Now, we know that this topic is about a month late to even bring up, but since the site was down when the news came out, we figured, what the hey. So after two seasons, and what could be thousands of fan mail from Regals, Adam & Eddy have finally decided, and confirmed that Regina will find love again in Season 3 with a mysterious guy they will not tell. Here is an excerpt of the article for those who have not seen it.
-The Evil Queen Regina has never been lucky in love, simply look at her official title for a small glimpse as to why. Not only did her mother, who could never love her because she didn’t have a heart, literally, kill her one true love, but even her own adopted son cringes from her because of her own misdoings. On June 17 Wetpaint shares that the creators of “Once Upon a Time” claim that Regina may actually get her happy ending in season three. The real question is, with who?-
Now, my fellow Oncers, us Regals have felt that now would be the perfect time for Regina to find true love again since she had a very sad closure scene with Daniel that practically ripped our hearts out. Now many speculate for the romance to be with famous Captain Hook, as much as we love Hook, we jsut feel that they’re better off as partners in crime. FireQueen has shot off, and is gaining fans, but we don’t want things to be any more akward between The Queen and Emma if Regina is dating Neal. I believe we all can disagree on her having a relationship with Gold, because well, that’s weird cause he dated her mother, and we love him with Belle!
The only option we can see is Regina finds a new man, who either knew her before she became Queen, and can bring the other half of good in her, or someone absolutely new who can look past her former wicked ways, and actually stand up to her and bring down the walls around her heart. We prefer the one who can bring down the walls she raised around her heart, someone who could help her, and so that brings us to Neverland, where she will more than likely encounter this new love. Now, we have two wishlist candidates for the new man who would look stunning with our Queen, and if these Regal Bachelors don’t fit the bill for you, tell us of an actor you would like to see with the Queen.

I haven’t thought much about the actor but I had a random thought the other day about the character with whom it might be fun to pair Regina. What about the Tin Man from Oz? The character who is supposed to be without a heart (but is really the most emotional of all) paired with the Queen who literally steals hearts? Might be kinda fun to watch!"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"July 10, 2013 at 8:54 pm #200049HappyEndingsSpectator
I don’t know if there is someone Regina’s age what is she about 40 when time was frozen since Emma and Snow are the same age 28, but I guess Snow is about 56 vs 66 for Regina in real age time so good luck finding someone around that age maybe King George HeHEJuly 10, 2013 at 10:22 pm #200053obisgirlParticipant
I don’t think now is a good time for Regina to start having someone new in her life. I feel like she needs to come to terms with trying to be a good mother to Henry and coming to grips with Emma being in Henry’s life.
I’ve read a few fanfics where she’s with Neal but I’m still really not sure how I feel about them as a pairing yet.
Hook, is out of the question, simply because I don’t think he would want to be a relationship with a woman who knows how to rip into your chest and take out your heart. That’s how Milah died and he knows what it feels like too.
Basically, I think Regina needs to work on herself before she comitts to a relationship.July 10, 2013 at 10:29 pm #200054JosephineParticipant
Maybe Merlin. He’s powerful enough to combat her. They could get into arguments and have blazing magical fights…literally.
We were talking about the Merlin/Mad Madam Mim fight in The Sword and the Stone in another thread and wanting it between Rumple and Merlin, but Merlin and Regina would be fine, too.
The Tin Man is a cute choice, or even the Wizard of Oz.
Personally, I think she needs someone like Archie. She needs someone who will talk her down in a calm and nonthreatening manner but who also won’t put up with her, erm, stuff.

Archie might work but he would have to stop being her therapist, in order for them to have a relationship.July 10, 2013 at 11:03 pm #200060RumplesGirlKeymaster
I agree with something Obisgirl said above which is Regina’s love life needs to be on hold for awhile (shoot…same for Emma, whether you’re a SF or a CSer). Her child is missing. The last thing on her mind is romance. And yes yes yes, I know. Romance can happen suddenly and in the middle of life! But seriously, she has bigger issues to deal with. I don’t want Regaina redeemed just because she’s suddenly got a man in her life and thus learns how to be good. She needs to redeem herself on her own. Same with Rumple. Belle is not his redemption, she may be apart of it, but not wholly. Those two have to redeem themselves.
I go back and forth a lot with who Regina should end up with. I like the idea of Hook and Regina but I also ship Hookreil (it’s a sickness, guys. Once I started I couldn’t stop). I like EvilCricket but I’m open to basically anything for the EQ, so long as she makes progress alone along the way."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"July 10, 2013 at 11:13 pm #200062HappyEndingsSpectator
Actually I think both Emma and Snow need to put a relationship on the back burner. Emma just meet her family and needs to adjust to that in fact I think that can be her Happy Ending. As for Regina, I would say Hook would be good for her but again she has real issues before getting involved with anyone why can’t all this relationship just be on the back burner and besides do they really need someone to make them happy couldn’t they just stay single.July 10, 2013 at 11:14 pm #200063kfchimeraParticipant
Archie seems too wishy washy for her. I like the tin man or maybe Van Helsing, when they go back to a monster world.
Age is funky when magic is involved with frozen or looping time. Chronologically Regina is older than mentally or biologically. I think if Rumpel, who far as we know experienced 300 years of life can be with Belle, then double standard to say a mere 60 year old Regina who is biologically half that age should not be with someone “younger”. Just not someone she wanted to adopt though!GregReg? Nooooo!

There was a thread a little while back discussing potential characters Regina could be paired up with. One of the characters mentioned was Robin Hood, (this was before we’d seen him in the show), and I sorta liked it, and lately I’ve been thinking about it some more…and I still like it.
Of course, it all hinges on whether or not he’s even still alive in present day, and if Marian is still with him. I’ve been on board with the theory that pregnant Marian came to our world, had Tamara, and died though. That theory is all just speculation, not based on anything concrete, so it may not prove true, but unless and until we get something to disprove it, I’m liking it. The recent casting call info suggests they’re re-casting RH, so it’s looking like we’ll be seeing him again in some significant capacity, otherwise they could have just stuck a brand new character in there, instead of going to the trouble of re-casting a character whose story they’ve already begun to tell.
So going along with the assumption that RH is alive somewhere and single, I think they could be a good match.
Regina first and foremost needs someone who would be a good influence on her, (which is why I don’t ship HookedQueen, because they’re both broken and would drag each other down and he wouldn’t be able to give her the kind of support and encouragement she needs. It may be hot, but it wouldn’t be healthy). RH is a man who will be ruthless if need be, but he does so with good intentions, he does so to help people. So he and Regina would share the mindset of “sometimes you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do and wield your power”, but he could help her see that there’s a positively motivated way to go about that. She’d benefit from learning that, because right now she’s just baffled as to why all of her power doesn’t bring her happiness or get her what she wants. It’s because she’s using it wrong. She’s never gonna look to the Charmings as an example to follow in how to wield power, so someone else who has a good heart will have to be the one to show her if she’s ever gonna listen.
We’ve seen RH use magic to heal Marian and their unborn child. So it’s looking like he understands the need to use magic sometimes. Regina’s never gonna be able to give up magic. I know she’s been likened to an alcoholic, and I don’t disagree with that description, but Regina ain’t never gonna give up the bottle completely. If she’s with RH, he’d likely understand the need for magic to be used in certain situations, because he’s been there and done that, so he wouldn’t be all judgy if she didn’t give it up completely.
If the theory about him being Tamara’s long lost baby daddy ends up proving true, they have the parental thing to bond over. He never got to be a father to his daughter, and she’s got a strained relationship with her son.
It’s been hinted at that RH came from another forest, maybe somewhere in FTL completely separate from Snow and Regina’s kingdom. That could mean that he didn’t spend his life constantly hearing about the Evil Queen and how horrible she was, which means he wouldn’t have necessarily pre-judged her. It’s likely that Snow spent time with RH, judging by what she said to disguisedRegina in The Evil Queen. Also, judging by what Snow said to disguisedRegina in that ep, it’s not likely that she’d have ranted on to RH about her evil step mother. She’d have given the same story about a kind hearted lady who once saved her life and has sadly gone down the wrong path, but Snow hopes there’s still a chance for her. If that’s all that RH has heard of Regina thus far, I reckon he’d be willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and get to know her if they met in present day for the first time.
Anyway, in my head, Regina and RH are pretty much a perfect match. Now watch them show him living happily with Marian in present day and destroying the headcanon I’ve got going on. 😛
