Ariel: Do you wanna kiss me?
Ariel: What’s this someday shit?
Diane: But can you answer that we’ll see Hook’s character grow more?
Adam: We sure hope so—he’s not going anywhere.
The amount of time people tell Hook he’s not going to die in canon is amazing.
It’s been going on since 2x04 when Rumple tells him that “[death is] not in the cards for you, sonny boy.”
His whole thing is not dying.
