Out of everyone on the boat, yes, David has the purest heart. But out of everyone on the show, it is probably Henry. He has been the big believer in everything since the start of the show. It was his belief in the book and Emma that was the catalyst for everything else.[adrotate group="5"]"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"July 2, 2013 at 2:57 pm #199143DemiletoParticipant
Thanks RG for the breaking news announcement on the chat box, would’ve never noticed this otherwise! 🙂
I’m inclined to agree with “Truest Believer” being Henry. He’s always been the most idealistic character in the series, fiercely believing in good and so against evil, I can totally see his kidnapping, his being alone in an unknown world, separated from his family, taking a toll on him, somewhat paralleling Neal’s own experiences.July 2, 2013 at 3:02 pm #199144HappyEndingsSpectator
But David has faith in the Lord, which I think makes him more of a believer then Henry in fact David use to say that to Snow to have faith so I think I will bet more on him then Henry. Besides Henry, would be to obvious in my opinion.July 2, 2013 at 3:02 pm #199145JosephineParticipant
Okay, after a little googling and coming up with psychological philosophies from every from Plato to 70s psychologists, I’m thinking that the title may refer to Greg and Tamara. That was my gut reaction in the beginning and I’m sticking to it, although Henry might be in there, too. It can work on a number of levels.
Why do I think of Greg and Tamara. Well, they’re zealots for their cause. A quick search of the definition of “true believer” came up with this:
n.One who is deeply, sometimes fanatically devoted to a cause, organization, or person
That describes those two to me. Maybe GOAT are going to be tested when they find out who they really are working for. I don’t know, I just have feeling the title is about them.

My first thought was Henry. He is the truest believer. Of their existence, of people being good. Of good itself. Perhaps this has something to do with why Pan wants him?
It could also refer to the Truest Believer of whatever cause The Home Office has. It could be Pan himself.
The question isn’t who is the truest believer but truest believer of what?July 2, 2013 at 3:06 pm #199148PriceofMagicParticipant
Since episode 1 is normally an ensemble episode rather than focussing on a specific character, I think the title is referring to a revelation. Perhaps the reason why Peter Pan wants Henry is because he needs “The heart of the truest believer” to achieve his plan. Peter Pan may be trying to rip out Henry’s heart. If Henry somehow avoids being taken directly to Peter Pan and avoids his clutches, then it could set up a race against time for the Jolly Roger Heroes to find Henry before Peter Pan does. Henry could be avoiding Peter Pan in Neverland with the aid of some allies such as maybe Ariel.

David is definitely a believer in his wife and his family and his own goodness. I’m not sure how you’re getting the Lord as this show is really leaving organized religion out of the question. Have we even seen a church in SB? David’s name is of course a play on David the Sheperd in the Bible, but that doesn’t mean that David (our Charming) is any more faithful than anyone else in terms of religious faith.
I will say that Henry is a very obvious choice and this show likes to play with red herrings, you’re right. David is a good candidate, I’m just not sure if they’ll jump into a new season focusing on one character. They never have before. The “Pilot” was about everyone and so was “Broken.”
WHOA. That’s a very good catch. Like very good. Tamara is definitely a zealot, she talks the talk and walks the walk of someone who has absolute belief in her convictions, even if they are murderous and “evil.” Hmmm. That bears some pondering."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"July 2, 2013 at 3:22 pm #199150JosephineParticipant
If anyone is a “truest believer” in their cause, it’s Tamara.
Like I said, because the first episode is usually devoted to the whole cast, it might refer to each of them. They each have a purpose they’re working on and they’re own methods and beliefs to achieve it.
Off topic a bit, but now I’ve got the song “True Religion” (an old traditional folk song that probably nobody has ever heard of) stuck in my head.

Since Tamara is now a regular on the Walking Dead, how does that affect the availability of the actress? Maybe Tamara is the one that will have her heart taken thus ending Tamara’s story and freeing up the actress for TWD with perhaps guest appearances in flashbacks.

TWD begins airing their newest episodes in October, which means she’ll need to be on their set at least two months prior, so August. I’ve said before but I would expect GOAT to be taken care of by at least episode 5. If this episode is about Tamara’s background then the title does make sense as she is a zealot. Will not be sorry to see Tamara go."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
