Emma's red leather jacket has been a fan favorite since we've seen her wear this in the pilot. The color red represents assertiveness, power, and courageousness which are all qualities that Emma has. To Emma, this jacket is like her armor. She tends to wear this in difficult situations, where she feels she needs strength. For example, she wore this jacket in the Season 1 finale "A Land Without Magic" when she finally accepted that fairytales were real, while dealing with Henry under the sleeping curse. Along with her classic red jacket, she also has leather jackets in the colors blue, black, burgundy, and tan.
Emma is usually seen wearing jeans and t-shirts, but on occasion she enjoys dressing up.
"Dreamcatcher" - In Camelot, as Mary Margaret and David attempt to retrieve the Dark One dagger, Emma uses a Dreamcatcher to look into the past to see how Merlin was transformed into a tree. Together, Emma and Regina figure out the critical ingredient they must acquire to free Merlin, but it's a race against Arthur, who does not want Merlin released. Meanwhile, with encouragement from his moms, Henry musters up the courage to ask Violet on a date. Back in Storybrooke, the heroes break into Emma's house hoping to locate Gold, but what they find will give them a glimpse of Emma's end game. Far from prying eyes, Merida sets about the mission Emma has tasked her with and begins molding Gold into the hero they need to draw Excalibur, on "Once Upon a Time," SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

How do you feel about Rumple being Emma's hero?
Gareth: I liked the twist. I had a feeling that Rumple, being a “blank slate”, would play some part in him becoming more heroic and becoming the Saviour, but I had no idea it would be at Emma’s behest. Interested to see where they take this storyline. Poor Gold, he has spent half of the series as someone’s prisoner!
Jim: I think it is an interesting twist. I think it would be fun to see him turn into the "White Knight" we saw in the storybook version that Henry rescued everyone from. I just hope he and Belle can find real happiness at some point.
Allison: I'm actually really excited to see Rumple awake and under the Dark One's thumb. This could make his character entertaining again. Plus, I'm looking forward to seeing how Rumple reacts to Emma as the Dark One. He's been in her shoes, so they could have some pretty interesting conversations. For instance, does Rumple miss the Darkness or does he wish his name was never on the dagger?
Amanda: I think this is a smart move. I love the character of Rumple, but it's been difficult to maintain his storyline without getting repetitive. Giving Rumple a blank slate is full of possibilities. Maybe this will prove once and for all if being evil is in his nature.
Robin: It's an interesting twist, though I'm not sure I buy it. The only way Rumple could be an actual unbiased blank slate is if he had no recollection of his past whatsoever. Does he remember being the Dark One? Does he remember the choice of becoming the Dark One? In any case, I'm willing to suspend logic to see where this goes, and I'm happy that Robert Carlyle will get some good work to do this season. He was so grossly underutilized last time.
