Neal had so many connections and ties on this show it’s not even funny. His importance does NOT hinge on whether Swanfire was endgame or not. There are a million different possibilities here, a million different paths the writers could have chosen to explore with this character. And none of them are contingent on Neal’s relationship with Emma. NOT. ONE.
THIS! This is why I never understand how on earth people can say that he was just a plot device who had no further use and his story was done. Nothing could be further from the truth. So much wasted potential with his character. *SIGH*
Or that his story is only tied to Rumple.
