I’d like for Rumple to at least have a somewhat happy ending. It would be unfair if Regina got a happy ending after some of the things she’s done but Rumple didn’t.
Woah…woah…woah hold the phone!
I know this isn’t a Regina analysis yet, but I’d like to point out that Rumple is the one who created his and I quote: Monster. And not to mention the fact that Rumple has manipulated Snow into killing Regina’s mother, he lied to Belle and killed Zelena(Regina’s only sister and blood family), inadvertently causing the Time Portal that brought along Marian! So Rumple has had his share in taking away Regina’s happiness.
So I think that before Rumbelle are able to saddle together for their happily ever after, the least Rumple can do is first help, and actually counsel Regina through the Robin/Marian mess that he accidently caused! And then Rumple can have his happy ending with Belle.
Not to mention Rumple has over 300 years of darkness that trumps whatever evil Regina may have done.
I’m not saying Regina shouldn’t get a happy ending, just that if she gets one then Rumple should too and vice versa.
Zelena was only Regina’s sister in name only via shared DNA. Family is about more than blood and Zelena wasn’t very sisterly towards Regina.
Rumple may have helped guide Regina on her path to evil but she made her own decisions. Rumple didn’t decide to send children into the blind witch’s house, Regina did. Rumple’s interactions with Regina only occurred when he could gain something out of it.
Regina’s hatred of Snow began to fester after CORA killed Daniel. Regina was wishing she’s let a young Snow “die on that horse” and imagined choking her before meeting Rumple. Rumple didn’t create the hate in Regina.
The only thing Rumple was guilty of in regards to Regina is giving her false hope via Jefferson that Daniel could be brought back to life. Daniel was holding her back so Rumple removed that obstacle. Regina going all “evil queen” was of her own volition.
The “poor little Regina” act is not a direction I’d like to see the show take. I loved Regina in 3A but 3B Regina has been too Mary-Sue and Creator’s pet for my liking. I liked when she threatened to kill Zelena by ripping out her heart because, although Regina is on the side of good now, she is not Snow White 2 and therefore her hypocritical “heroes don’t kill” speech and her deciding to give Zelena a second chance were just OOC for me.
Zelena’s fate shouldn’t have been solely up to Regina. As for the Marian situation, Regina shouldn’t have to be “counselled” by Rumple, just because the woman she had executed turned up and turned out to be Robin’s wife. Regina should just suck it up and deal with the fact that, although she might not get to play lovey-dovey with Robin any more, she now has one less person’s blood on her hands.
Rumple was the one who had really suffered at Zelena’s hands, so the “poor Regina” spiel has no effect on me. Regina threatened to kill Zelena as well, Rumple just got in there first. And if Regina decided to seek revenge on Rumple for Zelena’s death, then that would make her even more of a hypocrite since she’d feel she had the right to seek revenge, when equally, Rumple had the right to seek revenge against Zelena.
