Why would they hint at any scenes for RumBelle when they won’t even admit Rumple’s alive? Rumple’s fate is a huge spoiler right now. There is no way they are going to tell us any more than they have on when and where we will see him again- including when he’ll be with Belle. So it’s pointless to make any assumptions based on what they’ve said so far. I think we are going to see RumBelle flashbacks in episode 15. Since they told us we aren’t going to see Pre-Rumple Belle and we know Belle and Lumiere are featured in 15, it’s a pretty decent bet. Or if it’s a flashback to that missing year, perhaps Belle is seeking Rumple. Even if they aren’t physically together in the present day that won’t mean we won’t see them in the past or that they won’t play a part in each other’s present day story. We were just talking about how lovely their relationship was in Dark Hollow when they were in different realms. Don’t start taking speculation as fact- you’ll give yourself a migraine. They have left it completely open as to when we will see RumBelle again. I’m far more excited to see Belle get more of a story than I am worried about seeing RumBelle together though.
All good points, Angie… Even though I’m skeptical because A/E have always said Belle will have story, I DO have a feeling that this time it’s different.
I think Belle will meet Lumiere in the year that was past in FTL, so I hope we’ll get Belle remembering times in the DC. I’m dying to see their friendship, but also the awkardness that must have arisen after they realized the intensity of their feelings.
I also have to remember that A/E said twice (December and January) that Rumbelle would be explored -remember the famous “whatever state that’s in”? LOL So…maybe Belle will try to save Gold IF he’s under the WW control or he’s the DO again or whatever. That would be fantastic…… as long as (a) they get a proper, LONG reunion and (b) they are not torn apart AGAIN at the end of S3. I admit that I don’t like the idea of Gold being controlled or his being the DO again at all…….. He worked so hard to change and this is what he has to suffer through? It’s cheesy…..and I don’t have this fascination with DO Rumple (really DO, like early on) that so many do.
Stelio, that’s a great point. I really REALLY want Belle to put her foot down and make it known to everyone that she won’t be ignored and she’s going to make sure that Gold is remembered.
I’m tired of being miserable, I hate it. I want to enjoy what’s coming up…..My problem is that I’m always looking ahead and I worry about them being separated again. I can’t imagine A/E will go there, though……….I suppose it’s not worth even thinking about just now, lol
