Rumpelstiltskin is a cutter – a shadow cutter. Was this the only (special?) place to cut/detach a shadow? Did the Dark One dagger help or hinder the shadow cutting?
Where did Rumpel’s shadow going to hide the Dark One dagger so “No one can find it. Even me!”? Hopefully his shadow won’t hide it anywhere in Storybrooke (especially the clock tower).
We think that Rumpel hiding his dagger was a further sign of his cowardice, and his fear of death.
Rumpel felt pain when he detached his shadow. Are there other negative repercussions to detaching his shadow? Colleen thinks that is removes the dark side that hide weaknesses in a person.
Hook is working very hard to make himself more important to the survival of the group in Neverland. We think there is a correlation to the show, “Survivor”.
