I certainly need to talk about this moment further because of how subtle yet beautifully symbolic it was. Sometimes there are these tiny moments in which the plot can definitely move foreword without, but they’re meant to add a little something to the story that’s being told.
The thing with this moment that’s different from Tallahassee is the fact that it didn’t happen because of an accidental hug or awkwardness, it happened because Hook wanted to offer comfort. Killian had just placed his hook on to prepare for the upcoming battles just as Emma had put on her red leather jacket; thus, by carefully stepping forward and making sure not to cross his boundaries with her, he’s illuminating the beautiful fact that he’s going to be by her side treasuring her during every opportunity he gets. I’ve said it numerous times by now, but anytime he does something for Emma, he does it with utmost happiness.
Emma had just said that since she’s the savior, she cannot have happy things like a relationship, and Hook is showing her that she most certainly can and deserves to. He’s showing her that she can be both Emma Swan the woman, and Emma Swan the savior. Just as he’s both a man of honor and a pirate. He’s making sure she knows that he’ll cease these fleeting instances they’ll get to valorize his appreciation and adoration because she’s not alone nor will she ever be.
The savior has a savior — a partner, a friend, a person. Emma Swan may have moments where it all becomes too much to bear, but Killian Jones will be there to move the troubles away just as one would move a hair strand away. He’ll be there to make sure she feels like the irreplaceable treasure she is. It’ll be subtle moments like this, an embrace, a kiss on the forehead, etc, and it’ll reminder her that he will love, cherish, comfort, and protect her for the long haul.
Jelly Killy is adorable
Okay shipmates, let’s try this again. Reblog or like if you truly think Captain Swan will be endgame.
We got 184 notes last time, so let’s see if we can beat it.
Colin is so beautiful.
"He’s still a little spitfire."
Umm… Are you not going to discuss the fact that he’s interacting with her son, really and truly interacting with him for the first time, and it makes Emma SMILE?!
hook takes offense, dear sir
This was the funniest thing in the whole episode. I love how offended he is. ‘You dare talk about my leather! What about your own clothes, why don’t you look in a mirror!’,directed to a 13 year old boy.
“Not every guy is like my dad. He’s not just going to leave you.”
HENRY SPILLING SOME TRUTH TEA.
Can we talk about that fact that Neal left her even in the memory montage?
Nope but everyones like “you are sooo not getting the girl” vibes
This is basically what happened.
Killian gets his swagger back
So I’m guessing that when Killian went off, he somehow met or made a new crew and runs into Blackbeard while still in the EF. That would be the flashback in The Jolly Roger.
So as most people predicted, the flashbacks for this half of the season is going to be of everyone’s time in the EF and how they relate to the present.
Nowhere, unfortunately. Unless something has radically changed since 311 aired, there is no Canada livestream. However, the download links from the Canada airing will be out less than a minute after the show ends there. I cannot understand how someone could possibly have an Internet connection that fast, but ‘tis true!
EDIT: okay, people have shared this link on the chat. Give that a try.
