It’s time for a Once Upon a Time singalong! For the first – and maybe only – time ever on the podcast, we play music critic and chat about each and every one of those sweet, funny, and even quite surprising musical numbers that the OUAT cast performed on this week’s penultimate episode of season 6. We also discuss how the unusual format added to the excitement of Emma Swan and Captain Hook’s wedding. Plus, we talk about some very significant casting news and theorize about how this season (or even the series) will wrap up next weekend on the Once Upon a Time season 6 finale.
Whoa, who saw that coming?! This week, Once Upon a Time finally revisited a part of Prince Charming’s backstory, the story of his father, which ended with an unexpected twist. Let’s talk about how Josh Dallas rocked this week’s episode and had a (well-deserved) breakdown. Hook was there to valiantly save the day and their bromance was strong until… well, it wasn’t. This week also prompted even more theorizing about the romance (or lack thereof) between Regina and Robin Hood. This show is setting up plenty of mysteries, and for better or for worse, we’re here to try to decode all of them. Plus, we talk about some news that might give hints about what OUAT has up its sleeves beyond this season.
This week, Once Upon a Time dove 10,000 leagues under the sea and into a part of Hook’s backstory that we haven’t seen. We revisit Liam 2.0 (remember Hook’s younger half-brother?) and meet his adoptive father, but the reunion is not smooth sailing between the brothers. How are you feeling about how this season is shaping up? Do you think that Once Upon a Time is still offering up new and exciting adventures, or has it recycled a few too many themes? We’re debating that question this week, so feel free to weigh in!
Once Upon a Time got a little fishy and Rumplestiltskin got a little nosy in “Poor Unfortunate Soul.” From a tense interrogation scene between the Queens of Darkness (and the Dark One) in the “cabin of debauchery” with old August to Hook’s bad boy backstory to Ursula’s sweet tale that blended myth and Disney, listen to us voice our thoughts about this action-packed episode.

It wasn’t a exactly jolly good time for everyone in this episode: Captain Hook gets angsty, the tables are turned (and then twisted) in the developing relationship between Emma and Hook and we see Ariel again… sort of. Plus, it’s just another ordinary day for the Charming/Mills family: gramps teaching Henry to drive, Emma and David putting together a crib and Regina and Emma making magic (not tapas).

According to a quote Eddy Kitsis gave to TV Line, things may not be so competitive after all.
The guys will come to some sort of agreement during the Dec. 8 episode of Once Upon a Time, which is titled “The New Neverland.” Kitsis said of the love rivals who once shared a father-son-style bond, “You’ll see how they’re going to deal with each other and with Emma in, I think, a surprising way.” Maybe Hook confesses his love for the floor, and Emma sticks with what she said when it comes to not being able to be with Neal?
The Examiner recently sat down with Hook himself, and asked actor Colin O’Donoghue what we might be able to expect from Killian Jones.
O’Donoghue shared that he has never approached playing Hook as an “out and out villain,” it has been his selfishness that defined him when we first met him, and now that is shifting.
“Selfishness made him do villainous things at times. And a lot of it could be hearsay– a lot of the stories about Hook that people sort of– I don’t know yet, but the way I saw it was that, similar to The Princess Bride…there’s this sort of myth behind him but nobody ever saw it happen,” O’Donoghue said.
“I do think he’d happily kill you if he had to, but he might have a little bit of a cry about it after.”
Once Upon A Time will give further insight into Hook’s story this third season with a flashback episode that will show a side of Killian Jones that O’Donoghue thought would “surprise people.” In it we will see a younger version of him that may not be expected– but will it inform why he relates as much as he does to Emma?
