Once Upon a Time' Stars Tackle 11 Unanswered Season 4 Questions

September 25, 2014   |   Written by The Hollywood Reporter

Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Lana Parrilla, Colin O’Donoghue and others preview the season’s non-‘Frozen’ arcs
With Frozen on the horizon in the Once Upon a Time universe, what else can viewers expect from the new season?

At the end of last season, Emma and Captain Hook inadvertently left a portal open, allowing just enough time for Frozen’s Elsa to slip into town. Plus, there was the awkward love triangle between Regina, Robin Hood and his once-dead wife Marian, Mr. Gold and Belle’s marriage lie and the Charmings’ venture into parenthood. As Jennifer Morrison tells The Hollywood Reporter, the premiere contains “a mess of information” that she promises will “come together.”

Ahead of Sunday’s return, the Once stars talk to THR about season-four’s biggest non-Frozen questions.

Can Captain Hook and Emma be in a healthy relationship?

Things were looking good for the happy couple at the end of season three but in Storybrooke, that bliss is only temporary. “They’ve really invested in maybe wanting to be together,” Colin O’Donoghue tells THR. “Emma is The Savior and Hook is a 200-year-old pirate — it’s never going to be plain sailing or easy going. But they’re going to try their best to make their relationship work.” In doing so, Hook — who will “do whatever it takes, good or bad” to maintain their romance — will be forced to decide whether “he can find a place for Emma within his heart when she’s so busy trying to save the world,” O’Donoghue adds.

Morrison echoes that sentiment, saying that though Emma and Hook both desire “to be the better versions of themselves and vulnerable enough to be close to someone romantically,” it’s easier said than done, especially when more immediate threats like Elsa’s snow monster loom. “There’s a lot of trying to work out a relationship in the midst of a lot of chaos, which is funny at times and heartbreaking at times, and causes them to really figure out how this could or couldn’t work,” she says.

How does Hook adapt to modern clothes?

Over the course of the season, the pirate will shed his leather coat for more contemporary clothing — a change O’Donoghue was particularly excited about. “It was nice because I’ve been wearing a 50-pound leather jacket [for two seasons]. It gets pretty hot,” he says. Hook’s new look, which O’Donoghue likens to “a ’70s rockstar,” still maintains “an element of who he is, even though he’s trying to fit into this world. It’s his idea of what it would be like.”
