"Josh Dallas did an excellent job playing Charming’s reactions to Hook’s departure. These two characters are mirror images of the other—driven by love, lost without the women who make them their best selves. And I think Charming has understood that since Neverland. His expression as Hook left to find his ship (and passage back to Emma?) was one of understanding, one of hope."
Anonymous asked: What do you think was the reason Emma called hook a ghost instead of a person that she may have feelings for to Walsh? Some thought that was her friend zoning hook.
Calling Hook a ghost was not friend zoning him, I despise those words and I hope no one ever says them to me again cause it’s a load of bullshit. Anyways, the entire thing was BEAUTIFUL really. Because Walsh asks if this person who turned up in her life is “Henry’s father? An ex?”
But he’s something entirely different for Emma. He’s not someone who hurt her. He’s not someone who’s broken her. He’s not Henry’s father because that man did a world of damage to who Emma Swan is.
He’s a ghost. He’s this person who’s haunted her, lingered with her. Someone who’s there beside her, even if she’s not fully realized that he has been. To me I got an underlying current of an idea that he’s haunted her past year, even though she didn’t know who he is. Something niggling in the back of her head.
Calling him a ghost was beautiful and breathtaking. It was a perfect choice of words for him.
