A - Alternate Reality. Their scenes in the Heroes & Villains alternate reality in Operation Mongoose Part 2.

B - Beanstalk. The location of their first major interaction and bonding, with Killian reading Emma like an open book, their teamwork and the hand bandaging scene.

C - Curses. All the curses they faced together which affected their story. Pan's curse forcing Emma to leave Storybrooke in Going Home, Zelena cursing Killian's lips, their tearful goodbye kiss before the Shattered Sight curse and Emma cradling Killian's unconscious body as his dark curse hits.

D - Dancing. Emma and Killian...

Do you know how Emma and Hook’s relationship will evolve ?

I think that Hook is sincerely attracted to Emma. She has a big personality and an iron will which can only seduce him. They feel a sort of mutual respect because they are alike in many aspects. Not sure that their relations will become romantic however, because for now, Emma has mostly the habit of tying me down to what she can find to prevent me from following her. I spent a big part of my time on the show tied down by the way. Personally, I don’t see any problem in that. Anyway, Hook is pretty good at getting himself out of any...

I saw this question so often around the forum and club in general, I wanted to give my answer. I’ve been firmly Captain Swan since the bean-stalk, so keep that in mind while I point out all of Hook’s shortcomings.

I believe there are many reason to this dislike of Hook.
When Mary Margaret and Emma first met Hook, he was working with a woman who had just murdered an entire village, lied to their faces and was planning to double cross them. Snow knew him by reputation as a ruthless pirate captain, and repeatedly told her daughter not to trust him. He later ripped the heart out of Aurora to...

"Neal genuinely loved Tamara and moved on with her." - Eddy Kitsis

"When you truly love someone, you can never move on." - Knave of Hearts

So, CANON speaking because even Eddy confirmed it so you can stop saying Neal never loved her, Neal did love Tamara and moved on with her. He chose her, built a life with her, and wanted a future with her even though he knew that Emma was out there. He knew all the shit he put her though and he still chose to ignore it- never even coming back for her when the curse was broken. So that line from OUATIW (which is always written by Adam and Eddy, so I assume...

Captain Swan is the couple I've seen criticised the most from all the ones I ship. I've decided to write an article defending them against some of the most common arguments.

Captain Swan has no chemistry

This might be the argument I understand the least. I've seen other couples I ship accused of lacking chemistry, but those are a very different type of couple - either couples who were together from the start of the series, so they've passed the stage of obvious sexual tension and chemistry, or couples whose appeal is more emotional than physical attraction. With those types of couples, you can...

1. As the main character, and as a character who has lived in our world rather than in the fairy-tale world, I think that Emma needs a more complicated love story than most, which Captain Swan provides.
2. Both Emma and Killian know what it's like to be abandoned and to grow up as orphans.
3. They both have turned to crime in their pasts.
4. Both have experienced a love interest die in their arms as a result of having a heart crushed.
6. Both have also had their own hearts metaphorically broken by a past love.
7. All of the parallels with Snowing, Emma's parents and THE true love couple of the series....

"I was hoping it'd be you."
"Don't think I'm taking my eyes off you for a second." "I would despair if you did."
"You know, most men would take your silence as off-putting, but I love a challenge."
"You're something of an open book."
Killian recognising Emma's lost look.
"Love's been all too rare in your life, hasn't it? Have you ever even been in love?"
Killian bandaging Emma's hand with his scarf and tying it with his teeth.
"I'm always a gentleman."
Emma noticing Killian's Milah tattoo and realising that he lost more than his hand to Rumplestilskin.
"For someone who's never been in love,...

“I like to be surprised when I watch television, and nothing on television right now is surprising me more than Captain Hook’s sincere feelings for Emma. Their initial flirtation in this episode was very cute (the bit about perms was hilarious), and I liked that Emma actually seemed to be bantering with him and flirting with him rather than just rolling her eyes. The girl needs something to make her smile, and I think Hook could be exactly that.All of that initial flirting culminated in the scene where Hook once again offers Emma rum to heal her wounds. I’m continually impressed with...

On Thursday, Josh Dallas, Colin O’Donoghue, Sonequa Martin-Green and Ethan Embry filmed a scene together. They were in a place that we could not see what they were filming but we could hear a bit and it sounded like they were filming a fighting scene. After a few hours of being there, Colin came out to take pictures. A fan in front of me in the line was giving me her camera and she had her dog that was named Emma with her and Colin said “Here, let me hold her. I know how to handle Emma’s”


Colin just keeps on killing us. Sometimes it's with his magical eyebrow sometimes it's with these little CS comments :)

I saw this on Tumblr and thought it was really interesting:

Edward Kitsis: (Talking about Charming) "And if he would have taken the easy way out, and just pretended to be King George's son, would have lived an easier life, but he fell in love and he gave all of that up for Snow White."

Killian/Hook in 2x04: "A man unwilling to fight for what he wants deserves what he gets."

Neal in 3x01: "I was afraid she would never forgive me, so I wound up taking the easy way out, just not trying."

To me, the above quotes perfectly sum up why Emma and Neal should not be together. I've heard many an argument...

Guys, I noticed that a lot of OUAT fans hate even the idea of Emma being with Hook, and that annoys me, A LOT! I am crazy about this ship and I really don't understand why don't they like it!
I saw somewhere a comment like:People don't like Emma and Hook because he's evil, and yet Regina or/and Gold is/are their favorite character(s). And I totally agree with it!
Maybe that's the point..Emma can change him, make him better, and he can do the same for her!
We all saw how hurt Hook was when she left him on that beanstalk. That showed me that he is still capable of having strong feelings about a girl. He haven't showed them in a long while, not after Millah died, but he did it for her. That tells us something, right?
I will never stop shipping them and I will go down with this ship!<3
Is there any news about Once Upon a Time‘s Hook and Emma? I’m so hoping they hook up cause they make a good pair. –Jennifer

For starters, the wordplay whore in me will forgive and even applaud your use of “hook up” in this context. Secondly, I will tell you that I have a full-blown Q&A with Colin O’Donoghue posting closer to the show’s Jan. 6 return that will address this and other hot topics. (Something to keep in mind: Will Charming let this scoundrel anywhere near his daughter?) And lastly, here’s a random other scooplet: Sources confirm that the “Tiny” Episode 13...

This is from Nerdy Girl Notes review of 3x06 link and is NOT mine!

I was shocked when Hook became the first one to tell his secret. He had nothing to gain by telling his secret at all, let alone going first. But he knew that in order for Emma to get to Neal - to the man Hook thinks is her happiness - he had to prove that this was how the cave worked, so he did the honorable thing - and he did it for her happiness. Colin O' Donoghue was excellent once again in this episode, especially in the smallest details, such as the way he seemed to steel himself before sharing his secret, knowing he's about...

In 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower', Charlie witnesses an upsetting incident between his older sister and her boyfriend, and is troubled when she stays with him. Charlie asks his English teacher "Why do nice people choose the wrong people to date?" His teacher tells him: "We accept the love we think we deserve."
"Can we make them know they deserve more?" Charlie asks. "We can try," the teacher replies.
I was thinking about this quote in the context of Swanfire and CS and certain things Emma said about Neal which I think probably confused CS shippers and made Swanfire fans feel justified in...

This is my trying to briefly outline the reasons I like Captain Swan so much as well as the reasons I could never get behind any of the other popular ships with these characters. Be warned though, this maybe updated an edited later on as I remember ships and reasons I want to talk about. Also, anyone who has read my other articles on the Once Upon a Time fan page will probably notice a lot of overlap.

First up: Captain Swan. Both Emma and Hook are the type of personalities the other needs. Emma needs someone who will worship her. She needs someone who she knows she can trust with her feelings...

Okay! So two things..

When Hook was saying bye to Emma, did he really say "That's quite a vessel you got there, Captain Swan."? Because I swear that's what I heard. And it may just be a coincidence, but he said CAPTAINSWAN. Could it be a sign?

But second...and most importantly...WHAT DOES HOOK KISSING EMMA IN NEW YORK AND NOT BREAKING THE CURSE OVER HER MEMORIES MEAN?! (And just in case you haven't figured it out yourself, this is definitely why I'm freaking out). Because they've always made it seem like true love's kiss can break any curse or something along those lines....

I was on Eonline's spoiler chat page, and even though the spoilers were about various different shows, the only things people were posting comments on were Captain Swan. The nice comments were very very nice, but the bad comments were, well...they all looked as if they had been written by the same person. (They hadn't). Believe me, I do try to stay away from stuff like that, but there are times when you can't avoid it. What was strange though, was that they were all arguments (if you can call them that), I had heard before.

1. "Captain Swan are 'forced' " (Also, "Captain Swan is 'rushed' ")....
