Lena’s very accurate episode recap in emojis
Hi, I'm a Captain Swan Fan from the UK. Been browsing the Tumblr site for a while now for my favourite couple before giving into temptation and joining. Also love shows like Castle, Sleepy Hollow, Arrow and other wonderful fantasy shows.
In a ship defined by it’s little moments, I think that was just one of them.
Meaning—there have been a lot of times both Hook and Emma have realized how much they’re attracted to each other, both physically and emotionally, and those are their little moments.
But I agree with you, mostly—I think Emma is definitely reeling in the date. Reeling in how much she liked him, being normal and going on a nice date, and allowing herself to feel—and how right it went.
I think she is realizing she loves him, but I also think that moment being it would be underselling it to the audience. It was too quick and too subtle for most people to take it as that. Emma realizing (saying) she loves him is going to be a big moment, with a big swell of music and all that.
Because he’s going to tell her??? LOL
Compare this to the Zelena situation — Hook felt as if he wronged Ariel in the year without Emma, Zelena KNEW it haunted him and she manipulated him into doing her bidding. The Charmings also suspected him. He felt backed into a corner and he didn’t tell Emma and he almost LOST her because of it.
And now, Rumple is using the same tactic. He knows Killian has doubts about himself and his place at Emma’s side and he manipulated Killian into doing his dirty work. But this time, the Charmings think he’s changed. Emma thinks he’s changed. He really HAS to come clean about this.
Ask yourself, what even is the point of this storyline if he DOESN’T come clean about it? Colin said we’d be happy with his development this season and I believe him. I believe in Killian.
