Spoilers for Once Upon A Time Season 6 are ahead. If you don’t want to know what will happen, then stop reading.
Last season in Once Upon A Time, it seemed like Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) finally got their happy ending. Viewers have been concerned about the couple having their relationship torn apart. After all, that always seems to happen when two characters find and accept true love. It was reported that OUAT fans shouldn’t be too concerned about their romance and that it would just strengthen in Season 6. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be obstacles.
According to TV Guide, Once Upon A Time Season 6 spoilers reveal that Hook and Emma will ask themselves one important question. Can their love survive without the threat of constant danger? Is their attraction based on adrenaline-fueled moments? What happens when everything is calm and peaceful? Will their romance continue to thrive or will their feelings fizzle?
“It’s ‘a whole new world’ as Once kicks off Season 6 with an Aladdin-inspired tale. The show is doing away with the half-season story structure and stretching the plot through the whole season. First, our core characters will try to settle down in Storybrooke after a non-stop adventure through Camelot and the Underworld. The Evil Queen will return with her thirst for vengeance against Snow White bigger than ever before. Meanwhile, Emma and Hook will have to figure out if their romance works when they aren’t constantly in danger.”
Fans would love to see Hook and Emma live happily ever after. First of all, Jennifer Morrison’s character on Once Upon A Time has been through so much. Not only is her past riddled with pain, rejection, and abandonment, but now she is the Savior. That means Emma Swan puts her own happiness aside while helping others solve their problems and get their own happy ending. In Season 6 of Once Upon A Time, Emma will find out she is not the first Savior. There is a rumor that Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) will help her deal with this. By realizing what has happened to Aladdin, it is going to bring up a lot of concerns for Emma. Is her life going to end up like his? Will her body, soul, and spirit be worn and broken? Is it just about helping others and not getting to enjoy her own life?
Of course, OUAT fans are confident that there is a silver lining. Emma deserves to be happy and the whole point of Once Upon A Time is for the characters to get their happy endings. However, at Comic-Con 2016, TV Overmind reported that the definition of a happy ending was teased. Is it really a happy ending or is it just one final moment? That is a complicated question and there probably are no easy answers. It might be different for everyone in Storybrooke.
What do you think is going to happen with Hook and Emma in OUAT? Will their love survive without the constant threat of danger? Or will the Once Upon A Time couple have to admit that their attraction is based on adrenaline and not true love? With the Evil Queen separated from Regina, things won’t be calm in Storybrooke for long, so that might be a question that will be answered later down the road.
ABC network will air the Once Upon A Time Season 6 premiere on September 25.
