With season 6 about to premiere in just over two days, I decided that it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and choose 100 moments that Emma and Hook made us swoon in seasons 2-5. Let’s begin!
(Also, I have to apologize. My original plan was gifs, but each time I went to upload the gifs or add them to the post, WordPress would freeze and crash, so I resorted to a photo collage for each moment. Hope you still enjoy!)
1. (The Doctor) Emma and Hook meet for the first time in anything but a romantic scenario.
