So the other night I was thinking about how CS has overcome so many things, not just as characters but as a unit, and how they’ve ended a lot of cycles and defied expectations in a magical sense.
There’s of course, on a more micro level, them breaking the pattern of loneliness and heartbreak in their own lives through knowing and loving one another. But they’ve also been the key to other, larger prophecies/spells/etc. There’s the fact that they were the ingredients needed to activate the hat in 4A. There’s the matter of them and their love being strong enough to defeat the darkness (which Merlin and Nimue had been unable to do) whose names were even on Excalibur together, and then paralleling Orpheus and Eurydice in the UW. And now they’re presumably being positioned as the ones who could overcome the “Savior is doomed” destiny.
I just love how, together especially, Emma and Hook are this force to be reckoned with that’s already the stuff of legend.
