I’ve read the recap and I wouldn’t say ‘There’s a Emma/Regina - Elsa/Anna pallalel, it means they’ve finally reduced to SQ relationship to sisters’ just yet.
We have tons of SQ/Snowing parallels but we’re not screaming ‘see? SQ is True love as Snowing!’
So it works the other way around too. ;)
Simply because, as Jane Espenson explained last week in an interview, pallalels are metaphors, options, suggestions, not queer baiting or truths set in stone.
If you’re pissed off for the SQ/elisanna parallel….don’t be. Cause the parallel ends in the minute the scene ends.
What it stays after the scene ends is Emma doing all she can to make Regina happy and I can’t wait to see her trying!
