This episode contains the show's second reference to the 1991 movie "Hook." This one being the title reference to Hook's saying "bad form." The first being in the episode "Lost Girl," referencing the same thing, when Peter says to Emma (about using magic to find the camp) "You broke the rules. That's not fair. Bad form." See more »

Hook's back story is the main focus and with this inclusion, he helps the team of him, Charming, Snow, Emma and Regina seem slightly less a liability for this season.

Though I remain very much skeptical of some of the talents on this show, I must admit that Colin O'Donoghue as Hook has found a way to push himself, and the crew, into a story which you could connect with. Of course though, like with many characters, Hook's back story mixes a few stories together in order to become. One of which is using the story of the Jolly Rogger in order to give him a familiar, though odd, back story.

Outside of his back story though, comes his interactions with Peter Pan which, as for most of the cast so far, is really what helps push him to be at his best. Like with Rumplestiltskin, Peter Pan and Hook have a history and Peter uses this history is such a deliciously devilish way that I will truly be sad when they leave Neverland. But it isn't just Hook who gets used by Peter, but Henry to a point as well. You see, Henry reveals why Pan want's his imagination to star as he turns a branch into a sword, but what is interesting is after Henry accidentally slashes a boy's face, and apologizes, Pan begins to work his magic once more mentally reforming Henry so he can become another lost boy. For, one thing that Henry didn't have back in Storybrook was friends. Yes, he had a loving family, but friends escaped him and now he has all these boys cheering for him and perhaps could get some friendship out of that. It really does make you think that they really put quite a bit of planning into making Peter Pan the villain we long so deserved.

Overall, I must admit this has been the best episode I've seen from this in awhile, but again it is probably due more to Peter Pan than the actual main characters. His mental mind games in which he plays on the weaknesses of the main cast keep things constantly interesting. He gives Hook the opportunity to leave with Emma, but leave everyone behind; he pushes Henry more and more into being a lost boy; and as Hook finally gets Emma's affections, he drops the secret that Baelfire/ Neal is alive and could easily take away the new woman in his life. I mean, what other villain do you know which never really has to lay a finger on anyone but can be so evil? Much less sort of likable at the same time?
