It appears that Rumple sacrificed his sanity and remaining hold on the light in order to save Alice from an immortal life guarding the Dark One Dagger. What did you think of this sacrifice? Is there any real way for Rumple to find Belle in the afterlife now? Also, Rumple didn’t actually revert to evil, just looking like the Dark One–how does that work??
Everyone here knows by now how I feel about Rumpel’s death wish, so I won’t mention it any more often than the show does. (I know, for all practical purposes that’s not a limitation.)
Suicidal wishes are as dark as wishes ever get. Rumpel won’t get rid of his darkness by continuing to embrace his death wish.
It’s hugely disrespectful, too, to Belle, for Rumpel to keep insisting that she is the source of all the goodness in his life, that she is the source of his entire capacity to be a good person. That’d be emotional blackmail if Belle wasn’t already dead. As it is, Rumpel is just offloading all of his responsibility to manage his own life onto someone who can’t fight back.
