VANCOUVER, BC. It seems like so long ago, but "Once Upon a Time" actually began with Jennifer Swan's Emma Swan on a date.
Romantically it wasn't a successful liaison, but it established Emma's skip-tracer as a non-nonsense woman with no time for fairy tales. Eventually, she made time.
Another Emma Swan date last season, with Chris Gorham's yet-to-monkey-out Walsh, was used to show audiences how memory-free Emma was adapting to single life in New York City.
This Sunday (October 19), Emma is back on the prowl, but as you can see from the picture accompanying this story, fans are going to see a much different side of Emma's romantic life.
After several seasons of flirting and wooing and resisting and that awkward thing where Emma lost her powers by performing mouth-to-mouth on him, plus a big kiss and then more flirting and wooing, Emmy and reformed pirating bad-boy Hook are going out on a date.
And no, they're not going to Granny's.
