P.S. it could be a parallel time line....with only Henry And Emma growing up.

Remember, any time someone asks anyone in Storybrooke a question about that, such as "how did you meet", or whatever, they can't process it, but it doesn't strike them as odd. Whatever is your normal IS normal, so why WOULD they notice that they don't age if NO ONE ages. It's not that much of a stretch to say that they wouldn't notice Henry b/c it seems to me that part of the curse was making them oblivious to the things that would call out the alternate reality. Think about it: unless someone told you and really CONVINCED you you were in the Matrix, would you really see signs everywhere? Of course not.

Mr Gold is a wounded animal right now, and we know all about wounded animals....Regina has been on a role, somethings going to break.
It's hard to believe how truly evil Regina/Queen is.

This is just my take on the time dilemma: I think that time in the fairy-tale world might have been running at a different pace as the rest of the world. Also - do we know how long the people of storybrooke have been in our world? Maybe it isn't 18 years, but shorter. There's still the problem of Henry aging, I admit that I don't have anything to explain that, but I still think that the townspeople have not been in our world for 18 years. (The writers will undoubtedly explain it all eventually.)

I thought this was a great episode. I was skeptical going in as Beauty & the Beast is my favorite Disney movie, but the moment she chipped the cup I was all in. Loved the shout out to the "old woman selling flowers". The scene in the jail was fantastic, best scene of the episode imo! And Mr. Gold used the power of 'please' twice this episode! Loved it! I cannot wait until he finds out that Regina is keeping Belle locked away in Storybrooke -- though I'm curious how he couldn't tell she was lying about her death back in Fairytale Land. I feel like Regina is really setting everyone up. She's confirmed that Gold knows everything, so she knows what she has to work around. She set up Emma last episode, and it looks like she's messing with Mary / David next week (though David is doing a good enough job messing with Mary all on his own. Man up Charming!) It really feels like they're buildng to something with Regina. I need our good guys to realize it and start moving against her as well.

Great episode. I loved the fact that these villains are not one dimensional. Even though she makes it very hard, there are moments I have sympathized with the Evil Queen (and then she does something that makes me hate her all over again). Now with Rumpelstiltskin we get to see him as a man and not just a monster. I believe now that the Queen has confirmed, he knows everything, she will use Belle as a pawn against him, possible forcing his allegiance to her, as a bond made with Rumpel is a bond for life. They really need to wind up the Snow/Mary Charming/David story line, as this one makes David look like a complete idiot and a coward.

Ditto on "Chip" and the chipped teacup! LOL.

I agree. There are so many things in storybrooke that are just plain head scratching, I am surprised that Emma doesn't believe Henry yet just cause things there are so different from everywhere else. There must be something about Henry aging and no one else that Regina has managed to cover up. Why would she want to adopt a child when she knows no one will age but him? Why draw attention yourself? And speaking of that, how did Henry come to be there if no one can leave? How did mr. Gold leave? I love the show and am hoping some explanations are given.
And I love belle and rumple. She will be the key to mr. Gold/rumple, and I don't think she is dead in fairy tale land either. I think Regina locked her up like in storybrooke hoping to have something rumple wants. It seems that is the key to their animosity...Regina wants to be as powerful as rumple.

The writers present mysteries they don't know the answers to. They try to make it up as they go just like they did with Lost. This is a horrible way of writing and usually ends up with a lot of loose ends that were never tied up due to the impossibility of tying them up.

Who wrote the book? How did he know everything from The Huntsman's heart being taken to Snow White's daughter being transported to Earth?

Why doesn't Regina just kill Emma? She obviously has no problem with killing anyone. And even if Emma is "magically protected", why hasn't Regina at least tried considering she knows nothing of Emma's identity?

Why has Henry aged and no one else has? How has no one noticed?

These questions, along with many more, won't ever be answered. Just like Lost, the setup is very interesting and could perhaps even be confused with "genius", but once its time to start answering questions, it starts being ridiculous.
