Now with all that is said. What if the deal Emma made with Gold is to have her leave and never return. After all Rumple did say to Cinderella I will get you baby in this world or the next, no one breaks a deal with me. The new deal struck is to negate that one so the consequences are not going to be light. It is not going to be for half a sandwich or any favor that he can do himself. He is not going to use this deal up for a petty thing it is going to be major.
I was thinking about this the other day & I think he’ll use it to be pardoned- after all Emma is the princess of SW/PC kingdom & she’s an adult so will have a say- if they stayed in SB then she’s Sheriff so is still the only one who he can get to let him off the hook when everyone remembers – he out right said he hates being in a cage.
