Quotes

Emma Swan: You've clearly glommed onto my kid Henry's thing. They're just stories! The Mad Hatter is in Alice in Wonderland, a book - a book I actually read.
Jefferson: Stories. Stories! What's a story? When you were in high school, d'you learn about the Civil War?
Emma Swan: Yeah, of course.
Jefferson: How? D'you read about it, perchance, in a book? How's that any less real than any other book?
Emma Swan: History books are based on history.
Jefferson: And storybooks are based on what? Imagination. Where does that come from? It has to come from somewhere.

Another interesting episode and a great back-story to Mad Hatter
1 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hat Trick does a fine job in continuing where the episode left off with Mary Margaret escaping from prison only to be captured by Jefferson, who turns out to be the Mad Hatter in the Enchanted Forest. My only quibble is that it did drag a bit too long and took a while to get going, but that's about it.

The story's still well-written, the script's fine, the acting's still good, the music score is solid, the direction is crisp, and the Mad Hatter's back-story remained interesting and it made me feel sorry for him that he had to work for the Evil Queen to help find an apple only to get betrayed and will never see his daughter again and is trapped in Wonderland (setting up a spin-off that would come a year later). So, overall, another interesting episode and a great back-story to Mad Hatter. :)
