When Captain Hook on “Once Upon a Time” first decided to take his revenge on Rumpelstiltskin in Storybrooke, we have a feeling that he thought it would at least be marginally easier than it is going to be. After all, how could the man have even more power in this world than he did back in the fairytale land prior to the curse being placed upon so much of the land?
As it turns out, though, “Mr. Gold” is still going to be able to use magic in this other world, and as actor Colin O’Donoghue tells TVLine’s “Spoiler Alert,” this is going to create a rather interesting problem for him when it comes to how he wants to take on this notorious villain, who he was obviously hoping would be stripped of some of his power:
“Hook obviously wants to get his revenge on Rumpelstiltskin … When he arrives in Storybrooke, he doesn’t have much interaction with the people of Storybrooke straight off. He’s kind of stealthy about how he goes about his business. He realizes that magic is still in Storybrooke pretty early on, and therefore Rumple is still very powerful. He has to be very careful about hos he tries to go about his revenge.”
As for how Cora interacts with the people of the town, that much is still unclear given that like with Regina, it may take her a little bit of time to figure out how to handle magic within this world. If that is the case, it would not surprise us if she also tries to lay low for at least the first little while.
