I do think Cora managed to seduce him or they had an affair back then, In their reunion, Rumple looked very uncomfortable and uneasy. He almost didn’t know how to react. You don’t act like that with someone you see beneath you and someone you had wrapped round your finger. Something tells me that Cora knows all of Rumple’s weaknesses and he couldn’t wait to get rid of her because of it. Also, was that the first time someone proposed a deal to him, and not the other way around.
I loved their scene, and so much of the dialog was fascinating. “Darling, I have no reason to cheat you. ” “Not any more”. Is this about baby Regina and the fact that Cora owns him a child, did Cora try to control him before with the dagger, is it on a more personal level, maybe she chose Henry Sr over him (although I don’t really see that happening because the Dark One trumps any man more or less), ….
I really can’t wait for this episode and The Queen Is Dead.
