The perfect Captain Swan date to plan:
Killian: Shouldn’t I be the one asking you out? Curses and Neverland may have given me experience. But as you can see, I’ve retained my youthful glow. I happily accept on one condition, you let me plan the evening. You know how to chase a monster. I know how to plan an evening out.
Can we talk about how Killian is so worried that freaking out on Will may have done damage between them? And how she so quickly rubs her hands down his ams and into his hands and reassure him that it’s okay? Because this killed me.
This means she knows how hard he’s trying for her. She KNOWS who Killian is. She knows who he was, and she KNOWS how he’s changed. She expects there to be rough patches and times where Killian struggles more than others, but she’s okay with that. Because she knows where his heart is. It’s with her, and it’s with what’s best for her. She knows how damaged she was and how she is struggling with things herself. Why would she expect her pirate to be any different? This is new for both of them, and they are both trying to be the best they can be for one another.
Whether or not that hand was cursed or not, Killian’s heart is still in the same place. With Emma. For Emma. She knows that. He wanted the hand off because he THOUGHT it could ruin all the progress he’s made. Whether a mind game by Rumple or an actual curse, it scared him. His past scares him. He’s finally so close to everything he’s dreamed about for so long. He’s finally close to having someone again. A light in his life. A guide. Love. Someone who reassures him who he is. He can’t dare lose that.
But some scars are deeper than others, some take more time to heal. And when someone like the Dark One is trying so hard to make you break, it takes everything you have to try to stay the man you KNOW you are. And by going to Rumple in the first place, while it was a mistake, he’s now in a rough situation and has to do everything he can to get the best outcome from it possible. If he was the same man, he wouldn’t care. He would go after Belle. He wouldn’t care who got hurt in the process. All he would care about is taking down his crocodile. But that is simply not the case. He IS a changed man, and the most important thing in his life right now is Emma. If to him that means playing puppet to Rumple right now, that’s what he’s gonna do.
Yep, it’s gonna kill us all seeing Killian have to cancel plans with Emma, tell her he can’t come over tonight, tell her he can’t go to lunch, all because Rumple is calling the shots, but it won’t last forever, and it’s gonna make them grow stronger. You see how much she’s into him. She isn’t gonna just be like “Oh well I guess he’s just not that into me anymore, Oh well.” Nope, Adam said we will see Emma fight for him this season, and that my friends, is what we are about to see.
Remember all those times Killian reassured Emma again and again that she was powerful? That she was important and she meant something to so many people, including him? Well now look at this. Emma is reassuring him that he, too, need not worry so much. That he matters. That she cares about him and isn’t going anywhere.
First he is worried that his run in with Will may have scared her and ruined the evening. She emotionally and physically reassures him that it’s okay.
Then he gets the courage to ask Emma on a second date, but you see it all over his face that he’s worried about her answer. He puts himself in a vulnerable position here because he knows how he just behaved, maybe she will say no. But she assures him once again that she would love nothing more than to go out with him again, by moving in for a very passionate kiss.
And finally we are brought to the sheriff station, where Emma is clearly upset that Will interrupted her date, but turns to Killian and reminds him how wonderful of a time she had, despite the interruption.
Bottom line, Emma is in this. And she will reassure Killian that he is worthy of her and that she enjoys his company as much as she needs too. We saw it with Killian all last season and now we are seeing it with Emma and it’s really just such beautiful development. I cry.
