‘s Emma Swan and Captain “Killian Jones” Hook are heading for a wedding.
Once Upon a Time Shake-Up: Will Finale Write In Cast Changes?
The confirmation comes on the heels of this Sunday’s episode, in which some of Peter Pan’s magic from Neverland combined with powerful Pixie flower petals allowed Hook (played by Colin O’Donoghue) to return to Storybrooke, where he and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) happily reunited and reaffirmed their plan to walk down the aisle. (Elsewhere, Snow and Charming were rescued from the sleeping curse when Regina got the idea to “dilute” its power by having family and friends also partake in the spell.)
TVLine was on set for the filming of the wedding episode, on March 7 at the show’s soundstage in Vancouver. Many more, exclusive details will be served up as the Big Day draws near, but for right now, here are five things to know:
♥ Airing Sunday, May 7 at 8/7c, the wedding episode is titled “The Song in Your Heart” — because it is also the series’
episode (which TVLine was the first to tell you about back in January).
♥ The musical episode features seven original songs penned by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, with arrangements provided by
‘s long-time composer Mark Isham. In addition to Morrison and O’Donoghue, Lana Parrilla, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas and Rebecca Mader are among the cast members you will hear sing.
♥ The episode has been in the works since last summer, when
co-creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis met with Zachary and Weiner. “We’ve been planning it for a long time,” says Kitsis.
RELATEDOnce Upon a Time Shake-Up: Who’s in Talks to Return for Season 7?
♥ Yes, the wedding is poised to mark Emma and Hook’s affirmation of love, but even more importantly, it signals how far the series’ central protaganist has come in six seasons, having first arrived on the scene with her emotional walls raised high and firm. “For us,” says Kitsis, “the most important thing [about the wedding] is that it was intimate and that you really understood that this was a real milestone in Emma’s growth.” One other goal? “Hopefully to make some people cry!”
♥ Yet despite such best intentions, the ceremony miiiiight not go off without a hitch. As Horowitz reminds, “Weddings on the TV series
traditionally are fraught with unexpected circumstances. And this is no different.”

So happy to hear this and watch my favourite couple Emma and Hook and characters get a fairytale wedding, They deserve their happy ending and happy beginnings!!
So NOT happy to hear this, it should’ve been between her & Neal, her actual soulmate not this ugly, annoying & dumb pirate. Hope this shipperish wedding ends in a bloodbath!
Seriously, get over it. He’s long gone. Move on.
Neal was so, so SO not Emma’s soulmate. Who the heck sends their soulmate to jail for THEIR crime, refuses to come find them after having multiple opportunities, then screams in their face when that person finds THEM again? I really honestly wonder what show these people are watching…..
No kidding I still can’t believe there are Swanfire shippers still out there. Neal was a jerk who when Emma found him was ENGAGED, didn’t believe Emma when something was clearly up then after he finds out “hey this chick I’m engaged to is a psycho and tried to kill me” rather than having an emotional journey of getting over the woman it’s like a switch flipped and “hey let’s chase Emma again”
Also, Baelfire hated magic, I’m not sure how you can be soulmates when you despise the very essence of someone (just sayin)
He hated DARK magic. There’s no evidence at all that he hated magic all together.
Seriously? After the way Neal treated her? Setting her up to take the fall for him, statutory rape, and the things he says to her in the bar during the Manhattan episode (can’t argue that, it’s canon)?
And to correct your assumption, to graduate from a Naval Academy (it’s college/university) and become an officer requires smarts.
So…I get the preference for Neal (I don’t share it but to each his own), and Killian’s made some dumb decisions so I can even see the “dumb and annoying” part (again I don’t find him to be so, but whatever). But ugly?? Do you not have eyes?!
Rofl, u little delusional fangirls never cease to impress me with your stupidity hahaha what can i say other then u all should enjoy ur crumbling shipperish ship while it last, it will eventually stumble upon cancellation rock & there’s no recovery after that.
Emma and Neal are not/were not soul mates. They were never true love. And if you wanna go low – Neal is pretty darn ugly! In fact, he is the only non-attractive man who’s ever been on OUAT! I can’t believe that guy even gets acting jobs, based on how he looks like a homeless person!
I agree with the comment about Neal. That character is the embodiment of selfless and heroicism (though I don’t agree entirely with the harsh criticism of Colin, who seems like a delightful person). What i think is the best thing about the CS shippers’ hate for Neal, is that it’s entirely baseless. They give the spiel about how Neal sent her to jail but A & E tweeted repeatedly that he didn’t know anything about it until it was too late. Unlike Hook who, you know, left Emma to starve to death in a cell, far more recently than Neal hurt Emma.
I detested Neal and am glad he was written off, #teamCaptSwan!
Ah, they did First Date! I liked the soundtrack. That’s cool. Wonder if they did more than one song (I was surprised Pasek and Paul only did one of the originals in The Flash).
These are the same guys that wrote the music for First Date?! I LOVE that show! Nothing but high hopes now :)
Still think this so called “wedding” will not go as intended, if anything the fact that’s happening on a musical episode and has been SO spoiled is an indication it won’t be as good as they are trying to sell it. You don’t need to be a tv show expert to know those two things I mentioned set off MANY alarms. Wedding spoilers aren’t supposed to set off alarms like this one.
Plus a wedding on this show never goes so well… so…
Omg!!! So excited for the wedding I think it will be epic!! Emma and captain hook have been through so much together and they have proven they are true love. I think Adam And Eddie are great writers . Last night’s episode reminded me why this show is so special which is why I want season 7 and I am rsvp +2 love this show ❤
Yes I’m watching, love this show and want to praise it before all the so-called “fans” start complainig about how predictable it is and how they are so over this show. Well I’m not, and I hope we’ll see Mr. and Mrs. Jones in SEASON 7!!!
I hope everyone including you will see the long awaited cancellation of this drivel that calls itself OUAT. Even if they renew it, it’s going to be last season probably with reduced amount of episodes.
Why hope for something that’ll sadden others? Let it go and let the fans who are excited have their happiness. Don’t rain on their parade!
OUATOneOfTheWorstShows, the only drivel is your verbal vomit! If you don’t like the show DON”T WATCH IT!!!! As far as I know NOBODY is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to watch it! Go back to your miserable life and find something that makes you happy and stop trying to ruin things for other people!
Ever heard about different opinions, snowflake?! Guess not. And your comment doesn’t even make any logical sense whatsoever, i’ve ruined your experience of watching your precious dumb show just cuz i said that i hope it cancelled?! Lmao, the show doesn’t have any sorts of bright future whatsoever, S8, if it unfortunately happens, is going to be the last, just watch and see what happens.
Just one (1) user name per IP address, thank you so much! –Mgmt.

I’m not over it either, I’ve loved it since the pilot & look forward to it every week, bring on more Once!
On the one hand, I love musicals. On the other hand, I dislike Hook and have no desire to see him happily married. I haven’t watched OUAT since 5×03, but I would really like to hear Lana Parrilla belt out something like “No Good Deed” or “Last Midnight.”
If this series goes out on a big fairy tale wedding, I’ll be happy.
bummer I was hoping Rumple would get a song, guess not
Robert Carlyle has basically indicated they’d have to drag him into a musical episode kicking and screaming. Hopefully that means he WON’T be involved. Frankly, the only one I want to see singing at all is Josh Dallas. He has an AMAZING voice.
So this wedding won’t go off without a hitch? Of course not. God forbid the writers let us have one truly happy episode with this show. To to ruin Hook and Emma’s wedding will be the ultimate screw up they have made in this show yet.
Absolutely awful. The Capt Rapist ship is one of the worst things to happen to this show. Retcons, rape culture rewarding, abuse. This show should have ended years ago.
What a disgusting comment!! have some manners and respect. And labelling things falsely
Hook has done bad things sure, but he’s never rapped anyone on the show. If you wanna hate Hook go right ahead but don’t make up stuff. You know who actually make the argument about rape, Regina when she controlled Grahm’s heart and Zalina when she was pretending to be Marion.
The only recon was Mary Margaret visiting “John Doe” David in the hospital. She didn’t start to do that until after Emma came to Storybrooke. The curse lasted 28 years. We have only seen glimpses of what happened during that time Filling in details that were previously unknown is not a recon.Other than the hospital visits nothing contradicted what we knew before.
In the episode that showed us the first day of the curse, we do see Snow visiting David in the hospital and Regina overjoyed by it. Later after some years we see Regina seeing Snow visiting David again and it doesn’t have the same effect on her. Regina feels empty and things like Snow and David not being together don’t give her joy any more and she ends up adopting Henry.
You seem to be watching a different show from the rest of us. Please explain what you are interpreting as “rape culture” in regard to Capt. Hook. I’ve never seen him take advantage of any female. There are only three places where I’ve seen it on this show. Zelena with Robin, Regina with Graham and Neal with underage Emma.
When Emma was getting him drunk he made a comment about how it was usually he who did that, but it’s unclear how seriously we should take it.
He was a pirate, read about real ones, they were not much for flowers & chocolates. He’s not that man anymore, in Snow Drifts Killian is ashamed of that man.
He’s still a man that sucks & such an obnoxious character that ruined the already dumb show even further. NEAL>>>>>Cap’n Shmook
When the heck did Hook rape anyone? I know Regina, Zelena and Neal did…..btw if any ship on this how would be “rape culture rewarding” it would be Neal getting to be together with the girl he took advantage under and impregnated while she was underaged….
For real are we still on that nonsense? Emma was out stealing CARS. And was hardly underage (even the creators have shown that they have no freaking clue on how long pregnancies are…they have said that Emma was 18…but then based on everything else she had to be 17). And who knows how old Neal actually was at the time. Well over 200 but he was like 13 or 14 forever. Who knows how old his real physical age was at the time they were together.
You Hook haters make me laugh every time you comment something like this. You claim there is “rape culture” and “abuse” but have no real evidence to back it up with. You people are sad like if you hate the character so much stop watching the show and trying to ruin it for those who do enjoy it. smh.
People HAVE been stopping watching the show. In droves. The ratings have been plummeting.
We love this show and have been watching all these years, finally a wedding.
I just hope this is fun, and not full of retconning/plot-moving. Let it be a sort of “stand alone” so it can just be fun! There can still be mishaps…there always are. Just hope they do NOT involve BF in any way…
I’m sure BF will be invoked somehow, but I agree about making this more of a stand-alone ep. #1 it’s a musical & #2 it’s a (highly anticipated by some) wedding. Usually I complain about “filler” eps but I’d be perfectly fine with this one not pushing the “final battle” plot forward. The wedding will move the character development forward, which is plenty.
Wish I could like your comment more than once :)
I’m just ready for this show to wrap up, sadly I’m ready for the final battle/chapter
I have lost all interest in this show. I never did care for Hook. This turning into a joke.
Oh god! I’m so ready I’m not gonna cry I’m gonna sob. I already checked if I have work that day, cause no way in hell will I miss Captain Swan wedding.
Hook and Emma are the only reason I am still watching. The last night’s episode was so good for CS! Hope for the EPIC WEDDING for my EPIC couple!!!
I guess I am on the other side of this- I don’t want Emma and Hook to get married because I don’t think she is good enough for him! Since however I don’t think they will write me into the show to steal his heart I will have to watch them get hitched. Oh well at least she didn’t end up with Ted because she was insufferable on that show too :-)
It’s about time…….they deserve a happy ending. Can’t wait to watch the wedding episode
Finally. I have been expecting a wedding for them
I loved these two from the start so wouldn’t miss it! Last nights episode was really solid though I was slightly disappointed that Emma didn’t (properly) get to visit Neverland again. I even liked Snow & Charming, Emma really has made peace in her role as the Saviour, she completely accepted what they did to ensure that her destiny was fulfilled. That was a lovely scene where they got to see her as a little girl, Josh Dallas’ acting was especially touching. I like that they didn’t dwell on the whole Killian killed David’s Father thing but it was only about fifty years ago, I think he would still feel something about that. I’m thinking the wedding is going to take place in the Wish Realm, it just makes sense to me, an idealistic place would suit a musical, Zelena episode next week, not my favourite character but hey ho.. I’m also thinking Emma is going to do a spell/make a wish to make her parents forget her to get them out of harms way, thus freeing up Josh & Ginny as series regulars next season.
Heck yes I will RSVP! And on my wedding anniversary and everything?! This is the greatest news ever!
The wedding episode IS the musical episode?! That’ll be too much for my heart to handle! Wishing they weren’t one in the same just so my feels could be spread out over 2 eps. Me RIP May 7
Put my RSVP for the wedding at Yes, plus 1 ;). So excited they are finally getting married and doing so during the musical episode which sounds like so much fun. For the past few seasons this show has been so dark and depressing – I’m glad they are finally taking time out for a little happiness (I’m sure there will be some drama added in there as well) and hope!
SO FREAKING HAPPY TO HEAR THIS. I’D STOPPED WATCHING BC EVERYTHING KEPT GOING WRONG FOR SO MANY, BUT THEY’RE MY FAVORITE COUPLE …. I’VE GOT TO GET STARTED I’VE GOT MORE THAN 2 SEASONS TO CATCH UP ON!!!
If they’re your favorite couple, how could you have stopped watching? I understand being disappointed in certain storylines, but you don’t give up on your OTP. Start catching up!
I thought this too, two seasons behind, you’ve missed a-lot! :)
Been a great build up for Emma and Hook as a couple and individually as characters too. True Love is never easy and they have fought so much for their love and each other. Catch up :)
Heck yes to the RSVP, been waiting 4 seasons for this!
sooooooo happy about this. such a big fan…..
FINALLY!!!! Yes, I will DEFINITELY be “attending” the wedding!!!
CAN’T WAIT to see the GORGEOUS SPECTACULAR CS wedding. I’m happy Emma gets to get her HAPPY ENDING w/ a man who LOVES, CHERISHES, and RESPECTS her. She deserves it.
PS. Looks like the bitter betsy TROLLS decided to come out of their caves to mouthfoam and complain that their fanfics and head-canons DIDN’T come true and that Emma DIDN’T end up w/ their creepy, misogynistic, pedophilic favs.
God this is WRETCHED. A Captain Swan wedding AND a musical episode all rolled into one? At least I know one episode I can skip. How far this show has fallen!
I have RVPD for this wedding since Tallahassee.
Can someone please explain to me how Gepetto was there when they all drank the potion to share in the sleeping curse? Didn’t he die in a previous season? I must have missed something! Thanks for any help!
Oh dear – ok, that explains it – what did happen to him? He has not been around for a while…
I love the poster!!! A hook (that also looks like a swan shape ;) ) and two wedding rings <3
I have been watching OUOAT since it began, I love it and hope it goes on for years. I’ve watched Henry grow up. BTW I am 67 years old.
Isn’t that the wonderful thing about this show? It appeals to such a broad range of people, I was enticed by the Disney element, Disney was my childhood, imagining how life could be. Now I’m thirty & a hopeless romantic & I get to see how Adam & Eddy imagine the characters I grew up with are like now, pure magic!
