I wonder if Neal gave Hook instructions on how to get Emma to trust him by sending her over to his apartment to retrieve something.I think what ends up happening she sees their Dream catcher by chance (mirror how she found it the last time unexpectedly) which ultimately leads to her taking note for the first time that she doesn’t have the swan necklace on. Therefore buying what he has been trying to tell her. Potential for hopeful some Captain Fire development now thinking about it. Will Hook play up or downplay Neal to Emma given that cursed Emma’s last memory of Neal is believing he never loved her and set her up to go to Jail.
Really good question, it’ll be interesting to see what Hook does or doesn’t tell her about her actual, un-Cursed relationship with Neal.
