Now let's find out who murdered my father.

David to Hook

"Murder Most Foul" is the twelfth episode of Season Six of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Jerome Schwartz & Jane Espenson, and directed by Morgan Beggs. It is the one hundred and twenty-third episode of the series overall, and premiered on March 12, 2017.

Synopsis

Before Hook takes the next step in his relationship with Emma, he wants to make sure David sees him as more than just a pirate. So when David asks Hook to help him uncover the truth about his father’s death, Hook agrees. Meanwhile, Regina works to acclimate Robin to life in Storybrooke, but soon discovers he has a dark side that makes the task much more complicated than she anticipated.[2]

Recap

Deleted Scenes

Originally, donkeys wearing hats were set to appear in the episode, a reference to The Adventures of Pinocchio and its Disney adaptation, where all boys sent to the Land of Toys (renamed Pleasure Island for the Disney film) are turned into donkeys. The donkeys were brought in for the episode, dressed up in headgear and everything and filmed in an enclosure in front of a green-screen,[3] but this ended up being cut from the episode.

respect to this of yours; we are now in the first country
of the world, and without doubt the customs of the place
must be in the highest degree judicious. Wherefore your
worship may be pleased to conduct us to the place where
this gentleman of whom you have spoken is to be found.
I cannot but suppose, from what you say, that he is
much honoured, of great power and influence, of very
generous nature, and, above all, highly accomplished in
the profession."


"Truly, Sir," rejoined Rincon, "all this is Hebrew to us;
we know no more about it than we do of flying."
"Let us be jogging, then," replied the new-comer, "and
on the way I will explain to you these and other things,
which it is requisite you should know as pat as bread to
mouth;" and, accordingly, he explained to them a whole
vocabulary of that thieves' Latin which they call Germ-
anesco, or Gerigonza, and which their guide used in
the course of his lecture,--by no means a short one, for
the distance they had to traverse was of considerable
length.

  • By the end of the episode, while under the sleeping curse, David has been seen taking deep breaths, even though it is said that one cannot show any sign of life under that curse. ("An Apple Red as Blood")

The Rings: As we were interviewing the on-screen couple, we could not help noticing the massive sparkler on Morrison's finger, which was freshly accompanied by a unique, slightly mismatched wedding band. "Oh yeah, that's the ring! He's got good taste, this one," Morrison said while gesturing to O'Donoghue when we audibly "Ooh-ed!" mid-sentence. "You actually picked them, didn't you?" "Mmmhmm," O'Donoghue confirmed. "I picked the engagement ring and then they showed me this [wedding band] and I was like, 'Yeah, that'll do.'" To which Morrison added, "They're very inclusive with us around here. It's really nice." Kitsis and Horowitz explained that they have always encouraged the actors to "take ownership of their characters," and allowing them to select things like the right gowns or props is a natural extension of that. "I think our props department is awesome and I'm sure that they had some great rings," Horowitz said. "Nobody knows the character of Hook better than Colin, so of course he'd be the one to figure out what it should be."”
