Going off the theory that Cora was the miller’s daughter of legend then maybe that means that Jefferson is Regina’s older brother. Bear with me for a moment. If Cora made a deal with Rumple then it’s rather safe to assume that she traded her first born for the status ect. that Rumple could give her.
Combine that with the fimalirty that Regina and Jefferson seem to have it might be possible. And if that’s the case maybe there was some sort of reunion between Jefferson and his real family at some point and he decided that he wanted nothing to do with Cora.
That would explain why she got so emotional when she said “you don’t abandon family” just before she trapped Jefferson. Maybe she thought he could save her from Cora or that maybe with him in the family unit, Cora would have gotten back some of what she lost and then maybe she wouldn’t be so harsh with Regina or something.
It would also explain why how Jefferson got magic (he did make the hat, remember?).
It’s just an idea, what do you think.[adrotate group="5"]May 28, 2012 at 12:30 am #147880schmackyParticipant
So Jefferson is the child she gave up? I like that. It makes sense.May 28, 2012 at 12:37 am #147881
I’ve heard it said that only siblings could get under each others skin the way they do.May 28, 2012 at 1:41 am #147886antbeeParticipant

I like it too. Maybe it’s because I have seen a lot of theories about Bae being Jefferson, which I don’t think is true, but I do think that there are parallels between Rumple, Baelfire, and Jefferson which might be a hint to Jefferson being the first born that Rumple wanted from Cora perhaps as a pseudo-Bae.
I do admit though that when it was first suggested after “Hat Trick”, I was unsure of the idea because Jefferson and Regina had a lot of chemistry that didn’t seem too sibling like, but the more that I think about it, that could just be part of their perverse family dynamics.May 28, 2012 at 1:58 am #147890
If you look at there interaction in the last two episodes it seems to me like Jefferson wants to beleave that Regina will hold up her end (and i’m not sure it’s just about Grace–he’s smart enough to know it’s a long shot especially when she gives up the last bit of magic she has to get the apple) and at the same time Regina seems to think she can continue to string him around and he won’t bite back.
It kind of reminds me of the Arthur and Morgan dynamic in Camelot, for those of you who have seen it. Both of them seem to want to trust each other (at least really deep down) but by then Regina thinks that love and by extension trust is a weakness and Jefferson knows what kind of person she is.
This would also explain why Regina spent so much effort on Jefferson’s punishment after all for almost all of Storybrook they were just prevented from finding their happily ever after but Jefferson was actually punished.
Honestly i would love to see this come to fruition. It would be interesting to see Jefferson and Regina begin to sort of patch things up when everyone is against her. I can see Jefferson sort of being her friend while still being on Emma’s side.
Besides now that Malificent is dead, Regina will need a new frenime and no one fills that role better than family.May 28, 2012 at 2:10 am #147894schmackyParticipant

I’m not quite convinced that Jefferson would be on Emma’s side. Or, at the very least, Emma allowing him to be on her side. Jefferson and Emma may have the same enemy but that doesn’t make them friendly in any sort of way or “teaming up” or something.
I like the weird tension between them. I hope it stays that way.May 28, 2012 at 2:22 am #147895
I think he would be on her side as long as it aligned with whatever his agenda was at the time. And even if Emma wouldn’t allow him on her side, she might not have a choice.
Jefferson is after all the most nutral character we have seen yet.
If the purple cloud is bringing magic back to everyone then she would need a magic user on her side and i get the fealing that the fairy’s would be extreamly picky about when they would interfrear. They only seem to help extremely worthy people with one big wish or in cases like when the curse was comming. I think Emma would fight more dirty than the fairys would be willing to help with at least until it comes to a finalie worthy event.

Between who? Jefferson and Regina or Jefferson and Emma? If my theory is right about Regina than their relation would have to shift (or at least the way we see it would). And the tension between Emma and Jefferson comes from the fact that it’s a last ditch effort of a desperate man. Depending on what happens with Grace getting her memories back and after he may be able to get rid of some of that desperateness.May 28, 2012 at 7:22 am #147918hjbauParticipant
Yeah i had a similar theory months ago that Jefferson was Cora’s half brother through someone else.May 28, 2012 at 9:50 am #147940celesstarrParticipant
If you watch the finale closely you can see that they juxtaposed Jefferson’s scene with Regina at the hospital with Emma’s scene meeting with August right before he turns to wood. For me, Emma and August always had this brotherly/sisterly feel to their relationship…so I’m thinking the writers are implying that there is that same element in Jefferson/Regina’s relationship.May 28, 2012 at 10:04 am #147944theladybelleParticipant

Never thought of that. Nice one!
I sort of like the idea of them being siblings. It’s wierd but still a nice idea.
