But from his? It's all about Emma the Savior and the breaking of the curse. Yes, he knows that's his mother (obviously) but he hasn't acted like it. Ya know?
There was that one time, in "The Price of Gold" when he said he just wanted to spend the day with her. Other than that, I agree there's not a lot. I wonder if that's partially because Henry doesn't want to scare her off.
I have admit, I don't see Emma being (much) upset with her parents for sending her through the portal. More than intellectually knowing they were trying to give her her best chance, I think the she emotionally understands it to a degree, because she gave up Henry for the same reasons. She can identify with the parent's position. She will be angry at what her life could have been with them, but not that angry with them, maybe. Especially since she knows that her fate would have been either to be cursed an infant for eternity or killed (would Regina killing her before
the curse struck stop it?). The responsibility heaped on her savior was, of course, very unfair, but it wasn't her parents that assigned that responsibility to her. Anger could be directed at Regina, Rumpelstiltskin, even Geppetto.
I expect troublesome issues between Emma and her parents. Snow presuming more closeness than Emma is willing to have seems likely enough. It depends on how her time as Mary Margaret feels to her. I can see Emma either running scared from a relationship with her parents, or trying to act like everything is okay, but holding back anything she thinks they'll judge her for, or putting up walls and acting like everything is status quo, or feeling inadequate - there are a lot of possibilities. If they push for more than she's ready to give, that could make her angry. Of course, if they don't push, she might end up never having a relationship with them - she needs prodding sometimes.
What I really hope is addressed is that Snow is not Mary Margaret. More than just the relationship between them changing, a person has changed. That's got to be weird for Emma. The same could be said of the difference between David and Charming, but he and Emma don't have the same relationship, so that seems less an issue. Though now they have the issue of him feeling a closeness to her that she might not feel.
Do we think that Snow and Charming will ever find out the true story? I kind of assumed they wouldn't. I suppose in part it rests on Pinocchio's fate....
Well, they have to find out the broadstrokes, because August is there in town and is Pinocchio, and they have to learn that. Even if he stayed wooden, they'd know he was Pinocchio. At the very least, because Emma or Henry would tell Geppetto about him. Or Granny would find his body whens he went to clean the rooms.
I don't imagine it will get a lot
of attention devoted to it, though. Snow and Charming will undoubtedly be upset for what their daughter had to go through because of it, but, as parents, they can understand where Geppetto was coming from. And they can't blame a seven year old. And the Blue Fairy was operating under the terms and conditions Geppetto set, and planned at least to have Snow with Emma.
