That does kind of throw salt on the wound.
They present this show about strong women (even Snow was kickass at first!) and then one-by-one jerk everything away. So many SWEN kept hoping that there was some bigger purpose and kept giving A&E chances, but it’s hard to not imagine them laughing at our gullibility and desire to hope and believe for something better.
If they still manage to pull it off, I’ll be really fucking amazing. I almost wouldn’t be surprised if somehow in this Regina hunting down the book writer storyline that it ultimately makes all this heteronormative, misogynistic, sexist BS null and void. We’ll have several seasons of some of the worst writing I’ve ever been tortured with witnessing, and all for A&E to laugh at the end with “haha, just fucking with you! SQ is really endgame in the last 5 minutes of the last fucking episode and all of this other story was a big giant curse that Regina had to break by having the book rewritten.” Wouldn’t that be a kicker? Yet they still got to write the worst shit imaginable with the worse messages imaginable, fulfill all their “kick the tough women, POC, and queer people around” fantasies, only to act like they never meant it that way all along.
They’re arrogant enough to actually do something like that and I don’t put it past them. And unfortunately, there are people in the fandom who would forgive them of their treachery because “we got what we wanted in the end anyway!”
Fuck that, I’m not enduring 3, 4, 5 years of the “Mutual Masturbation Society” (aka Captain Swan movie) for that.
So, yeah, I’m bitter. I have a right to be. In a world where LGBTQ people are slowly but surely winning marriage rights yet also where my daughter has to endure other kids telling her that her parent’s marriage is gross, and where having a LGBTQ character on TV is practically a death sentence for that character, yeah, I’m a little bitter. Because it’s 2014 and not only should my daughter not have to hear that her parent’s love is gross, but she shouldn’t have to struggle to find strong female characters on TV that she can look up to. We can even find Wonder Woman action figures in the stores. What’s up with that?!
OUaT is seriously the biggest travesty on ABC. The writing has become complete crap, there is no character development (in fact most of them are devolving) they’ve gotten rid of all of the characters that were interesting and replaced them with ones that are ‘attractive’ and have horrible back…
So we’ve established that Hook really hasn’t changed.
And we’ve established that Rumple really hasn’t changed.
Jeez I wonder who has?
"all we need is your credit card information"
Me and my friends already went through this with Voldemort. This was my exact reaction.
I hate being told to do something I was already planning on doing
like I was all about doing this task, and then you told me to do it and now i am annoyed and this task is now 300x less likely to be completed
FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT.
Hahaha oh Hook this is going to end SO badly for you and i cannot WAIT. I will be laughing my ass off. Don’t say Rumple didn’t warn you.
I’m looking so forward to seeing what that hand DOES to him. It’s going to be SO AWESOME.
Also Rumple/Hook being smug little bastards and having a sass-off. YES PLEASE. I forgot how much I liked their scenes!
See, THIS is the Hook that I can enjoy watching. Great scene!
Yeah me too, but not the “I’m better than you because I changed” bullshit.
See the thing is that Hook BELIEVES that. He honestly does. He can’t see how Rumple has changed (and apparently totally discounts the fact that he killed himself to save them all). He can’t acknowledge that perhaps Rumple is in a bad place because he lost his son. So he honestly thinks that Rumple hasn’t changed at all, but that he HAS. Forgetting that he’s blackmailing someone. Doesn’t matter if he’s the Dark One. He’s still blackmailing him. Which I can’t quite see Emma being on board with. And I would bet 100% that he’s not going to say “Oh yeah I totally blackmailed Rumple to give it to me.” So now he’s got something he’s hiding from Emma. And Rumple has something he’s hiding from Belle. And the threats are just going to increase.
But really how has Hook changed? He’s still a bully and blackmail people. How has Hook changed?
Oh and I see all the bad things Hook will do now will be blamed on the cursed hand. Oh joy. More Hook whitewashing and he’s a changed man bullshit
I KNEW IT! I knew it, I knew it, i knew it!
I called this. The CSers came out said i was delusional. Because THEY.ARE.SHITTING.THEMESELVES. And so they should be lol, because Karma is finally going to come to this creep.
The only Hook scene I’m going to watch because this will be the beginning of the end of Captain Swan, and I’m going to witness with a Reginaesk grin on my face. Shots fired, this ship is finally going to go down.
