His favor may have something to do with the dagger, but Emma still doesn’t know who Rumple/Gold really is, so how would she know that the dagger is actually his?
Good point. Unless he said, “August has a dagger with my name on it and I want it back,” she wouldn’t automatically jump to the conclusion that it was his name on the dagger.
A lil while ago I had a theory that involved Emma having to guess his name to break the curse, but I’d kind of abandoned it. But that phrase you used, Dorothy, about him leaving breadcrumbs for her, and also what rumplegoldfan said, got me thinking about it again. What if that is what has to happen? And what if Mr Gold decides that now is the time for the curse to break wide open? Maybe that would be his favour? “Guess my name.” Hmmmm.
And yes, that’s a good question, would she still want to be in league with him if she knows who he is and finds out about all his shenangians and just how much trouble he’s caused in his time? Though all of his misdeeds may not be in the book, I’ve suspected he’s not in there at all because surely Henry would have figured out who he is if he was in there. So maybe she would need to see the dagger with his name on it? Then she’d realise, “Wait up, Rumple’s not in the book, but his story is a famous one, so you’d think it’d be included. What gives?!“
