ABC has released a first look at season 5 of Once Upon A Time, the season of the Dark Swan, formerly Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison). When we last left our reluctant savior, she sacrificed herself to the darkness which sucked her up, to save Regina (Lana Parilla) from it. The Dark One’s knife clattered to the asphalt, and the words “Emma Swan” magically appeared on it. This teaser shows the opening scene of Episode 5.1 aptly named “The Dark Swan.”
Watch the video below.
Regina is the best:”Put that thing down before you hurt yourself, Guyliner.” Guyliner, of course is Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), who was relegated to supportive boyfriend, with hardly any substance in season 4. In a classic case of be-careful-what-you-wish-for (because I lamented his taming), it now seems Hook is poised to become front and center. It is the perfect opportunity for him to be the hero of the season, a hero that is more than ready to get down in the dark dirt with her, if that’s what it takes. They also have other problems to face, namely Zelena (Rebecca Mader) pretending to be Robin Hood’s (Sean Maguire) wife, Maid Marian, and getting pregnant by him. Now Regina and Robin cannot get rid of her.
In the clip, Henry (Jared Gilmore) looks at Regina suspiciously when she calls Swan a problem. Snow and Charming (Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas) believe she can be saved, as per usual. They are the ones that created this whole mess anyway. Hook is desperate, and tries to summon The Dark Swan.
