OUAT is continuing to parallel Emma with Robin and Regina with Hook.
Regina and Hook are both trying to hold onto a relationship that isn’t real, and they are pressuring their partners into being someone they’re not. At least Regina seems to be realizing that the relationship with Wish Realm Robin is not working out and that he can’t be something he’s not:
On the other hand, Emma is being fake so that she can give Hook the happy ending that she thinks he deserves. Similarly, Wish Realm Robin is literally not real, but so far he’s showing no interest in trying to be someone he’s not.
Hopefully Emma and Regina will soon follow in Charming’s footsteps and get to this point:
Bonus points if Emma parallels MM in season 1:
Btw this happened because David lied to MM like Hook is currently lying to Emma…
