I just don’t see how it is biased to say that the bad guy is a bad guy. And i have no feeling about that of anger or disgust because he is just a character. The word prejudiced just has a lot of connotations of feeling that i don’t think about Rumpel at all because he is just a character on a show and not a real person. I am actually much more disturbed by the Evil Queen and do think that she is always going to do evil. Like whenever she gets too close to a character like Gretel, or Hansel and Gretel’s father, or Kathryn, i am afraid she is going to take their heart and am extremely creeped out when she touches someone like when she grabbed Mary’s hand and when she grabbed her face. It is like when Voldemort hugged Draco at the end of the last HP film.
Whereas with Rumpel you never know what he is going to do partially because we have no idea of his motivation. We haven’t seen enough of his past so we can only guess at this point. We have seen the incident where he became the dark one, but nothing before that. We can only guess based on what they said and based on who he was at the point he became the dark one. I just didn’t see a good man at that point. And it is so hard because i think that episode is so poorly written to even guess. I feel that i am talking in circles. We need more information. Maybe Rumpel will talk about his past in the next episode a bit more.
And maybe at some point they will show his past and what happened with Bae’s mother and what happened with him running away during the war. Or maybe he will just talk about it in the next episode. We will see.
