Also i have been wondering if Bae is even Rumpel’s son or if he took him from Bae’s mother or killed his mother. Rumpel just seems like he would do anything.
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?
