The Jones’ Brothers
Hook and his brother work on a ship captained by Captain Silver. When Liam gets papers from the navy he gives it up for his brother. Captain Silver steers his crew into a storm for some reason and Hook and Liam stand up to him by staging a mutiny and force him to stand down. Hades shows up to Liam and tells Liam to willingly sink the ship. If he does, he and his brother will live and they will get their dream of being in the King’s navy. Hook follows his brother’s orders when he steers into the eye because he trusts him, but the ship crashes with Liam and Hook the only survivors. They are found by the King’s navy and Liam earns the spot for commission on his ship.
Cruella is driving through hell, looking for the quill with Henry, but Henry meets up with the Apprentice who warns him not to make the mistake of resurrecting Cruella. He warns Henry that he should only use the quill to record and not create stories, but Henry wants to be the hero this time. The Apprentice gives in and tells him that the quill is protected by a spell, but the Sheriff here took the key from him. If he finds the key he can find the quill. And with that belief in Henry to do the right thing, the Apprentice helps Henry and can move on.

If they finds Hades’ story they can use it against him.
Snow and Charming help look for the book, but it isn’t in the place its in in real Storybrooke. Liam goes to Emma and tells her she isn’t good enough for his brother.
