As I watched the winter finale of Once Upon a Time, I was stunned to see Hook die. I didn’t think the writers would go there and thought maybe Colin O’Donoghue wanted to leave.
When the twist unfolded and I discovered that the point of the first half of this season was to make Rumpelstiltskin the Dark One again, I liked the twist, but was disgusted that they killed Hook in the process. To make matters worse, it appears Hook ended up in the underworld, even though the darkness was taken from him and he was good when he died. If that’s not ridiculous enough, Emma decides she’s going to get Hook back.
Yes, folks, when Once Upon a Time returns on March 6, everyone is going to Hell to save Hook. While I think this storyline is absurd, I’m curious to see how all of this plays out. What will happen to Regina and Rumpel when people they sent to the underworld see them? Once they find Hook, how will they return to Storybrooke? When they return to Storybrooke, will other characters follow? I wouldn’t mind seeing Cora return, but I can’t take more of Peter Pan. I hope he stays in Hell.
What did you think of the winter finale? What characters are you looking forward to seeing again?
