Several times in “Queen of Hearts,” Cora expressed that Regina will need her mother. So is Cora truly wanting to help “pick up the pieces,” or is it like, “let’s be evil rulers together”?
Or is Cora still bent on revenge? I’m thinking back to “The Crocodile” when Hook and Cora were near the safe haven. Hook said, “You’ll be able to see your daughter and I’ll be able to skin myself a crocodile.” But nothing was said about Cora’s seeking revenge.[adrotate group="5"]December 3, 2012 at 4:04 pm #163506midnight drearyParticipant
Hard to tell at this moment. I can’t help but shake the feeling that Cora will try to kill Regina. The writers are pretty bent on redeeming our current villains, but at the expense of their downfall.December 3, 2012 at 4:06 pm #163507the fairestParticipant

^This. There’s a reason why Cora is being built up as the new villain. If all she wants is to be a mother to Regina agin, then why all the fear? Do the writers really expect us to shake in fear at Cora’s terrible mothering skills? NO! 😆 She has to have a bigger plan in mind.December 3, 2012 at 7:32 pm #163533
Cora’s definition of helping Regina is completely differerent from everybody elses. Cora “helped” Regina be queen by ripping out Daniel’s heart and crushing it in front of Regina. She then prevented Regina from leaving the kingdom unless she had Leopold with her or until Regina married him.
Cora may believe she is acting out of love for her daughter but it’s not healthy. Regina saying that she loved her mother may actually be her trying to repress the abuse she suffered at the hands of her mother.

Cora *does* love Regina- just in a very unhealthy way! If she were going to kill Regina, she would have done so when she had the chance- when she was pretending to be dead as originally planned. She believes that Regina is going to need her once the curse is broken, and she can’t resist being “needed.”
Cora has messed Regina up psychologically- that is why Regina still loves her. (My dad is a psychiatrist and could tell you all kinds of stuff about the effects of dysfunction in a family.)December 3, 2012 at 8:05 pm #163540
That’s an interesting thought. Cora wants Regina to need her. Cora is going to continue to mess up Regina’s life so that Regina continues to need her.

Cora doesn’t want revenge. Revenge for what? Banishing her to a place where she ended up as queen? Perhaps going to Wonderland was the best thing for Cora. She was going to kill Regina until she found out why Regina wanted to kill her. I think she seriously wants to just be a mother for her daughter in that sick twisted way she always has.
Problem is.. Regina wants to change. And not do magic. And Cora will not be cool with that at all. Especially since she got “bested” by Emma. Cora will bring her daughter back to the darkside, no doubt. And the only animosity between them will be the animosity that’s been going on their entire lives… Cora forcing Regina to be something Regina doesn’t want to do..December 3, 2012 at 8:14 pm #163539
I agree that Cora will bring her daughter back to the dark side but at the same time I think Regina will be a shadow of her former evil self. Cora is going to make Regina dependent on her. The whole Love is weakness/Love is strength is going to come into play here. Cora is going to use Regina’s love for Henry to strengthen her hold over her daughter.

I think what Cora want is too have Regina back and under her control, that is what being a mother means to her.
And the only way I see this going down, is that Cora needs Henry either out of the way or under her control as well. I think Regina will doo everything in her power too make that not happen. She wont let her mother take what she loves most away from her again, like she did Daniel and she wont let Cora trap Henry like she was trapped.
So therefor she will need to finally kill her mother. But a better way to tell that story, like a lot of people have theoriesed, would be Regina sacrificing her own life to set Henry free, so too speak. Though it would be incredibly sad !December 27, 2012 at 1:21 pm #166434playaritaParticipant
To be honest Cora’s definition of help is very skewed and warped. To her she comes across like the mom in Serial Mom, and Dell from Tideland. In that she will kill anyone who gets in the way of her plan and ideals (even Regina herself) and if Regina must be gotten rid of then Cora may preserve her the way Dell did (she did a taxidermy of her mother and the girl’s father)–maybe not taxidermy but much in the same vein where Regina is preserved and possibly more easy to manipulate.
The topic ‘Does Cora truly want to "help" or still seek revenge?’ is closed to new replies.
