In the beginning of the series, I found Rumple transfixing, couldn’t take my eyes off him. His energy and his ability to read people’s souls are sexy to me, plus the fact that it’s RC. But I found Gold sexier until “Skin Deep” showed us the other side of Rumple. That sort of dance he does as he tries to keep a distance from Belle, but yet can’t resist sitting beside her…the way he watches her, admiring yet respectful…the way he really listens to her…and when he leans in and whispers, “Why did you come back?” and you can see how vulnerable he is at that moment…all of it is so sexy that the skin and the teeth become beautiful because they’re part of what makes him Rumple. Do you know what I mean?
