Revolution | The Season 1 finale has yet to air, and already NBC’s freshman hit is busy recruiting reinforcements for the battles yet to come. Season 2 casting calls have gone out for the possibly series regular role of Gene, a folsky, 60something doctor from a small Texas town, as well as the recurring characters of Cynthia (a religious single mom), Annabeth (a femme fatale who runs an entertainment “mecca” of sorts), Titus (a slightly psychotic professor) and a handsome sheriff in his 30s. As for Monday’s season-ender itself, Elizabeth Mitchell assures us, “Forces collide…. Forces most definitely collide!”

And now, reader questions answered….

Longtime reader, first-time question-asker. Would looooove some scoop on Burn Notice‘s final season! –Maia
Welcome to the jungle — and thank you for asking about the season premiere I screened earlier today (and airing June 6). Though the action picks up nine months after the events of the finale, there are flashbacks to explain exactly why Michael re-upped with the agency that burned him — even if it meant ostracizing friends, family and one fab femme. We then in short order meet Adrian Pasdar’s character, a terrorist that lands in Michael’s crosshairs, as well as catch a few glimpses of Fi’s new beau/partner in bounty hunting (played by General Hospital‘s Stephen Martines). All told, the opener is — save for one boffo boner by Ma — quite solid, washing away any bad taste left by the so-so Season 6 finale. Then, in Episode 100 (June 13), you’ll get flashbacks that are sure to top the mornin’ of many a Michael/Fi fan.

Is it just me, or do you think Hook has feelings for Emma on Once Upon a Time? Any scoop on them would be awesome! –Kelley B
You know my stance on the whole Emma thing: What guy wouldn’t? But where Hook is concerned, seeing as he’s now on a journey with two eligible bachelorettes, the Jolly Roger might transform into the Love Boat. “It’s probably about time he sort of found another love in his life,” Colin O’Donoghue shared with me at season’s end. “But if it was a toss-up between [traveling companions] Regina or Emma, I’m not sure exactly who he’d go for.” Given that Emma is currently reeling from the loss of Neal, “Maybe he’ll have fun with Regina, while he’s waiting for Emma,” the pirate’s portrayer ventures. “Who knows!”

I’m so excited that Anna Camp is returning to True Blood. Any scoop on how Sarah is going to react to Steve coming out of the closet? Or maybe she already knew he was gay all along? –Rashad
God-loving Sarah resurfaces in this season’s third episode and wastes no time tearing into her ex — but it’s his vampiric orientation she seems to have the bigger issue with.

I was wondering if Suburgatory still has a 22-episode order, seeing how it’s been pushed to mid-season. –Stefan
Because it did wind up as a midseason entry, Suburgatory was renewed for just 13 episodes, I am hearing — though with success ABC can always add to that order.

Got any NCIS scoops, particularly on McGee? –Marla
As revealed in the season finale, Tim’s got himself a new honey. And though show boss Gary Glasberg has yet to decide what “type” the mysterious Delilah is, viewers will eventually get to lay eyes on her. “I’m hoping to pick [that storyline] up and explain more — and hopefully, at some point, we’ll get to meet Delilah, as well,” Glasberg says.

Rookie Blue is back!!! And I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am!! I’m wondering if Luke is going to be a part of this season at all, or have they totally phased his character out? — Allison
Luke (played by Eric Johnson) will definitely be back for a few big episodes this season — including an intense mid-season case featuring one of the ABC drama’s past (and most dangerous) villains.

I love the dynamic between Rizzoli & Isles‘ Jane and Casey. Can you please give us some info on what’s going to happen to them? –Tracie
The June 25 season premiere has a scene (or several) to make you smile… followed by one that will furrow your brow, as it does Jane’s, when Casey reveals an itinerary that will take him out of town, and then some. “Trying to work out whatever it is [they have] — Jane’s not really ready to settle down, and he kind of is — is incredibly difficult to do while he’s back in Afghanistan,” notes Angie Harmon. As for the season a whole, the actress enthuses, “We’ve gone back a bit towards the pilot, as far as going more dramatic. The playful banter is still there, but the cases are a lot more serious — which I’m excited about.”

Are there any scoops yet on the long-lost Season 2 of Unforgettable (premiering July 28)? –Chris
Yes, and this is a fun one: A casting call has gone out for an actress who bears “a strong resemblance” to series lead Poppy Montgomery, to have dinner with me/maybe catch a movie play an elite thief. My guess: Carrie is called on to pass herself off as the burglar on the eve of a major heist.

I know this is being picky, but on Smash who won the Tony Award for best director? Did they even announce it? –Brantley
The acceptance speech played in the background of another scene, but a show rep confirmed for me that neither Tom nor Derek grabbed the trophy in that category.

I’ve seen a few promos for Major Crimes but none have shown Rusty. Is he still around? –Estee
Though the character was the target of some backlash during Season 1 — perhaps a scapegoat for TV’s trend at the time to inundate us with petulant teens — Rusty is back for Season 2. In fact, his fate looms large in the premiere, as Deputy D.A. Emma Rios (played by new series regular/My Name Is Earl alum Nadine Velazquez) vigorously preps the lad for his sure-to-be-difficult/dicey testimony in the Stroh case — and Ms. Rios’ demeanor is not improved a lick when she learns with whom her No. 1 witness has been living!

    Regarding OUAT show please keep lecheraous woman beater Overrated Hook away from Emma! She has too many values to hook up with someone who has beat women repeatly tried to kill her and Belle not mention help ruin the life of henry’s father and banged Henry’s grandma!

    • DJ says:

      Hook has never beat any woman on the show.

      • ihr says:

        Belle rings any bells?

        • CC says:

          He did NOT beat Belle, he hit her one time (other than pushing Emma out of his way, that’s the only time I remember him hitting a woman). Which, I suppose makes him PERFECT for Emma as she did the same thing to that guy who jumped bail. In fact, she might have been worse since she grabbed the back of his head and slammed his face into the steering wheel for suggesting that she didn’t know anything about family (at least Hook had some kind of excuse with his whole ‘avenging the death of his love’ quest). But, I guess that doesn’t count cause it was a woman hitting a guy, right??? Also, no one knows if he was actually planning on killing Belle in the dungeon. Regina stopped him when he raised his hook in the air.

          As for Millah (sp?) being Henry’s grandma, WHO CARES? It’s not like Henry’s ever met her or ever WILL meet her.

          • Cass says:

            Oh, good, if he only punched Belle in the face that one time, it’s fine. LOL. Hook apologists…

          • fey says:

            truth. I mean, not apologizing for Hook but some of these people act like other characters haven’t done awful things too. And it’s a freaking show every character doesn’t poop rainbows, they are characters with flaws all this hate is just sooo unnecessary and tiring and just sad.

          • fey says:

            btw that was @CC

        • mia says:

          What Hook did to Belle *wasnt* gendered violence though. He kidnapped + tortured her, but he didn’t do it because she was a woman. He didn’t get a thrill out of it because she was a woman. The entire scene wasn’t motivated by gender. Hook would have behaved that way towards anyone, man or woman. So yes, he technically hit a woman, but it wasn’t systemic gendered violence.

      • Sammy says:

        I guess you forgot when he knocked Belle unconscious(and was about to kill her with his hook) and pushed Emma into the wall to get to Mr. Gold?

        • ARRO says:

          Did he kill them, did he tore their hearts out and crush them, NO

          • A says:

            THIS! Rumple can do whatever he wants and get a free pass but any other villainous character who does bad things is the worst character in the world. Some forget how he killed his own wife, he imprisoned Belle, he killed the seeker to steal her powers, he beat up that guy for fun to impress Lacey, he envisions killing his own grandson on a daily basis. All of these awful and repetitive evil acts that Rumple does and some people just let that gloss over them and continue to support that character but refuse to do the same to Hook. Seriously, at least when Hook to Aurora’s heart he returned it. Rumple’s so-called “kindness” is only done when he forces the other party to owe him a favor.

          • Betsy says:

            except no one mentioned rumple or defended him, so what’s your point?

          • A says:

            @Betsy I believe the point is to demonstrate how some people can deem one character’s actions as forgiveable but other characters are refused the same courtesy

          • Nelly says:

            I don’t care what Rumpel has done. We aren’t talking about him. Hook has done so pretty terrible stuff and his fans always over look it because he is “misundertood”.

          • Sammy says:

            No, that wasn’t the topic. They asked when Hook ever beat a woman, and I stated the facts. Why bring up other characters? To take the subject off of Hook? Because you can’t come up with a good argument against it?

            He WAS going to kill Belle, btw. Regina stepped in the room in time to stop him. Oh and he did rip out someone’s heart. Remember Aurora? :)

          • Cass says:

            A’s point is that he/she has no defense for Hook, so it’s necessary to try to deflect blame onto Rumple. So subtle! And it can’t be turned back around that people who forgive Hook for his constant victimization of innocent people (let’s briefly recap the highlights: lame cuckold, deformed/diseased beggar, teenage orphan, chained-up prisoner, unconscious princess, mild-mannered former cricket) have no sympathy for Rumple, who has helped as many people as he’s hurt, and is under the influence of a dark curse. (See how it works?)

          • sara says:

            @cass Please don’t try to make it seem like Rumple has helped as many people as he’s hurt. Please.

          • Cass says:

            @ Sara, I never said he did it for nothing. Obviously he benefited. But I do think the numbers come out pretty even. We can make lists if you really want to. Who exactly has benefited from Hook’s actions? Even in the finale, Henry wouldn’t have been kidnapped in the first place if Hook hadn’t stolen the last bean.

          • AstridB says:

            Well, Cass, if you’re going to blame him for that, we could go deeper and blame Regina. The bean wouln’t be neccessary if she if she had’t created the detonator.
            That is when A argument make sense. People have double standars to judge characters and that bother me.

          • sara says:

            @Cass I don’t think preying on abuse victims and choosing prices they can’t pay really counts as ‘helping’. Nor do I think that it’ll even out the entire world that he cursed in order to get Bae back. Not really sure what you’re trying to say about Hook’s actions though. Because none of it at all would have happened if Rumple hadn’t been abusing his kid and murdered his ex-wife.

          • Cass says:

            AstridB, I can’t blame Hook for stealing the bean and betraying Emma and family? Why not? Sure, he gets credit for bringing it back but that doesn’t erase the original betrayal. And of course Regina is to blame for making the failsafe and wanting to set it off. And Rumple is to blame for creating the curse in the first place. See, this is how it works: people get blamed for *stuff they actually do.*

          • A says:

            Of course, I am not gonna defend all of Hook’s actions. He’s currently still in his villain stages on the show. He’s supposed to be wrong. He’s supposed to do bad things. I am not gonna sit here and defend him hitting Belle, or trying to shoot her, etc., because it just makes no sense to defend those type of things (unlike @Cass who seems to be trying to find ways to justify Rumple’s many more evil actions). I just used this issue with Rumple to show how people just dismiss one character because he’s done some bad things but can support others regardless of what they do. Such a double standard. Don’t make it sound like Rumple is this saint. Everything he has ever done to “help” people was selfish in some way and he had something to gain from it. It doesn’t matter if the numbers even out. He is no saint and can be a despicable character, yet somehow, some are still content with supporting the character. Why isn’t the same courtesy extended to other characters?
            Also, like @Astrid said if you’re gonna blame Hook for stealing the last bean, then you can place an even bigger blame on Regina for starting the whole mess with trying to destroy Storybrooke and everyone in it.

          • Cass says:

            A–Wait, what…? When did I ever try to justify Rumpel’s evil actions? Of course he’s done evil! As you say yourself, villains do evil. My point (and thank you for helping demonstrate it) is that there are more than enough double standards to go around. Thus, to you, my mentioning that people have benefited from Rumpel’s actions is excusing his evil, while you are not at all defending Hook’s actions by agreeing with ARRO, who seems to say that it is worse to murder someone by magically crushing their heart than by physically gouging it out of their chest. And while I accept that you would not justify all Hook’s evil, surely this thread alone demonstrates that not all his fans share your scruples? In addition to ARRO, we have someone explaining that it’s not *beating* if you knock a woman unconscious with the first punch; someone else assuring us that Hook’s violence isn’t gendered and he would be perfectly happy to punch and murder a male shackled prisoner; and another person below who tells us that it’s okay to repay someone who just saved your life by shooting them with the intent to erase their personhood forever, as long as you don’t want to *kill* them. Ah, poor Hook, such a victim of double standards…

        • sara says:

          Sounds like Belle should be falling in love with him. A little more murdering people she knows and keeping her hostage and he’d be just like Rumple.

    • Kerry says:

      Are you serious right now? Knocking someone unconscious before TRYING TO MURDER them is not abuse. I love how people still get more upset by Hook hitting Belle than by him trying to kill her five seconds later. Talk about oblivious. Call me crazy, but murder trumps almost everything….and there are actual serial killers on this show, of which Hook is not one. So get over it.

      • Nat says:

        Oh please. The only reason why he was “only” trying to kill Belle and didn’t get to go through with it was because he got interrupted.

        • sss says:

          He wasnt aiming to kill (and yes shooting someone was wrong but we understood why he did it, he basically said why in the show twice), he already knew she would survive – he already told Gold that, fear not she will live, just her memories are gone. and he wasnt interupted he put his hands up to see what Gold would do next, and Gold got some magic out and then the car came out from the road

          • Sammy says:

            We’re talking about FTL here. He was going to slash her and kill her with his hook. Only reason she’s not dead is because Regina walked in at just the right moment.

          • Cass says:

            He told Gold that Belle would live AFTER he saw that she was shot in the shoulder. I’d like to see the evidence that Hook is such a crack shot that he can aim at someone’s back from approximately thirty feet away with a weapon he’s never used before and KNOW that he wasn’t going to kill her.

          • Cass says:

            And in pitch-dark! I can’t believe I forgot in the dark!

        • Kara says:

          I love how you ignored my entire comment. I wasn’t excusing his behavior in any way…I just find it baffling how people get more upset by him hitting Beller than him trying to kill her. Like, really? What are your priorities? It’s a case of not seeing the forest for the trees. Also, I never used the word “only” so your quote makes no sense…

    • ej says:

      Forget the whole Hook is a bad guy argument. The CaptainSwan shippers will never buy it, and then you just get nasty responses. What I want to know, is why the majority of the questions that TVLine answers either deal directly with Hook’s and/or Emma’s potential sex lives or have to use the “hook up” line. You have SO overused that, Matt! It was funny all of like, NEVER!

      So much of Season 2’s interviews were asking different actors on the show which eligible bachelor they thought Emma would end up with. Which was useful, how? Since she ended up with NO ONE! Props to Jennifer Morrison for dodging the question by saying Henry is her true love.

      Please, for season 3, quit giving emphasis to the speculation on the sex lives of OUAT’s single characters and leave that to fanfiction. There have to be many more relevant queries submitted and comments made by people on the show to share. Spoilers that might actually turn out to be true instead of being nothing more than pandering to shippers for viewership. Given this show’s track record for romance “spoilers”, Hook is more likely to end up spending time with his metal prosthetic while Regina focuses on using her latest attempt at redemption as a cover to do something evil again and Emma’s only satisfaction will come from some magical release.

      What good are spoilers if they’re not REALLY spoilers? Give us some useful scoops like who Peter Pan is or what Neverland is like for crying out loud!

      • A Viewer says:

        I totally agree. Matt you gave us zero information. If you don’t have any real information on a show then don’t write about it. Ugh. It’s like I’m reading a silly gossip site. OUAT clearly has a very opinionated following. Stop focusing on Emma’s love life because it’s getting old and only causes the problems you see in the comment section.

    • sara says:

      That is how this show portrays ROMANCE!

    • Patti says:

      agreed. hook and regina make more sense.

  2. Maggie says:

    Loving that Rookie Blue scoop! I’m thinking the villain is either Jamie Brennan (from season 2) or John Grey (the kidnapper from season 3).

    • Bre says:

      Oh I would love it if it was Brennan! Loved his arc in season 2 theres so much they could do with his character and isn’t Luke in guns and gangs now?

    • Ash says:

      I really think that it’s either going to be Jamie Brennan or Anton Hill- after all, the latter criminal’s plot never really went anywhere after 1×02 :)

  3. Olivia says:

    So excited about the new season of Unforgettable!

  4. ihr says:

    Please, as if Emma or Regina would take someone like him seriously. Both deserve much better than that misogynistic pig.

    • Lana says:

      THIS, Colin’s comment was gross. Women aren’t mean to be used and disgarded.

      • AstridB says:

        Conlin comment was gross? I think you have a probleme separating character and actor. Colin was talking as what would Hook say, and Hook have that womanizar actitud, but is more like an act (as Emma said to him “looking after yourself and you never get hurt”)

        • A says:

          Thank you. Some seem to forget that Hook is a PIRATE and Colin’s comments were consistent with what Hook as a pirate would say!

          • Nat says:

            Various comments mentioned that they are very much aware that the’s speaking from his character’s perspective. That’s not the issue. It’s not like people reacted to it the way they did because it was Colin O’D. saying what he said. They would have reacted the same way if Hook had said suggested something like that on the show. It’s the notion of women treated like objects that many don’t like, no matter if it’s a pirate who’s saying it. Just because it fits with the stereotype of the character doesn’t mean one has to agree with it.

      • sm says:

        And what about Emma and all her one night stands that she mentioned? using people for sex is fine as long as it is understood between the involved parties that is not meant to be more than that.

      • fey says:


      • Kara says:

        So now “fun” can’t be interpreted in any way short of rape? “Fun” can be a two-way street, and if it isn’t…I worry about you. Frankly, I don’t understand your brain…I really…it baffles me. Are you a complete moron or do you just like being part of the “cool, hip” crowd that calls every man a misogynist? Let me break it to you, that’s neither cool nor hip. It only shows your ignorance, closed-mindedness, and sexist attitudes. You make me ashamed to be a woman and a feminist. JFC. Grow. Up. Educate yourself so you don”t come across as a complete idiot next time you decide to rip apart a stranger’s character.

    • Jo1 says:

      How is he a pig, ppl are willing to ship him off to anyone in this show and when Colin makes a comment its like hey dont say that lol. He didnt mean any harm by saying much, two single women on the ship isnt there. Regina he couldnt care less. I can see him and Emma bonding more, they are too alike and can read each other well

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

        Seriously. Since many are determined to parse words to a dizzying degree and take the fun out of everything, here is full disclosure: I asked Colin about Hook’s romantic options given how the season ended — him on the boat there with Regina and Emma. He said he wasn’t sure. I then cued him with the fact that Emma will probably be licking her emotional/romantic wounds, so maybe Hook will in the meantime pursue Regina. He basically echoed that idea. No fiendish twirling of the mustache by the actor who was speaking from his character’s mindset.

        • Len1 says:

          Thanks Matt for that :)

          Seriously ppl are way too quick too judge and bash!

        • ihr says:

          Do you honestly think that Regina doesn’t have her emotional wounds? She just recently been tricked to kill her mother, she was kidnapped, tortured and now lost her son? do you honestly think that she will have time for Hook? really?

          • AR1 says:

            Why are you getting hyped up, its just a comment, a harmless comment made, joking in a way!

          • Nat says:

            It’s not just about Regina in my opinion. The notion that men can joke about women like that kinda did rub me the wrong way too. Now, Regina is no Mary Sue. She can handle a guy like Hook and Emma’s badass too. But still…

        • AL says:

          Thanks for the scoop Matt…..Hook is quickly becoming one of my absolute favorites on the show (right after Emma of course) there are just so many layers to him and I think Colin is a fabulous addition to the cast…it’s sad that you had to disclose that you prompted it, I thought it was pretty obvious.

          • Len1 says:

            I agree, it was pretty obvious – Colin was asked a question and he answered in a who knows way… making a harmless response!
            Hook is one of my faves, even i can get a harmless joke and wording of what was said. Andd yeah i admit it aloud i ship Hook-Emma. coz i see a potential – two lost souls, two broken souls, a man who has read her well, where no one else ever has done, and she looks past as seeing him just as Hook. And he came back to her to be a part of something in the finale.

        • Loki says:

          Don’t let the rabid fan base bother you, Matt.
          It was pretty clear that Colin was speaking from Hook’s perspective.

        • Tara says:

          I don’t understand shippers. They get upset by the smallest thing regarding one (usually out of context quote) an actor/writer etc says. Sometimes the actor/writer could be having a laugh, or maybe it’s just their perception in that moment of the characters it concerns, but shippers/fans just kick up a storm anyway and start attacking each other. I love what Colin said regarding Regina/Emma. As a CS shipper it doesn’t bother me, I take it as a good sign, so don’t understand how there is drama from that. Plus, I always enjoy his perspectives on his character and those of his fellow actors around him.

        • Babybop says:

          “Fiendish twirling of the mustache”. Tee-hee. Love it.

        • Radha says:

          Thank Heaven you have sense. I was sitting here with my mouth open at all the harsh words being spewed.

      • sara says:

        Read each other well. lol

    • A says:

      imo to say that Regina deserves better than Hook or anyone is ridiculous. Regina is still an evil woman and is more evil than Hook and has done more terrible things than he ever has (e.g., the village that she killed; letting her mother kill Snow’s innocent Nanny, tricking Hook to get the gem and leaving him to die, killing Greg’s father, destroying the beans, the list goes on). She doesn’t deserve better than anyone until she completely becomes a better person herself which she still hasn’t fully achieved. The whole reason Henry was kidnapped and they’re off to Neverland was because she tried to destroy Storybrook and everyone in it. She’s the one who set everything in motion with her gem.

      • AR says:

        Atleast with Hook, he is much more aware of what revenge would of brought to him, he even told Regina, but she was still hellbent on killing everyone. As i said Hook is much more of aware of the empitiness it will bring and also what life will be like, he had the capacity to let go, coz his revenge was never about power or being in control, it was always about love, venging his love. and yeah anybody who sees their lover cruelling being murdered would want revenge, jeez in real life if anyone if slapped our loved ones, we would rush up and feel angry and hell bent on making them pay in a way

      • Nat says:

        That sounds very problematic to me. So someone who has done evil deeds (doesn’t matter to me who we’re talking about, applies to enough people on the show) doesn’t deserve someone who cares about them, treats them well and as more than just a way to keep the bed warm at night? Considering that many of the characters also have a background of feeling unworthy of love and compassion and in some cases they’ve already been treated as second-best I think it would be highly problematic for them to enter a relationship that only adds to that. That’s what many comments are referring to when they say Regina deserves better, IMO.

        • A says:

          So if what you are saying about how just because you’ve done evil doesn’t mean you don’t deserve someone who cares for you is true, then why is it that many say that Regina deserves better than Hook but Hook doesn’t deserve better than Regina?

          • Nat says:

            I can’t speak for “many”, I can only speak for myself. And the way I see it people got upset because they thought it was being suggested that it would be fine for Regina to be used as a bed warmer or for Hook to just jump back and forth between two women. I think that’s problematic in general because no one should be treated that way. This would, technically, therefore very much include Hook, but he obviously wasn’t the one who would be used and treated like someone’s second-best in the scenario we’re discussing here.

      • Jesse says:

        I’ll never forgive her for raping the Huntsman.

    • Name That Tune says:

      Honestly, the happy ending for Emma and Henry is to be reunited with NeaL Hook is a work in progress.
      As far as Rumple goes, he’s on a path of redemption.. He will be undone as the seer promised. I’m guessing “undone” means he loses his powers to save Henry and returns to Belle to live happily ever after. With the blessing Of Neal.
      If there is a romantic partner for Hook it’s Regina or Wendy or someone we haven’t met yet. Regina still is on the path to redemption so we don’t know how that’s going to turn out.

      • jik says:

        Neal has never chosen Emma, or fought for her, or ever went out in the world to find her, and his lame sorry was coz he has felt guilty, and he wanted the guilt to go (lets be honest its not like he ever wanted to go and find her to even say sorry or to see how she is) andcoz Emma was still going on about Tamara, he was still choosing Tamara. How the heck can i root for a guy like Neal, who not only puts her down, like he says he never believed in her lie detector skills, totally never was in doubt that she could be telling the truth, and mock hers. And this is the guy i CANT root for.

        • Nelly says:

          You CS fans are so delusional. And you always trash Neal to make your ship look good. Neal let himself go so Emma could be with Henry. He was incredible selfless. But I guess you forget about all the great things he has done and only care about the bad. He isn’t perfect.
          And nobody believes in Emma’s lie detector. Not even her parents so that’s incredible stupid to complain about.

          • fey says:

            We can’t be delusional if our arguments are actually stuff that really happened. Neal letting himself go is for Henry, not Emma so jik’s arguments still hold true that Neal already chose to not be with Emma. AAAAND….Actually Hook believes in Emma’s lie detector. When Emma chained him up he was “Emma, look at me have I told you a lie?” or did you conveniently forget that?

          • Name That Tune says:

            But you forget that the producers have always said the show is about family. Henry wants to be in FTL with Emma and Neal. Emma and Neal were separated by fate and Emma’s destiny as the savior . Clearly August wanted to see them get back together.
            Hook’s destiny is with someone else. I don’t see the chemistry between Emma and Hook other than she can whip his a** in a fight.

        • Cass says:

          I’m no fan of Neal, but he doesn’t always put her down. Remember “you always find what you’re looking for”? And THAT is a skill that Emma prides herself on, not the “lie detector” which she usually uses to intimidate kids and is on the fritz as often as not.

    • cas says:

      Not sure Regina does. Love her sometimes, but if we are being realistic, I mean being the evil queen and all, doubt she deserves a stand up kind of man. I believe she killed her own father for power.

  5. patrick says:

    Hard to believe Burden of Proof was eliminated. WE enjoyed well written and acted out story lines.. A very good ensemble cast. What did I miss..?

  6. Oh, so excited that my NCIS/McGee question got answered! Thank you. And I can’t wait to meet McGee’s Delilah in Season 11…..it’s time someone else besides Palmer had some loving since they are taking their sweet time with Tony and Ziva. :-)

    • lyn says:

      My fondest hope is that they bring in Tea Leoni as a love interest for Gibbs.

    • JA says:

      Does this mean I have to give up hope of a McGee/Abby more-than-friendship? I always thought they’d be good together and they’ve hinted at it over the years.

      • TVDIVA says:

        I believe if NCIS ever ends, it will be with a McAbby wedding, with Gibbs giving the bride away, Tony as best man and Ziva as maid of honor.

  7. Louise says:

    Okay, I guess Colin was trying to channel his inner pirate, but that’s just gross. Use one for sex until the other becomes available? Yeah, no thanks. I’d rather see Regina and Emma both kick him to the curb if he makes a pass at them than something that comes even close to what the actor is suggesting.

    Based on what we’ve seen of Hook up until now they’re both too good for him anyway. And they’re both hurting and nursing the wounds of having lost people they loved again this season and that’s not even counting Henry. I say give the girls a break and keep the pirate away from them. I’d like to see more of Emma with her family and after the finale maybe Emma and Regina can start afresh, find some common ground for maybe a future friendship and figure out how to rescue Henry together.

    • Paulie says:

      This, please-

    • AR says:

      Regina couldnt care less about Emma and the charmings as long as it gets her what she wants, her and Henry thats it, she was willing to kill them all for it to happen, the woman attempts to kill them all probably each episode….

      • Louise says:

        Do you actually watch the show?

        • AR says:

          I do, and i was talking about episodes before, which is what Regina was doing and yes i do know where turning point has come in the finale.

      • Nat says:

        Much of that is no longer true and the writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis made a point of stressing that Regina and Emma’s relationship officially moved to a new place in the season finale.

        • Len1 says:

          All of the relationship/family relations did in the finale to be honest

          • Nat says:

            True. My point was more about what the original poster said about the Regina and Emma dynamic. Way too simplistic in my opinion.

    • Dora says:

      Well obviously you hate most male pairings for Emma , so I suggest you watch another show, like the L word. They have really cool ships there that actually happen.

  8. lily says:

    Just keep Hook away from both Emma and Regina.

  9. Kathy says:

    Love the fact that McGee is getting a girlfriend. I love the comedy of Palmer and McGee BUT if Cote dePablo does not sign her contract I will be an occasional viewer.

  10. M. says:

    I’m waiting for the Rizzles-shippers to go crazy about THAT kind of spoiler for “Rizzoli & Isles” ;)

    • Lady K says:

      Count me as one of those who is THRILLED by Angie Harmon’s scoop on Casey! I LOVE Casey and think Jane and Casey have FANTASTIC chemistry! I hope we get to see a LOT of Chris Vance this season on R&I!! Jane and Casey need to keep up with the Skype conversations! Would love to see Rizzoli give Casey a daily or weekly rundown on her life….

      • I found her! I found that one person who actually ships Jane and Casey! I thought you were a myth :D

      • Chicago Dan says:

        Agreed. Too often the Jane character came across as cold and aloof – even when she hooked up with the FBI guy. However, the introduction of Casey brought a whole new dimension to Jane and, frankly, to Harmon’s acting. Just don’t over do it!

      • Thanh says:

        I think Jane and Casey are a good couple. They have pretty good chemistry too imo. I like them much, much better than Jane and that FBI guy. I hated him. It might be the acting that I don’t like. He’s now on Revolution, but I see the same kind of half-assed, droopy, bland affect (psych term), facial expressions. Regarding Jane and Casey, I hope they make a long distance relationship work. Or at least keep him as an option for future episodes, so that Jane can have a romantic life in the meantime. Girl has like no dating prospects!

  11. HookedQueen (Hook & Regina) …hot & sexy…both are evil (Yeah Regina is more…but)…they lost their lovers the same way (Rumpel and Cora ripped and crushed the hearts of their lovers)

    • Louise says:

      That’s the brilliant Emma and Neal shipper two-birds-with-one-stone logic, isn’t it?

    • AR says:

      Bad combo, coz each of them dont better each person, why do you think Rumbelle works and Cora-Rumpel didnt, cos Belle brings out Rumpel best self (whatever that is in his pov) which i feel Emma will do with Hook, and also coz Hook himself can do that.
      Regina needs someone who can do that as well.

      • Cass says:

        If Hook can bring out his own best self, why does he need Emma? And why can’t he then do it for Regina? What Regina needs is to want to find her own best self.

      • sara says:

        HAHAHAH. Belle brings out the “best” in Rumple. I love it. Haven’t had a good laugh in a while, thanks.

  12. Lisa says:

    Tom shouldn’t have won for SMASH! Derek did all the choreography and staging and basically handed a ready made production over to Tom. Tom made some changes to try and make it his own but Bombshell wouldn’t have been Bombshell without Derek!

  13. Lysh says:

    I ship Captain Swan and I don’t even know why. There are many reasons it’s wrong/weird. Either way, if Hook is really ready to move on from revenge, Emma is really the best shot at a friend he’s got out of everyone else on that ship. And maybe friendship is where it starts.

  14. Ian says:

    Yeah, I can understand (and am all for) the desire to get Hook out of some of that leather and to see him in action a bit, but why do people have to be so relationship crazy? It doesn’t feel all that appropriate or believable for them to go there with him with either Emma or Regina quite frankly. They’d be making it happen for the sake of it, and all I want is for them to tell great stories out of this universe.

  15. ARRO says:

    Hook doesnt even like Regina lol… they both tolerate each other for the sake of it!

    Atleast with Emma, there is a understanding and care. Connection!!!

    • Mike R. says:

      When has Emma ever cared for Hook? Seems more like tolerating for that pair as well.

      • Lysh says:

        She asked Anton to let him free after she left. She made sure Hook had a private hospital room to hide him from Gold. She left with Gold after he said he would just go after Hook if Emma didn’t go to NY with him. She may not completely trust Hook, but she does care, especially compared to everyone else who doesn’t seem to care about him.

        • Cass says:

          Can you honestly say that Emma would not have done those basic human kindnesses for anyone? This is a woman who rescued her worst enemy from a burning building–of course she’s not going to let Gold just kill the guy in the hospital. And she left Storybrooke with Gold because she owed him the favor, not because of Hook. Protecting Hook was GOLD’s reason for going at that time, not hers.

    • Nelly says:

      Emma couldn’t care less about her. People can ship all they want but last season nothing indicated that.

  16. jo says:

    Begins to be a sick family. Hook slept with Milah,made ​​sexual innuendos to Snow in front of her Husband & now wants Emma? (all Henry’s family women)
    Hook wants revenge on Bae or wants revenge on Rumpel?…
    I’m nauseous just thinking about it

  17. A says:

    Of course Hook would say something like that because he’s a damn PIRATE!! This show is NOT reality. It’s a show about “fairytale” characters. He is a VILLAIN. He’s not going to be the goody-two shoes like Charming that everyone seems to want to see.
    I’m looking forward to some Hook/Emma or Hook/Regina action should they decide to go either route. It would be way more entertaining and interesting than any scene with Snow and Charming together.
    It amazes me how hypocritical some people can be. They approve of and support Rumple and continue to support a relationship between him and Belle, yet Hook is simply unforgivable and is just awful. Rumple is by far way worse than Hook will ever be!

    • jo says:

      I dont support Rumple …love Robert Carlyle as actor …and think he make a great Rumpel/Gold character…but dont support Rumple …

  18. suzi says:

    Yikes. Unpleasant comments from the OUAT actor. Suddenly I don’t want him with any of the OUAT women. And I agree with the person who said they don’t want OUAT to become only about romantic relationships.

    • AR says:

      Jeez he was joking, in a fun way lol – chill out

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:


        • Len1 says:

          It certainly does! I find in the OUAT fandom, the mind and bashing is boggling to be honest. Refuse to see and understand stuff

        • A says:

          Thank you, Matt! Some people, I just don’t know what to think. This is exactly like on Tuesday when Adam Levine made the in-the-moment comment “I hate this country” after two of his contestants were eliminated and people went nuts for no reason. It really does boggle the mind!

        • Also possible that women, rather than two dudes, have a better handle on what is or isn’t misogynistic, Matt.

          • Suddenly says:

            Well Matt is the one that interviewed Colin and I don’t think he’d publish much less defend the comment if he felt in any way that it was misogynistic. I don’t know Colin but have heard he is one of the nicest most giving guys you could meet – not to mention a devoted husband.

          • Being a ‘nice guy’ isn’t a magical shield against accidentally saying things that treat women like objects, just there for the male character’s use. Luckily Emma and Regina are series leads, so if anyone is going to use another character and dump them, it should be for them to use Very Handsome Prop Hook and not the other way around.

          • Suddenly says:

            So “Off with his balls!” huh Lola? As far as “series leads” go you should know that indeed Colin is a full time cast member and the just released cover art for the 2nd season DVD features his picture first in the cast shots across the top. Good God it’s a fantasy TV show nothing else. And at the least you should take solace in the fact that Hook has gotten knocked out in almost every episode he’s been in.

          • CC says:

            First of all, to be VERY nice, please quit trying to speak for all women, you are NOT doing a very good job.

            As a woman, I didn’t find the comment misogynistic at all. In fact, as a woman who is equal to ANY man, I have participated in relationships where it was a lot more for sex than anything else on my side. I don’t consider myself sexist for that. As long as Hook isn’t promising her ‘happily ever after’ I don’t see where it would be a problem for them to sleep together even if he is pining after another woman.

          • Malu says:

            Seriously lola, having a vagina doesn’t give you the privilege to point fingers and yell misogynistic at others. Me and my vagina don’t agree with you. The comment was clearly a way to tease fans about possibility, and the actor reply in a way that would leave room for it, Nothing more.

  19. Alichat says:

    Re: Major Crimes……why would the Deputy DA only be learning of Rusty’s living arrangements during trial prep? That seems a little odd.

  20. Jo1 says:

    Hook has let go off his revenge, Hook and Milah happened 300 yrs ago, he made a comment to Snow to rile Charming up, thats it – do you guys not watch the scenes probably or understand why he did that. Charming was right in front of him – he knew he was going to rile him up.

    • jo says:

      Hook and Milah happened 300 yrs ago…and Bae still be Milah’s son and is alive and grew up without a mother because she fled with her lover Hook. …forget? of course not!

      • K1 says:

        And the man did the same himself over and over again -refused a home with Hook and then abandoned Emma, promised a home and family
        I guess thats Hook’s fault as well :rollseyes:

        • jo says:

          sorry if I not see the same like you…

          For me…Hook slept with Henr’s grandmother Milah, Harassed henry’s grandmother Snow, and wants to sleep with Henry’s mom Emma…all Henry family women…wow…wow…sick

        • jo says:

          If Emma did not even stay with Bae. I’d rather she did not stay with Hook too…cause it’s sick…all Henry’s family women….it’s to much

          • Emma can date who she wants. Bae, Mad hatter, Archie, a new characte..r. But I agree, Hook begins to have a great and sickening ritual with Henry’s family women…hate it…so I root for Regina/Hook

      • A says:

        It is not Hook’s fault that Milah made the choice to abandon her son and her husband for Hook.

        • AL says:

          but Regina is as much Henry’s family as Milah or Emma…for the record I could care less that Hook was with Milah 300 yrs ago…if he and Emma fall in love and she (the character) doesn’t care then the fans shouldn’t either, I for one would actually welcome it my tv may have melted when “Tallahassee” was on during their scenes

          • Regina has no blood connection with Henry. Regina is only adoptive mother…lol…I like Colic as Hook…bt dont like Hook/Emma sorry

          • lyn says:

            If Regina is Rumpel’s daughter by Cora, she’s a half sister to Baelfire and a Henry’s aunt.

          • Cass says:

            Kitsowitz have confirmed that Rumpel is not Regina’s father. At least until they change their minds, LOL. Really, I’d like to see Hook and Regina together, but if you need an argument against them, I’m surprised that no one has brought up the possibility that he was banging her mom for 28 years…

          • A says:

            @Cass where is this evidence that he banged her mom?

          • Cass says:

            A–There’s zero evidence for it. That’s why I used the word “possibility,” not “probability” or “likelihood” or “certainty.” I don’t think it happened–I think Cora didn’t have much in the way of sexual drives after she tore out her heart–but the fact is that they were each other’s only companion for twenty-eight years, and let’s face it, there are plenty of items on the CS/Hook party line with less evidence than that.

    Hey Matt, thanks for the scoop – sorry about the bashing comments, and that you needed the feel to comment on it, but thumbs up :) even i recognised Colin was doing his usually who knows thing he does and in a harmless way

    I am a Hook/Emma shipper and i am not gonna list out reasons and potential why i like them – its on the show to see and feel thats all i can say!, all i see is WAITING FOR EMMA!!!

  26. Roro says:

    Thanks Matty mate.
    Waiting for Emma! Yes! Though we all know Hook is the man who can wait lol, he has experience in that lol.
    Captain Swan shipper!!! :)

  27. SolLen says:

    Hook-Emma thats all i see, And can understand, I dont see Hook and Regina at all, the scenes and narrative do not suggest that. Look at how Emma and Hook scenes are done and what they understand about each other, and why,

  28. ZZZ1 says:

    Hey, any revenge scoop – i want to know what will happen with Jack-Emily?

      lol why are you lowering your hopes dear? I don’t want to be disappointed too because I really really reaaaalllly LOOOOOVE hook and emma but I can’t stop expecting a wonderful journey for them.

    Can we just change Hook’s outfit please? He’s the only one that’s not wearing street clothes. Ha ha.

  32. giftofamber says:

    Colin’s comments were both racist (Latina women are only for sex, but white women are for a real relationship) and misogynistic. I want his character as far away from any woman on OUAT as possible, and before these comments, I just wanted him away from Regina & Emma..

    • A says:

      So now he’s a racist too? Get over yourself and stop trying to make something out of nothing.

    • Lysh says:

      WOW, that is not what he said at all. I’m surprised you didn’t call him homophobic, too. The OUAT fandom is so quick to judge every little thing an actor says. Calm down.

    • Bre says:

      Bahaha good lord….

    • CC says:

      Honestly, this has got to be the most reaching comment yet :( I actually would call this comment racist, just because a white guy said it, you are assuming he meant it had something to do with her race/ethnicity. You should be ashamed of yourself…

      • giftofamber says:

        Putting your head in the sand and pretending that OUAT doesn’t have a race problem doesn’t mean it isn’t there. If anything, the cast should take some sensitivity training and learn how their comments come across. I don’t want to hear about the strong lead female protagonists being referred to as pieces of meat to be “used” by men. I’d expect this idiocy from his character (you know, the one who thought it was perfectly acceptable to HIT Belle), but to hear it from the actor makes it far worse.

        • Tori says:

          Wow, I like how the claims that you’re making actually don’t make sense. Racist? Um, I’m pretty sure Regina Mills ISN’T a Latina, Lana Parrilla is, so how does that come across as racist? Did he say anything about Lana? Colin is sexist? Nope! There was nothing sexist in this comment. Matt was just asking if Hook would have any possible love interest. Colin cannot give a specific answer as to who exactly, seriously that’s just common knowledge that actors/actresses can’t give out specific information. Not only that this interview was given at the end of season 2 filming. So guess what, he probably doesn’t even know yet!! Heck, Adam and Eddy probably haven’t even decided yet! He gave out an answer that was prompted by the interviewer and was not meant in any way of ill-will. Seems like you really lack in the intelligence department. Really, just get over yourself.

          • pb&j says:

            Actually you can’t say for sure that Regina isn’t Latina. Even her father Henry is played by a Latino, so it could also be implied that Regina is part Latina or something. You can’t tell by just the name.
            Another thing, while the original poster was extreme in his/her post, they do bring up a very valid point. This being the lack of people of color. While this really has nohing to do Colin’s comments and more of the show in general. There are very few minoriy characters on the show. And of the few that are there are either extremely irrelevant, or evil. Though this can be attributed to the fact that most original fairy tale characters were caucasian.
            Also, while I’m sure Colin meant no harm, and was just answering like Hook would answer, I think it’s just the word “fun” that threw people off. I can see how people would think that’s misogynistic. It’s like using Regina for sex while Hook waits for Emma to get over her emotional baggage. Though I’m sure this won’t happen as it’s a family show lol! Like what kind of message would that send!

          • A says:

            @pb&j “Though I’m sure this won’t happen as it’s a family show lol! Like what kind of message would that send!”

            Considering the consistent adult content/themes of this show, imo people really need to stop claiming this show is a “family” show because it clearly isn’t and shouldn’t be.

          • Louise says:

            Actually, Regina IS Latina. Lana Parrilla has stated in interviews that she has talked to the writers about this and they decided together that Regina/Evil Queen does have that background and if you remember “The Miller’s Daughter” it’s the family on her father’s side that has Latin roots and they actually were careful to cast Latin actors for both her grandfather and the younger version of her father (Tony Perez, who plays the older Henry is Latin too).
            That’s just to clear this up to. I’m not getting into the racism argument.

          • sara says:

            What? This is a show that has HOW many instances of rape, even more of murder, tons of abuse between romantic partners and parents/children, forced marriage, and people having consensual sex is what would make it NOT FAMILY? WOW.

          • pb&j says:

            @A This show is PG, and it’s one of the most family-friendly shows on ABC. However this is by no means a bad thing. Yes it deals with mature themes, but in a family-friendly way. This show is no Game of thrones or Walking dead. For example there have been no obvious sex scenes. The almost one with Snow and Charming was played off as a joke when Emma walked in on them and being grossed out. The main theme of this show has always been family. Everyone is looking for family.
            The show has always sent a good message. If Hook sleeps with Regina while he’s supposed to be “waiting” for Emma what kind of message does that send? Even worse if Emma actually agrees to be with him as well. It shows Hook would have no respect for either Regina or Emma, and it would make independent ladies like Emma and Regina look like fools. The only way I could see this happening is if both Emma and Regina reject him.

          • pb&j says:

            @sara Highly exaggerated, but yes, and the people who committed those acts have payed their price or redeemed themselves from it, sending a good message towards the viewers. It also shows that these acts are wrong. And what was the instance of child abuse and forced marriage? I can’t recal that.
            Having casual sex is perfectly okay in the show. This is not what would make it un family-friendly. In fact there have been implied instances of casual sex already. What would send a bad message is the fact that Hook is “waiting” for Emma, but still has sex with Regina anyways. It’s like well he couldn’t keep it in his pants and actually waited for Emma while she was mourning. If he really had any true feelings for her that is what he should do. This is what sends a bad message to everyone all around. It makes Hook look like a sleezbag and Emma and Regina look like fools if they actually go along with it. If such a thing does happen the only way I could see it ending is if both Emma and Regina reject him. That would show how the actions are wrong and the character payed their price.

          • sara says:

            @sara lol. no they haven’t. Rumple hasn’t faced any consequences. Regina hasn’t faced all that many either. Snow’s only consequence of murdering someone is that she cried for two days before her husband cheered her up.
            But let’s just say that Rumple murdering everyone who came into contact with Bae is abuse. And Regina being forced into a non-consensual marriage is forced marriage. So there’s abuse from Rumple to Bae, Cora to Regina, Leopold to Regina, Emma and Neal (since she was way underage and he is much, much older), etc.

        • A says:

It was just annoying and inappropriate seeing that commenter dismiss an actor that he/she doesn’t know as a racist and dismissing an entire cast as insensitive. It felt like the commenter is just trying to start problems and bad mouth hard-working actors.

        • CC says:

          Men use women and women use men, that is life (as another poster mentioned above, Emma said that she only did one night stands and MM had a one-nighter with Whale and Whale apparently has had sex with half of Storybrook). So do they all consider members of the opposite sex as ‘pieces of meat to be used’ or is it only the guys and it’s okay for the women??

          Hook hit Belle and Emma hit the bail jumper. Same action, but since Emma is a woman and hit a man, apparently Hook’s the bad person and Emma is a bad-ass.

          You, unfortunately, only seem to see things based on your own bias.

          • Alice says:

            Emma hit a criminal who was running away. Hook hit a shackled prisoner who had no way of defending herself, just because he deemed her “useless”. Nice try, but those situations are nowhere near the same.

          • AstridB says:

            Don’t forget Regina. The poor victim Regina the evil pirate want to get advantage from. The same Regina that, as you may remember, used to have Graham as her sex toy. How is that different of Hook trying to seduce Regina just for sex? Oh, right, the difference is that Regina have a choice, not as Graham who was control by her.

            BTW, I have nothing against Regina, I love her. I just hate double standards from the Oncers.

        • hahaha says:

          stop trying to sound smart. you obviously aren’t if you thought that Colin wasn’t speaking as HOOK.

    • Good lord says:

      What is wrong you!!!! you being rather cruel and silly. Shame on you!

    • hahaha says:

      WHAAAAAT??? First of all, where’d the racist thing even come from????? WTF girl, all your comments make me feel worried about what’s going on in your head

    • cas says:

      Giftofamber obviously read something completely different.

    • AstridB says:

      Seriusly? Racist, where? I think you’re the racist, because you’re asuming that he just want to “have fun” with Regina because Lana is hispanic.
      Do you think that if Regina would be white, and Emma japanese, hispanic, indian, the comment would be any differente? I don’t think so.

      He’ll wait for Emma because he has interest on her, but on the middle time, he, Hook, as a womanizar seductive men, will try to seduce every femele person in his way.

      • Louise says:

        I find it so amazing that you guys actually defend this and pass it off as him being a “womanizer”. As if it’s actually a positive quality to his character or something.
        Like someone said above: Don’t you think it shows a lack of respect towards BOTH women? His feelings for the one he’s supposedly waiting for can’t be all that if he’s fine trying to seduce other women along the way and I think it’s fairly obvious he has little to no respect for those other women either.
        I’m no raging feminist, but as a woman I, personally, think we all deserve more than that from men.

        • AstridB says:

          And when I said it was a positive quality? It’s just part of his character. Characters aren’t perfect, that’s what makes a good character. The show dosn’t respect women? Why? Because they have a womanizer character? That makes no sense. It like saying that the show is pro murdered because there are chacarters that kill a lot of people.

    • Dora says:

      you are a racist for even bringing this up. No one even thinks about that. And by the way, Lana Parilla may be Latina, but her character isn’t . She is not playing a Latina on the show, and just the fact that you suggest that Latina actresses are only good for portraying Latino Characters is racist and completely insulting.

      • Louise says:

        Again: Regina is very much a Latina, via her father’s side. The show went out of their way to cast Latin actors for both young and elderly Henry and Regina’s grandfather. It has also been established in interviews that the actress playing Regina, Lana Parrilla, and the show’s writers had conversations about this before and had agreed that Regina has a Latin background. Regina = Latina is very much canon.

  33. SJ says:

    Thanks for getting to my question, Matt! I’m saddened by the fact that it’s only 13 episodes for Suburgatory. The ratings were OK, it was ABC’s 3rd highest rated sitcom, but I guess the network really isn’t behind the show.

    So assuming it premieres in Jan/Feb, after a 9-10 month layover with no repeats it will end the season with 57 episodes, which is exactly the number of episodes Happy endings had at the end of this season. Except no one will be picking Suburgatory up once ABC cancels it. So sad. I really love the show.

  34. Katherine says:

    I’m not a Hook or Neal shipper but both ships are insane. The lengths you all go to in order to “discredit” the other ship is ridiculous. And it ruins the comment sections for everyone else. Relax. It’s just a TV show….

    • Fran says:

      I agree, it gets absolutely ridiculous.

    • Addie says:

      Ugh yes. It’s so ridiculous and stupid. I thought Regina/Emma shippers were bad last year, but the Emma/Hook and Emma/Neal people are definitely catching up. Even the Rumple/Belle people seemed to have cooled down a little.

    • Jesse says:

      You said it. These “shipper wars” show how much immaturity is in this fandom. Swan Queen, Captain Swan, and SwanFire shippers attacking each other..I think I just may stay out of this fandom next season.

    • Steph says:

      I’m a shipper and I TOTALLY AGREE. The shippers in this post (and in lots of other posts) act so goddamn childish and ridiculous. They need to step away from their computers and get at least a fraction of a life.

    • Gizmo says:

      Absolutely true. Have any of you remembered Robin Hood? I doubt he is totally out of the picture. That said, children go to bed!

    • Louise says:

      I can relate. I’m not crazy about either as well. I think the difference is that shippers are usually “louder” beause they’re always trying to convince others and the writers of their cause, but I think among the general viewers many are really not that passionate about all that.

    • sara says:

      Pretty much every ship with Emma has crazies.

  35. Hectic says:

    I am all for Emma and Hook, i think it makes sense seeing the kind of ppl they are and shaped up to be, and what we see in their scenes and why. the parallel, the connection, the kindred feeling, the staring scenes, the understanding of each other. Him choosing her in some capacity to a situation, he has done it twice now.

  36. sss says:


  37. EH says:

    EMMA-HOOK thats all i say! wait for you and choose/chose you!

  38. Sid says:

    Yes, a man should wait for Emma, choose her and fight for her. Because she is worth figthing for and waiting for and to be put first. You need all these things in a couple and a love story, and also a connection and understanding each other. I see that in Hook-Emma. Thats why they appeal to me, and hopefully be the couple.

  39. Jean says:

    Thank you for the Jane and Casey scoop! Love them and can’t wait for the premiere.

    I don’t watch Once Upon at all but why is that fandom so psycho lol? Thought I stumbled in on a crazy fan board for a second.

  40. Random Viewer says:

    I really hope Hook’s story arc ends after season 3. Hook as a character bores me. It’s sad how Red’s storyline was pushed aside for most of the season to give Hook more screen time. I get that this is a show about love and romance but can it be about friendship too? Isn’t it also about family? I hope season 3 is about Rumple, Regina and the Charmings trying to work together despite their past and not about who Hook is going to sleep with. Shouldn’t Emma and Regina be focused on finding Henry?

    • fey says:

      I think Hook’s storyline is the most interesting and the best thing that has happened to season 2. If anything, it is what saved season 2. Don’t let one interview or the shipping wars ruin your perception of Hook’s character. His storyline is ultimately about finding redemption.

      • sara says:

        It’s really not. And about redemption? So is EVERYONE ELSE’S

        • fey says:

          yeah okay, so is everyone else’s but in VARIED WAYS. They are all damaged in different ways and TO ME Hook’s storyline is the most interesting

    • Louise says:

      I miss Red too. :( It’s sad that Meghan left the show because the writers cancelled all her stories for season 2 and she didn’t have anything to do anymore. But from Meghan’s POV it’s very understandable and I’m happy for her that she quickly found a new show where she is even the female lead. But I’ll miss her character so much. She was one of my favorites and I was so happy when they announced they made her a series regular last season…

      • AstridB says:

        She left because got an important role in another TV show. She didn’t left because her story was cancelled, the story was reduce because she left. Anyway, they said they would find a way to keep Red in the show, just not as a regular.

        • Louise says:

          No, I think you missed the interview with Meghan Ory in which she discussed why she left the show. She explained it very well. The writers had plans for more stories with Red (she and David were meant to have more story in Storybrooke fore examples), but then they got the rights for Peter Pan and started rewriting the season on the spot. They didn’t tell her about this though until she came to them and then they told her they didn’t know what to do with her character anymore because it was now more important for them to set up the Neverland story and they couldn’t fit her in. That’s when she started looking for other projects and she then got to audition for “Intelligence” (her new show) and eventually got hte part.

          • JC says:

            Urgh. OK, that actually explains a lot about the season. I’m not against the Neverland arc on principle, but there was a lot about this season that just didn’t flow very well, and threads that seemed to be set up for something that were just dropped. :(

            I wish they’d found a way to work Ruby/Red in more – she was one of my favorites. (And Meghan Ory’s the reason I’ll be giving Intelligence a try when it airs). I hope we get to see her more than just a little bit next season. It would have been great to see her and Belle taking care of the town together.

    • Cass says:

      The biggest weakness of S2 was how relationships were sacrificed for ~~!~~ACTION~~!~~ And not only friendships like Red/Snow and Red/Belle, but the show’s real romances (Rumbelle, Snowing), potential romances (Whale/Ruby, Mulan/Aurora), and family relationships. It’s sad that it took 21 episodes for Emma and Charming to have a father/daughter moment. I really doubt that a season 3 that emphasizes more action and Hook’s “charm” is going to gain back all the lost viewers, but what do I know?

      • sara says:

        Less Rumbelle and Snowing was one of the highlights for me.

        • Cass says:

          Your personal preferences for relationships aside, can you deny that there was more action and less character? I mentioned all those relationships because I DID miss them, very much, but you could easily swap in Emma/Regina, Emma/Henry, Rumple/Neal, MM/Team 7. The only character stories that got any development were Snow/Emma (and that only in the first half of the season), and Regina/Henry/Cora.

          • sara says:

            I actually felt the opposite, That Regina/Henry/Cora and Snow/Emma didn’t get ANY development when they should have. Most of it was just standing beside each other counting as ‘together’. And I wouldn’t say for ‘action’ either. I’d say to force the idea of Neverland and hurry along the other storylines in order to MAKE them fit

        • A says:

          I seem to be agreeing with pretty much everything you’re saying @sara. Any time there is less of those two couples (especially Charming), the happier I am.

    • Dora says:

      if your 5 lines post describing what season 3 should be about managed to put me to sleep, imagine what the actual season would do to the audience. Please leave the writing to people who actually do this for a living

      • Seriously? says:

        Well the people writing for this show this pass season didn’t do a great great job. Season two was a mess compared to season one which probably partly the reason for the 22% drop in viewership overall this season. So season two put people to sleep. Are you a Hook fan? I think the original post was manly trying to say what many have felt but trying to be nice about it. Stop bringing in more characters and focus on the ones you already have. This show has lost at least one good actor each season to another show. Who is going to leave next season because they have written in yet another character? I hope it’s Hook.

      • Ugh says:

        Dora all your post put me to sleep.

  41. xx says:

    Ugh, not up for watching Jane turn back into a caricature of a teenager. Having Casey around might be even worse than having Dean around.

  42. Addie says:

    I don’t know Matt, I can think of one guy in Storybrooke who wouldn’t go for Emma ;D. Of course if that guy wants to punch more of her potential romantic interests, that’s fine by me! I think Neal is probably next in line for a punch?

  43. I am a CS shipper through and through, and I have never said that what Neal did for Emma and Henry wasn’t selfless, but that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t had plenty of moments of being a condescending jerk to her. Plus your forgetting that Hook did believe in her lie detector remember when she left him on the beanstalk he said “Emma, look at me. Have I told you a lie?” he was willing to put his faith in her ability, the one thing that she thinks she is good. The reason we complain about that is because it’s her thing she believes it so that makes it important to her and I think that it is better to have someone who thinks that it is relevant too. Both Hook and Neal have done good and bad thing when it comes to Emma and in general but the main difference between the two is that Hook has shown that he believes in her while Neal hasn’t.

  44. A.B. says:

    As to Captain Hook he should be with neither Emma or Regina. I would rather see him with someone else maybe someone not shown yet. If they would write in Ariel then Hook could be her Prince Eric(I think that he was Little Mermaid). Pirate/Mermaid and Prince Eric/Ariel. Maybe…. But anyway things don’t look good for him anyways because he is the red shirt(Star Trek reference for those wondering, red shirt always gets killed). Look at that boat and think about who they can live without and continue the show for another 2 or 3 seasons. Not Emma she is the main star(what the whole show is based around), not Snow and Charming they balance out the evil, not Regina she is the main evil villain and killing off Rumple will just be suicide for the show. Nope does not look good for Hook.

  45. Gilda says:

    Regina and Hook are a lot more compatible. Perhaps not healthy, but still.

    • fey says:

      and what message would that bring to the viewers then? I think the Hook/Emma relationship has a very great potential for being a wonderful and beautiful love story since they are both learning to love again and learning to overcome their fears and other issues. Plus, they complement each other well, they bring out things in each other that no one else can. Plus, they make a good team.

    • Cass says:

      Why wouldn’t it be healthy? If they are both trying to change, why can’t they do it together? (And if one of them doesn’t really want to change, why can’t the other inspire him/her?) They need to learn to love again much more than Emma does (she already loves her son, parents, friends, and by her own words, Neal). And let’s face it, no one is ever going to understand either Hook or Regina like the other (the idea that Emma could comprehend the kind of hate that pursues revenge across worlds and centuries is laughable–how can anyone who watches the show think that of her?). And I have no objections to them having “fun” if it’s mutual fun. And if it’s not mutual, boy would I not like to be Hook if Regina gets dumped.

  46. Denny says:

    Don’t get your hopes up too much NCIS fans. No one on NCIS gets to be happy. No one.

  47. meg says:

    THANK YOU MATT FOR CLARIFYING WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN THAT INTERVIEW! Cause haters just grab at anything to put down characters (and actors) that are in the way of their ship.

    I know the Regina part was just a cue on Matt’s part but I really would hate to see if something happened between her and Hook since I think they just tolerate each other.

    Hook and Emma have that special something and I really hope the writers don’t mess up the awesome potential there. I mean, Hook and Emma have this undeniable connection and they each bring out stuff in the other that no one else can. And the potential for their story is EPIC. I mean Hook turning his back on Revenge for Emma and Emma learning to trust again because of a pirate and both of them learning to love again despite everything. It’s just soooo beautiful I can’t wait to see that journey!

    • Louise says:

      Believe it or not. People can have actual opinions about something that are not influenced by ships.
      It’s hard to understand for some of you though, I know, since you’re only focused on shipping.

      • meg says:

        Hey chill… didn’t mean to generalize that all the hate for Hook stems from shipping but you have to admit that most of the hate do.

    • sara says:

      I really wish I was watching this show where Emma and Hook have this ~connection~

      • meg says:

        really wish you were cause I know I’m talking about Once Upon a Time. Connection between them have been acknowledged by both actors, look it up. Deeply sorry you don’t see it :)

    • Cass says:

      What has Hook brought out in Emma that no one else has? She learned to trust from Henry and her parents.

      • meg says:

        cause emma is such a trusting person now right? that’s why she left him at the beanstalk even when her lie detector thing told her he was telling her the truth? I was saying this trust thing is an on-going thing and that Hook can help her learn to trust again. The bringing stuff out in each other part, I meant something along the lines of we see new parts of themselves with each other or they interact with each other in a way they don’t with other people because again, they do understand each other and can read the other like an open book. see finale diner scene for one reference.

        • Cass says:

          Okay, so you’re referring to stuff that hasn’t happened yet? Thanks, now I understand. As for the diner scene, after she “read him like an open book” he proceeded to steal the bean and leave the town to die. He only came back when he remembered Bae. So far the only people who have shown us new parts of Hook so far are Bae and Milah–and Regina that one time when he was admitting that revenge had gotten him nowhere.

          • meg says:

            Hook tried to do what he’s always done – look out for just himself. But he came back not because of Bae only. Colin said so himself it was both Bae’s memory and Emma’s speech to him at the diner that reminded him that he could care for someone other than himself. :D

  48. JA says:

    huh…I didn’t know there was a backlash against Rusty’s character on Major Crimes. I really liked that storyline. I thought he made Raydor seem a little more human and a little less cold like they portrayed her on The Closer. I’ll be glad to see his character continue.

  49. Broadwayfan says:

    I’ll tell you what keeps going through my mind as I watch REVOLUTION every week; how do these women look like this with no shampoo, no way to shave their legs or armpits, or do their eyebrows. That’s always in my mind. After all these years razors are just gone. Of course, the guys seem to be able to shave just fine. Everyone must smell pretty ripe by now, too.

  50. Jules says:

    Wow.. I watch Once as well and yes, I’m also shipping oen couple, but jeez, this fandom is going crazy!! Seriously, the actor says something as his character and suddenly he is – to quote some comments before – “a racist, misogynist, scumbag” and so on. Really?!?! He is an actor speaking as his character!!! Also, fairytale characters didn’t live in exactly the same time as we do now, attitudes were different….
    Okay, I’ll stop now, cause I’m basically just laughing at all these ridiculous comments from before…. It’s a TV show, people!!!
