On Once Upon a Time, Regina may be the Evil Queen, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t deserving of love. After losing the love of her life, Daniel, at the hands of her equally-evil mother, the only person she’s been with is Graham, and now he’s dead, too. So, will she finally find somebody to love in Season 3?
There have been hints from show bosses Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis that it’s finally time to “explore her capacity for love,” and reports even suggest that we’ll meet her love “early on in the season,” perhaps in Neverland! And now, the lady herself is confirming this… sort of.
When a fan asked her for details about her love interest, she responded, “I have yet to meet her #loveinterest. You will meet him b4 she does...that's if u haven't already :).” Wait, what? If we haven’t met him already?! That hints that it could be Captain Hook, as portrayer Colin O’Donoghue once alluded to, or perhaps Robin Hood, who returns this season.
Considering that Robin Hood (who was recently recast) is helping Neal get out of the Enchanted Forest with Mulan, there’s a chance they could all end up together. This could be in Neverland, or maybe even Storybrooke — the possibilities are endless.
But wait, there’s more! Lana also dished on the huge plot twists this season, saying, “You'll need a map to figure it all out! Don't even think about a bathroom break!” OK, we’re officially worried.
Who do you think Regina will end up with? Are you nervous or excited for this season? Sound off below!
