"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
The relationship is not good,” Carlyle tells TVGuide.com. “The father only cares about himself, and he’s a selfish guy. Rumple’s father has the gift of the gab. He’s certainly a gregarious kind of guy; friends of everyone and probably no one. He’s a trickster. He’s a hopeless gambler. So he’s really not someone who is usually fitted for parenting.”
Oh jeez. I am going to hate this guy.
“The boy’s a kind of tagalong,” Carlyle explains. “You find him hanging outside the bar waiting for his father to come out.”
“That’s a moment we can kind of bond over,” Raymond-James says. “‘See, you know what it’s like to have a sh—y father then, too! And it’s hard and maybe I’ve been harder on you than I needed to.’”
Oh God. The feelings. They hurt.
And this is why I love MRJ so much! He totally gets inside of Neal’s headspace and understand where he’s coming from.
