Rumple/Gold is like the Severus Snape of OUAT – I don’t think we are going to know if he is good or bad until the end when he proves himself. For now, I have to agree that he is playing both sides to get what he wants. I can’t believe he is working with Regina, at least not completely. I think perhaps, like the fire that caused Emma to be Sheriff, Gold does things knowing how they will turn out in the end. Perhaps this is just a way to convince Regina that he is more with her than Emma – or perhaps we are going to see Gold fail at MM trial and work with the EQ for a short time. Regina knows he is cunning – I believe she realizes he is about as trustworthy as her. And we have no idea it wasn’t Rumples idea for the hatter to find the escaped MM. He could have tipped him off and we don’t know it yet.
So many questions, so little answers! But thats what i love about the show – being caught on the edge of your seat at the end of each episode! 😀
