Same thought as hjbau, SW tells Cora, Cora confronts Regina and tells her to forget it, Regina considers running away with the stable boy (maybe that is what SW tells), and Cora stops them by killing Regina’s true love (or turning him into a toad) and ruining her happiness, which Regina perceives being SW’s fault. I don’t know, somewhere along the way, the thought occurred to me that perhaps she kills her mother in revenge, but then she loses her mother and her lover and vengeance seldom brings true satisfaction, and when she realizes what she has done she blames it on SW, who if she hadn’t told Regina’s secret to begin with, she perceives none of this would have happened and she would be living happily ever after having run away with her true love. Who knows, maybe her lover is the apple tree. We know she brought the tree with her to the palace.
Idk, I just don’t see Snow White killing Regina’s love on purpose. I got a crazy crackpot theory last night that maybe Cora, Regina’s mother uses Snow to kill Regina’s beau. I thought maybe she gave a poison apple to Snow to give to Regina’s love and that’s why Regina wants to use a poison apple to get back at Snow White.
I just don’t see Snow White being tainted by evil. So, whatever happened, I don’t think she meant to, meaning it was inadvertent and there was no malicious intent.
