You’ve got Rumplestiltskin - early, with the limp.
And you’ve got The Dark One - at that point he’s very dangerous.
And then you’ve got Rumple (I call him “Rumple”) after that - who’s so old that he’s sort of lost the bloodlust. He becomes more… he’s not funny, but he can see the humor in situations. He’s so old that he’s seen it all before.

“He’s 300 years old. He’s met so many people over the years that he’s been impressed and unimpressed by, he’s taken on their voices, he’s taken on their accents and their mannerisms.

Here’s some tips for you all:
Just be thankful for the show and the characters. Obviously, if we can all get this heated and frustrated over it, we care deeply. Just be happy that you have the show, be happy that it’ll be on again this weekend, be happy with whatever ship floats your boat, and leave others alone.
