Mask☆DeMasque! I am a fan of all geekdom. Currently spazzing over the OUAT fandoms (with Rumbelle at the center). But my heart belongs to Gin from Bleach and Loki of Asgard (Jotunnheim) forever.
So, in Season 4 Episode 1 of OUAT, we see the Sorcerer’s hat from Fantasia. Of course, everyone who has ever seen Fantasia knows this hat, as well as anyone who has just even only seen Mickey wearing it.
I mean, look at that thing. It looks pretty and starry. Holy crap, they’re going to do something awesome with this plot line…. Hopefully. (also, I can’t make gifs, so I took this gif from a post by fairytaleasoldastime. Sorry, and thanks!)
My only thought is, is that in Skin Deep, back so many season’s ago, I saw a hat that looks like the ordinary original version of this, that I believed was this hat until this latest episode.
Are they telling me that this original hat was a coincidence?!? I mean, I guess so, because unless Rumple is happy to have the hat back in his hands, that just means the writers stuck in a random wizard’s hat in Season 1 just for the sake of entertaining anyone who would catch it, and didn’t think they were going to try and use the Sorcerer’s hat later on in Season 4!
Of course, he did recognize the container that it came from, so perhaps, it is the same hat, just more vamped up because it’s a few seasons later, and it’s actually important now…
I apologize for the long rant about the hat. Please tell me I’m not the only one who saw this and thought this! If anyone wants to shoot me down, that’s cool too!
