"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
So the reason i got some small hope is because no matter how much the network might hate Neal or love Hook, if the show was cancelled, shouldn’t the writers be allowed to bring whoeevr they want for the finale and fimish THEIR story however they want?
Sure. and quite a few dead character are returning for the finale but the other issue if MRJ himself; he’s still filming something across the pond right now, if I recall correctly and I’m not so sure if he’d want to come back anyway. He gave an interview not long ago about the toxicity of OUAT fandom and the shipping wars. Coming back and more or less upsetting what CSers see as a happy ending (marriage, baby) is only going to produce untold rage at him and if I were him, I’d stay well clear of it.
