Okay so I watched seasons 1-5 like 4-5 times but season 6 only once (maybe twice) and I’m now watching it for the second time. In 06x02 A Bitter Draught Killian tells Belle that he laid a hand on her while he tried to kill her in 2x09 Queen of Hearts. Did he really assaulted her because her reaction is pretty much blank, which is suprising for a pregnant woman. I would’ve cried and screamed if it was me. So did he rape her or not? I know Regina raped graham which was very disturbing to me but idk belles reaction confuses me. Also, why the hell would he do that when he tried to kill her?
Update: just watched the scene, he hit her and then tried to kill her, BUT Regina immediately came in to stop him. So when did he assaulted her?
Hook has done a lot of bad things, but he never raped or attempted to rape Belle, he attacked and may have tried to kill her but there was no sexual assault involved in their interactions, laid a hand means that he actually touched her, not that he tried to rape her.
