Top 5 Plot Holes on "Once Upon A Time"

Is it any wonder that the creators of LOST have us once again scratching our heads? But the 'write as we go' method seems to be working out, partly because the first season was so good that we're already invested in the characters...and some of us are still hoping a certain Sheriff will return permanently *ahem.*

However, there are some plot holes that are too glaringly ridiculous to ignore.

#1. If Regina is the daughter of Cora and a Prince, she would already be royalty. So why did Cora plan and execute an elaborate plan (ie: kill another Queen, spook little Snow White's horse etc...) when Regina was already set to inherit a kingdom?

#2. Where did the "Once Upon A Time" story book come from? Mary Margaret gave the book to Henry, but where did she find it?

#3. How did Hook find Neil's apartment so easily? He just happened to defy the laws of physics and sail to New York from Maine in a day? And then he just happened to find Mr. Gold in a city of over eight million people?

What does he have to say for himself?

#4. What is up with Tamara and her super powerful tazer? How can she electrocute and kill a man made of wood? Shouldn't she have set August on fire instead?

#5. So August abandoned baby Emma, then traveled the world for the next twenty-eight years until he ended up in Hong Kong? Did he forget all about the curse until he started to turn to wood?

BONUS! If no one could enter or leave Storybrooke, how did Henry ever manage to get adopted by Regina?

What plot holes drive you crazy about Once Upon A Time?

Haven't seen this series but I can see how these blaring plot holes could be a nuisance. Lost sure wasn't without theirs!! Even tho I loved that show anyway. :)

I'm re-watching some of the first season now - the episode of whatever happened to Frederick. If Storybrooke doesn't exist to the real world, how did Kathryn get accepted to a law school in Boston? Wouldn't the admissions office discarded her application since it's from a non existent town?

I might have missed something since I haven't finished Season 2 and have only read up on Season 3 here, but why would Peter Pan have the Lost Boys be looking for Henry when in the Enchanted Forest timeline, Emma and Henry both haven't been born yet? (During Belfire's first visit.)

Thanks, Kim. I know, right? I mentioned that very issue on my post for the season 2 finale.

1.) If the Storybrooke townspeople don't age, but Henry came from outside Storybrooke, wouldn't he notice that he was the only 1 aging? Especially in his class of other children? Are they all stuck in the same grade in school? How does he fit into that scenario?

2.) The town line can't be crossed at a certain point in the road out of town, or the townspeople lose their true identities. But what about by water? This is a coastal town! How far from shore would they have to travel outside their port before they had the same problem?

My question is the whole timeline with Hook. If he supposedly was in Neverland before he was a pirate and Baelfire was there, how did he later go about falling in love with Milah, Baelfire's mother, if Baelfire hadn't even been to Neverland yet at that point? Maybe I just missed something in the plot, but this is really bugging me
