Prince Thomas couldn’t help but be enchanted by the beautiful Cinderella. Even when the magic faded and she returned to her simple life he sought her out and made her his bride. The pair had found True Love and were happily wed, but soon she became pregnant and she had no choice but to reveal her secret to him. She had pledged the life of their first-born child to Rumplestiltskin. But Prince Thomas would not stand for that, so he convinced Cinderella to work with Snow White, Prince Charming and The Blue Fairy to trap Rumplestiltskin. The trap worked, but The Dark One somehow used his powers to make Thomas disappear until such time as he was finally paid in-full.
