If Kitsowitz hate Rumple so much, then WHY did they give him such a sympathetic backstory, and cast such a talented, charismatic, and endearing actor to play him? If the fans are supposed to dislike him and vilify him the way they and the "herocrites" do, why didn't they write it that way from the beginning?Why create a lovable Rumple and then spend years abusing/disrespecting the character and his fans? (Why abuse/disrespect ANY of the fans -- but I guess that's a whole other question.)
I honestly think it’s more EDDY than Adam, but Adam is an ass as well. Just in a different way.
I still hold to my thought from early on – A&E didn’t see Rumbelle coming, they didn’t EXPECT it to happen on the magnitude it did, they certainly didn’t expect Bobby and Emilie to have the chemistry they did, and instead of running with lightning in a bottle like most people with a BRAIN and any other writer with integrity and TALENT would have – they opted push back against it because it didn’t fit their “vision” and they flat out refused to budge and restructure their plans. They wanted Rumple to be bad and ONLY bad and they’re pissy that he’s complex. They don’t relate to and aren’t capable of writing complex.
I also think their ‘big plan’ was to bring Belle back at the very, very, VERY end – like end of the series. They had no intention to put Belle on the canvas, and that’s painfully obvious based on the way they write for her and/or fridge her all the time. She doesn’t fit with their narrative for Rumple.
