Anyone ever wonder how Milah and Rumple met? Looking back at the opening scene of Manhattan, it felt like maybe Rumple and Milah were newly weds and just starting out.
Milah obviously learned the spinning from Rumple. So maybe Milah (probably not looking for a husband) signed up as an apprentice, he taught her and they fell in love. It would also be an interesting parallel to Rumple’s relationship with Cora. Because he taught her dark magic and they fell in love in the process.
