Once Upon a Time: 6 Things we know about Hook's dad
There are always new faces popping up on Once Upon a Time, and it seems the show is finally going to introduce a villain-turned-hero's father. That's right, Captain Hook's dad is making his way to the show, and now fans have a face to put with the character.
On Wednesday, Entertainment Weekly announced that Adam Croasdell will play Hook's dad. Croasdell is best known for his role on EastEnders, but he's also appeared on Supernatural, NCIS and Hot in Cleveland, among many others. There aren't too many details being released about his character, but here are six things that have been revealed.
1. He'll appear before the winter break
As OUAT creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis announced at New York Comic Con, Hook's father will show up in the episode before the long winter break.
2. He abandoned Hook
The biggest detail fans know about Hook's dad is that he abandoned him in the middle of the night. It doesn't sound like Hook and his dad had the best relationship.
3. His name could be Davy Jones
Hook's dad's name has yet to be unveiled, but seeing as Hook's real name is Killian Jones, does that mean his father is Davy Jones?
4. He'll appear in flashbacks
Hook's dad won't show up in real time or in Storybrooke (or so it seems), but he will be seen in flashbacks, TVLine reports.
5. His episode will feature a Hook/Evil Queen adventure
In addition to the flashbacks, the episode will include an "adventure with Hook and the Evil Queen," Horowitz told TVLine. Anyone else excited to see Hook and Regina joining forces?
6. He'll appear alongside child Hook
Hook's dad will appear in an episode "examining the character's childhood," TVLine also reports. Kitsis also confirmed, "We’ll see Hook as a little boy." Fans know how cute Hook is as an adult, so just imagine him as a child.
Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8/7c on ABC.
