Can Hook bring Emma’s Dark Swan back in Once Upon A Time’s series 5 premiere?

The first scene from the new season has arrived online and it hints at dark times ahead for the internet's favourite OUAT pairing...


If there’s one thing we’ve learned during this year’s Radio Times Sci-Fi Champion, it’s that Once Upon A Time‘s Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) are one of the internet’s most beloved pairings. But will their bond be strong enough to help Storybrooke’s ‘saviour’ return to the world in series five?


The end of the fourth season saw Emma sacrificing herself to save Regina (Lana Parilla), becoming ‘The Dark One’ – aka Once Upon A Time’s ‘big bad’ – in the process. Indeed, the last time we saw her she was nothing more than a name on a dark dagger.

What happens next? Well, you can find out right now with a sneak peek at the opening minute of series five, which premiered at Disney’s D23 Expo over the weekend. Jump to 30 seconds in to see the fallout of series four’s dramatic ending.

Can Hook bring Emma back? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. And if you’re not up to date with all the goings on in Storybrooke, you can catch up on the first four series via Netflix.


Once Upon A Time series five is available on Netflix
