Ok while it’s nice that Adam’s all “SwanFire meeting was destiny!” in that tweet…they STILL went and had him die in the WishWorld without Henry even meeting him which, given that it’s supposedly Emma’s WishWorld, is infuriating. There is actually a real simple solution here, writers. When Henry wishes his father were there Emma could just say “Baelfire is off [insert irrelevant plot point here] and even though he and I are no longer together I know he’s proud of you today, Henry.” Look, I solved it. Bae’s alive and plays an active role in Henry’s life, Emma and Neal aren’t together in order to appease the shippers on the other side of this great divide, Regina is still the one who saves Emma from the WishWorld to appease still the OTHER shippers, and Hook will likely show up in the WishWorld and make moon eyes at Emma (and vice verse) to give the ratings/ad buyers/ABC soulless vampires their CS fix and everyone leaves before Bae comes back to WishWorld Casa Charming, thus getting MRJ out of having to appear. My god. Why don’t I write this show?
And while we don’t know if this world will exist after Emma and Regina leave, even if it does, Baelfire has a built-in-reason to stay, and Emma and Regina one to leave. The same one actually. Baelfire has a son, who’s maternal grandparents just died, paternal grandparents are evil, and will soon be motherless. They could even have a touching farewell. Emma and Regina keep talking about how they don’t to orphan their Henry. While this is a version of their Henry, he won’t be completely orphaned as long as his father is around. And do Baelfire and Henry really want to immediately follow Emma, who is following Regina, who killed Emma’s parents?
