Usually when "Once Upon a Time" airs on Sunday nights, you just see #OnceUponaTime trending, but last night fans promoted a different cause: "Emma Deserves Better"

The March 27 episode, Season 5, Episode 15, "The Brothers Jones" focused on Killian/Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and his brother Liam. At one point, Hook told Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) he wasn't sure he deserved her, or saving, and Liam told Emma she was to blame for everything, and wasn't good enough for Hook.



Well, all of that -- and more -- pushed several fans to band together and share their frustrations at Emma's storyline. They miss when her story wasn't all about Hook/any relationship, or they want her to be in a better relationship than Captain Swan. For some fans, that relationship is Swan Queen, with Regina (Lana Parrilla), even though you could certainly argue that Regina has hurt Emma as often as Hook.

"Emma Deserves Better" was already trending before things got meta and Regina told Emma that she's too good for Hook. But some Hook fans also defended him, using the same theme.

Here are just a few of the fan reactions:



At least fans are still passionate about the show, and the characters, five seasons later. Twitter has become a rallying point for frustrated viewers, with #_____DeservesBetter now showing up pretty frequently, especially after Lexa's shocker on "The 100."

Do you agree that Emma deserves "better" on "Once"? If so, what would that look like to you?
