    He would have had to have left Storybrooke to father Henry, but it does make you wonder how Rumpy knew where to look for him. And, really...how did Rumpy leave Storybrooke in order to find the baby, Henry? I thought bad things happened to anyone who tried to leave the boundaries.

    Lovely episode. Robert Carlyle did a fantastic job playing the different variations of his character. I'll assume that the son ran away when his dad turned evil, and that's what made Rumpy even more nasty. It feels kind of weird feeling sympathetic for him. It reminds me of Star Wars. After all that time of hating the villain, and then boom! suddenly you're supposed to feel sorry for him.

    I loved that scene where Rumpy was preparing to attack the castle. Even before his son asks, "Did you really run away?" you can see on his face that he's pulling away from his father. Great acting by the kid, and so sad.

    The only small quibble I had was the ending. Once Emma walked out of his shop, how did Rumpy know she would denounce him? That just felt too complicated, adding in that extra layer.

    It is that only bad things happen to recognizable fairy tale figures versus someone who is only a relative?

    well considering that Rumpy created the spell we have no clue as to what protections he put in for himself when he found a desperate enough soul that had the power to cast it....even though Regina knows I really feel Rumpy knows too and I think he could leave without harm ...like I said I don't know what other protections he put in the spell for himself

    it would explain why he wanted Henry ..his grandson

    ^ No, that's just people positing...noone knows who Henry's father is at this point.

    He didn't have to know. He only had to SAY he knew. Either way he got the upper hand. If Emma hadn't revealed Mr. Gold started the fire, he would've been able to use that against her; but since she did admit it, his next move was to outplay her by SAYING he knew she'd do that so that he could remind her of the favor she owes. Either way he was taking credit for getting her voted into the sheriff's position. He is very very clever and that is his manipulation. It seems that he had a plan either way, which is what makes him so clever and so dangerous! I love this show !!

    AHA! That makes more sense as I don't think Rumpy is all seeing and all knowing.

    Not to throw a wrench in this theory but perhaps this goes to show that Rumpy still has the same powers he had in Fantasyland. After all, he knew the future and what it held while there. My theory is he *does* know the future and, knowing Emma's name, thus knows something about her. From what I've seen, everything Rumpy does in Storybrooke is premeditated; everything is deliberate and seems to be mapped out. I don't believe for a second that he didn't show up at the Inn while Emma was asking for a room without knowing that something was about to happen.

    ETA - I loved this episode. I love how they can humanize every character and make us feel sympathetic towards each one, even if it's only for a nanosecond. I can't wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us!
