* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: As the pilot episode, there are a number of details here that seem...''odd'' in the context of the rest of the show. Most jarring is Snow's claim that Regina hates her "because I was prettier than her"; as a later episode in the season would reveal, Regina has a [[TearJerker very different motive]] for hating Snow, and Snow most definitely knows it by this point in the timeline. No reason for this particular discrepancy has ever been given.

Added DiffLines:

** In a purely cosmetic detail, the cloak Red wears at the Council of Good is much lighter and thinner than the richer, heavier version later on, and is also missing the embroidery. This is especially noticeable in "Red Handed" and the final two episodes of the season (which shows the Council when it is first forming).

Added DiffLines:

* FreezeFrameBonus: At the Council of Good, Granny can be seen crocheting Emma's baby blanket. Not only does this give her more reason to be there and part of Snow White and Charming's story, it makes it even more resonant that it's her bed-and-breakfast Emma decides to stay at in Storybrooke.

* SanitySlippage: It's terribly clear that confinement hasn't exactly done... anything good... to Rumplestiltskin's sanity.

* GenreSavvy: While he's imprisoned in a cell, Rumple directs all the information to Snow; Charming is too busy insulting him and refusing to make deals - Snow, on the other hand, is making deals and, more importantly, ''getting shit done'' by getting all the information she and Charming and everyone else need, which is ''exactly'' what Rumple wants.
