We talk about Captain Swan in season 2 post-Tallahassee, plus some random stuff (for example: we disagree about whether or not Mad Swan had chemistry!). And we tell you about what OTPs, other than Captain Swan, we are looking forward to in this upcoming fall tv season.

Hey guys! So we’re having a trend attempt on Sunday, since ABC is re-airing “There’s No Place Like Home”. We’ll be tweeting the words “Captain Swan Movie” (NO HASHTAGS, just Captain Swan Movie) during the episode. We’ll be starting at 8PM EST. That’s 2am in Central Europe, and 1am in the UK. Here's a website that can help you figure out what time it is in your timezone.
Some trending tips!! Please feel free to add your own:
Hook & Emma + what even is personal space???
Just because you believe something doesn’t make it true.
TVF: Is there a particular character that they attach themselves to in the show?
EK: I think you’re going to see that Elsa and Emma are going to have a friendship that we’re going to see play out. I think we’re going to realize that they have a lot in common but the Frozen arc is definitely going to be affecting everybody. But at the same time, for Once Upon a Time fans, we are still going to see Rumple and Belle and we know that he’s lying to her about the knife. And we have Marian, who just came back to thwart Regina’s happy ending just when the Charmings have a baby.
We are going to be turning Frozen but not at the expense of the other stories. We’re going to be telling all of them. So, you know, Once fans who think that Frozen is going to take over can relax and Frozen fans can also be excited because they’re going to see Hans and Christophe and Elsa and Anna and the trolls.
TVF: I’ve made it very clear that I’m a Captain Swan fan, so what can you say about that relationship moving forward?
AH: I would say as far as Emma and Hook go, it’s a similar thing. The show is not something we want to turn into two people watching Netflix. They’re going to have their challenges. There’s going to be an exploration of Hook’s character that involves the past that we’ve seen of his already, that he’s dealing with. Emma’s going to be dealing with her own past as well. And the two of them, while taking big steps forward, are going to also be having to deal with some roadblocks and obstacles that are unique to their situation. But the two of them do have feelings for each other that we’ve seen grow, obviously, and those feelings are going to continue to be explored.
In the finale, Emma and Captain Hook seemed to be taking their relationship to the next level. Is season four their attempt at being a “normal” couple?
Horowitz: There’s no chance that Emma — the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming — and Captain Hook will ever be a normal couple, but their feelings obviously reached a new boiling point at the end of last season. And we’re going to continue to explore those feelings, and we’re going to continue to explore how they can or can’t get closer.
Kitsis: But in a real way. Emma has had a lifetime of putting up walls, so one kiss does not mean love and [let’s] go register at Pottery Barn. As for Hook, we’re going to see some old rivalries. We can’t forget that as much as he loves Emma and has done the right thing for her, we’ve seen him do horrible things in the past because he’s a pirate. He and Rumpelstiltskin unfortunately are going to find their detente coming to an end.
