and she does but it doesn't save him

I’ve maybe been thinking about this a lot. Because what if it were Percy? And she comes back from a mission that’s just gone horribly wrong (people got hurt, people died) because of him and… what would she do? In that moment of confrontation does she pull the trigger or does she hold on to the conviction that he can be saved?

If you think for one second that Emma Swan would be able to go to the underworld, see all those people suffering and not try to help then I’m sorry but you don’t know her at all.

The fact that she’s going to help these people doesn’t take away from her quest to find Killian or from her feelings towards him and it definitely doesn’t mean she’s putting him in the background. It’s just Emma doing what she always does and being the savior.
