When you start to watch the drama but it ends quickly
i think ppl say they're disposable because wish!hook/alice don't mean much to the main family/drama. and yeah once everyone is awake..i really doubt wish!hook and alice are gonna hop on over to storybrooke, somewhere they've never been or care about like the audience clearly does. people want to see the real killian,emma,snow and charming reunite with their family. alice&hook are prob gonna make their own lives back in EF2, which i'm all for btw.
