Yes Abby, they do!!! I’m so happy as well, he was my favorite… can you imagine him with Hook or Granny? The sass is going to be beyond imagination :P
OMG Hook vs Knave sass-off YES
And the guy can ACT too (shattered my heart in 1x11 when Jafar did the thing and all he could do was shout kasjhdkajshd)
Really hope he becomes a series regular. I CANNOT WAIT.
I feel like it was really important for Killian to watch over Belle in 3x15, because she’s the one major character he hadn’t yet made amends with.
It was also important that Emma asked him to do it, because it shows that she wanted Belle to know that she trusted him. In fact, I believe that Emma wanted him to make amends - otherwise, she could have chosen to ask David, whom Belle trusted, to stay behind.
Finally, it was important that Killian agreed to do it right away, because it shows again how much control he’s relinquishing to her - something that we know must be tough for a proud Captain to do. He trusts her judgement, even when it puts him in an uncomfortable situation. It shows he’s serious about turning a new leaf, and about helping Emma.
Although Killian had more motivation to watch over Neal, I feel that a lot of the above applies to their relationship as well. After all, it turned out to be Killian’s last chance to repair his relationship with Baelfire, and it’s just so important to note that their trust for each other ultimately led to that priceless opportunity.
