I read these same tweets, and agree that we may be seeing Belle In the finale! Which leads me to wonder if someone is going to find out about Regina’s little hiding place for her. Not necessarily Gold (though I want it to be him – Belle should not be kept from her beast!) but someone who may casually mention it in the future to Gold, just in passing. Or perhaps they exchange the information for something in return? One of Golds/Rumples famous deals.
What if the favor Emma owes Gold is going to be to get Belle out of the prison she is in. As the sheriff, she has the greatest ability to explore the town with little repercussions (not counting Regina of course). All she may need is some law excuse to search the hospital and bam, Belle is found.
Hmm, there is a lot to think about. Either way, I just hope we do get to see her – I want Belle to become one of the more recurring characters on the show!
