Cause in the beginnings of TMS, as well as TMM, she's a brunette. I guess sandy brown/brown blonde would be the appropriate term, but she's a natural brunette as opposed to a platinum blonde. She looks better blonde, obviously, but her family wouldn't be blondes. Yeah, I heard/saw the promo for the next episode and was like ***. Haven't seen both yet (cause knowing hulu, it'll take an extra 2 hours to watch 2 hours of show), though it'll be nice to finally see the showdown between Hook and Rumple, especially when this has been a very long time in coming. And did they actually answer how the heck she managed to turn Hook? I didn't think you could turn someone into the Dark One without, you know, killing the previous Dark One. I did have a thought though - so, now we have a Dark Couple with Emma and Hook, which seems to be the dark version of Rumple and Belle. I have to wonder if someone is going to ask why Rumple hadn't thought to make Belle a Dark One as well. The twist is interesting, but ugh. The reasoning is ridiculous - Emma is doing all of this because of Hook. Honestly. And to keep him safe, she turns him into a Dark One because...she's on crack? Again, hoping that our 'heroes' come to realize that at least Rumple took the curse to save his son and that everything he did was to save his family; Emma's motives are obviously to get nookie cause...***. Hey, did baby Zelena get borned?
