3x20 / 6x09
That scene in 3x20 was maybe the most sad scene inside of a happy one I ever seen. It was after they defeated Zelena, and Snowing, Emma, and Henry were in the room excited to be with baby Neal safe and sound. But you just can’t help it but getting sad when you watch Hook looking at them from the outside, wanting so badly to be included, to be an integral part of this family and joy.
And then you have 6x09. Not only he’s included, he’s entering aside Emma, one of the first (and sadly only, at least in that point), to meet the new baby. He’s totally in the “inner circle” this time around.
I just love seeing Hook getting all these little closures along the way. Because in 3x20 he deserved to be included, yet he felt an outsider, and people let him feel this way (or at least didn’t care enough to include him, and actually invite him in to meet the baby). But now he’s not only there, he’s actually Belle’s best friend.
This is too beautiful.
