Regina lost not only her true love a second time, her mother was killed, her sister was killed, she had to give her son up more times than I can count, sacrificed her own happy ending to save the people she cursed, then lost her soul mate, her very last chance at happiness! The Villains have PAID their dues! An eye for an eye, well all of that is paid now….Storybrooke has seen them suffer for their sins! Now it’s the time to cut print and move on! Villains deserve their chance at happiness, since they’ve clearly paid a heavy price for their wrong.
Wait, really? You think everything is settled in terms of “an eye for an eye”? While I don’t think that that’s the right way to go about redemption or justice in the first place (to quote Gandhi, “an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”), Regina would have to die many, many times over for that to be the case. I mean, you really think she’s made up for this?:
Or this? (The bones of the children she sent in to get the apple from the blind witch):
I could go on, obviously, but those are, as far as I recall, the largest death tolls she’s wrought in terms of sheer numbers. “An eye for an eye” would entail her being murdered as payment for every murder she’s committed, so it’s really not even close there.
Okay, I had a couple more paragraphs here, but I got rid of them because that’s the crux of what I’m saying. I just don’t know how you can make up for all of that (and so much more), I guess.
