The Once Upon a Time Season 2 premiere (Season 2, Episode 1: “Broken”) raised a lot of questions, some big, some small. One moments that particularly stuck out to us seems minor, but might have larger implications.
As part of her plan to get rid of the wraith, Regina (Lana Parrilla) gets Jefferson's (Sebastian Stan) magic hat. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) comments that she knows that it's Jefferson's hat, and Regina replies, "Who's Jefferson?"
This moment leaves us baffled. Regina knows who Jefferson is. They interacted a lot both in Fairytale Land (where Jefferson was still his name) and in Storybrooke last year. And yet, when she asks the question, Regina seems genuinely confused. Has her memory been altered?
And if it hasn't been altered, why is she lying and pretending she doesn't know Jefferson? Is there a reason she doesn't want Emma to know about her connection to him? While obviously Regina doesn't want to give away all her secrets, just knowing who Jefferson is doesn't seem worth a lie.
What do you make of this moment? Let us know in the comments below.
Catch the next new episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, October 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
