Here is a quote from episode 19 “The Return” where Mr. Gold is talking to Booth after Booth tries to control him with the knife.
Rumple: “That this knife can not harness any magic in this world because there is no magic in this world.”
As we have found out through episode 17 “Hat Trick,” Emma had the power to create a magic hat because she has brought magic into this world because of being unaffected by the curse. Since her arrival, time has begun and Regina is loosing her control (much to Mr. Gold’s benefit).
So the question is, WILL WE SEE EMMA TAKE POSSESSION OF THE KNIFE AND CONTROL THE DARK ONE aka MR. GOLD IN STORYBROOKE BEFORE THE END OF THE SEASON!!![/b
That very same thought crossed my mind at the end of the episode…part of me wants to see Emma wield that knife (just out of curiosity) and another part of me doesn’t…too afraid of what it might turn her into…but if there is someone in Storybrooke who can use it, it’s probably Emma.
Question: My mind’s kinda fuzzy this morning…where is the knife now anyway? Who took it after the August/Gold confrontation? Did Gold take it with him?
