i think the writer is a representation of the mirror (mirror mirror on the wall whos the fairest) the mirror sees and hears all so he knows everything therefore wrote the book with the magic typewriter that makes pages in henrys book appear when he uses it to finish the story. which probably won't happen this season.
I think the stranger is God/Jesus. If all fairytale characters are in Storybrooke, why not the Holy Father?
I think I agree with everyone's theory that the stranger is the book's author or editor.
This was a great episode - man, that Prince Charming. God help me, he's beautiful.
But seriously - in the middle of the street, guys? That was so silly I almost feel like they deserved to get caught. At least TRY to hide it!
Sorry for the misspellings in my below comments. Pinoccio should be Pinnocchio and Japedo should be Geppetto.
My theory on the stranger is that it is Pinoccio. Modern day Japedo has said in a previous episode that him and his wife never had any children...so where the hell is Pinoccio? Also P and J were building the wardrobe...hmmm...I think Pino hid in the wardrobe and came through with Emma. He wasn't effected by the curse so he aged 28 years. He also remembers Fairy Tale land, knows the prediction of Emma the savior, and is now writing about it. I agree that there is probably more with the typewriter. Something Magical about it maybe?
I don't buy the Stranger being a Grimm theory...mainly because there are too many tales (1001 Arabian Nights for starters) that the brothers Grimm did not write.
The theory that the stranger is Gold's son = FAIL. Lets look at the history shall we. Rump's son was a boy when Rump became Magical. Later on we see Jimminy being turned into a cricket by Magical Rump and Japedo is a boy. By the time of the curse Japedo is an old man...sooo that means Rump's son is AT LEAST as old as Japedo...if not older. Personally i think Rumps son will end up being someone's father. Snow White's or the Evil Queen's perhaps?...theory TBC
The Grimm Brothers didn't write all the fairytales most of the ones we are most familiar with are Grimm, Snow White, Rumplestilzchen, Rapunzel etc. but Pinocchio was written by Carlo Collodi and the wooden wardrobe they used to transport baby emma is a Narnia reference. Hans Christian Anderson. Charles Perrault was 100 years before Grimm and he did Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella. Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland, JM Barrie Peter Pan. The show would be Much shorter if they were only using Grimm tales. Theres only 1 writer Grimm Bros were 2, theres another show that just came out thats called Grimm they wouldn't want to cross the two. Since he can come and go from Storybrook my guess is the mystery man isn't in the book and not part of the curse which is why Regina's so worried and why Henry was asking him question, Henry would know if he was in the book.
I too think the stranger is the writer of Henry's book. But Henry's book doesn't reveal an ending. Maybe he's there to write the "ending" of the storybook.
I kinda wonder if the "wriyer" might play a role similar to that of Chuck in Supernatural?
I'm sorry but the stranger is HOT! I can't wait to see how his story unfolds. He brings a certain pizzaz to the real world that has been sorely lacking (sorry David and MM). That scene with Emma was probably my favorite of the night which is saying a lot.I love Snow and Charming, I think they are definitely my fave characters. The entire episode was just so good and heartbreaking at the same time! Your right about Regina though, she will torture them, and knowing MM, she will easily back down. Rump is definitely up to something and I have to wonder if he has a master plan that connects to every story or if he is just playing by ear, either way he is a wild card that will surely trump Regina if he so chooses.
Great Ep. and I can't wait to see another Emma/Regina showdown next week (also so smexy stranger appearance would be nice...)
Great episode. Did anyone recognize the tune Grumpy was whistling in the dungeon right before he spoke to Snow? So clever!
I think the mystery writer might be the writer of Henry's book, with all the fairytales in it.
Perosnally, I think the writer is they guy who wrote the fairy tale book that Henry has. I mean, it had to come from somewhere right?
The idea that mystery man is the writer or a writer of significance is a given. Obviously the typewriter means more, it's modern America and he is using a typewriter, definitely fairytale potential and how easy he showed Emma indicates there is more to it than meets the eye. Also the theory of being rumplestilken's son, although I don't think so, is probable as he obviously knows more than the characters and the audience and that they left the story of what actually happened after rumple became the dark one was so vague. I am ready for them to reveal the story behind the Queens hatred of Snow, but know that's not going to happen anytime soon. Rumple has something up his sleeve with Snows hair, I'm nervous about it, but look forward to see how Snow finally remembers Prince Charming but am nervous about Regina's hand in their reunion. Awaiting the next episode!
1 star. Mystery Guy is interesting.
I loved this episode, but still have more questions about everything.
Yes why does the new guy get to go out of storybrook? Why didn't James Father(The KING) recognize snow as a Royal? her father was a Royal, I'm dying to know how her father died, what was so awful that Snow Did to the Evil Quee?
I think the writer may be one of the Grimm brothers! The Grimm brothers made all the fairytales and the guy wonts to write about the town that holds all the characters. It makes sense!
Its might be Sherlock Holmes. The actress who plays Regina has said that he will be making an appearance.
Its Sherlock Holmes. The actress who plays Regina said he would be making an appearance. That's my best guess.
Best line of the night was from Grumpy: "I like my pain. I need my pain. It makes me who I am." R.I.P. Stealthy. While I liked this episode, I am a little puzzled over why the writers expect us to believe that Snow, a princess in her own right, did not know James' dad. They're both royals. So, you'd think they all know each other, party at annual balls, get together for hunting parties, send gifts upon royal births, that sort of thing.
I do hope we see how James got out of his wedding to Abigail. We know she wasn't thrilled either, and I'm looking forward to that whole backstory. I was looking forward to seeing more of Jiminy Cricket. But, I guess David won't be going to marital counseling if he's connecting with MM. Don't really care to speculate on Mr. Easy Rider. Just glad to watch it all unfold.
I was thinking in a different direction. The only person I remember saying anything about him being familiar was Regina, maybe he is a lost love...didn't the Queen say Snow made her lose her love or something like that? Maybe they are leading up to that.....
I cant believe this show has not won any awards! Ginnifer goodwin is an awesome actress and one of my faves. It is weird that the mystery guy can go in and out of storybrooke hoowever i dont know if he is a grimm i mean the story is based on things that actually happen to tbeir fairy tale selves so wouldnt he have had to live during their time to know all their stories. He has yet to run into mr gold so maybe once he starts meeting other people in town his story will unfold i dont believe his bike broke down conveniently in front of the mayors house. I hate regina had to be the one to see the kiss now she is going to get involved. We all know its because that is snow and charming but in real life its getting old her intervening because without her revealing who she is its getting kinda tiresome watching her intervene for really no reason. Cant wait to see next week
What if the potion is like the apple in the movie. He will kiss her and that will make her remember?
Awesome! I too was thinking that the writer was actually the writer of the Story itself! In fact during the scene a half of second before he opened the case I thought to myself...it's a typewriter! It was something telling about the flow of his words and his word choices when speaking to Emma. Leather jackets and motorcycle aside he had a flow with words that was very telling.I like him already.
Who knew there was another dwarf?I rather liked Stealthy. Also loved the bond Grumpy and Snow immediately formed. Snow and Charming and Mary and David are just so compelling that I can't take my eyes off the screen when they are on!
Can I tell you how much I love this show??? I love how the fairy tales I grew up with have a back story. I NEVER saw the potion being used aspect of the storyline coming!!!! UGH! There are SO many layers to this story and that's what makes it good. Every week a different layer is added. One week we see Jiminy Cricket's plan go horribly wrong and the next week we see the dried up couple sitting in Gold's shop. Just creepy enough w/o going overboard.
I like the idea of the mystery man being either Rump/Gold's son or one of the Grimm's. Either way I see him having an important role.
