‘Once Upon a Time’ Star: Hook Is “Drunk on the Power of Darkness”.

“Once Upon a Time” has set the stage for a deadly battle between good and evil in its winter finale, as Colin O’Donoghue’s Captain Hook faces off against Jennifer Morrison’s Emma with the fate of Storybrooke hanging in the balance. In the wake of Hook resurrecting every Dark One who ever lived, the residents of Storybrooke are facing the very real possibility that some may not survive the midseason finale of Once Upon a Time.In the fairytale drama’s season five winter finale, Dark Hook’s plan will take the pirate down his darkest path yet as he snuffs out all of the light in Storybrooke with original Dark One, Nimue (Caroline Ford), by opening up a portal to the underworld.

Variety spoke to O’Donoghue ahead of episode 511, titled “Swan Song,” to find out whether there’s hope for Hook and Emma’s relationship, his character’s similarities to Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle), and what we can expect from his team-up with Regina (Lana Parrilla) this week. Whether you’ve kept up this season or need to catch up, here are five important things you need to know before the winter finale: After meeting and falling in love with Merlin, Nimue turned out to love power more than the centuries-old wizard and became the first Dark One in season 5, episode 7, ” Nimue.” After Emma (Jennifer Morrison) betrayed Henry’s (Jared Gilmore) trust with Violet, he has been hesitant to trust her again. With doom imminent, Gold (Robert Carlyle) advises Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin), David (Josh Dallas) and the rest of the heroes to spend their last fleeting moments enjoying the company of their loved ones.

In a Fairy Tale Land flashback, the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) tests Hook’s mettle by forcing him to confront a demon from his past before contracting him to dispatch one from hers. It’s a different approach in the sense of, basically you can do whatever you want with something like that, because if somebody doesn’t have empathy, I’m sure that they can just enjoy seeing misery anywhere around them. Did showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis give you any hints about the Dark One mythology or tips on what his motivations were before you got to tackle this version of him?

Everything he’s doing is leading up to full revenge on Rumple, so either the Crocodile will die, or Hook could kill Belle (Emilie de Ravin) instead, taking away the one person whom Rumple loves most. The roles are reversed because now it is up to Emma to save him.” “She feels incredibly guilty that she’s responsible for everything going astray,” Morrison says. “She knows that even though her intentions were good, a lot of terrible things have happened because of it. But I think at this stage, he’s so angry with her and hurt because she did the one thing that he begged her not to do, because he knew he couldn’t fight against the darkness.

Even when she chose to take on the Darkness in the first place at the end of season 4, her decision to give herself up was: “Yes, Regina’s in danger, everyone’s in danger, but my son’s in danger.” Every decision for Emma since she’s been reunited with Henry goes back to her concern for him and never wanting to have to be separated from him and never wanting to hurt him again. But when you are essentially the most evil person in the world … you really go for the jugular, and the problem is that you could possibly follow through on what you say. I don’t know if necessarily killing Emma or Emma killing Hook is a thing that they would or wouldn’t do, but whatever it takes on both sides, they’re willing to do. At the minute with the way that Hook is, it’s a very difficult thing to see happening … it’s complicated. (Laughs.) Much like most of their relationship, to be honest.

He teased that “I can’t reveal too much in talking about it because it’s part of the second half of the season, but it’s worse than death.” The actor did say that the heroes will be ready to battle the Dark Ones, but it does not sound like they will win the initial battle. As always, Adam Horowitz shared two script teasers for the upcoming winter finale episode, and one of those teasers should have fans worried just a bit. I’m not sure I know the answer to that — I can only go on what we see with Rumplestiltskin as the previous Dark One, who’s lost his power now, but there is still that creeping want, once you’ve tasted it.

As she said, she knew what the plan was going to be — it’s something they can all feel because the darkness is an entity in itself that takes over a host’s body. Here’s another #OnceUponATime #scripttease for this Sunday’s winter finale. pic.twitter.com/sTdxSj2CpD — Adam Horowitz (@AdamHorowitzLA) December 4, 2015 #OnceUponATime #scripttease — winter finale Sunday pic.twitter.com/FK4g0ShCad — Adam Horowitz (@AdamHorowitzLA) December 2, 2015 Emma and Regina are featured in the second teaser above. For me, it was an interesting thing and I was delighted that we got to see part of Hook’s relationship with his father, because we knew from before that that’s such an important part of forming who he was or who he was to become. Yeah, we know that they had a previous relationship when in season two Regina tried to get Hook to kill Cora for her, and so we know that there is a prior relationship there.
