LOL at first I didn't know what you meant, but then I realized...

Yes, he'd better!

Ok, aside from how hot Bobby is here.........the ring fascinates me. Whereas Rumple wore a ring that, in my opinion, represented Belle (I don’t see him using it as his wedding ring otherwise), here he’s wearing one with a skull on it.

So, Rumple as Weaver is wearing a symbol that reflects death and mortality, the latter of which is a state that he is desperately seeking. Yet, in some cultures, “death isn’t the end of life”, but “the next step”…….and that is how Belle and Rumple view it; that is how the show is portraying it (as Adam and Eddy have said, there is life after death)….


Quote:
For most of the world, skulls are a depiction of death. They’re a stark reminder of our mortality, and one of the most powerful symbols on the planet.

However, though skulls might clearly have connotations of death, they also have hundreds of other meanings throughout the world and, more often, throughout the art world.

To Show Change and Transformation

For many cultures around the world, death isn’t the end of life.

In fact, it is merely the next step in the story, after which there are numerous other paths to take.

This is celebrated in Mexico, too, hence why Dia de los Muertos is a fun festival celebrating life and not mourning death like much of the Western world.

In this case, death marks a pinnacle turning point in the narrative of life, which is exactly what the skull represents in the death Tarot card.

Now, I’m not a massive believer in Tarot cards, but it’s interesting to see how the symbol of a skull is used in this respect – not just a piece of art, but also a traditional symbol that represents something not so “traditional”.

I’m probably reading too much into it, but this ring is not one of Bobby’s, so it’s something the costume department would have procured. I don’t know if they meant it to symbolize anything beyond Weaver being dark, but....





I love this scene so much………so much. They’re doing their usual thing - Rumple stays in place and holds his arms out for Belle to run into - and she not only runs, but she grasps his face, holds onto it for dear life, and kisses him like she doesn’t care if she ever breathes again. I LOVE how Rumple presses her to him and runs his hands up and down her back (ok, you can’t see that here, but he does). What a kiss……..and I think their bodies are kissing, too, lol, because they are so close………

I always love how Belle just launches herself at Rumple.

She always does that - I love it, too! Rumple is usually paralyzed by emotion until she touches him, lol - then he’s activated !

One of my favorite kisses (multiple) - which I can’t upload now - is the kiss in S5, when Belle returns to the shop after Rumple gave her the keys to his car to see the world...

I believe he only wore that ring in "Beauty", and looks like it's on his right hand.. So I think it was/is meant to symbolize his loss.

That could be from Weaver's chat with Victoria. Also, he did wear it in other episodes: 7x03



However, maybe he removed it post-waking up in Beauty because by 7x09, he's got another ring on his right hand. He's clearly fidgeting with it when Victoria talks about his "great love" that "he's separated from", so I wonder if - since he doesn't have his wedding ring (how did THAT not make it through the curse), he wears that instead
