Now you got me confused haha. But I understand what you are generally saying. There has been major confusion on how much magic is in SB. Here’s what we do know: Emma brought magic in. She caused time to move, she made Jefferson a magical hat. We have only seen Regina do her heart thing, no other type of magic. Like Gold said, she can’t turn anyone into a snail and step on them. So it appears her magic is limited. It looks like only Emma and Regina have power in the time being. Who knows what’s going on with the stranger, he’s a complete mystery. Maybe Emmas job as savoir was to bring magic in and what rumpelstiltskin meant by the ” final battle will begin” is that is will start a battle between himself and Regina? Also, maybe as the curse gets broken more magic is restored?
