Siege Perilous - S5-E3

Plot hole: To wake Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin from his coma, Emma needs an object that touched him before he became the Dark One. Hook shows her a sword, telling her how he held it to Rumplestiltskin's head and taunted him. However, the sword that Hook shows to Emma, is not the sword that he threatened Rumplestiltskin with in "The Crocodile." The sword that he used to threaten him had a unique, golden handle. When Hook and Rumplestiltskin met again a few years later, Rumplestiltskin took the same sword from Hook and dueled him with it. When Rumplestiltskin vanished into thin air after cutting off Hook's hand, he took the sword with him. The sword that Hook shows to Emma, which Emma uses to wake Mr. Gold, has a black handle with a completely different design, and is the sword Hook carried after the other one was taken from him; he can be seen using it in episodes like "Queen of Hearts", "Lost Girl" and "The Jolly Roger." This means that the sword Emma uses to wake Mr. Gold from his coma never actually touched him at all; however, the spell still works.
