"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
Both times Emma’s kissed Hook, Neal’s been dead. Coincidence? I think not.
AND both times Hook and Emma kiss, she has been reminded that Neal was dead only moments before.
305 = the episode right before was at the cave where she declared to her parents that she never stopped loving him.
322 = right before, she tells Rumple that she loved Neal wanted to save him AND right before that? “Neal was right” BOOM magic.
