You know what I love about Neal? He expects nothing. Emma let him out of the cage and he hugged her. He didn’t try to kiss her, he just held her because she needed it. She needed that comfort. And outside, again. He established that he’ll fight for her, but made no claims. He made no moves. He knows her inside and out and he asks nothing of her, giving her time and loving her all the same. That is a man.
