I’m a pessimist by nature and A&E haven’t really given me reason to have faith in them. They did screw with the story of one of their central couples all for the sake of CS after all. We’ll see though. I will happily eat my words if proven wrong.
This is a bit of a floof family moment (pretty much the ultimate moment). But I think how Belle treats Neal, shows how much she loves Rumple. She welcomes him with open arms (literally).
Reminder: this is their first real meeting and they already look like a family. Look in the last GIF how they smile at each other. They aren’t awkward or anything, they are sharing a family hug!
Yes, absolutely. If he was still framed as a bad person whose crimes were not being romanticized at all, I would have been quite alright with the character. Even if he did have interest in Emma, as long as his negative actions were being brought up and properly addressed, it would have been much, much easier for me to watch Hook.
Oh god that would make Hook about five thousand times more palatable.
I agree. A major issue with Hook’s character is that his entire existence now revolves solely around Emma. His vendetta with Rumple has been forgotten. Baelfire is dead, so his ties to (and betrayal of) Bae will never be addressed. He’ll just continue to lie by omission about it. Hook will also do nothing for other characters unless he can then ingratiate himself with Emma, as he showed by trading Ariel’s true love for his ship when Emma wasn’t around.
Emma, Emma, Emma. Hook does not love her; he’s obsessed with her.
REGINA KILLED HENRY. If anyone doesn’t have the right to call Henry their son it’s Regina!
How dare you?
Fuck you, Confessor. The instant that Neal found out Henry was his son, he abandoned his entire life in Manhattan, went to Storybrooke and tried to bond with his son. He sacrificed himself at the portal so that Emma wouldn’t fall in with him and leave Henry to grow up without BOTH his biological parents. His first thoughts upon waking up from his gunshot wound were of Emma and Henry. He rode on a fucking shadow to go to fucking Neverland, the place of his nightmares, and the FIRST thing he did was go face-to-face with Pan to get Henry back. He fought like hell in the EF to try to find a way back to Emma and Henry because he so desperately wanted to be a part of his son’s life. He woke up in a hospital, barely had five minutes to process where he was or what had happened, and he was already asking about Henry. Because his son was THE absolute most important fucking thing to him. Neal Cassidy may not have been a father for long, but he was a wonderful father who went through extraordinary lengths in the name of protecting his son. Don’t you EVER fucking try to tell me he didn’t have the right to call himself Henry’s father.
Neverland AU ♔ Regrets
"One good deed can’t cancel out all of the bad. No matter how much you may want it to."
OMG this is mind blowingly good. This was what I imagined we would see before the episode aired. Hook and Bae confronting each other after all these years. It would’ve been sooo epic. Seeing these heart felt emotions play out. Watching fairytale character go through what we, the common folk, go through.
But what did we get? A high school slapstick fest about two guys fighting over a girl. When I first watched it, it really threw me a left curve, that made my face go…
Two grownup children that are harping about who kissed who and “She’s in love with me!” “No she’s in love with me!” arguments that just come of embarrassingly dumb, especially seeing two biologically aged 30 year olds guys act like this.
I have to say…What… the… actual… fuck A&E? Were you and your team passing around a bong and being stoned when you wrote that disaster?
This is fucking Canon in my eyes. CANON!
