Theory of smoke as mentioned by Daniel on the podcast.
Thanks for posting these! Turns out, we were wrong. Jane Espenson had apparently tweeted that Gaston was actually transformed into the flower.
I really liked Jeff and Colleen’s smoke theories.February 24, 2012 at 3:43 am #137586SnickerdoodleParticipant
What I find really funny about Gaston was that he waited a couple of months till he tried rescuing Belle. I assume he was practicing his entrance.
😆 😆 😆 I do not doubt this. It would be completely in character for Gaston to think about how to make his entrance over how he should rescue Belle. 😆
I am totally laughing at that entire notion right now. I totally agree.
My first thought when Belle clipped the rose was also that she was cutting off Gaston’s feet. I ws horrified at the thought, but only because I was thinking he might be returned to his prior self.
I understand from some blog stalking that Jane Espenson who penned this particular episode and did a live chat afterward confirmed that Gaston was indeed turned into the rose — not his sword, nor was he transported. Ahh, de-parting is such sweet sorrow.February 24, 2012 at 4:33 pm #137602SnickerdoodleParticipant
Sorry, you had already revealed the truth about Gaston, and I missed it because I didn’t see page 2 until my post went up 🙂July 14, 2012 at 2:56 am #151747riddleravenParticipant
Poor Gaston. When Belle made her deal with Rumple she said, “My family, my friends… they will all live?” And Rumple said, “You have my word.” That’s the deal. So why does he think it’s okay to poof Gaston?! I guess he “lived” on as a rose but still… And he did it without a second thought! Booo.
By the way, I HAVE to share this: It’s from this this youtube video of the Gaston clip.
♪♪ NO ONE……fails like Gaston
Has petals like Gaston
Adorns the dinner table like Gaston~!
He’s a staple in all of Belle’s de-cor-ating
Oh what a rose!

Ahahaha. I love it! 😆July 14, 2012 at 3:41 am #151752lilredParticipant
Kind of feel bad for Gaston. Sure I laughed when Rumple turns him into a rose, and then cringed when Belle clipped him. I was kind of hoping we’d get a Gaston backstory at some point (what makes this man have such a low self-esteem? Did his overbearing daddy buy him a knighthood? Can he become a better person and maybe even meet HIS true love someday?) I’m probably alone in wondering any of this, but until we see this Gaston act like a completely steroid-using psychotic: I’m hoping he might be used in another fairytale story down the line.

Maybe he’ll show up in Storybrooke with a few toes missing. 😕
I can’t bring myself to hate Gaston, but I think the majority of that is because of the actor. He plays such a sweet guy on Psych that I just see sweet bumbling Buzz when I rewatch “Skin Deep”. I’m hoping he turns back up in Storybrooke.

I find it funny how Rumple turns Gaston into a rose, gives it to Belle, lets Belle clip the rose and put it in a vase on the table then asks Belle what she thought of Gaston.

I may or may not have been all, “OMG, BUZZ!” when I saw him as Gaston. Totally distracted me, it was like watching McNab playing dress up. LOLJuly 14, 2012 at 8:49 pm #151853hjbauParticipant
I think Gaston is dead.July 14, 2012 at 8:55 pm #151855PriceofMagicParticipant
Probably. Though imagine if Gaston did turn up trying to get Belle back again, this time in Storybrooke, and Rumple turned him into something else.
