Do you guys realize how important for CS this scene was? It clearly established (once again) that Hook is part of the Charmings family.
I mean… His presence is completely unnecessary to the scene. Philip and Aurora? They need to be there because they were the ones in EF. Regina, Charming and Snow? The EF is their kingdom, so no explanation needed here. BUT HOOK? There was no reason for him to be there.Apart from a sassy comment to the Queen, he brings nothing to the scene. Yet, they put him in the group and showed his reactions on camera.
This is soooo important. This kind of details is used to show the audience that Killian is part of the main story and that he’s part of this family. They want the public to get used to him siding with the heroes, without having to ask question about why he’s there. They want us to get used to his presence so when TLK happen, there won’t be any reason to invalidate it.
Yep. There’s no point denying it. Killian is one of the good guys, he’s a hero, no matter what he (or the others) says. After all… Actions speak louder than words, right?
