Is Emma the key? Regina is only able to make Jefferson's (Sebastian Stan) hat work when Emma (Jennifer Morrison) grabs her arm. Is Emma the key to restoring magic? We have a feeling it's not that simple, but we do know that after that initial touch, Regina seems to have her powers back, at least to some extent, since she is also about to attack David (Josh Dallas).
And what about Gold? It's unclear exactly how much control Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) has over his powers. He is able to summon the wraith, but we don't see him performing the casual acts of magic that were so common for him in Fairytale Land.
How do you think magic works in Storybrooke? Let us know in the comments below.
