But it’s so utterly stupid and senseless that when Emma parrots it back to him, I had to laugh for a good long while.
I’m just ceaselessly amazed with Bobby’s ability to deliver his lines with just the right amount of quiet thread and gravitas that for about 5 seconds you’re like “Yup, seems legit” 😉 Bless that man. But yeah, this is one harebrained plan right there.
If Hook gets his sins washed away by forgetting them with the help of Lethe, there will not be enough tables for me to flip.
Oh dear Lord, in what universe would this make any sense? Surely, even this writing team must realize that giving someone amnesia doesn’t automatically wash them clean of their past deeds? I mean, wasn’t this the point in that final scene in S1 when Dr Whale realizes he’s Victor Frankenstein, and is just sitting there utterly crushed by what he’d done? It was one of the main themes of S1 — that your past is always there to haunt your present. Also, they’re all old enough to have watched all those “killer-with-memeory loss” movies in the early 2000s (Memento, The Machinist etc). Ugh. I so hope they don’t got there, but when it comes to this show, I err on the side of pessimism.
