Once Upon a Time Recap: Belle Goes Dark and Robin Hood Steals from Rumpelstiltskin

Although he lied to her about healing her, she agreed to get to know him better. But Regina stepped in and revived Belle's cursed memories, convincing her that she was a free-spirited girl named Lacey who likes to hustle pool and hang out in bars. Of course, Gold was furious when Lacey didn't seem very interested in him and confronted Regina about her actions. But she reminded him that he's trying to be on his best behavior around his son, thereby preventing him from taking revenge. Step #1 was to recruit David to help him get Lacey to fall in love with him. While it's clear that Gold has nothing in common with Lacey, he did (at David's urging) convince her to go on a date with him again so that he could "cure" her with "true love's kiss". It looked like it was going well, but she left in the middle of their dinner to make out with another man and then told Gold that she would never be this "Belle" that he loved.
