Is it necessary to watch the rest of the show to understand Sebastian’s episodes?
No. All you really need to know is that the town of Storybrooke, where the show takes place, is inhabited by people who are under a spell. They are all originally from another land, where they have alter egos as fairy tale characters. The spell makes it so that none of them remember their previous lives - except for Jefferson and one or two others.
Jefferson, like the other residents of Storybrooke, Maine, is stuck there due to a curse, and cannot leave. He is one of the few people in town who knows what is truly going on. His own daughter doesn’t even remember him. He’s desperate to find a way back to the other world, and back to his daughter.
