Now that we’ve seen Colin O’Donoghue’s nefarious and dangerously seductive Hook heading into Storybrooke on his pirate ship in the last scene of Once Upon a Time’s mid-season finale, it’s no longer a big spoiler where I photographed him in early November or who he was with.
Once Upon a Time crew put a fake chimney on top of Dave’s Fish & Chips in Steveston south of Vancouver to film scenes of Hook and Christopher Gauthier’s Smee spying from the roof. It’s probably not a coincidence that Dave’s Fish & Chips is next door to Mr. Gold’s on Moncton Street. After all, Hook has come to Storybrooke to exact his revenge on Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold. Or that his henchman Smee, who already abducted Rumplestiltskin’s beloved Belle once at the behest of her florist father, plays a role in Hook’s plans.
Watch your backs RumBelle. As Colin O’Donoghue told TVLine earlier this month: “Belle is such a huge part of Rumple’s life…She might figure into the equation.”
[Spoiler Update: After what I saw Once Upon a Time filming this morning, I’m no longer sure that Belle is Hook’s target. The cloak Hook is holding belongs to Bae.]
