** 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]]

* is he supposed to be the same one from OnceUponATimeInWonderland? Doesn't seem to add up since the Sultan here seems different [[spoiler:from the one that was his father and does this mean he and Jasmine are half-siblings? plus if he shows up in present day he would have to be a genie so I don't know.]]

** As of Season 6, it's not hard to believe a woman who [[spoiler:would give up love for power and become a wicked Black Fairy who steals children would either not see Malcolm's flaws as flaws, or just wouldn't care one way or the other about the kind of man she was leaving Rumple with]]. Although since she mentioned love being involved at all, it can probably be assumed she did love him at some point, and he may not have been the selfish jerk he became later.

* If Hercules' excuse for why he couldn't beat Cerberus the first time was that its three heads were too hard to keep track of...then how on earth did he defeat the Lernean Hydra, his ''second'' task, a monster which started off with NINE heads and, assuming things worked the same as in the original myth, grew more as the fight progressed? Three heads that don't even multiply when they're cut off seems like it would be a step ''down'' in difficulty.

** First, they'd just done something evil (kidnapping Lily and stranding her in another world) in order to remove Emma's potential for evil. If the mere possibility of being evil means you can't get an answer from the tree, then presumably doing an actual evil deed disqualifies you too. Second, they probably felt too guilty to even try and benefit from what they'd done.
* Related question: How does anyone get an answer from the Tree of Wisdom if it denies answers based on the potential for evil? It's a running theme of the show that anyone, no matter how good they are, can potentially become evil.

* Season 1 Regina suffered from a crippling case of EvilCannotComprehendGood, so she might not have realized why Snow would find the experience enjoyable. Remember, this is the woman who was convinced that Snow was a BitchInSheepsClothing who got Daniel killed on purpose so that she could force them to be family. She probably figured that being forced to teach and take care of children would be akin to torture.

Basically, Regina had a very flawed idea of what would actually make Snow suffer.
