If you’re still into the show and don’t understand how or why it is leading us toward Captain Swan then I don’t know what to tell you. To be honest, the first HUGE, blatant clue was in “Tallahassee” when Emma leaves Hook in the giant’s lair. You can take it as romantic or non-romantic but the reason she leaves him up there is because he was getting under her skin. She knew he had the potential to be someone who she could one day care A LOT for. It is the reason she tries to leave Henry in the first season. Why she has tried to avoid getting close to anyone for half her life. She was afraid he would leave her and so she left him first.
If you are still asking why Hook is still being included in scenes when he has no connection to anybody, I invite you to re-watch episode 22 of the second season when Emma invites him to “be a part of something” or be alone. I won’t spoil the ending for you.
No one else in that bloody diner spoke up to negate Emma’s declaration. No one yelled out and told Hook to fuck off. By their silence, they were either silently agreeing or indifferent to the situation. Either way, Hook is part of the Nevengers and will be there until Emma (the arguably main character) tells him to sail away and never come back.
Emma drinks with Hook, asks him constantly his opinion about things, allows him to stand next to her, flirts with him, kisses him, teases him, is brutally honest with him, allows him to watch the MOST IMPORTANT PERSON TO HER (Henry), and is super eager to show her magic to him… I’m not sure if you are aware of basic human psychology but these gestures mean that Emma is very comfortable around Hook and trusts him with her life.
These are all preludes to a very functional romantic relationship and I am very glad that it is occurring with my OTP. I know that the slow build-up probably drives other shippers insane but I love it and relieves me because it is the only ship on this show who has had good build-up.
