Robin of Locksley, better known as Robin Hood and also known as Thief[2] and the Fourth Man,[3] is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. He débuts in the nineteenth episode of the second season of Once Upon a Time. He is portrayed by guest star Tom Ellis in Season Two, and by starring cast member Sean Maguire since Season Three. He is the main reality version of Robin of Locksley.

Robin Hood is based on the titular character from the Robin Hood ballads.


Before First Curse

In the Enchanted Forest, during Queen Regina's unhappy marriage to King Leopold, a fairy named Tinker Bell is convinced she can help her obtain a second chance at happiness by attaining true love. Using pixie dust, Tinker Bell leads Regina to a tavern. From the outside looking in, she points out the dust has left a glowing effect on a man with a lion tattoo on his arm, who is Regina's true love. Because the man, Robin of Locksley, has his back turned away from the window Tinker Bell and Regina are peering into, they are unable to see his face. Tinker Bell urges her to go in, but shortly after the fairy leaves, Regina becomes afraid and flees, without meeting her destined love. ("Quite a Common Fairy")

As a petty thief, Robin steals a horse from a poor farmer despite already having two horses of his own. While camping for the night, he awakens to find the farmer's daughter, Marian, aiming an arrow at him. She tells him the horse is important her family's livelihood and, without it, they won't survive. Realizing the error of his ways, he later forfeits his two horses to Marian and her family. The pair later fall in love and marry. ("The Snow Queen", "Heart of Gold")

Leaving his thieving days behind after marrying Marian, Robin opens a tavern business with his new wife. They face trouble from the Sheriff of Nottingham, who demands tax payments in two days or Robin will be jailed and their business closed. The Sheriff further threatens that Marian, left desperate without her husband, will surely come to him for favors. Later, the Dark One, Rumplestiltskin, agrees to give Robin golden tipped arrows if he fetches him an elixir of the wounded heart from Oz. Arriving there by a portal, Robin frees Will, who promises not to alert a guard about his plans if he brings him some of the elixir as well. Wearing a guard's uniform, Robin sneaks into the Emerald Palace, where he begins filling two elixir vials. When the Wicked Witch surprises him, he drops the second dose before saluting her, not knowing her guards aren't supposed to speak to her. Even more suspicious now, Zelena demands to know why he is stealing from her. With his cover blown, Robin grabs an enchanted bow to fire at her, but she creates two more illusions of herself to confuse him. As Zelena realizes Rumplestiltskin sent him, she dissipates the illusions and hurls a fireball at him. Robin dodges, letting his arrow go as he does, causing it to fly around the room until it hits a steam engine. With the room fogged up, Robin escapes and returns to Will, lying about not getting the elixir. However, upon learning Will wanted the potion to heal heartbreak over his sister's death, Robin secretly slips him the elixir. On his return home, Robin is backed up by his Merry Men as he defies the Sheriff, stealing his gold, and giving it to the poor. Renaming himself Robin Hood, he shows Marian a six-leaf clover from Oz, which he'll use to glamour himself to keep the Dark One from recognizing him. Robin decides to be a thief again, except to only steal for the needy, as Marian agrees to stay as long as she can be with him. ("Heart of Gold")

With his group of Merry Men, Robin Hood pulls off a scheme on the road to stop a wealthy man's carriage and steal money and jewels. Will, their newest recruit, procures a chest of goods for them. Robin accepts him into the group with a bit of advice: that Merry Men are not thieves and do not steal for themselves, but for others. Will proposes the next place they should go is Maleficent's castle, which is rumored to contain enough gold to feed the whole kingdom. Robin dislikes the plan since the expedition is incredibly dangerous, but is tempted into accepting by both the amount of gold they will receive to help the poor as well as the fact Maleficent is currently away from the castle. At some point before or after this, he tells Will about Marian and how she changed him into becoming a person who will only steal from the rich to provide for the poor. Inside the castle, Robin warns his group against taking anything that is not necessary. With their mission a success, they return to camp to celebrate. Suddenly, the displeased voice of Maleficent booms all around the campsite stating she cares little if they keep her gold, but demands the other item be returned or there will be consequences. An angry Robin calls the thief among his men to step forward, but no one does. That night, after catching Will sneaking away, he realizes his comrade had stolen something from Maleficent. When Robin questions if he did it for a woman, Will guiltily looks down. Disappointed, he allows Will to go with the warning that his punishment for stealing will come in the near future. ("Forget Me Not", "The Snow Queen")

Humiliated after Robin Hood makes him the laughingstock of Nottingham, the Sheriff begins harboring a grudge against the thief for stealing the woman he loves. As the couple continues to elude the Sheriff, Marian becomes pregnant and falls deathly ill. To keep Rumplestiltskin from recognizing him, Robin uses the six-leaf clover from Oz to glamour himself as another man and breaks into the Dark One's castle, risking his life to steal a wand to heal Marian. Rumplestiltskin catches him in the act and Robin Hood fires an arrow from his enchanted bow, which eventually hits the Dark One in the chest. Triumphantly, he prepares to leave the castle, but an unharmed Rumplestiltskin stops him. Imprisoned, Robin endures torture for days on end. Rumplestiltskin's household servant, Belle sympathizes for him, and out of mercy, she sets him free. As Robin Hood escapes, he takes the wand and manages to heal Marian to full health. While the two are rejoicing in a lover's reunion, a stray arrow shot by Rumplestiltskin misses Robin and hits the carriage, startling both of them, which hastens their getaway on horseback. ("Lacey", "Heart of Gold")

Some time after this, Robin meets Belle again and they have other adventures together. The latter also finds out about him being disguised while invading the castle.[4]

Later, Marian gives birth to their son, Roland. At some point after this, she dies, with Robin blaming himself for "inadvertently putting her in harm's way during the job". The circumstances of how he comes to believe this is uncertain, especially since Marian's actual death was an execution on the Queen's orders, and it's not known if he knew how she died. ("Quite a Common Fairy", "Witch Hunt", "Snow Drifts")

When Emma travels to the Enchanted Forest and inadvertently saves Marian from execution, she decides to take her to present day Storybrooke so her presence won't alter anything in the past. However, Zelena secretly interferes by killing Marian and assuming her form. In this timeline, Robin Hood still comes to believe his wife is dead and this leaves things in the past unchanged. ("Heart of Gold")

Following Marian's death, Robin is directed by one of the Merry Men, Friar Tuck, to ingest a plant called night root that can help him overcome his fears and move on from his wife's passing. He eventually decides not to try the night root; not wishing to use magic unless it's absolutely necessary. ("The Tower")

After First Curse

After the breaking of the Dark Curse, Robin Hood arrives at the abandoned castle of the Dark One, Rumplestiltskin, and takes up residence there until a confrontation with two intruders, Mulan and Neal. Neal introduces himself as Rumplestiltskin's son, Baelfire. Robin decides to trust Neal's words and believes no one would make such a claim unless it was true. Additionally, he mentions being indebted to Rumplestiltskin for sparing his life in the past. Robin allows Neal to look around as he is searching for a magical item that may help to find his family, Emma and Henry, and picks up his father's old walking stick. He grasps the item and swings it around; prompting a hidden door to appear. Robin is surprised at this, as he once tried to wield the stick before, and nothing ever happened. Through Neal's words, he shares knowledge of his father's enchantment of the walking stick with blood magic that only allows the caster or those of his blood to be able to use it. From within the door, Neal discovers a crystal ball. Reluctantly, he agrees magic is the only thing that can help him now and attempts to get the ball to activate by touching it, which causes no change. Mulan suggests to think about how he feels about Emma, and it will guide him to see her. Neal follows her instructions, and the crystal ball shows him an image of Emma in Neverland. ("The Heart of the Truest Believer")

While Neal is panicking over finding a way to Neverland so he can be with Emma and Henry, Robin's allies, Little John and three men from their group, the Merry Men, enter to investigate the commotion. Robin assures his friends that Neal and Mulan mean no harm. From underneath Little John's feet, Roland crawls out and runs into Robin's arms. Neal comes up with the idea of how to traverse worlds; suggesting that Robin's son can use a summoning incantation to call the Shadow so he himself can gain a pathway to Neverland. Once Robin learns the Shadow is notorious for snatching young boys and whisking them away, he is extremely resistant to the idea. However, Neal reminds him that his father saved Robin's wife, which allowed her to give birth to Roland, and therefore he is in Rumplestiltskin's debt. Robin finally relents, and in preparation, Roland is told what he must say in order to lure to Shadow to the Enchanted Forest. After Little John brings Roland back, Robin goes through the plan with his son before he, Neal and Mulan stand in their attack positions. When Roland summons the Shadow, nothing happens at first, before the Shadow plunges down from the sky. The Shadow makes a grab for Roland, but Mulan slices off one of its arms, with Neal grabbing onto the creature, who promptly flies back to Neverland. In the aftermath, Robin offers Mulan a place among the Merry Men, but she declines and states she needs to talk to someone before it's too late. He curiously wonders if it's a loved one, to which she suggests that it might be. By nightfall, Mulan reappears at the Merry Men's campsite and accepts Robin's offer. ("Quite a Common Fairy")

Before Second Curse

In the woods, Robin Hood and two of his Merry Men, Friar Tuck and Little John, scare off a flying monkey and save the Queen, Regina, and Snow White from harm. The three men accompany them and many other inhabitants who are making their way on foot to the Queen's old palace. During the journey, Robin has a cheerful reunion with not only Baelfire, but also Belle. Once they arrive, Regina discovers someone is already residing inside as there is a protection spell keeping intruders out. Since safety comes first, Robin suggests Sherwood Forest as a good shelter for the time being. ("New York City Serenade")

As they depart for Sherwood Forest, a flying monkey attacks and seemingly goes after his son, Roland, though Regina dispenses with it by turning the beast into a stuffed animal, which she gives to the boy. In a group discussion, Belle shares knowledge about the flying monkey's origins in the land of Oz, so Regina determines the person in the palace is the Wicked Witch. A plan is set up to wait for Regina to bring the shield down and then mobilize the whole group into the palace. Regina chooses to carry out the task alone, though Robin insists on accompanying her to repay what she did for his son earlier. They reach the crypt, which surprisingly is open, even though Regina sealed it with blood magic. He learns Regina is a mother herself, but her son, Henry, though alive, is lost to her. Progressing to a bedchamber, she asks him to stand watch, but he grows suspicious upon noticing her brewing something. With an arrow aimed at her, Robin demands answers, but she simply magically chokes him. He warns that his arrow never misses, and eventually, Regina lets him go and admits she is making a sleeping curse to use on herself. When he attempts to stop her, she freezes him. He tries to persuade her to live rather than give up, but she is adamant that life is only worth living if her only true love—Henry—can wake her up from the curse someday. When she unexpectedly meets the Wicked Witch, however, she decides to live for the sake of destroying her new nemesis. Regina then returns, unfreezing Robin after lowering the shield, and tells him of her intentions with the Wicked Witch. ("Witch Hunt")

After receiving golden-tipped arrows from Regina for helping to break into the palace, Robin walks in on Prince Charming having a drink at the stables and senses something is amiss. Prince Charming relates his foreboding sense of dread and fear, which he is unable to shake. Robin recalls a plant called night root that, if digested, can help a person overcome fear. Eagerly, Prince Charming wishes to procure some, so he directs him to where it grows under white moss at the edge of Sherwood Forest, but warns of a rumor stating the area is haunted. Later, while gathered inside the palace with Belle, Regina, Snow White, and other residents, Robin witnesses a reunion between a long-lost Princess Rapunzel and her parents. ("The Tower")

Shortly after learning from Belle of Neal's sacrifice to resurrect Rumplestiltskin and the Dark One's enslavement by the Wicked Witch Zelena, Aurora and Prince Phillip confess a secret. As soon as they admit Zelena wants Snow White's unborn child, the witch herself pays an ominous visit to the palace to claim the baby will soon be hers. Later, Robin, Belle, Grumpy, Prince Charming, Snow White and Regina discuss counterattacking Zelena. Despite that Regina highly disapproves of Robin's presence on the war council, he curtly remarks that his help is necessary. Deciding Rumplestiltskin would know best how to defeat the Wicked Witch, they break into the Dark One's castle, with Robin stopping Regina from using magic on the door and instead firing an arrow to trigger a trap explosion. Though he saved her, Regina chastises that he nearly killed her. Inside, Rumplestiltskin leads them to the banished Good Witch of the South, Glinda, who provides answers to Snow White and Prince Charming of Zelena's weakness, light magic, a criteria Emma fits. In secret, Snow White casts another curse to reach Emma, but before it takes effect, Zelena drops a potion into the mixture to erase everyone's memories of the last year in the Enchanted Forest. ("A Curious Thing")

During Second Curse

After the casting of the new curse, Robin Hood becomes a resident of Storybrooke and remains tight-knit with members of the Merry Men. One day in the woods, Little John is showing off a crossbow he stole from a store and attempts to catch a meal by shooting a wild turkey, but misses. Robin and the rest of their group follow while Little John chases after the animal. When they near the town line, he watches in shock as Little John is kidnapped by a flying monkey. Emma sends Robin and the rest of the Merry Men along with David and Hook to search for Little John. They find him unconscious in the woods with a sustained bite wound and whisk their fallen comrade to the hospital. Once there, Little John begins convulsing erratically. Though Dr. Whale tries to sedate him, Little John's body forms a tail, throwing back everyone in the vicinity, as he transforms into a full-fledged flying monkey and takes off. ("Witch Hunt")

As news spreads in town that the Wicked Witch is responsible for the new curse, Robin goes alone to the suspected villain's house to investigate. He accidentally fires an arrow at Regina, mistaking her for the Wicked Witch, and promptly apologizes. Robin recalls her as the former Evil Queen, though she prefers to be called Regina. Since they have similar plans of searching the Wicked Witch's house, he goes along with her. In response to Regina's warning about not getting in her way, Robin says, "I wouldn't dream of it", which is the same words he said a year ago in the Enchanted Forest when they broke into the palace together. Though neither remembers this, she suspiciously asks if they have met before. Robin denies it but is certain if they had, he wouldn't forget someone like her. Inside the house, she searches for signs of the Wicked Witch's magic potions, but can't find anything. He expresses surprise at Regina since she isn't evil like her past title proclaimed her to. She remarks that fear can be a powerful influence on how people see her. They lock eyes, as Robin moves closer to her as if to kiss her, but then, he reaches behind a shelf to pick up a bottle. When he asks if it's magical, Regina humorously points it out as whiskey. Deciding to take a break, Robin rolls up his sleeves to pour some for them. As he hands her a cup, she is shocked to see a lion tattoo on his arm. Years ago, Regina was offered a second chance at true love, which led to a man with a lion tattoo, but she did not pursue it and never saw his face. Unaware of this, he watches in confusion as she flees the house. Later, Robin spends time with Roland and the Merry Men, unaware that Regina is watching him from a distance. ("Quiet Minds")

At the news of Neal's sudden death, Robin attends to pay his respects. Afterward, at the diner, he meets Tinker Bell for the first time and offers Regina a drink, but she declines. The Wicked Witch, Zelena, storms in; threatening everyone into submission with the Dark One's dagger. She publicly reveals herself as Regina's half-sister and forces her sibling into a showdown on Main Street after sundown. While patrolling the woods, he sees Regina distracted over a letter. Robin steals the note, and with her permission, reads it. The letter exposes sentiments of Rumplestiltskin praising the magical strength of her mother Cora's first-born child. Regina explains how she always assumed those compliments were about her, but they are actually about Zelena. She has doubts about defeating a witch that is even more powerful than herself but soon forms a plan. Regina takes out her own heart and buries it for Robin to oversee while she is gone. In the aftermath of the witch fight, she entrusts him, much to his surprise, with keeping her heart safe from Zelena. ("It's Not Easy Being Green")

With Friar Tuck, Robin is ambushed when Mr. Gold, on Zelena's orders, demands Regina's heart. Roland, returning to camp after gathering branches, stumbles onto the confrontation. Despite that Robin tells his son to stay where he is, Mr. Gold magically forces Roland to come forward and then shoves the boy into the ground. In retaliation, Robin fires an arrow at Mr. Gold, who redirects it towards Roland. Not willing to risk his son's life, Robin Hood complies and hands over the heart. Mr. Gold then apologizes for what he has been made to do, before releasing and holds the arrow inches away from piercing the boy's head, until dropping it completely. In the next instant, Mr. Gold is gone, and Robin Hood rushes to comfort Roland, who he relinquishes to Friar Tuck once Regina arrives. Robin apologizes for not being able to protect her heart, but she is more relieved his son isn't hurt. Later that night, he is surprised when Regina comes to him, giving him a long-awaited kiss. ("Bleeding Through")

The next morning, Robin meets Regina at the inn before she leaves to meet her allies. When she asks what he sees in her, Robin states it's the same thing as her—a second chance. Later, the second curse is broken when Regina bestows her son, Henry, with a kiss of true love. This act restores the boy's memories as well as everyone else's recollections from the year in the Enchanted Forest. ("A Curious Thing")

After Second Curse

Once the second curse is broken, Regina catches up on lost time with Henry and introduces him to Robin Hood. When Mary Margaret goes into labor at the hospital, Robin and the remaining Merry Men stand guard inside the building entrance. Leroy and Mr. Clark rush in to alert them of Zelena's incoming presence, and they prepare to aim their arrows but are no match for her magic. After she succeeds in stealing the newborn infant for a time spell, everyone learns Emma is now stripped of magic. Henry persuades Regina into using light magic to fight Zelena, with Robin also encouraging her to try. He joins the others in a confrontation with Zelena, in which Regina defeats her sister with light magic. Robin and David fend off a flying monkey, who reverts to Little John after Regina takes away Zelena's pendant and renders her powerless without magic. Rather than condemn the witch to death, Regina spares Zelena's life by imprisoning her. Unseen by the others, Mr. Gold later kills Zelena, accidentally triggering magic in her pendant, which activates the time spell. ("A Curious Thing", "Kansas")

After Regina's heart is restored, Robin spends some time at her house. She shares how her past love, Daniel, died at the hands of her mother, and he relates about how he lost his wife, Marian. Regina reveals Robin was her second chance at love in the Enchanted Forest, thanks to Tinker Bell's pixie dust, but she was too afraid to approach him then. Even so, he regards their romance in the present as something that was destined to happen. In a diner celebration welcoming David and Mary Margaret's newborn son, Robin watches as visible tension unfold when Regina discovers Emma wishes to leave town permanently with Henry. Emma, refusing to elaborate, bails from the diner, leaving Hook to talk some sense into her. Suddenly, a stream of light radiates to the sky as Zelena's time spell is mysteriously activated. Robin goes along with Belle, David, Regina, and Mr. Gold to check up on an imprisoned Zelena, who is now gone from her jail cell. The security tape is played, showing Zelena, despite not having her pendant, harnessing magic to turn herself into a statue, which shatters and melts to ash. For the time being, they decide to leave the time portal untouched, but Emma and Hook accidentally travel through it to the past to recreate a meeting between Prince Charming and Snow White and then return to the present. During the evening, Robin Hood and Regina take Roland to the diner. Once there, Emma introduces Regina to someone she brought back from the past. Shockingly, Robin recognizes the woman as his deceased wife, Marian, not knowing it is actually Zelena in disguise. Overcome with emotion, he embraces her, while too distracted to notice Regina's heartbreak. ("Snow Drifts", "There's No Place Like Home", "Heart of Gold")

Following the shock of seeing Marian again, Robin quickly regains his footing and takes her outside to meet Regina. He has hopes the three of them can talk about the situation, but a furious Marian is outraged that her husband is involved with the Evil Queen. Marian has no qualms about expressing her opinion of Regina, who she declares is a monster. With both parties unwilling to settle, Regina walks away from the diner as Marian picks up Roland and stalks off in the opposite direction. The next morning, a conflicted Robin arrives at Regina's office. He confirms that his feelings for her have always been real, but he is obligated to keep his marriage vows to Marian. He apologizes, hoping she will understand, and then leaves. Later that day, a snow monster rampages through town. Grouped with Little John and Marian in the forest, Robin's party is soon joined by David, Emma, and Hook. When the creature approaches, Little John shoots it with an arrow, which has no effect. Hoping magic will do the trick, Emma materializes an energy ball at the monster. Having been provoked twice already, the colossal ogre knocks everyone unconscious. Marian, previously absent from the battle, rushes forward to shoot the monster, but she too is knocked away. Moments later, Regina magically obliterates the monster as everyone else awakens unharmed from the prior attack. ("A Tale of Two Sisters")

During a stroll, Robin shows Marian around town, and to reassure her that Storybrooke is a good place, he mentions all the places their son likes going to. Roland names the ice cream parlor, too, and asks Marian if they can go there now. Robin believes Marian has seen enough for the day, but Roland pleads with his mother until she agrees. Inside the parlor, Any Given Sundae, Robin and his son have rocky road ice cream. The counter server, a blonde woman, is introduced to Marian and gives her ice cream, free of charge, as a town welcome. Secretly, the woman adds a freezing spell into the ice cream, which Marian unknowingly consumes. At the mayoral office, Robin, Marian, and Roland attend Mary Margaret's first town meeting as the new mayor. While Mary Margaret assures the residents that the ice wall blocking the town perimeter, and the creator of it, Elsa, are not dangerous, Marian passes out. As Marian slowly freezes to death, Robin seeks Regina's help. He attempts true love's kiss on Marian, but it doesn't work, so Emma searches for the one who cast the spell. After leaving Roland in Little John's care, Robin tells Regina that true love's kiss didn't work because he loves her, not Marian. However, they know being together is impossible since he wants to keep his marriage vow to his wife. With Marian almost completely frozen, Regina, with Robin's permission, takes out his wife's heart and places it in a box for safekeeping until they find a cure to revive her. ("Rocky Road")

While a search party is organized to find the Snow Queen's ice cream truck, Robin spots the abandoned vehicle near his campsite and informs Emma. As they approach it, he attempts to talk to Regina, who rebuffs him. Only after Regina exits the truck, he questions if she is upset at him for his prior love declaration. Instead, Regina explains she has no magical means to cure Marian despite having tried everything. As it is the only way to restore his wife, she implores him to forget about her and fall in love with Marian again. As he looks at her with a torn expression, Regina stoically walks away. ("Family Business")

With his heart in conflict, Robin approaches the vault and finds Regina inside. He is aghast with indecision, as his heart is swaying towards her even with knowledge of what must be done to save Marian, but she makes it clear they cannot be in each other's lives. Distraught, he finds a stiff drink at the diner and moodily aims darts at a board. When Will walks in and attempts to leave unnoticed, Robin hits a dart at a nearby wall to force him to stay. Robin is still upset at him for once endangering the Merry Men by stealing a looking glass, but they end up talking. He recalls his first meeting with Marian, which Will has already heard many times before. Robin details how she changed him into a thief who understood the plight of poor people and began stealing from the rich to give to the needy. Will recalls a time he asked Marian why she gave up everything to be with Robin. As he remembers, Marian stated she believed in the goodness inside Robin and that true love is something one should always fight for. Robin questions if Will still believes this even after everything he did for love. He agrees, saying that by finding someone to love for his whole life, even by giving up everything for it, is worth the trouble. Coming to a resolution, Robin seeks out Regina again, explaining that he's lived his life with an honorable code, but not today. He then sweeps her into a passionate kiss, which she gladly reciprocates. ("The Snow Queen")

After spending the night together, Robin regrets nothing, though Regina feels guilty since he is a married man. She suspects, even if things were different and he didn't have a wife, their relationship still wouldn't work. Regina explains the storybook's workings to him, in which it records the lives of villains and heroes from the Enchanted Forest, including herself. Within it, he sees a photo of Regina, in the past, choosing not to meet him when the opportunity arose, and because of this, Regina herself believes her fate and their romance has already slipped by. Though she insists they cannot be intimate again, he humorously jokes that if they stay in the vault, it'll still count as the first time. Following another tryst, Robin steals the storybook and consults with Will about finding a way to help Regina. To uncover more information about the book, Will attempts to break into the library. However, Robin casually opens the unlocked door after seeing a store hours sign, proving the library is not yet closed. Inside, they find nothing of use until Robin pulls out a storybook page from his bag that appeared out of nowhere. On the image, it features an illustration of Regina, had she not walked away, meeting him in the tavern. Stunned at the discovery, he phones Regina and later explains the image is proof her fate could have gone a different way, and nothing in the past is set in stone. ("Smash the Mirror")

Once Ingrid casts the spell of shattered sight, Robin is warned by Regina of the imminent threat. He, in turn, calls for Will and commands him to let the Merry Men know they are packing up camp. Basking in their last moments together, Regina looks longingly at Robin, explaining that she wants to remember him while he still loves her, but reasons that they should just think about the present for now. Comfortingly, they share a kiss and hug each other. As the curse nears, both Marian and Roland are hidden elsewhere without Robin's knowledge so when the spell comes into effect, he won't be able to harm them. He finds Regina after she casts a shield to protect Henry in the mayoral office, but she asks him to stay as far away as possible, not wanting to hurt him while she is under Ingrid's curse. Though Robin had plans of chaining himself to a tree, he considers going with her until she insists against it. Regina reasons that she must seal herself in the vault to keep from hurting people under the spell's influence, but Robin swears he's not afraid of her. She contends he should be, and then departs alone to the vault. Returning to the woods, he looks up at the sky as the spell cloud approaches while his fellow Merry Men flee. ("Fall")

Once the curse is broken, Robin gathers with Regina as Marian's heart is restored. While his wife happily hugs him, he reciprocates her embrace while hesitantly looking at Regina. In a private conversation, Marian tells Regina she knows of her and Robin's mutual feelings and agrees to not interfere if they wish to be together. During a trip to the park, Robin and Regina sit at a bench while Marian plays with Roland beside a lake. To Regina, he asserts his choice to be with her, but she questions how his choice will affect Roland. By following his heart, he believes living truthfully sets a good example for his son. Regina smiles hopefully when he shows her the storybook image of themselves, but suddenly, Roland calls to them after Marian faints. Regina, recognizing Marian is freezing because of remnants of Ingrid's magic, suggests leaving town will save her life. Sacrificing her chance at happiness, she pushes Robin to go with Marian. After saying goodbye to the Merry Men, Robin is given last instructions from Regina, who supplies him with enough money and directions to the nearest diner outside of town. Allowing Marian and their son to cross the town line first, he gives Regina a farewell kiss before joining his family. ("Heroes and Villains")

In New York City, Robin and his family navigate the streets, hoping to locate Neal's old apartment, which Regina designated as their new home. When a thief on a bicycle steals Marian's purse, he chases him down on a horse and takes back the stolen item. While the trio settles into the apartment, they receive Mr. Gold, who tries to throw them out, before he collapses from a heart attack. After whisking Mr. Gold to the hospital, Robin learns that the heart attack stemmed from the poison of the Dark One's deeds. Mr. Gold then coerces Robin into helping him, knowing he cannot refuse because of his righteous honor, and asks the thief to retrieve the elixir of the wounded heart from Walsh's furniture store. Upon entering the building, the alarm goes off, and just as Robin finds the elixir, he crashes out a back window to elude the police. Marian is displeased to hear about the deal with Mr. Gold, and she questions why he didn't let the man die. He is shocked by her words, as it's not something she would say, but Marian insists change is unavoidable. With her own plan in mind, Zelena continues to pretend to be Marian and secretly switches out the elixir with a fake. Sticking to his honor, Robin delivers the elixir and after he leaves, Marian reveals her true form to Mr. Gold and makes a deal with him involving the Author. That night, Robin gathers Neal's belongings and tries giving them to Mr. Gold, who refuses since they are a reminder of the man his son became after he abandoned him. Having experienced happiness with Baelfire and not appreciating it at the time, Mr. Gold advises Robin to chase after what his heart truly desires and never let it go. When Marian finds Regina's phone number on her husband's mobile, she pushes him to choose between her or his former lover. Recalling the love they had and the sacrifices she made for him in the past, Robin decides to be with Marian and deletes Regina's number. ("Heart of Gold")

At some point, Robin discovers his wife is pregnant. When Regina makes an unexpected visit to him, he is happy to see her but is bewildered when she claims Zelena has been disguised as Marian this whole time after killing his real wife. Before he can process this, Marian walks in and looks to her husband for protection when Regina begins threatening her. He stops Regina from doing anything, however, Marian then turns the tables on him by pulling out a six leaf clover and reverting to Zelena. With the truth revealed, Robin flinches in shock, and Regina urges him to grab Roland so they can leave. However, he stutters in refusal and eventually admits Zelena is pregnant with his child. ("Lily")

Taking some time at the bar, Robin and Regina discuss their current situation, in which she expresses hurt at him moving on without her. Robin insists it's what they agreed on, but she clarifies that understanding and seeing it are two different things. Changing the topic, he relates fears about how Roland will be affected when Zelena's Marian disguise comes off for good, so Regina suggests using a forgetting potion. Still shocked over Zelena, Robin talks about how he sensed something was not right with her, but he had no idea of the truth. He believes being with Regina is still possible, despite the complications, but she doubts it since he's now connected to Zelena in a way that won't happen with her. For now, Robin returns to Storybrooke, with Regina locking Zelena away in the town's psychiatric ward. More determined than ever to gain her happy ending, Regina steals blood from Lily, using it for the quill's ink, with intentions of having Isaac write Zelena out of existence. However, just as Regina realizes going through with it is self-destructive, Robin arrives to check up on her. Deciding to accept reality, Regina decides not to harm Zelena, reassuring Robin that all is well, as she vows to stop standing in the way of her own happiness. ("Mother")

In the Sorcerer's library, Robin helps search dozens of other books for clues about defeating Isaac, but it isn't until August presents a drawing of the Apprentice that they finally have a lead. With Mother Superior's help, the Apprentice is freed from the hat, and he rallies everyone to look for the door illustration to trap Isaac. However, Isaac rewrites a new alternate reality in the Heroes and Villains book before they can stop him. ("Operation Mongoose Part 1")

In this new life, Robin Hood is a thief that constantly bests Regina by stealing from the carriages she usually goes after. With plans of leaving this life to marry Zelena, he considers Regina could be the new leader of the Merry Men. After saving Regina from Queen Snow White, Robin takes her to a tavern, where she finally realizes who he is. They share drinks and he offers her leadership over the Merry Men, but Regina declines since she wants to leave the kingdom. He then talks about his reasons for giving up his position, and his bride-to-be Zelena walks in. Zelena invites her to their wedding ceremony, but Regina refuses, believing she has to make haste since the Queen is looking for her. Outside the tavern, Regina confronts Henry, who previously told her that Robin is her true love. Later, as Robin's wedding ceremony begins, Regina, Emma, and Henry rush to stop him. Hoping to reverse Isaac's stories, Henry believes a kiss of true love between Regina and Robin will return everything to normal. Upon approaching the church, they are blocked by Rumplestiltskin, who Emma duels, as Regina progresses on. Inside, Zelena has already said her "I do" to the marriage officiant's question, but when Robin is presented with the same inquiry, he hesitates, glancing at Regina in the doorway. Seeing Henry is going to be killed by Rumplestiltskin, Regina abandons her plans and takes the fatal blow for him instead. While she lays dying, Robin marries Zelena and the church bells chime. Walking out with his new bride, he immediately spots an injured Regina and goes to her side. He stays with her in her last moments, while Henry harnesses the quill and returns everyone to Storybrooke. ("Operation Mongoose Part 1", "Operation Mongoose Part 2")

Before Third Curse

Waking up in town after the alternate reality is reversed, Robin Hood reunites with Regina. Later that night, they attend a diner party where he asks about Zelena's condition, and she confirms her sister is still pregnant. While taking an evening stroll together, Regina is attacked by a fury of escaped darkness from Mr. Gold's heart. As it takes hold of her, Robin is unable to help. Emma intervenes to save Regina by absorbing the darkness herself, making her the new Dark One. ("Operation Mongoose Part 2")

With Emma nowhere to be found, Robin and his allies learn from the Apprentice that she has gone to the Enchanted Forest, and to reach her, someone with both light and dark essence must wield his wand to cross realms. Regina is unable to activate the wand's power, so they are forced to get help from Zelena. Robin asks her to help for the sake of their child, but Zelena snaps at him that the child is hers, since he was just an unwilling pawn in the baby's creation. Zelena tells them they need something important of Emma's to direct the portal made from the wand, but since Regina is unwilling to let Zelena off her leash, Hook frees Zelena, who double-crosses him and disappears. In Mary Margaret's loft, after Robin has just put Roland to bed upstairs, he is descending the stairs as Regina bursts in, informing him about Zelena's escape. When he kisses her, however, he immediately recognizes she is Zelena in disguise, prompting her to mock him for not having known anything was amiss when she was pretending to be Marian. Zelena takes him as a hostage, and his safety is secured only after Regina forfeits the wand to her. Zelena creates a cyclone from the wand with intentions of disappearing to Oz with her unborn child, but the effort of creating something so powerful drains her magic, allowing Regina to disable her magic with the bracelet. Robin takes his son Roland to seek shelter in the diner, where Regina redirects the cyclone, causing the diner to be whisked away to the Enchanted Forest. ("The Dark Swan")

After their arrival in the Enchanted Forest, Robin and his allies stop Emma from crushing Merida's heart. King Arthur and his knights arrive, proclaiming the newcomers have been prophesied to reunite them with Merlin. The Storybrooke natives then head for King Arthur's castle in Camelot. ("The Dark Swan")

At the castle, King Arthur introduces the group to his Queen, Guinevere, and he announces there will be a ball held in their honor. While Robin is standing next to Regina, he overhears Zelena pressuring her to remove the bracelet or she’ll tell Arthur that Emma is the Dark One. Regina promptly shuts her sister up with a magical wave of her hand, rendering her incapable of speaking, much to Robin’s amusement. To help them understand where Merlin is, Arthur shows them a tree in the courtyard which the sorcerer is trapped in and then asks which of them is the prophesied Savior, a title Regina claims in order to keep Emma’s cover from being blown. Later, as Robin and Regina are observing the Merlin tree, Percival arrives to give Regina a purple necklace, stating it’s a gift from Arthur that he wishes her to wear to the ball. At the ball, after Regina has been formally announced to the guests as the Savior, she and Robin have fun dancing, just as Percival cuts in, asking for a turn with the Savior. Robin obliges and goes to stand at the sidelines, but a few minutes later, he notices the friction building between Regina and Percival. Suddenly, Percival tries to kill Regina, but Robin intervenes, getting injured in the process. As Robin tries to fight off Percival, who moves to deliver a final fatal blow at him, David kills Percival. Regina, unable to heal Robin, begs Emma to do it, not wanting to lose another love like she did in the past. Emma magically fixes Robin’s wound, but as the cost of magic, she must extract a price from Regina, but it appears she never does. ("The Price")

In Merlin's tower, as Regina is continuing to research for a magical remedy to free Merlin, Robin offers to get tea for her. Before leaving the room, he kisses her, as a mute Zelena watches from the sidelines with disdain. That night, Robin is present with everyone else at the Round Table room, where Arthur knights David and bestows upon him the Siege Perilous seat. ("Siege Perilous")

While Mary Margaret and David are away fulfilling their plan to capture Arthur, who they believe is untrustworthy, Regina paces about the room. Robin mistakes her behavior as worry over her friends, but instead, she affirms her confidence that the two survived, but she is curious about whether their test on Arthur worked. When Mary Margaret and David finally return after being doused with the Sands of Avalon, which enchanted them into believing Arthur is harmless, they explain that he can be trusted after all, and Lancelot is their actual enemy. They insist that their best bet now for helping Emma is to give the dagger to Arthur. ("The Broken Kingdom")

Once Emma reverts Merlin to human form, she and some of her allies regroup in the diner, where Robin and the others watch as the great sorcerer helps to undo the enchanted sand's effect on David and Mary Margaret. Merlin confirms he can remove Emma's darkness, but the darkness may have taken root inside of her where no one can see it, and for him to remove it, her heart must be ready to be free. ("Dreamcatcher")

Merlin tells the heroes about the plan to rid Emma's darkness by uniting Excalibur with the dagger. To accomplish this, he and Emma have to go on a quest to obtain a magical item, the Flame of Prometheus, needed for combining the two weapons into one. As for the heroes, Merlin requests that they work to get Excalibur from Arthur. Robin believes that's near impossible since they're basically at war with the king now, and even Hook objects when Merlin admits his foresight into the future shows many paths that can be taken. Nonetheless, they go ahead with the plan, on Merlin's word that they must persevere for Emma. During the discussion about infiltrating the castle, the group is interrupted by Zelena, who convinces them their plan to get in from the front won't work, and their best bet is to sneak in without attracting attention. After Zelena shows them an abandoned tunnel leading to the castle courtyard, Robin and the others go in, while Mary Margaret stays behind to keep watch on Zelena. Though they corner Arthur in the Round Table room, the group are blindsided by Zelena, who holds Mary Margaret as her hostage to get them to back down. With Zelena free of her cuff because of Arthur's help, Regina prepares to throw a raging fireball at her sister, but she promptly dissolves it when Robin protests that it might hurt the baby. After Zelena helps Arthur tether Merlin to Excalibur, he summons the sorcerer, ordering him to send the heroes away. ("Nimue")

After Arthur and Zelena are forced to retreat once they are defeated, Robin joins David and Regina, combing the woods to make sure the villains are gone, before they return to the diner. Emma, having gotten the flame ember to light up, begins harnessing it to reforge the sword and dagger, as everyone looks on. Suddenly, Hook collapses from a cut he previously sustained from Excalibur, which no magic can heal. A desperate Emma, willing to do anything to save him, including creating more darkness, teleports away with Hook. As she tethers Hook's life to Excalibur, making him a Dark One like herself, Robin and the others remain in the diner, looking on in alarm as black tendrils of darkness evaporate from Merlin's body. ("Birth")

Despite Emma's efforts to turn Hook away from the darkness, he kills Merlin to enact another curse to return everyone to Storybrooke so he can fulfill his centuries-old grudge against Mr. Gold. In the hopes of returning him to the man he used to be, Emma absorbs Hook's memories from the last six weeks into a dreamcatcher, and she does the same with Robin and everyone else, to ensure no one remembers that Hook became a Dark One, before adding the dreamcatcher to the curse brew, creating a full memory wipe. Soon, the curse spreads and sends them all back to Storybrooke. ("Broken Heart")

After Third Curse

Upon arriving in Storybrooke, Robin Hood and the others crash to the floor from the impact of the diner dropping onto the ground, and as they get up, the group realize they are still in Camelot attire, and the last thing anyone recalls is entering King Arthur's castle. Emma, in order to keep Hook's secret under wraps, pretends to have gone fully dark and that she has some unexplained vendetta against the heroes by professing that she will punish them for what they did to her. ("The Dark Swan", "The Price", "Broken Heart")

The next day, Robin hears from Little John that he ran into some Camelot residents in the town forest. He notifies Regina, King Arthur and the rest of the group in the mayor's office, and then all the men head out to conduct a search for them. After everyone has been found, Robin is helping to distribute supplies to the Camelot visitors when he sees Regina returning after talking to Emma at the dock. Regina is upset over Emma thinking no one believes she can protect the town, but Robin encourages her, pointing out people know how much she's changed. Regina still has doubts because the townspeople may not see her as the Evil Queen anymore, but she wants to prove to them that she is a capable leader. However, she fears people aren't ready to trust her, though they've forgiven her for her past. Robin, knowing that's not true, comforts her with a hug. Later, while collecting branches for the tent campfires, Robin is surprised by a fury, who knocks him out and kidnaps him. As the fury flies off with him, Regina manages to teleport herself in front of the creature and make it drop Robin. Regina is no match for the fury, though, and Robin is quickly taken away by the fury once more. Through the day, Regina discovers the fury is taking Robin as her unpaid price of magic from six weeks ago. She forfeits her life to the fury, who is destroyed by its own power after Mary Margaret, David, Leroy and Arthur all link hands with her. After Robin recovers, he, Regina and Roland head to the diner for an evening out. ("The Price")

After a pregnant Zelena gets a sonogram of the baby, Regina gives Robin a phone so he can look at the photo. While sitting at the diner counter, Robin studies the sonogram, just as Hook walks in. Noticing that he has a phone, Hook offers to teach him how to use it, but Robin explains he's looking at a photo from inside Zelena, causing much disgust from the pirate, until the latter mentions it's just an image of the baby. Robin expresses mixed emotions about the situation, which is already messed up as it is, yet part of him is happy about the child, despite not wanting Regina to know about it, in fear she will mistake his happiness for something else. Upon the conversation turning to Hook's own complex love life, the pirate mentions a locked door in Emma's new house that she apparently doesn't want him anywhere near. As he begins explaining his plan to get in there, Granny drops a takeout bag on the counter with a note from Emma asking him to meet her on his ship. Later in the day, Robin is having lunch at the diner when Hook returns, having failed to get an answer from Emma about the locked door, and he asks for Robin to help him break in. Robin reasons that he's no longer a thief, but Hook uses himself as an example that the past is never behind either of them. Hook asks for his help again, but before Robin can answer, both are distracted by the jingle of the diner bell as Belle rushes in to pick up a sandwich from Granny. ("Siege Perilous")

In the sheriff's station, Robin is present as the disappearance of one of Arthur's knights, Grif, is noted, with Arthur suggesting Grif escaped back to Camelot with a magic bean. Upset about how this news will affect her people, as the bean was their only hope of returning home, Guinevere believes they must do something to raise everyone's spirits, leading Henry to suggest a town dance as a much-needed distraction. As they all leave the sheriff's station together, Belle runs up to them to report that Mr. Gold is missing. While Henry occupies Emma with another Operation Cobra mission, Robin goes with Belle, Regina and Hook to break into Emma's house. After bypassing the door's protection spell with Henry's scarf, they wander into the basement, finding Excalibur in a stone and noting that the sword's markings are the same as the Dark One's dagger. After Belle finds evidence that Mr. Gold was being held as a prisoner in the basement, Robin suggests searching the rest of the house. Before they can, Regina receives a text from Henry, warning that Emma is on her way back. As the group scrambles to leave before she returns, a box catches Hook's eye, and he opens it to reveal a dreamcatcher inside. Regina, having knowledge about magical purposes of dreamcatchers, realizes Emma must have used them to take her and everyone else's memories. That night, Robin joins Regina at her house, where they study the dreamcatcher. Regina, worried over what the memories in the dreamcatcher may reveal, is encouraged by Robin to view them, as it's the only way they'll know the truth. With a magical wave, Regina unlocks the dreamcatcher's memories. In it, they see Henry's crush, Violet, having her heart stolen by Emma, who orders her to reject Henry so she can obtain a fresh tear from a broken heart and free Merlin. As the memory concludes, they turn around upon hearing a loud crash, seeing a stunned Henry has witnessed what they saw in the dreamcatcher. ("Dreamcatcher")

Once the heroes discover Arthur attempted to sabotage their quest to breach communication with Merlin, Robin and Hook stand guard outside as David goes into Arthur's tent to confront him. Arthur makes a hasty escape into the woods, but he is eventually caught and imprisoned at the sheriff's station. When Zelena's pregnancy accelerates to full term because of Emma's magical influence, Nurse Ratched calls in Robin and Regina for help. As Zelena is prepped for labor at a hospital bed, Belle alerts her and the others about Emma's spell to snuff out the light, which requires a newborn's first cry. With Dr. Whale's help, Zelena gives birth to a healthy baby girl, who Robin happily cradles in his arms. Regina comes in to meet the newest member of the family, while Zelena cannot help but comment on her sister's envy towards her for having Robin's baby. Before Regina can respond to Zelena's snide remark, Emma shows up. Robin points his sword at her in defense of his child, with Regina also refusing to surrender without a fight, but Emma admits she did not come for the baby, and then poofs out of the room, taking Zelena with her. ("Birth")

Soon after the birth, Robin takes his daughter to Mary Margaret's loft, where Regina later brings Zelena. Regina, whose maternal love for Henry changed her into a better person, has some hope that the same could happen for Zelena with her child. Although Robin is skeptical the three of them can ever be a family, he consents to allow Zelena to visit and be part of his daughter's life as her mother, as long as either he or Regina are present. Robin then allows Zelena to hold the baby, and as Zelena coos over her daughter, Robin and Regina exchange uncertain looks with each other. ("Broken Heart")

Learning Hook has unleashed the previous Dark Ones from the Underworld, Robin goes with Regina to search for and take down Hook, while everyone else splits up from them to cover more ground. The pair stops in their tracks when Zelena poofs in front of them, and she casually states she's made a change to the custody agreement, granting herself sole custody. Robin becomes upset upon hearing Zelena assert she will teach her daughter to be wicked like her, and he hastily readies his arrow, prepared to loose it on her. This only makes Zelena laugh and claim there's no point in fighting since both Robin and Regina will be dead soon. The couple quickly learns what she means when two Dark Ones corner them and brand their wrists with the mark of Charon. After regrouping with the others, they determine the Dark Ones cannot exist without living souls taking their places in the Underworld, as everyone with the mark will die once Charon comes for them. With little time left, Robin joins Regina at the mayor's office, where they find Zelena attempting to claim the place as her own since the pair's demise is imminent. Believing his daughter's best chance in life is definitely not with Zelena, he lets Regina wield the Apprentice's wand to banish Zelena back to Oz. As Charon's arrival draws near, Robin and the rest of the crew are taken by the Dark Ones to the Underworld's portal. In the end, they escape death when Hook absorbs all the darkness and has Emma kill him. After Emma finds out Mr. Gold used Hook's sacrifice to regain his Dark One powers, she forces him to reopen the portal to the Underworld so Hook can be rescued. Robin leaves his children with the nuns before joining the expedition to the Underworld. ("Swan Song")

After coming to the Underworld, Robin splits up from the others to go with Regina in search of Hook. He notices the town looks the same as Storybrooke, except the top of the clock tower is in ruins on the street. Regina recalls Storybrooke came along with the Dark Curse after she cast it, though she theorizes that whoever made the curse created Storybrooke as a replica to the Underworld's town. Following a reunion with Cora, Regina is indecisive about whether to leave the Underworld or not, because her mother is threatening to harm her father if she doesn't. Robin tries to console her when she imagines how much her father will suffer because of her, but Regina still blames herself for her father being in the Underworld in the first place. Mr. Gold procures magical ale, which Emma uses to summon Hook's spirit and talk to him. Hook materializes, appearing bloody and beaten, causing Robin and Regina to shield Henry and keep him from looking at the gruesome sight. However, Hook seemingly cannot hear or respond to Emma, and he disappears soon after. Once Regina confronts Cora and helps her father move on to a better place, she and Henry rejoin their party and discuss possibly helping other souls in the Underworld move on. Mr. Gold, not interested in being a do-gooder, parts from the team, while Robin and the others continue with Operation Firebird, Henry's codename for their mission. ("Souls of the Departed")

Continuing to look for Hook in the north woods, Regina sends Robin to the mayor's office, suspecting there are maps of the entire town. Robin begins heading off alone, but Regina insists that he bring Henry with him, and it won't be dangerous since Cora won't be there. Discovering the door has a protection spell, Robin pulls aside the hallway sofa and tears off a vent cover, which has a crawl space passageway leading to the office. Henry offers to go in while Robin waits for him. The boy encounters Cruella inside the office, where she strikes a deal with him. After Henry returns to Robin, he states that he found nothing. ("Labor of Love")

To find Hook underground, Robin and the heroes plan to enter the cave Megara had escaped from. The plan falls through after Mr. Gold convinces Emma to join him for a better idea, in which he'll use the aura of a deceased person to get both of them into Hades' lair, where Hook is. Sometime later, upon returning to the apartment, Robin and the others find Hook and Emma already waiting for them. The pair report that Hades destroyed their boat, so now everyone has no way of going home. When Hook mentions they lost a friend as a result of his rescue, Robin gives his condolences, to which Mr. Gold mentions that this person made him who he is. Since Regina's magic is working again, she attempts to do the heart split between Emma and Hook, except a barrier prevents her from taking out Emma's heart. Afterward, Hook shows everyone the three headstones that Hades engraved with Snow, Regina and Emma's names, to make them stay in the Underworld forever, in place of the three people who already moved on. ("Devil's Due")

Zelena, after being pulled into the Underworld, seeks out the heroes' help to track down her baby, whom Belle ran off with. While combing the woods with Robin and Regina, she asks Robin what he named their daughter, expressing disdain at certain names, especially Marian. When Robin retorts he hasn't had enough time with their child since he's been protecting her from Zelena, she berates him for being in the Underworld instead of with their daughter. Robin insists on helping a friend and settling an example of heroism is important, much to Zelena's disdain. To end the dispute, Regina recalls how she used to be like Zelena, only caring about herself, and that made her alone and miserable, but this changed when her enemies became her family, which is why they are in the Underworld to save Hook. After finding the baby, Zelena offers to feed her with a formula bottle. Robin relents, only because Zelena's magic isn't working, but when Zelena's magic returns, she douses him, Regina, and Belle with a blast before escaping with her child. However, after realizing her own magic injured her daughter, Zelena forfeits her to Robin, knowing she can't protect their child from Hades, whom she suspects wants the child for a time spell. Coming back to the apartment, Robin decides not to name his daughter yet, fearing Hades will have power over her if he knows her name. He later heads to the forest to hide her from Hades. ("Our Decay", "Her Handsome Hero")

After Snow escapes the Underworld, Hades creates tombstones for all the remaining heroes, including Robin, to keep any more of them from leaving. While Regina is trying to make Zelena forget Hades, David and Emma plan to meet up with Robin in the woods. David goes to grab baby supplies, but on his way back to the apartment, he is overpowered by James, his twin, who switches places with him. Without Emma knowing of the change, James accompanies her to find Robin, who shows up with his daughter in a carrier. James swiftly slaps an cuff on Emma's wrist to cancel out her magic and then draws a gun on both her and Robin. Cruella soon joins him and announces her intentions of kidnapping the baby to force Hades into reviving her. Robin resists by shooting an arrow into James' chest, but it has no effect since he is already deceased. When James threatens to kill him with a single gunshot, Robin stops trying to fight. He and Emma are taken to the docks to be pushed into the River of Lost Souls, but David and Hook intervene in time, allowing them to break free. ("Sisters")

As part of a deal with Emma, in which she helped to save Zelena, Hades removes the heroes' names from the tombstones. Robin brings his daughter to the library, where he is alarmed to find his friends with Zelena and Hades, although Regina assures him that the pair can be trusted. Knowing the portal to Storybrooke is opening soon, Regina asks Robin to take the baby and go through it first, as she wants to stay a little longer to help Henry with Operation Firebird. He refuses to leave her behind, and fears for her safety in the Underworld since many still hold a grudge against her. Regina then suggests giving the baby to Zelena instead, and he eventually relents, after she persuades him that she is doing this in his daughter's best interests. After Zelena, the baby and Hades leave to wait by the portal, Robin rebuffs Regina when she tries to comfort him over having to give up his child. He disappears into another room to cool off and finds himself attacked by Mr. Gold, who rips out his heart and makes him forget it ever happened. Although he promised Pan a living heart, Mr. Gold later returns the heart to Robin, having only taken it in case Pan or his Shadow were watching. During Operation Firebird, the Blind Witch helps Cruella trap Robin, Regina, David and Henry in the library. Regina suspects Hades' magic is actually keeping them from escaping, and this doubt is further cemented when Emma returns without Hook or the ambrosia that Hades sent her to retrieve. After Regina and Emma's combined powers break the magic seal, the heroes rush through the portal before it closes. ("Firebird")

Immediately after returning to Storybrooke, Robin and Regina try to talk sense into Zelena about Hades‘ scheming, but she doesn't believe them. To get into the magic-protected mayor's office, where Zelena is with the baby and Hades, Regina leads Robin through an underground tunnel. During the trek, she talks to him about why she gave Zelena a chance to find love with Hades. Robin, however, is still too upset over his daughter being in Hades‘ hands and doesn't want to hear Regina defending her sister. When she apologizes for getting him in this mess and vows to rectify things, Robin goes back on his previous words, agreeing that Zelena does deserve another chance. He realizes, from having been with Regina, that people can change and don't always have to live in the shadows of their pasts. The couple arrives at the office, overhearing Hades trying to convince Zelena into letting him use the Olympian Crystal against the heroes so they can take over Storybrooke. Zelena teleports outside to deal with Emma, and while Hades is away, Robin and Regina enter to get the baby. Hades reappears to finish Regina off with the Olympian Crystal, but Robin takes the blow for her. After being hit, he shares one last look with Regina before collapsing and dying. His spirit separates from his body to reach out longingly at her and then fades out of existence. As Regina cries over Robin‘s body, Zelena returns, with Hades lying about defending himself against Robin after he provoked him. Hades encourages Zelena to kill her sister, but Zelena ultimately kills Hades, after Regina uses Robin‘s sacrifice as an example of true love; something that Hades has with Zelena and yet it‘s not enough for him. Later that day, Robin is laid to rest at the cemetery, and the townspeople pay their respects by putting arrows with entwined roses on his casket. Zelena brings her daughter to the funeral, where she tells Regina that the child‘s name will be Robin, in honor of his untimely passing. ("Last Rites")

After his death, Robin's soul then moves to "a better place", where he rests in peace.[1]

After Fifth Curse
While Regina is being held prisoner by Sir Henry in the Wish Realm, she dreams about being in a tavern, where Robin offers her a drink. Regina tells him she misses him and that she may be joining him soon since a version of her son wants her dead. When they talk about her past as a villain, Regina recalls Robin was the one who got her to change into a better person, though Robin believes that while he did help, she changed on her own and now Henry can too if she shows him it is possible to turn over a new leaf like she did. Regina considers how unfair it was that their time together was so short, and Robin suggests that this doesn't make what they had any less epic. The two kiss, and after, Robin places something in Regina's hand. Once Regina wakes up from the dream, she unfurls her palm and sees what Robin gave her: a red feather. ("Leaving Storybrooke")

Character Notes

Storybook Notes

  • An illustration of Marian and Robin Hood in Henry's storybook is accompanied by a story about how they met.[13] Some of the text appears on-screen (though a few words are blurred), while the rest appears on a prop page which was auctioned off online in October 2019.[14] The missing text (blurred or off-screen) is set in fuchsia, or, in the case of links, underlined:

Robin was back on his feet in a

dash. He and the Merry Men
pursued the robed figure through
the forest. Though the figure
was quick, Robin knew these
woods well, as they served as his
home. Robin caught up to
the figure, but as he knocked it
to the ground, the figure's hood dropped to reveal
the most beautiful woman that Robin had ever seen.
The woman told Robin Hood that her name was Maid
Marian. Her parents were so poor they could not afford
the evil Sheriff's taxes. Instead, Instead, they gave the Sheriff all
they had of any value -- her hand in marriage. Marian
begged Robin Hood. If her carriage did not arrive at the
Sheriff's castle by daybreak, her parents lives would pay
the forfeit."I shall ransom you." said Robin Hood. "I'm sure you
will fetch a fine bounty.
"Then the stories are true." replied Marian," They
say there is a thief in Nottingham who is as selfish as the
Sheriff himself. Our people are starving and while the
Sheriff takes from one pocket, Robin Hood and the Merry
Men steal from the other."
Robin Hood had never thought of his crimes in this
manner before, and for the first time, someone had told

him the truth about how he was regarded in Nottingham.
Through he was a proud man, he allowed Marian's car-
riage to continue that night, albeit only after strip-
ing of her purse. However, in the intervening days, he could not forget
Marian's face, nor the words she had spoken. They were
the first thing he thought of when he awoke and the last
thing he thought of before he slept. When he looked in
the mirror, all he saw was a selfish thief, no better than
the Sheriff of Nottingham. And the thought of Marian
being forced to marry the Sheriff did not sit well with
him either.
Robin Hood vowed never to steal for himself again.
He would only steal from the rich and give to the poor.
He would make himself a man worthy of Marian's love.
And that is exactly what Robin did. For many
years, Robin Hood and the Merry Men fought valiantly
for the people of Nottingham. After defeating the Sher-
iff, Robin Hood rescued Marian and married her. In this
way did Marian's love change Robin Hood from a thief
into a man of honor, and they lived happily ever after.

The End

("The Snow Queen")

  • Note that the storybook contradicts the story that Robin tells Will Scarlet in the diner. According to Robin, he first met Marian when he stole a horse from a poor farmer. While camping for the night, he awakened to find the farmer's daughter, Marian, aiming an arrow at him. She told him the horse was important to her family's livelihood and without it, they wouldn't survive. Realizing the error of his ways, he returned to Marian's cottage the next day and forfeited his own two horses to Marian and her family. From that day forward, he only stole from the rich and gave to the poor. ("The Snow Queen")

Production Notes

  • Due to other commitments, Tom Ellis, who portrayed Robin Hood in "Lacey", was unable to reprise his role for Season Three, and the character was recast with Sean Maguire.[15]
  • A storyline involving Robin's backstory and dark side was planned for the second half of Season Five, but it was later dropped.[16]
