Well you never have to worry about that again, Miss Swan. I will always save you.
SWITCH to a LONG SHOT with Emma and Regina staring at each other. And FINALLY in a moment of despair both women embrace into a hug as a beam of light takes over and
EXT. NEW YORK. DAY.
FADE into the streets of New York. CLOSE UP to a young man running down the streets, through some stairs as he enters a church. Henry in a FUCKING HURRY. And we SWITCH through a couple of scenes until he finds a white door. And we find Emma in a bride’s dress.
Did you find them kid?
Oh good! I can’t believe we left the rings at home.
There is a knock on the door and David walks in with a radiant smile on his face as he sees his daughter.
Oh Emma… You look beautiful.
She’s with Regina.
Is she ready?
They are. Everyone is waiting.
CUT to Regina standing in front of a mirror, as she admires her long white dress.
You’ve never looked more beautiful than today.
Thank you. For everything.
SWITCH to David and Emma beginning to walk through a hallway, SWITCH to Regina and Mary Margaret also walking through a hallway. Both woman walking. wearing beautiful white bride dresses. CUT to everyone waiting at the altar. CLOSE UP to some of our favorite characters, THEN we CLOSE UP to Robin and Hook dressed in tuxedos. The doors open and Emma walks in first with David by her side as he is walking her down the aisle, as her and Hook exchange looks and a small smile. SWITCH to Regina walking in with Henry next and also exchange looks with Robin. It’s obvious it looks like a double when SUDDENLY Robin and Hook step aside AND Regina and Emma turn to face each other knowing they finally found their happy ending. And slowly the image transitions into a drawing and we realize we are looking at a picture. In Henrys book.
A man sits next to a young girl (8-10 years of age) and we realize this is Henry reading to what will possibly be his daughter.
“‘I do’ said the savior and the evil queen. And so what started as a battle between good and evil turned into the most unique tale of all fairy tales. The story of how the savior and the evil queen fell in love. And they lived happily ever after.”
Again daddy, again.
Again? Oh no, it’s time for you to go to bed my little princess.
How about we visit your grandmother’s tomorrow and they can tell you how it all happened?
Henry smiles and turns the light off. SWITCH to the young girl who is sitting in her bed, still staring at the drawing of Emma and Regina as she finds something oddly familiar. CLOSE UP to a picture of Emma and Regina and she smiles and its clear she realizes who the evil queen and the savior are. She closes the book and settles it next to her bed. CLOSE UP to the tittle “Once Upon a Time” as a beam of light shadows the tittle.
Can I just say *deep sigh* how amazing it is to see the difference between Silver in season 1 and season 4 Silver. Remember, the reason why he stumbled into piracy was because of the Urca gold. He was a con man, a thief, a snitch and a very devious and intelligent one at that. He was all about himself and then he became all about himself AND the gold. I mean he went out of his way to get his share of that treasure, the commitment was REAL. Now that same man did not only go against Flint and dug up the remaining cache of said treasure, he also secretly smuggled the cache onto the Walrus to use it to go free the love of his life. Isn’t that just the most beautiful thing ever? It all came full circle. That gold has become so symbolic now.

Star Wars films are known to hold key visual storytelling elements. For those of you who don’t know, visual storytelling is a story told primarily through the use of visual media. Camera angels, color pallets, editing and many other methods are used for this type of storytelling. The Force Awakens uses this technique throughout the film, especially with Rey and Kylo Ren.
Choker shots are camera angles that show the facial features of the characters up close, making their emotions more prominent.
In TFA a choker shot of Kylo and Rey sticks out in one of the most intense scenes of the movie.
Kylo ren holds no anger on his face. His emotions seem to be of calmness and curiosity, which should be the opposite of what emotion he should be feeling at the moment. This shot here is to show that Kylo Ren is not filled with rage and hatred when fighting Rey, instead he is intrigued by her power and abilities. Here he allows her to find the force, while standing there in awe.
Rey is shot the same as Kylo though her emotions seem to change throughout the scene. The first image shows her trying to find the force with Kylo (This has been said by Daisy Ridely in a interview) calmness is prominent on her face. The next image shows her finally gaining control of the force, calm demeanor still showing, though the next shot shows her slashing Kylo.
Now you’re wondering, what purpose are these shots? What’s the significance? Well, the use of Choker shots are not common in Star Wars. Never in one of these seven films can I remember a shot of this angle besides this one. It’s even stranger considering it’s in a lightsaber fight. Can you imagine if there was a choker shot of Darth Vader and Luke while fighting? It would a very strange choice and give off the wrong vibe.
Choker Shots are mostly used in romantic films, which makes sense considering they’re used to show emotions up close. But why would this be needed in a lightsaber battle? We should already know their emotions right? They should angry and battle ready, yet that’s not the case. Kylo’s face is soft and gentle, Rey’s is like that as well. Strange camera angles to use for cousins, huh?
Kylo Ren carrying Rey is very strange for his villainous character. Why doesn’t he just let the stormtroopers drag her like they did Poe? Why does he carry her bridal style of all ways? It’s a very strange choice on the filmmakers part if they’re not trying to convey a future romantic relationship of sort. It can also show how Kylo is stronger then her at the moment, but why would the filmmakers need to show Kylo’s strength this way? They showed his strength and ruthlessness in the beginning of the film when he had his army slaughter a village. Heck, they even showed his strength in the scene before he started to carry her. It’s pretty clear his power doesn’t need to be shown anymore for us to understand, so that means the bridal carry must symbolize something else. Something to come in the future.
Last time I checked cousins don’t carry each other that way either.
Scenes where Kylo Ren and Rey are present together always seem to hold hearts in the background. Though at first it may just seem coincidental, but more and more show up. The film makers had to have deliberately put them there. The hearts can also be seen in scenes with Han and Leia, but they’re split down the middle. (I’ve only posted a few pictures with the hearts, there are many more out there)
Hearts can even be seen in Kylo’s eyes as he stares at Rey. This obviously isn’t something that can occur naturally, editing had to be done.
Comparing and Contrasting
If a scene is played out a certain way and then later on another scene is played out close to the other, more then likely the filmmakers want you to compare and contrast them. I believe this to be the case with Poe and Rey’s kidnapping scenes. Both play an important role in the film, but both play out differently then the other.
In the beginning of TFA, Poe is taken aboard Kylo’s ship as a prisoner. He is dragged by stormtroopers without a care from his captor.
When Rey is kidnapped instead of letting the stormtroopers drag her, Kylo Ren instead carries her like a bride.
In Poe’s interrogation room we can already see he is brutally beaten before Kylo even comes. Darkness is filled throughout the room and Kylo stands tall and threatening. When Poe refuses to give him any information on BB8, Kylo then uses the force to torture Poe into submission.
Rey awakens from her sleep, completely healthy with no bruises on her. The room is beaming with light and Kylo Ren is kneeling in front of her. When she asks him questions he answers truthfully, and when confronted about his monstrous mask he releases it from his head. When he finally has to get the map from her, he uses the force to look through her mind, saying to her “don’t be afraid, I feel it too.” In the novelization he even explains to Rey how he doesn’t want to go into her mind, and takes no pleasure from doing so. He even let her loose from her restraints in book, which is something he never does to Poe.
Both interrogation/kidnapping scenes are played out completely different from the other. One is hateful and non caring, while the other seems to be more gentle and kind. Kylo has no reason to treat them both differently, yet for some odd reason he does.
I’ve been compiling my favorite reads into a neat little (COUGH who are we kidding) list so that I don’t have to dig through my tags every time I want to go back and reread something and cry.
I just love these two and their relationship with each other. After some thought, I’ve decided to make this post public, so share the love if you feel so inclined! ^_^
The list goes approximately from canon material to speculation, like so:
