Oooh i’m so glad we have a character discussion forum now :). For a while I was deadset on Regina being the Miller’s daughter, and I had all kinds of proof. But now, i’m starting to rethink the theory. I regretfully came across some spoilers for future episodes. And they do sort of make sense. Like whenever Regina got the curse back from Maleficent, Maleficent said “Not even its unholy power can bring your loved one back from the dead.”. I had always thought that Rumplestiltskin killed her baby. But I don’t think Rumple would ever actually do that. In the episode “What happened to Frederick” Katherine asks regina if she has ever been in love and Regina says “Yes, once.” And you can see real pain in her eyes. So that leads me to wonder what Snow actually did to her. Because the writers are going with the theme “evil is not born, its made.”.
