Now this way left field and may not be possible but what if during that time between Regina telling them that they’d all go back to FTL and seeing Emma and Henry off at the border, Neal ran into Regina’s office and got a piece of the magic bean plant to plant them again in FTL? I don’t know how he knows it was there (in Regina’s office) or if it is still viable but just what if?
I like it. He was the last person in FTL afterall
O__O That thought hadn’t even occurred to me! I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if it’s really Neal who sent Hook in his place, because he believes Emma made her choice when she didn’t show up for lunch at Granny’s in 3×10. Yet, Neal probably has some kind of plan to help reunite Emma and her parents. After all, this is the son of Rumplestiltskin, the mastermind behind the dark curse. And Neal is the one who came up with the plan of capturing the Shadow in NL to get home! If anyone can come up with a plan to reunite Emma with her family, it’s Neal! And when Emma finally remembers Neal and the sacrifices he made for her and Henry, she’ll be overcome with gratitude and appreciation for this wonderful, selfless, and giving man who would give his life just to see her and his son happy, even if it’s without him. He would rather see Emma happy with Hook but with her parents than for Emma not to know who she really is. Neal loves her and always will! *Believe in second chances!* *SF family feels!*
I know in the CS thread they were noting how Neal wasn’t in the last shot before the curse hit. It was just Hook, Snowing, and Regina as they looked behind them. This could explain why Neal wasn’t, he was off trying to find a way back to them
