I’m just interested in the CS shipper view of this, rather than trying to cause trouble. I’ve seen in this thread that it’s believed that a theme of CS is choice. How is Hook telling Emma that “WHEN he wins her heart” and “He WILL win it” giving Emma any semblance of choice in the matter?
I’d also like to add:
He also ended it with.
“It will not because of trickery. It will be because you want me.”
In other words, the choice is still Emma’s. If she wants Hook to be there, he will continue to be there. If she wants him to back off and give her space, he’ll do that too. (He did this after their first kiss. He gave her space). Everything is about her choice. If she wants Hook, if she wants to be with him, that’s her choice.
There is nothing wrong in Hook letting her know that she will have to make a choice at some point, because the reality is, she will have to. It probably won’t happen now but once Henry is saved and they’re all back in Storybrooke, she will have to make a choice.
