- "A man unwilling to fight for what he wants deserves what he gets."
- ―Killian Jones
Captain Hook is first known as Killian Jones, a pirate captain who the then-human Rumplestiltskin meets in a bar while he is attempting to claim his wife, Milah. When Milah is taken by the pirates, Rumplestiltskin pleads with Killian to let her go but Killian laughs at the cowardly man. Some time later, after Rumplestilskin becomes the Dark One, he sees Killian in a bar again. He confronts Killian who at first laughs at this "crocodile" but then realizes who Rumple is. He tells Rumple that Milah is dead and Rumple challenges him to a duel. Rumple is about to kill Killian when Milah arrives, very much alive and Killian' long time lover. She bargins for Killian' life by offering Rumple a magic bean that can transport him to another world to find Baelfire. Rumple is willing to forgive Milah for leaving him but not for leaving their son and rips her heart out of her chest. Killian attacks but Rumple slices his left hand off. However, Killian manages to keep the bean and uses a hook he attacked Rumple with for a new hand and thus earns his new name. Captain Hook then uses the bean to open a portal in the water to a land where he and his crew will never age (Neverland) and find a way to get revenge on Rumplestiltskin.
During the time when Belle was locked away by Regina, Killian breaks into her cell and fakes a rescue mission hoping that she would tell him how to kill Rumplestiltskin and when he finds out that she doesn't know how, he knocks her unconscious. On his way out, he comes across Regina who praises his skills as no one was able to fight their way through her defences before and asks him to do her a favor and in exchange she would help him kill Rumplestiltskin. Regina asks Captain Hook to travel to wonderland, kill her mother, and come back with her body which he agrees to do. After he arrives, he gets captured by The Queen of Hearts' who turns out to be Cora (Regina's mother) and threatens to rip his heart out if he doesn't comply to her orders. Hook takes Cora's assumed body back to Regina and when she finds out that Regina still loves her, she spares her daughter and runs away with Hook to an island that she protected from Regina's curse by her own magic and tells him that when the curse gets broken they will travel to the land of no magic and that's when Hook will get his chance to kill Rumplestiltskin with an ordinary weapon.
Killian is shown in the present as Cora comes up to him in the fairy tale land, showing him the remains of the wardrobe that can cross to Storybrooke. Killian is eager to follow to finally settle the score with the "crocodile" that took his hand and love. He poses as a one-handed blacksmith to infiltrate the rebel camp that Cora (posing asLancelot) controls. When Cora massacres the camp, Emma, Mary Margaret, Mulan and Aurora find Killian the sole survivor. Emma suspects him and forces him to confess his true identity and how he was sent as a spy. He tells them he can help them get back to Storybrooke if they take him with. Killian says they need to find his special compass and leads them to a beanstalk that leads to where it is hidden.
Killian and Emma travel up the beanstalk to retrieve the compass from the giant and along the way Killian is, very obviously, flirting with Emma. He assists Emma in knocking the giant unconscious and remarks that they make a great team, much to Emma's dislike. They search for the compass but the giant wakes and traps Killian under several large rocks. Emma later frees Killian, but chains him to the wall because she doesn't trust him. Killin later escapes the giant and meets up with Cora. Rather than kill him for his betrayal, Cora decides to simply abandon him. He later sneaks into Cora's camp and frees Aurora (who had earlier been captured by Cora's zombies), telling her to pass on the message that Emma can trust him. In a twist, however, Killian reveals that he stole Aurora's heart, and gives it to Cora so the princess can be controlled. Cora and Killian then use Aurora's heart to catch up with them and succeed in their quest only to be stopped in their tracks by Emma (whose heart was too strong for Cora to rip out). However, Cora and Hook eventually make it to Storybrooke through a magic bean that Hook stole from the Giant. After Cora had abducted Archie Hopper and made it look like Regina had killed Archie, Killian is shown by Cora that she has Archie tied up in his ship. Killian then interrogates Archie in order to find out where he can find Mr. Gold. When Mr. Gold is at the border testing his new spell-breaking powder with Belle that can enable them to leave Storybrooke, Killian finds them and wounds Belle. Before Killian can kill Mr. Gold, a car coming into Storybrooke knocks him off the road before it crashes. Killian survives just as the ambulance arrives. Killian ended up in the hospital handcuffed to his hospital bed and with his hook confiscated by Emma as she asks him where Cora is. Killian just mentioned that Cora is off pursuing her own agenda.
