strong>Who will Robin Hood choose: Marian or Regina?
After the unexpected return of Marian, Robin Hood is now faced with a major dilemma, one that is addressed head-on in the show’s return. Does he honor his vow to Marian or does he start anew with Regina? A decision is made. “I have a certain living situation I have to deal with, with a current romance and a wife coming back from the dead,” Sean Maguire tells THR. “That seems to be the situation last season ended with. Suffice it to say, Robin Hood does come to a truce of sorts.”
Please don’t let this “truce” be that Robin decides to carry on seeing Regina romantically behind Marian’s back.
How does Emma cope with the guilt of causing Regina’s unhappiness?
Well, it’s complicated. “Emma can’t apologize for saving a life, but it’s not her plan to mess up Regina’s true love,” Morrison says. “She’s trying to toe the line. She’s trying to prove that she truly is Regina’s friend and that she truly wants what’s best for her, but also protect Marian.” Juggling a vengeful Regina won’t be an easy task for Emma and that becomes an ongoing season-four thread. “Ultimately, Emma is trying to keep Regina in a good place in her life. She’s worked so hard and come so far from her villainous mindset that it would be tragic, in Emma’s eyes [if she returned to that] because she’s become Emma’s friend,” Morrison says. “[Emma]‘s going to spend time fighting to prove her friendship and fighting to keep Regina in a good place.”
It’s a bit strong to describe Emma and Regina as “friends”. They’re allies but wouldn’t call them friends yet.
How do David and Mary Margaret navigate parenthood?
“It’s hard because they’re finding this all out as they go. It’s basically the first time they’ve [raised a child]. They don’t want to lose [baby Neal] like they lost Emma,” Josh Dallas tells THR. “Emma has suffered a lot of psychological repercussions because of it. She’s isolated herself because of it. They want to raise Neal right and still honor Emma as their child.” Says Ginnifer Goodwin, Snow and Charming “are confronting a lot of their exceptionally guilty feelings in having lost the opportunity with Emma, who has a remarkable story with Hook.”
Why is Hook brought up when he is irrelevant to the question and answer? Hopefully Snowing, and Snow in particular, aren’t just going to drop Emma because of the new baby.
Will Mary Margaret get back into the workforce?
The simple answer: Yes. Though her immediate focus will be to raise Neal, Goodwin says, she will find herself taking on a new job. “She has been thrust in a brand-new job while she’s trying to juggle [raising a newborn] and she’s expected to rule as she is technically the ruler of the Enchanted Forest transported to Storybrooke,” she says. Morrison hints that Mary Margaret will be taking over a position of considerable power for someone else within Storybrooke.
I don’t think Snow is going to be mayor. I think it could be something else but I don’t know what.
How much trouble is Mr. Gold in?
“Belle hasn’t heard any of [Mr. Gold’s] secrets at all,” Robert Carlyle says, referring to beginning his marriage to Belle with a lie. Carlyle hints that though things may seem perfect between the newlyweds at the start of the season, “it’s going to be bad at the end of episodes nine and 10 for Rumple.”
I hope this doesn’t mean we’re going to enter the winter hiatus with RumBelle separated. Please let RumBelle work it out.
