Okay, can I just start this off by saying I am so sick and tired of Rumbelle? I'm not joking whatsoever. I am completely over them as a couple. Their not like a couple who will go through some bumps in their relationship.
Belle and Rumple are no Hook and Emma. That's for sure.
In the 9th episode of the 6th Season, we discover Rumple has a strange disliking for the fairies. It is later revealed that the Black Fairy who was only briefly mentioned, I believe back in Season 3, is Rumple's Mother.
As the episode progresses, Jasmine and Aladdin rub he golden lamp in hopes of freeing their wish granting friend. They do so, only to discover that the Genie has been "freed" (a wonderful gesture I think towards Robin Williams who if you don't know, voiced the Genie in Disney's Aladdin).
In the present day, Rumple has a mission, as he plans to take the shears (originally meant for Emma) and use them on his son. When no one is looking, Rumple plops some strange magic into a cup of tea that Belle later drinks. And what does the magic tea do? It repeats the Dark Sean's devious trick by speeding up Belle's pregnancy so she is forced to give birth.
Belle later realizes that Rumple will stop at nothing to get what he wants, and that her newborn son Gideon deserves his best chance at life. She asks Blue to take him somewhere safe, to every night read to him the first book Belle's Mother ever read to her; Her Handsome Her
At the end of the day, Hook and Emma use squid ink to freeze Rumple so that they can find the golden shears. In the midst of looking, Emma has another vision, but this time she spots something: a silver sword which at the end of the episode she and Hook, realizing that this sword could be the key to defeating the Evil Queen once and for all.
Once Upon a Time 6x09 "Changelings" aired with a scary total of only 3.3 million views on Sunday. I'm pretty sure it's because people are tired of Rumbelle. I'm with those people.
