OUAT – Jefferson’s Question “What’s A Story”?

The Mad Hatter, he was simply mad from trying to make that one Hat that would help him go home back to his daughter Grace for the last 28 years stuck in that house, alone.

Surely, solitude would make you go, well mad. But Jefferson had a reason, he only wants to go back to Grace. He is late for tea.

  When he sat Emma down to make his Hat because he was convinced that Emma has magic, they had a conversation that made Emma think. eventually she ‘woke up’, and looked at Henry’s book.

Here is the conversation they had.

Emma: “The hats, the tea, your psychotic behavior. You think you’re the Mad Hatter.”

Jefferson: “My name is Jefferson”

Emma : “Okay, you clearly globbed onto my kid Henry thing. There just stories; The Mad Hatter is in Alice in wonderland a book, a book I actually read. “

Jefferson: “Stories, stories what’s a story? When you were in high school did you learn about the Civil War?”

Emma: “Yeah, of course. “

Jefferson: “How? Did you read about it, per chance in a book? How is that any less real than any other book? “

Emma: “History books are based on history.”

Jefferson: “…and storybooks are based on what? Imagination? Where does that come from? It has to come from somewhere.

You know what the issue is with this world, everyone wants some magical solution for their problem, and everyone refuses to believe in magic. “

Emma : “Here’s the thing, Jefferson this is it. This is the real world”

Jefferson: “The real world. How arrogant are you to think that yours is the only one?  There are infinite more we have to open your mind they touch one another, pressing up in a long line of lands. Each Just as real like the last, each having their own rules. Some have magic, some don’t and some need magic. Like this one. And that’s where you come in. “

Storybooks are based on what? Imagination? Where does that come from? It has to come from somewhere.

That’s a good question. Where do you think they come from?

Also take a look at where did Jefferson go Blog post. We wonder where he went too.

OUAT-August’s Secret To Henry; In How to Get Emma to Believe

August found Henry at Granny’s upset over Mary being suspected of Kathryn’s disappearance and possible murder. This is the conversation they had.

Henry: “She didn’t do it, why can’t people see that?”

August: “because, most people just see what’s right in front of them. I don’t think you can find the answers you want in the bottom of that mug.”

Henry: “Then Where?”

August: “That book in your bag. You know I’m a writer so I’m partial to finding my answers in the literary form.”

“Henry:  “it’s just a book”

august:  “is it?”

Henry: “Yeah”

August: “I think we both know that it’s not the case.”

Henry: what do you know about it

August: I know it’s A book of stories.

Henry: aren’t all books?

August: Story’s that really happen.

Henry: “You think my book is real?”

August: “As real as I am”

Henry: “How do you know?”

A: “Let’s just say that, I’m a believer. And I want to help others see the light, that my friend is why I’m here.

Henry: “but I already believe”

August:  “I’m not here for you buddy, I’m here for Emma”

Henry: “So you want to get her to believe, why don’t you just tell her?”

August:  “There are some people like you and me , we can go on faith,. But others like Emma they need proof. “

Henry: “last time I tried to look for proof I got trapped in a sinkhole”

August: “there are less dangerous places to look”

*August points to Henry’s book*

This made Henry realize that the only way he could get Emma to believe a little bit more was to find proof.

This where, he found the skeleton key ring he stole from Regina.

See other blog post for more about the Key Ring

Henry also tricked Emma into using the key that opened Mary’s apartment door.

He made her believe, like August said she needed proof to believe.

This is also something else that was being said by Emma to Mary.  She needed proof in order to believe that Mary did not kill Kathryn despite the proof was the heart that was in Mary’s jewelry box.

Emma needs proof in order for her to believe, all Henry has to do, Is keep on showing her instead of telling her, eventually she will believe on her own.

How do you think Henry or August could make Emma believe that everything in his storybook is true?
