➟ The characters



Regina Mills [The Evil Queen]
The Queen, often referred to as the Evil Queen or the Wicked Queen, is a fictional character and
the main antagonist in "Snow White", a fairy tale set in the German countryside, recorded by the
Brothers Grimm; similar stories are also known to exist in other countries. Other versions of the
Queen appear in "Snow White" derivative works, and the character has also became an archetype
for unrelated works of fiction.

In Once Upon A Time, Regina, the Evil Queen, has been called the enemy of happy endings. Here
is a woman with a will to power so dark that she destroyed an entire world just to exact revenge
on her enemies. Once, though, there was a time when Regina longed for her own happy ending, when
she would have given up all the power in the land for the love of a simple stable boy. But when her
mother murdered him, Regina’s heart died with her betrothed. Dedicating her life to the practice of
dark magic, the Queen thought she would never be capable of love again. Something unexpected
happened, though, when she adopted Henry in Storybrooke: the heart she thought she had lost began
to return. The one truly good thing in her life, Regina would do anything for her son. - ABC


Robin Hood
Robin Hood was a character of medieval ballads which were told or sung by wandering minstrels.
In a time where only members of the nobility or clergy could read, the ballads were meant as performance
literature for both the commoners and the court; therefore, as in many folktales of the oral tradition,
the Robin Hood stories were a constant re-creation, continually adapted and changed by the minstrels
who performed them.

In Once Upon a Time, Robin Hood shows bravery and cockiness both in daring to enter the castle
to steal from the Dark One as well as his flippant responses to Rumplestiltskin: “Well, then, I’ll
stick to what I know works,” and “Shouldn’t be a problem. An arrow fired from this bow always
finds its target. Don’t you just love magic?” He exudes the swashbuckling air that is synonymous
with his character in both literary and film interpretations. The Robin Hood of Once Upon a Time is
true to literary character form as a swashbuckling, daring, silver-tongued outlaw, bedecked in forest
green leather, cloak, and bow and quiver and leaning against a tree in Sherwood Forest, a thief with
a noble heart. - Once Upon A Fan

SEAN MAGUIRE

"He has essentially fallen in love with her."

"I think Robin and Regina bonded over the fact that he can see that
she once was somebody, and she's in the process of changing into
somebody new, somebody better, and Robin has a pretty dark past himself."

"The course of true love never runs smooth."

"These two are different in appearance, but they are very similar
when you look deeper. They’re both single parents that lost the love
of their lives. They are strong leaders who don’t scare easily.
And you’ll see, when they are together, there’s an clear attraction
between the two characters."

"Sometimes i think opposites attract. I think it's just a raw, passionate,
fiery thing. The moment Robin meets Regina he's kinda like „Um...alright“.
And that's how i'm playing it. Just this raw, physical attraction. And they
grow and get to know each other."

"I think with Robin and Regina it's just an organic thing that just happens
sometimes. You bump into somebody then all of a sudden you are smitten.
And it's kind of almost a love at first sight."

"I think we [Robin, Regina, Roland, Henry] would be a nice little family."
LANA PARRILLA

"I feel like Marian's going to have to find a new man."

"All i can say is that pixie dust never lies."

"It's written in the stars."

"He's her soulmate. True love? Both?"

"Regina and Robin are destined to be together."

"I will say with all that’s going on, when in the world can “new love” begin?
Well, that is just what happens here with Regina and Robin Hood. That
amongst all the chaos there is always room for love. Their relationship
slowly develops over time and it’s quite entertaining to watch."

"She does have love, and when she loves she loves very deeply, you see
that with Henry and you also see it with Robin."

"I think having a soulmate or when you are destined to be with someone
is very unique. I do think there's only one soulmate for Regina, and i do
think it's Robin Hood."

"Regina's love has to be very manly, and Robin Hood is that."
WRITERS

"The Robin Hood Regina story is one of our favorites."
EDWARD KITSIS
"The story we're telling now has been one we have tinkered with for a long time."
ADAM HOROWITZ
"Regina doesn't take risks, so she's trusting the soulmate feeling in her...soul."
JANE ESPENSON

I'm curious why Robin wanted that box. Does he think he can use the magic in it? Does he want to sell it for money? He is a thief after all. Maybe he wants to use it make a deal with someone? I might be jumping to conclusions, but I just don't trust him at all.

Regina needs to think about better security for her vault. People are always wandering in and out of there.

The vibe I was getting from this story changed drastically from one episode to the next. I thought 6.11 seemed a lot like OQ from 3b when they first met. 6.12 was totally different and not in a good way. I'm waiting to see if wish Robin is going to meet the EQ and if so, what happens then. I suspect the reason he is there has more to do with her than Regina.

It's also possible he is there because of both? Maybe he was unable to connect to Regina because she is not whole, and, therefore, he is scared of her?

I don't know, I'd be scared if I met someone with a vault full of beating hearts... I mean, our Robin was ok with it, but then again, he was already in love with her and already saw her as a heroine when he went inside that vault...

It seems like a few people here are thinking that. I'd never really considered it, but maybe you all are right. . If Regina still had the EQ in her, she might be better able to relate to him. If he's scared of Regina though, I'd think he'd be a lot more scared of the EQ. I think the appeal of the EQ to him could be that she likely won't hope for him to be someone he's not.

I'm preparing myself for him to connect to none of them, actually. It's all about ruining what Robin meant to us and leave Regina alone, because she isn't one of the Charmings nor a romantic pair of any of them, therefore, she isn't allowed a HEA.

At this point, even Zelena is probably going to get a better ending than she will.

ETA: Honesty, what they've been doing with us is just plain evil. And I doubt they will ever show us Real Robin finding peace. His soul will remain obliterated with Regina 'wanting to believe' period. Worst endng of what could have been a beautiful love story. Ruined because she isn't allowed happiness.

Yeah, to me, this is all sounding more and more like a twisted contrivance to force Regina to move on. They need to disconnect from the soul-mate canon with dark-themed finality. I won't even refer to it as closure. I hold no respect for this writing and I hold no regrets in letting the show go.

Bringing Sean back to play this does seem to come across as intentionally malicious towards the unhappy fanbase.

I'll stick to fan-fiction and s1-s3 if I'm feeling sentimental about the show or OQ.

And, of course, as it could be expected, things only get worse every single episode. Let's see how much they are ruining page 23 next week, because, it's clear now that's what they're doing.

Because acter they killed Robin they had to twist the knife and make it even worse. They couldn't be nice to us and give us some hope. Nope. It has to be complete destruction.
