I'm very intrigued with Peter Pan being more powerful than the Dark One. Even Rumple admits he wouldn't survive a confrontation with Pan.
That's pretty shocking. I thought the Dark One could not be killed without the special magic dagger. Pan must be a lot more ancient and powerful to be able to do that.
That is the problem for us, they continue to change the rules. He is all powerful, then he isn't. Then he is, now he wouldn't survive. Magic sure seems to work the same in this world per Regina and all the casting, and Rumple pulling out hearts, etc.
Sooooo inconsistent the writers need to stop it. Why didn't Regina use magic to stop the storm? Why didn't she use magic to teleport her when she jumped in the water? Why didn't she use magic to teleport them both to the boat instead of pulling them in by the rope (she teleported the mermaid from the net so it obviously could be done. Why didn't she use magic to levitate the boat (she commented her magic was strong enough to fix the boat so she could do a lot to the boat). Why didn't she use magic to just teleport them all to the island when trouble brewed? Why didn't she use magic to part the wave coming or levitate up or protect the ship. Etc. etc. etc.
