Chip and the creepy Peter Pan doll are down there, too. So why not?
But does that mean that every inanimate object has unfinished business. How silly! I have no problem with the pen being down there but the idea that’s it’s alive and it, its very self has unfinished business, is…silly. Or is Chip going to come to life and talk to Rumple and explain how he’s a very sad tea cup because his OTP is currently on the rocks??
I feel like things like the doll and Chip were just used as props because, “Hey guyz, it’s those props you luved, so we’re re-using them for funziez and FEELS.” And they’re making the Pen a different thing.
Didn’t they establish though, that it was the will of the Author that could control the Pen? So, even if the Pen contains magic, it’s not a sentient being in its own right? Therefore, it shouldn’t have special rules applied to it whereby it knows it has unfinished business.
I can get behind the idea in the sense that the concept of Henry being the Author was so very unfinished, and now they’re trying to rectify how they just dropped the whole thing, by giving Henry the means to be the Author again. But the way they’re going about it is a bit weird. It kinda smacks of them being desperate to find a way to bring Henry back into significance, and the logic of the situation be damned. But even if they’re going about it in a silly way, I can at least appreciate that they want to give some significance back to Henry.
