Yo, so I expect 7x04 to be 3-4 Rumbelle scenes with a runtime of ~12 minutes max. Probably something like this:
- Scene 1: Gideon’s bday party, kisses, happiness, travel plans
- Scene 2: Settling down w/ young Gideon, discussion of immortality/curse
- Scene 3: Grown Gideon, middle-aged Belle, more curse talk
- Scene 4: Belle’s super-old and dies in Rumple’s arms, cue tears
I’m also betting on nonsensical timey-wimey-ness, dodgy CGI backgrounds, sketchy old-age makeup on Belle, great acting, much use of the “Rumple in Love” music (possibly by the Cellos of Sorrow), and 90% of the dialogue being somehow about Rumple, but these are what you might call “gimmes.”
I’ll check out the rumbelle clips on youtube once it airs. Anybody want to add any other prognostications?
