Even though I’m moving on, I will never forget you. All because you were my first true love. And there will come a time in my life when I will thank you for that because by you breaking my heart, it made me a little bit stronger and you made me a little bit closer to finding the one that I’m meant to spend the rest of my life with. The scary thing is; all the pain you put me through, with the snap of your fingers I’d run back so fast. So I bet you love to know you can have me at any moment you want
Expecting OUAT to be all things to all people is an exercise in futility. They've done a lot of things right and they've handled others in unfortunate ways. This show will never be (and shouldn't be) counted on to solve the world's social ills. My opinion is that Killian comes from a time when asking a father for his blessing is what was done, it's what he knows. He's being respectful to a man that he had a rocky start with & they have become friends. Emma still has the final say in the matter.
