I have been wondering about the timeline for this. I have always thought that the Sleeping Curse was already on the apple when the Blind Witch had it, but i am not so sure. We know that Rumpel did not have the Bottle of Love until after Snow met the dwarfs and the whole incident with her going to the dark side because that was how Rumpel traded Charming for his strand of hair.
Hansel and Gretel retrieved the apple from the Blind Witch before that because we saw Regina see Snow meet the dwarfs through the mirror and Regina had the apple in her hand right then before she speaks to Hansel and Gretel’s father.
It just seemed like the apple was special so i assumed that it was already poisoned with the Sleeping Curse by this time, but how could Regina have traded the Dark Curse for the Sleeping Curse with Maleficent before the apple was taken by the Blind Witch because Rumpel did not have the Bottle of Love which he used in the Dark Curse.
There seems to be an issue here. I don’t get why the apple is special if it isn’t already imbibed with the Sleeping Curse. And i don’t get how Regina could have made the trade with Maleficent before Rumpel had the Bottle of Love to place a drop on the parchment and finish off the Dark Curse and a very important part of the Dark Curse. It made Emma the savior, the breaker of the curse, the child of prophecy, the one whose name would give him back his memories. So unless the Dark Curse was being traded before Rumpel put the drop of love on it then i don’t quite get the continuity here. Unless the apple is special for some other reason.June 12, 2012 at 3:54 am #148602LisaFromOHParticipant
I agree; I don’t think the apple had the sleeping curse on it when the Blind Witch had it. Maybe the sleeping curse would only work on an object that already had some magic and that’s what made the apple special? Maybe the apple was from a magic tree, similar to the one that transported Pinocchio and Emma to our world.February 15, 2013 at 5:40 pm #173534snowredParticipant
Here is my issue.
Rumple visits the EQ on snow white and charmings wedding and tells her about the curse and then she goes and threatens them right? When she returns her father reminds her that she gave it away. (how did she give it away if she didn’t know about it yet?) She goes to Malificent and gets back, tried to enact the curse but nothing. Her father then suggests she goes to see the person who gave it to her in the first place which we know is Rumple. OK
So when the hell did they imprison him?
When did Malificent get the curse from Regina?
and how is it that this whole thing happens in one night ?
I’m a little confused about this time line because it’s a huge part of the story and it’s quiet a mess tbh…anyone care to try an explain?February 15, 2013 at 10:53 pm #173581maryrose d.Participant
I think is what happened- the block stuff from season 2
first rumple tells regina gives the curse to her
then she trades it to malicent for the sleeping curse
then when rumple suggests it, regina tells snow white and charming about the curse on their wedding day
that night regina goes to malicent and steals the curse from her
over the next 9 months ( based on snow begins pregent) regina gathers up ingrediants for the curse and tries to enact it she also sends to hook to go kill her mother and brings her back, then when she fails with the curse, she goes to rumple who was imprisoned over the last couple of months and then kills her father after her mother then uses his heart to enact the curse.
