In Storybrooke of all places you’d think that Emma’s first conclusion would be ‘something bad happened to him’. A stable person without such a fear of abandonment would absolutely worry about that first before deciding that they’ve been abandoned. But Emma, my poor darling Emma, this is what ALWAYS happens.
He just left seems the most logical choice because… they always leave.
DO YOU ALL KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?????
WE GET TO FACE BOTH OF THEIR GREATEST FEARS. KILLIAN FACES HIS FEAR OF NOT BEING GOOD ENOUGH AND EMMA FACING HER FEAR OF BEING ABANDONED. IN ONE EPIC REUNION.
If I focus on that hard enough I can possibly… possibly turn off the caps lock.
