    The queen said she did that to her.

    I am so confused. In the story (Disney version) Malefecent is the evil queen's name and she turns herself into a dragon. So in this one they are two seperate entities?

    Malefecent is Sleeping Beauty's evil fairy.

    The Evil Queen is Snow White's evil stepmom.

    Two different characters in Disney lore.

    Did you miss the scene between Regina and Gold in the previous episode, where it was revealed that if Regina killed Emma, the curse would be broken? We all figured she didn't know or she'd have killed her, but that revelation showed that she did know all along, but couldn't do anything about it.

    So she knew all along that the baby Gold brought her was the grandson of her most hated enemy?? I don't believe that. I know it was revealed that she appears to have known all along but until recently they have given no indication of that nor when exactly Regina gained this knowledge so I felt like that conversation with Gold skipped something or I missed something and I know that's not the case.

    No, I don't think she knew Henry was Snow's grandson when Gold first brought him to her. But I think she figured out who Emma was not long after Emma arrived. She wasn't blind to all the changes that started happening in the town suddenly after Emma arrived.

    I think the moment she knew was the scene towards the end of the pilot when Emma told her how Henry showed up on her 28th birthday.

    I still do not understand Rumpelstiltskin's motive. For a few of the episodes toward the end, I thought I did. I thought he wanted the curse so he could come to this land to find his son (even though he didn't look like he was looking very hard). That explained why he didn't directly help Emma break the curse.

    As of the season finale, it looks like he wanted the curse broken.

    Was it that he did want the curse broken, but not until he got his love potion back? Even if that is true, it still doesn't really answer my fundamental question.

    I guess I'll have to wait until next season to find out. I wonder how many plot holes you can hind in a four month hiatus.

    I think he needs magic to leave the town, to find his son. Just my theory.

    I would think he needed the curse broken so he could leave town. I can't imagine there's another 'world without magic'. :) Bael must be somewhere on Earth.

    I wonder if the magic cloud affected those outside Storybrooke?

    The other major thing that changed in Rumplestiltskin's world is that he got Belle back, this probably affected his thinking about what he wanted from the curse.

    Rumpy wants to have his cake and eat it too.
    He wants magic (not to be the Dark One, just general Rumpy magic), he wants Belle, and he wants Bael to love him and respect him.
    His addiction to magic is what will bring him down in the end IMO.

    He made the deal to get the egg (magic) back from the dragon BEFORE he knew that Belle was still alive. She arrived in hi store and without looking up he told her to leave becasue he was working on something, getting the magic out of the egg. Clearly the mad hatter released her, and told her to tell Gold that she had been imprisoned by Regina, so Gold would have his revengeon her, since the Hatter couldn't bring himself to take that revenge.

    Yeah, I just caught up on the episodes today. Sorry to bounce this old thread, but Rumpy was lying, it wasn't a potion of true love that he hid in the egg. The true love potion looked like two colored wires intertwining, while this one was a glowing pink/purple. The clouds at the end matched the original curse, but we don't know if it is a repetition of the original curse, or something else.
