I’m so smart that I remembered Fantasia the first time I saw that hat in the first episode. I can’t even imagine how long ago it was since I saw that movie. The episode started with another Dark One, Zoso, trying to get the box that contained the sorcerer’s hat. It was protect by an older man who was the apprentice of the person who put a spell on that box. The box was only to be opened by someone that was good or one who faced darkness and won or something to that effect. Fast forward to Rumple’s tenure as the Dark One, Anna asks him to tell her about her parent’s journey. They apparently came to see him about how to get rid of Elsa’s powers. In exchange for the information, Rumple gave her a contract and a test. Anna was to take a small vial and pour it in the tea of a man she was sent to find. Of course, her being a good person she didn’t use the vial after meeting the man, who was the apprentice. She went back to Rumple and lied about fulfilling her task. He acted like it was an anecdote and he showed her that he turned into a mouse. She went to see for herself and Rumple toyed with her a bit. He said with the contract she would be imprisoned by him and that she would have to kill him to escape. Anna had the sword to his chest but couldn’t do it. Not like she could just kill the Dark One. She cried and he got one of her tears on his dagger so he could open the box. Once he retrieved it, she accused him of being a monster. The mouse was still alive and jumped from a beam to bite him on the hand. Anna picked up his dagger and commanded him to never hurt her or Elsa, return her back to her home, and turn the apprentice back to a person. He had to since she had his dagger. He threatened her saying she couldn’t hold that dagger forever. When she was sent home, the dagger was left with him. When she returned, she found Kristoff to tell him her parents did leave because of Elsa and they wanted to change her to be normal, but she didn’t know how to tell Elsa.
 
We found out that the sorcerer’s hat had the power to trap magic and if Rumple had it he could be more powerful and possible remove the dagger’s control over him. Back in Storybrooke, Rumple was able to make a deal with Captain Hook. Hook would get his hand back so he didn’t tell Belle about the fake dagger. That seems unfair to Rumple but he planted the seed in Hook’s head saying that his pirate ways may come back. Hook was asked out on a date by Emma but he insisted on planning it. He took her to a nice restaurant (not Granny’s) and lost his temper with The Knave of Hearts who knocked over a waiter and got wine on Emma’s dress. I still want to know how big Storybrooke is. The restaurant had people in it. I guess we only see that 1 street and the woods. The date was good but the whole time Hook was worried about his hand that he used to choke and punch the Knave that night. Emma had a light pink dress on I think. She was so light I don’t know where her, her dress or her hair started or ended, just a blur of pale. He did ask her out on a 2nd date. Her parents were up waiting for her. Hook decided it was too risky to have his hand back so he asked Rumple to take it back. Rumple would only do it if he helped him. Hook agreed. Rumple had Hook come with him, being guided by a broom, to the apprentice’s house (see photo). Once there, Hook was used as the muscle to seat him. Rumple showed him he had the power to obtain the hat even though all other Dark Ones before him had failed. He turned the hat on its side and it drew the apprentice into it (see photo). It looked like a new star appeared in the hat so maybe all those stars are people trapping inside the hat. Who knows? After his work was done, Hook thought they were done but Rumple said they are bound together forever now that he has video of what Hook did to that old man. Also letting him know that his hand wasn’t cursed; he was just using it as an excuse to act like the pirate he used to be. Of course, Rumple wiped himself off the tape.

The Sorcerer’s Hat Consumes The Apprentice


Here are the minor stories that occurred. Snow White (Mary Margaret) and David (Prince Charming) have books listing the people in Storybrooke after each curse in order to try to find Anna. I know Anna is not there. You know she would know immediately that Elsa was there if ice showed up everywhere. The Snow Queen keeps popping up at random times to bait Emma first it was a large puddle under her car and then she let her chase her following an ice trail. Henry is helping Regina find a spell to save Marian and whoever wrote the story book. He knows that true love’s kiss should have saved her so he figured out that Robin Hood must still love Regina. Henry decided to use that fact that he is Rumple’s grandson to get a part-time job in his shop. He hopes to gain information on who wrote the book since Rumple knows everything. I can’t imagine what mess Henry will get himself into this time.
