I feel like they owe us an apology for many things.
No but they do need to speak up and admit that even if that wasn’t their intention, Graham and Regina’s storyline almost certainly implied rape and nothing ever came from that. Sure we saw her as the bad guy but we never saw Emma realize “oh crap the kid was right about her crushing his heart.”
I honestly am not sure. I’m not really interested in the writers/creators or what they have to say, so I don’t follow them on Twitter or keep up with their interviews (just if I see things on Tumblr).
Anyone else got an answer?
