Magic? Thanks, but No...

Quick TV post while I'm supposed to be doing something else.

Ok, I like ABC's Once Upon a Time. And yes, it is difficult at times to type this post while keeping my parasol and bonnet on straight.

With that out of the way, here's my question:

In the season finale, Rumpelstiltskin is able to bring back Magic to Storybrook, while at the same time the Evil Queen's curse is being broken.

For some of the residents of Storybrook, wouldn't they be better off if the curse wasn't lifted? Off the top of my head, I'd think Red/Ruby would much rather not know that's she's a werewolf who is one enchanted cloak and overprotective Granny away from eviscerating the whole town.

And Jiminy Cricket/Archie? Does he go back to being a bug, which was actually penance for his actions in the fairy tale world?

I'm willing to bet that in the 2nd season, there'll be some folks wanting to get plugged back into The Matrix, as it were.

Quick Confession...

My Intro to Political Research professor has an unsettling resemblance to Carl Karl from Phineas and Ferb.

Thanks for your time.
