I don’t know if she actually *is* Nurse Ratched as part of the show’s storyline. I think she was just made to resemble her as a gag- a nod to the character, but it remains to be seen if she actually behaves like her.
Perhaps, however, considering that her appearance matches the notorious Nurse Ratched and that she was, in fact, the nurse that oversaw the psychiatric ward for the SB Hospital, I’d lay my money down on her being one nasty piece of business.
Apparently some people are even speculating that her fairy tale character may be Ursula. 😉
I could have written it off as just being an innocent nod to the character from the book if it had been left at just one visual reference. But seeing Eddy Kitsis say, “Sure looked like Nurse Ratched to me,” with a sly grin, makes me believe that she IS that character from the book. The whole setup of the psych ward, the secret entrance, having it in a dank, dark basement environment, with sparse cells instead of rooms, plus the fact that Sidney got locked up there just so Regina could stash him somewhere out of the way, that all adds to the sinister feeling of it all. And now they’re making a point of using that same nurse again, in a scene with an out of control mental patient, when they could have had any random nurse in the scene. That cements for me that she’s Ratched in particular, and she’s bad news.
