Death became a pretty major character on Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 11.
To close out its 2015 run, the ABC drama appropriately titled this installment “Swan Song,” using it to bid adieu to Colin O’Donoghue’s beloved Captain Hook.
Only one thing will tell, and that's time.
If this truly is farewell to Hook, he at least went out by sacrificing himself as the man he always wanted to be. He died a hero’s death.
And here's how:
The sexy swashbuckler took the darkness into Excalibur, as Jennifer Morrison's Emma Swan proceeded to drive the sword into her lover, ending his life.
So it certainly appears as if this is curtains for the Captain, but the new Underworld was introduced this week and we know that Hercules and Megara will soon be joining the fairy tale characters in Storybrooke.
"Can we have both #PapaHook and Captain Hook back from the Underworld or is that asking too much, #OUAT needs more Hooks @OnceABC," wrote on Twitter user in response.
Another 'shipper, meanwhile, also remains hopeful, writing on Twitter:
"Thank u @OnceABC for this incredible & beautiful love story! We can't wait to see Emma save Hook! #CaptainSwan #OnceUponATime."
In the meantime, they can always visit TV Fanatic and watch Once Upon a Time online. Enjoy!
