I think we have to remember it all depends on Emma’s perspective. On who she likes, admires, and loves. The shows has thrown a lot of potential love interests to tease the viewers–August, Graham, and Jefferson. People go crazy over who to ship Emma with, but she herself, has never shown much interest in these men–Graham being an exception, but even then, I doubt it would have ever gone far romantically.
Captain Hook (while not as terrifying as Regina and Rumpelstiltskin were, nor on the same level as Cora is now) is still a villain, especially in Emma’s eyes. She doesn’t trust him–she seems to know him well enough to know that he will play both sides to get what he wants.
Also, Emma has never really show any interest in him. Everytime he flirted with her, she seemed either dismissive or annoyed with him.
And to be honest, Captain Hook does not seem to be the one who likes to stay in one place. He likes to travel–go to different places, probably steal (he is a pirate) and do whatever he wants. Emma is not like Milah–she is not the type to drop everyone that she loves (he mom, dad, and Henry) just to go see the world. If she were to go with Captain Hook, he would have to be willing to drop achor, and I don’t think he’d be willing to do that.
As for stopping his revenge for Emma, I don’t think that is a possibility, either. He has worked centuries for this–Rumpelstiltskin killed someone that he loved, cut his hand off, and humiliated him in front of his whole crew. He spent too much time to finally stop his vendetta.[adrotate group="5"]December 27, 2012 at 1:18 am #166378craxyfoxParticipant
agreed with Oncewatcher 😀
I like Hook and Emma because they have a fire inside them and are just two feisty people who can spark interesting situations 😉
Neal just seems like a bit of a dud as far as we have seen,and I agree that that pairing is just innocent. I don’t think that hook and Emma are gonna settle down in a nice Victorian house,get a dog,raise Henry and grow old together, but they help make the show edgier 🙂December 27, 2012 at 3:24 am #166393marilouParticipant
To me, OUAT has more depth than who is dating who. It’s not a soap opera, or a show like ‘Pretty Little Liars’, etc. (which I don’t watch)
The inclusion of classic liturature & film, Mythology, LOST nods, Stephen King nods, the significance of names (Neal Cassady, imparticular)………brilliant.
K&H are brilliant. I’ve loved them since their days on LOST.
anyhoot… maybe it could be a cora centric episode where we see how she became the queen of hearts in such a short period of time.
like a “The queen is dead, Long live the queen” type thing.December 27, 2012 at 4:56 am #166404PheeParticipant
Actually, I don’t think she needs any guy in her life this season. She just got Henry back, she found her parents, was whisked away to another world, and now has to build a relationship with her father. She doesn’t need a romantic relationship to throw into the mix, even from Neal. I do really want to see him in her life, but I think they’ve got a lot to work out and it’s going to take a long time. I’d be disappointed if they jumped in the sack after one episode, or even this season. So despite the flirting, I can’t see her falling for Hook, either.
THIS. Girlfriend already has enough emo baggage to sort out, so she doesn’t need a relationship on top of it all at this exact point in time IMO.
That being said, I’m cool with it if CaptainSwan becomes a thing for a while at some point, and I’m also hoping SwanThief have a shot at rekindling what they once had. I suspect that SwanThief will be endgame, because they set it up so that those two particular characters found each other despite being born in completely different times and living in completely different worlds, so I think they’re ultimately destined to be. I hope they don’t have an easy go of getting to their happily ever after though. I wouldn’t mind at all if they hook her up with Hook for a bit in the meantime, (it may work quite well, if she’s scared of feelings she still has for Neal, so decides to throw herself at the badboy instead to distract herself), because I think there’s chemistry there, (JMo has chemistry with just about everyone, I may not ship SwanQueen, but I can see where people got the idea for it), and I do love me some Hook. I wouldn’t want anything to do with his type IRL, but when it comes to fantasy pretend boyfriends, I’m all about the broody, angsty types. The brothers Winchester on Supernatural make me swoooooon. Anyway, guess it’s lucky for me that I’m not hardcore about who I ship Emma with, so I’ll be along for the ride no matter who they stick her with whenever. 😉

Okay, that’s the last thing I’ll say about it. Now, back to Manhattan. One good thing does come out of this. It’s great to know people can leave Storybrooke. That, will continue to make things ever more interesting.
I hope that it’s only temporary or that Gold had to jump through A LOT of hoops to get through the barrier. I think if everyone can get out whenever they want, I’d be kind of afraid that a lot of people will want to scatter and I like the idea of Storybrooke being kind of isolated.
I hope it’s a very specific set of circumstances that allows Rumple to skip out of town this one time, and not something that any and all of them can do at any time. Hopefully it’s some sort of combo of magic within Emma and Henry, which is why they both go. I’d hope that Emma wouldn’t have taken Henry unless it was absolutely necessary. If she knew beforehand that the guy they’re looking for is his father, then I doubt she’d have taken him, considering she’s told him the guy is dead and all. And if she thinks they’re just looking for Rumple’s son, why would she have involved Henry unless he was some mysterious part of the equation. Unless he’s just a stowaway, which is also highly likely.
