I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Once Upon A Time, ‘The Crocodile’.

This week was a very Rumplestiltskin-based episode, which automatically means it’s going to be awesome. We find out what happened to his wife (and Baelfire’s mother) – she met Captain Killian Jones and joined his pirate crew. Originally he was powerless to stop her, but years later he’s in a pub waiting for a mysterious man who promises him a magic bean in exchange for being young again. He agrees, and then finds Captain Killian. They duel, and he’s about to kill him when his wife appears. They make a deal – the bean for their lives. On the ship, Rumple asks why she left Baelfire. Her answer didn’t suffice, and so he took her heart and crushed it in front of the entire crew (it seems this is where Regina learned her tricks). Killian attempts revenge, but Rumple cuts off his hand. It’s later revealed that he had tricked Rumple, and was still in possession of the bean. He brought up the mysterious man from the ship, who agreed to be part of the crew, and was named Smee. They set sail for Neverland after Killian attaches a hook in place of his missing hand.
