Mr. Gold/Rump has his Belle back - what more is he after now?
I believe he wants his son back, truly. BUT he also didn't want to give up his power (permanently). So now he can find his son AND have his power. Best of both worlds, as it it was.
|Can I have someone clarify, please? Just confused. So, now the curse is broken, but now there's magic allowed in Storybrooke? I mean it wouldn't be a restart, or would it? Like... with the smoke and the clock stopping again and Regina smiling... but the curse IS broken? Or not? Aaaah! Sorry!|
The curse was broken with the kiss, so it's gone unless Regina casts it again, but that would be tricky. Though the question of why breaking it didn't send everyone back: I imagine that's specifically the way Mr Gold designed it so he could find his son. The curse is no longer ACTIVELY doing anything, but sending everyone back would probably need another spell to ACTIVELY send them there
Magic is allowed back, as Mr Gold wants "Power" again (with a capital-P). The down-side is that Regina has power again as well, hence her smiling at the incoming smoke.
I wonder if Henry will be with Emma come next season. Emma may have saved him, but what bearing do the events of the last two episodes have on the custody fight?
Well, with EVERYONE remembering again I imagine it might be hard for Regina to get her kid back. As it appears the "judicial system" in Storybrooke was in fact filled with Fairy-tale residents. The DA and such were all characters. Now that they remember, I doubt they'd help her.
As for Jefferson... why not? If everyone remembers, then his kid remembers as well. In which case she'd go out and find him.
Remember, the magic "wave" from the kiss spread out across the whole town and it's suggested it affected everyone (Red+Granny, Snow+Charming, etc). So Jefferson's kid remembers her real father, and her parents in THIS reality remember that the kid isn't really there's.
