This Sunday on Once Upon a Time, as Rumplestiltskin lay dying, the ABC drama will flash back to how he first met Cora — in turn offering context for that random smooch Regina’s mom planted on him a few weeks back! The Imp Now Known As Mr. Gold meanwhile will bid adieu to his other love, Belle.
In this first clip from the next episode, “The Miller’s Daughter,” we get an idea of just how close Rumple and young Cora got during the course of her first, Ghost-like gold-spinning tutorial. Doesn’t guest star Rose McGowan (Charmed) look purty in her “Snow white” gown? (And how does she not get glitter on her lips?!)
And here, Gold, relocated to Storybrooke after Hook’s assault, makes one last bid to let amnesic Belle know how much she meant to him. (Grab a Kleenex, Rumbelle fans.)
