I get Regina being wary of leaving Henry with Hook because what she said about him is her impression of him and she really hasn’t got to know him that well plus Henry is her son too. Same with her view on Rumple, she and Belle would have totally different opinions on Rumple. Though this leads me to something that bugs me about OutlawQueen, I like it and all but Robin is happy to let Roland near Regina? A woman who ordered the slaughter of an entire village? A woman who had his face on a wanted poster? Seriously? Since nobody remembers the missing year, I would’ve thought Robin would’ve at least been a bit wary of Regina in Storybrooke in regards to Roland’s best interests rather than letting his judgement be led by his trouser brain and looking at Regina’s bum saying “from this angle, Evil seems to be a misnomer” The woman has killed many, the name “evil queen” was chosen by her subjects not by her to make herself seem scarier. I would’ve thought there would at least be a period of time where Robin doesn’t want to get involved with Regina then realises she’s not as bad as he thought etc. Regina knows Robin is her chance at happiness, Robin doesn’t so why would he logically entertain the thought of romancing her when his last remembered interactions of her are as the evil queen?
I dont remember Robin allowing Regina near Roland while in SB? I know Regina went lurking in the bushes to spy on Robin while he was playing with his son, but Robin doesnt know that (that we know of anyway lol).
The way I look at their ‘quicker’ progression (atm), is that IF they became a cannon, TLC couple while in EF for that missing year, then the fact they’ve only had a memory wipe (not personality switch like curse 1.0), wont change those actual ‘True Love’, love feelings towards each other- they will still feel that same TL pull/attraction (as if they are actually bonded by TL/ together), but wont know why they feel that way (at least on Robins side anyway)- if that makes sense?
