In this episode we analyze episodes 8 and 9 of season 4 and highlight all the themes and hidden easter eggs. Some of us loved this episode, others hated it. Was Emma acting out of character? What’s the deal with Mary Margaret and Regina. Plus, we think we know who wrote the book!
Join Fr. Roderick, Inge Loots, David Handlos and Lisa Jones for analysis and speculation!

Emma’s superpower doesn’t seem to work when she in emotionally involved. Since Emma is more emotionally connected to what is happening these days I don’t think we will see much more of her superpower. Whether she actually has the superpower or was just extra observant before she came to Storybrooke doesn’t matter much to me.
I think the way Emma was acting in this episode was explained in the last episode but it was somewhat subtle. I think when Emma and the Snow Queen were talking in the jail the Snow Queen was able to get under Emma’s skin / mess with her mind, not magically just by what she said. By making Emma question how she fits into her family and her family’s love for her the Snow Queen was able to unsettle Emma and by doing so Emma lost control of her magic. At the end of the episode when the Snow Queen came to see Rumple in his shop Rumple said something to the effet of “As someone who has created many monsters, that was quite a job you did on Emma.”
Also, Robin has been bugging me the last couple of episodes as well and I really liked the scene on the road between Snow and Regina.
