We’re still recovering from that heartbreaking Dec. 6 midseason finale. Emma and the gang are heading to the Underworld, so here’s what you need to know about the next half of the season. Warning: spoilers ahead!
Once Upon A Time is going where it hasn’t gone before — the Underworld. After Hook sacrificed himself in the name of love in the season 5 midseason finale, Emma and her crew set off to the Underworld to find him. We have to wait until March to find out what’s next, but here are all the spoilers we know of right now!
1. Hook’s not totally dead, but his return isn’t what you would expect.
“He’s sticking around, but in a completely different way and quite shocking,” Colin O’Donoghue told Entertainment Weekly. As we saw in the promo for season 5B, we didn’t see Hook in the Underworld, but we did see a gravestone. Gulp.
2. The “Distinguished Gentleman” is coming.
Greg Germann has been cast as the pivotal season 5 figure, our sister site TVLine reports. The casting call for the character described him as “a mysterious figure with god-like powers who is always clad in a perfectly tailored suit,” someone who can “strike fear into people just by being friendly” and “the last person you ever want to share a drink with.”
3. Fan favorites are coming back!
Cora (Barbara Hershey), Peter Pan (Robbie Kay), Cruella de Vil (Victoria Smurfit) and Milah (Rachel Shelley) and more are coming back to the show. We saw many of them in the Underworld!
4. New Disney characters are coming!
Hercules and and Megara have been cast in season 5. The characters will pop up in the 13th episode of the fifth season, TVLine reports. That means Hades will be coming, right? After all, we’re in the Underworld now.
5. The 100th episode will give you season one feelings.
“The hundredth episode for us — and the second half of the season — what we’re really excited about is, we feel like we’re going to be honoring the show by really giving you that season one feeling all over again,” co-creator Edward Kitsis told our sister site Variety.
Once Upon A Time returns March 6, 2016 on ABC. Catch up by watching on Amazon now!
