Aw, and Gaston came to save her… and died. And Rumple lied and said it was the old hag from the original story selling a single rose! That was kind of cool but I was still reeling from the murder. That was terrible. Did anyone else cringe when she clipped the stem of the rose?
Everyone keeps implying that GASTON was turned into the rose and his feet are cut off when she clips the rose. (here and other forums)
I thought GASTON had been turned to dust and the sword became the rose. Since the sword was inanimate it could be turned into another inanimate object. Human/ live could only be turned to ashes. … Just my theory and observation.
I just saw the episode not too long ago with my boyfriend. That was my favorite scene from the whole episode, though, Rumple making Gaston go ‘poof’. Except he thought that Gaston became the rose and when Belle cut it, she was cutting him down (she never liked him anyway) — which went along nicely with the Disney movie. Gaston was a big jerk there.
