Emma: Have you been reading Henry's book?
Jefferson: Henry -- you mean the Queen's father?
Emma: Henry, the Mayor's adopted kid.
Jefferson: Oh, Henry. Your Henry, and his book of stories, the ones you choose to ignore. Maybe if you knew what I know, you wouldn't.
Recapper: SQUEE! Ahem. Sorry. Anyhow, Emma asks why Jefferson has been spying on her. He walks behind her, aims his gun at the back of her head, lowers it and tells Emma he's been stuck in this house for the last 28 years. Each day was the same until she came to town, but then the clock started moving and things started to change. He knows what she refuses to acknowledge. She's special and she's brought magic to Storybrooke. Emma gently tells him he's insane.
Jefferson: I'm talking about what I've seen. Perhaps you're the one that's mad. What's crazier than seeing and not believing? That's exactly what you've been doing since you got to our little hamlet. Open your eyes. Look around. Wake up. Isn't it about time?
Recapper: Yes. Yes. A million times, yes!
Emma:: What do you want?
What Jefferson wants is for Emma to make him a hat that works. He tells her she's the only one who can do it. He's more vague than this, but I used up all my patience this week referring to him as "the man" until he finally introduced himself.
We cut to the inside of the magical hat, which is like a room between worlds. There are doorways of different colors and styles. Jefferson leads Regina to a looking glass door. He tells her they must stick together. The same amount of people who go through must come back. "No more, no less. It's the hat's rule, not mine." Jefferson puts his fingers up to and then through the looking glass. It ripples like water. He walks through. Regina follows him into Wonderland. Thick blades of green grass and enormous mushrooms tower over their heads. The sky is impossibly blue. They stop next to a particularly huge mushroom. While Jefferson sneers and nods in contempt, Regina gasps. Atop the mushroom is a giant, hookah smoking caterpillar. Roger Daltrey provides the caterpillar's voice and asks the musical question, "Who are you?" He blows smoke rings at Jefferson and Regina and adds, "Who? Who?" Jefferson spits that he hates Wonderland. Me too, brother! And? That's all we get of Daltry, who matters not at all to the story. I can't explain all the hype surrounding his role. I'll tell you one thing though, I won't get fooled again. (Yeah, I know, I already said all that in the recaplet. I'm a hack with a bad back, a stomach bug and a fondness for The Who.)
