Here’s the question that still plagues me:

WHAT THE WHAT WAS THAT PULSE OF ENERGY WHEN EMMA GAVE HOOK CPR?

It looked ridiculously similar to the True Love’s Kiss pulse. 

But given that she still lost her magic, meaning the curse was not broken, it couldn’t have been a full TLK. 

But it also apparently isn’t something that ’ just happens’ when magic is removed, because we didn’t see a pulse when Regina stripped Zelena of her powers. 

I wonder this:

I honestly don’t think Emma was in love with Killian «yet» here. She was barely acknowledging ANY of her feelings for him, especially in this regressionfest of an episode. And I firmly believe that for a kiss to be a TLK, both parties’ hearts have to be all in. Because that is what creates the magic, the deep and powerful love they share for one another

HOWEVER.

He IS in love with her here. He’s all in. And there is another factor this show dances nimbly around (but overtly hints at): fate. And there have been so many Easter eggs that Killian was meant for Emma from the very beginning. 

So if they are meant, and his heart is hers, could this have been some sort of halfsie? Not full power, but still an indicator of what’s to come? That there is magic happening between them, it’s just not at its full strength yet because Emma’s heart isn’t there yet. 

I just find it so strange that they would add something as deliberate and noticeable to this scene if it was meaningless. Or if it was just an effect of her losing her power, again, why didn’t the same thing happen with Zelena?

Emma’s scene was even set up like a total TLK moment: someone she cared about was cursed, danger ensued, she saved him with her mouth. (Tough racket, that. Putting your mouth on that man’s mouth.) But again, it wasn’t a true TLK as a) it was CPR not a kiss and b) her heart not being all in yet.

Yet they still set it up like that. And there was still an energy pulse, just like when a TLK happens.

SO WHAT WAS IT.
