I hope when Baelfire enters the series this’ll be a more dynamic character…and someone to give Mr. Gold a real opposition. In the same breath..I wonder why the writers chose to approach the reveal this way and have Mr. Gold throw all his emotions wide open. I guess this shows how much he really does believe in “love” and can wait even centuries to be reunited with his son…and to be able to hold out hope for that long..WOW! Maybe, this is also a primer for us when the time comes he finds out Belle is actually alive in Storybrooke.
If/when Bae does finally show up, wouldn’t he be about 300 years old?
