I loved this episode and insight into some of the various facets of Rumple. (Robert Carlysle is divine!) I will be interested to see if Belle's return will help redeem him in the end. Perhaps it will push he & Emma to truly working together as a team...or maybe breaking Belle out will be the favor she owes him. So, so many possibilities!
I find it interesting that for the second time, we've heard that true love's kiss can break any curse. Since MM and David have already kissed, I'm wondering if it could be Rumple & Belle that could end the curse? And I think the Queen wanted to know what Rumple remembered purely to know - he stated that he's got all the power in the town, so I'm sure as the curse's creator, he put that fail-safe in there, which is why I'm wondering if Belle's kiss could break the curse. Again, so many possibilities!
I'm glad to see David's going to have to man up and make a decision next week; I'm tired of him stringing MM along! But part of me wishes he gave MM the correct card - not sure if you all caught it but I took a snapshot - I bet on the inside it says 'my queen' or 'queen of my heart'.
