Most Once Upon a Time fans are mildly-to-maniacally obsessed with finding out who Dr. Whale’s (David Anders) Fairytale Land counterpart is in Season 2. For now, we’re more than satisfied with a very revealing photo from the set.

Entertainment Weekly went behind the scenes while the OUAT cast and crew shot Season 2 (check out the scanned photos and article here). And in one photo, Dr. Whale and Regina (Lana Parrilla) seem to be getting close.

We see Dr. Whale gripping Regina’s shoulders as she leans against a white column, most likely on her front porch. We know that these two have some kind of close, possibly evil, relationship. Regina seemed to have power over Dr. Whale, maneuvering him to encourage David (Josh Dallas) to choose Kathryn over Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin), and to keep Emma (Jennifer Morrison) away from Henry (Jared Gilmore).

But this photo makes it look like they might become a romantic item at some point. Is Regina even capable of romance? And who would that make Dr. Whale in the Fairytale Land? Is it possible that he’s her Storybrooke version of Daniel, the stable boy she loved and lost?

Once Upon a Time Season 2 premieres on September 30, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
