Also – no foundation for this theory, just a thought –, maybe his wife was Alice. ^.^ I don’t think his daughter is Alice, ’cause she’s already got two names.
@Mia: If you go by the book version there is some validation to your theory in regards to Alice. In ‘Through the Looking Glass’ – the 9th chapter is entitled ‘Queen Alice’. Because, after dutifully playing the game set forth by the Red Queen, Alice literally tumbles into her crown. There’s even a song about it in the book, that goes like this – –
” I’ve a scepter in hand, I’ve a crown on my head.
Let the looking glass creatures, whatever they be,
come & dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen & Me.
. . . And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three! “
By that logic, I’m inclined to side with your theory that Jefferson’s wife was in fact, Alice.April 18, 2012 at 8:58 pm #142807hjbauParticipant
I have been doing a rewatch and i just can’t get over how polite Regina is to Jefferson. Even when she leaves him there she doesn’t say anything really horrible except that he shouldn’t have left Grace and that she wanted to save her father. The way Regina acts in this one is just so weird to me. What is between the two of them? There must be something.April 18, 2012 at 10:35 pm #142812the wizParticipant
EQ/Regina seems to use everyone in her life and to care for no one. When they don’t serve her uses for them she discards them as she did with Graham/Huntsman or threatens to discard them as she did with Sidney/Genie. So I suspect she is using Jefferson, like all the others. The difference emerges from how useful Jefferson is to her. He gets her job done. When the two arrive at the room with all the doors in the Hat Trick episode, Regina says to Jefferson: “I forgot how magnificent you are”. She appreciates quality on her own terms — using people to the max.April 18, 2012 at 11:27 pm #142815celesstarrParticipant
I agree the EQ seemed to be “easy” with Jefferson, as if he were her extended family or very close family friend. My guess would be maybe Jefferson knew Cora or was in a close circle with Regina’s family, prior to his renouncing use of the magic Hat. She seemed surprised he would prefer to live like a poor man, implying that she knew him when he was more wealthier.
And with Jefferson’s own easiness and teasing tone when referring to her as “the Queen”…maybe he knew her before she became Queen.
Also, It wouldn’t be a surprise that all or most of the “magical” beings in FTL would be in the know of each other.April 19, 2012 at 12:00 am #142820hjbauParticipant
And when Jefferson first goes in his house he just says “What do you want Regina?” or something like that. He only refers to her as the queen when talking about her in third person i think. And then she bows when he asks her to care for his daughter. It is just so weird.November 21, 2012 at 1:34 am #161483princessaliceParticipant
I was wondering about Jefferson’s wife? Who is she? He forbid to travel by hat because he lost her. I reckon, maybe his wife is Alice. That would be so cool and grace also looks like Alice soo, it would work out i guess. 🙄November 21, 2012 at 8:20 pm #161619evilqueenParticipant
i think ‘the doctor’ episode from the second season explains a lot – Mat Hatter knew Regina when she was still young and good and tried to help her (or at least TO HER it looked like he was trying to help) with bringing Daniel back. Maybe deep down there she’s grateful to him for that. Also, she might be polite to him because
– a) she needs her father back so has to play nice
– b) she knows that he’s the only one who’s able to travel between the worlds just like that and that’s EXTREMELY valuable especially that probably, if she wants to have the ultimate power, she needs things “out of this world” 😉
As much as it would be handy to have Alice as Jefferson’s wife, I also think that Regina maybe Alice herself 😈
I don’t think there was anything between her and Mat Hatter in terms of relationship – at least not for Regina who could never forget Daniel and the pain her mother caused her.
