on a scale of 1 to ‘he traded his fucking ship for her’ how otp-y is your otp
right up there with ‘he gave her an entire library TWICE’
judging by what JMo said in the interviews, there are big, good reasons Emma pushes away and we’ll see them; but when she talked about it to me it felt like she was saying “it’s gonna be tough but Emma will overcome it”.
I have no doubt she’ll eventually overcome what’s holding her back, and, like I said, despite her having good reasons I still think it’s unfair for her to sort of hide behind that or let it justify pushing people away. She had a major epiphany in the season finale and I really hope that we actually see her new attitude put into practice. I’m just a little weary of possibly getting this arc-long thing where Emma only starts opening up til the end of 4A because that’s kinda beating a dead horse imo. But we’ll see!
