The more I watch of their stuff the more I am mystified by it. Hook has his moments, but I am noticing more and more that when it comes to Emma, Hook oscillates between skeevy and pathetic. He needs to find himself a new-Milah…
I think he thinks Emma is a new Milah, right? I was really turned off in ep. 312 (?) when he answered Emma’s question on why he came back with “For you Emma.” He didn’t say “for you and Henry”. Let’s not forget he’s into the hott moms but not into their kids. Kids cramp the adventurous lifestyle. And God forbid the mom should up and die and leave him feeling “responsible”…
Some might be genuinely sad for those of us who like Neal, even if they don’t like him–but for me, and possibly for Phee and some others, we like Hook! We like him in a different way than others, and have a different read on his character, and I had different hopes for how they’d write him. So I don’t see total happy dances in my future no matter who.
Agree. I like Hook. A lot. I’m glad they’ve kept him around as opposed to banishing him to the little room where they keep all the other discarded characters, but they need to give him something legit to do other than make inappropriate passes at Emma and stick his boot in his mouth around her family. I want him to redeem himself, find his happy ending. This is not something that happens in a half-season arc.
However, as I believe others have pointed out, Hook’s redemption must also involve Neal. He cannot be a father figure to Henry before admitting/regretting that he failed Bae. This would line up with the theme chez Snowing/Rumple/Neal/Emma all struggling with their own feelings of failure as a parent.
It’s a Dell running XP posting via Chrome. I did make one post (I think) from my iPhone 4S but the formatting seems to be a board thing – the span tags etc that I see in a lot of posts, especially ones involving quoting. I think it’s just a board quirk but I like things to look pretty so it drives me nuts… I just have to edit 57 times until I get random tags out of my posts
Are you using the Text editor or the visual editor? I had trouble w/my first post last night, but it seems to have fixed it by clicking the text tab and entering my tagging there.
