‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 premiere spoilers: Rumpelstiltskin, Belle face off

We are now just one week away from the season 2 premiere of “Once Upon a Time,” and we now have yet another clip that shows off plenty of intrigue between two characters that we have already come to know and love: Rumpelstiltskin and Belle.

For several months now we have figured that there was going to be all sorts of crazy tension between Robert Carlyle and Emilie de Ravin’s characters, and in many ways the sneak peek below is a culmination of all of these things. In the scene, Belle questions Rumple angrily about why in the world he would want to bring back magic into the world. His excuse? That he wanted to do just about everything that he could in order to enact revenge on the people responsible for locking up his beloved in Stroybrooke.

Of course, Belle sees things in a completely different way. She is already more than well aware of the fact that both Rumple and his alter ego of Mr. Gold have an obsession with power, and having it ultimately ensures that he will have the upper hand in just about any situation. Having magic in the first place is what turned this once-ordinary man into a monster, and it certainly is understandable that it could happen again. Regina is the only other person in Storybrooke at the moment who knows a thing or two about using magic, and based on what we have seen from her so far on the show, she has yet to even figure out how to use it properly.

Do you think that Rumpelstiltskin and Belle are going to last this season, or do you have a sinking feeling that his greed is in part going to end up dooming the two parties?
