We know Regina (Lana Parrilla) loves Henry (Jared Gilmore) on Once Upon a Time, but we don't really know why she adopted him in the first place. However, a recent spoiler from TVLine suggests we might finally get an answer.

As executive producer Adam Horowitz told TVLine, the show is "going to explore the origins of what made Regina go get Henry," and "what made Regina want a child."

Given how central Henry is to Regina's story and her potential redemption, it definitely makes sense that we'll get a chance to learn more about how she came to adopt him in the first place.

We have a guess about when we'll see this, too. As many fans know by now, Season 2, Episode 17: "Welcome to Storybrooke" is going to feature flashbacks to Storybrooke before Emma (Jennifer Morrison) showed up and started changing things. That's right: We're going to see Storybrooke in full curse mode. 

It would make sense to us that Episode 17 might give fans some insight into what Regina was like in Storybrooke before she adopted Henry, and why she decided to bring what she thought was a normal a kid into a cursed world.
