So I like the Tamara is his daughter idea, but with a wrinkle that I think Marian started to age. So before the curse hit, RH sent Maraian away to keep her from dying. She is the grandmother we saw. Somehow Tamara ends up growing up in the land without magic. Her mother pretends to be her grandmother but is bitter about magic.
I am in love with this idea! The price for healing her so the baby would be born was that she’d age rapidly, and she had to pass herself off as Tamara’s Grandma as a result. Don’t even care that it would totally invalidate my own crack theory of Grandma being Dorothy, I just love your theory, KFC!
Didn’t she say Regina twice? Once could be accidental meant Rumple but said Regina but twice?
Yes, she said it twice during a lengthy answer to a question. Once I’d be more likely to just write it off as a blooper, but twice, I’ve gotta wonder, especially now that we know she knew Tink.
