After receiving a cryptic warning from Lancelot about Arthur’s intentions, Mary Margaret realizes Arthur may be the heroes’ biggest threat, but when she is unable to convince David of the danger, she takes matters into her own hands. Meanwhile, Hook’s unwavering love for Emma provides a glimmer of hope in her struggle against the unrelenting voice of Rumplestiltskin. In a Camelot flashback, Guinevere senses that Arthur is losing his way, consumed by his obsession with making Excalibur whole, so she sets out with Lancelot on her own quest into the heart of darkness. In Storybrooke, Dark Emma unleashes a secret weapon in the next phase of her plan to find the brave soul she needs to draw Excalibur from the stone, on “Once Upon a Time,” Sunday, October 18th on ABC.

Put away your fanfiction, the Captain’s backstory is finally coming to Once Upon a Time season 5! Announced today, the search is on to cast Hook’s father to play opposite a young Killian. After three seasons, fans have only ever gotten as far back as Killian and his brother heading to Neverland. It is high time we dove into the wildly popular pirate’s backstory and see how he and his brother became the seafaring lads we met in season 3!

Once Upon a Time will take a closer look at Hook’s past — not to mention Belle’s belly — during Season 5, the show’s producers announced Friday during a New York Comic-Con panel moderated by TVLine’s Matt Mitovich.

Hook’s father will be introduced prior to the ABC drama’s long winter break — in an episode focusing on Colin O’Donoghue’s alter ego and Lana Parilla’s Evil Queen — the series’ co-creators told the audience.

“We’re going to see an adventure with Hook and the Evil Queen,” EP Adam Horowitz previewed.

Hook’s father, who has yet to be cast, will be seen in flashbacks examining the character’s childhood. “We’ll see Hook as a little boy,” affirmed EP Eddy Kitsis.

Alright, Oncers — Listen very carefully to the following instructions!

Before you press play on our exclusive Once Upon a Time sneak peek from this Sunday’s episode — which features a truly incredible Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) scene! — there are a few rules you need to follow…

First, try to watch the clip in a private space because your incessant screaming and squealing will surely cause a scene. Second, don’t panic. This clip will not expire, so feel free to keep it on repeat for the next four days so you can relive the adorableness over and over again. And lastly, if possible, place a few pillows on the floor around you. When you pass out from swooning too hard, it would be nice for you to have a soft place to land.

Ready… set… watch!

Okay, that was SO incredibly good, right?

The dress. The ponytail. The date on the Jolly Roger! (We told you we’d be seeing that ship again…) It all adds up to be one of our favorite, and most intense scenes, of the season.

But, listen, even though we’d love to believe that things are like old, grilled cheese-loving times between Emma and Killian, we’re not naïve.

We know that Emma is (probably) using her Dark Swan powers to deceive her fella, so that he can be the hero to pull Excalibur from the stone — but it was still nice to see a throwback to one of the show’s most iconic moments.

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

Captain Guyliner. Handless Wonder. Dashing Raspcallion. The most attractive pirate in the history of the world… (Okaaaay, fine! We might have made up that last nickname.)

If you couldn’t already tell, we’re absolutely hooked on Colin O’Donoghue’s character, Killian Jones, on Once Upon a Time — and we know that you are too!

To celebrate, we’re bringing you a Hook-centric article this week that’s filled to the brim with exclusive season five scoop from executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis. So go on, walk the plank to find out what’s next for your favorite pirate.

Last week, we gave you a little teaser as to whether or not this season will follow Jennifer Morrison’s cheeky tease to have Emma “suck [Hook] into the darkness” with her, and now it’s time for the full answer!

“Well, that’s an interesting thing to talk about because Hook is a person who has had much darkness in him,” Horowitz explained. “And he has been around for hundreds of years battling that, and he has spent a large portion of that trying to kill a Dark One.”

“Now, he’s spending a large portion of his time trying to save a Dark One,” Horowitz continued. “He’s also a person who has flirted with darkness for a very long time, so seeing what Emma is going to go through is going to be a tricky situation.”

Fans were devastated in the season four finale when Emma finally said those three little magical words, only to then sacrifice herself to the darkness. Now, it’s time to explore The Dark Swan’s internal conflicts between her love for Hook and her infatuation with evil.

“I think Dark Ones give into their darkest impulses and they are capable of love,” Horowitz said. “But it’s about the choices they make and the things that they do in pursuit of the things that they want.”

“Yeah, it’s an interesting season,” Kitsis furthered “The two people best equipped to help Emma fight the darkness are Regina and Hook. She’s going to rely upon Hook and Regina to really guide her through what is going to be the biggest test in her life.”

And for all those pirate lovers who are dying to discover more about Killian’s mysterious past, we have some amazing news for you: “We are going to see that, most likely, in the second half of the season,” Kitsis revealed. “We’re going to see more of Hook’s life.” (Now would be a great time to get out your inhaler and just remember to breathe, Oncers.)

“With this season, we do plan to see more of Hook’s life and his backstory,” Horowitz added.

“But I think things about Hook’s past that we’ve touched on — whether it be his brother, or talking about his father — those events in his life resonate in the first half of this season as well in a very important way.”

And, of course, you cannot focus on a pirate’s past without thinking about his ship. Kitsis confirmed that we will see the Jolly Roger again this season — he’s just not spilling when! “The Jolly Roger is where we last left it from the Ursula episode last year. It’s in the harbor in Storybrooke,” he said.

Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
