Or try to have it all, like a good modern gal, and choose both?
We love the romance between Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) on ABC’s Once Upon a Time — and we’re looking forward to seeing more Rumbelle action on Season 2, since Emilie has been promoted to series regular.
So what can we expect for Belle?
Here’s some new scoop from TVLine: "Freshly plucked out of her hospital cellar confines and thrust into the orbit of the purple smoke-conjuring Mr. Gold, Emilie de Ravin’s beauty is in for quite a bit of culture shock as Season 2 opens. Is somewhere inside this Rumplestiltskin the same imp she fell in love with in the other realm?"
OUAT co-creator Eddy Kitsis teased, "Rumple has always been a character who has had to choose between love and power, and he has always chosen power. So now that Belle, this wild card, has come into his life, how will it affect his meticulous plan? And which path will he now choose because of it?"
And what will she choose? Rumple/Mr. Gold is surrounded by drama — we know he loves to make deals and stir up trouble, and he’s probably going to get into an epic smackdown with Regina. Will Belle want to join in, stop him ... or run away?
It’d be nice if Rumbelle could just live happily ever after together, but nothing is ever that simple on this show — especially not at the start of Season 2! They still have many miles to go.
