashback!Rumple look more repulsive than usual? It could have been due to the cut from Gold's flashy new haircut to Rumple's matted untamed mess, I suppose.

      Ah yes, and then there's Jasmine and Oracle. I've never heard the name Shirin before - is it a reference to something I'm not aware of? A Middle-Eastern folklore maybe?...from the looks of the promo for next episode, we may be getting a passing reference to Ali Baba. Also, is it just me or is the Oracle just terrible? Maybe it's the actress, but I feel annoyed whenever she's onscreen. The way she ended her sentence with "Jasmine" felt very forced. I hope Jafar shows up and throws her across the room again. Anyway, I'm looking forward to next episode!

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Loved nearly everything about this ep!!

      - Interesting origin for "Jekyde", and they incorporated Dr. Lydgate in a good way. Really glad that they showed Victorian London again from ONCE Wonderland.

      - Loved the twist when Jekyll was actually the 'monster'.

      - Belle/Rumple plot was captivating and found myself interested in their relationship again. But I think Rumple's given up trying to change his ways for Belle for good (or at least until the season finale :P)

      - The deaths of Jekyll and Hyde was really well played out (and Belle was a freaking badass) however I would have liked it to play out a bit later in the season, so we'd have a bit more from the wonderful actors that are Hank Harris and Sam Witwer.

      - Really liked the Snow/Jasmine storyline and I love to see Snow happy.

      - Emma was quite useless in the episode, but I'm sure she'll have a central ep soon.

      - Evil Queen knocking out the dwarves was hilarious.

      - Guessing Jafar is the Oracle and is working with Jasmine to find Aladdin in order to finally kill him (as I'm sure he failed beforehand)

      Best episode in a long time!

      There have always been children, and we saw them throughout season 1 in the school. They were all victims of Regina's curse, like everyone else.

    • If Jafar turns out to be the Oracle, then we need a good explanation as to how he managed to escape from the genies curse.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Loved the episode.

      First, to respond about the children. Aside from Paige, we also had Hansel and Gretel that we met in season one. and there were other children at the school at the time. Those were victims of Regina's original Curse.  Snow's curse brought a few more, most likely, and Violet is a leftover from Killian's Curse. As for the new ones, Snow specifically mentioned that there were new students brought over from the LoUS (like Tom Sawyer, who we breifly saw, and I'm hoping to see more of in a later episode).  I'll be interested to see what kind of trouble Tom gets Henry into.

      Ok, back to the episode at hand. First, the backstory for Jekyll and Hyde was well done, and I liked the twist that Jekyll was the villain to be wary of. Hyde was dark, but Jekyll was darker. And they did a good job explaining the relationship between Rumple and J&H, and why they might have been interested in Belle as far back as the s5 Finale. Hyde's whole intention was to have Rumple watch while the story played out, which was Jekyll killing Rumples "twu luv" as revenge for what happend to Mary Lydgate and Rumples part in it.

      Snow teaching again is an interesting side plot, and having Jasmine, excuse me Shirin, as a teacher's aide is an interesting twist. Although I think by the end of the episode Snow had figured out that Shirin is the princess in her story, even if she has not yet learned that it is in fact Jasmine. Aside from Jasmine and Aladdin, I see a possible adventure in store for Jasmine and Snow in the future (possibly something related to helping Aladdin and Emma).

      I liked how they got Robert's new haircut into the show, and I'll agree with the EQ that the new cut is an improvement. I laughed when Regina remarked how it brought out Rumple's eyes, since that was also the EQ's first comment.  I appreciated the hint that the EQ and Regina are more alike than they are different.

      And Belle is finally getting to grow. She actually stabbed Jekyll as soon as she realized he was a danger, and she stood her ground firmly with Rumple. and has more than a little sass in the process. It's about time that princess stood up.

      Killian is also turning out to be quite the hero. First, leaving Belle the JR with a direct line to him in case of trouble (which he somehow got the message when Belle used the 'Phone' to stab Jekyll), and then showing up and defending Belle from Jekyll. Nice to see Killian actually growing apart from being Emma's doe-eyed puppy dog.  Rumple owes Killian big time for defending Belle and their son.

      And while I am disappointed to see J&H depart, I am not surprised, and really there was not much more that they could provide in terms of plot movement. They set the ball rolling, now it needs to grow naturally. 

      On the downside, no Zelena this episode. and very little Emma.

      But overall, another strong episode, and I'm likeing where Season 6 is going.

    • What a nice episode. 

      I enjoyed Jasmine and Snow's interaction and the end was great. 

      I loved the twist in Jekyll and Hyde and my,my, does Sam Witwer looked cute in the flashbacks. Their death was also nicely done. Mary's death was also nicely done. 

      I love Hook and Belle's friendship. And it's about time Belle showed some growth. I suppose when she shouted Killian's name right before the coral was smashed, he really did hear her. 

      Rumple's hair is also nice. Evil Queen and Regina's remark about it was good too. 

      Another great episode. Does anyone else feel that this season is a celebration of what ONCE is? It feels like they truly went back to the format of Season 1 and I'm loving every bit of it.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • This episode was so great! The Jekyll and Hyde twist was a very classic Once twist, and I loved the inclusion of Mary Reilly because that's another very classic Once twist.

      Hook was very cool in this episode, I don't think he actually interacted with Emma in the entire episode. He only mentioned her once even. It's also neat that even though the protection spell was apparently only able to stop Belle and Hyde, he still stayed with her for some time after he originally intended to leave.

      I totally predicted how the EQ has to die (well, kind of. There are only three ways it could have gone; the way it did go with a "dominant" half that must die to kill the other half, they must both die at the exact same time like in modern multiplayer Super Mario games, or both halves are invincible until they are combined back into each other.) I loved Jekyll and Hyde but I knew they would be killed because that's the only way to figure out how to kill the Evil Queen, and also they couldn't have Hyde loose in Storybrooke (of course, knowing the twist now, that's not actually a problem lol)

      And I also like the confirmation that the "darkness" removed from Jekyll and Regina isn't actually their physical darkness. I've been saying that for awhile.

      Belle was really awesome too. She made use of what was around her to defend herself until she ran out of any reasonable weapon (including, at one point, trying to make Jekyll guilty for attacking a pregnant woman :P I liked that)

      I'm liking Platonic!SwanQueen this season. It was okay in Season 5 but we never really got to see that relationship play out because the Dark Swan never really became the problem.

      The Dwarves being involved was nice, but honestly did they think that the co-stars could successfully protect anyone?

      Overall, I am very happy with how this season is going, like most people here. ^.^

    • Reviewers brought some wonderful magic things back to mind.

      1. How did Jekyll get on the ship? Protection spell that keeps Hyde out and Hyde = Jekyll, thus Jekyll should not be able to get on the boat.

      EQ went through Regina's protection spell of blood magic, because she's her, but they conveniently forgot this (or writers don't read previous episodes?)

      2. The Serum that Rumple wanted to get rid of his love for Belle would have got rid of his love for Bae. So......they forgot he had a son, right? I know, new writer, but clearly someone approved this. Don't get me started on Rumple not knowing a thing about sciency forumla and just presto, a wave of magic and it's perfect! I've given up on Once's magic system because it's legit "Whatever the plot demands". Magic proved itself op when Rumple pretty much steamrolled everyone and everything that they had to have Rumple to let Hyde just grab his dagger?!!!!!!!!! What?!!!!

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Loved the episode. All the points I was going to make have all been done for me. I have no critisms and have plenty of likes. 

      My only question is does Belle still work in the library? Or is she unemployed now she doesn't work in Gold's shop and was that only part time? Its just the fact that she apparantly had no where to live after her break up but if she was still a librarian she still had the appartment that came with the job. I mean surely that would be more comfortable then the Jolly Roger? 

      Anyway, still a good episode and I can not wait to see how the season is going to play out, especially with the shock deaths of Jekyll and Hyde. I did expect them to have stayed a bit longer. Im also liking the fact they are bringing in the Aladdin story slowly and not just ramming it down our throats like some previous arcs. :) 

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Interesting question about Bell and the Library. I'm not sure. but I can imagine that with the Clock Tower (that is conveniently right above the library) being the FOCAL POINT OF MAGIC in Storybrooke, combined with Belles distaste of the dark arts, make the library loft a lot less appealing for Belle.

      Besides, Killian is not going to be bunking on the Jolly Roger for a while (at least, not until his first argument with Emma and she boots him to the doghouse), so why not let a friend stay there. And I have to say I am liking that Belle is interacting with someone other than Rumple.

      Another side. People have been questioning the fact that Rumple put up a protection spell to keep Belle in and keep Hyde out, and yet Jekyll was able to enter the boat. I personally don't find any real issue with this. Hyde and Jekyll are (or I should say were) clearly 2 separate entities at this point. they had 2 bodies, not one. And the protect spell was not cast as blood magic, so it would not act the same for both Hyde and Jekyll. Rumple cast the spell to keep Hyde out, and keep him out it did. It worked just like it was designed to work.

    • I love this episode! However, it confused me a little. Why is there a need for Hyde to bring all the LUS characters into Storybrooke if he's really not that bad and just want to take revenge against Jekyll? Why does he need to get Storybrooke from Rumple?

      He was the bad guy. He, as we all saw in 6.01, wanted to take over Storybrooke and it would be much easy to do it if he lets them tear themselves apart.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Just because he wasn't the murderer doesn't mean he's not evil :P He is still Jekyll's darkness, it just so happens that Jekyll has some more darkness in him.

      I would say that the reason Hyde brought everyone to Storybrooke was to let them kill the Storybrookians as Hyde sits back and laughs at all the chaos. Every character we've seen so far has had a reason to hate someone (except Jasmine and the Oracle): the Count was being forced to murder Snow and Charming, Lady Tremaine was angry at Cinderella, and Jekyll was still mad at Rumple.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • One thing to remember is that both Hyde and Jekyll have reason to hate Rumple . Jekyll hates Rumple because he helped finish the original serum that allowed Hyde to appear in the first place, which ultimately led to Mary falling in love with Hyde (Jekyll's dark side) rather than Jekyll (which could have happened if Jekyll had embraced his Darkness and learned to control it rather than suppressing it).  Hyde is ticked at Rumple after being discarded when the experiment failed (from Rumple's perspective). They both wanted revenge.

      And there seems to be something about the LoUS where stories are on hold, meaning that even getting revenge can not happen there. Hyde wanted to finish his story (and Jekyll's story) by killing Rumple's love, exacting revenge for the wrong done to them. And Hyde probably presumed that Rumple being the Dark One meant that he had control of All of Storybrooke, and so wresting control of Storybrooke by bringing other people from the LoUS would be another blow against Rumple (this last is my headcanon, nothing supports that viewpoint of Hyde). 

      One thought that I had from the episode (and really from the entirety of the Jekyll/Hyde story going back to the S5 finale) is that since the EQ is to Regina what Hyde was to Jekyll, could that taser-like weapon be used to incapacitate the EQ and capture her? And will the writers actually think of this?

    • Oh, how to stop the EQ? I wonder......use the taser, plop the cuff on and more dirigible cuffs. Or Rumple can remember that he has Pandora's box.

    • EQ is harder to find than Hyde because she seems to teleport anywhere, so the chances of them getting to her with a plan that can distract her for long enough to get her tased and cuffed are pretty slim. Plus, she probably has a protection spell.

      Rumple won't Box her, or let anyone else box her, for the same reason he wouldn't stab her with the serum.

      True, but I see that re-integrating them is the best way. Besides, EQ isn't causing any real trouble.

    • That's not entirely true. She stole the Count's heart, which resulted in his death. She also put Ashley in danger by teleporting Emma, Henry, and Hook off her trail, and Belle by freeing Hyde. She isn't doing anything directly because she knows that as soon as she does she'll be a huge target for, ya know, tasers and cuffs. But she's caused a lot of indirect problems.

      Re-integrating them will probably be what happens, but first, they have to figure out a way to do that, and right now their only knowledgeable scientist is dead.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I think reintegration will be simple. I think it will boil down to the fact that Regina needs to accept the EQ side of herself, rather than fighting against her.  This plays into the foreshadowing we saw in the conversation between Rumple and Regina in NYC. And by accepting the the darkness and reintegrating it with her, Regina will be able to maintain control over it, winning the war that is raging inside of her (something the Dragon hinted at).

      However, reintegration of the EQ was not a part of Strange Case. the only thing that we really know for sure is that in order to kill the EQ, Regina must die. (and I don't see that happening anytime soon).

    • Really enjoyed this episode! Sorry if I've just missed this, but what land was Jekyll originally from, where they have this carbon copy of Victorian London but with magic?

      I liked the twist on the Jekyll and Hyde case, but now I'm seriously confused - what does this serum do? Does it only separate what the drinker sees as their good and bad side, regardless of what parts of them really are good and bad? If so I'm happy enough with that I suppose. I love the part about being unable to kill your doppelganger without killing yourself, and now I'm wondering if Regina will just find a way to merge herself with the EQ again. If this has already been discussed I'm sorry, I haven't read the other posts here yet.

      Thank God they've introduced Jasmine. She's one of my favourite Disney princesses and it's about time she got here. Did anyone else predict who she was the minute she appeared?

      Rumple's hair change gave me a little bit of a heart attack but I'm steadily getting used to it. I'm glad Belle is baring her teeth against him now, and that he has refrained from doing the nasty with EQ. I like the idea of Belle living on the Jolly Roger once Hook is moved out - after all, she's always craved adventure and not had quite enough - or at least not as much as the other main characters. Plus sleeping on a boat is SO comfortable.

      Shame we didn't get much EQ in this episode but I suppose that's to make up for our slight surplus of Evil Queen Epic Music Moments from last week. On the other hand, I'm glad David was barely in this one, except to get thrown 20 feet through the air. More of that please. If we can dispense with his father backstory in future episodes too that would be lovely, thanks.

      I liked how Killian got some action in this, albeit 2 seconds of duelling Jekyll's dusty ass before accidentally shoving that weak little misogynist into a spike. So first Regina and the Count, and now Killian has accidentally killed one, kind of two, but still technically one, person. At this rate, half the people from the LUS will have their stories cut short while Emma and Co say "whoops, just tripped and accidentally shoved this sword into Dorian Gray".

      I didn't miss Grumpy/Leroy and was sad to see him today. I never really liked him. After most of the dwarves have been cursed by the town line, I think it's his turn by now to spare us some of his mediocre acting and 13-year-old-girl-like attitude.

    • Jekyll is from Victorian England, same world that Alice is from if you've seen OUaT in Wonderland. Dr. Lydgate, Mary's father, is a big nod to to Wonderland. :)

      I regrettably haven't seen OUAT in Wonderland but I really need to.

      If it's the real Victorian England i.e. the Land Without Magic - then why and how was Rumple there when he was about to spend nearly 200 years preparing the Dark Curse so he could find Baelfire?

      But if he was there after he met Belle, then it would have been in the 20th century, after the Victorian era.

    • It's a separate world from the Land Without Magic. Think of it as a world forever in the Victorian time period, like Cruella's 1920s England home.

      Yep, that. We even see Alice's Victorian England concurrently with present day Storybrooke. The writers have also clarified on multiple occasions that Baelfire went to the Land Without Magic's Victorian England.

      OK thank God for that. I love how OUAT creates entire worlds dedicated to specific time periods just to get around the whole Land Without Magic thing - which turned out to be incorrect anyway lol.

      So I'm assuming Rumple went to this place using the Hatter's hat. If so it would have been a great excuse to see him again! Shame that we didn't at least see him stood in the background as Rumple did the talking.

      I should hope so too. I thought it was obvious he went to the LWM since that was where he wanted to go when he used the bean.

      People (including myself) knew Jasmine was coming since we got a casting call for "Sherenezade" before this season started filming. So yes, we knew. XD

    • She appeared in the promos for 6x03 and 6x04 wearing her Jasmine costume, so yeah it was kind of predictable

      They did not specify HOW Rumple got there. But I think Rumple is perfectly capable of travelling between magical realms on his own (We've seen him in the LWC and now in VE). And while we saw Jefferson involved with Frankenstein, Jefferson was not going to the LWC with Rumple, he was transporting Frankenstein. Rumple's only problem on travelling is from a realm with Magic to a Realm without magic. (at least that is what I gather from what's been shown). Neverland was a special case, since it also involved Emma and others making the trip, and There are probably limits on even the Dark One's powers.

      As for sighting Jefferson, I think a lot of fans would like that. But gook luck getting Sebastian to film a scene. He is very busy being Bucky Barnes, and there is some hope that he will get his own movie at some point in the Marvel Avengers movie series (which would mean even less time for filming tv show scenes).

      OK then, did anyone else predict who didn't see the casting call and just watched the show? XD

    • way back in season one, when Rumple is questioning the Blue Fairy after he didn't follow Baelfire into the bean portal, he mentions (among other things) a "realm jumper". So while Jefferson's hat seems to be unique, there definitely seem to be other realm jumpers out there.

      I will forever miss Sebastian Stan though.


      I really like the actress playing Jasmine so far. She seems perfect :D

      When Jekyll pushes Mary out the window he is clearly wearing boxer shorts.  However, when he collapses to the ground before becoming Hyde he is suddenly wearing pants.

      Hahaha yeah I checked it, very good one. You should add this to the episode page under the "Goofs" section.

    • I enjoyed seeing Dr. Lygate return this season. That's three wonderland characters that appeared in the regular show. Will Scarlet, Jafar, and now him.

      I really enjoyed the bond between Snow and Jasmine. And I enjoyed how Jasmine reacted as though she knew her when she said her name. Just like how Robin Hood behaved in front of her by saying at last we meet or how Little John pointed out that they all knew Regina was her enemy by asking why is she with her. I always enjoy how people are inspired by Snow's heroic repuation and somehow knew her or gave up their freedom and lives just to save her because they believed her innocent (which by the way they are right). And Maid Marian did that for her.
