For the first couple of sneak peeks that we shared from Sunday night’s new episode of “Once Upon a Time,” it was looking as though almost this entire episode was going to strictly be the story of Colin O’Donoghue’s Captain Hook. However, we now have some proof that there is also going to be plenty happening when it comes to another character that we have not seen too much of yet in Emilie de Ravin’s Belle.
Basically, what makes seeing Storybrooke through her eyes at the moment so interesting is that she, unlike anyone else, really has not had any interaction in this new world at all. She’s been locked up ever since the curse was broken, and she’s experiencing every feeling and part of life (even iced tea) for the first time. Sadly, she may also be experiencing some heartache courtesy of Rumpelstiltskin, who still does not seem to be particularly interested in actually giving up some of his evil plots in order to make life easier for the two parties.
With this, we end up seeing the discussion below between Belle and Red, who has yet to realize who this stranger in her diner is or why she has struggled to adapt to life in Storybrooke so far. However, she does offer to help her find a place to call her home after Belle admits that things are looking bad when it comes to her current relationship.
What do you think the look on Red’s face will be when she finds out just who Belle is trying to escape from? We want to hear some more of your thoughts below!
