** This is actually part of the Beast's CharacterDevelopment in Disney's part in their retelling of the story. In the original fairy tale, the Beast lets her go on the condition that she comes back in a week. Also, she only was allowed to leave solely because she feels homesick, unlike the Disney version where her father is actually in mortal danger (thus saving the Beast being taken over by his moral conscience since he is not setting her free at the cost of remaining cursed for eternity). While the Beast did not request that she goo back to the castle, she still had to return as she inadvertently imperiled the life of the Beast by revealing his existence to the villagers, making them decide to lynch him at Gaston's prodding (In the original, she returned to him after feeling guilty of not keeping her part of the bargain and seeing him dying of heartbreak and loneliness).

* Considering the personalities of the three main servants of the castle, the objects they have been transformed into make a lot of sense. Cogsworth is a stickler for rules and schedules, so he would become something as precise and [[ButtMonkey in need of]] [[StealthPun winding up]] as a clock. Lumiere is passionate about romance (in regards to both [[ReallyGetsAround himself]] and [[ShipperOnDeck between Belle and the Beast]]), and fire is often associated with passion, with candles especially as the centrepiece of romantic dinners. Lastly, Mrs. Potts is [[TeamMom motherly to the Beast, Belle and the other servants]], always at hand to calm and reassure those in despair or in rage. Especially in her actresses' native Britain, [[SpotOfTea what is more associated with helping to calm and relax than almost any other meal?]]

* Maurice is out in the cold for at least three or four days searching for Belle, and it's not unlikely that he was out for longer. And [=Lefou=] stands in the same spot while fall turns to winter. Think about that one a while.

** Imagine Maurice's fate of collapsing in the woods in exhaustion and hunger and freezing to death if Belle hadn't requested to see him in the magic mirror and got there in time when she did.

* Imagine the outcome for Belle in the forest with the wolfs attacking her if the Beast hadn't come when he did.
** What about when the wolves attack Maurice? Imagine his fate if he hadn't reached the castle in time when the wolves came upon him and he slammed the gate.

** Or simpler still the curse hasn't lasted a Decade, but just a couple years.


Added DiffLines:

* So the Beast let Belle go, because he loves her, how romantic. Except for, uhm the hundreds of other lives in the balance. If Belle hadn't come back then what's would have stopped them from turning against their master in anger now that all hope was gone, much like the Village had done against Belle?


Added DiffLines:

** Or even easier, Lumiere was speaking in metaphors, and the curse hasn't lasted a decade but a couple years.

*** Honestly it's speculation, people believe this, due to the lyric in "Be Our Guest," about rusting for 10 years, it's merely a metaphor. Clearly the castle hasn't had a guest in a long time, if ever, also they are under a curse, that they aren't allowed to speak about. Clearly they had wanted company long before the Enchantress came along and they haven't been objects all this time, but they can't let Belle know that, so at the very least it's probably been a couple years, as the rose looses several petals over Belle's time in the palace, so it's clearly loosing them by the months, maybe weeks, not years.

Clearly the castle hasn't had a guest in a long time, and given the Prince's original nature it would be highly unlike if ever, they ever had a guest before, also they are under a curse, that they aren't allowed to speak about. Clearly they They had wanted company long before the Enchantress came along and they haven't been objects all this time, but they can't let Belle know that, so at that. At the very least it's probably been a couple years, years not close to a decade, as the rose looses several petals over Belle's time in the palace, Going from a somewhat healthy glow when she first encounters it in the west wing, to completely wilted after Gaston's attack, so it's clearly most likely loosing them by the months, maybe weeks, not years.

* Belle referring to Gaston as "positively primeval" is, on the surface, a StealthInsult. But it also serves as {{foreshadowing}} for his becoming more animalistic later in the film.

* Why does the Beast look concerned for Maurice when Belle sees him dying in the mirror? Given the time of period that has passed (the movie starts in autumn and ends at the beginning of spring) and how close they've become, chances are very good that the Beast and Belle did talk about her father at least once and the Beast would know how close the two of them are. His concern for Maurice is a reflection of his concern for Belle.
