Rumplestiltskin seems to be manipulating everything and everyone for some unknown end result. From allowing himself to be captured, exploiting James and Snow’s love, giving the curse to the EQ and making a deal for the next world. Now he was surprised by Belle’s love, and would have given in if Belle had not mentioned the Queen was involved. Now I know it’s not CSI, but I wonder why they never mentioned how surgical the heart was removed, or if there was any blood in the heart, or how long the heart had been removed (if they can tell that)? No one has said, where’s the rest of her? Why plant a heart at their spot? Jeez what kind of lawyer is Mr. Gold? Actually, out of all the characters, he is the most like a lawyer.
So I think it is generally agreed that there has to be some higher agenda with Rumplestiltskin. I think it is unlikely that he can see the future, but since he manipulates so many things, he can read more signs than others and see how things are trending. I have no idea what his end game might be, and how much the EQ is doing isn’t set up by Rumplestiltskin in the first place.
I had thought that the Faeries were going to be more of a challenge for Rumplestiltskin; but if they were the target in Storybrooke they aren’t immune to Mr. Gold’s influence. Had he no power or influence on the Nuns, I would think that they might be something that is central to Rumplestiltskin’s big plan.
So right now I’m as baffled as ever and loving it. The series could go in so many directions and I wouldn’t be able to predict a likely scenario for any.
Regina no longer has her keys, that means she no longer has access to her heart collection either. Will that be a story line, her panic when she discovers her keys are missing?March 22, 2012 at 11:37 am #139443hjbauParticipant
Regina still has access to her heart collection. The keys were not used for that.March 22, 2012 at 4:31 pm #139450PheeParticipant
@ Phee So appreciate your ideas and candor. Have you seen the release for the title of the finale? A land without Magic…
It will be interesting to see how your theory pans out.
Yes, I saw that not long after I’d posted my lil theory! Curiouser and curiouser. Hmmmmm. 😉

Funny you say that. Only about an hour ago it occurred to me pretty much out of nowhere that that’s exactly what Mr Gold was doing that time that David came into his shop. At the time, I read much debate about which item Mr Gold had wanted David to be drawn to, the unicorn mobile, or the windmill. He almost seemed to push David towards the mobile at first, but then he still smiled when he saw the windmill. Now it suddenly seems obvious to me that he wasn’t actually trying to steer David in one direction or the other. He’d just set up both items as a test, so he could get an idea of David’s state of mind, so he’d know how to set up the next moves in his grand plan. The smile wasn’t, “Yes, he chose the windmill, he doesn’t remember,” it was, “Thank you David for giving me the information I needed.”March 22, 2012 at 4:37 pm #139452miaParticipant
Uuuuh, I like your thoughts more and more. I never understood why Rumpel smiled at that moment. There was no reason for me to think he wanted David to “remember” his SB life. It also ties in with The Shepherd and Rumpel giving Charming the choice to accept the deal to become Prince James.March 22, 2012 at 6:47 pm #139467hjbauParticipant
I actually don’t think that Rumpel wanted anything out of that scene he just happened to be in the room when it happened.
I really like the idea that Rumpel may want to end magic. That is a good theory.
