If you've been missing your share of Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) on this season of "Once Upon a Time", you're about to get your fix.
"In the second half of the season, they are going to be in the same world for an extended period of time," Show co-creator Adam Horowitz told TVLine.com.
However the additional comment by his co-creator Edward Kitsis was sort of cryptic.
"If you're a fan of 'Rumbelle,'" said Kitsis "the second half of the season will further explore their relationship - in whatever state that is."
While Rumple will be spending more time with the love of his life, he won't experience a total change of his ways anytime soon.
All the Charming/Snow fans out there were very pleased when Rumple agreed to create something that would allow Charming to stay alive once he left Neverland.
However, according to TVLine.com, Rumple isn't going to do this kind act out of the goodness of his heart.
"Rumple very rarely gives anything away for free," Kitsis said according to the website. "He likes nothing more than having someone owe him."
"There will be favors that need to be paid," Adam Horowitz, Kitsis' co-creator of the show, also said.
Rumple played a huge part in the fight against his father Peter Pan , the latest villain our heroes had to face. However, a new villain is coming to town, according to EOnline.
Rebecca Mader, known for hed role as Charlotte Lewis on "Lost", has been cast as the new big bad, the website reports. Her role has not been released as of yet and we won't find out until after the midseason finale on Dec. 15 - although we will get a taste of the villain's capabilities during the episode. A promo the identity of Mader's character will start circulation after the fall finale.
So what did Kitsis mean when he said "in whatever state that is"? Which fairytale villain is Mader portraying? Share your ideas below.
