Well well!  Bunch of new mysteries here. August W. Booth writing? filling in? Henry's book is most intriguing. Prince Charming isn't very in the "real" world, and, poor Mary Margaret!  Meanwhile, Abigail / Catherine turns out to be pretty decent.

I have no sympathy for Mary Margaret she knew David was married all along, but then as I said I really don't like this version of Snow White IMO she's not a good person. And I have to wonder just what Ausgust Booth's game is and why he copied Henry's book. But this one did make me feel sorry for Abigail/Catherine prior to this she wasn't too complex of a character.

Well, that's not entirely true, I don't think!  Mary Margaret got hyped up on this because of Henry's insistence that this was her true love, and because surprisingly, David DID wake up when Mary Margaret started reading to him. And, she didn't know at that time that he was married - he was just the John Doe in the hospital.  It was later that Regina produced his wife.

I loved Kathryn's speech to Regina about how what Mary Margaret and David have is real and she feels like her relationship with him was 'just an illusion'.  

That last part being my favorite part as Kathryn hit upon the real truth even if she did not know it.

BTW that was Frederick who is the gym teacher in Storybrooke who found Kathryn's car.


I was glad to see Red in the fairytale world.  Hoping that at some point she will be getting more story in both worlds.

I think I prefer to see our fairytale characters as human and not such perfect people.  And it's not like Mary Margaret has not been tortured by what she feels for David given the story that Regina/the Queen set up of his being married to Kathryn.  Which btw kept two couples apart in Storybrooke.

August Booth and his motives certainly is a mystery.

August Booth wrote the book, it seems to me. Whether he's anyone else on top of that, such as a fairytale character in his own right (write?), remains to be seen.

My working theory is that he gave Henry an edition that would spur him to look for Emma and provide backstories for Storybrooke residents that he interacted with regularly. Now that phase one is over and time is moving again, author August returns to add more stories. In a meta-sense, he has to come back to do the back nine order--this is ep. 13.

But once Mary Margaret knew he was married she didn't back off and it was a few eps. after David came out of his coma that he was seeing Mary Margaret in 7:15. And as Emma pointed out Mary Margaret was lying to her as well about seeing David, so it's kind of unfair for Mary Margaret to say that David was lying to her as though she was innocent herself.

I'm surprised nobody noticed that Henry was playing Space Paranoids a nice nod to Tron.
