If she is indeed the original power, then she must be made of both light and dark.
This is a really good point and something I hadn’t thought of before.
It had occured to me that if the BF was the Original Power than we might need to start including her in the Rumple vs. Regina power struggle. She obviously doesn’t like Rumple very much and I don’t get the feeling it’s just because she is sweet and loving and all for peace and happiness. If Rumple and Regina are always vying to see who is going to come out on top as the most powerful – why wouldn’t the BF also want to be #1 on the most powerful list? Especially if she was the Original Power.
If the power of the Dark One is passed from one person the next, and Rumple told James that if Snow killed the EQ she would end up as Evil as she was – how exactly did the first Dark One come into existance? I really like the theory that the BF must be made of both Light and Dark magic. She was referred to as the Original “Power”, not the “Dark One” or the “Good One.” “Power” is a generic term.
