Hi RumplesGirl! Yay!! Another Rumple lover!! Welcome to the club!! I’m pretty sure my Avatar is Rumple’s “Why did you come back?’ moment. That’s my favorite Rumple moment so far on the show. I even LOVE the sound of his leather squeaking when he leans in before he says it – totally cheesy, I know.
I can’t wait to find out more about Rumple/Gold the rest of this season. He is – BY FAR – my favorite character on the show. I honestly believe he is really good at heart. He never understood what he was getting into when he was trying to save Bae from the Ogre wars and he was tricked into becoming the Dark One. My theory is that somehow the curse has to do with Rumple finding a way to destroy his Dark One curse forever so that no one else will ever have to be cursed with it. Afterall, he was horrified when he realized he had killed a human being and the curse was transferred to him. I don’t believe he really likes having the power and magic but I don’t believe he would kill anyone and curse them to his misery the way the previous Dark One cursed him. I think he wants to keep his power and magic only long enough to find a way to get Bae back and then find a way to destroy the curse. And in some ways I even think that if he did something to hurt the EQ before she was the queen I think that he might even be using the curse as a way to make it up to her in the long run, but it will be one of those things that won’t pan out that way until the end of the series. But, like you, I am Rumple biased!! But, Rumple/Gold could also end up the evil/villian, horrible mass murderer of babies and children on the series and I would probably still love him because he’s Robert Carlyle!!
