"Once Upon a Tim" fans have wondered since the first season where Rumpelstiltskin gets his ruthlessness and often times, rude behavior from. On Sep. 12 Wetpaint shares that fans will likely see that when Rumpelstiltskin's father, Colin, is introduced through flashbacks in episodes eight and 11.
Colin is being described as dissatisfied, selfish, and ruthless, which doesn't seem surprising as many of those same qualities fans have seen in Rumpelstiltskin as well. While we're not sure how Colin will play into the season, it might provide some insight into why The Dark One acts as he does and could so easily choose magic over his own son.
It also seems likely that since the season is being split into two 11 episode parts, that Colin could be the bridge that brings the two halves of the season together. The first half of "Once Upon a Time" will will air from Sep. 29-Dec. 8 and the second half will resume on March 9. Many are not happy that there is going to be such a long gap, hopefully ABC has a plan on how to fill that time before they end up losing watchers before the second half airs.
Are you interested in seeing Colin this season? What do you think his and Rumpelstiltskin's relationship is like?
