Once Upon a Time season 1 ended with magic coming to Storybrooke, and that’s going to affect everyone, whether they want to use that magic or not. What will this mean for Regina?
OUaT Season 2 Spoilers
TVLine talked to Lana Parrilla about what Regina could be up to next. After all, season 1 ended with everyone knowing what she did and with her losing Henry to Emma. Then the purple smoke, which Parrilla called “more symbolic” and “a better link to something ‘magical,'” than the smoke was originally (it was “almost green“), took over Storybrooke and it looked like there was hope again for Regina. So what could be next? According to Parrilla, “She seems somewhat conflicted. She’s going through this huge loss with her son [Henry, now effectively Emma’s ward], and yet now there is hope. If she needs magic to get her son back, then so be it.” Uh-oh, that means that everyone’s yet again going to be in trouble because of Regina in Once Upon a Time season 2. (Did you really expect anything else?)
Meanwhile, there is the matter of Rumpel getting his hands on that magic as well, and Parrilla did say, “I’m curious to see what happens between Rumpelstiltskin and the Evil Queen…I imagine that whatever it is, it is not going to be pretty.” After all, there were already issues between the two. Now that he knows she’s responsible for him and Belle being separated all this time, people are certainly not going to want to end up in the middle of those two. Will everyone have to take sides? It’s basically choosing the lesser evil of the two. Could there be those on Regina’s side, those on Rumpel’s, and everyone else in season 2? Whatever happens, the scenes with Lana Parrilla and Robert Carlyle were among the best of the first season, so it’s hard not to be excited to see what season 2 holds for their characters.
