We didn’t realize just how hard the wait would be after Once Upon a Time vanished from our televisions on December 15 after the absolutely magical Season 3 midseason finale, but thankfully March 9 is almost within grasp. Luckily, we can count on the Powers That Be to send us little spoilers that make the wait worth the while. The latest spoilerette? The title for Season 3, Episode 17.

“Time for another #OnceUponATime #titlespoiler! Hope to see ya March 9th! #WickedIsComing,” co-creator Adam Horowitz tweeted on January 27. The photo that Adam tweeted along with the message revealed that Season 3, Episode 17 is titled “The Jolly Roger,” which makes us extremely happy, since that’s the name of Captain Hook’s pirate ship!
We're looking forward to a Hook-focused episode of OUAT, but with the threat of a big death just around the corner, we have to admit that we’re also a bit worried for his safety. Sure, we don’t really have much info about the inevitable death, but Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) is currently occupying the No. 3 spot on our potential victim list, which doesn’t exactly bode well for Captain Swan shippers out there. That said, we have a sneaking suspicion that Neal (Michael Raymond-James) will be the one biting the dust, mostly because we would be crushed if our favorite swashbuckler would sail down the river. Hopefully this episode isn’t his swan song.
