Thought on tonight's OUAT

Does anyone else get the impression that Rumplestiltskin has already set his sights on corrupting a new mother/daughter pair, Snow and Emma? The look on Emma's face when she did the protection spell, coming so quickly upon Rumple sending Snow out with the candle to fetch Cora's heart... was a direct echo of everything we've seen with Rumplestiltskin, Cora, and Regina for so many episodes.

If Cora is indeed dead (yay), and Regina is no longer making deals with Rumplestiltskin, then he might think he can manipulate the family loyalties of Snow and Emma.

I sort of trust Snow and Emma's moral compasses, but magic has a weird effect on people on this show. And despite his last-minute attempt to redeem himself with Belle and Baelfire before death, Rumple seemed back to his old self once his health returned and his dagger was restored.

I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere in his devious mind that's a plan. He is certainly one of the most convoluted and twisty characters I have seen...a real confusion of the desire to revert to the "best version" of himself and the temptation that power presents. I think that without Belle to keep him focused on his better nature, the power of magic will make him just as apt to try to manipulate Emma and Snow as not.
I think Snow is in for some very difficult times in any case.
I need to get myself some OUAT icons

Belle is out of the game for the moment, but now there is Baelfire to consider, and Baelfire was his original conscience.

Not to mention that Baelfire actually cares, on a personal level, for Emma.
