Here’s my theory:
PP knew Rumple as a boy. PP was abandoned and was friends with Rumple. When Rumple was abandoned by his father PP suggested they run away together to Neverland ( a place he heard the fairies talking about). Rumple goes, then Pan turns evil so Rumple wants to leave and PP lets him. Meanwhile Rumple’s father father’s Killian Jones. Pan gets Killian as a child and finds out that he has the same dad as Rumple. And now, only Pan knows Hooks and Rumple are half brothers.[adrotate group="5"]

Something else I noticed during my rewatch:
At one point PP makes a joke about a little guessing game. Rumple’s traditional story is all about guessing games."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"October 21, 2013 at 12:51 am #217608kfchimeraParticipant
I think I like the idea they are not brothers by blood but from the spinners, and that somehow Peter got mixed up with fairies. That will partially ex[lain why Rumple is so convinced fairies are evil.

Raise your hand if you believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that Rumple and PP are brothers.
Oh fine, I’m raising my hand. As much as I’ve been unsure of this theory, it seems to be true. My primary reason for resisting was I thought Henry’s family tree was convulted enough, but after a certain point, why bother resisting? Why NOT make Peter Pan the frozen-in-time great-uncle of Henry?

yes it makes the family tree even weirder. But it explains a lot – and nice catch on the guessing game thing. I pricked up my ears at that one while watching but forgot about it when I was on the forums earlier.October 21, 2013 at 2:14 pm #217768thelonebamfParticipant
schandlich, I’m with you. While I can’t deny there is very likely a “brotherly” connection between the two- I don’t think they are biological brothers. With all the wars and conflict between kingdoms, it’s not impossible for an orphan from another country (different style of name and accent) to have ended up in the home of a kindly couple who had not (yet) had a son of their own.
We have so many blood ties in this show, I think we’re due for another step-family connection.

Do you think if Rumple is vulnerable enough Rumple will join with Pan…If Pan just pushes Rumples buttons rightOctober 21, 2013 at 2:27 pm #217782SlurpeezParticipant

No, not unless PP offers Rumple a deal: Neal’s life in exchange for Henry’s. PP is sly, and Rumple so far can’t resist making deals.

I was thinking Pan would make a deal to protect Rumple…especially if my theory of Rumple being the cowardly little brother as a boy and Pan being the protecting older brother. Because for some reason I want Rumple to be the younger brother to Pan. So if this whole brothers theory plays through which I hope it does, Pan will once again be protecting Rumple but this time from Henry who’s is said to be Rumple’s “Undoing.”.October 21, 2013 at 7:59 pm #217877BelleOfTheBallParticipant
Raise your hand if you believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that Rumple and PP are brothers. Cause yes. After tonight…our headcanon is totally on.
*Raises hand and waves around frantically*
I’ve been curious about this theory since I read some different points of view on it, and it was on my mind while watching the whole episode tonight and I just couldn’t deny the brotherhood feels. The amount of clues tonight to their relationship was kind of overwhelming.
I like Peter being Mamastiltskins’d first child and running away to Neverland just like in the original story. When baby rumple came along and Peter was forgotten, the jealousy must have driven him crazy. Perhaps he originally parted with his shadow so it could follow Rumple around – kind of report on the life Peter should have had? Probably not but I am trying to think of a different use for the shadow than just taking boys from their homes.
Yup! So brother! On the name thing I teach a student who is an identical twin. He is called Glenn and his brother is Wolfgang. He hates that he has the normal name so I call him Glenn CoCo.
A+++ FOR YOU. Please tell me when he answers a question in class you respond with “You go Glenn CoCo”
