“Killian is fully aware that she’s not a prize to be won, he believes that she is his savior, he’s a better man because of her – the man of honor he used to be. But he’ll need an answer at some point, if only to know if he can still allow himself to hope.”
Oh I love that bit!
They might have been on the island for just 5 days, but Emma has changed everything for our sexy swashbuckling pirate who’s effectively becoming a hero thanks to the saviour. He gave up his centuries old vendetta to help save her son, he saved her father’s life, he helped rescuing Neal by admitting his darkest secret not knowing beforehand if it would work, and continues to help and support Emma as much as he can. The man of honour, Killian Jones is shining through and is able to hope again in finding happiness. He has set himself up in a very vulnerable position for letting everyone know of his true feelings for Emma, with only the hope that she might feel something for him in return.
Killian Jones might be a pirate but he’s so much more than that,vulnerable and sincere he lets his heart speak and tells her that “When I win your heart Emma, and I will win it – it won’t be because of any trickery, it will be because you want me.” Emma is clearly affected and who wouldn’t be after such a heartfelt declaration, as her voice softens and eyes flutter, sharing a smile she tells him it’s not a competition. Killian is fully aware that she’s not a prize to be won…
Emma shifts back the focus to Henry, as he’s her priority and Killian fully agrees with that argument. This scene showed not only what the pirate feels for the saviour, but also how Emma is feeling about him. Throughout the entire trip Emma has struggled with herself, her emotions and her parents. Back on the Jolly Roger when her parents told her that they’ll get Henry back, she snapped at them for being so overly optimistic. Yet when Killian tells her ‘and you will (get him back)’ in such a tone that simply oozes of pure confidence in her abilities, she instantly looks up to him for reassurance, wanting to know is he really thinks so – as his opinion really matters a lot to her.
This is just gold! & I LOVE the comparison between her parents & Killian as far as getting Henry back goes! & the bit about Emma finding a compass in Killian 🙂
I cant wait to get back to SB…. I’m kind of over NL now, we cant really move forward too much there anymore- the only catch is, by being back in SB, we then have the mid season break to endure *sigh* 😉
