Episode 90: Emma & Killian – Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time ships Captain SwanOnce Upon a Time has stopped for the winter hiatus, but we are diving into 2016 with podcasts throughout January and February, revisiting one of our most popular and requested topics of all time: the relationships on OUAT. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be talking about all of the show’s major “ships” and how the development of these characters and their relationships, both friendship and romantic, impact the overall series.

The first ship we’re sailing on is Captain Swan, the relationship between Captain Hook (Killian) and Emma. This duo featured prominently in season 5A and how their relationship moves forward will (in our opinion) impact the rest of the series. We share our favorite Captain Swan quotes, moments and episodes, and discuss the highs and lows, including both commendations and critiques, of the development of this relationship and how it fits into the series as a whole. Of course, we also share a few letters from fans of Captain Swan.

Pass the hiatus with us on Once Upon a Podcast! We’ll be back with another episode – and another ship – on January 19. In the meantime, be sure to keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook.
