This weekend’s Once Upon a Time is shaping up to be a big Rumpelstiltskin episode. While it marks the introduction of the dastardly Captain Hook, the episode will give us more Rumple backstory while also showing us Mr. Gold’s attempts to connect with Belle in the present day.
After Mr. Gold comes to the realization that something might be wrong with Belle, he reaches out to David for help. Unfortunately, no one else in town is eager to provide assistance to Mr. Gold. Now that all of their memories are returned, they’re all more than aware of how he treated them in the fairytale world. But he’s determined to find Belle regardless and even asks David for some relationship advice. Since David’s suggestion is that a good relationship is built on honesty, we’re not really certain Mr. Gold is going to take that to heart.
Meanwhile, in a flashback to the fairytale land that was, we see a non-magical Rumple head onto Captain Hook’s ship to confront the pirate about taking his wife. But this a Rumple without much self-confidence, so how will he be able to challenge and duel with Hook in order to retrieve his wife?
