Let’s examine a few important CS moments/milestones:
- First kiss - In the same episode, we learn Neal is alive.
- “There’s not a day will go by I won’t think of you.” “Good.” - Separated by a year and a curse in which Emma nearly gets engaged to a flying monkey.
- Emma tells Killian she’s tired of living in the past and actively flirts with him - his lips have just been cursed by Zelena.
- The kiss outside Granny’s - Marian reveal a few minutes later that causes Emma to put the brakes on their relationship for the next few episodes.
- First date - Killian’s “cursed” hand.
- Emma says “I love you” for the first time - Immediately becomes the Dark One and is transported to another realm.
- “I DO want a future with you.” - Killian dies a few minutes later and is turned into a Dark One against his wishes.
- “All sins can be forgiven when someone loves you.” - The entire ending of “Birth” JFC someone hold me.
- “I love you” in a Nobody Is In Mortal Peril Scenario - They go home and make out for 30 seconds before that fucking dirigible ruins everything.
- Killian is angsting over whether David will accept him as Emma’s potential husband but eventually gets an enthusiastic “Hell yeah!” from his future father-in-law - Five minutes later he learns he murdered David’s father in cold blood.
- Killian seeks help and tries to do the right thing and works up the courage to tell Emma - Unplanned proposal because he can see how much she wants it, and keeps a secret 0.25 seconds after Emma says “no secrets.” Is overjoyed that she says yes for approximately three seconds before the Furrowed Brow of Self-Loathing and Awful Secrets returns.
If any of us are salty about current events or negative about prospects for future episodes, this is why.
LET CAPTAIN SWAN LIVE.
