Also I agree Rg all this happiness and hope stuff is so perceptive because let’s say characters story got switch henry died in the end will this show be about hope to all. For some it might for others it would be tragic. Let’s say Emma died but you see her at peace in the afterlife realm watching her family grow and expand as some celestial being. For some that be hopeful for others not so much. And some it’s bittersweet. Another example what if Hook really remained dead. The other characters mourn his loss but eventually find happiness with those who are with them. Some will find it about hope others will scream hope is loss. At the end as Rg remarked hope is subjective to perception and personal wants/desires. I hope for what I think and want to occur therefore if it happens it’s hope and good and happy ending True to story etc. Etc. but if it’s not then it’s tragic and broke all sense of hope every that this show try to convey.
I agree completely. What I would have hope for is not the same as anyone else or at the very least is vastly different as many others.
On a final note Emma is way more relevant and important than any other character on the show. Don’t compare her to the other characters that have died on the show. She is the most important character on the show, she’s the focal point of the show. She’s the reality of the show. Without Emma Swan, there’s no OUAT. She’s also connected to several people and without her all of our characters would not get happy endings. Hook, Snowing, Henry, etc will not get a happy ending. Sorry Neal fans but you cannot ever compare Emma to Neal. Also just saying but Henry was never close to Neal. Yeah he was his father but he barely spent any time with him. Sorry. Sure he misses him but it’s nowhere near the level he would feel if he lost Emma.
Of course you are entitled to your opinion, but you need to understand and respect that others will have a different one. I for one am not a huge Emma fan and definitely not a Hook fan and could care less if they both left the show for their happy endings. I would say without Rumple there is no OUAT, others will say without Regina there is no OUAT, others would say without Henry there is no OUAT (I can see that argument) It is all opinion. As for the comment about Neal not being in Henry’s life and therefore not as important, I would say that yes that is true and that is what is incredibly sad and not hopeful. Neal whether you liked him or not was important to the show and was connected to many of the main characters. His death caused a lot of people not to get their happy endings. Rumple stated in Season 3 straight out that Bae was his happy ending, my point is, that anytime a character dies someone looses their happy ending. Robin’s death left Rolan without any parents (not very happy) Hades left Zelena without her budding relationship (not very happy) and Bae left Rumple in a complete and utter downward spiral which he is still struggling with, Henry without a father, and Emma without her love (none of that was happy)
