Okay, my first one is....when Mr. Gold and Regina were in the Sherrif's office towards the end of the epsiode, what was the point of Regina making Gold announce the fact that he is/was Rumplestilskin? Regina made the curse, wouldn't she know?
Also, anyone got any theories on the significane of the cup? Me and my mom both think it is Rumplestilskin's son, but the more I dwell on that, the less likely it seems.
I believe that Regina thought she was the only one that knew about the curse. But she discovered Rumpelstiltskin knew who he was as well, since he kept saying please to her to get her to do what he wanted. So now Regina just confirmed that Mr. Gold remembers who he is.
I don't think the cup is his son, since if it was, he would seen a lot angrier when Belle chipped it. I think the cup just represents Rumpelstiltskin, since it's flawed. And now it probably just serves as a reminder of his time with Belle. Sounds corny though ahah.
Rumpelstiltskin gave the Evil Queen the spell, so it was his spell to begin with.
Also, the cup is the one that Belle dropped. If you watch the "Skin Deep" episode, you'll the cup is in just about every scene where they interact. In the beginning of the episode, when Belle is apologizing to Rumpelstiltskin for dropping the cup, he replies with "It's just a cup." Towards the ends of the episode, when he has been tricked into believing that Belle is dead, he places the chipped teacup on a pedestal. The cup, to Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold, is symbolic of Belle.
