Once Upon a Time fans who can't get enough of Colin O'Donoghue's hot Captain Hook definitely have something big to look forward to tonight when season 3, episode 5 airs on ABC.
Fans already know that Emma Swan is going to share a kiss with Captain Hook, and Emma's dying dad isn't very happy about the pirate lusting after his daughter. But will Emma react like a rebellious teen when Charming forbids her from being with Hook? Spoilers lie ahead, so beware.
Sadly, Colin O'Donoghue seemed to indicate that an Emma-Hook hookup is going to have to wait. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he pointed out that Emma is way too worried about finding Henry right now, so it sounds like the kiss probably isn't going to immediately lead to a full-blown love fest. "So it's about whether anything can grow from that and within the confines of this quest," Colin said. "So I don't know." Maybe Hook will play an integral part in saving Charming or Henry—an act of heroism would definitely get Emma's attention. However, Henry definitely wouldn't be happy about his mom falling for the pirate since he's obviously going to try to get his parents back together.
Speaking of Neal, Jennifer Morrison was asked if Emma's former love will find out about the kiss on a future episode of OUAT. "There is a point at which Emma's truth about both Neal and Hook have to be made public," she said. Morrison also teased that audiences will never guess how the truth comes out. Hopefully Henry doesn't walk in on his mom while she's hooking up with Hook.
Jennifer Morrison said that she has "no complaints" about kissing Colin O'Donoghue, pointing out that she's also had the opportunity to make out with Michael Raymond-James and Jamie Dornan on Once Upon a Time. So she'll always be able to brag about kissing Christian Grey. It's just a shame that Jamie Dornan's character was killed off before he was cast in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie—the viewership of OUAT probably would have increased dramatically if the huntsman was still around to be one of Emma's suitors.
Season 3, episode 5 will also feature a lot of Hook's back story, including how and why he came to Neverland. Apparently he was a Navy officer searching for a plant with healing properties, which would be helpful right now since Charming is very slowly dying from dreamshade poisoning. Hopefully the show will also check in on Mulan and Robin Hood, who was recently revealed to be Regina's second soul mate. Poor Mulan definitely needs to be given a new love interest in the near future, and it would be great if another LGBT character was introduced to the show. Perhaps Tinkerbell is into girls.
So what would you like to see tonight besides more Hook? You can check out a video of the Hook-Emma kiss below. Is the "As you wish" line a reference to The Princess Bride?
