** You can handwave it the same way you do the seemingly miniscule police force of ''TwinPeaks''. We only see the police that are plot relevant, and everyone else is out of focus.

Because let's face it. When you're combining all storybook stories together, a few questions are going to come up.

** It only denied them because Snow was pregnant. She was already established as 'good', but Emma inside her had potential for evil and thus couldn't pick a side. Snow would have to wait until she'd given birth to Emma before she could get answers from the tree. And the Dark Curse was a time-sensitive problem - so that's why they did the stunt of siphoning Emma's potential for evil into Lily.


Added DiffLines:

** Well to be fair, Snow's reluctance towards killing Regina was based around the fact that she'd spent well over ten years with the latter as her stepmother, and she knew what a victim Regina had been of Cora's meddling. She didn't want to kill Regina in cold blood or execute her when they'd already won. Gideon meanwhile is actively trying to kill, and Snow is slightly prejudiced by the fact that it's her daughter who is his main target (as well as there being outright proof - Emma's vision - that she dies). So she might not be thinking with the most rational mind.


Added DiffLines:

** Don't forget that Maleficent was brought over in her dragon form, and was there sleeping in the mines. So magic was still there to some extent; it's just that Rumple and Regina couldn't use their powers. The curse itself was magic - as it cut off the town from the rest of the world and reset time in a sort of GroundhogDayLoop every day. So logically the Pixie flower could grow, but maybe it was slowed down by the curse, and thus couldn't properly sprout until ten years into it.

[[folder: A Magic Flower During the Time of the Dark Curse?]]
* A bit of FridgeLogic here, but the magic Pixie flower introduced in Awake appears when there is great evil, and manages to appear in Storybrooke when there was no magic in Storybrooke. How exactly does that work? Gold having magic actually makes more sense here; he might have had those magical objects the whole time and simply didn't know that they were magical while the Curse was in effect, but how does a magical flower grow in a land without magic?

** As of early-mid-Season 2, she has her magic powers back, so what jail could hold her if she didn't want to be there? Further, she's as much a prisoner of the town itself as the rest of them, and there are a lot of people around to keep eyes on her.

[[folder: Snow's Behavior in Mother's Little Helper]]
*While Snow has killed before when she has no other choice she has been consistently shown to dislike it and similar to Henry she is firm believer that heroes do not kill. Not only is she against killing she actually knows what Belle and Gold are going through. Snow knows what it is like to be a parent who is seeing their child embrace darkness for seemingly know reason she can fathom. Snow couldn't even bring herself to lawful execute Regina when they finally caught her in the Enchanted Forest and Regina said she never regretted her actions and wished she could hurt everyone more. It makes sense for Emma to think Gideon is too far gone to save and prepare to kill him, but Snow would usually object to this option and suggest they find a third option, even if there wasn't one on the table. Snow went from heroes never kill to threatening Gold with the idea of her and Emma killing Gideon would be mother-daughter bonding.

** The episode A Wondrous Place seems to have shed more light on this. [[spoiler:Jasmine, Aladdin, and Hook find Jafar imprisoned in a lamp that Ariel found, implying that he is the same Jafar from the Wonderland spin off. Jafar even makes mention of settling a score with the people who imprison him, presumably he means Alice and her friends.]]

** This lends some FridgeBrilliance for why Milah took off with Hook in the first place. She can't have another child with Rumple, because it'll be given up to Hades. But with Hook, any children she had presumably wouldn't count.


Added DiffLines:

** The big part of the curse was that Snow and David couldn't be together. In the Storybrooke universe, David was married to Kathryn and comatose, preventing him from being with his true love. Snow's unhappiness is not getting to find love. And she's the type of person who would find things to love in whatever she did.


Added DiffLines:

** The Disney version of the Hydra just had one head. So maybe Herc just got GenreSavvy and dropped a boulder on it before it could grow anymore.


Added DiffLines:

** Zelena does love playing the victim whenever Regina is concerned. And when baby Robin was first born, Regina and Robin would not allow Zelena to even see her at first. So she does have a reason to be defensive.

** The Sultan in Wonderland may have had more then one son, as well. We only see the one prince because he's the heir, but there's nothing that says that the sultan didn't have multiple wives and multiple children. We know he had at least two women he slept with, one being Jafar's mother and the other the Crown Prince's mother, so he may have had multiple children and one of those other children went on to succeed him as Sultan of Agrabah.

* seriously what is her problem? She shows up for like two minutes to complain that Alternate World!Robin has no right to their daughter. Which is MetaphoricallyTrue because they aren't the same person. But she acts like she has the moral high ground here - she's the woman who ought to be separated from her daughter by being locked up somewhere for committing rape by fraud to get pregnant in the first place. She does not have room to pretend that she's a victim here, she's quite the victimizer. What is her problem? And what were the show writers thinking having her show up just to remind everyone that she's a rapist? At least with Regina we aren't getting eternally reminded of all those times when she raped Graham.

** Either they are two different characters(Like the Ursulas) or [[spoiler: the backstory shown in wonderland happened a long time ago, since he killed the sultan-to-be and kidnapped the sultan, is probable another family rose to power, as it is never indicated that Jafar actually became sultan of Agrabah. Another possibility is that the Sultan's wife remarried(she was never mentioned) and that's Jasmine father]]
