‘Once Upon A Time’ Spoilers: Rumple, Kathryn And The End Of Season Dash

Tonight’s all new Once Upon A Time, not only kicks of their end of season run, but will again center around Rumpelstiltskin. Writer Jane Espenson takes us into tonight’s episode, “The Return”.

“This is a character who has his memories and yet the form of menace that emanates out of him as Mr. Gold is do different, so contained and snake-y as opposed to the broad, theatrical nature of Rumpelstiltskin,” she says. “I’m perpetually fascinated. I feel like we could just keep peeling back the layers of this forever and ever.” Tonight, viewers will get a fuller picture of the relationship Rumpel had with his son and more specifically, how the two ended up on “divergent paths,” says Espenson. “His son is not happy about what he’s turning into, and we’re going to see Rumple faced with a decision about what he values. Can he do what his son wants him to do?” she teases.

Kathryn Return

“There’s a huge amount of relief,” says Espenson. “Her reappearance is more of a solution than a problem.” But it does open up several interesting questions, she adds. For example, where she was the whole time and with whom she was with. “Regina never planned on her coming back, and someone is in trouble with Regina for this happening.”

Espenson also teased the last stretch of the ABC hit’s freshmen season, including the penultimate, which she co-wrote David Goodman.

“So much action!” she says of the episode, titled “An Apple Red as Blood,” which will see a return from Snow’s seven dwarfs. It all sets up the season 1 finale, which, as Espenson told Spoiler Room, is “the biggest [finale] I’ve ever been a part of.” “It will be a very satisfying season finale,” she says. “This is the finale to end all finales.”

    I think Gepetto carved Pinnochio out of the magic tree that transported Emma out of the magical realm into the non-magical “Storybrooke” realm.  If August is Pinnochio, that is the connection between him and Emma.

    I agree with you. I also think that the Blue Fairy knew he would not age, and be able to keep his memories, and leave story brook with no hard. She assigned him on a mission. he  was charged with being the historian. She could have zapped his mind with more memories of the other stories that the Blue Fairy knew about. He saw prince charming being stabbed after he set Emma in wooded wardrobe.  HEy what do you think about this theory of mine, that HENRYS father is BAE!!..Remember Bae has no idea about curse. He left before that. THe powers that transported emma and kept her safe from the curse also drew Bae to her when she was 18. She met him, he must have been what 28?  The powers to break the curse must have wanted them to have a baby together. Probably something to do with breaking the curse. Rumple lost his son at one time, maybe this time rumple will be the one to stay behind and sacrifice himself so that everyone else can go back to fairy tale land. and then Belle most likey will choose to stay with Rumple.

    No way… I hope that a true love kiss can break the spell. We all know that Regina is heart-broken and that Emma is the only character who can break this spell… The curse can break only with something between their. But the thing is that the spell was for Rumple at first, so maybe a true love kiss with Belle, but i don’t think so.
