Why This Must Be Read: Kidnapped then abandoned as a child, Emma falls in with the King of the Street Rats in a scene that pays homage to Aladdin, and it all goes well until it gets worse and then better again. OUAT plays on themes of lost children, and this really brings that out while also showcasing the push-pull dynamic between Killian and Emma, and how dense these characters can sometimes be (Would it kill you guys to communicate?!).
