Once Upon a Time: Hook's past will come back to haunt him

Colin O'Donoghue previews what’s in store in season 6

Now that the Land of Untold Stories has been unleashed on Storybrooke, everyone’s pasts will be coming back to haunt them onOnce Upon a Time — and that’s especially prevalent for Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) as he grapples with trying to be a hero this season.

During Sunday’s episode, Hook will take a step a step in a heroic direction by protecting Belle (Emilie de Ravin) from Rumple (Robert Carlyle), even if he has his own motives for doing so. Little does Hook know, however, that there’s an even greater threat roaming Storybrooke who may be responsible for Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison)demise. How will Hook feel when he finds out about the prophecy? EW turned to O’Donoghue to find out:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start off with Sunday’s episode. Belle will be turning to Hook for help in hiding from Rumple. What can you tease?

COLIN O’DONOGHUE: She obviously wants to shield Rumple from being in her life or her unborn child’s life, and who better to hide something than a pirate, you know what I mean? He helps her escape and hide, but I can’t tell you where yet.

Does Hook still desire to kill Rumple?
That’s a very complicated and complex relationship. We haven’t really explored it so far this season, but I think deep down that will always be there. It’s been a part of Hook for hundreds of years, so I think it’s whether or not he decides to act on it or how he would go about doing that. In a way, even trying to hide Belle — even though he’s doing it for the right reasons, he’s doing it to help her — there’s a slight little one-upmanship going on there with Rumple and trying to get one over on him. But this season, Rumple, or Mr. Gold, he’s particularly dark. He’s as dark as probably any Dark One can get. So I guess maybe it will always be in the background.

Hook already suspects that Emma is hiding something from him — will that only intensify in the coming episode?
Yeah, she hasn’t told him the truth about her hand, and she hasn’t said anything about the vision that she had. Hook knows her so well that he can tell something is not right. The one thing that they’ve always had in their relationship is honesty — at times, they’ve even been brutally honest with each other. In hiding things from each other, they can tell when something is not right, so it will definitely play a big part in the coming episodes.

How do you think that’s going to start to affect their relationship, especially when he does find out about the prophecy?
Obviously I’d imagine that he wouldn’t be too happy that she’s been keeping something from him, something that is such a big thing. He probably just hasn’t been able to know her and be able to help her in whatever way she needs. I think he would probably find that as some sort of betrayal. I mean he loves her, so he’ll be annoyed I would think, but he’d probably forgive her.

What lengths do you think he will go to, as well as her family, to try and prevent her death?
He’d sacrifice himself for her if he had to. When he has to help her or if she ever needs anything from him, I mean, you saw even with getting her to kill him to go to the Underworld, he saved everybody, he’s willing to die for her. So he’d go to the ends of the Earth.

We are going to learn much more about Hook’s past this season. What can you tease in that regard?
We see a little bit, I think it’s episode 6 or something and there’s quite a bit we see in Hook’s past. We might learn a little bit more about his family, his father’s side of the family that Hook didn’t know about. We learn a little bit more about that and see some of the characters that he’s encountered in his past. We get to see a bit more of Hook’s past and I was delighted to get to do that.

How is he struggling this year with trying to be a hero?
I think he’s accepted it, that that’s who he is at the minute. He’s not really struggling that much at the minute with the idea of being that, because he’s enjoying being a part of Emma’s life and trying to make a life with her. Now that he’s found love again, he’s happy to go back to being an honorable person. Obviously, there’s so many things that he’s done in his past that are bound to bubble up and affect his relationship with others in Storybrooke. At the minute, he’s enjoying being a part of Emma’s life.

There’s a lot of people coming in from the Land of Untold Stories. What connections will Hook have to these people?
Yeah, you definitely see that in this upcoming hour, not in this episode, but the one that I was just talking about with Hook’s backstory. We’ll meet a couple of characters there who Hook had encountered in his past and they managed to find a way to the Land of Untold Stories. They come back and haunt him a little bit and, in some ways, affect his relationships with some of the people that he’s very, very close with. He has to find a way to deal with that and put his past in the past.

What kind of dynamic does he have with Captain Nemo?
He definitely knows Captain Nemo and he has spent time with him. I think he has a healthy respect, if you want to call it that, for Nemo and we’ll get to see a little bit of their relationship and how they’ve interacted with each other.

How does Hook feel about the Evil Queen being alive? What threat does she pose to him in particular?
The problem with the Evil Queen is she’s the real threat to everybody this season, because she doesn’t have any of the restrictions that Regina would have had, even though she was evil. The Evil Queen is now pure evil. Hook doesn’t particularly like her, because she wants to basically kill everybody, so he will try to stop that and try to find a way to get rid of the Evil Queen.

Probability of seeing heartbroken/crying Ja'far is actually thing that I am afraid of. I mean he tried to stop Sin, he has been his friend for such a long time. He deserve to be happy but yeah, Ohtaka's story. Oh, and I don't think Sin died that cheaply.

That’s actually something I was looking forward to seeing— I want to see the reactions. It will be very sad, though. Ja’far has always been there for Sinbad and he’s tried so much to help him, but in the end his input was meaningless and Sinbad went through with his plan anyways. It’s really sad to think that right after Ja’far gave him advice, Sinbad went through with his plan and it resulted in his demise.

And I agree, I don’t think Sinbad would die that easily. But if he really isn’t dead, I want there to be something to show that it happened. Amnesia, lack of his metal vessels, missing limbs; I want there to be at least a little bit of proof of what happened to him, and I want for it to cause some kind of impact on his character and the story.

Currently, I am writing a story with an asexual assassin as the main character. Her best friend has been taking by a mafia don as retribution for his father's demise. How do I introduce the main antagonist and make sure this is not too cliché?

First impressions count, even for characters. This is why I suggest to answer your own question you figure out how you want this antagonist to be viewed by the reader. 

You could take the route of introducing the don as a grieving son who the assassin doesn’t know will later come after her, which would cast some sympathy toward the antagonist (this can be a great thing, adds to the motive and humanity of the character). 

You could have them show up and brutally rip the best friend from the MC as they are saying goodbye after a nice day out, which would shock the reader and have them see the antagonist as a skilled and formidable opponent while wondering why they are targeting the MC in this way. 

You could have the assassin and the don meet in a neutral sort of setting where the MC knows he is a mafia don but not that he is “the son” and therefore doesn’t really care as she meets plenty of criminals in her life, but dearly wishes she had killed him when she first saw him later on in the plot.  

Maybe the assassin doesn’t meet him in person. He sends out his cronies to do the dirty work and sits in his untouchable fortress and taunts her over the phone. 

How do you think the antagonist would want to approach this situation and how would they introduce themselves to the MC?

Ch. 13: The Roast

First of all, we got 2 new members to the team from @pillow-widow and @nilesfucker​ respectively

we were able to bring 15 units again, so i decided to let rae and ren sit this one out, cuz theyre pretty strong

the promoted units here hit really damn hard, man. like its too damn early to be throwing this kind of bullshit at me

also, clutch pikes pulling thru with the 56% hit

there was really no point of fighting xander or ryoma. like they dont drop any items but that doesnt mean i wont beat the shit out of them for being shitheads in this chapter

altair ended up sealing xander’s fiery demise…

while sarah sealed ryoma’s. this was was clutch idagaf if its 83% i dont trust shit in this godforsaken game. and look at that bullshit 5% crit chance. i had to have altair stand next to him for Heartseeker to work and have Erin Draconix Hex his ass. (not pictured, but i had Sarah Ragnarok Scarlet to get rid of Ryomas’s Bushido)

altair also ragnarok the boss and ended this 41 turn chapter. overall things went pretty smoothly. enemies hit hard so i had to fly on Willa to heal everyone, it was hectic. i had fun blocking the path with the debris shit.  i enjoyed having Altair and Sarah burn everything with ragnarok so i kept them together just to watch the destruction unfold.
