I am really not passing judgment easily. I just don’t see what Rumpel has done that is good, trading babies, killing people, and especially if he is the causer of the curse. I don’t really want to talk about Rumpel though. I am really trying to stay out of his thread because it just makes me not like the character. And i think the character is too interesting to not like him.
Emma lost her parents. Grew up alone and because of that she didn’t think that she could take care of Henry, so she gave him up too. Both Emma and Henry have been harmed by the curse, in my opinion.
And it really does seem to me like Regina and Rumpel are friendly enemies. Like they are never going to be real friends because they are people of power and they don’t have friends, but they are not exactly enemies either and know each other well. So what is between them? Just because Regina told Belle how to break the dark one curse on Rumpel? That doesn’t seem like enough to me either. If they are going to be some sort of ultimate enemies like Harry vs Voldemort then there has to be more to it then this.
