Once Upon a Time: Dissecting those finale Easter eggs

Once Upon a Time opened up a new avenue for storytelling in the season 5 finale by introducing the Land of Untold Stories.

Whose untold stories are they exactly? Aside from the obvious Jekyll (Hank Harris) and Hyde (Sam Witwer), the powers that be at OUAT dropped a few hints during the two-hour finale. We try to dissect them below:

Don Quixote
While flipping through the storybooks discovered in the New York Public Library, Henry comes across a photo of a rider on a horse, with a windmill in the background. The text on the opposite page hails from The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, the story of the hidalgo Don Quixote, who sets out to revive chivalry with his squire Sancho Panza.

The Water-Babies
Also in the new storybook is a page of text pulled from The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby, a mainstay of British children’s literature. The story of morality follows a young chimney sweep transformed into a water baby as he embarks on a journey of repentance in order to become human again.

Gulliver’s Travels
Depicted in Henry’s new storybook, Gulliver’s Travels tells the story of a surgeon who, after getting caught in a storm, washes up on an island filled with tiny people roughly six inches tall, making him a giant among men.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
Captain Nemo makes an appearance in the storybook, seemingly outside his creature-like submarine, the Nautilus, which he uses in the novel to roam the world in search of scientific discovery during his self-imposed exile from humanity.

Paul Bunyan
The giant folk hero and lumberjack of American lore is recognizable in Henry’s storybook by his companion, Babe the Blue Ox.

The Three Musketeers
Easy to spot in the Land of Untold Stories, the trio of swordsmen are among the elite French guard depicted in Alexander Dumas’ historical novel.

Knight of the Holy Grail
Briefly spotted in the Land of Untold Stories, the Grail Knight may have gone unnoticed if not for the fact that the Holy Grail was used to destroy magic in the finale.

Blink and you’ll miss them in the Land of Untold Stories. Cowboys appear on either side of Dr. Jekyll, begging the question: What story did they come from?


Who am I?
That is the age-old question
Asked by every man
At one time or another.

Though he looks into a mirror
And recognizes the face,
Though he knows his own name
And age and history,
Still he wonders, deep down,
Who am I?

Am I a giant among men,
Master of all I survey,
Or an ineffectual pygmy
Who clumsily blocks his own way?

Am I the self-assured gentleman
With a winning style,
The natural born leader
Who makes friends instantly,
Or the frightened heart
Tiptoeing among strangers

Who, behind a frozen smile, trembles
Like a little boy lost in a dark forest?

Most of us yearn to be one,
But fear we are the other.
Yet we CAN be
What we aspire to be.

Those who cultivate
Their natural instincts,
Who set their sights
On the good, the admirable,
the excellent,
And believe they can achieve it
Will find their confidence

And, in the process,
They will discover the true
Of him who looks back from
the mirror.
