Following the images from the upcoming Once Upon a Time episode “The Crocodile” showing Belle kidnapped, here are more preview stills!

The new pictures show part of what happens in the episode: in Storybrooke, Charming is helping out the dwarves in the mines, while in flashbacks Captain Hook has seemingly kidnapped Rumpelstiltskin’s wife Milah (played by Rachel Shelley) – but it looks like she’s gone willingly! Which is probably heartbreaking for Rumpel and Bae to witness.
It doesn’t stop Rumpelstiltskin from seeking out Hook later though, as we can see from the set of behind-the-scenes images released from the episode:

These show Rumpel meeting Hook again, on his ship it seems, at a point in the future when he has got his magical powers. What has happened to Milah in the meantime? Allegedly she’s dead, but who knows with this show!
Of course as we’ve already seen from the first set of stills, in present day Storybrooke Belle will be kidnapped by Smee, although we’re not yet sure if Hook is still in fairytale land or not. Is Hook and the pirates attempting to even out the score after what Rumpel did to them in the past?
The official episode description of “The Crocodile” reads:
Belle’s disgust over Mr. Gold’s continuing thirst for power comes to a head, and she threatens to leave him if he can’t change his evil ways; the dwarves pick up their axes and try to find fairy dust in the Storybrooke mine; and a reunion with an old acquaintance could prove to be Belle’s undoing. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale land that was, Rumplestiltskin attempts to save his wife, Milah, from being kidnapped by a band of cutthroat pirates
This will air next Sunday. This week it’s time for “Lady and the Lake” – an episode which looks like it’ll focus mainly on Emma and Snow!
