Rumple will never be able to have both his true love and son.
Belle loses her memories, Rumple is able to go find Bae/Neal. Neal goes through the portal, Belle gets her memories back.
With magic there is always a price. The only way he can be with both and have them all be safe is to give up magic.
“No,” replied the Beast, “you alone are mistress here; you need only bid me gone, if my presence is troublesome, and I will immediately withdraw. But, tell me, do not you think me very ugly?”
“That is true,” said Beauty, “for I cannot tell a lie, but I believe you are very good natured.”

Once Upon a Time Souvenir Magazine, Issue #2
I ordered my copy off of Amazon since my local Barnes&Noble is taking their slow, sweet time to get any copies.
titanmagazines.com, amazon.com, ebay.com, several comic book websites etc are all places online that are selling the magazine. Shop around to find the best deal.
I posted two of the Regina pictures from the magazine. There are a few more pictures of Regina, but all of them are photos we’ve already seen in the episodes.
WARNING! THIS MAGAZINE HAS A TOTAL LACK OF REGINA!
The magazine has interviews all the way down to Aurora, Graham, Grumpy the dwarf and King George, but no Regina. There isn’t even any Cora. Why is life so cruel? And why Graham? He’s already dead!
It has some really nice new photos of Belle and Rumpel with big interviews if you’re a fan of those guys. I’m not a Belle fan, but I liked her pictures.
There’s also interviews with Snow, Charming, and Hook. But no Emma.
This is not the magazine for Swan Queen fans, that’s for sure, because of the complete lack of Emma and Regina.
The episode guide stops at episode 16 of Season 2. I think they should have waited to release this magazine later so they could have all the episodes…and maybe add some bloody Regina and Emma stuff as well.
I still think it’s a nice magazine and worth having, but it lacks a certain “oomph” without Regina. Just think about how boring the show would be if Regina wasn’t in it and you’ll get what I’m feeling. I’d give Issue #1 a 10, while Issue #2 is a 5.
If you’re a Rumpel, Belle, Snow, Charming, or Hook fan, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this magazine.
There’s no information inside, but I assume they will make an issue for Season 3 eventually.
