Can someone explain the glove reference to Waterfront? I am unfamiliar with the movie so I don’t understand it’s relevance.
I saw something about awhile ago on tumblr. I think it was, that he wasn’t being honest with Emma, he was pulling a fast one on her. And he wasn’t because she still doesn’t know everything about him. We know Neal’s from EF and we know Emma is too but how hard is it to explain it was a tough family situation or more about his parents without revealing the EF thing? Young Bae picked up drawing from his mother, Milah. How hard would it be to say to Emma, ‘I like drawing,’ Drawing isn’t place specific. I took drawing one and two in college and I’m not from the EF.
I think Neal was putting on the glove and taking it off in the same scene, which was odd.
I totally agree that Neal’s biggest importance was to Rumple’s story. We met Baelfire first before we met Neal; SwanThief/SwanFire started much later. The romance honestly, I always viewed as a secondary story; we learned more about the relationship so we could understand why Emma has walls and also to contrast her present relationship with Hook. That’s how I view Tallahassee, but the introduction of Neal didn’t mean, ‘this is Emma’s True Love.’ I got the opposite vibe.
