This might belong in the appreciation thread but I thought it better to just make this one.
Rumpelstiltskin is this chaotically playful prankster at first appereance(somewhat like Peeves from Harry Potter).
On the other hand, mr. Gold is this contained, serious man who usually just gives sarcastic one-liners(highly reminiscent of his role as Nicholas Rush in Universe).
1. Why are they so different? Even after everyone knew Gold's true identity, he still acts completely differently. Everyone else I've seen act just the way they did in the Enchanted Forest(with the exception of being in the "modern world" of course). What changed Rumpel/Gold so much?
2. Now that magic has been brought to Storybrooke, why is Gold still using that walking stick and looks like human?
3. Why on earth did Gold bring magic to Storybrooke when the only reason Baelfire went there is because THERE IS NO MAGIC.
