Wish we knew for sure which two eps he’s gonna be in. I’ve come up with a crackpot theory based on really not much at all, but depending on which eps he’s in, there might be half a chance I could possibly be onto something…maybe. LOL Will be keeping my eyes peeled for the guest star credits for the last eps.
Edited to add that I caved and posted it in the “call” thread. In case anyone sees it there and wonders where on earth I got the ridiculous idea that Grace’s mother will be Aurora….
When I was re-watching the scene with Jefferson mentioning Grace’s mother, I got to wondering who she could be and if they maybe dropped any hints in this ep. Then I noticed the doll that Regina’s holding up very deliberately so we see it clearly when she’s all, “was it because of your sweet daughter?” It’s blonde with a pink dress with white sleeves, and has one of those cone hats on, so she’s obviously a princess doll.
So I wondered if Grace’s mother was lost (note: he never says the word “died”, that may be significant, or maybe it’s not) when she was a baby, (she didn’t know her father had known the Queen, so chances are she was a baby when Jefferson gave up the good life and ceased associating with Regina), maybe Jefferson made this doll in her mother’s image.
So I googled Disney princesses and there was Aurora with her blonde hair, wearing a pink dress. The sleeves are pale pink, not white, but it didn’t look that different to the doll.
Jefferson is back for two more eps.
Ep 21 is titled Apple Red as Blood, and I was wondering recently if we may see Maleficent again in that ep, because that’s where Regina got the sleeping curse for the apple.
So if Maleficent could potentially be in an ep, and Jefferson could potentially be in the same ep, and we’ll hopefully see more of his backstory, and the doll kinda looks Aurora-ish….maybe that’s who Grace’s mother was.
It’ll probably be wrong, but hey, ya never know right. When I was googling for anything Once related that mentioned Aurora, I found this: http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/03/once-upon-a-time-can-you-spot-the-future-characters.html
Which has Kitsis saying, “Aurora would be interesting. We definitely saw Maleficent, but we purposely didn’t see Aurora.” And in the next paragraph, “We try, when we get an idea, to seed it in and pay if off later.” Kitsis agrees. “We definitely have little things planted that haven’t fully been noticed yet. When people go back, they’ll go ‘oh!'” So reading that, I thought I may as well throw my crazy theory out there, just in case.
