Once Upon a Time Season 2, Episode 20: "The Evil Queen" will, as the title suggests, give us a taste of Regina (Lana Parrilla) at her most regally evil in the flashback — and maybe the present, as well. Want to know more? Read on for the official synopsis.

Here's the official synopsis of the episode from ABC:
With the aid of Hook, Regina attempts to put a plan in motion that will help transport herself and Henry back to Fairytale land. But her plan revolves around a fail-safe that was planted within the curse, which if triggered could wipe Storybrooke off the map — and kill all of its inhabitants; and Emma’s suspicions about Tamara grow. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, the Evil Queen asks Rumplestiltskin to transform her into an unrecognizable peasant in order to kill an unsuspecting Snow White, with the twisted aim of earning the love and respect of her subjects.
Okay. First of all, when do Hook and Regina team back up? Based on the preview for the season it looks like Hook is plotting against Regina. Does that happen after this episode, or is his "aid" here part of his plot? We're thinking the latter, given that Tamara and Greg had Hook captured at the end of Season 2, Episode 19: “Lacey." Unless Hook escapes from them, we have to assume he's working against Regina, because there's no way Greg would willingly let him help the woman who stole his father.
Second of all, we're excited to see Regina in what sounds like full Evil Queen mode in the flashback. Her faltering attempts at redemption are interesting, but sometimes we need some awesome, campy evil in our lives. (And we miss the Evil Queen's awesome outfits!)
