Presented as a good-looking heartless pirate, Hook is described as being 'more despicable, more evil' than Rumplestiltskin.
ABC unveils a preview for the fourth episode of "Once Upon a Time" season 2. It highlights the introduction of "one of the greatest villains of all time" who is none other than Captain Hook.
Described as being "more despicable, more evil" than Rumplestiltskin, the famed pirate is presented as a good-looking young man instead of the usual scruffy portrayal of the character. Tackling the role is Irish actor Colin O'Donoghue.
In addition to introducing Captain Hook, the next episode of the twisted fairytale series will see Belle, whose disgust over Mr. Gold's continuing thirst for power comes to a head. She threatens to leave him if he can't change his evil ways.
Meanwhile, the dwarves pick up their axes and try to find fairy dust in the Storybrooke mine, and a reunion with an old acquaintance could prove to be Belle's undoing. Back in the fairytale land that was, Rumplestiltskin attempts to save his wife, Milah, from being kidnapped by a band of cutthroat pirates.
To be titled "The Crocodile", the upcoming outing of "Once Upon a Time" will air Sunday, October 21 at 9/7c on ABC.
