If Rumpel is no longer the Dark One, will Belle and he ever be together again?

Rumbelle shippers have been down a tough road with Rumpel and Belle, and the only question they have after the Season 4 finale is…

If Rumpel is no longer the Dark One, will Belle and he ever be together again?



Short answer: Yes!

Even after all Rumpel’s mistakes, lies and stumbles, Belle has been the one person he has come back to.


From the moment Belle’s true love’s kiss pulled back the Dark One’s mask to reveal the real Rumpel, he knew Belle was special – he needs her.


As Rumpel is now free of the power and influence of the Dark One’s power, he will need someone to help him remember who has was before the dagger. Who better than Belle?

Since Belle has been reading and researching so many things that have helped the rest of the characters in Storybrooke, I would imagine she might have come across something in some of her books that will help Rumpel in his journey back.

Have you ever seen the movie 50 First Dates? There have been a few times that I thought the writers may use the plot device of someone helping someone remember who they were/are, and this may come into play this time. Belle could be the one to help Rumpel learn to be the man he should have always been.

Remember, he did get dating advice from Charming, so Rumpel can learn from others.

To me, it is almost written in stone that Rumpel and Belle will end up together, so Rumbellers have hope! 🙂

OUAT Themes and Meanings – 8. Redemption


The theme of redemption has become a very important one in OUAT, particularly since the start of season 2. We’ve seen our villains (Regina, Rumple, Hook) go to great lengths to change for the better, make great sacrifices, and be the person they truly want to be. Despite someone’s wrongdoings, we must always give someone a chance to change. And it’s also up to others to believe in them, and to help them along. Regina’s search for redemption was inspired by her love for Henry, and Rumple’s was inspired by his love for Baelfire and Belle. It is the love and support of others that makes all the difference.

OUAT Themes and Meanings – 7. First Impressions Aren’t Everything


OUAT has taught us to never judge a book by its cover. A prime example being Belle and Rumplestiltskin. When Belle first went to live with Rumple, she thought of him as nothing but a beast. But she soon learned that there was so much more to him, and as she tells him in “Lacey”, he was not that man she thought he was. We must always try our best to not judge someone too quickly, and it’s always important to get to know them before you make your decision about who they are.

OUAT – Emilie de Ravin Signed As Series Regular for Season 2

Emilie De Ravin (Belle) will  be returning as a series regular for season 2 of Once Upon A Time.

As Once scribe Jane Espenson recently explained to us, “We cast [Emilie] thinking that she’d be great for this but that it would probably be a one-shot — but if she didn’t get a pilot and she had a good time and she’s available, we knew that of course she’d be welcome back!”
