We take this break from your regularly scheduled angst, to point out Daddy’s little routine, though I have no doubt he meant it –– was basically just for show?
That mamma and papa missed this moment in their little girl’s life, and now given this chance, he’s not gonna miss the opportunity to try to threaten the man that’s stolen her heart?
Even after their little talk, pre!cave in, them coming to an agreement, him KNOWING how much Killian loves her, seeing first hand how distraught he was at the thought of losing her…
Despite the fact that he DOES trust him, changed man that he his, MATES as they now are…he’s still gonna ruffle his feathers.
Because he has his daughter back, and he’s damn well gonna make up for lost time.
(But, you know, he doesn’t wanna be T O O hard on him…)
