Honestly, it would have been SO EASY for her to kiss him (even just a brush of lips to the forehead) in the woods as a last ditch effort. And I wondered if perhaps they were unwilling to have an attempt at TLK not work for some reason… but that’s precisely what they did with Marian. So why not Neal, y’know? (And the fact that they told us it WAS true love in that very same episode makes it doubly interesting.)
It’s one of the many elements that makes me still hang on… it’s just too purposeful and not accidental (particularly as we witness CS making out every darned episode with zero TLK-style effects. Side note: are they the only duo who kissed during the spell of shattered sight? Can’t remember.) Just not EVER a single ANYTHING present-day… yeah.
RG? Text? Somebody? Please come save Jo before I convert her to the dark (light) side :p
Cause this story needs some mending & a better happy ending...
