I somehow doubt that Regina ever had a sibling. I also don’t know that i think the people from Wonderland are in Storybrooke. I think it was only the fairytale land characters, those from the Enchanted Forest, that got pulled into the real world by the Dark Curse.April 1, 2012 at 7:11 pm #140530angiebelleParticipant
I’d rather that the Queen of Hearts be unrelated- a pure Wonderland character that Regina has just dealt with in the past. Obviously Jefferson has taken her there before. And it makes total sense that Queen of Hearts would dislike having Regina call herself the Queen. “All ways are my way!” she says in the Alice in Wonderland movie. The two Queens have a history together, but I don’t think they are family.April 2, 2012 at 1:11 pm #140629kalliopekiseesParticipant
After watching last night’s episode “The Stable Boy,” I am more convinced than ever that Regina has an older sibling. We now know (for sure) that Cora is the Miller’s daughter. She makes quite a few references about sacrifices for power in Stable Boy. I DO NOT feel she was able to keep her first born from Rumple (One of the many sacrifices she needed to make). I also feel she too had to sacrifice her true love, hence her diatribe about love being an illusion. Is the QOH Regina’s sister, can’t say for sure. But she is the Queen of HEARTS and we have now seen that pulling out and keeping hearts is a family trait.April 2, 2012 at 4:07 pm #140651PheeParticipant
I still reckon Cora is the QoH, actually even moreso since seeing her pull that trick with Daniel’s heart. I got to wondering that was like her own patented move she’d come up with, like her trademark way of offing people, by tearing out their hearts.
Also, for what it’s worth, if you follow the Latin translation for name meanings, like Regina translates to queen, well, heart translates to cor. And heart in Spanish is corazon. So if Regina is the Evil QUEEN, then it makes sense to me that her mother Cora would be Queen of HEARTS.
Though I did like the idea that Regina got her powers by killing her mother, because Rumple told Charming that if Snow killed the EQ, she’d become as evil as the person whose life she takes. But I could still see that theory working in a similar way if Regina finds a way to steal her mother’s powers and then banishes her to Wonderland. Actually, stealing her powers would explain why Regina can do the same trick with removing hearts.April 3, 2012 at 10:00 pm #140842theoniongirlParticipant
Did anyone notice how Regina mentioned in “The Stable Boy” that her mother “never misses a tea time?” 😉 Call out to the QoH, perhaps?

And death shall have no dominion.”

I am really liking this theory. If Cora was the millers daughter, she made the deal with Rumpel for her first born. Her powers to me seem very similar to Rumpels. As far as collecting the first born, I can see Rumpel winning that round, or them making a good deal about where the first born would go. (Same idea as the twins and placing one with the King) What if Regina found out her mothers secret? Used Jefferson previously to get into Wonderland and meet her ‘sister’, in the hopes of angering the QoH into helping with revenge against Cora (this all after Stable Boy obviously). It could have backfired with the QoH instead of joining Regina, chose to take out her anger on both of them and take away father Henry from both Regina AND Cora. Later on once Regina got her mother out of the picture and gained enough leverage, she traveled back to Wonderland with Jefferson to retrieve her father. They are all in the same family somehow. Too many resemblances. I can see Regina always feeling like the unwanted child, the one who got the short end of the stick. If she would have been the first born (and her mother made the same deal) SHE would have been QoH. Its all about bitterness with the Queen. She feels wronged by more than just losing Daniel. She feels wronged somehow with her entire existence.
