** Likewise, Don, who is known for making sure that everyone played fair and penalizing cheaters, doesn't bother to arrest the Ice Dancers (namely Josee) for destroying Central Park upon their elimination, [[spoiler:under the hands of a flat tire and the Police Cadets.]] Instead, his idea of a punishment [for the Ice Dancers] is making them watch their sworn enemy win the season.

* I think S4 was more so underdeveloped bad writing and flanderdization of some of Rumplestiltskin's worst traits, like his emotional cowardice, his selfishness, and his duplicity, rather than necessarily OOC. He had never been that selfless in terms of anyone outside of those he held closest to his heart, like Belle, Baelfire, and sort of Henry, after S3. He had trouble opening up to them and being honest, going all the way back to S1 because he was afraid that they would see that he was so broken inside, and hate him.
I think he didn't want to be controlled again (that's what Eddy Kitsis's said his main motive in 4A was), didn't want Belle to hate him, or think he was weak after being resurrected against his will, losing Baelfire as a result, and being traumatized and caged for a year. I think he didn't feel emotionally strong enough to fight anymore, so giving the dagger to Belle was a cry for help that he ultimately couldn't bring himself to really go through with. Of course, they pretended that all of that trauma never happened to Rumplestiltskin in S4, and then he took it back in 5x11 with a dagger that turned out to work exactly the same way as before because the writers of this show are idiots.



* In every other storyline with Belle in their present day relationship on the show throughout the series, Rumplestiltskin has never been anything less than extraordinarily loving, gentle, considerate, respectful, tender, and patient with his true love, and he is big on giving her space, freedom, and letting her go. He's also incredibly intelligent. However, from 6.04-6, 09 Kitsowitz made Rumple uncharacteristically illogical, controlling, impatient, overprotective, mean, and threatening towards Belle for the first, and thankfully, ONLY time ever on an arc by giving him this majorly OOC blindly insane paranoia over losing his kid, largely to vilify him in service to that garbage Morfetus plot that came out of nowhere in 6x04. Rumple started out 6x01-6x03 by trying to wake Belle from the sleeping curse she put herself in. Then, when they come back to Storybrooke, after Morfetus wakes her with TLK, he reveals that he is their son and thinks that she should stay away from Rumple because he will destroy their family, Belle is dumbed down enough to actually believe it without question, and stays on Hook's ship when he offers. However, Rumple still gives her her space, and gives her a tape recording with a poem on it for their kid with David's help.
* Then, without warning or precedence in 6.04, Rumple cuts his hair, and starts going off the deep end by trapping Belle on Hook's ship to protect her from Hyde with a very OOC snarky attitude when she won't listen to him about her needing his protection, tells him that her "friends" will protect her, and cruelly shuts him down first. And it only got worse from there all the way up to 6.09 with Rumple putting a magic bracelet on Belle's wrist with an uncharacteristically insane and shitty attitude to keep her from attempting to run off to another realm with their unborn child without his consent with Zelena's help, and then threatening to speed up her pregnancy when it wasn't even a logical decision for the storyline at all by that point since Belle couldn't run away with their kid with the bracelet on her wrist trapping her there, so I can't think of an in-character reason for why he would do it beyond almost getting carried away by blind paranoia and OOC writing to escalate suspense at the last minute before Belle snapped him out of it, and made him realize that he was about to go too far.

Added DiffLines:

*It really pissed me off that the writers had to continue to taint Belle, and partially taint Rumple's one consistent character trait on this show throughout all of the shitty writing for him and Belle from 4A-S5 with that god awful arc in 6A, even though I know that neither of them were being abusive to each other by intent in 6A, like Hook was to Emma in 5A. And that's probably why they did it. To make the audience forget that they romanticized an inherently abusive relationship with that whole 50 Shades/Twilight Dark Swan/Dark Hook arc in 5A, even though that arc for them alone was still a billion times worse than any of the OOC unhealthy arcs that they gave Rumbelle from 4A-6A? I just don't understand why else they would give Rumple and Belle such an OOC nonsensical toxic plot/characterization in 6A, and deliberately frame them as being "abusive," other than the fact that they felt the need to validate Hook/CS by trying to make the audience forget how toxic they were/are from 5A-S6. I just can't see why else they would give Rumbelle the idiot ball, and reduce them to OOC, insane, and mean to each other in their desperation to keep their baby safe.

After that, he went back to being the same old loving, tender, self-aware, and gentle Rumple with Belle at the end of 6.09 when she snapped him out of his insanity, and made him realize that he was wrong before he could cross the borderline by going through with the illogically OOC, insane, and desperate idea to speed up her pregnancy to use the shears.
The thing is I knew that when push came to shove Rumple would choose Belle over power, and make the right choice because that has always been a consistent trait in his character, so the only reason they had to nearly character assassinate him beyond all hope of ever being saved in 6A by escalating it to him uncharacteristically and illogically threatening to speed up Belle's pregnancy by cornering her in an elevator without immediately realizing the consequences, until Belle finally snapped him out of it was so that they could escalate the element of suspense and surprise in the plot because that was the most illogically OOC that Rumple has ever been on the show, and from a logical character driven storytelling perspective it wasn't at all necessary to bring him to that point.
* While Belle had been less and less in-character in regards to Rumple from the moment she started using the dagger, she never would have been stupid enough to blindly trust a dream, if written in-character, and leg Rumple have a say back in S5.

After that, he Rumple and Belle realize that they have both were going about things in 6A like illogical assholes in their desire to protect Gideon, Rumple went back to being the same old loving, tender, self-aware, respectful and gentle Rumple with Belle that he normally is at the end of 6.09 when she snapped him out of his insanity, and made him realize that he was wrong insanity before he could cross the borderline by going through with the illogically OOC, insane, and desperate idea to speed up her pregnancy to use the shears.

However, in 6A, Kitsowitz made him uncharacteristically controlling, overprotective, mean, and threatening in his blindly insane paranoia over losing his kid towards Belle for the first ever, just to vilify him in service to the garbage Morfetus plot. While Belle had been less and less in-character in regards to Rumple from the moment she started using the dagger, she never would have been stupid enough to blindly trust a dream, if written in-character, and Rumple have a say back in S5. Plus, she was never knowingly cruel enough to use his fears of failure against him by calling him "too weak to be good" before 6A.

In *In every other situation storyline with Belle in their present day relationship on the show throughout the series, Rumplestiltskin has never been anything less than extraordinarily loving, gentle, considerate, respectful, tender, and patient with Belle, and he is big on giving her space, freedom, and letting her go. He's also incredibly intelligent. However, in 6A, from 6.04-6.09 Kitsowitz made him Rumple uncharacteristically illogical, controlling, impatient, overprotective, mean, and threatening in his towards Belle for the first, and thankfully, ONLY time ever by giving him this majorly OOC blindly insane paranoia over losing his kid towards Belle for the first ever, just kid, largely to vilify him in service to the that garbage Morfetus plot. While Then, he went back to being the same old loving, tender, self-aware, and gentle Rumple with Belle at the end of 6.09 when she snapped him out of his insanity, and made him realize that he was wrong before he could cross the borderline by going through with the illogically OOC, insane, and desperate idea to speed up her pregnancy to use the shears. The thing is I knew that when push came to shove Rumple would choose Belle over power, and make the right choice because that has always been a consistent trait in his character, so the only reason they had to nearly character assassinate him beyond all hope of ever being saved in 6A by escalating it to him uncharacteristically and illogically threatening to speed up Belle's pregnancy by cornering her in an elevator without immediately realizing the consequences, until Belle finally snapped him out of it was so that they could escalate the element of suspense and surprise in the plot because that was the most illogically OOC that Rumple has ever been on the show, and from a logical character driven storytelling perspective it wasn't at all necessary to bring him to that point.

•In S2, we see Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold having horrible obsessive-compulsive visions and nightmares in which he kills Henry because of a nightmare that he is having. He actively is seen avoiding killing Henry once he finds out that he is his grandson, and he is seen as very clearly not wanting to do it or having any intention to do so on the show once he finds out about him being Baelfire's son. But then in the 2A midseason finale, we see him actually attempting to kill Henry out of nowhere when he is riding a tire swing from a distance by trying to cut it away with magic from a distance, until he stops himself when Snow and Charming come to tell him about his son's apparent death, and it was a completely OOC plot twist that happened out of nowhere for the sake of escalating plot drama for shock. It was totally unnecessary. It made no sense. I have seen a lot of fans use the headcanon theory that the scene of Rumple trying to kill Henry on the tire swing at the end of the 2A finale to be another vision or daydream, but the way it was filmed makes it seem pretty implausible to me, unfortunately.
•In season five, Belle seems to be actively interested in starting over with Rumplestiltskin at the end of the "Bear and the Bow" episode when he pulls Excalibur, telling him "It's never too late," and encouraging him to face the bear and Emma by staying in Storybrooke because a "hero never runs away." Then, a few episodes later that takes place a day later, Belle is suddenly being uncharacteristically cruel, cold, and wishy washy with Rumplestiltskin by telling him that she doesn't know whether she wants to work things out with him, and nearly skipping town in the middle of a crisis when Rumplestiltskin gives her an easy out to leave.
•Rumplestiltskin taking back the curse out of nowhere in 5x11, after showing no signs of any power hunger throughout 5A with the curse removed from him for no other motive stated on screen than "It's the man that I am,"and creating a very "character assassinating" moment on the show. Although, Kitsowitz, and the canon narrative context suggests that Rumplestiltskin took the curse back because he was afraid to die, and because he thought Belle was gone forever. Still, neither of those things were directly stated on screen as motives for why Rumplestiltskin took back the curse, so...
•In the Underworld, Belle is willing to work with Zelena, the same woman, who she scorned for killing her husband's son, torturing him, controlling him with a dagger, and caging him for a whole year. Also, Belle being a hypocrite in the Underworld by getting pissed off at Rumple for using dark magic to protect her and their kid, but then going to someone else to use it for the same purpose, and flat out denying the fact that she ever used dark magic to be a hero when she literally met Rumplestiltskin and became his maid because she wanted him to stop the ogre wars in her kingdom of Avonlea.
• The way Belle kisses Rumple at the end of 5x17, telling him that "I love you and I've always known who you are" at the end of "Her Handsome Hero," and then seemingly realizing that sometimes she has to make dark choices to protect her family when she pushes Gaston into the River Of Souls, and then hugs him at the end of the episode, only to completely blow him off, and get pissed off at Rumplestiltskin for having to kill Gaston to save him in the next episode, "Ruby Slippers."
•Both Rumplestiltskin and Belle's incredibly OOC, illogical, controlling, overprotective, threatening, mean, inconsiderate, and insane words and behavior towards each other in 6A in their distrust of each other and paranoid desperation to keep their kid safe/have their love without realizing the harmful/hurtful impact that they were having on each other. It all comes to Belle finally stands still long enough to allow Rumple to get a word in edgewise throughout all of 6A when he's cornering her on an elevator with the threat to speed up her pregnancy, she finally snaps him out of it, and makes him realize that he's about to go too far and make an unforgivable choice by doing that. This all happened because they were both were dumbed down enough to believe what Morfetus told them about hating Rumple, and this PLOT for 6A refused to allow them to be in-character, and have a full conversation until Rumple almost went too far with both of them acting like illogically OOC, blindly paranoid, insane, and inconsiderate assholes to each other in their fear over losing their child.
