Once Upon a Time Season 3 kicks off with a magical trip to Neverland, but from the looks of a new behind-the-scenes photo, there will be zero happy endings. In fact, things are going to get very violent right off the bat.

On September 18, Lana Parrilla tweeted a picture of the Regina’s leather-gloved hand with a ring covered in blood. It isn’t splattered over it, though — it appears the ring is specifically filled with lines of red.

“Whose blood could be on the Evil Queen’s ring? #mysteryblood #EvilRegals @ABC_Publicity @OnceABC #OnceUponATime,” Lana captioned the photo. Hmm, so did she kill someone in a scene? Just get in a fight?

Considering that she called her character the Evil Queen, that likely means it is in flashback mode, but it could be in Neverland, too. Regina and the Evil Queen are one in the same, even in Storybrooke, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the former mayor got in a fight with someone in order to save her son.

Whose blood do you think is on Regina’s ring? Someone we know and love, or perhaps someone new to Once Upon a Time? Sound off below, and catch the Season 3 premiere on Sunday, September 29 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
