Captain Swan Cuteness: Let’s get straight to the point: When asked if there will be epic Killian and Emma scenes headed our way in the 100th, O'Donoghue’s response was cheeky and quick: “Maybe….” he said with a coy smile.
When we (obviously!) pressed for more details, it was clear that O'Donoghue was enjoying this game of revealing as little as possible. “I can’t give you more than that!” he laughed. “This is what’s great about these questions because I’m literally just going to say, ‘Maybe… Maybe there will be some good Captain Swan moments. Maybe.’”
Morrison, on the other hand, was much more open about Emma’s determination to be reunited with her dashing man. “I mean, I think there’s no limits as to where she’s willing to go at this point,” the starlet said. “She’s gone through so much to get to a place in her life where she’s strong enough and vulnerable enough to love without walls up, which I think is a really brave thing.”
“We all have gone through certain disappointment and pains in life, so we put up walls. It’s very hard to love without limits, and without conditions, and in a way where you’re not going to self-destruct something. It’s scary,” Morrison continued.
O'Donoghue believes that the reason fans adore this couple so deeply is because Killian and Emma continuously fight for their love. “I think because it’s hard work for them,” he explained. “I don’t mean that to sound in a bad way. Relationships are the best things the world when you connect so deeply with somebody, but at times, those strains are hard to deal with.”
The 35-year-old actor continued, “I know it’s fantastical because, obviously, he’s Captain Hook and she’s the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, but in a weird way it’s kind of real. I think that’s why people respond to it because it’s not easy. It’s not just, 'Oh look at them! They’re in love! Fantastic.’ It’s hard and they work at it, and they love each other and that’s what it is.”
Morrison echoed her co-star’s sentiments and spilled that Emma is willing to do whatever it takes to reunite with Killian this year. “She’s in this really vulnerable place and I think she’d rather die than not be with him,” Morrison confessed. “I’m not the writers. I didn’t write that, but I just think that from her perspective she feels like the best version of her life will be with him.”
