Peter Pan vs Rumplestiltskin: The Enchanted Forest and 'The Sins of the Fathers'
When Rumple's a young boy, people told him he'd be better off without his father. He didn't believe them. With a magic bean, he and his father got to Neverland - a place all too familiar to Rumple's dad. "Think lovely thoughts," Rumple's father said. But the lovely thoughts weren't enough for Rumple's dad to fly. Rumple's dad let him go because "a child can't have a child." (Did your mind make a fast rewind to Baelfire going through the portal alone because The Dark One let go of him?)
Once the Neverland's Shadow has young Rumple, his dad got cloaked by the island's magic. That's how things begun for the new magical life of Rumplestiltskin's father -- Peter Pan! OUAT 3x08, "Think Lovely Thoughts" reveal just how deeply dysfunctional Henry's family is (has always been)!

The Evil Queen has taught The Saviour well! The Evil Queen, a mentor of magic? Yes, to Snow White's daughter!
