    Pure speculation:

    I think, THINK, that they are going to make Gold's son into Henry's father. That would make Henry, Gold's grandson, and Snow's and Charming's grandson as well. It could be some very interesting Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. :D

    Just a guess!

    I agree. I think we posited that at the beginning of the season, but they haven't done anything to dispute that. Plus, it maximizes the "soap opera" factor, where the good guys are related to the bad guys, and characters have to weigh family/honor/love/ad nauseum against their own personal goals and desires. :) They don't even have to arrange a new marriage: it was done in the past! Do you think Gold knows about it?

    Leaving Regina out was lazy writing. Inviting her was the natural thing to do, this was just to manufacture sympathy.

    I think it's more likely to generate future evil.

    I don't think it would be appropriate to punish people with real-world punishments for things that they did in FTL---where it probably wasn't even against the law. Charming, Snow, Red and others killed people in FTL as well---representatives of the government. Should they be imprisoned as well?

    I think destroying the world trumps cultural relativity... :D

    I was talking about Regina. And she murdered in Storybrooke as well.

    Also, I make a distinction between unprovoked murder and killing someone in a fight or self-defense.

    Oh, I know but you have to apply the same rules to everyone.

    Really? Who? When?

    Perhaps, but our law doesn't. Regina's guards were the equivalent of police. You can't just kill police and say that it's OK because they were fighting you.

    If we're talking about Regina, then yes, she killed the sheriff by destroying his stolen heart.

    True, but no one knows that, right?

    Have you lost your mind for real? If you knew I was referring to Regina, why did you say I was referring to Cora?

    And he is not the only one Regina murdered.

    But do the townspeople know for sure that she killed anyone in the real-world?

    They know that she destroyed their world. That seems pretty unforgivable to me...
