Neal and Belle…..nah. Won’t happen. They’ve made it quite obvious that Belle and Rumple are True Loves. Neal Loves Emma.
When it comes to LOST (HUGE LOST fan here :))……..that was not an “anything goes” kind of show. Everything that happened in that intricate weave of a plot was for a reason. If it didn’t drive the plot forward or add to character developement, it wasn’t there.
Neal and Belle as love interests…..has no place in the show because there’s no reason for it.
The foreshadowing of Emma and Neal reuniting was in the Geronimo Jackson (LOST nod) sticker prominantly displayed on Emma’s car at the end of S3E11….just as it was in the the S1 finale and the S2 premiere.
