On the “Once Upon a Time” Season 2 finale, the world’s craziest family worked together to defeat the fail-safe in the curse that would destroy Storybrooke and are now setting sail for Neverland to rescue Henry.
But anyway, now Emma, her parents, Rumpelstiltskin and Captain Hook are off to rescue Henry. We saw a bit of that old Hook-Emma spark in the season finale, even after she told Neal she loved him as he fell through the portal. Even Colin O’Donoghue can’t deny Hook and Emma have something.
“They definitely have a connection. Without a doubt you can see that Hook and Emma have a connection,” O’Donoghue tells Zap2it. “They both had love, lost it. In a strange way, they have quite similar backgrounds, outlook on life. They’ve got good banter with each other, but who knows what will happen there.”
[...] As that showdown takes shape, on which side will the infamous Captain Hook fall? Ringing TVLine from Ireland, Colin O’Donoghue shared a peek at the show’s sophomore closer, which will, among other things, draw us ever closer to Neverland.
TVLINE | When last we tuned in, Bae had just gotten fished out of the drink by Hook. What does the captain make of this strange boy?
Well, he’s just managed to find this boy floating in the middle of the sea, so it’s kind of an intriguing thing. He’s interested in who he could be or where he comes from.
TVLINE | I understand they find some things in common, as we get insight into Hook’s background.
Yes, you learn a little bit through Bae. You learn a bit about where Hook was from and about his background. You get to find out more about Hook and how he became the person that he is.
TVLINE | The scoundrel that he is.
Yeah, pretty much!
TVLINE | And what if Hook were to learn who Bae is?
Well, it’s bound to have some effect on him, because of the history with Rumplestiltskin and Milah…
TVLINE | What is Hook’s standing there in Neverland? What’s his relationship to that realm, to The Shadow, to the Lost Boys? What kind of dynamic will we discover?
It’s going to be very interesting for people to see Hook in Neverland and see [cocreators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz's] take on Neverland, because as you can tell from the way they’ve set up the other characters from other stories, everything’s not as it seems. As we know, [today's] Captain Hook is very different than Hook from before. For Hook, going to Neverland — as we saw in the “Crocodile” episode — was very much about being able to take some time to figure out how to get his revenge on Rumpelstiltskin. That’s his reason for being there. But it’ll be interesting to see if and how he will interact with the Lost Boys or whomever in Neverland
TVLINE | Meanwhile in Storybrooke…. Is Hook still doing Tamara and Greg’s bidding? Last week, they seemed to leave a bad taste in his mouth.
Hook is always out for himself, for the most part, so as long as Greg and Tamara can in some way get him to where he wants to be or help him out in his quest get revenge on Rumpelstiltskin or whatever it is, he’ll keep with it. But it’s not lost on Hook that he needs to make sure that he looks out for No. 1. He’s not particularly loyal to any one person — and certainly not Tamara and Greg, because they certainly go about their business in a bad way.
TVLINE | When he opted out of hanging around for Regina’s torture, was that coming from a place of sympathy? Or was it purely because Greg wasn’t furthering his revenge agenda in that instant?
There’s probably an element of both. In that case, there was maybe a bit of sympathy, because Hook is not an incredibly cruel person. He’ll do whatever it takes to meet his agenda, but I don’t think he particularly enjoys seeing somebody be tortured like that.
TVLINE | If he does wind up “caught in the middle” there in Storybrooke, between the good guys and the bad, will decisions that he’s made in the past inform the decisions he makes now?
In the finale you do get more of an in-depth look at his character. You see the layers that he has. He has it in him to be cruel at times, if that’s what he needs to do, but he also has the potential in him to be compassionate. Hook might have made a few bad decisions along the way, and he might feel like he should try to, in some way, make amends for them.

And in our new interview, Colin hinted to Access about all that’s ahead when the Season 2 finale kicks off on Sunday, May 12 at 8/7c on ABC.
AccessHollywood.com: You’re at season finale, how does it feel to finally be here?
Colin O’Donoghue: It’s great and it’s a cracking episode as well.
Access: Last time we saw Hook, he’d rescued a young Bae from the sea. How does Hook feel about children?
Colin: He’s intrigued. When it comes to Bae, I think he’s intrigued about this boy that he’s sort of pulled up out of the sea because obviously, when he rescues Bae, he doesn’t particularly know who he is and it’s kind of interesting — you get to see their relationship and you get to see them interact and I think that people are really gonna respond to that.
Access: How big of a revelation is that going to be to Hook (who Bae is)? Does it excite him?
Colin: It’s complicated because Hook obviously loves Milah, Bae’s mother, and he has this incredible hatred for Bae’s father, so it’s kind of a complicated thing. It’s interesting to sort of see Hook and… it’s pretty incredible that he happens to pull Baelfire out of the sea, considering his relationship with both parents, so you get to see a different side to Hook and a slightly deeper layer and I think people are gonna be really happy with that.
Access: You’d think he’d use Bae as leverage, but you brought up the point that Hook loved Bae’s mother so much. When you say we’re going to see another side of him, is it the cuddly hook that we’re going to get?
Colin: (Laughs) Cuddly Hook? I don’t know if it’s quite cuddly Hook. People are gonna have to watch it to see, because you know from Hook that he is quite self-serving, so, it’s interesting because you don’t know [which] way Hook can go. Sometimes he’ll try and be this charming gentleman and then other times he can be quite nasty and cruel so I think it’s gonna be interesting for people to see which side comes out when it comes to Bae.
Access: We’re going to get The Lost Boys this episode who are after Bae. What can you hint at about that?
Colin: Well, you know from Eddie [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz, the show’s executive producers,] that they kind of put a slant on whatever world that they create. They take these stories that we know and that we’ve grown up with and twist them in some sort of way to make them slightly different, so people can expect to see a slightly different Neverland than you would have before and with that, you’re gonna see a slightly different take on The Lost boys then you would imagine.
Access: Will we get to see you in present day Storybrooke? Greg and Tamara are ready to trigger the failsafe!
Access: Last time, Regina betrayed Hook, Hook betrayed her too… Can we expect him to be the wild card in this episode?
Colin: Hook kind of tends to be in it for himself and he sort of goes about his business trying to basically — he’s [been] motivated by his revenge for so long that it’s difficult for him to let go of that, but he does have the potential to be, I guess, a different person and you sort of get to see a little bit more complex Hook in the finale and I think that’s pretty much all I can say. But I think people are going to be interested to see how he is gonna interact with the people in modern day Storybrooke.
Access: The fan community came out in force for you when you became part of the show. What has it been like this year [to experience that]?
Colin: I’ve had a great time. He’s such a great character to be able to play and I just get to have fun with it. … Sometimes I’m amazed that people get upset with him being kind of a nasty character, when in actual fact, he’s Captain Hook (laughs). You know what I mean? But it’s just been fantastic. It’s such a great show to work on. He’s such a great character. It’s just a blast, to be honest.
Access: You’ve probably never seen so many artistic portraits of yourself in your life. You’ve seen a lot of them, I assume?
Colin: I have seen a lot. I’ve reTweeted a good few. I’ve had to kind of stop reTweeting them because there’s quite a few [that have] come in. … It’s amazing that people take the time to do that. Some of them are absolutely incredible. … It’s amazing how talent people are.
Access: So what are your plans for the summer? Gigs with your band? Are you thinking of Comic-Con?
Colin: I’ve had to bow out of the band because of working on the show, but yeah, just take it easy, spending time with my wife and seeing my family and I’d love to go to Comic-Con. I’ve always wanted to go. I’m kind of a bit of a nerd so I’ve always wanted to go to Comic-Con, so that would be great if that were to happen. But yeah, just take it easy and relax.
The Season 2 finale of “Once Upon A Time” airs on Sunday night at 8/7c on ABC.
