“Lawrence” has gotta be Lumiere. How will he fit into this story though? Did he perhaps work for Rumple before Belle? And then Rumple turned him into a candlestick, but not before he’d told Rumple about Belle, who Lumiere knew of because he’s from her town/kingdom?
“Sources say it’s unlikely,” doesn’t necessarily completely rule out the possibility of the Black Fairy being WWW, but it certainly calls the theory into question. Hmmmmm.
