Something that just popped into my head based on the preview for the next ep. It seems August has the dagger. Maybe Mr Gold will ask Emma to steal it back for him? Though would he go that far, because if she sees it and sees the name on it, she’ll know who he is, and I’m not so sure he’d want that. But if he wants her to start believing in all the fairytale stuff badly enough, maybe he’d be willing to give up his name? Hmmm, not sure I like my theory now that I’ve thought it through, but I’ll still throw it out there, just in case.
You know, since Henry hasn’t figured out who Gold is yet and in the preview it looks like Gold thinks that August is there to kill him I wonder if they will have Gold do something totally unexpected to try to get Emma to start believing. I wonder if they will have her favor be to believe to that he is Rumplestiltskin – since the dagger is in the episode and his name is carved into the knife and all. We don’t know exactly what August added to the book so it’s possible that he added Rumple’s story to the book but Henry just hasn’t read it yet. Maybe he will ask Emma and Henry to read his story. It would be typical for us to think that Gold would ask Emma for something major (for more than half a sandwich anyway 😆 ) so maybe this would be a twist they could throw our way. Depending on exactly what happened to Bae and when he left Rumple he may not know exactly what Rumple is trying to do, so if August is Bae he might not realize that Gold is trying to help Emma. So Gold may need Emma’s help in explaining to August that he has been helping her. If the last thing Bae saw was Rumple killing the guards he may think that Rumple spent his life on killing sprees instead of making deals with people – so he may be back thinking he’s going to kill Gold to protect people from a mass murderer or something.
