Can you talk about how you’ll be putting the focus back on the original characters?
HOROWITZ: As far as focusing on our core cast in the upcoming storytelling, it isn’t so much about the outside forces coming into our world, but about how these outside forces impact our core characters and what it’s going to do to them and their relationships.
KITSIS: We’re going to really explore what makes a hero and what makes a villain. Is it as black and white as just that? Or are there gray areas, which are always much more fun to write about. We’re going to pick up on a lot of things that we set up in the first half of the season. Regina and Robin (Sean Maguire), Rumple and Belle (Emilie de Ravin). We’re going to get more Snow and Charming. We’re going to get more Emma and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue).

Will we also get to see more of Hook’s backstory?
KITSIS: We’re going to see a Hook backstory, absolutely. We’re going to see him at his most pirate-y.

Can you talk about Hook and Belle working together?
KITSIS: What’s interesting is Hook actually shot her in season 2. He used her as a pawn to get back his revenge for Mr. Gold, but now they both find themselves on similar ground, which is they both feel betrayed by Rumplestiltskin. He literally had both their hearts. Hook feels a lot of shame and guilt for getting rid of the fairies. Belle feels upset because she was deceived. We’re going to see them work together to try to repair some of the damage done.

What’s next for Emma and Hook’s relationship?
KITSIS: What we’re trying to do is just show a relationship, a real one, even though it’s between Captain Hook and the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. What we’re going to do is we’re going to see them grow and we’re going to see them get tested. Like all things, sometimes things get in the way of just purely your relationship; sometimes life gets in the way of it.
