    • Ha ha, yes, articles on this show always tend to turn into that no matter what the subject matter is. Though I’m surprised they don’t have THAT picture on here since its been floating around already…

      • As previously opined, take away the leathers and guyliner and Hook is kind of a mutt.

    • I’m guessing his brother might be Davy Jones…. hence the last name.

  • And I didn’t think he would look good without the guyliner… I have been proven wrong.

  • Hook looks so innocent with bangs.

    • And that shocking ponytail attached. What is heck is that?

      • It’s the Orlando Bloom look from POTC Curse of the Black Pearl.

  • As someone completely uninterested in who Emma’s macking on this time, maybe I’ll skip this one. Call me when that Mulan/Aurora plot shows back up.

  • Who is the surprising pair sharing an embrace? Charming and Emma? Does everyone think that’s hook?

    • Tvline didn’t post the picture, but you can see elsewhere on the web- and even in the actual promo, Emma kissing Hook

  • Not enough of the Regina shots.

    Comment by courts – October 22, 2013 06:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Anyone else see what I see? It looks like Charming has the same man purse/bag that hook has in his backstory photos… Which I’m guessing has something to do with the “powerful indigenous plant that could help heal any injury.”

    Aka – is this Charming’s way to survive his death sentence?

    • D’oh. Nevermind. They’re different.

      Comment by Lauren – October 22, 2013 06:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Except that’s probably exactly the tie-in to the backstory, finding the plant again. Good catch!

        Comment by Abby – October 22, 2013 11:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Isn’t it the water bag ? Made from cow/Ox/camel stomach?

  • I am so looking forward to Hook’s backstory and how he became a pirate, what led him to it. and he had a brother!!!

    Looking forward to more Emma/Hook progression

    Seems like this plant is more then it is, maybe connected to Charming’s kingdom as well as Emma’s tattoo!!!

    Comment by Len84 – October 22, 2013 06:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Wish it was the tattoo. Someone asked JMo about Emma’s tat either this past Sunday or the previous one and she said that it had yet to be addressed in any way on the show (as of episode 10) and she had no idea if/when it ever would be.

      • as long as it has nothing to do with Bai Ling and Thailand..aka the worst episode of Lost! I’m probably ok if they never address it…..

    • His brother and/or commanding officer? More fancy shoulder patch suggested superior officer.

      Comment by HereThere – October 23, 2013 04:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Charming’s kingdom is only his because of cou d’etat, it’s not like there’s a real connection to the crest of the man he overthrew.

      Comment by courts – October 23, 2013 06:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yay for a backstory on Hook, something i was looking forward to mostly because Hook is my fave, he is such a closed off man in terms of what he has been through and what led him to a pirate as well. Emotions dwells in his eyes there is so much to see.

    I hope we get a Charming and Hook bromance, these two have things in common and similar men if take away their titles of pirate and prince – brave, fighters, man of action.

    Rooting for Emma-Hook here, i see the progression here with them, each scene and each interaction they have says so much, he is there by her side and believes in her.

  • Hook looks too adorable and so innocent as young Killian Jones. what has happened to Killian to become the pirate he did and he has a brother

    More Hook & Emma as well <3

    Comment by JoRo – October 22, 2013 06:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agree. Hook is one of the most interesting characters on TV. Can’t wait or his backstory.

      Comment by Dee – October 22, 2013 06:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • BOO to Hook/Emma. Losing respect for her. Hes scum

    Comment by Danielle – October 22, 2013 06:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hook episode yay – Good Form!!!!

    Snowing <3

    Hook looks even more handsome, didnt think it was even more possible, cannot wait to see Colin be awesome as Hook and Killian

  • Give me Emma and Daddy!Charming hugs over Emma and Hook any day. She should be focusing on her family.

    Comment by Jennifer – October 22, 2013 07:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Kind of agree..I’m more interesting in watching Charming family plot lines!

      Comment by Christina – October 23, 2013 08:14 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I cannot wait for Hook’s backstory and who he was and how he was as Killian Jones and he was a navy officier or something and his brother (by the way i use to watch that actors in Neighbours lol)
    More stills are out on the net and it is Charming and Emma hugging.
    Charming probably thinks he isnt coming back and dying but got a feeling he will be saved and Hook will get a cure.
    Rooting for Captain Swan / Hook-Emma!

  • Killian Jones > Hook. Gotta love a man in uniform!

  • So thrilled! Can’t wait!

  • I find that I like Hook most when it’s with Charming or concerning Bae. Emma and Hook just don’t do it for me and Emma comes across as pathetic and slutty with Hook. Just plain dumb.

    Comment by Kelly – October 23, 2013 07:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Like Hook’s character but totally team Neal. Not happy. Emma will come around though…or…one of those two will kick it.

    Comment by Nick – October 23, 2013 07:12 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Would love to see Hook”s back story and hoping his brother is turning out to be future Robin Hood. That would be great! They are both thieves, one is for the causes, the other is for self.

  • I’m crossing my digits that the writers kill off Neal.

    Comment by Lynnette – October 23, 2013 09:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Is it just me, or does Hook look just like Prince Eric… Ariel is coming soon, after all.

    Comment by Meg – October 23, 2013 10:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He really does, but they already cast Eric. Unless maybe Hook is still Ariel’s Eric in this version and they have other plans for the Eri thatc they cast. Joanna Garcia and Colin O’Donoghue — any interactions between them seems like it might be interesting to watch..

  • I like Hook, and the way he flirts with Emma. I like that OUAT is bringing us there. After all Neal and Emma must be an endgame, especially since Pan brought up the fact that she is the daughter of pure good, and Neal the one of pure evil. Emma do needs to navigate before going back to that “epic” love. Although, I thin OUAT may be pushing Hook and Emma too fast. I want them to go that way, and I really feel it from Hook, but Emma just look as usual, trying to fight everything. And in the preview the kiss just look disappointing the way she throw herself at him.

  • Does anyone else have an issue with the poor CGI we are seeing? Can they do anything about it? Driving me nuts! Any thoughts, Matt?

  • First Hook was boinking Henry’s Gramma and got his hand cut off for it… now Hook wants to boink Henry’s Mom… pissed off Rumple and now Neil… and Rumple… First Gramma then Mom… first the hand… next the pecker… Hook is Toast if he doesn’t knock that crap off.
