Robin Hood: Stop right there. You know, this arrow never misses its mark.
Rumplestiltskin: If I could stand down, I would. Heed me. Give me the heart.
Robin Hood: No.
Rumplestiltskin: [sees Roland] And who’s this?
Robin Hood: Roland! Go back!
Rumplestiltskin: Come here, little boy.
Robin Hood: Don’t. Please!
Rumplestiltskin: I don’t want to. I really don’t. Come closer, little boy.
Rumplestiltskin: And… stop.
Roland: Daddy, help!
Robin Hood: I didn’t want to do this, either, but… [shoots arrow]
Rumplestiltskin: It never misses its target. [points arrow at Roland] And I just changed the target. If I drop my fingers…
Robin Hood: No!
Rumplestiltskin: I don’t want to… but I will.
Robin Hood: Wait! Wait. [gives Rumplestiltskin the heart]
Rumplestiltskin: Thank you. And I am sorry. Truly.
This scene. Hold fuck, this scene. It’s probably my favorite Bobby scene this year.
This scene was sooo good. So many things going on. Great Rumple moment. Great Robin moment.
I love how Rumple has two different voices here - one a helpless strained whisper, sounding as if he’s having to work to to control himself even to the extent he is. And the voice when the witch’s control has taken over - just scary growling. I love the contrast.
