I kind of think of him as a computer software designer who sells his software but has created hidden passwords so that he can still get into the system even after he has sold it. He wasn’t the one who enacted the curse but because he created it, he had created ways he could still manipulate his way through it in order to remember. I have no idea how he did it. Maybe that’s what he needed the wand for.
😀 Awesome comparison. There is definitely a loophole in the curse even the Evil Queen wasn’t aware of. but she should have thought of it because he made the Dark Curse.
that’s an interesting theory about why Rumple needed the wand.
