After Regina and Rumple episodes, I was excited to get back to other characters of the show.
I have to say that this one if probably one of personnel favorite, along with Lost Girl and The Heart of the Truest Believer.
I think Colin o’donoghue shined in this episode–I loved how young and carefree and happy he was in the flashbacks. I wish we had more development for the relationship with his brother, but it still was done decently well.
Scenes I loved–
2). Pan trying to make a deal with Hook–the way the actors played out that scene was spectacular. I loved how Pan talked to Hook–in a superior, older manner. Hook could barely even look Pan in the eye.
If Hook had to put up with that for a few hundred years no wonder he’s tough as nails and kept focusing on his revenge. He had to somehow remain sane. Pan called Hook, Killian, which no one else has in present day, which may have struck a nerve. Makes you wonder what kind of dirty work he did for Pan and if he always went along with Pan’s deals or if he just picked and chose depending if they benefitted him or not. Since Pan could always threaten Hook with magic, Hook had to figure out a way to survive and eventually strike a deal with him to leave NL.[adrotate group="5"]

Likes – Hook saved Charming and Emma choosing to kiss Hook.
It was interesting to his backstory that he believed in a ‘hero’s journey’ at one point.
Dislikes – some of the flashback stuff was kind of silly, like the Pegasus sail.December 28, 2013 at 12:19 pm #234053PriceofMagicParticipant
This episode is definitely my least favourite of the season for several reasons.
1. My favourite characters are barely in it, if at all.
2. Hook’s backstory was emotionally flat. I didn’t care that Hook’s brother died because his own idiocy caused his own death.
3. Hook’s decision to become a pirate felt rushed, this episode should’ve shown the start of his descent into piracy not the start and completion of it.
4. Hook is probably one of my least favourite characters on the show. I disliked him during season 2, started to warm up to him in the first couple of episodes of season 3 then he ruined it in 307 and 310. Hook may be attractive but there’s nothing romantic about him.

I never posted my thoughts on this episode. casper peeves ate my post.
Anyway, i was dreading this episode. I did not like that Hook was given a brother and that they were naval officers. I thought that storyline made as much sense as Pan being Rumple’s father — meaning it made no sense and weakened the character’s back stories. I still feel this way somewhat bit have learned to live with it.
I thought Colin did a fantastic job playing the earnest young lieutenant Jones. He is a completely different person. Unfortunately, therein, lies the rub. Backstories should help you understand how the character became the character he is today. This backstory doesn’t do that. The move from upstanding, virtuous naval officer to devil may care swashbuckling pirate is not there. At best, Killian would have become a bitter, angry rebel. So how did he become the rum drinking, story telling, devil may care, hedonistic, charismatic although arrogant pirate in Crocodile pre rumple duel. How did Hook become so good sleight of hand and double dealing? This backstory does not fill in any of those blanks. I feel it’s because the writers wanted to give Rumple the Fagin like father even though it made better sense with Hook. Instead we get this rushed story were suddenly Killian and his whole crew become pirates. It defies common sense. It’s too bad because this episode should have had epic sword fights and adventure. the ship flying was cinematographic ally beautiful but the Pegasus sail was a little much.
It’s weird, but typical,of OUAT. The acting really elevated the storyline. As noted earlier , Colin did a great job as the lieutenant. The scenes between the brothers were very good. They were believable as brothers with a deep loving bond. It was heartbreaking to see Liam die and Pan was awful in making Killian believe he was at fault for “goading” his brother, when you know Pan set the whole thing up.
The Pan Hook scenes were fraught with tension, foreboding and danger. Pan was very creepy in his talk with Killian on the climb up. You can tell that Pan took delight in stripping down Hook’s confidence and self -esteem. I wished we got more backstory on what is one of the most iconic rivalries in literature. I am angry about that being completely dropped to give us Rumple’s garden variety daddy issues.
i liked the flirting and kiss between Emma and Hook. I thought it was funny that pan is basically a peeping tom.
i liked how Charming acted when he said his good byes and when he saw Snow again.
There were several good lines: one handed pirate with a drinking pirate, Snow’s “not that I mind”/Emma’s “I do”.
Keeper of Hook and Emma's smoldering first kiss, a certain Pirate's sauciness, the Evil Queen's snarkiness, Grumpy's gruffness and a drop of true love to make it all go down smooth.December 28, 2013 at 9:50 pm #234119RumplesGirlKeymaster

I really agree with you. I was looking forward to Hook and his father and getting that story. It has intrigued me since we learned it in 222. And with 305 it sorta feels like they took that idea they had and tossed it out the window and hoped no one would notice.
The move from upstanding, virtuous banal officer to devil may care swashbuckling pirate is not there. At best, Killian would have become a bitter, angry rebel. So how did he become the rum drinking, story telling, devil may care, hedonistic, charmatic although arrogant pirate in Crocodile pre rumple duel. How did Hook become so good slide height of hand and double dealing? This backstory does not fill in any of those blanks.
Again, I agree. There needed to be another scene or two to help me, as a viewer, understand Hook more.
the ship flying was cinematographic ally beautiful but the Pegasus sail was a little much.
I’m going to repeat myself so forgive me but forever rolling my eyes at the Pegasus sail"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
