ONCE UPON A TIME Mid-Season Finale Sneak Peeks: The Dark Ones Are Coming

Gold and Hook have a major war of words in this first of two new sneak peek clips from Once Upon a Time’s mid-season finale.

The episode, titled “Swan Song,” sees doom imminent (ABC’s words!) when all of the Dark Ones target a living soul for sacrifice so that they can return to the realm of the living.

Should Mary Margaret, David and the rest of the heroes to spend their last fleeting moments enjoying the company of their loved ones, as Gold suggests, or is it too late for a final hasty plan from the heroes?

We’re told that this last episode of the season will see Hook’s actions devastating Emma in a way no one saw coming. But will it be Hook or Dark Hook who will be responsible for delivering that blow?

In the first clip below, Dark Hook taunts Gold over Belle’s departure and his all consuming love of power. However when an exasperated Gold dismisses Hook’s powers as mere ‘parlor tricks’ the Dark One teases a more shocking demonstration to come.

Meanwhile, in clip 2, a broken-hearted Emma, against the advice of her friends and family, determines to find and destroy Hook before he can complete his resurrection mission.

It seems Emma is convinced there is nothing remaining of Killian in this latest incarnation, and that he should be stopped at any cost, but is she entirely correct? And just who’s is the living soul the Dark Ones require to make their leap to our world?

We have a feeling the finale will serve up more than one surprise.
