Once Upon a Time

Souls of the Departed - S5-E12

Corrected entry: In the graveyard scene while Emma is summoning Captain Hook, large orange cones billowing with fog smoke can be easily seen. The cones are strategically placed throughout the graveyard to produce the eerie fog sequences but are easily seen in many shots. (00:29:00)

Mary Zoll-Montoya

Correction: This is not a mistake. The Underworld is full of such smoking cones, and they can be seen in several episodes. For example, in the first scene of "Labor of Love", the camera pans to a close-up of a cone, and then goes down the cone, to reveal the underground prison below. The cones seem to be some form of ventilation from the underground levels, where Hades dwells - the pit of hell, so to speak.

Broken - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Snow White, Prince Charming, Emma and Regina are in the sheriff's station right after Regina was attacked by the soul sucker, Charming states that Regina is the only one with a problem. Snow White calls him "David" in disbelief that he'd let her just be killed, though at this time he is no longer David, but James. (00:28:30)

Correction: No, Snow White is actually calling Prince Charming by his real name. As explained in 2-13 "Tiny", Prince Charming's real name is David, the same as his Storybrooke counterpart during the dark curse. As seen in 1-6 "The Shepherd", James was the name of Charming's twin brother, who was adopted by King George. After Prince James died, Charming was forced to take his place, and therefore adopted his twin brother's name. Also, it is worth noticing that even after the curse is broken, Snow White and Prince Charming often refer to themselves, and each other, by their cursed names. It is a way of showing their real and alternate personas coming together.


Skin Deep - S1-E12

Corrected entry: In this episode the evil queen tells Belle that true love's kiss could break the Dark One's curse. Since arriving at Storybrooke Belle and Mr. Gold have kissed many times, and yet the curse is still not broken.

Correction: In 5-02 "The Price", the Darkness itself explains to Emma that true love's kiss will not break the Dark One's curse if the Dark One does not want to give up the power. In this episode, Belle also explains to Hook, that the true love's kiss that she and Rumplestiltskin (Mr. Gold) shared in "Skin Deep" worked at first, but Rumple got scared of a life without power and chose power over love, and the Darkness regained it's power over him forever. As she puts it: "It is no longer a curse when the afflicted wants it."


White Out - S4-E2

Corrected entry: When Anna arrives at Prince Charming's door, she asks if his name is David and he confirms. David is his post-curse name. At that time, he would have gone by James. (00:01:30)

Correction: As explained in 2-13 "Tiny", Prince Charming's real name is David, the same as his Storybrooke counterpart during Regina's curse. As seen in 1-6 "The Shepherd", James is the name of Charming's twin brother, who was adopted by King George. After Prince James died, Charming was forced to take his place, and therefore adopted the name James.


The Doctor - S2-E5

Corrected entry: When the group is approaching the camp at the beginning of the episode, Snow says "All true. Just leave the particulars to us." Even though she is several meters away from the camera, you can see that her lips are not moving. (00:00:35)


Correction: If you listen closely, you can hear that it's actually Emma who says this, not Snow.


7:15 A.M. - S1-E10

Corrected entry: In the diner scene, Emma is talking to Mary Margaret about her stalking David Nolan. After Mary Margaret says he comes in at 7:15 every morning for coffee, Emma adds, "Graham and his wife." Not only are they supposed to be talking about the Nolans, but Graham is dead at this point.

Correction: She actually says "For him and his wife", not Graham and his wife.

The Thing You Love Most - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Emma is evicted from Granny's inn because of a 'no felons' policy. But since Emma was only arrested, and not convicted, she's not a felon.

Cubs Fan

Correction: Granny wasn't talking about her being a felon because of getting arrested in Storybrook, Emma was arrested and convicted as a felon roughly 11 years ago.

Snow Falls - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the horse carriage is ambushed, just as Princess Abigail can be heard screaming "Please, help me", the camera pans downward and a horse wrangler wearing a blue baseball cap can be seen in the lower left hand corner, hiding behind one of the horses. (00:03:20)

The Evil Queen - S2-E20

Cora: Love is weakness. It feels real now, at the start it always does, but it's an illusion. It fades and then you're left with nothing!

Trivia: The tie Henry chooses to go with the suit he'll be wearing to go to work for his grandfather is identical to the one Gold himself wore in Season 1 Episode 8 "Desperate Souls." (00:15:25 - 00:41:10)
