I think the purpose of the entire conversation was as Ichabod stated - that we don't know people as well as we think we do. In the writers' zeal to prove their point, plus knock Crane's image of Jefferson off its pedestal, they just threw the information about Sally Hemmings at Crane without any context.

Just FYI to the reviewer, Carissa...Thomas Jefferson did NOT cheat on his wife with Sally Hemmings. Sally Hemmings was born during the marriage of Thomas & Martha Jefferson and would have been 9-11 years old at the time of Martha's death from childbirth complications. According to most accounts, the relationship btw Jefferson & Hemmings began more than 10 years after Martha's death.

I wish (ha!) more people watched this series. It's become a lot stronger over time, and the inside references to OUAT are very clever. This was one of the best episodes yet IMO. Now we know why Jafar is so vicious...it's genetic.

Great point about Pan's own heart, Kimariyan! You're right that there was obviously an empty space in him so Henry's heart could fit right in. We've seen characters exist without hearts (Sheriff Graham, Aurora, Cora). But, as far as we know, it's not possible to cram two into one space. So...where is Pan's original heart, and why hasn't Regina caught on that this is the only way he can be killed?

OMG...Sherlock can be such a little brat when it comes to his brother. He can't seem to help using all his abilities in this petty game of oneupmanship with Mycroft - who is always so smooth, cool and unflappable. I did like how the episode ended very much. Will we ever see the father of these two men? And, who would they cast for such an important character?

I HATE PAN! Last season, it was a mother (Cora) who was the Big Bad. This season, it's a father. While I don't mind season-long arcs, that island was getting claustrophobic & monotonous. I'm glad they're all going back to Storybrooke because being in our world now means many more options for defeating Pan, among them a lot more angry mothers (who he seems to underestimate) and the tendency for little boys to want to grow up. Here's hoping we see that annoying little smirk wiped off his face very soon. Maybe he'll start to age before he can get back to Wonderland.

The actress who played Red now stars in NBC's DRACULA w/Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. So, we won't be seeing her unless her new series is cancelled, or the part is recast.

That has never been explained. I personally don't care if they ever address it because I don't want them to get too far afield of our core characters. If it relates to the history of the main conflict, then address it. If not, they should pass.

Can we just all agree that Melinda May ROCKS? Thank you for another awesome female warrior from the Whedonverse! Looking forward to seeing her story fleshed out.

I don't see anything redeeming in Pan at all. He's perfectly willing to kill his own great-grandson to keep living, even though he knows that's not the natural order of things. He knows, and has known, exactly how Henry is related to him for a long time. Pan has extended his life way beyond what it should be just so he can live like a carefree little boy. But, Rumple has risked his life for Henry's several times, even after knowing what might happen to him. Even more telling, Rumple has risked his life for Belle. Meanwhile, Pan locks up Wendy for a hundred years. Nope...I see NOTHING redeeming about Rumple's father whatsoever.
