In the olden days, you weren’t allowed to build any higher than the church in a village, town, or city. Legally, the church was to be the highest building, and everything else had to be an inch below. You know what the religion of a city is by the tallest building. So, what’s the religion of New York City? It’s a dollar bill. Trade. That’s God. Money is God. And that’s a shame.
These particular moments/interactions between Killian and Emma really stood out to me for some reason. At the beginning of the episode, Emma opens the door and just admires Hook in his new clothes, noticing nothing about his hand. He then literally gives her a rose with his left hand (where is hook should be)… and she still notices nothing out of the ordinary. She accepts the rose happily and continues to talk to him. It’s not until Snow interrupts and says "…Emma…" when Emma finally realizes that Killian’s hook is gone, and that he has his hand back. Even so, she just shrugs it off like it’s no big deal and jokes, “So what do I call you now, Captain Hand?”
Then at the end of the episode, Killian walks into the police station holding his hook and adjusting it, because it’s all he can focus on. It’s all he’s been worrying about the entire episode. But Emma turns around to talk to him, and once again, notices nothing different. She then walks towards him, flirting a little bit. Then finally after that, she realizes his hook is back and she asks "what the hell happened to your hand?". Right after Hook explains the situation, she has no reaction or response. She walks away nonchalantly, un-phased and unaffected, with no care in the world.
My point is that Emma doesn’t even care or pay attention to the fact that Killian has a hook or a stump or an actual hand; whereas it’s all Killian can think about. He’s so preoccupied with getting his hand back. He struggles with the fact that he doesn’t have two hands to hold her with, and we found out in this episode that it’s actually something he’s really insecure and self-conscious about. He’s so concerned about his lack of a hand that he doesn’t even realize how unaffected and un-phased Emma is by it.
She loves him exactly how he is, regardless of a hand or a hook. That stuff is petty and unimportant to her. She just wants him. And I just love that so much.

What with the Mercutio/Romeo kiss from the other day I feel like I should have a tag specifically for “men kissing in Shakespeare plays even though it’s not in the text, but after 400 years of unresolved sexual tension it’s time.”

mythology alphabet: s - sisyphus [Σίσυφος]
Sinner condemned in Tartarus to an eternity of rolling a boulder uphill then watching it roll back down again. Sisyphus was founder and king of Corinth, or Ephyra as it was called in those days. He was notorious as the most cunning knave on earth. His greatest triumph came at the end of his life, when the god Hades came to claim him personally for the kingdom of the dead. Hades had brought along a pair of handcuffs, a comparative novelty, and Sisyphus expressed such an interest that Hades was persuaded to demonstrate their use - on himself. And so it came about that the high lord of the Underworld was kept locked up in a closet at Sisyphus’s house for many a day, a circumstance which put the great chain of being seriously out of whack. Nobody could die. A soldier might be chopped to bits in battle and still show up at camp for dinner. Finally Hades was released and Sisyphus was ordered summarily to report to the Underworld for his eternal assignment.
