Accordiing to the above video I thought the person who would be killed was a good guy not a bad guy 😕
Well,yes, they say one of their own will die…
Actually, it says one of their own will “perish”. Perish doesn’t necessarily = die. IMO, perish means Rumple, (one of their own because he’s part of their family) losing the Dark One part of his persona.
The mention of someone dying is in that graphic in the first post, (which the official Once Twitter tweeted as well BTW), but that just says, “one will die”, not “one of their own will die”. It’s a separate thing IMO.
Cora will stab Rumple & inherit the Dark One powers, Snow will use the candle to save Rumple right before he dies, and she’ll kill Cora, which will also cause Dark One powers, now within her, to no longer exist. Cora tells Regina in the sneak peek that if Rumple dies, the Dark One powers will “just boil off into the air, and there’ll be no new Dark One.” So as long as Snow uses a means other than the dagger, (ie: the candle) to kill Cora the new Dark One, that curse will cease to exist.
