In this episode, Rumplestiltskin's son's name is Baelfire, who at one point speaks to his friend, a young woman in blue named "Morraine." This is possibly a connection to Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, in which "balefire" is a powerful magic weapon, and one of the first users of "balefire" is a young woman "Moiraine," who is known for wearing blue.
