Are you talking about pre-curse Rumplestiltskin? I didn’t see anything in that character that would make me think he was a murderer or a babysnatcher. Or do you think the curse didn’t really change his base character, it just gave him the power to accomplish the evil that had been in his heart from the beginning.
I really hope we get more information on what exactly the Dark One curse does. How much of the person’s original character stays intact and how much is it subsumed by the power/curse? Could a good enough person overcome the darkness and use the power for good? Or is the fact that it is call The Dark One a giveaway that whoever gets cursed is going to get buried under the evil?
Yeah i am talking about pre dark one Rumpel. There was just something about the scene where Bae and Rumpel were talking about his mother that made me think that he might have killed his wife meaning Bae’s mother or that he stole Bae from his mother. I don’t think that the curse changed his base behavior. I think that he was the same a coward and a murderer and he might have been a baby snatcher. We don’t really know though. There was just something about that scene.[/b]
I am thinking that in mid evil times/ dark ages that the over lord could avail himself of any young woman in the relm. Maybe she was taken by the overlord and Brea resulted from that union. Rumple could have been honorable and stood by her…. There were a lot of weird statements made by the soldiers that alluded to a sorid story…. I will have to watch the episode again some time to see if I was under the correct impression.
