this moment right here is so gorgeous and so important, Emma has to focus on a true love couple being reunited together, and what she sees - and the image that makes her eyes to flutter - is her and Killian together, she sees them together and this is how she finds a way to spark her magic.
Magic is emotion, and here, it’s hope, it’s love, that had Emma doing this.
She used the hope and love of a true love couple to find another one. Her reflection with Killian at her side is what made her make magic
-“So? Everyone wants stuff, we wake up every day with a list of wishes a mile long and maybe we spend our lives trying to make those wishes come true, but just because we want them doesn’t mean we need them to be happy.”
-“What do you need to be happy?”
Everything we do is a choice. Oatmeal or cereal. Highway or side streets. Kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way we ask for forgiveness. It’s the best anyone can do.
