FairyCutie86 Actually I’m not sure I’m wholly committed to it yet, I guess that’s why we call them theories. It still has to be tested and verified, but there sure are a lot of little pieces that could make it a possibility.
Mia I had forgotten about her saying she had it since she was a little girl, so that kind of throws another wrench into the idea. I got to thinking about @mia wrote:
In the Pilot Regina tells Emma that she’s been taking care of the tree since she was a little girl. Regina’s lost love could’ve been magically “inserted” into the tree, though.
I did read the mythology story too. It made me think how Alphaba in Wicked turned her love into a scarecrow to “save” him and it made me wonder if something might have happened here similar to that idea. Thanks for giving the theory a chance. I suppose if the tree had stayed in FTL I might not think the way I am at the moment. I’m having a hard time understanding its’ importance. There is something there.
