Hope you like it (:
Two things to note about this scene:
1. The candle burning between Hook and Emma is dual sided. Why is this important? Because of the concept of “Twin Flames,” which is used to describe a special type of “soul connection” between two individuals. Anyway, from what I remember about this, it can also have implications of a love that is both as ancient as time as it is eternal (GOD, that’s poetic and beautiful, isn’t it?). This deeply reminds me of Snowing and not just how they always find each other, but how Charming knew something was wrong with Snow when she had eaten the apple — their love and their connection was just that powerful that he knew she was in trouble. Additionally, all of this is extremely interesting because in this episode, Snow told Regina that she feels with her whole soul, not just her heart, and then Regina dropped her walls and kissed Robin and as a sidenote: according to writer Jane Espenson, Robin feels that same connection to Regina. I mean, I’m not saying soul mates, but I’m totally saying Hook and Emma are soul mates ;))
2. The colors of the candle and where it’s facing. Hook gets the black side and Emma gets the white — Hook’s dark to Emma’s light. There’s so much symbolism here, it’s crazy. I also think it represents what’s happening in their lives: Hook is sort of retreating into himself and his darkness and keeping Emma at arm’s length because he’s afraid of hurting her, while Emma is finally embracing all of that light and magic in her and ready to let him in. It’s so beautiful because light always beats the darkness, that’s the trope, and if Emma allows Hook into her heart, if Hook allows himself to trust Emma and let her bring him into her light, they’re going to win and they’re going to beat Zelena and they’re going to have all this love that’s so powerful and stunning and I have a lot of feelings about this okay. T_T
I don’t yearn.
