I’m glad Zelena’s gone too. If the shoe had been on the other foot, and Zelena had been Rumple’s sister and killed Henry and Rumple did the give her a second chance, you just know that Regina would’ve killed her before she ever reached the cell. It’s easy for Regina to give Zelena a second chance because Zelena didn’t take away one of the most important people to Regina or force Regina to do things against her will for kicks. Zelena ordered Rumple to kill Belle, right after Rumple had to absorb Neal to save him, just because she could not because Belle was a threat. Rumple could’ve potentially lost the 2 people that mean the most to him, just because Zelena could make him do it.
Rumple was going for the kill before Regina stopped him with the dagger and gave her hypocritical “heroes don’t kill” speech. But again, Regina hadn’t suffered at Zelena’s hands like Rumple had.
Exactly. I have no doubt that Regina would have killed Zelena if she had killed Henry. Yes, it seems that Regina is becoming a better person, but it’s easy to be good and nice when everything is fine and you get everything you have dreamed of..
We don’t know what’s going on in Rumple’s head. But it’s very likely that Rumple focussed on the thought of enacting revenge on Zelena to get him through his enforced servitude. His revenge is what sustained what little free-will he had left. Rumple wasn’t thinking rationally when he enacted his revenge on Zelena so now he is trying to cover up what he’s done because he doesn’t want to risk losing Belle. However, by doing so, he’s only digging a deeper hole for himself.
It’s they lying to Belle that’s going to cause the tension between RumBelle next season rather than Zelena’s death IMO. I also think that Rumple will confess to Belle about his lies either willingly because he can’t face lying to her anymore, or a situation will arise where he is forced to tell the truth.
Agreed. And I do hope Rumple will confess of his own accord, rather than being forced to it because Belle faced danger and tried to summon him with the fake dagger..
I’m optimistic that RumBelle will resolve this issue together. Rumple is sometimes going to fall off the wagon, just like Regina has done in the past and will probably do in the future in some form. Belle is not going to give up on Rumple just because he’s screwed up. Is she going to be angry? Definitely. Disappointed in him? Most likely. But is she going to call it a day and be done with him? No.
I agree again. Hearts will be broken and there will be angst, but they will survive this.
Am I the only one who is bothered by Belle not talking about the elephat in the room? This was the first time he was free since THE LOSS OF THE CENTER OF HIS UNIVERSE (in RG’s words) its not like he, like the rest of them had time to mourn or even bury him. Where was he while belle was throwing shovelfuls of dirt into his child’s grave? Oh, right, he was being tortured in his cage.
I have to admit that it did bother me a bit. I think she is perhaps feeling a little guilty about Neals death, and that’s why she isn’t able to talk about it just yet. Later, probably. At least I hope so..
