For the Once Upon a Time fans who were fretting over Emma and Hook being separated by a new curse and thus losing their happy ending, suddenly everything is clear.

Or clearer.

For as revealed on Friday night in the second episode of Season 7, Seattle police detective Rogers is not a cursed version of the Captain Hook we know but instead is actually the Wish Realm’s version of the infamous pirate.

Though Wish Hook was in the same, sad (rotund) shape as when we met him in Season 6, a bit of blood from his KO’d doppelganger and a wave of Lady Tremaine’s fairy wand turned him into an exact Xerox. He then aimed to derail Henry’s pursuit of Cinderella and take claim the other Hook’s life and wife. But once the news that Emma had been waiting to share with Henry got out — she is pregnant with her and Hook’s first child together — the pretender pirate had a change of poisoned heart and aborted his plan.

Henry meanwhile will continue to seek out his own story, now teamed with Wish Hook and Regina, who didn’t return to Storybrooke with Emma and her husband.

Following their New York Comic-Con panel, here is what Once creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis shared with TVLine about the decision to tuck a bundle of joy into Jennifer Morrison’s final appearance as Emma. Plus, does the swashbuckler switcheroo mean that Roni and Weaver aren’t who we think they are either?

TVLINE | Talk about the decision to reveal Emma as pregnant. Was it in part to get the most bang out of Jennifer Morrison’s final appearance?
EDDY KITSIS | Given the ending that we came up with last year — that happy endings are everyone living their life with the people they love and doing what they love to do — this was really the next step in the relationship between them. They’re a newly married couple and it’s the cycle of life. The audience was worried we’d kill Emma or do something crazy, but the truth is they’re living their lives in Storybrooke, happy.
ADAM HOROWITZ | This was an extension of the happy ending you saw between Emma and Hook last year, but another thing that’s really important to understand, and will become more apparent as the season goes along, is this is not a replacement for Henry. In Emma’s mind, Henry will be back sooner or later.
KITSIS | It’s like someone who moves from New York to Milwaukee and comes home for Thanksgiving.
HOROWITZ | The other thing to realize — and this is a tricky thing to get your head around, but if you think about it, it makes sense — is that in the timeline where Once Upon a Time exists this season, it’s not like Emma has been away from Henry for 10 years and Lucy has completely grown up. [In this episode] she is seeing Henry right around the time when he’s first met Cinderella. It’s not like Emma is just sitting on her Hands going, “I wonder what happened to Henry?” She’s gone off to have this life, and as Eddy said, it’s like your son moved to New York. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have their off-show interaction. Because as we’ve said, this is the last time we’re seeing Jennifer — she was gracious enough to give us this episode — and for us that was a continuation of the happiness.
KITSIS | The family grows.

TVLINE | People have been wondering about the math of it all….
HOROWITZ | To everybody scratching their head doing math, our hope is they go on the ride and when they get to the end of the season they’ll look back and go, “Ohhhh, this makes sense.” And Emma and Henry are still a family unit. It’s important for the audience not to feel like she’s abandoned Henry to go off and do whatever. Sure, we’re not seeing Emma on the show going forward, but luckily we do a show that deals in magic and different realms.
KITSIS | They FaceTime off-screen through a magic mirror.

TVLINE | How does this pregnancy reveal inform Rogers’ storyline?
HOROWITZ | It actually has a massive impact on Rogers, and you saw that in the episode. He was there to kill Hook and take over his life, because he has a poisoned heart that he thinks Emma can heal it. But when he discovered that Hook and Emma are having a child, it awakened the bit of good inside him.
KITSIS | And the reason Wish Hook is doing all this is because he has a daughter he’s been separated from through a curse, and he’s trying to find his way back to her.
HOROWITZ | Wish Hook’s path to redemption in Hyperion Heights is about finding this daughter and reuniting with her, and healing his poisoned heart. In Hyperion Heights, he doesn’t know he has a missing daughter or who he is, but this missing girl case is the analog for the missing daughter in the fairy tale realm.

TVLINE | Does this Rogers/Wish Hook twist mean that Weaver and Roni aren’t actually new personas for Rumple and Regina?
HOROWITZ | No, Rogers is the only one we’ve done with this. By Episode 4, Weaver being Rumple and all that becomes clear — Regina/Roni and Weaver/Rumple are who they are — and you’re going to find out the whole Belle and Rumple story, as well.

So that‘s how Hook is sticking with Once Upon a Time!

Sunday’s Hook-centric episode revealed that the Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) we thought we were watching in Hyperion Heights during last week’s season premiere wasn’t actually the one-armed pirate we’ve come to know and love since season 2.

When Henry (Andrew J. West) called upon his family for help in Enchanted Forest flashbacks, Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parrilla), and Hook all answer the call — but so does Wish Hook! Remember that drunken, bumbling Wish Realm version of Hook we met last season? Well, he momentarily aligns with Lady Tremaine (Gabrielle Anwar) to make him look like our Hook in a bid gain Emma’s heart, which he believes will help heal his poisoned heart so he can then find his missing daughter. Yup!Ultimately, Wish Hook discovers Emma is pregnant, so he lets her and Hook-Prime return to Storybrooke to get their happy ending. It’s then Wish Hook and Regina who continue on this journey with Henry, thus answering the question of how O’Donoghue is sticking with the show, but Morrison is not.

“I was really happy that they got their happy ending, to be honest,” O’Donoghue tells EW. “It had been such a long journey for those two characters, and such a difficult journey that I was glad to see that, in the end, they get their happy ending, because that was the whole point of the musical episode, and the big number with a happy beginning right before the Black Fairy’s curse hit. For me, I think it was the right way to go for those two characters.”

Knowing he’d be playing a different version of this character is actually one of the reasons the actor decided to continue on with the show. “I knew about Wish Hook from early on,” O’Donoghue says. “I had spoken to Eddy [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz] about that. Also, because Wish Hook — not the younger version of Wish Hook, but the older version of Wish Hook — was one of my favorite versions of him to play, so it was exciting to get to do that. Trying to bring elements of who that crazy old man was into this younger version of him has been fun.”

“It’s good because it also allows Hook to move on, because it’s a different version of him from the Emma-Hook relationship, which has been such a huge part of the show,” O’Donoghue continues. “It’s a very clever way of making sure the Captain Swan fans — fans of Hook and Emma — get their happy ending after going on such a big journey with them for the last few seasons. I think it’s a clever way of us being able to move on with a new version of Hook.”

But how different is this version of Hook? As O’Donoghue reveals, Wish Realm Hook and Hook-Prime both have similar backgrounds, but where their experiences differ is that the Evil Queen never cast her curse in the Wish Realm. “They had the same journey up until that point, so they are similar,” O’Donoghue says. “Wish Hook has a whole different set of rules and agendas that the original Hook didn’t have. Whereas his main thing was to get revenge on Rumplestiltskin, Wish Hook has a separate thing.”

That separate thing is finding his missing daughter — twist! — which actually gives him a similar M.O. to the original Hook in a surprising way. “We see that that’s where Wish Hook’s main motive lies in him wanting to find his daughter,” O’Donoghue says. “I guess it’s similar to original Hook where he was motivated by love for Milah, everything that Wish Hook does is motivated out of love for his daughter. It’s been fascinating to try and explore how to make Wish Hook the same as the other version of Hook that I played. That’s been a big thing for me for the season is trying to figure out how do I keep this character similar enough for him to be the same character on the show, but different enough for him to be interesting and kind of new?”

Naturally, one of the burning questions is: Who is Hook’s daughter? Alas, O’Donoghue won’t reveal that just yet. All viewers know is she was locked away by an evil witch. But even more pressing: Who is the mother? Again, O’Donoghue is mum. “No,” O’Donoghue says with a hearty laugh. “But I can tease that we will get to find out.”

Once Upon a Time airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
