Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:If Nerissa's head was glamoured to look like Faith's, the glamour would've worn off eventually.]]


** Alternatively, in the canon "path," Bigby sent Colin to the Farm.
*** The digital-first comic adaptation of the game does end with Colin being sent to the farm, so I think we can conclude that this was indeed intended as the canon path.

** Maybe Beauty starts getting mad when he won't listen and flies off the handle thinking the two of them are having an affair.
* A significant amount of the game's plot revolves around Bigby going around finding answers since the girls wearing the ribbons are unable to tell him what they want to say. So... why doesn't Bigby just hand them a pencil and paper and have them write down what they want to tell him?

* How about Beast beginning to transform when he finds Bigby and Beauty together? His transformation only happens if Beauty is mad at him. This however changes when [[spoiler: Beast replaces Bigby as sheriff]].

Added DiffLines:

*** And Snow still makes him go to the farm even if he does have the money and he's not happy about that.

Added DiffLines:

** The picture in Lawrence's apartment is of [[spoiler: Faith/Donkeyskin]], as they came to Fabletown together and she'd have no reason to leave him before things got bad and she had to resort to hooking.

Added DiffLines:

** If Volume 2 of the comics is any indication, then the enchantment makers are already aware of this. Weyland Smith had a similar curse put on him, and explained that he couldn't physically do anything to undermine his masters. It doesn't just prevent you from talking, it prevents you from acting except in a far more roundabout fashion than what you suggested.

Added DiffLines:

* Does it irritate anyone else that Bigby never once tries to think outside of the box in regards to getting around the 'these lips are sealed' problem? As in, 'I know you can't say anything, but maybe I can ask you some yes or no questions and you can try knocking once on the desk for no and twice for yes.' Or even just asking Nerissa to try to write down what she has to say. Maybe it wouldn't have worked, but no one even ''suggests'' it.

Added DiffLines:

* If [[spoiler:Faith is Nerissa]], who is the couple picture in Lawrence's apartment of?

Added DiffLines:

*** Lawrence overdosed, slit his wrists, has been without food and water and he shot himself in the heart / lungs and [[spoiler: he'll survive if you go there first instead of the Toad's Apartments.]] And his story isn't as popular as everyone else's.


* So, [[spoiler:either the girl at the beginning is Nerissa pretending to be Faith or the girl at the end is Faith pretending to be Nerissa]], but why? There seems to be no real reason for either case beyond "twist ending!" Would either character really have anything to gain from the deception?

** I have three possible theories.
*** [[spoiler: It was a HeroicSacrifice on Nerissa's part to save Faith, not knowing that Nerissa was also in danger. Faith, to help avenge her friend, led Bigby into the case.]]
*** [[spoiler: It was suicide. She couldn't go on with her life and normal suicide would've been too difficult due to how popular her tale was compared to Lawrence. Also, her geas would've made her continue her job as a working girl against her will until someone removed her ribbon. The girls cover for each other and Nerissa has a glamour of a human form since she's a mermaid, right? Well, we already know that you don't need consent from a person to have a glamour based on their appearance so Nerissa took Faith's image and let herself be killed to escape her life of prostitution. The whole 'saving Faith' thing is a side effect.]]
*** [[spoiler: Georgie forgot / didn't know the girls regularly swapped glamours and fucked up the murder.]]


** The comics make it perfectly clear that fable CAN breed, TJ is probably from the Homelands as well and his mother left behind or dead.
