MM forgiving Regina was possibly my favorite scene of the series so far. Not only was it the best thing she could have done, I agree that she was very Snow-like in doing so. I agree with RiddleRaven that she is now more like her real self than she was when David asked for forgiveness. Maybe if he asks again she will forgive him now.May 3, 2012 at 5:54 pm #145351GaultheriaParticipant
I thought the offer of forgiveness seemed more like revenge. MM described Regina’s pain and evil deeds in too much detail for the offer to be completely genuine. I’d say that MM is a kind character who values forgiveness and wants to take the high road but can’t resist striking back in a way that is particularly effective for her.

I do think, strangely enough, that both Snow and Mary wish that Regina was happy.May 4, 2012 at 12:47 pm #145444miaParticipant
Yes, I get that feeling, too. Given one of the sneak peeks it does seem Snow knows she's the cause for Regina's pain and thus means it genuinely. On the other hand she's pretty pissed at her wedding throwing that sword, but who can blame her. lolMay 4, 2012 at 1:45 pm #145455
Actually, it was Prince Charming who threw the sword at Regina on his and Snow’s wedding day.

You are absolutely right, of course, lol. I meant drawing the sword and pointing it at her.May 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm #145462
Okay, now I understand you better. 😉

It is a hard thing. I think Snow genuinely regrets what happened and feels terrible about it and wishes that Regina could be happy, but at the same time Regina has done some horrible things. Killing Snow’s father, the huntsman incident, the apple incident, the whole accusing Snow of being a traitor, and threatening them at the wedding and the curse. And that is just what we know. A lot to be angry about, but i think both seem real. Like you may regret it, but Snow still needs to act against Regina.May 4, 2012 at 11:05 pm #145502
Added to that list of SW’s grievances is the fact that she had to give up her only child to be sent to an unknown world not knowing who would raise her. She missed the first 28 years of Emma’s life. Also, she lost 28 years with her husband. When MM remembers and realises the full impact of Regina’s selfishness, I think she may have a harder time forgiving and forgetting, so to speak, since she’ll remember everything.

It hurts a lot more when someone you know and care about does something to you then someone who doesn’t.
Indeed! There’s a whole other level of betrayal she’s gotta get over before she forgives David.
I liked that MM’s speech had a similar feel to the letter SW wrote to EQ.
Touche’. I was going to just say that too. The note she wrote as the Huntsman was closing in on her and made him read to the Queen. The look on her face when he read the note was the same face she made after MM said those words to her. The reactions were both identical.
She forgives Regina but does not forgive David. It does make sense. David is not so Charming and MM is not quite Snow even though both are becoming more their real selves, they both are going to make decisions that are not to our liking because they are just like us. We hate the decisions we make sometimes too. MM’s voice is starting to sound more Snow-like.
