Pan VS Rumple.
So cool and intense scene., (and so mean. Pan is brutal)
Wheeeee :) Holidays for my lovely Santa! And, again, you’re the sweetest <3333 But also a tease :P
I’ve catched a cold, so there’s that, but otherwise it’s been good? Hope yours goes better than mine, in any case :)
So it’s been more than a day - I have a nasty cold. :(
This scene left me wondering how much of his pre-curse captivity craziness was playacting for the benefit of Regina and the Charmings. Or was it connected to the curse itself, and he was only Rumplebatshit until it got cast and lost its hold on him somehow?
I’ve wondered and wondered how he went from the madman behind bars to the cool and collected guy we met in Storybrooke. Even the addition of the ‘Mr Gold’ curse persona couldn’t join those dots, but I’m full of awe at the notion that he might simply have been been faking.
He was playing everyone like a harp even before he got locked up. My headcanon is that after they left his cell all WTF-y, he straightens up, walks calmly over to his leather recliner, poofs himself a robe and pipe and whips out a novel from Belle’s library to pass the time.
And fuzzy slippers.
Fuzzy bunny slippers. Purple ones.
my vote’s on Fuzzy Yellow Snails

Nah, I think he was genuinely affected by being kept in solitary.
It’s considered torture for a reason? And it’s not like your average person is unaware that isolation is damaging, Emma was wondering aloud what it did to him.
There are plenty of studies on what being imprisoned and left all alone with your thoughts does to people’s brains, and yes, he had magic but that doesn’t help his mental health a whole lot either. Think early Dark One, before the price of magic was paid with important deals, the magic itself looked to be affecting him and that’s why Bae found it so alarming. It wasn’t just that he’d changed, it was that it was getting worse over time. He was barely holding on and was very dangerous to be around before he figured out that deals were a way to well, deal with the fallout of using magic, because the price always needs to be paid, and he had to cope with losing Bae too, so it must have took him a while to stop that deterioration and get on a more even keel.
He needed (always did, really) to find ways to cope with all he’s living with and in his cell he’s basically ran out of coping methods. He just wants it DONE. He’s had enough. He’s still a person and all of this mess, the magic, his grief and the imprisonment, took its toll on him.
It was necessary that he stay there for the plan to go ahead, he saw ahead of time that that was the case, but yeah, his cracking up was definitely part of the reason almost 30 years of oblivion sounded good to him. That time gave him a respite from the pain and everything else that had him hanging on by his fingernails to what was left of his mind. He could see Emma would turn up, and he knew she would break the curse, that he’d find his son eventually, and he was delighted his plan was coming together but we can’t ignore that he wanted to check out for decades, that was a thing he wanted, and he has reasons why. Reasons that won over even his need to keep all his hard fought for control.
I think Bobby meant every bit of the ‘crazy’ we see in the cell scenes, especially in the pilot.
