SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Night Shoots With Colin O’Donoghue, Emilie de Ravin & Lana Parrilla in Steveston

Update: #FakeHook. It did not occur to me that Hook was not Hook, but the Dark One himself. This is how Rumplestiltskin tricks Belle into giving him back the dagger. I didn’t know Robert Carlyle was on set that night.

Once Upon a Time looked a lot like Supernatural last night filming on a log-strewn beach in Steveston’s Garry Point Park.  The setup: a dark night with smoke machines, a cool car and a clandestine meeting between Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) against the backdrop of fishing boats passing by. There is one other commonality between Once Upon a Time and a typical Supernatural shoot that is too spoilery to mention. [Updated with photo of the Dark One’s dagger].

Crew then drove Cruella De Vil’s Pantherville to Moncton Street where they shot a scene of Regina (Lana Parrilla) walking by it into Granny’s Diner looking like a runway model in black leather jacket, pencil skirt and leather boots.
