** Of the people talking about his cowardice, only Milah knows it was about seeing his son, although she thinks he was using that as an excuse. And she is a big bitch and never really loved him. But by ''ASongOfIceAndFire''/''Series/GameOfThrones'' values, being a craven is worse than just about anything. I'm a fan, and I can just see the characters thinking that. Although they'd expect his wife to be the one encouraging it.

* If Repunzel was locked in a tower, and not dead when her husband remarried, surely she has the original claim to Marcus when she returns? His second marriage would be considered bigamy in our world, so why is Repunzal relegated to being a servant?

[[folder:Why didn't Drizella fight back?]]
* She could've have easily frozen Regina and Zelena in place, even while being choked, and cast the curse...unless she ''deliberately'' didn't fight back [[EvilIsPetty so Regina would have to suffer the pain of casting the curse again.]] Thoughts?

* 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.

** And protection spells seem to be tricky. There's the garden variety where when someone throws magic at you, a shield gets thrown up to deflect it. But that counts on you being ready when the magic is thrown at you. Then there's others like the cloaking spell Belle used in Season 3 - which had the effect of trapping the entire town so that no one could leave.

** When he saw he was turning back into wood, he knew he needed a magical solution. So he went to Hong Kong to see the Dragon.

* What I mean is, why don't any of the myriads of villains use Pinocchio, who due to the Blue Fairy's spell that created him CannotTellALie, to extract valuable information?

**And as for the hearts... it's just the nature of the spell? I mean it's shown that once you've ripped out someone's heart, you can just crush it in your hand to kill someone, so the effect is much the same, with the added benefit that you can now use the heart to control them. Presumably the spell does not allow you to rip someone's heart out lethally, and it's not like Regina or Cora are actually physically strong enough to punch a hole in someone's chest and pull out their heart. They're removing the hearts with magic, not with physical strength, so if the spell doesn't kill the subject by doing it, it won't kill them.
