I just don’t get why she loves him. To me it looks like a case of the Stockholm Syndrom.. she said that thing about loving all of him even his darkness ->STOCKHOLM SYNDROM!!! ….. but that’s just me. So Rumplestiltzkin is no baby snatcher on Once he is a bride capturer. lol ! just kidding 🙂
SS is where the victim changes but the captor stays the same. Rumple changes, and Belle learns to see the man he is. It’s not SS. But this isn’t a Rumple/Belle discussion so I’ll leave it there.
No, it has not been answered in the reality of the show, why Emma has such special powers but not others, if that is all what there is to it, what makes Snowing’s love so more truer than any other love. I am not sure the characters can or even should answer that though. Sometimes we settle with an explanation because it is so beautiful and handy on first thought, and we stuck with first thought then, because thinking more about it might raise questions we can’t answer, and that has a tendency to make us feel uncomfortable and so we avoid it fairly often.
I don’t think the writers have an explanation. She needs to be that powerful, so she simply is. I don’t have an issue with the logical “why” Snow and Charming are true love and Emma is the product of that–Jane has said that not all babies born of true love are magical, but some are. She’s the Savior because Rumple made her the Savior.
As to why Snow and Charming: it’s just where the writers started. There is no set “this is why their love is more true than all the others” It’s just super convenient to plot and story.
