TVLINE | Some thought the Emma/Hook Once-CaptainSwan_Kissreunion felt a bit rushed, especially for someone carrying such a fear about losing the men she loves. Was that a time issue? That you had other story masters to serve?
KITSIS | We would have loved to do 40 minutes of them kissing, but we had a lot to get in.
HOROWITZ | We felt like it was a sweet moment between the two of them, her returning his heart and then the kiss. Could there have been a lot more? Yeah. But there’s still plenty of episodes left in the season.
KITSIS | We thought the kiss and the way she put his heart back said [a lot]…. But the truth is they’re a couple that is continuing, so we’d rather watch them grow together and see what happens.

During Sunday’s winter finale, Anna (Elizabeth Lail), Elsa (Georgina Haig) and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) finally went back to Arendelle, but not before Anna tipped the heroes off to Rumple’s (Robert Carlyle) more nefarious ways. Fortunately, Belle (Emily de Ravin) was able to prevent her hubby from killing Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and sent Rumple across the town line—which means he can’t return due to the Snow Queen’s spell.

What can you tease about the next chapter for Hook and Emma?
HOROWITZ: I think Emma is understanding that Rumple had his heart. The next chapter for the two of them will be about where does their relationship go from here? And how do the new personal obstacles that we’ll see unfold for them in the second half of the season either aid or abet that relationship?

Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) was under Rumple’s control for the last few episodes, and was forced to tell some lies. Will there be fallout from that, or does everyone understand he had no say in the matter?
Kitsis: I think he kind of has a pass on that. He’s tried really hard to do the right thing, and we’re excited: we’re going to get more into his backstory in the second half. And what’s fun is he and Emma are [now] a couple, so we’re going to watch them grow.

Emma (Jennifer Morrison) lost the closest thing she had to a sister when Elsa (Georgina Haig) left with Anna (Elizabeth Lail) to return to Arendelle in “Once Upon a Time’s” Season 4 fall finale, but don’t worry, because Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) is around to fill that void in her life.

“She probably feels a little bit of a loss only because Elsa and Emma did get close, but then she also has a boyfriend to kind of take a little bit of that away,” O’Donoghue tells Zap2it during an interview in Vancouver, where “Once” films.

Don’t expect the series to linger on any loss Emma is feeling — especially she already has solidified her girlmance with Regina (Lana Parrilla) now that they’re drinking buddies. As O’Donoghue notes, this is Storybrooke we’re dealing with, meaning “it’s not too long before something else happens” to distract everyone. At least Hook and Emma’s relationship is a “very real thing for both of them,” and both characters are trying to make things work.

“I think what it is is the connection that Hook and Emma have. Nobody’s really had the same thing because both have experienced similar things in their past and sort of been abandoned as kids,” he says. “Both of them are thieves. Emma’s done the wrong thing at the wrong time as well for whatever reasons she’s felt were necessary. They kind of see that in each other.”

“Once Upon a Time,” with all its talk of fairy tales and happily ever afters, definitely believes in the concept of soulmates. Emma has had a number of different love interests throughout the series, but is Hook her OTP (one true pairing) — or OTL (one true love), in this case?

“At the moment I would say soulmates is a big one, but they love each other,” O’Donoghue carefully answers. “They’re in the process of realizing that love or whatever. It’s all that kind of fresh, exciting thing that happens in a new relationship — only unfortunately they live in Storybooke where every single day they have to fight snow monsters.”

He notes of their seasons-long courtship, “There’s always an interruption.”

If there weren’t constant distractions for the pair, O’Donoghue believes Hook would be a great emotional support system for Emma. “They’ve definitely had deep and meaningful conversations in past episodes. They could probably trade makeup secrets and stuff,” he says.

Going forward into the second half of Season 4, which premieres March 1, O’Donoghue is looking forward to seeing Emma and Hook’s relationship mature. He says, “I’m interested to see how Hook and Emma will develop, what sort of bumps there will be and what kind of problems they might encounter or how they will deal with that and get over it.”

As for Hook’s other true love, his ship the Jolly Roger, O’Donoghue says “we might” see it again soon.

“I do miss it, and I’d be very happy to see it back,” he says. “[Hook] definitely misses his ship — it’s his ship, you know what I mean?”
