Hook vs. our world
I prefer ‘dashing rapscallion’.
Collider: In the mid-season finale, Hook shows up at Emma’s door in New York City, a year later, hoping that she’s going to remember their connection the same way that he does, and it clearly doesn’t work. Did he really think he’d just swoop in and kiss her, and she’s remember him and everything else, and he’d just save the day?
COLIN O’DONOGHUE: I think so, yeah. In Hook’s mind, it was a last-ditch effort that true love’s kiss would break the curse. In some weird way, he thought that maybe that was what he was going to achieve. That’s not saying there isn’t the possibility of something there, but that was his reason for trying.
When things pick back up, will we see that maybe he did have more of a lasting affect on her than even she let on?
O’DONOGHUE: Their relationship is complicated. He definitely has an affect on her. How it progresses from there is very complicated. That’s the only way I can really put it without spoiling anything. Emma and Hook have always had a mutual respect for each other. They see themselves in each other. That’s where it is, at the moment.
Will Hook continue to attempt to get Emma to remember who she is?
O’DONOGHUE: Well, there’s a new curse, so he needs her to remember. He’s there because she’s the savior and she needs to, in some way, help her fairy tale family. That’s his reasoning for coming back for her.
Will Hook be crossing paths with the Wicked Witch, directly?
O’DONOGHUE: She interacts with a lot of people, and you’ll see her interact with Hook. She is definitely a major part of what’s going down in Storybrooke.
What will the upcoming interactions between Hook and Blackbeard be like?
O’DONOGHUE: Charles Mesure, who plays Blackbeard, is fantastic. You don’t really get much more iconic, as a pirate, than Blackbeard. People are in for a treat, with that episode. You’ll get to see Hook interacting a bit with quite a formidable pirate.
When and how did you realize that people were rooting for this Captain Hook-Emma Swan hook-up, and were you surprised that people want to see them together?
O’DONOGHUE: That happened pretty much from the first episode that they interacted in. I definitely heard from people that they thought there was a chemistry between them both, and that’s probably because they both are quite similar. In some ways, they have quite similar backgrounds. They both were abandoned. Hook was abandoned as a child, as well. They both have lived just to survive for themselves and make a life to suit themselves, and in a way, they’ve connected through that. I think people saw that, from the start. And from the first time that they met, Hook has been an incredible flirt, so that’s part of it, as well. But they’ve definitely developed a weird relationship, over the period of getting to know each other. They definitely have a connection, I would say.
Do you think his feelings for her are genuine now, even if it might have just been a strange curiosity, in the beginning?
O’DONOGHUE: I think they are, yeah. In the episode where they tried to free Neal from the cage, they had to reveal a secret, and Hook’s secret was that he has feelings for Emma. They had to tell the truth in order to succeed, so in his mind, he was telling the truth.
