Artist: Hurts featuring Kylie Minogue
Even with such desire to stay at sea, a pirate will always return to the land to sustain, and the only thing Killian Jones ever needed to sustain himself was the Princess Aurora. However, not even the fastest ship in the land can out-sail a cursed fate and there is a violet storm on the horizon. Meanwhile in the present day, Storybrooke’s Jane Doe awakens when change rolls into town in a yellow bug, and with lack of any memory to teach her better, she finds herself solitude from her dreams in the church and the familiarity of its very confused pastor.
"I’m as shady as the blue fairy…"
So it’s perfectly legit for Snow to try and stab Mulan with an arrow over her family, yet Aurora trying to protect her unborn child from the Wicked Witch, after both hers and her mother’s previous experience with Maleficent (yet another witch) makes her a terrible person? Out of context it would be complete backwards character development but the writers have a lot to explain about Aurora. From what we know from here, can we really blame her after magic has left such a looming presence over her family, for wanting to protect the only family she has left?
You know what a pink gown means? They may be filming Aurora and Phillip flashbacks, OMG. If so…. Maleficent is in it too, right? That’s what I’ve been waiting for.
With the whole Oz storyline, I doubt it. The writers tend to ignore recurring characters (more so than usual) when a new character is thrown in. There’s still a chance, but the pink dress Sarah mentioned was probably the one she was wearing from the stills. If you look at the one where she and Phillip are running, you can see she’s wearing a light pink dress under her cape.
A princess should never fall in love with the sea.
She hadn’t planned on it, confronting him like this. But then he had dropped out of the sky - quite literally of course - in a world that was no longer his to control. Snow had been more than forthcoming about the events of ‘Storybrooke’ before it perished, particularly the tale of the apparent redemption of a certain leather-bound pirate and for a moment she could almost believe it. But the soft drumming of her long-restored heartbeat reminded her with clarity, of the man who had rejoined Cora with a crooked smirk and her heart in his hands with all but a ribbon around it. Killian Jones was not a hero and nor would he ever be.

Sleeping Hook Week | Day Six
He wouldn’t be a man of honor if he dared pretend to be anything more than what he was; a pirate first and a man second. Women like Aurora however were beyond that - beyond pirates and vagabonds and eyes laced with selfishness and greed - and it didn’t take imagination to know he would never be worth one like her. But there were women like Aurora and then there is Aurora. He has been so many things - a villain, a duke, a brother, a hero - but he can’t pretend to be anything more than he is. Not anymore. He couldn’t pretend to be a better man with her because unlike with everyone else he didn’t have to. He already is.

Sleeping Hook Week | Day One
guys, my friend asked me a question idk the answer so maybe if you know? or we both missing something.
Simple. The writers messed up so they created two Sleeping Beauties. The one Regina refers to is in fact Aurora’s mother - the original Sleeping Beauty (something the writers have already confirmed). Maleficent apparently cast the same curse on Aurora but I’m guessing she made the alterations of casting a curse on Phillip as well and sent him to China so the curse couldn’t have been as easily broken.
He tells himself he stole her away first - pirates are drawn to beautiful things, you see - and he’ll march to the gallows before he admits otherwise. But the truth has always been beneath the surface like the bed of sand below the ocean. She stole him away the moment she smiled. But the greatest treasures always come with a curse.
