when I see one of the rules for it, and it was actually Rule No. 1: “It must have the quote, ‘I was an enemy of love. Love had only brought me pain. My walls were up, and you brought them down.”
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO WRITE THIS FREAKING LINE?! WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED A CS QUOTE?! WHY DID THEY HAVE TO FLICKER TO EMMA AND CAPTAIN PLOT DEVICE?!
This show makes me more angry than I should be.
Oh, that line, that stupid, nonsensical, idiotic line.
Because in flashback, we never saw Emma being HAPPY with Neal, nope, never so much as a half smile. OH WAIT. And we’ve never seen Emma have any happy moments with Henry, who she wouldn’t have at all if not for Neal, nope, that kid has only ever brought her pain. OH WAIT. And she’s never had any happy moments with her parents either, who she wouldn’t have found or ended up back with in present day if not for Neal’s actions, nope she’s never once been happy to be with her family. OH WAIT. And also in present day, we’ve never seen her show any sort of positive care or emotion where Neal is concerned, nope, not a single second of it. OH WAIT WHAT WAS THAT SCENE WHERE THEY WERE WALKING IN THE WOODS AND SHE WAS SMILING AND LAUGHING WITH HIM, OH WOULD YOU LOOK AT HER MASSIVE WALLS OF COMPLETE AND CONTROLLING MISERY DESTROYING HER WHENEVER NEAL IS INVOLVED. Pffft. Whatever.
GAH, yeah, that line makes me angry because it straight up CONTRADICTS WHAT THEY’VE PREVIOUSLY SHOWN. And you know a line is crap when it even makes me feel defensive on Milah’s behalf, because I pretty much just wanna drop kick that woman off a cliff, but it still pisses me off that they’re suggesting she never brought Hook anything but pain. His love for her brought him PLENTY of happy when they were together.
