Am I the only one that didn’t see the lie?
People keep saying Rumple lied to Belle in the dream, Maybe it’s just me but I can’t find the lie. He approached Belle with the character he was given. In her dream he was the owner of the Dark Castle. But he also approached her as a man who loved her. He is a man who loved her. I realize this might be a bad thing to do but if I had some random character in a dream break the world of the dream to tell me it wasn’t real and say… what? “You’re cursed and I’m really your husband and you’re dreaming and you hate me but I need to kiss you because I need you to wake ‘up?” Like A) No that doesn’t go with the dream. And B) I’d tell them they were nuts.
Also his actions were essentially “I will do anything to save her” She was going to die. He was put on a clock, wake her up now or she and her child sleep forever. So he behaved true to his heart. He behaved the way he always wants to with Belle, he treated her the way he did when they were married. He honestly spoke to her telling her what she needed to hear. Yes it was in the realm of the dream so he lied about like…. not traveling or anything. But that’s not really a lie so much as playing the part assigned. I literally see NO lie during the entire exchange and I call bullshit to the existence of one. I mean really……….. How is that a lie? He didn’t say or do anything false.
