Rumple’s Quest & Beauty
Whatever Rumple’s important quest is this season, it’s wrapped up in Belle and his family. Weaver is a man on a mission, and he will not be distracted from his goals. Whether he’s there to help Henry, help Wish!Hook find his daughter, for something to do with Belle, or a combination of those things, we don’t know–and that’s what I love about Rumple. His agenda is always HIS AGENDA.
Based on the brief scenes from the promo, I suspect Rumple knew the curse was coming ahead of time and made preparations to be woken by Alice, just as he made preparations to be woken by Emma’s name. The fact that he asked Alice and that she’s his informant in their cursed world, makes me more suspicious that she’s Emma and Hook’s future daughter. And the fact that she shouts his name at him in the promo “Rumplestiltskin!” makes me wonder if Rumple is the Season 7 savior, just as Emma was the savior name that woke him up back in Season 1.
I know there have already been tons of posts about Beauty, so I won’t go over all of it again. It’s been hyped so much and by so many trusted sources–Emilie de Ravin, Giles Matthey, Colin O’Donoghue, Rose Reynolds, A&E, writers, entertainment reporters–I’m sure we’re going to see several romantic Rumbelle scenes and lovely Gold family scenes.
Beyond the happy moments and catching up on my OTP, I don’t really want to know anything more until I see it onscreen. Whatever happens does, and regardless of decisions made in the writers’ room, Rumbelle is forever in my heart and belongs to their fans for all time.
TIMELESS LOVE STORY, YA’LL. Peace.
