* The intended SequelHook becomes this, when you realize when the series takes place. The movie closes with Virginia narrating, "almost immediately our lives were interrupted, but that's another story." It sounds like she's talking about another fantasy adventure (which was obviously the original intention). But "Tenth Kingdom" was made in, and takes place in, the year 2000. In New York. With the World Trade Center visible on original cover art. [[DeathOfTheAuthor Forgoing the original intent of the writers,]] Virginia may actually be referring to a [[September11/TooSoon major tragic event that struck New York the following year, that interrupted everyone's lives and changed things to come.]]

** One explanation for how a magic mirror [[ContrivedCoincidence just happened to be]] in the basement of the Snow White Memorial Prison: [[BigBad the]] [[WickedStepmother Evil]] [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] mentions to fake!Wendell that Snow White's EvilStepmother had five castles, and a prison guard mentions that the stuff in the basement of the SWMP was there from when ''before'' it was a prison. It's possible that the SWMP had been one of the Queen's castles, and that it was refurbished into a prison after her banishment, which would explain the mirror's presence: ''it was there all along.''

** Unlikely. Virginia was in a state of shock at the end, so she didn't get it, [[spoiler: but eventually they would have realized that Wolf was the one who faked the poison, regardless or whether or not he survived the battle. So either way, he's remembered as a hero.]]

* Either Fridge Brilliance or Foreshadowing... but the moment shortly after arriving at the prison when Wendell calls the Queen the most dangerous and evil woman alive and Tony responds with 'sounds like my mother in law.' Seems like a funny throw away comment on first viewing... but is more meaningful when you realize that he's talking about the Queen's Mother

* FridgeHorror: Near the end of the series, [[spoiler: Virginia finally realizes she's in love with Wolf and they make love in the woods. This is revealed in the final scenes to get her pregnant. But before the very end, he pretends to betray her, only revealing himself to be still on her side during a battle that could easily have gotten him killed. What if Wolf had gotten himself killed without ever being able to tell her that he was still on Virginia's side? Then she would be pregnant with the child of the man who betrayed her.]]

*** Also, Wolf's interest in food. Ever offered a dog a table scrap? They go nuts for human food.

** In the beginning of the series, Virginia says all she wants is to find a decent man who is interested in food so she can open her own restaurant. Wolf is ''beyond'' interested in food.
