Their happy moment won’t last. You can see it a mile away. Their relationship will die because his need for power is much more than his need for love. Maybe that will change with Belle, but blah….he didn’t learn his first lesson with Bae.
I was surprised to see him going for the magical powers. Initially I was kind of disappointed the writers went there with his character, but thinking about it some more, it’s setting up some juicy Rumbelle stuff for the future. I can’t see her being thrilled with it if he goes down that path again. To give them an instant happily ever after would have been a bit boring. If he wants her love again, he’ll hafta earn it.
Although it did feel like too much progressed too fast…I think this is a way for the writers to satisfy the Rumbelle fans right away..and then really dig into the plot for season 2..ofcourse exploring the theme of love vs. power as it would seem.
Yeah, they couldn’t exactly dedicate the entire episode to them, which needs to happen in the future so they can flesh out their relationship. But if they weren’t reunited at all by season’s end, there’d have been a whole lotta unhappy fans.
