But people don’t change that much. I still look like the same me now at 31 that i did at 21. I don’t look like a different person. And that is about the age we are talking about here. You don’t change that much.
And you are right. Emma may have lied about everything she said about Henry’s father except for one thing. She is angry at him. He did something that made her not want Henry to know him. I think that, of all that she said, is true. And i think that the only way she would be that angry is that she knew him well. They had a relationship of some kind. Whether he was married to someone else or they just went out for awhile, who knows, but i think she knew him well enough that she is still that angry with him.
Emma seems to trust August a lot, even though she met him, what 2-3 times? She seemed to be annoyed at him for “betraying” Mary Margeret, which means she already trusted him not to betray her. That impression doesn’t come from just 3 meetings. Especially such “cryptic” meetings.
