On the Set: Everything you need to know about Once Upon a Time's 100th episode

March 4, 2016   |   Written by Entertainment Weekly

For the time being, Emma and the gang are solely focused on finding Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), who sacrificed himself in the fall finale to rid the world of the Darkness only to have Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) once again become the Dark One. “There’s a deep resentment, obviously, because [Gold] took away what Hook’s sacrifice was meant to mean,” Morrison says. “It’s doubled her fury toward him, in a sense that he’s now betrayed them all, betrayed Killian. It’s the ultimate betrayal of this family, basically. There is a deep, deep fury there.” Still, “She needs to get to Hook,” Morrison adds. “She understands the power of the Dark One. She’s going to use him to get what she wants, because she knows how to use that power now.”

Having used that power herself as the Dark Swan will certainly affect Emma moving forward. “I do believe that she’s changed having been the Dark One,” Morrison says. “I think that there’s no way she could ever be the same knowing that she’s capable of doing some of the things that she’s now done. Yes, they were because there was a Darkness within her, but I think she’ll be humbled by that. She will be someone who is more apathetic to some of the other characters in a certain way because she will have also experienced what it was like to be driven by that kind of Darkness.”

And while Emma is less than pleased that Gold is now the Dark One, the cast is beyond excited for Carlyle to step back into that role. “It’s always good to go home,” Goodwin says playfully. Adds her real-life husband Dallas: “Maybe it’s in its rightful place. I think a world without Dark Ones would probably be good, but it wouldn’t be a balanced world. Who knows, maybe we actually need Dark Ones in order to see the light.”

“That’s what he was hired to do, and he’s just so good at it,” Parrilla concurs. “But we’re also really pissed at [Gold], because he set Hook up. It’s classic Gold, classic Rumple to pull an act like this. But we need him. We need him to navigate us through the Underworld. Him being the Dark One is almost kind of a good thing for us, because he is on our team. Even though he’s always pulling these tricks and schemes, he is on our team. Henry’s his grandson. There’s that connection. I don’t think he would do anything to hurt Henry at this point, but I think we’re all pissed at him.”

Even with the Dark One on their side, rescuing Hook won’t be so simple. “Hook’s experience of the Underworld so far is slightly different from everyone else’s,”O’Donoghue teases cryptically. “He’s not with them. He’s in a very complicated and difficult situation, which is really all that I can say about that. He’s not having a great time, to be honest. There’s a definite feeling of a prison. I don’t think Hook really knows what the entire Underworld is like. He hasn’t really seen a huge amount of this. He’s in a place where he hasn’t seen that Storybrooke is the Underworld.” As for why he’s there, O’Donoghue wasn’t yet clued in. “At this moment, I don’t know exactly his unfinished business or what it is, so as much as I would try to be cagey about it, there’s no point because I don’t actually know.”
