That many of you also know how i think and that is to let fan service work and confirm Cs until the end of the season as true love and for S4 show the relation development.
If the Sneak Peek is anything to go by, Emma still has no interest in being in a relationship with Hook. They would have to give her a rapid fire 180 degree turn around if they’re actually gonna put CS together by the end of the season, which is only 6 eps away, which will probably be about a week or so in SB time. I will concede that it’s likely fan pandering just to give CSers some more screen time shared between their couple, but I remain unconvinced that CS is actually going to become a romantic relationship. It would be OOC for Emma to suddenly want a relationship with him before season’s end. And I know they’ve been writing people OOC lately, but I’m basing this on a scene that’s from an upcoming episode, which proves that even with Neal gone, Emma still doesn’t wanna date Hook, in fact she’s still planning to leave town, (and it’s not like Hook knows how to use a cell phone or Skype, so I don’t imagine she’d anticipate keeping in close contact with him after she’s left SB), so judging by what we currently know, that’s the trajectory they’re writing for Emma’s character in regards to Hook. So I can’t buy into the idea that they killed off Neal to make way for CS to be endgame instead, which plays into why I can’t believe completely that Neal’s not coming back.
Wow..sorry for the drabble I just needed to get this of my chest after an interesting discussion with my boss about all this mess.
I love your drabble, and your boss sounds wise! See how easy it would have been for them to have Neal die in a more respectful way!
