Most characters don't turn back to themselves after magic is brought back and the curse lifted :
- Mr. Gold doesn't turn back to Rumplestiltskin
- Archie Hopper doesn't turn back to Jiminy Cricket
- Maleficent remains in dragon form
- The fairies are still nuns
However, some characters regain their shapeshifting abilities (Ruby for instance).
Is this due to some left overs from the curse? Is magic insufficient to fuel back everyone to their real form ? Is this because the influence of the real world is too strong ?
I searched a bit about this and didn't find any "official" answer from the show crew, and I can't remember if it's been explained in the show itself.
Any idea ?
