Once Upon a Time fans: Are you shipping The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) and Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) as hard as we are? If not, you had better get with it, because co-executive producer Eddy Kitsis opened up to TVLine about the blossoming relationship between these two and it’s giving us serious life!

Remember back when Tinker Bell (Rose McIver) was playing matchmaker for Regina earlier this season and set her up with a man with a lion tattoo on his forearm? Well now that homegirl knows he and Robin Hood are one in the same — meaning he’s her one true love — she’ll be experiencing a flood of emotions later on this season.

“Regina has a very hard time being happy. It frightens her,” Eddy told the site. “And she has spent so much time suppressing things, that when she faces them she’s not sure how to react. So, for us, it’s about wanting to explore when and how will Regina open her heart, and to whom.”

It’s no shocker that the only person she has let into her heart thus far has been Henry (Jared Gilmore), and she doesn’t exactly have a great track record when it comes to keeping a man happy alive, so it’s understandably hard for her to let someone in on a deep level.

That being said, we’re more than ready to see Regina let Robin in — assuming he is the one she decided to let in.

Once Upon a Time airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
