I seem to remember that back in Hat Trick, when Jefferson and Reggie went to the Queen of Hearts’ vault, there was one heart box, glowing more than the others. It was just above Henry’s to the right. Maybe Cora had her heart in her own vault for safe keeping OR perhaps it’s back in her original vault that Reggie now considers hers. Reggie has said on several occasions that she has no ideal who all the hearts belong to as she hasn’t kept track and her mother had so many of her own.[adrotate group="5"]

Is that the only way to kill her?
Doubtful, in the end she’s human and can be killed by any means any human can be killed by.

I was listening to the other side of the mirror podcast, and they had a theory that the one heart Cora took out to control the ‘zombies’ was her heart. Which i think is a possibility–but i don’t think she’d leave her heart in Enchanted Forest while she goes to Storybrooke, so maybe it is somewhere else now.

Did anyone get my reference to Dragontheart and Harry Potter in the initial reactions podcast? I’m thinking that Cora’s heart is in someone else important, possibly even Snow or Regina. If this is true, then that person may have to sacrifice their own life in order to defeat Cora.
Oddly enough I was toying with this idea with a fanfiction I was writing. My idea is that there might be possibly magic stronger than true love and that is a true sacrifice. Reason being is that to give wholly of yourself for the sake of another goes against human nature and this would mean that it would not happen often. Belle for instance sacrificed her livelihood for the good of her village but as for laying down her life for her fellow person she seems to be one who might do it though I am sure it would be prevented.
If that is the case the death would have to come from someone meaningful to have an impact on the audience and it would be difficult to think of any of the main characters or other characters without worrying about what is going to happen to others. However I suppose we will cross that bridge when we get there.
Now regarding where Cora could have hid her heart since she has been to many different worlds and it seems each world intersects with other worlds or at least with a “portal” that allows the ability to go other worlds. She could have placed a curse to protect her heart. There are several anomalies on earth that might be some of the places where she could have hidden her heart.
For example let’s suppose Bermuda triangle. It could explain why there have been shipwrecks and the like because they got too close to her heart and it would be a interesting way of tying in real world mysterious events to a fairy tale event and story.
It could also fit with the Davy Jones story.
She may be able to roam around freely enough in the area of the anomaly (or close to it). I would hazard a guess that she may not be able to move around outside the greater vicinity of the anomaly without suffering from the rules of nature in this world. In worlds where there is some sort of magic (or ability to manipulate magic) would then mean she has the freedom to move as she pleases.
Furthermore if she is limited in her movement depending on which world she is in and the kind of magic it has how limited is Cora in what she can do? Is her being Storybrooke allowed (in terms of movement and magic) because she is in the bubble of magic where once it pops she has to face her being literally heartless faces its consequences?
I find it fascinating that she would go through such lengths to protect her heart and to shun love. Only a person who has faced a horrible heartbreak or betrayal would do something like this. Unless her ambitiousness and craving for power, strength etc is what motivated her to seek magic, and remove what she felt was weakness. She might have faced a betrayal of the worst kind or lost her true love similarly to Regina (maybe in part of having no heart why she had to teach Regina the weakness of true love as well) or suffered from having no love (negligent, abusive parents and “love” that turned out to be nothing but ash).
The only thing though is with her being in Storybrooke for the latter half of season 2 I assume we are going to end with a cliffhanger and have her continue to be the villain in season 3 (with either Hook as the sidekick–whose playing both sides, or new ones such as King George) I am definitely trying to figure out what will happen next. I have a sort of idea.
I am guessing that true love will break the curse. It may be that Emma's love for Henry broke one part of the curse but that a new love (or old i.e. Neal) is going to break the curse due to Emma being cursed.
But then my thing is that I both want it to happen but also do not want to happen at least for the next couple of seasons. Because then we have this whole new dynamic of fairy tale characters in our world. Do they try and stay in Storybrooke–is Storybrooke going to remain or change back the landscape it was before? Are they going to naturally distance themselves? Try and go back to Fairytale land since they did go to Snow's castle which was in the area of the curse, no?December 20, 2012 at 8:16 pm #165586akira101Participant
Quick question for the sake of research for writing. Has it ever been explicitly stated that Rumpel has no idea about the fact that Cora has no heart? I know it’s assumed he has no clue, but is it ever stated directly?
