Why do Hook and Emma get special treatment here? Do other, perhaps even more deserving, characters just get the short end of the stick because they're not the hot couple? It certainly seems so.

If a woman suddenly transformed her boyfriend into the Dark One against his consent, no matter her good intentions, it would be a pretty big deal. It's akin to someone who quit smoking after hundreds of years of smoking becoming a smoker again against his will.
What is it with Once Upon a Time and women who force men to do things against their wishes? That's what Hook discovered when Emma went gaga over the pirate.
