That’s true. But I don’t think Belle will move on within the span of a year–and certainly not with her TL’s son.
Not ever, IMO (I think she and Gold (or Snowing) would (on their own) live their life, but they wouldn’t move on with someone else……I firmly believe that. Gold mourned her for 30 years and chose to forget (the curse) for 28 in large part because he couldn’t handle the grief, the pain, the sheer agony of Belle’s death. I think Belle would feel the same way……..
As to Neal, if this ever happened, and I think there’s a better chance that I become President, I’d become an ex-Rumbeller. and an ex-Belle fan. I could never support Belle ever again as a character and I would want better for Gold. I think most, if not all, Rumbellers, would be absolutely disgusted.
