I really loved this moment.
Regina and Emma work really well together. And I love when they work together and they do too, I’m sure, but this moment was so important. Because it shows how much they truly believe in each other. Regina knew Emma would get their transportation ready and that she didn’t really need her for that. She didn’t even blink when she came back and the wardrobe was ready.
Emma on the other hand didn’t waste any time going to look for Regina. She knew Regina could take care of herself, even in a place where she was wanted for murder. And when Regina came back she wasn’t surprised, it actually seemed like she had expected Regina back earlier.
They both trusted each other and believed in each other and made it look as easy as breathing. And I love it.
I also love the contrast of Regina thinking that everyone was better off without her in the Wish Realm and then how clear it was that Emma wasn’t. And how she clearly disagreed with Regina herself.
This episode was all about belief. And the transformation/change/growth that can occur as a result of it. And the subtle but central belief we have in this episode that spans the entirety of it, is that of Emma and Regina in each other.
