We’ve got a lot of ground to cover, and a lot of spoilers to spill, so let’s get straight to it. Now that fans are officially in-the-know about Snowing’s jaw-dropping secret, Hook’s Queens of Darkness connection, and Regina’s double-agent plan, it’s time to look ahead at what’s coming next with scoop from OUAT’s co-executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.

Switching gears to Emma’s on-screen beau, we’re thrilled that fans finally know the secret that we’ve been dying to spill: Hook knows Ursula! Hang on for just a bit longer, curious Oncers, because all of your Sea Queen-related questions will be answered in episode 15.

“You’re going to see an entire flashback of what happened. You’re going to see the origin of Ursula,” Kitsis said. “Similar to what we’ve done with Cora/young Cora or Emma/Young Emma — as we all know, Hook is about 385 years old. It’s the guy-liner — We’re going to meet Ursula at around eighteen, nineteen.”

“[It’ll] explain what he did to her,” the showrunner continued. “No, it is not sexual. It is, as he said, far worse. When you think about what would be worse than having your heart broken, I would say having your soul crushed.”

Since the trip to the past altered time, would Emma and Hook be present in the storybook now during that time?
Their presence only altered a very tiny bit, which we showed in the season finale last year. We saw that Princess Leia and Prince Charles were at the ball. That’s the extent of their involvement.

Will Emma and Hook have another crazy adventure this year?

Will we ever see Hook as a young boy?
Not this season, but someday.

How much will we explore Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Ursula’s (Merrin Dungey) past?
Edward Kitsis:
We’re getting a whole episode. Episode 15 will explain what he did to her. It was not sexual. It is, as he said, far worse. When you think about what would be worse than having your heart broken. I would say it was having your soul crushed. You’re going to see the entire flashback of what happened. You’re going to see the entire origin of Ursula.

How does Ursula’s dad fit into that? You cast Ernie Hudson as her dad.
Similar to what we’ve done with Cora, Young Cora and Emma, Young Emma, we’re going to meet Ursula at about 18 or 19. As we all know, Hook is about 385 years old. It’s the guy liner.

Will Will Scarlet be a target for Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle)? How jealous is Rumple?
He’s not happy.
Kitsis: Listen, the last person who took his woman was Hook, and he took his hand off and killed his wife, so I’d be worried.

On Once Upon a Time‘s spring premiere, it looked like Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) were getting along like fairy-tale franks and beans (What? It’s a thing. Just ask Granny.). Unfortunately, in this exclusive sneak peek of Sunday’s episode (8/7c, ABC), that little honeymoon period appears to have passed. Watch the video above to see what’s gotten in the way of the lovebirds’ happiness.

We can’t even imagine what sordid past he and Ursula (Merrin Dungey) have together. Did he eat calamari in front of her? Or maybe she once stole his hook? Fortunately, all is not lost between him and Emma. Even if her trust in him is tested, series co-creator Edward Kitsis assures TVGuide.com, “Hook feels that his job is protecting Emma’s heart at all costs, so we will see that play out.”

Could contain spoilers.

Question: Do you have any scoop on what’s going with Once Upon a Time’s Hook? —Jessica
Episode 15 (airing March 15) will reveal why the pirate has a quite complicated past with sea witch Ursula — and the nature of it is “far worse” than any romantic indiscretion, says co-creator Eddy Kitsis. “When you think about what would be worse than having your heart broken, I would say having your soul crushed. You’re going to see the entire flashback of what happened, with the origin of Ursula.”

Question: Is Once Upon a Time actually considering a Belle/Hook pairing or are they just keeping the two busy, while Rumple and Emma are busy with the Queens of Darkness? —Linda
No, no, no. They’re not hinting at a Belle/Hook pairing. Belle and Will Scarlett, however, may be a different story, as you’ll see teased this Sunday. As series co-creator Eddy Kitsis notes, Belle and Will, after all, have “a lot in common,” in that “they both fell in love with villains (Rumple and Wonderland’s Red Queen, respectively), and they both hoped that these villains would be redeemed.” And they both were let down. With Rumple banished (as far as Belle knows!) and Anastasia MIA, “Anytime you have your heart broken,” Kitsis says, “you look for a way to smile again.”
