Henry's family tree

  • Archie sees Geppetto’s puppet parents in the window of Gold’s shop.
  • Henry quoted, “Second star to the right, and straight on ’til morning,” a sure nod to Neverland. (The Miller’s Daughter)
  • Wendy was reading The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and was being disobedient.
  • Hook was confused about Jello and then tries to make a pass at Ruby.
  • Tamara and Greg tell Hook that Neal was killed, in which we see Hook’s face drop.

– Sincerely, Hook: Colin O’Donoghue talks about playing the character Hook.

  • Hook has two identities, despite not being cursed: Killian and Hook.
