What do Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), a beanstalk, a magical compass, a thief, and someone (Henry’s dad?) wanting to make "an honest woman" out of Emma (Jennifer Morrison) have in common? No idea yet, but they're all coming together on Once Upon a Time Season 2, Episode 6, "Tallahassee" (airing November 4).
We already know Henry’s (Jared Gilmore) father will be revealed in "Tallahassee." That's also reportedly Emma's big flashback episode, based on the name of the Florida town where she said she spent the most time. However, we've also been told Emma will have a few suitors this season, and it's possible the new episode description hints to someone wanting to put a ring on it. Like Henry’s papa?
Here's the short synopsis for "Tallahassee": "Emma follows Captain Hook up a beanstalk in hope of finding a magical compass; a fellow thief wants to make an honest woman out of Emma."
So Hook will hang out with Emma — Hotness! Any Team Hook Swan shippers? — and the beanstalk will make an appearance. Will Jack be arriving? Is Jack the fellow thief? Is Jack Henry’s father? Or is Jack not a part of this at all? And by “honest woman,” are they talking more like Jiminy Cricket (Raphael Sbarge)-conscience or wedding bells?
One fan theory out there is that Rumplestiltskin’s (Robert Carlyle) grown son, Baelfire, is Henry’s father. How would he fit into this? It’s possible the fellow thief bit is part of the flashback itself. We know Emma gave birth in jail, so maybe her baby daddy wanted to marry her — but circumstances changed and he had to abandon her.
We’re also supposed to visit Portland in this episode, as part of Emma’s flashback, so perhaps the truth will come out at that point. Do you think the mysterious man we met in the premiere (Season 2, Episode 1: “Broken”) (he of the “Broken” postcard) will be involved or is he part of a completely different storyline?
Anyone else feel like they need a flow chart to keep all of these relationships in order?
UPDATE: ABC released the full-length synopsis of "Tallahassee," which is as follows.
"With the hopes of finding a magical compass that could help her and Mary Margaret [Ginnifer Goodwin] get back to Storybrooke, Emma takes a journey with a not-too-trustworthy Captain Hook up a treacherous beanstalk in an attempt to steal the item from a murderous giant (Jorge Garcia, Lost). Meanwhile, Emma's past is revealed to be anything but magical when she meets up with a fellow thief who wants to make an honest woman out of her."
Catch the next new episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, October 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
