Assuming that the info about Bobby’s contract is true (I have no idea where it came from but seems to be a generally accepted fact?), I doubt he’d sign on for more beyond that. But Disney may not care, they may want to keep this show going for as long as possible, even if it ends up getting run into the ground. Killing Rumple at the end of Bobby’s contract could be a way for them to bring Neal back in a “life for a life” trade situation where Rumple concedes that Neal never should have given his own life to bring him back, so he sets things right. It’d be a nice redemptive way to wrap up Rumple’s story, and frankly he’s gone so off the rails I think it’d take something massive like that type of sacrifice for him to even be redeemed. He may not get to spend his life with his son like he’d always wanted, but he’d have given his son’s life back.
I actually believe that the end for Rumple is death, i think no longer is possible for him t0 have a happy ending after all characters now know what he is capable, i see Neal/Bae coming back ( yeah im saying this, but wait there is more), but in sense, that like Ingrid, Rumple dying to stop some new villain and meeting Neal/Bae( MRJ or with Dylan) in after life( ah got you, though i was saying alive, dont you, nah) and saying that is his happy ending, like he said on 304 that Neal was his happy ending, and since A/E said after 315 that Neal had is happy ending by dying to save everyone.
Phee, that actually sounds brilliant :O I… I actually really like that… But I doubt they would kill rumple permanently, even if it were the final season. I see Rumbelle as one of the couples who are simply guaranteed a happy ending. If A&E wanted to be edgy, sure they could split them but I doubt that.
I dont see it, in fact i think that while they have new things and even Barbara Barnett on her podcast said that Disney may not cancel OUAT for long time, bc is a chance to sell the brand. So i see them , killing Rumple like i said above and Belle may even get pregnant and her happy ending is in a way with her child or even by seing that she doesnt need a romantic partner to be happy, bc if they have good toys to play, CS, with a bit of OQ and some Snowing behind, there is no problem, at this point i wouldnt be surprise by them to even make some spell to make Henry a baby and this way they are free of Jared as well and so they can make Emma raise Hnery with Hook( yeah, i dont have hope anymore,) since Jane even said they dont bring actors for just one scene, i dont see them bringing MRJ for ghost, like in a vision, for that they can bring Dylan like they done with Cora, i dont see the point of fbs with MRJ, that would be possible in Part A since that was almost Emma arc and since they made all the possible to alienate Neal/Bae and SF fans , for them to sudden say “Hey look who is here”, for that to happened they would have had to show Henry suffering, Rumple trying to change things( not even say Emma, bc i also believe that if MRJ decided to comeback would be for Neal to be alive and bc of Henry and Rumple story line, not bc of SF) and since JMo words that Emma would never move on with Neal alive, there is no way they will bring him to life, to damage their poor shynny toy called CS, my only hope now is that they dont trash Neal name is some stupid retcon about the watches.
