Midnight Dreary, A Chipped Cup and An Empty Heart, I agree with everything you guys just said. Belle has given up a lot to be with Rumpel and she’s behaved admirably throughout this whole ordeal. She knows about Rumpel’s terrible deeds and she’s still sticking around. She has accepted that her true love has done terrible things but she’s trying to help him recover from his darkness. She’s trying to help him become a better man. She doesn’t want to transform him into a different person, she simply wants to help become a better man. Even Rumpel has acknowledge this.
Rumpel was not evil. He used to be a humble single father with dreams of saving innocent children from the ogre wars. This is the true Rumpel. Kind, humble and fatherly. Belle simply wants to help Rumpel return to that. Baelfire wanted the same thing. He saw what the curse did to his father and desperately wanted to reverse it. So, Belle helping Rumpel become a better person is something Baelfire would have wanted. Baelfire would have appreciated that someone still had faith in his father and tried to help him become a better person. Belle and Baelfire were doing the right thing.
