In Emma and Hook, we’re given romantic leads who aren’t wide-eyed kids or adults who’ve never really loved before. Instead, we’re given a man who was driven to darkness and self-loathing because he lost his first love and a woman who was unable to believe anyone could love her after her first love left. We were shown all of that—not just told about it in passing. And by seeing just how damaged losing their first loves made Emma and Hook, we’re able to better appreciate just how monumental it is for them to decide to open their heart to the possibility of loving and being loved again.
