Saying that someone’s comment is laughable is insulting……….and I never said they have been depicted as step-mother/step-son.
Oh, whatever at this point – the conversation is not worth continuing. I find it hilarious, though, that you refuse to consider it a possibility that Belle would feel that way about Bae in part because their relationship (brief as it is) has never been portrayed on screen that way when you’ve just commented that you think it’s possible that Belle/Bae would have a fling even though we’ve seen nothing to indicate that would ever happen[adrotate group="5"]February 11, 2014 at 8:26 am #244279RumplesGirlKeymaster
Just a nice general reminder that everyone is entitled to their opinion and is free to use/not use whatever evidence they deem fit to interpret the TV show.
This looks like it was a nice spirited debate but just as a friendly reminder to keep it civil."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"February 11, 2014 at 8:41 am #244282betsypaige24Participant
RG, thanks for the heads up…….and since both of us are not in the same book, nevermind the same page, I think I’ll bow out. Oops, time to head for work, lol. Have a good day!February 11, 2014 at 8:46 am #244283RumplesGirlKeymaster
I do sorta wanna give my two cents, though.
I don’t think Belle would ever be involved with Nealfire just because he is Rumple’s son. She doesn’t even view him as Neal, she calls him Baelfire—a name Neal doesn’t even use for himself until the very end of S3A. In her mind, he is the little lost boy that Rumple was trying to find for 250+ years. I don’t know if she views him as a step son or not (I think EdR and MRJ view their characters that way but it has been more or less vague on screen) but what she does view him as is Rumple’s son. And I think she knows that’s a giant red X."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"February 11, 2014 at 11:33 am #244344harleygirlParticipant
For the record, BP24- I didn’t mean that your comment was laughable. I meant the thought of Belle portaying a Step – mother to Neal was laughable.

I see Belle as being a very loving, nurturing person, so it makes sense she’d lavish that same kind of attention on Neal, the son of the man she loves. She’s going to respect that boundary though, and so will he. I think their relationship is going to take on a familial one in the sense Neal will be like a brother to Belle, and she’ll be like a sister to him. After all, Neal is much older than Belle in terms of life experience, so she couldn’t very well be like a mother to him, but she could be like a sister. They’ll look after one another the way close siblings do.

That would be weird considering Belle was in love with his father.February 11, 2014 at 12:50 pm #244358TheGoldenKeyParticipant
How many times, over the past few seasons, have we had theories that people thought were way out in left field but actual came to fruition? Why are we always so quick to shoot down a theory where there is nothing (canon) to prove otherwise? Isn’t everything with this show a possibility?
I’m not saying anything romantic WILL happen with Belle & Neal. What I am saying is don’t be so quick to shoot down the theory that it might. Neal is a full grown man, not a child and he will be suffering through his loss of Emma & Henry. Belle is broken and will need a shoulder to lean on. They both think Rumple is dead and will be going through tremendous grief. Wouldn’t be the first time people have turned to each other romantically for comfort. I’m more inclined to agree with Slurpez that it will be more like brother & sister but I’m not going to shut the door to K&H making it a romantic relationship. They are two wild & crazy creators and love to throw us for a loop.
Nothing is taboo with this show when it comes to relationships (other than the obvious which I won’t even mention). Anne Bancroft and a young Dustin Hoffman blew the big red X’s out of the water when they did Mrs. Robinson 46 years ago, back in ’68.
When you have two mature adults, both sharing hard losses and both having so much in common, it wouldn’t be a stretch to see finding comfort in each others’ arms.
Again, this isn’t my theory nor was I saying I believe this will happen. I was only suggesting the possibilities and saying we all need to be open to possibilities that haven’t been shut down by canon. 🙂
I really wish we’d explore more theories and look into them rather than cutting them off at the knees before they can even take flight. After all, the theories is what makes this show so enjoyable and what makes coming to this site so much fun. 🙂

First of all, Rumple isn’t gone for good, and Belle has never given up on him. She’s not about to move on from him so easily, especially with the son of the man she loves. Neither has Neal given up hope of a second chance with Emma. Neal would not “go there” with Belle, the woman he knows his father loves, even if he were really grief-striken. Neal isn’t the type to try to come between two people who love each other; he’d do the right thing just because it’s the right thing to do. Also, I don’t think Belle would ever look at Neal in the same way she does his father. As far as crossing boundaries, this is a show for families, not a show just for adults. The film that introduced “Mrs. Robinson” is for adults for a reason.

As GK pointed out – anything is posible.
Good example with Mrs. Robinson. That was pivotal for it’s time.
It broke the rules, just like K&H have done with LOST and now, OUAT.
I try to keep an open mind, too, because unless we can read their minds, any theory is valid unless disproved by canon.
Short of a fling/love interests – a brother/sister type relationship is more believable than a mother/son relationship.
In keeping with Eddie and Adam’s confirmation that OUAT S3 would be reminiscent of. LOST S4:
Episode “There’s No Place Like Home” (note the title)- Jack gives Christian’s eulogy and finds out about his sister – Claire (who, btw, is portrayed by Emilie de Raven).
Like Jack, Neal is suffering the loss of his father….finds a ‘sister’ in Belle.
