I know this was Jmo’s last episode and she and Hook seemed to get closure, but is there more to their story they want to tell possibly? Hook told Regina, “If he knew what really happened, he’d drop everything and come back. She wants to let him get on with his life.” “What really happened”? That’s an odd way to speak about a pregnancy and why wouldn’t Emma want Henry to know he was going to have a half-brother? And she thinks he’d stop his life if he knew? Maybe it was just a badly written line and they were trying not to spoil the pregnancy “surprise,” but someone asked Adam on Twitter how this really explained Emma’s absence for the rest of the season and he responded that it would all make sense by the end of the season. He also said, “We’re fully aware that NOT seeing Emma needs to make sense logically given her character and who she is.” Is there more there?
That seems to clue us that Emma may have never been pregnant and that that is not really her we saw. And after all, she did not come through through the portal with the two.
