I can’t stop thinking on how these scenes were like a reversed images of one another. Emma going down the stairs happy, in oppose to Emma going up sad. Hook placing the ring on her finger and she smiles, versus she takes it off in sadness. Even the order of the things were reversed.
But… there was another thing that was reversed here, in the “happy” scene there was a lie between them. In the “sad” scene it was the truth who came between them.
As much as it was painful to see her taking off the ring from her finger, I actually liked that scene better because it was an open moment, which is what CS do best. You already know I didn’t like that proposal, well, funny enough, I did like the scene we got from the last episode. Because when the truth is what standing between them, they will work it out, when there’s a lie it’s just a matter of time before things will fall apart.
