Wow…..Just…..Wow….Reading All The Recent Posts About Regina Has Me Like:
DEAR STORYBROOKE/Once Fandom:
Hmm, yes, lots of posts…here are two points from mine (plus a new one) that I think are some of the most important (and most concrete):
1. She said she was planning on “getting rid of a baby”, not just “getting” her or something. That absolutely means kill her. That doesn’t seem like much of a “soft spot for children”.
2. In the most recent episode, she just waltzes right on in to Sidney’s cell. She’d apparently forgotten about him, but instead of apologizing or admitting that she never did care about him, she encourages his unrequited affections and uses him for her own ends (despite his protests at being put back in the mirror). That all seems very “Evil Queen”.
3. You said she can’t regret any of the things she’s done before she got Henry because that would be like saying she regrets having gotten him at all (which I don’t agree with, but that’s not the point). But what about what she’s done since getting Henry? Why can’t/couldn’t she regret those things? She’s done some awful things since then too–how about gaslighting and alienating Henry and trying to murder people he loved? How about murdering Graham? How about conspiring to have Kathryn Nolan murdered (she thought) and framing Mary Margaret for her murder? Separating Hansel and Gretel for no reason, and sending them and Emma out of town knowing full well that the curse would hurt them if they tried that? Helping her mother almost get Rumple’s dagger so she’d become the Dark One? And that’s only a few things off the top of my head…Why doesn’t she regret any of that?! Even if she said she wanted to take any of those things back, she’d still have Henry. And in fact, he’d be a lot happier.
I just can’t see how one can be redeemed when one refuses to admit to having done terrible things and take responsibility for them, I suppose.
