Emma’s words hurt like hell, not because they made me lose hope, no. I’ll never give up on this ship. It hurt because I saw her desvastated. I saw an insecure little girl who wanted to run away and cry behind a tree. That’s how her past makes her feel. I need to see the fierce woman she is, not a scared puppy.
ST/SF shippers must be really happy to hear that. Shame on you if you think that was romantic. That actually sucks. I can already see them coming at us, saying that’s why she’ll kiss Killian in the next episode. Oh well. Let’s see what happens next. Yes, she might still have feelings for him, but I saw her pretty pissed off too. That’s the reason why I don’t see her forgiving him anytime soon, or running to him in slow motion. If Neal can’t forgive his father who says Emma’s supposed to forgive him? Jmo said it herself, it won’t be as easy as seeing each other and being in love like they were, and she knows the character better than anyone.
Sorry Neal but week after week I find myself liking you a little bit less and less. It’s funny, the things you said to your father, did it ever occur to you that’s exactly how Emma has always felt? You know what was like being alone? Living in the streets? Giving birth while being tied, in jail? Knowing that you left her behind? You left the girl you loved abandoned because you were a coward. So don’t try to make your father feel like crap because guess what? You did the same thing. Ha. True love my ass.
On the other hand, Killian’s learning from the best. ‘If there’s one thing I’ve gleaned from you hero types, it’s that there’s always hope’ HOPE. The magical word. Who is giving Emma hope now? Killian. Who destroyed her hopes and dreams? Neal. We always knew a love triangle was coming, well, here it is. We know pretty damn well how these three are, so I don’t wanna see anyone leaving the ship. Our pirate is the one who fights, the brave man. The guy who only wanted to exact revenge on the Dark One is the one who has hope now. Character development, you got it Killian.
I’m telling you guys, don’t ever lose hope. The ignore button is there for a reason, don’t give the haters the pleasure of getting you down.
This story is just starting. It’ll hurt but it’ll be worth it. Emma deserves an epic story and she’ll have it, with Killian. It won’t be easy and there will be drama and angst because it’s a real story. It’s not a fairytale. It’s about two fucked up people finding their way home.
