Quite frankly, there’s no denying that Killian and Emma are each other’s person. Because they’re two people whose hearts beat to a similar rhythm, they’re able to challenge one another to be the best versions of themselves – the natural, magnetic-like force within allows them to honestly and effortlessly be content with their exact feelings when in the other’s presence. Emma’s often uncomfortable while using her magic, but she opened up beautifully this week and a lot of it is ultimately as a result of Killian’s unwavering support. Since Killian’s the one who devotedly encourages Emma to embrace all that make her special, opening up with her abilities excitingly comes easier to her when he’s around — she knows she can be herself because that’s the woman he’s fallen in love with. By ceaselessly and selflessly uplifting her, he’s helping her see the gifts she’s often looked passed and as a result, she’s not only finding immense comfort with him, but she’s discovering meaning in the little things while slowly removing her walls for a chance at happiness.
Okay, but when Emma sits at the table, the Charmings are already halfway through their argument over names. Which means poor Killian has been sitting there for god knows how long listening to the inlaws quarrel.
I honestly think he was looking at that apple as an escape route. Emma seriously saved his life.
