really this was one of the greatest episodes of OUAT so far. And this was the best line.
I still credit this as THE best line of the show. Jefferson’s writing and line delivery was far and away the best on the show. OUAT is generally a fluffy show that verges on cute more than poignant. Jefferson though…Jefferson was something special. While Killian’s ambiguity is played with more charm and suavity, Jefferson’s moral ambiguity was nothing but ambiguous. He was dangerous and crazy and played with more of an edge than any other character, yet you still liked him because he was a third party observer to so much of what was going on and often had the same reaction as a cynical audience member.
No wonder the writers refused to recast him. Jefferson was unique and my one regret for the show is that he wasn’t a major character.
