Remember too that August told Henry that although he and Henry believe because they have faith, Emma is someone who needs proof in order to believe. I believe now that August added pages to the book in order to give Emma the proof she needed in order to help her believe. So I think that August has added some things to the book that will definately make Emma stop and think that something is not quite right in SB. The question I have is how August would know what to add. It makes me wonder, yet again – going back to another original theory after going back and forth – if August might be Bae. If Rumple supposedly has the ability to see the future, or at least read people well enough to be able to predict the future, maybe August is Bae’s son and he has inherited Rumple’s ability to either see the future or read people really well. If that is the case then he would know what he would need to add to the book to help Emma realize that the book isn’t just a book of made up stories.
I also wonder if Emma doesn’t necessarily need to be magical in the true sense of the word to have magical abilities to the FTL/SB characters. Emma is the only character so far that bridges FTL, SB, and the real world. So, in a way, if Rumple, Henry, or August can get Emma to believe in the book she would be pretty powerful because of the knowledge she would have and because of the ability she would have to travel between lands (especially now that we have seen the Mad Hatter episode). Like Rumple said at the end of the Heart of Darkness episode she could be more powerful than she knows even if she can’t do any magic in the true sense of the word – especially if the FTL characters can’t do any real magic in SB. And I wonder about that now because of the scene between Mr. Gold and Regina outside the Sheriff’s office last night – if they could do magic, it seems like whatever went wrong, would not have gone wrong.
