I felt really bad when Graham died….
maybe Emma isn’t supposed to get close to anyone yet????
I thought for a minute when Graham said “I remember” at the end, he would tell Emma to believe in Henry’s book or that the EQ has the power to hurt his heart since she owns it
Maybe Emma would not have believed either but it would have given her something to think about down the line after he died in her arms….[adrotate group="5"]March 4, 2012 at 3:34 pm #138104hjbauParticipant
I think that Emma might not get close to anyone romantically until next season. I think they have enough for her character with her relationships with Henry and with Mary without adding a romantic entanglement. Though there is a little bit of something between her and August, but i hope they don’t make too much of that this season. I don’t really think that Graham was her true love though.March 4, 2012 at 5:56 pm #138107obisgirlParticipant
I think Henry said her and Graham have a special connection because if he hadn’t Snow White’s life, Emma would have never been born. that doesn’t necessarily make him her true love.March 6, 2012 at 3:33 pm #138264cooldudetteParticipant
maybe Graham was not her true love but this new writer guy August seems lesser than Graham ever did…
We will have to wait for a real prince kind of character to see Emma’s true love happenMarch 15, 2012 at 6:21 am #138877once_lostParticipant
Listening to the review of the episode, I was thinking about when Emma and Graham kissed, and how he remembered who he was. Maybe he remembered because it was Emma who kissed him. She was told by Henry, that she was the savior, and her dad.. Prince Charming awakened Snow White in the actual fairy tale…and the opposite, with Mary Margaret awakening David in Storybrooke
Just a thought, love the podcast and keep up the great work!March 15, 2012 at 10:43 am #138881nonnieParticipant
HERE I thought David was being noble and looking for Kathryn and signs of what happened to her……. after all this is near where she disappeared. The reason he was looking through MM was he is DRIVEN BY GUILT. His and MM actions are why Kathryn left in he first place.

Graham died because he strayed off his Storybrooke path and started to think for himself. It didn’t have anything to do with kissing Emma – that was thrown in there by the writers to make us think that kissing Emma was the reason he remembered. Emma coming to town started time moving forward which has caused things to happen which are making the characters have deja vu moments or are making them realize that they are feeling unsatisfied with their life in Storybrooke. Once they start to do something about these things they start to remember more of FTL and/or they get more confident and begin to make their own decisions which causes them to deviate from the set life/path they had in Storybrooke. This unsettles the balance that had been on-going for years which creates a ripple effect and other characters then begin to feel that something is off in their own life and the pattern continues. I believe that Regina is killing people or making them disappear in order to try to maintain or restore balance so that the curse can continue or not be broken by Emma. Graham realized that he didn’t feel anything and then Henry explained that it was because he was the Huntsman and had his heart removed. So Graham realized he was missing his heart. Once his heart was freed from the box in Regina’s vault he could remember his FTL again – but them Regina crushed his heart and he died. I think Regina did something similar to Kathryn because she realized she didn’t really love David – just like Abigail realized she didn’t love James.
