I didn’t get the feeling that they were leading us to believe that he’s Reggie’s father at all. Only that he had a fling with a younger Cora. I think it’s been clear from the start how Rumple feels about children, especially his own child. No way would he have set his daughter up the way he set Reggie up.[adrotate group="5"]

I THINK the reason Rumple might have used REGINA to set up the curse was because Cora went with Henry instead… another rejection of him by a woman. Rumple would not even have to be fond of Cora for him to feel rejected. Using Regina might have been pay back… get Regina and even CORA to enact the curse and pay the price of magic.
I am thinking that Gold is now paying for the magic he used because he lost Belle.

Oh man, I just had a thought. If Rumple is Regina’s dad then I definitely think he didn’t know it. But my thought was that Rumple is so good at reading people that we were all perplexed how he couldn’t tell that Regina was lying about Belle’s supposed death. But what if the reason he couldn’t tell she was lying was because that’s his “unknown” daughter and too close. You know, when you’re too close to something that you lose perspective. His magical methods wouldn’t work because of blood…….or maybe not.

I think the baby daddy theory would be super cool and would totally get behind it…
Except, am I imagining the sexual tension between them? Not so much in present day, but in the flashbacks? Like, the massive heaping amount of sexual tension? Think about their interactions when they meet for the very first time. He is totally coming onto her in We Are Both. Even if he didnt know, still super ewwww. Like others have said, maybe on an FX drama that’d be a crazy twist, but Once upon a time is a very benign show. Maybe I’m misinterpreting their actions in those scenes? Do you guys see it?January 23, 2013 at 3:15 am #169654obisgirlParticipant
Even after seeing the kiss in the ep, I still can’t really see the baby daddy theory panning out. I know it was implied, and obviously they want us to question it, but I’ll still be surprised if Rumple ends up being her father. If he was, he’d know, and after all he went through with Bae, why would he intentionally set out to corrupt his own child the way he did Regina? Does not compute.
Ok. that makes me feel a little better. but I still keep going back to what Henry Sr. said, that Cora knew Rumpel long before they were married. It’s not impossible to think that they could have had an affair. And what a twist it would be in the Miller’s Daughter story if when Cora was forced to give Regina away, and was actually giving her back to her biological father Rumpel.January 23, 2013 at 9:07 am #169674PheeParticipant
Henry Sr didn’t specify how long beforehand Cora had met Rumple, he just says, “Someone Cora knew before I met her.” So she could have met him, like, a week before, just to set up the spinning straw into gold scam, before her father went to the King to arrange Cora’s marriage to Henry.
I just don’t see how Cora could have hidden it from Rumple if he was the baby daddy. If they’d been screwing around and she got pregnant, then he’d have performed some sort of magical paternity test to find out if the kid was his, and unless Cora was particularly advanced in her magical skillz by then, I doubt she could have outwitted him and tampered with the test results. If she has managed to scam Rumple like that, even all those years ago, before she reached the height of her power, and he’s never found out the truth, then that’s pretty impressive, and I’ll be pretty surprised.
But I’m not even convinced they went the whole way and screwed around though. Would he risk getting some chick pregnant? He doesn’t need that hassle in his life when he’s trying to focus on finding the kid he’s already lost.
I can see her having lusted after him as a by product of lusting after the power he was giving her, so I can see her coming onto him, and having not had physical contact with anyone for so long, I can see he may have responded. But I still think he’d have stopped short of sleeping with her, because that would have been leaving himself in far too vulnerable a position. Cora would have enjoyed teasing him immensely, that power hungry, control freak witch that she is.January 23, 2013 at 10:38 am #169685re11Participant
I’ve never thought of Rumple being Regina’s father… till this episode 😕 But if this is true, I don’t think that Rumple is aware of it. As slurpeez108 wrote, Cora told everyone that the father is Henry.January 23, 2013 at 4:52 pm #169728angiebelleParticipant
I really hope Regina is not Rumpel’s daughter. I think that just makes things too messy and makes Rumpel look even worse. I do think that Regina was the first born promised to Rumpel for helping the miller’s daughter spin straw into gold. In the original story, the deal falls through because the miller’s daughter is able to find out Rumpel’s name. Rumpel has mentioned holding Regina as a baby.January 23, 2013 at 5:07 pm #169730theeviloneParticipant
It was kinda strange seeing him flinch like that and seeing the fear in his face after Cora kissed him 😯 . She must really have something on him that would make him act like that. Back in FTL he even got Regina to do the dirty work and push Cora through the looking glass to get rid of her. She must be very powerful or very smart to know how to play him, and he knows it. Can’t wait for the Miller’s Daughter episode to see how all that went down. 😀January 23, 2013 at 10:04 pm #169774obisgirlParticipant

Just the mention of a magical paternity test sounds really funny but hey, magic can do anything right, so it’s definitely plausible to think you could also cook up a magical way to find out who’s your daddy? 😆 😆
