Do you feel like becoming a Dark One and wanting to seek revenge on Rumple has, in turn, reignited the flame that he once carried for Milah?
Oh, no. Milah is sort of this whole different thing. She’s a love that he had and he truly loved her, but he now has a whole different new love that is such a huge part of who he is – and maybe even more so because they’re so kindred. That’s not to say that he’s not incredibly annoyed with Emma, but I think deep down, as we’ve seen with Rumpelstiltskin and even with Emma, you can still love somebody. It’s just how you treat that person is the problem when you’re the Dark One.
