Flashback time. Rumpelstiltskin is actually a cute little boy; how is this possible? Rumpel’s dad leaves him with yarn spinning ladies, giving him only a doll to remember him by. The doll, people! His Wilson! Rumpel is very good at spinning yarn. “He could spin for a king!” I’m guessing this will important in a later episode? Or it’s just to tie in his magic spinner? Not sure.
