Is Belle’s mom dead or will we see her in flashbacks?
Adam: The truth of that—or not—will be revealed. We’ll learn more about Belle’s past. And we’ll see Belle in the time period before she met Rumplestiltskin.
Eddy: We’ve met Maurice [Belle’s father]. He runs Game of Thorns, the flower shop…
Oh my god, I’m so happy!!!
I think Belle’s mom is dead….. I mean, ALTHOUGH. what happens if she ran off with someone, just like Milah? I’ve always assumed that Belle’s defining characteristics come from here mom, but who’s to say that she’s just that way by nature? Oh I have no doubt that something happened to or with Belle that encouraged her ability to see the good/the truth/the best in people, but maybe that’s just who she is? I do think it’s more likely that she was a good mom and died in childbirth (not Belle, but say a baby boy), but I wonder given the twists this show likes to take.
Pre-Rumple Belle……. we’re going to find out how our Beauty became the Beauty. YES!
Maurice! Much as I detest what he did, I’m glad we’ll see more of him… BUT it’s important that Belle not run to him after she learns about the dagger. I say that because you can easily see Maurice trying to convince Belle that she was wrong all along and he was right…
More Dark One mythology…. yep ,the dagger. Oh my gosh, I KNOW in my heart that Gold faked the dagger to protect Belle; that golden magic he locked it away with………big deal, I think. I think Gold is SCARED of the dagger….. I truly do; his reaction to it when Belle gave it to him gave it away.
More Rumple past…. yes!
S4 is going to be GREAT or Belle/Gold and Rumbelle!
** Cable and Penicillin, lol. I LOVE the idea of putting roots down……. that means perhaps we’ll see the characters building more of a community. Let the library be a social center; build a movie theater…..I see already that there are many more food options!
That’s not to say that I wouldn’t want Rumbelle back in the DC, lol ,but for now…..
I think that the dagger is cursed, like him. Like, if you have the dagger then you’re cursed without knowing it and you’re gonna die. The Duke has the dagger when Zozo was The Dark One, we have no idea what happened to him. Then Rumple. Then Cora took it, she died. Then Rumple again, then Zelena took it, she died too. I think I see a patern here.
