– I think the SB characters will not go back to FTL. The 2nd+ season will have them dealing with their current selves with FTL memories.
– The fog. Could be magic returning. But to whom? (who or whom ???) Maybe Emma gets the magic because she is the offspring & it’s one more thing to throw at her as a new believer. Henry will get his magic when he “becomes of age” which could be in a following season.
– Mr Gold doesn’t have enough magic to track down his son. So he calls in his favor to Emma because she does have the power (=magic) to track down his son. Wasn’t that what she used to do?
– Emma finds clues to Bae’s whereabouts and uses Jefferson’s hat to go to that location. The location could be in this world or other realms.
– In the mean time Snow & Charming get married. As a wedding present Emma uses the hat and takes them to Phuket for a honeymoon. Maybe they can leave SB but not the country because of passports. Phuket was mentioned by August.
– Belle wants Mr Gold to do some “old fashion courting”, This could add a little humor into the awkardness of seeing Mr Gold do little, sweet things for her. awwwwhhhhhh…
