I just want to point out, because I haven’t heard it anywhere else, what Cora did to Rumple!
I mean, remember a few episodes ago when she showed up in his shop?
Cora: Hello, master. I’m back. I have a peace offering. Take this globe and find your son, there’s no reason for you to stick around here. Truce? Let’s seal it with a kiss just so neither of us backs out of this deal.
Rumple: *bewildered, off-kilter, can’t figure out what her end game is, really wants that globe, would it be so bad to call a truce?* Okay…
A few episodes later:
Cora: MWUAHAHA! He left town, just as I planned! Now, Regina, we can find his dagger and make him kill the good guys!
Wow, that’s cold, Cora. Maybe it’s revenge for manipulating her daughter to shove her through a mirror? I mean, if they had a relationship, he did kind of backstab her first by doing that.
I guess the real problem here is how humble she pretended to be, while having such evil intentions.[adrotate group="5"]February 24, 2013 at 3:37 pm #175278hcadiaParticipant
I couldn’t agree more! 😀February 24, 2013 at 3:49 pm #175279rczParticipant
Yeah, she sure is the ultimate backstabber! Let’s not forget the way she behaved in the Stable Boy, to start with: she says:” My dear daughter, I love you, so do whatever you want, as long as you’re happy!”, and then she rips and crushes the heart of the one person Regina really loved. I hate what she does, but I love her character.February 24, 2013 at 4:31 pm #175284KebParticipant
I think his manipulation to get Regina to shove her through the mirror was, for Rumple, a solution to a problem long past, as well as a spot of vengeance…which I think we’ll learn about in the next few episodes.
But we knew Cora couldn’t be trusted. For anything. And Rumple should’ve known, too, but Cora hit him right when she knew he was most vulnerable–after all, she had been helping Hook all the time and knew exactly what had happened with Belle, and knew just how important getting back to Bae had become (even if she didn’t know before, which she might have). She hit both Rumple and Regina at their most desperate, which we know was always her intention with Regina. Rumple was so off-kilter he even asked her about memory spells, in almost the same little desperate tone as he once asked Charming for dating advice. For Cora, Hook was just another tool to keep Rumple from being a threat to her while she pursued whatever ultimate plans she’s got. And we’ve seen her turn on Hook a few times, turn on Regina, turn on just about everyone who is foolish enough to think that they can deal with Cora and not get bit in the end by it.

This is why I love Cora as a villain! She’s just unabashedly evil and manipulative. Barbara Hershey is flawless, and she conveys so much malice and cunning with the way she plays her. Cora does seem to have quite a huge plan here. She certainly knew Rumple’s weakness enough to exploit it and get a clear shot at finding the kriss knife. She knows Regina’s weaknesses too (though I still hold out hope that Regina is playing her). Very curious about what the next couple of episodes reveal about Cora’s motivations and ultimate plan.February 28, 2013 at 8:31 pm #175967riddleravenParticipant

Oh, that made me so sad for a second! Poor Rumple!
Great replies! Do you think Regina has really fallen for Cora’s tricks this time? I can’t decide if she’s actually trusting her so that she’ll feel betrayed in the end or if she’s going to feel vindicated for not trusting her and finally kill her. I can see her turning the tables on Cora eventually.
