there’s a big difference between “i’m sad because a character i was emotionally invested in was killed off” and “this character’s death served no purpose, was used for shock value, and is the product of bad writing and i’m upset about that”


“And in the past with August back in that alley, there was a lot more to it than what we saw! Adam and Eddy and I had long discussions about what I would have said to August during that time, things like, “I’ll go to jail—let me go to jail for Emma!” But ultimately that’s a false economy, because although that would separate the two, she still wouldn’t accomplish her destiny because she didn’t know about magic. So they said, “You need to break her heart so she can later come around and realize that magic does exist. She can defeat the curse.” If I’d gone to prison, she probably would have just waited for Neal to get out. So there was a lot of jumping on the grenade there for the greater good. And then once he finds out he has a son, that’s really a pivotal point in his world—that’s what he’s been looking for. His family! He has a son now and he has an opportunity to be the kind of father he wishes he’d had. And so now this rudderless ship has a lot of purpose and direction, and that’s to be the best father he can possibly be. Everything he does is in the interest of Henry. After all he’s been through with Emma, I think Neal’s instinct is to move slowly and cautiously, which is in the best interest of his son. There are some complicated issues in his world, but he doesn’t want to let them jeopardize his relationship with his son.”
