Ah, what could be better than a crisp autumn sail on the high seas with Captain Hook? We need to move to British Columbia, already! Vancity Filming took some photos on Friday, October 5 in Steveston, BC, where they were reportedly filming some scenes for Once Upon a Time Season 2.

As the site noted, "The Tall Ship Lady Washington had been spotted at Britannia Shipyard and Stage 49 signs were posted around the area, so it could mean only one thing – Captain Hook was in town!" Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) will make his debut on Season 2, Episode 4: “The Crocodile" (airing October 21). The official ABC press release lists actor Colin O’Donoghue's character as Killian Jones, which could be Hook’s Storybrooke name or his official name before losing his hand and getting the nickname of Hook.
Vancity says Hook and Regina’s (Lana Parrilla) mother, Cora (Barbara Hershey), were aboard the ship filming scenes together. They have a photo of a woman in a gown that could be Cora. Having Cora and Hook know each other opens a lot of possible doors — and Cora is supposed to be featured in Episode 4 — but before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it may be worth noting that someone in the comments does not believe that’s Barbara Hershey in the photo.
OK … well, if it isn’t Cora, it would make sense if it is Milah (Rachel Shelley). Episode 4 will also include a Fairytale Land flashback around Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) trying to "save his wife, Milah, from being kidnapped by a band of cutthroat pirates.” So it’s possible this is Milah and not Cora. Then again, the dress looks very fancy. Was Mrs. Rumple fancy?
Episode 4 may already be completely finished, with these shots taken for a much later episode. On Episode 8: "Desperate Souls," we’ll learn that Rumplestiltskin's wife left him because he was a coward and she couldn't stand being with him. Since Milah’s story is already tied to pirates, perhaps these shots are for Episode 8?
What makes sense to you from these shots: Hook and Cora, Hook and Milah, Hook and Regina or Hook and Some Other Lady?
Catch the next new episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, October 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
