Well I personally think this episode confirmed CS as true love.
We know he loves her. We still aren’t clear on Emma’s feelings. Which is why I say Hook is her Mr Right Now. I need convincing he is her Twoo Wuv, but it’s certainly possible.
Captain Swan is a lot of sparks and UST from both parties, but the only declarations of love have come from one direction: his.
Emma’s feelings are not so clear. What is clear is that she wants him, hence why I’ve dubbed him her Mr Right Now (on the kitchen counter….!) But there haven’t been declarations of love. If anything, we’ve had Emma declare her love to Neal albeit with an enormous disclaimer: I love you more than anything but I wish you were still dead because it hurts too much.
This is what I like about this show. It’s open to interpretation.
“I won’t forget you Swan.” “Good” (don’t you dare forget me Hook)
or “I won’t forget you Swan.” “Good” (that’s nice… you weird man.)
“I love you more than anything but I wish you were still dead”
or “I love you more than anything but I wish you were still dead”
It’s not clear cut. It is very much, like someone noted earlier, like Han and Leia. “I love you!” “I know” – that’s one of the most accurately romantic lines ever! He didn’t need to say anything else because he said it non verbally, but audiences had several years of fangasming between Empire and Jedi to dissect whether he meant “of course you do, I’m the best thing since sliced bread” or “I know you love me and I love you”
That is basically what is happening here with Neal and Hook and Emma. I’m totally OK with this.
…. as long as she eventually gets to “have” Hook. On the kitchen counter. 😉
