It was a good episode. I guess the writers are saving the meeting with the actual Baelfire for the future. I wonder how Gold can be sure that this is the world he ended up in?
I'm glad that the "Dark One's" powers don't work in Storybrooke, but I still say Gold's insistance that magic doesn't work there goes against what we've seen Regina do to the sheriff, by squeezing his "heart".
August's frustration and disgust with Emma's lack of belief was evident in his remarks to Gold. But, Emma doesn't believe in magic, and would be likely to rationalize away anything she sees that doesn't correspond to her belief. I wonder if he'll make any progress with her next week.
