If the symbol is depicting Arsenic, in Alchemy, it is supposed to bring on a feeling of enlightenment. Because there are a few variations of Alchemical symbols, the one on the medallion also resembles Antimony- which is supposed to bring out inner strengths.The the fact that the symbol is reversed, would make it mean the opposite…as with an inverted Crucifix, five point star or Tarot card.[adrotate group="5"]October 5, 2012 at 10:29 pm #155610timespacerParticipant
I see two pretty easy ways around the questions of why would Maleficent and Regina both use the sleeping curse again after it had been shown that it could be undone by True Love’s Kiss (presumably on Aurora’s mother). First, remember that in “A Land Without Magic” Regina intended to kill Charming right after Snow ate the apple. So she didn’t expect Charming to be around to awaken Snow.
As for Maleficent’s use of the curse on Aurora, I agree with Phee that Aurora’s line “You’re not the only one who knows about sacrifice” may be significant for that. Perhaps Maleficent didn’t even use the sleeping curse on Aurora but Aurora exposed herself to it as a means of defeating some other kind of curse, which was perhaps aimed at Philip or her mother. There are lots of possibilities; we’ll just have to wait and see what the writers have in store. I’m betting it will be good, whatever it is.October 6, 2012 at 3:21 am #155642obisgirlParticipant
Other plot holes:
– Mulan accuses Emma and Snow of being responsible for bringing the Wrath that killed Phillip. However, the Wrath attacked them in FTL BEFORE Rumple summoned it to Storybrooke.
– If there was only one Wrath (as the SB and FTL stories were happening concurrently) how did both Rumple AND Aurora have the Wrath’s medallion?
I think Mulan said that Emma and Snow were responsible for killing her prince, not Phillip. I mean, Phillip was already gone at that point.
I was questioning that too, if the wraith in the real world was the same as the one in FT world. There also could have been more than one. It wouldn’t be scary if there was just one. 3 or 4 more wraiths flying around, stealing people’s souls? That’s scary.October 6, 2012 at 3:51 am #155650JosephineParticipant
Okay, there was only one wraith in “Broken”. Here’s how it went down:
- Belle made Gold promise not to kill Regina.
Gold, trying to keep his promise by the loophole of not doing it himself, took the medallion out at the shop.
Gold goes to the jail and marks Regina with the medallion.
He then goes to the woods and with the dagger, summons the powers of the Dark One and stabs the medallion.
The wraith comes up through the medallion and is now wearing it. Gold didn’t take it back. He no longer has it, the wraith is wearing it.
The wraith goes after Regina and with Emma, Snow and Charming’s help send the wraith into another world.
Emma and Snow get sucked into the hat, too.
The wraith emerges in what’s left of the Enchanted Forest, along with Emma and Snow, who are unconscious under the rubble. The wraith flies into the air.
Phillip battles the wraith and with his sword knocks the medallion, which Gold had hours before, off the wraith and as it flies away he picks it up and it marks him.
The wraith eventually sucks Phillips soul out and it’s now inside the medallion. Mulan gives it to Aurora.
Emma and Snow begin to come around from their unconsciousness under the rubble and Mulan hears them. Knowing they came at the same time as the wraith, she thinks they’re bad guys.
See. One wraith, not two. But I think many exist in the Enchanted Forest or other realms. Just in this instance it was the same exact wraith in both Storybrook and FTL. It’s just the Storybrooke story came first and the FTL story came immediately afterward, even though they were showing them concurrently.

Regarding the quote from Maleficent….the kiss breaking the curse and she got over it…..if you look at the fairy tail, Philip killed the dragon/Maleficent before awaking sleeping beauty. So the reference must be to something else. Taking into consideration Regina’s whole back-story of becoming evil because of love lost, I think this is what Maleficent meant.
Not sure about the whole amulet thing though. Couldn’t there be more than one? I think there’s a wrath tied to each amulet otherwise there would be wraths flying around all over the place, and giving the mark to someone awakens it to search for that soul.
Just my 2cents…..T
