I mean this is the man who has been manipulating a lot of things for over 300 years in order to get to this land, even going so far as morphing a pure soul into being his monster to cast the curse, he created. When the curse broke, everyone went straight for Regina, but bypassed Rumple along the way, the man who created the curse in the first place.
To be fair, though, Rumple also created the Savior who would brake the curse. He did it for selfish reasons, but he’s still the one who made sure Emma would be the Savior. Regina wanted to kill baby Emma…
The point is…a lot of this occurred because of Rumpelstilskin, but he doesn’t necessary deserve all of the blame. Must I bring up all the damage Malcolm did to his son, so Rumple really didn’t have a great example growing up.
I’ll agree with you. Rumple is pretty much responsible for the show as a whole if we sit and think about it. But he’s a victim of his father and his fate as well. Doesn’t excuse a lot of what’s he done, but it does help us understand him.
And to be honest…now that Neal’s dead, I don’t know what Rumple will do now. Work through this Zelena Murder mess, and try to be a grandfather for Henry. That’s the best I cancome up with. Oh yeah, and of course we need his intellect for whatever force we’re facing in S4
I need some Henry/Rumple scenes. Henry is so much like his father and I want Rumple to see that and to bond with him. I really don’t want the writers forgetting that Henry and Rumple are related.
