A sneak peek at Season 5 depicted Emma killing a peasant, while Jennifer Morrison teased: "Emma went through a lot in her life. She had a tough childhood. She’s had to overcome a lot of things. She’s tried to be the bigger person. Now that she’s tethered to the darkness, she’s free of that … She’s going to face the darkness in herself and figure out how to overcome it."

Rumple will be in a coma when we next see him, but: "The incarnation of Rumple this time around is slightly different," Robert Carlyle said. "He’s lost his mantle as the Dark One, but that’s not to say he doesn’t have that trickery about him. He still has that."

And Hook may have a connection to the new characters. Camelot: "Camelot exists in a parallel timeline," executive producer Adam Horowitz explained. "It’s existed. How we portray it and show you, it’s existed long ago, short ago and maybe in the future. It may have co-existed with [when Hook was in the Royal Navy]."
