I agree. In the OUAT universe, Rumpel and the Beast are the same person with the same destiny.
I completely agree. So do you think this means he will end up with Belle, but also die (like in the original Rumple story)!? I am hoping the writers give us a happy ending because they do always tweak stories. 😉
Hard to say…..does anyone really want him to die? He did not start offm evil but gain power which turned him evil. He did these things for a greater good through his experience. Look at his story and ask is he totally evil? Does he go to others to make these deals or does everyone go to him? He does give them an out but he like they do know that the reason they come is to deal and not leave empty handed. Those who have gone to him do not help themselves by returning to he. Not saying those who go to him are bad but they feel that ther is not other way. If they realize the other side of the coin which is one and the same as the one presented to them by Rumple before going to him will the situation be different? Maybe or maybe not but if they do go to him they have obligated themselves to him.
