Once Upon a Time‘s second season is going to see a couple new series regulars, including Emilie de Ravin’s Belle. When the first season ended, she was at Rumplestiltskin’s side as he brought magic to Storybrooke. So what’s next?
OUaT Season 2 Spoilers
According to TVLine, series co-creator Eddy Kitsis has teased, “Rumple has always been a character who has had to choose between love and power, and he has always chosen power. So now that Belle, this wild card, has come into his life, how will it affect his meticulous plan? And which path will he now choose because of it?” The promo that has been released for Once Upon a Time season 2 (below) shows Belle telling Rumple, “Promise me you won’t give in to your hate.” Will she be able to rein him in before it gets to that?
If anyone can keep Rumple from going too far, it would be Belle, but considering everything that has happened since they were separated, will she be unable to do that? Since Rumple’s going to know Regina’s responsible for their separation, Belle may not be able to stop him from going after her. With how unpredictable magic can be in Storybrooke and with these characters still in Storybrooke even once the curse has been broken, anything could happen and Belle may not be able to stop that from happening. On the other hand, it could make Rumple stop and think before doing something and any hesitations could lead to something bad happening.
What do you think of the latest Once Upon a Time season 2 teasers? What are you hoping to see between Belle and Rumplestiltskin this year?
