Once Upon A Time Preview: “Dark Waters”

More and more characters from my childhood keep popping up in Once Upon A Time – this time Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. And, considering we know only just one other Captain, this episode is clearly going to be Killian Jones, aka Captain Hook heavy.

Not that I’m complaining. Nope, there’s no complaining here. Bring on all the Killian Jones backstory.

Just, please …don’t ruin Nemo while you’re at it. That’s all I ask.

Here’s the official information we have about the episode, titled: “Dark Waters.”

Once Upon A Time (6×06) – “Dark Waters

Sunday, October 30th. 8/7c. ABC


  • Captain Nemo. And his good intentions. Because he has good intentions, right?
  • Jaladdin. And what might be. After all, their romance has barely gotten off the ground and now Jasmine wants Aladdin to help her save AgrabahDuty before love once again?
  • Henry. Will  he let the EQ’s taunts get to him or will he do the adults in this show one better and actually attempt to talk to Hook?





Emma tries to convince Aladdin to work with Jasmine to help Agrabah, while Regina teams up with Snow and David to free Archie from Zelena. The Evil Queen sows suspicion between Henry and Hook, even as Mr. Gold reminds her of his most important lesson. Meanwhile, in the past, Hook finds himself kidnapped by the mysterious Captain Nemo and held captive inside his legendary submarine, the Nautilus.


  1. Colin O’Donoghue will look just as good wet as he does dry. Maybe even better.
  2. His hair game will still be better than ours.
  3. Snow will utter the word family at least three times.
  4. So will Nemo.
  5. Henry won’t go to school.

Enjoy “Dark Waters,” Oncers, and join us later as we live-tweet the episode on @Fangirlishness
