i find it funny how most of neal/regina haters love hook. like “blah blah lah neal was selfish and left emma go to jail blah blah blah” oh sure cause hook was never selfish nah. “hook loves emma so much she would never do anything wrong to her but ughhh neal is the devil blah blah" sure like…
Ok ignoring the CS negativity here for a moment, I just gotta say that while I agree with you wholeheartedly about your #2 (and I love Regina btw so don’t for a second assume otherwise), you’re wrong about Regina not having raped Graham.
Rape doesn’t have to involve violence or force - rape is essentially sex without the informed consent of all members involved. Regina had Graham’s heart and was using it to control him - he slept with her because she wanted him to, she used her control over him to make it happen. Yes she never physically forced herself on him but she had complete control over him.
I love Regina completely but does not mean I am able to overlook her wrongdoings - you can love a character and still recognise when they screw up.
