Did I miss the formal custody hearing giving Emma the son back she gave away?
Nope, just another prime example of this show trying to say that only bio-parents matter.
This whole thing is unrealistic honestly. Two women being written primarily by men, don’t process, don’t talk, don’t make decisions together (even in a bickering way) just sort of hand the kid off like a football? Silly. As if Emma wouldn’t have at least said “hey, whose house is he staying at you know, given that he’s been staying at his grandparents’ den of debauchery/afternoon ‘resting’ sessions and we never did have a fucking discussion after I crawled out of that well about WHY Henry was with his grandfather and not you except for some kind of vague reference to you using magic again which what, is that like an opiate or an upper because for me, it’s more like pot, I get really paranoid and then I crave Doritos, anyway…so where is Henry staying tonite?”
Ok, maybe that’s a little wordy, but this whole approach is choppy, inconsistent (they JUST HAD A MOMENT PEOPLE LIKE TEN MINUTES AGO ON THAT SHIP WHEN HENRY CAME TO LIFE AGAIN!) and random and it could have been taken care of way back when Emma crawled out of that well with a look on her face that said “oh Regina thank you for saving us, let’s talk, I can’t wait to make out with your face and by face I mean all of you, naked, for hours, so let’s leave the kid at his grandparents, hopefully they won’t traumatize him and by the way how the hell ya been, where has Henry been staying, oh RLLY you threw a fireball at Granny to get him back, well that’s weird, hey maybe I can help you take care of him you know until you kick the whole magic thing. Just let me help, that’s all that I ask. I also have a chainsaw for that tree in case anybody tries to eat an apple from it.”
Again, a little wordy. But still. They need to talk more. Hire some more female writers. How about Katherine Fugate? lol
Nobody was waiting for you, nobody is going to give you a hug
