I have a question…This just struck me the other day. When Regina goes to visit Belle in the psych ward she asks if Belle has had any visiters. What was that about? I find that very very weird. The girl is locked in your secret psych ward and you want to know if anyone has been in to see her as if you know someone comes regularly…right? Am I off on this one?
Maybe she meant Belle’s dad? Rumple/Gold thinks Belle’s dead. But you’re right, that is weird. Maybe the psych ward isn’t so secret after all…
I think that was for the audience’s benefit. The nurse answered with “No, not ever” or something along those lines. Can’t recall the exact quote. Anyway, I think she only asked that so that we, the audience, could be sure that no one has ever been down there, no one knows about it.[adrotate group="5"]April 8, 2012 at 10:57 pm #141439clockwatcherParticipant
After all Snow White begs Charming to take her to see Rumple when she is pregnant because he CAN see the future.
Wait. Is it established that Rumple can see into the future??? 😯April 8, 2012 at 11:55 pm #141446
Snow did say that. I think she is wrong. At least we have yet to see Rumpel actually SEE the future as in have visions and it seems evident that he doesn’t know everything about the future, so the only possibility is visions.April 8, 2012 at 11:57 pm #141448

But he was able to see that only Snow and Charming’s baby could break the curse. He knew the exact date and time in which she would return too. Hmm, I guess we’ll have to see.April 9, 2012 at 12:02 am #141449
Yes, but if Rumpel created the curse and used Snow and Charming’s bottle of love as an ingredient then he could know that it was their child that would break the curse. And it is possible that he could somehow cause it to be 28 years until she breaks the curse though we have no idea how that all came about, that exactly on Emma’s 28th birthday Henry showed up at her door.
I know Snow said it, but we haven’t actually seen Rumpel see the future. That is all i am saying. And there is a lot of things he does not know so we know he is not all knowing about the future. Though he could still have visions about some events, but we haven’t seen him have any sort of vision.April 9, 2012 at 12:06 am #141450
^Good point. 😉 But I wonder why Snow would say that then? It would be pretty funny if Rumpel was putting out outrageous stories of himself just to make himself look more powerful than he actually was. 😆 😆 😆April 9, 2012 at 12:12 am #141453lissyParticipant
Hmmm I wonder if your right midnight dreary and he just made up these stories. Then he could plan it out so in the end what he predicted would actually happenen. This would make him appear very powerful. We already know he is an expert planner with all these deals.April 9, 2012 at 12:15 am #141454

Good point. 😉 Rumpel may not be able to see the future, but he’s an expert strategist and he’s able to recognize, in his own words, a “desperate soul.” He probably mapped out his plan years before the curse actually took effect.
Sweet Jesus, Regina. Why would you want to cast a curse that Rumpel made? WHYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!April 9, 2012 at 12:19 am #141455
I could totally see why people might think that Rumpel can see the future because he seems to know things and it is not clear how he knows them. Though he could just gain a lot of information through all of his deals. Like we know he learned about Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother from King George. He did a deal with George to get that information so that he could kill the Fairy Godmother and take her wand and then he did a deal with Cinderella because he was there. So at first it seemed like he just came out of no where, but then later we learn that actually he found out about the Fairy Godmother from George.
And there have been many times when people have sent for Rumpel. George sent for him. Snow sent for him. Belle’s father sent for him. He doesn’t always just appear places, but a lot of times people send for him or they come to him to do a deal so he doesn’t seem to know magically where to be all the time.
And he might have some sort of visions as well, but i find it more interesting that he has knowledge, and his knowledge is a great part of his power. I am watching 7:15 and Rumpel knows Snow and says her name when they do the deal for the potion and she is surprised by that when he says her name, but it may just be because he knows of her because he knows the Queen. We know he knows the queen and has probably heard her talk about her Snow problem. And Rumpel has been around for centuries he is going to know a lot about the workings of the kingdoms and probably knows the royal families and such. Knowledge is power.April 9, 2012 at 12:24 am #141458
^Hmm, very good point. 😉 People only think Rumpel can see the future. However, the real answer to the question is that he’s probably “in the know.” He has numerous connections with various different kinds and leaders. So, he probably uses that to his advantage. And I agree that Rumpel being the creator of the curse gives him natural insight into how the curse will be broken.
