Once Upon a Time: Deeply Disappointing - 572233.info
Here are the relationships from the show—romantic, platonic, genetic, etc. And most of Henry's grandparents are the same age as his parents. Henry's father, Neil, was the son of Rumplestiltskin (different spelling than the Apart from Rumpelstiltskin and Belle, which will go down in history as the most. Connor wishes he was as awesome as Bass and the relationships are nothing alike. The most age difference between the two is 12 years. Once Upon A Time: Robert Carlyle (Rumple) is Emilie de Ravin (Belle) is Curly-toed shoes, decades of age difference and rotting prosthetic teeth Belle sprinted back to Rumpelstiltskin's side in the hope of giving him a and friend, and so his relationship with Belle seemed natural and inevitable.
When she tried to act like his equal she was manhandled 1x12 or stomped into dirt Lacey. He lied about what happened to Milah- he said "she died" he didn't tell her she killed him because she didn't love him. I mean that's not a red flag, thats a siren with flasing lights.
IS Belle and Rumple's relationship toxic?
Plus, he has already killed a woman because she rejected him; you think he won't do the same to Belle? And she knows he could and would do it. He sees Belle as an object for his happy ending, not a person in her own right eg. He also only changed her back from Lacey to Belle because he needed her, not because she deserved her free will. He has also called her an object 6x Twice in season 6 he restricted her freedom locking her on the Jolly and using the tracking bracelet He was willing to use magic to speed up her pregnancy and no, he does not get points for changing his mind.
You do not get points for not being more abusive than you already are. He has raped her twice s4 final and 5x11, as well as possibly when she was Lacey and sexually assaulted her three times in s4 when he was disguised as Hook and touched her boobs, in s4 when he kissed ehr when she was unconscious and in s2 when she was Lacey and he was kissing her. And then after raping her say "at least I got one last taste".
That should be an immediate deal breaker.
Belle is literally in a relationship with her rapist. That's not exactly the "true love is blind" message shining through. Also, she really shouldn't love this person. The beloved Disney cartoon, which ABC has unlimited access to borrow from, made a point of giving the Beast an arc that transformed him from cruel bully into protector and friend, and so his relationship with Belle seemed natural and inevitable.
What about Rumpelstiltskin won over the beautiful Emilie de Ravin? Was it the time he threw her in the dungeon, or when he didn't whip her with a riding crop for dropping a teacup?
- See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
- Isn't Rumpelstiltskin too old for Belle?
Maybe it was his giant grandmotherly spinning wheel or his promise to get used to daylight or how he said he would tell her about his son and didn't. I have now mentioned the extent of the romance between Rumps and Belle, because in this episode it was not the romance that was privileged but the break-up.
And it's a shame, because Emilie de Ravin is fantastic, and created a real chemistry between herself and Carlyle.

Yet after a few moments of conversation and an awkward kiss, we spent twice as much time on Rumpelstiltskin's horrible breakdown, screaming into his mirror, terrifying Belle and forcing me to laugh until my sides ached. You have to step out of this show and laugh at it, or it becomes too claustrophobic.
Don't tell me they didn't have the time to fully develop their romance in an hour-long episode. All this show has is time.
The writers could easily have made this a two- or three-episode arc. Rumpelstiltskin is a major character and Disney's Beauty and the Beast is currently in theaters. Don't tell me that new viewers coming in on the second episode of a multiple-episode arc would be alienated, because this whole show is alienating if you haven't seen every episode before.
Sequential viewing reaches its zenith in shows like OUaT and Lostand if the writers are going to cultivate that kind of loyalty in their viewers they might as well reward them by giving them miniseries-like development for important relationships. That's what they're doing with the loathsome David Nolan and Mary Margaret.
If the Beauty and the Beast story was a slap in St. Valentine's face, David Nolan buying two last minute ninety-nine-cent greeting cards for his wife and mistress was a roundhouse kick to the personal regions. David caught Mary Margaret leaving the saddest girl's night out of all time: David promised he would "find a way" for them to be together: David, you don't have to head to the lab and invent a new element, it's pretty obvious what you have to do: Seriously, what is the conflict in this relationship?
That's not a rhetorical question, I want some answers. Is he not leaving his wife because he is afraid of losing the house and wouldn't be able to pay rent on his animal shelter income? Is it because he genuinely kind of likes the wife that didn't check the local hospital when he went missing for untold years? The series, in its haste to create dramatic suspense, has eviscerated Prince Charming's character and intentionally made him a creep.
The promo for next week addresses this head-on, promising that we'll finally see him "manning up" and continuing the now eight-episode arc of this pair failing to get their sh-t together. So why not give Robert Carlyle a little extra time to develop an epic romance? Was Emilie de Ravin that booked? I just don't understand why Once Upon a Time insists on rushing us through all the emotional highs so we can continue to tread water in the giant emotional low of Storybrooke.
