Emma finally reunited with Hook, but a shocking revelation prevented them from going back to Storybrooke. Plus, someone’s pregnant!
Hades threatened to hurt Hook’s friends if he didn’t meet his demands, and he meant business. On the March 20 episode of Once Upon A Time, Rumple met up with someone from his past, Emma rescued Hook, Rumple betrayed everyone, and we learned that someone is pregnant!
Hades wanted Hook to choose three of his loved ones to stay in the Underworld. Hook refused to play this game. As punishment, Hades threatened to banish Hook to the River of Lost Souls!
Peter made a peace offering with Rumple to restore their relationship. Rumple had other plans. When he asked the crystal ball to show him who he wanted to see, it was Belle! Then he shattered it. He went to the others to talk about what was next. Rumple offered to go with Emma to confront Hades. All they needed was a dead person and their aura. Rumple knew exactly who he needed — Milah!
He found her in the Underworld, and she wasn’t too excited to see him. He asked her to help him save the man she once loved. From the look on Milah’s face, she would definitely tag along for the ride. How will Emma feel about this?! Well, Rumple immediately introduced Emma to Milah, and it was all kinds of awkward.
They all found their way closer to Hell, and as a way of saying thank you, Emma told Milah about her vision of Neal. It was a nice bonding moment between the two girls. Milah agreed to stick around to help save Hook. Now Rumple was the odd man out!
Let’s Make A Deal
Hades had Hook literally HOOKED above the River of Lost Souls. He admitted he was going to hurt Hook and then his friends so “there’s going to be nobody left to save you.” Okay, so Hades is terrible and clearly has it out for Hook for other reasons. He may just be jealous of Hook’s face. There, I said it.
Meanwhile, Regina needed Cruella’s help with finding someone in the graveyard. Her magic was being a little testy in the Underworld. Cruella told her about the tombstones. If it was upright, they were still around. If it was tipped, they had moved on. If it was cracked, it was BAD. She found Daniel’s tombstone, and it was tipped over. He had moved on. She just wanted to know if her first love was OK. Aw!
Rumple and Milah stayed behind with the boat as Emma went to rescue Hook. The show flashed back to when Baelfire was just a boy. He had been bitten by a snake and only magic could save him. Milah wanted him to kill the man who had the cure, so that Baelfire could live. Rumple left and Hook showed up to save her from a drunk lad. That was the moment everything changed for Rumple and Hook. Rumple tried to kill the man who had the cure, but he just couldn’t. Shockingly, the man gave him the cure, but he wanted to make a deal. He promised the healer his second born child. Even though they didn’t have one, Milah was furious.
Captain Swan Forever
Emma found Hook and risked her life to get to him. She caught him before he was banished to the River of Lost Souls. It was the first time they had seen each other since his death! He had told her to let him go, but he should have known that she wouldn’t listen. Captain Swan forever!
While Emma was gone, Rumple and Milah discussed her unfinished business. It wasn’t Hook, it was Baelfire. She let him down because she had grown to hate his father. She wanted to move on so she could apologize for everything. Their nice chat was interrupted by Hades. Now he wanted to make a deal with Rumple. This should be interesting.
Hades wanted to thank Rumple for sending so many people to the Underworld. He wanted his friends to stay so they would stop saving everyone. Hades asked Rumple to destroy the boat that brought everyone here. If Rumple didn’t do his bidding, Hades was just going to kill everyone. That was all Rumple needed to hear. He destroyed the boat and threw Milah into the River of Lost Souls!
Expect The Unexpected
Emma was all ready to split her heart to save Hook, but Regina couldn’t do it. Hook refused to choose three names to stay in the Underworld, so Hades did it for him — Regina, Emma and Snow!
Rumple was set to go back home, but Hades had other plans. Belle was pregnant, and now Rumple had to cash in on that deal he made with the healer when he had to save Baelfire. The healer had signed over the contract to Hades, so Rumple’s future second born child was now technically his! Rumple now worked for Hades, and he needed Rumple to do something for him that only Rumple could do. Oh boy…
