    So it seems Emma is meant to get the ball rolling for breaking the curse, but seems Rump’s is indicating more that she will be there to start & fight in the ‘final battle’. At this stage I think the actual breaking of the curse will be someone else’s actions rather than Emma’s per say (she’s the instigator & will get them to the point where they can do what they have to do, but its their actions not Emma’s that actually break the curse) if that makes sense.

    Yes, that’s what I’ve been saying all along! In the 2nd episode Rumpel also tells Regina that Snow’s child is the key, but never actually says she’ll be the one breaking the curse.

    9. Will Emma Swan ever have a Fairytale counterpart?

    -Maybe her just being Charming/SW’s kid is her counterpart: In a show full of characters that presumingly have counterparts, maybe she is the exception. Just as she is exceptions in SB, being the only one that can ‘change things’ and save if not aide in saving FTL.

    10. Is Emma Swan’s ability to tell when people are lying a mystical power?

    -I believe it is. Possibly she was given this and maybe other powers we don’t yet know to aide in her fight against Regina or Mr. Gold or whoever else.

    11. Will Emma Swan ever develop mystical powers?

    -As I said the question 10, I think she will due to the magic used to transport her. Maybe those responsible gave her some extra power juice to ensure her success

    Hence that key ring of skeleton keys is symbolic of what Emma is to the curse. The skeleton keys just open doors and allows the person to walk in. Emma triggers past memories of FTL in others (ie. Graham, possibly David or Kathryn) then when everyone remembers collectively they will all fight the final battle. I do not believe Regina is the real enemy. I think it is Gold/ Rumple or someone they have not revealed yet.

    I agree with this theory too! She’s the only one with the power to change the status quo of SB. It doesn’t necessarily mean she’s going to be the one who breaks the curse, but wherever is needed in order of it to happen, will only be possible with/because of Emma. I imagine there’s going to be a big battle between the pro-curse and the against-curse, and latter on, back in FTL, a huge battle between good/evil, whoever they are (because I’m not sure that the end of the curse will mean the solve of all their problems…).

    Im beginning to wonder if FTL was indeed wiped out by the curse (I hope not!!!!) & that we’ll see the final battle gear up in the final for S2 then S3 will probably be how they all cope living in our world & trying to build lives without magic (thats gotta suck for the kings,Queens, Princes & Princesses of FTL ;) ) or even better (this is what I would want to happen) them trying to get back to FTL again but having to deal with the bad guys &/or as well as good guys that wanna stay here! This would keep Emma at the center of the story arc, as she’s the only one who truly understands how the real world works :)

    I think it would be unexpected and the best idea yet to not have the curse breaking as the finale of the series. We need to see how these people we’ve been so invested in deal with the aftermath of the curse. Whether it is staying in Storybrooke or returning to FTL, there will still be more stories to tell. In fact, I think those might be just as interesting, watching how characters are adjusting to their lives.

    We also need flashbacks to Emma as a teen. We’re missing big chunks of information from this time that I have a feeling this is extremely important. Didn’t the creators say that Henry’s father (cough::Bae::cough) wouldn’t just be some ordinary person? We’ve have FTL flashbacks, but we need flashbacks of our world, whether it’s Emma, Bae, or other untold characters that have ties to our world.

    The curse breaker being the final epsiode of the series would just limit the series. You can only drag a cut and dry plot like that for lets say more than five seasons. After 2 or 3 it can get old. Yes, there should be more to it than just breaking the curse. There is also that room with 20 different doors.
    There are bits of evidence to suggest that SB is FTL. In the mines Henry finds glass coffin shard as does Regina on the surface. Snow’s cabin seems to be the same as the one MM and David jump in to warm up when they release the dove. Underneath Henry Mills’ grave Regina enters a heart chamber.

    I didnt mean the curse would be broken in the final- I said they’ed gear up/ set up the circumstances for the curse to be broken in following seasons – they could get a couple of seasons easily out of good vs bad trying to break the curse, as so far we have only had Henry (& now August) trying to get Emma to believe in the curse NOT break it yet & been introduced to FTL & the main players (we’ll continue to meet more FTL folk as the seasons go on, they’ll just probably either know who they are, be trying to remember or simply be useful to the plot) :)
    Then they can have a few season of trying to get back to FTL or adjusting to life here the possibilities are endless there – but either operation cobra needs to ramp up (so they know who’s who) or finish so the next phase can begin – working out how to break the curse…. At least that’s my opinion lol :)

    What if just possibly SB is FTL? Afterall, both Regina and Henry did find shards of the glass coffin. The cabin MM and David went into during the rain storm was similiar to Snow’s when Red was bringing her food. Before MM almost fell into the ravine looked at it in a funny way. The heart chamber under Henry Mills’ crypt. The question is if it were a different world why would you be able to find traces of the old?

    Yeah that’s my theory – cant remember where I posted it now (its worded much better lol), but I feel that FTL/Enchanted Forest (EF) as been transposed/superimposed (not sure that’s the right words, but its the best I can come up with this close to waking up lol) as SB in our world- so they are sort of one in the same. What Im no longer sure on, is if the curse did strip FTL/EF away to it’s non-magical counterpart in order to bring them here, did it just transpose FTL/EF onto our non magical world meaning FTL/EF folk can return to FTL/EF after the curse is broken or did it strip away FTL/EF altogether so it no longer exists in FTL/EF.
    My sister thinks (& I think it also has merit) is that everything in FTL/EF was dragged along with everyone else into our world & that’s why those things are here – I mean Regina had 28yrs of everyone being zombie like to ‘clean’ up things she didn’t want found & also Gold has tones of ‘stuff’ so maybe the stuff was brought along by the curse to fulfill Regina’s bargain with Rumps & are his comfortable living ;)
