Remember all those times Killian reassured Emma again and again that she was powerful? That she was important and she meant something to so many people, including him? Well now look at this. Emma is reassuring him that he, too, need not worry so much. That he matters. That she cares about him and isn’t going anywhere.
First he is worried that his run in with Will may have scared her and ruined the evening. She emotionally and physically reassures him that it’s okay.
Then he gets the courage to ask Emma on a second date, but you see it all over his face that he’s worried about her answer. He puts himself in a vulnerable position here because he knows how he just behaved, maybe she will say no. But she assures him once again that she would love nothing more than to go out with him again, by moving in for a very passionate kiss.
And finally we are brought to the sheriff station, where Emma is clearly upset that Will interrupted her date, but turns to Killian and reminds him how wonderful of a time she had, despite the interruption.
Bottom line, Emma is in this. And she will reassure Killian that he is worthy of her and that she enjoys his company as much as she needs too. We saw it with Killian all last season and now we are seeing it with Emma and it’s really just such beautiful development. I cry.
