Once Upon A Time: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Emma And Hook’s Relationship
In season 5, a lot of happenings will shake up and test her relationship with Hook and Regina (Lana Parilla) and her family, the report relays. 'Once Upon A Time' Season 6: Hook's Past Tests Relationships – Henry And Emma Team Up – Regina Still Has Some Wickedness Inside?. The 'ship (dubbed “Captain Swan” by fans) wasn't the first romantic relationship that Emma was in, but it was by far the most popular.
Sure, they've lied to, tricked, and even physically fought one another, but doesn't that just scream of Judy and Johnny having it out at the Homecoming Dance? Are these two so scarred by woe-begotten past loves that they just can't figure out how grown-ups make a relationship work?
They've been through a lot, both separately and together, and they obviously got it together enough to start their own family.
But plenty of regular people do that and still behave immaturely. Not only could it have been written differently without breaking the laws that the entire show was based upon, but it also felt like a cheap deus ex machina to the fans. If this were always an option, too many tales could have ended differently.
Why do Hook and Emma get special treatment here?
Do other, perhaps even more deserving, characters just get the short end of the stick because they're not the hot couple? It certainly seems so. Sure, he didn't know her at first, and there were "extenuating circumstances" between his revenge on the crocodile, Cora owning his heart and so forth, but this is the kind of drama that doesn't make for a happy family Thanksgiving conversation-starter.
It seems like there should be some sort of threshold to mark where a relationship just becomes a ridiculous idea. Perhaps when one of your family members draws blood on your lover, or vice versa? This is especially true for important things in life, like whether or not to have children, or whether or not to bring a woman who's supposed to be five feet under back to the future with you.
Even Marty McFly knows that's a bad idea. Emma just couldn't listen to Hook about Marian, which led to Zelena's deception of Robin and ultimately the archer's demise. Whether or not our heroes and villains will be able to use The Author to get what they want will be one of the central conflicts that unfolds. And taking a step back, it's not just about finding The Author to get a happy ending, it's finding out what happy endings are for each of our characters.
What is Gold's happy ending? He seems to have had two of them and he blew them. And Regina seems to have an inability to be happy. So there's an exploration of happiness and what that means to somebody is something we're also exploring.
Will her actions make her cause more sympathetic to The Author? If there's anyone on the show who's kind of gotten the short end of the stick, it's Regina. She did horrible, horrible things but she has continually done the right thing.
Are Hook and Emma really true love?
She's definitely somebody who's trying to redeem themselves. A big question that we're asking on the second half of the season is: If you do something bad, can you come back from it? Does it make you a villain or can you still be a hero? I think that is a realistic thing. Very few people are good all the time. What can you say about seeing Robin Hood again? Robin Hood returns to the world of Once Upon a Time and how he comes back and why and when and where we want to keep a secret for now.
But needless to say, he may have left at the end of the winter finale, but he has not been forgotten. His presence is felt at the start before he's going to be reintroduced.
While Regina's been working to reunite with him, has he been doing the same? Or just surviving in our world? We are going to answer that question with an entire episode devoted to what happened to Robin Hood when he goes to New York.
Why does everybody end up in New York? It's between that and Boston. It's writer's pick that it's in New York. And it's the same reason why Emma spent foster home time in Minnesota because that's where I'm from. So sometimes it's just giving a shout-out to those you love. When they are sent back in time together, they have several intimate scenes.
