Bloody hell! I am starting this post a minute before day 17, but shhh nobody has to know. (I had a busy af day!) This scene is quiet unnoticeable; however, it carries so much meaning for Emma and Hook. As I stated in my post from last night, season 4 is all about chipping away Emma’s walls.
Season 4 Episode 5: ‘Breaking Glass’
THIS! Emma trusts Hook enough to look at what’s left of her childhood. As we all are well aware, Emma isn’t a very open person when it comes to her past. With Hook, she lets him into her world. He asks him for the honors of peeking into her past, and she lets him. She knows he will love her no matter what he sees. I think that’s why i love them together so much: because they trust each other so thoroughly. Also look at his doofy, little smirk. Aw.
Emma sits down with Hook to watch a video of her childhood. “Reflective today, aren’t we?” Hook asks. Emma tells him there are some things that happened today that made her think about her past. They sit down together and he pulls her against him into the cutest snuggle ever. CUTE AF!
And they continue to be the cutest couple ever until they realize the Snow Queen is in the video. Yeah, I was pretty shocked too. Despite the drama that ensued, I will always appreciate this scene because we see the trust they share. We see that Emma is willing to let Hook in. Thank you for this scene.
