As fun as it’s gonna be to see how Emma and Snow reconnect and start to bond I hope down the line Emma gets to bond with her dad too. Henry is gonna get to be close to his grandfather and that’s cool but Emma and David weren’t all that close in season 1 and now they start off apart once again. I wonder how it would have been if it had been Charming that followed through the portal and Snow was left behind with Henry? Of course that would now leave Snow in charge of the town as it looks like David is gonna have to take charge but still.
I thought about that too, but honestly, I think Emma needs ‘someone’ she can at least tentatively rely on within her family dynamic, Henry is to young & MM was her best friend who she had started to consider family already.
I think Snow & Emma need to have some connection Before Emma tackles Charming & being a full time Mum, she needs at least one person she has some sort of give & take relationship with to help things move along, other wise she’ll just be internalising things again & feel ganged up on- she’s more likely to open up to Snow/MM than Charming on account of their previous relationship- remember Charming is still peeved at being cursed & going through all that, as well as guilt & shame at what he put Snow/MM through, he has issues he needs to work through & he’s only being a Dad for what 2-3hrs & now he has to figure out how to raise a 10yr old 😉
Yeah that’s true the transition for MM and Emma maybe awkward but at least they have something to build on which at least would make it easier. That’s why Emma and Charming reconnecting will probably have to happen sometime down the line. The Henry and Charming relationship look like it’s gonna be fun anyway but down the line I’m looking forward to seeing more of Emma and Charming repairing their relationship.
