Captain Hook & Emma Swan = Captain Swan

      Ariel is not even on the show, and will not debut until Season 3.

      Plus, having Ariel hook up with Hook contradicts the timeline. The Little Mermaid occurs around the time Regina captured Belle, and Mulan met Prince Phillip. As far as we all know, Hook was still in Neverland at the time.

    • How do we know she occurs in that time? And that's a part of my theory, in season three when we finally get to see Hook's backstory, Ariel will be a part of it! :D, and then he'll find her in Storybrooke, and they'll get together. It's just a theory, I mean so is this Hook+Emma stuff.

      How do we know The Little Mermaid occurs then, because Regina mentioned a certain mermaid to Rumplestiltskin, in Skin Deep. Ariel probably got the squid ink, Rumplestiltskin used on himself, in The Price of Gold. The creators already know how they are going to write Ariel into the storyline, and put some hints into the show.

      Besides, Hook has yet to move on from Milah.

      Why do people ship SleepingWarrior? Shippers will ship anyone with anyone, that is why. CaptainSwan was born from Hook's crush on Emma, and snowballed from there.

      There is nothing wrong with shipping just for fun. It becomes a problem when shippers become so deluded, and believe their ship will become canon.

      So who do you ship him with lol?

      I ship Hook with himself.... after all, he is his own True Love ;) 

      As a whole, I do not consider myself a shipper.

      No, no.... you misunderstood me. Hook is in love with himself, hence his true love is himself.

        Loading editor
    • I think Hook had a good rapport with Milah. They were in love with each other. I don't know if they were each other's true loves, but obviously, Hook was so devastated by her dying at Rumplestiltskin's hands, and it resonated within him so much that vengeance was born out of his love. =/

    • Oh, lol, ok I get it now.

      Yeah.... Hook reminds me of Gaston, from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. A narcissistic jerk, but enjoyable and fun villain. Even Hook's crush on Emma, reminds me of Gaston's crush on Belle.

        Loading editor
    • Oh, haha, that reminds me of a shirt I saw in Disneyland with Gaston and he's flexing in the mirror and the shirt reads, "Stauts, single" lol!

      My opinion is he's got more dept to him. Kinda like a Jack Sparrow or Anakin Skywalker, they were arogant too, but capable of love and had some troubles in their past. I like to think that in the end Hook will become good, still all Hookish, with his wooing and pirate-like-ness, and stuff, but generally on the good side. Like with my Hook+Ariel story in my head (haha) he met her in Neverland while trying to find a way to destory Rumple, and they had some chemitsty but he wasn't able to move on from Milah so soon, and then she gets lost (doesn't die though) and then in season 3 he finds her in Storybrooke, and they start a relationship.

      Won't happen maybe. Hook is TWO cast member. So it's unlikely Hook will be in season 3. Plus, Killian's name is not Eric.

    • Ya, I know that, I'm not saying he's Eric, & I said in my post it's just in my head lol. They probably won't actually do that.

    • I can kind of see what the Captain Swan shippers are seeing, but I guess I'm just too mad at Hook to see him being with anybody. All he currently cares about is revenge. He needs a reality check. I don't think Milah would be proud of him for (attempting to... >.>) kill Rumple. Hook doesn't even seem to care about Bae -- Milah's own flesh and blood. Revenge consumes him and could very well be his doom. (And I like Emma and Neal together much better anyway)

      I love what you said there... you hit the nail on the head. But people can change. Emma has been through a lot and has been a "Pirate" herself in the past. She knows what it's like and can see through his lies and manipulations. She maybe his perfect match. And he may learn to be a better person like Regina trying to be for Henry.  I mean what else does he have to live for anymore? The world/worlds are a bit different now... and there are only so many people out there that will be able to understand their secret being from another world.

    • Also, He could never try to stab her in the heart and control her. She has a lot of advantages against him. She can win in a fight against him. Him being a Pirate ... this is probably attractive her being independent and can handle her own.  It also reminds me of Sookie and Bill in True Blood... she couldn't read his mind/thoughts which was a big turn on for her being a telepath. In Hook's case he can't manipulate her or take control of her even if he wanted to.

      "Watch it, Hook, I am the former lover of your former lover's son, and my son is your former lover's grandson, so think about that." I doubt she'd phrase it that way, but it would be a golden moment of humor if the writers had Emma say something like that to Hook to shoot him down. It would poke fun at how screwy Henry's family tree is, too.

      The writers recently said at PaleyFest that one of the things they like about that show is that none of the characters "are completely good, and no one is completely bad." (to paraphrase). 

      Hook is a villain, yes...but he also has compassion (as seen in "Tallahassee" when he talked about the Lost Boys) and can be a gentleman at times. 

      He's one of my fave characters. He's complicated, and rough around the edges...just like Emma...which is why I'm team Captain Swan all the way ;)

      You do realize that in real life Lana is only three years older than Colin right? Jennifer is also older than him too. Not that I ship him with either lady, but disliking a ship because of an age gap is rather silly to me. I should know I'm a Rumbeller for crying out loud...

      I don't know if I should take that as a compliment or not.

      I would argue that shipping a canon pairing does make you a real shipper. I don't use the term  as "I hope this pairing becomes canon," rather I see it more as "I like these two characters together romantically and enjoy fanfics, videos, etc. of them." The hope that the characters become a canon pairing is secondary.

      I think it is because most people consider a "ship" to involve two people who are not romantically involved in the show, like "Red Cricket" or "Captain Swan". If you are obsessed with a canon couple, then that's not "shipping" them, that just means you like the couple that is already together.

      I totally agree with you. Maybe he did care about and love Milah, but he really did not seem to care about Milah's son, Bae. He is too focused on revenging Rumple. After all, Milah would have loved Bae even if she did not love Rumple. I like Emma and Neal together too!

      Personally, I don't think Captain Swan will happen. From what I've observed they don't care about each other that way. Hook's current passion is gaining revenge on the man who killed his former lover, and Emma didn't hesitate to leave him in Manhattan. And let's not forget the Swanfire forshadowing, that is the only Emma ship which has had progress in the last couple of episodes.

      Adam was being nice to the fans. He didn't say Emma and Hook's scenes were going to be romantic in nature, only that there is going to be some.

      Hook is part of the main cast and if they have a season 3 he will most likely be there. And Hook isn't Eric but you know how the OUAT writers have intertwined everything... Like how RUmple is the beast, the crocodile and the dark one. Or how red is the wolf. And Cora is the Evil Queen's mother, The Queen of Hearts and the millers daughter. Maybe they'll make Hook multiple personalities too. Or maybe Hook and Eric compete for Ariel.. Or maybe there is no Hook and Ariel... Maybe theres a Hook and Wendy... Maybe Hook is Wendy's dad... Maybe Hook is Peter Pan. With this show you never know... but I still ship CS :) Even though theres like a slim chance of it happening.

      I agree with you, one of the underlining themes of OUAT is redemption and change. However, I would like to point out that no such change has happen in Hook, and in his relationship with Emma either.

      I'm not saying Captain Swan has no chance of happening, but from what we have seen so far the likelihood is very low right now. If the ship were to happen then Hook would have to:

      1. Give up on revenge. Learn that he has been wasting his life in order to end another man's life. This is the most important change his character needs to grow in any way. It is also vital to Captain Swan too. The idea that Hook and any character engaging in a serious relationship without this growth would officially turn Hook into Draco Malfoy. The "bad boy" who is nothing more than the fandumb's pony and the creator's punching bag. (Sorry if I offended any Malfoy fans out there, but that is the way I see the character)

      2. Have a complete moral makeover. From what I can gather Hook has only been living for himself and revenge for the last 300 years. If he were to pursue a stable relationship with Emma then he would have to change his pirate's life. Similar to Regina and Rumple, it will most likely be difficult to reverse his ways and lifestyle with or without a love intrest. And possibly...

      3. Forgive Rumple and be at peace with him. The hardest step, but the zenith of his character growth none the less. Now that Emma and the rest of her relatives acknowledge Mr. Gold as family this would be the icing on the cake that these two men were able to overcome their hatred and become family. Probably won't happen until the final season if that is the direction we're heading into.

      Let's not forget Emma has trust issues too. I'd imagine the most logical way she would get over this is through the root of her troubles; her family not a sassy pirate she climbed a beanstalk with once. Hypothetically, any romantic relationship with Emma at this point is going to take a lot of work for it to happen. She could fall back in love with Neal, pull a Belle and see the "good" in Hook, or I dunno choose to not pursue love at all. Emma is suppose to be a strong, indepentent woman, I think she could pull it off.

      And that is how I see the situation between Emma and Hook. I don't think it's impossible (anything can happen in fiction), but I don't think it will happen based upon how the writers have portrayed their relationship thus far. I only typed all of this text, not to crush your Captain Swan heart (far from it!), but to give you guys a clue. When your ship, like you really ship this thang, doesn't happen, it sucks. Trust me, it happened to me. I was so angry. I couldn't watch the show or anything related to it for years without being reminded that my ship sank, and I didn't even see it coming. So there ya go.

    • I agree with you, one of the underlining themes of OUAT is redemption and change. However, I would like to point out that no such change has happen in Hook, and in his relationship with Emma either.

      I'm not saying Captain Swan has no chance of happening, but from what we have seen so far the likelihood is very low right now.

      I agree with saying that there's a slim chance but it's not exactly one in a million. If anything, I'd say that Hook has at least as much of a chance as Neal.  It's been mentioned that Emma will have her choice of suitors, so that means that Neal's not the only one in the running. (http://www.hypable.com/2012/10/02/once-upon-a-time-to-introduce-a-few-suitors-for-emma-in-season-2-poll/) Since August is now a kid and Graham is history, this leaves us with Neal, Hook, and maybe the Hatter (or some other guy that might show up in Season 3). Neal is the very reason that Emma is afraid to trust another guy, but she admitted that she wanted to trust Hook (saying that she couldn't take the chance that she was wrong about him).  She also was rather worried about hiding Hook from Rumple, and it seemed rather pointed that Rumple mentioned the risk of him killing Hook to get Emma to hurry up and leave Storybrooke with him.  None of these are proof that Captain Swan is a "sure thing," but they do hint that there's room for development there. The "Timeless" promo also seems to hint at the possibility of a romance. I doubt that they'd have used Hook and Emma in that promo if there was not at least a decent chance of a relationship there.

      Of the options we know about, I prefer Hook because I like the idea of Emma and him helping each other to move on and heal.  Hook has shown that his morals are a bit skewed but they do exist.  It would've been no skin off his nose to just let Aurora's heart go, but he didn't. He's got a ways to go before he could get with Emma, granted, but she's also got a ways to go before she lets her walls down enough to get with anyone.  I like the fact that it could take time and that it would be less expected than Swanfire because of Hook's status as a "bad guy."  I will most likely be upset if it doesn't happen, but that's life. I think it's actually more fun if the competition is close; that makes it mean more when Emma does finally choose someone.  That being said, this ship hasn't sailed/sunk yet.  After all, Hook loves a challenge! :D

    • I'm not in to "Captain Swan". One of the things I love about Emma is that she isn't the type of girl to fall for a guy due to being "handsome" or "charming" and for her to end up with Hook.... Well, it just doesn't fit her character very well. My mind might change once I see Hook's backstory.

      Nope. Charming/David + Killian Jones = Davy Jones. Other than Rumple, who's in another league of being, they're the only 2 guys on the ship. I hope they end up as bros instead of squabbling the whole time.

    • OK I know everyone has their opinion and can think what they want but SERIOUSLY. People are still shipping Emma and Hook if you think about it,it would be kind of discusting if they end up being together because back when Bae was a boy Hook was with his mother (as you all know). And when Hook found out who Bea was on his ship he wanted to be like a father to him. So it's like saying Emma is going to be with Rumple....not right.....I know he's younger because he was in neverland but still. Plus she already told Neal that she loves him and he said he loves her. So if you want to keep shipping "Captain Swan" then go ahead but think about this.

      Honestly, if we let age gaps get in the way, none of these relationships would work ever. Rumple has nearly 3 centuries on Belle, and Neal has 2 centuries on Emma. Hell, even when Emma and Graham were this close to being together, he had to be three times her age (he was an adult when Snow ran away as a teenager). The theme for most of these couples is looking beyond the physical and seeing the beauty within one another. That's what makes shipping so easy on this show :D

    • Its not age that is against Captain Swan. Its the fact that Hook is sorta kinda father position to Bael. He was his mother's partner and also expressed  desire to be his father figure in NL.

    • That father figure position was proposed, unrecipricated, and then completely shut down by a traitorous Hook, so whatever was between him and Bae is over. I believe that Hook (who also lost a lot of time in Neverland and sleeping in Enchanted Forrest because of Cora) might have fatherly desires, but no longer for Bae, but maybe towards Henry out of a sense of honor or obligation. That's what made him turn back in the first place. He didn't want to orphan the son of the man he inadvertantly helped to orphan. That connection made from his wanting to help Henry could bring him closer to Emma. It's a possibility, and Colin O'Donoghue's talents should not be wasted next season. Too much charm!

    • They may not be interested romantically yet, but Emma will have multiple suitors and--whatever your personal preference--Hook is most likely one of them.  Just because nothing was decided for certain this season doesn't mean that their current relationship won't develop into something more during season 3.  Jennifer Morrison said that "Nothing happens quickly for Emma in love, unfortunately". (http://tvline.com/2013/03/01/once-upon-time-season-2-spoilers-jennifer-morrison-emma-neal-hook/).  She also said that Emma and Hook share an "undeniable connection."  It's too early to claim that it's been decided either way, so why not keep an open mind until we have more to go on?

    • The only problem I have with CaptainSwan is the fact (well potential fact - if there is such a thing!), ok there is hope that Neal's still alive and at some point in the future will meet up again with Emma.  I can definitely see that the writers are setting the scene for Hook and Emma to get together and if they do I think a love triangle with them and Neal would just be messy and dull! Like it's been said, it takes A LOT for Emma to love so having her and Neal say their 'I love you's' just for her to hook up with Hook.  I REALLY hope that they don't do that and that Emma finds out somehow that Neal's still alive before anything happens between her and Hook.

      If Neal does die then I'm all for CaptainSwan :)

    • I don't think that self-serving and reckless pirate is the right man for Emma. I think she wants something steadier, especially now that she has found her family. I really like Neal and I hope that he and Emma will end up together. And I would like to see Hook with Regina! They have a lot in common. They both have lost a loved one front of their eyes, and they both are very vengeful. And if I remember correctly, Regina once told Cora that she wants to be free and see the world. She could have that freedom by going to sail with Hook ;)

    • Hook and Emma would make such a cute couple! I love their little snippets because they both hilarious and adorable! Did anyone notice how Hook kept staring at Emma the whole last episode? However, it is doubtful that they will get together, seeing as Neal is probably still alive. Then again, they might make Emma and Hook a couple to create a love triangle of some sort. Though the chances are unlikely, I find myself rooting for this couple. I love Hook's backstory, and his relationship with Milah, but he needs to move on, and I think Emma should be the one to do that. I could definitely see Hook trying to comfort Emma because of "loss" (although we know he's not dead) and them bonding in that way. I love Emma and Neal together, but I love Hook and Emma more! I was really surprise that Emma was still in love with Neal, and vice versa, after all this time. HookxEmma!

    • Hook + Emma = 0

      Hook is out for himself.  He could of freed Aurora and then all of them could have gone back to Storybrooke... but no, he sold them out to Cora when he took Aurora's heart.  He totally backstabbed Emma.  He does not love her.

    • I think they have chemistry, but I don't think Emma would go to someone like Hook simply because he's too untrustworthy. That's not someone she would want for Henry, or for herself. She's worked too hard to throw it away on someone like Hook who has backstabbed her already.

        Loading editor
    • I have a hard time believing Hook's done trying to kill Rumplestiltskin, seeing as its been has goal for almost 300+ years. It was very surprising that he just all of a sudden up and abandoned his thirst for revenge. Obviously, Hook does not want to be alone, but he's too much of coward to love anyone. He's scared that if he loves again, he'll lose that person like he lost Milah. Emma, on the other hand, faces the same thing with what's recently happened to Neal. Yet, she also has another set of trust issues because when she trusted Neal, she got stabbed in the back (although his intentions were good). In that way, both of them can relate; however, Emma is, as of now, soley focused on finding Henry, while I'm not entirely sure what Hook is up to. There is a possibility for a relationship here, but they would have to overcome the obstacles, which I previously mentioned, and that could definitely take a while. As for age, I really don't think that would be an issue. Emma dated Neal, and he was 200+ years (even if she didn't know it). However, the kind of step-father to Neal thing would definitely be a little weird. Hook and Emma would be great together, but whether or not it is Hook, I believe Emma deserves a happily after. Especially, seeing after every one of her previous possible love interests (not including Hook) has a) died, b) turned into a little boy, c) sent through a portal to FTL and nearing death. Although Hook is untrustworthy and that is certainly not a trait Emma is looking for, he has this chance to prove to Emma that he is worthy of her trust. Hook definitely has the capacity to love (hence, Milah), but he has built walls up to protect himself from ever loving again, which I think also contributes to flirtacious behavior. This last episode, however, showed that he is willing to let go of these walls, as he doesn't want to be alone. So, we shall what happens. Can 4+ months move any faster? I can hardly wait until season 3!

      He couldn't have freed Aurora and gotten them all back to Storybrooke--they needed the wardrobe ashes from Cora (and Cora was too powerful for him to take on). Supposing he HAD rescued Aurora and gotten her back to the princess squad (minus the ashes since he couldn't fight Cora alone), Emma had just left him behind on the beanstalk so it's natural that he would not be sure if they'd accept him.  Emma backstabbed him before he did anything to her. To be fair, Emma arranged for his safety (with the giant) and Hook literally bent over backwards to save Aurora's heart. They both did what they thought was necessary to reach their goals. 

      It's natural that they don't "love" each other yet, but they do understand each other and feel a kinship that lays a foundation on which to build a deeper relationship.  I would rather see Emma with a man who would fight for her than one who refused to fight for her even when he knew that she had broken the curse. Emma doesn't need a man in her life per se, but she does deserve a happy ending and she and Hook make a nice team. Colin even said that Hook might fool around with Regina while "waiting for Emma"--which seems to hint that Hook considers Emma an ideal partner (http://www.examiner.com/article/once-upon-a-time-season-3-spoilers-hook-s-love-life-teased). Finally, Jennifer Morrison stated that the writers were thinking of giving Emma a love interest who will be "quite an unexpected character, like a villain!"  I guess we'll find out in S3.

      Hook most likely won major points with Emma because he came back to her and put the bean in her hand. That should leave a big impression on someone who has had so many people abandon her for the "greater good."  He even offered Emma his services despite the fact that helping her forces him to live in close quarters with his enemy.  Trust is hard to regain once lost, but they will have tons of time whilst on a boat together.  A man risking his life to help you find your son? Sounds worthy of a second chance to me.

    • It would just be so disrespectful from Hook.. First he took Neal's mother, and now he would take the woman Neal loves and even has a kid with, too? No way! Hook once said he's honorable man, now he has a chance to prove it by keeping his hands off of Emma.

        Loading editor
    • It won't be a question of honor until Hook finds out that Neal is alive. Right now both Hook and Emma believe that Neal suffered a mortal wound and most likely died. It would be insensitive for Hook to actively pursue Emma after he found out about her relationship with Bae, but if they grow closer to each other due to the shared quest to retrieve Henry, it would be unfair to put all the blame on Hook.  It can be claimed that Neal didn't fight for Emma (not contacting her after she broke the curse) and until very recently he was ready to start a life with another woman, so I don't think Emma should feel obligated to never pursue a relationship with another man/Hook/whomever. Just because you love someone doesn't mean they will always be the right person for you. I'll be happy if Emma finds "Happily Ever After" with EITHER Neal or Hook, and I really dislike that so many fans of each pairing are negative about the other one. Open-mindedness is a good thing!  There's now a thread for the "Swanfire" pairing, so let's share the Neal/Bae x Emma love there in a positive way.

    • Many people seem caught up in the moment over this kiss but losing sight of reality: While the kiss was undeniably passionate and probably long overdue/letting off some pent up frustration over building sexual tension, keep in mind the zillions of complications that would severely hinder a longterm Hook/Emma relationship. I don't "ship" because the whole concept seems very childish and I'm in my 30s. Looking at this situation from a realistic perspective, the reason Hook looks so worried after she kissed him is because he realizes that no matter how he feels about her, there are so many challenges and issues that have to be dealt with before they could remotely consider an actual relationship. I don't think Emma fully understands the Milah/Hook/Rumpel situation. Hook already knows that will be a red flag. Plus getting involved with her when she's still conflicted/hurting over Neal, who is also a character Hook himself spent much time with. Plus his reputation and past discretions (shooting Belle, stabbing Mr Gold, etc etc). Knowing that Emma's parents don't approve of him. He probably feels like he can love this one all he wants, and while that kiss was very exciting and eye opening for him, there is SO much crap that will have to be dealt with before it would ever work out.

      There is also the fact that Hook and Henry haven't really interacted at all. Plus him being the "truest believer" and still establishing a relationship with the biological father he only just met. I don't think Hook ever expected it to actually go anywhere, which is why he continually teased her and hit on her. Even though he DOES care about Emma deeply on some level, people need to keep in mind that it will be a very bumpy road for these 2. Thinking about it longterm, I have a hard time understanding how they will write the two of them to be true loves. There are just so many past discretions and issues that I think would pointly contradict the way the characters are written and the decisions they would have actually made. But I guess we shall see. I absolutely adore Hook and I want him to have a happy ending, regardless who it's with.

So since, Hook has declared his love for Emma in the "Moment of truth, literally." and the way he looks at her, I guess they are gonna be a couple. Also we have to take in the rating factor, by which I mean is that 75% or something of the fans want "Captain Swan" (I want Captain Swan really badly ^_^) I'm think the producers will try to increase their ratings by listening to the fans. Hook cares a lot about Emma. A LOT!

      SPOILER ALERT: READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

      The producers said in an interview, that they might put Hook and Emma 2gether, YAY! They also said that their decisions are like 75 to 25, Woo-HOO!! But, (there's always a 'but' -_-) they haven't properly made their decision yet, however they also said that Ep. 7 will reveal the man (Hook or Neal) slightly, if you understand fully.
