Alright Once Upon a Time fans, here’s the scoop. Lana Parilla, who plays Regina Mills, AKA the evil queen, opened up to E! News at the Monte Carlo TV Festival, and talked a little bit about season two, and what she expects to see. In the final minutes of the season finale the curse was finally broken and all the characters remembered who they really are (which was totally awesome!), but the mysterious black smoke was very confusing, to all but the evil queen that is.
“It was a very bold choice, but a very successful one because now I feel like we can go anywhere in the next season. Now that the curse is broken we can really do anything.” Parilla said, even though she was as surprised as everyone else that the curse was broken this early. “What I foresee happening, is somehow Fairytale Land is going to surface in Storybrook because you know it’s buried underneath. But I could be totally wrong!”
That’s an interesting assumption, because they really only have three options, either they stay in Storybrook, go back to fairytale land, or combine the two. She was however pretty sure she will have lots of power, “Magic is everything to her and Rumpelstiltskin (played by Robert Carlyle, AKA Dr. Rush from Stargate Universe). I’m wondering if she’ll use it to get Henry back.” Even though we would all like to see Regina stay as far as possible from Henry (played by Jared Gilmore), Lana Parilla seems to insist that their relationship should be fixed.
“I hope to see that Henry comes around somehow, I really think it’s an important relationship not just for the audience but for these characters to resolve. Regina can’t lose her son completely! However she finds a way, be it magic or honesty or just pure love, I hope she’s able to get Henry back somehow.” Interesting… I know I’m not the only one sitting at the edge of my seat till next season, but I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see what happens when Once Upon a Time returns.
