Dei Gratia Regina (often abbreviated to D. G. Regina) is Latin for By the Grace of God, Queen. This pshrae appears on the obverse of all Canadian coins to the right of the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. HistoryCoins minted from 1902 till 1910 under King Edward VII read "D. G. Rex Imperator" which is Latin for "By the Grace of God, King and Emperor". From 1911 to 1936, under George V, it read "Dei Gra Rex Et Ind Imp" which stands for Dei Gratia Rex et India Imperator which means "By the Grace of God, King and Emperor of India". From 1937 to 1947 under the reign of George VI, it read either "Dei Gra Rex Et Ind Imp" as before or was abbreviated "D. G. Rex Et Ind Imp". From 1947 to 1952, still under George VI, after the condeferation of India, they read "Dei Gratia Rex". From 1952 till 1964, it read "Dei Gratia Regina" under Queen Elizabeth II. From 1964 on, it was abbreviated on all coins to the current pshrae of "D. G. Regina".


They have referred to Emma as 'the savior'...maybe Rump brought her to town because she is the ONLY one that can truly defeat Regina and the curse. True love isn't only between two adults in love--there is true love between a mother and a son, as well...

But if the curse is broken, doesn't it mean he'd have to go back in Fairytale Land, where he'll become the magical Rumplestiltskin again, and away from his boy?
Oh but here's the catch. Rumple never said that would happen. WE KNOW NOTHING on what will happen if the curse breaks. Just like in his deal with Regina for framing MM, he chose his words VERY CAREFULLY when making his deal with snow white in pilot episode. :)


Maybe Gold has collected all those magical artifacts so he can destroy them--after he finds his son--and prove to Baelfire once and for all that he agrees magic comes with too high a price and the world is better off without it. What if he made sure he knew the one person who could break the curse would be there, so he'll be able to leave town and go look for his son! Plus, breaking Regina's curse might break her magic altogether.


@missmontyh, maybe he wasnt able to find a way to just get himself to our world but didnt nessicary want everybody else to be there since nobody there liked him cause of his powers so he made a loophole so eventually the other characters could go home to their happy endings

@MissMontyH I agree! I'm upset because I really though August was his son..who is he and what is he up to? Is he really dying? I also really want to see his real son, I hope it's a hot actor, the show has been seriously faulted in the area since they killed off the only hot guy..and he was ridiculously hot. Hard shoes to fill.


Could be because he knows that his plan failed and he's hoping to get a happy ending with son


One thing I wonder about after this episode: if Rumpel's plan was to end up in the world where's no magic (where his son is), why did he put everything in motion to make Emma come to town, the one who should be the one to break the curse? He gave Henry to Regina, and probably knew who his mother was. But if the curse is broken, doesn't it mean he'd have to go back in Fairytale Land, where he'll become the magical Rumplestiltskin again, and away from his boy? Now that we know why he created such a curse and gave it to Regina, I don't understand why he would bring the one person who could break it.
