About Emma needing to believe to break the curse: never forget, "I do believe in fairies, I do, I do"
Anonymous

Oh yes, and consdering the producers did want to bring Peter Pan… Good catch! :)

I hate that we can't reblog asks but yes your one about Emma knowing Sid is up to no good because she can tell when people are lying struck me. She has a plan brewing I think. I'm so excited. lol

I know! The whole playground/mansion thing from 1.11 still bugs me, but the fact that Emma MAY be playing them makes the episode better, in hindsight.

BTW, I think if you install missing E you can reblog asks. At least, I can and that’s the only thing I’ve installed.

if Emma can tell whenever someone is lying, then how can she not know Sid is lying to her?

Well, I talked about why I think the whole Emma/Sidney/Regina thing is a mess (from 1.11) here, but actually this latest episode made me think the writers are building up to something.

Some of Emma’s expressions (especially after Sidney tells her he can get phone records) and the fact that they made a point of having Emma repeat “I know when someone is lying” to David, just after Sidney lied to her and she seemingly believed it (instead of having her say to David “I don’t know why, but I feel that I can trust you/that you are a good guy”, for example) - well, those two things made me think that Emma *is* aware Sidney is lying, and she’s playing along to see what his angle is.

Just a thought about what Ginny Goodwin's "dumb dumb" moment might have been - how can Emma break the curse if she doesn't even BELIEVE that it's real? They joked at Paleyfest that it's a very simple and obvious thing (and clearly not Snow White and Charming kissing), and that it absolutely has to do with Emma. Maybe the curse is weakening because she's staying in Storybrooke, which means that she at least believes it some, and it will break completely if she believes completely!

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking. I mean, I doubt it’s just as simple as she believes it, it’s suddenly broken, but Emma believing will definitely be a huge step towards it. The producers said so themselves, Emma is the savior, she is the one that can break the curse, no one else. But to break the curse she has to believe first.

What are the chanced of Emma's true love's kiss is with Henry's father? Do you think it could happen? Just a random thought that popped into my head.

Well, it’s possible. But I still don’t believe that’s what will break the curse - it’s like, Emma’s role as the Savior who will bring back the happy endings is… choosing the right guy to kiss? That’s what she does? That’s our heroine? I’m sorry, that would be awful. And I don’t think the writers would do it.

Think about the various ways Emma has weakened the curse already; it hasn’t been by making out with people (well, she made out with Graham, but that’s beside the point), it’s been by saying “hey, you can be better than this. Shape up and BE BETTER”. 

That’s what worked with Archie, Ashley, Hansel&Gretel’s father (blanking on his name), even Graham - I mean, yeah, they kissed, but there was also a lot of Emma saying “you’re good, you can be good, you have a heart, be better and break Regina’s hold”.

As a respond to an ask. The Alice in Wonderland book never talks about Alice returning as a savior. That was Tim Berton's complete creation. The book has a more dream logic to it; meaning that it has little logic. Wonderland is a mad world were nothing makes any sense but no one notice because everyone is mad. There is no big overarching plot about a savior because that would be making sense of a world that has none. Emma cannot be Alice.

Ohhh interesting. I admit I’ve never read the book. And I thought the Burton movie was a snooze fest. Is that heresy?

via:
The story of Alice in Wonderland says that Alice would return as kind of savior. Do you think it could be that Emma is Alice?

Emma is not Alice. She isn’t the ugly duckling. She isn’t anyone BUT Emma. Emma is Emma and no other character.

well, Emma couldn't press charges against Regina because she obtained the documents illegally, so she was just trying to expose Regina as a bad person.

Yes, but when Regina went “oh, I just took that money to build a playground”, everyone was like “that’s all right then, YOU ARE SUCH A SAINT REGINA”. But that’s not how it works. You can’t take money from the city without permission. Even if it’s to build something good, you need approval from the council. Now, I can believe the people in Storybrooke under the spell wouldn’t know that (or care about it), but Emma WOULD know about it. 

Basically, I would have liked it more (and I think it would have made more sense) if, after Regina shows the plans for the playground, Emma had said “but you still took the money without permission, that’s still illegal/bad!”. The town is under a spell, so they probably wouldn’t have cared, but Emma is not and she shouldn’t have been convinced :/ I don’t know if I’m explaining this right.

In regards to that previous ask about 1x11, I'm really really really hoping that later on it reveals that Emma is playing along with Sidney, but was suspicious of him this whole time and was watching him when she could. I really don't want her to be this obviously duped. After everything in his story, no matter what he said, you HAVE to have some level of suspicion, right? I mean even HE would expect it

Yes! I hope so too. It’s just stupid of Emma to be so trusting, and Emma is NOT stupid. So I hope we’ll find out she knew all along.

I feel like Emma's still skeptical about the curse thing, but why should she be? Right before Graham died he whispered to her "I remember everything". Surely someone as smart as her would have made the connection, no?

I don’t think anything completely un-explainable has happened in front of her yet, so I understand why she’s still skeptical. I mean, Graham had been sick all day, then he whispered something weird, then he died - it’s not so weird that she would think he was hallucinating.
