After making huge strides in their relationship in Season 5, Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) have finally exchanged those very important “I love you’s,” which should be an easy recipe for a happily ever after, right?
Showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis seem to think so, if your idea of happily ever after includes a happy couple, a comfy couch and a full Netflix queue — that’s basically heaven in our books, in case you were wondering.

“I think that we’re going to see what happens when Emma tries to have a normal relationship moving forward,” Kitsis says. “What happens when it’s just like, let’s get dinner and Netflix like people do.”
After so many trials and tribulations with Dark Ones and Underworlds, we think Captain Swan has earned some Netflix time, and maybe even some Netflix and chill time.
We don’t expect “Captain Swan” to stay happy forever though, with Mr. Hyde (Sam Witwer) and the Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) roaming the streets of Storybrooke. Still, we’re looking forward to Hook and Emma getting some down time to just be a couple, while other couples (Rumbelle or Snowing?) deal with the tough stuff.

We did notice, however, that Emma might be paying a visit to the resident therapist when Season 6 picks back up.
In a cute Instagram photo, Jennifer Morrison teased that Emma “has a lot on her mind lately.”
Is it just us, or does the couch and blanket she’s laying on look exactly like the ones found in Dr. Archie Hopper’s (Raphael Sbarge) therapist’s office? Could Emma be seeking professional help after all she’s been through, trying to deal with her past actions as the dark one and finding her happily ever after?
“Once Upon a Time” returns September 25th at 7 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
