Do you have more details on Regina’s love interest on Once Upon a Time? — Micah
NATALIE: We’ll meet her love interest very early on in the season, which presumably means that he or she hails from Neverland. “It’s a side of the character of Regina we’ve only touched upon in the first two seasons,” executive producer Adam Horowitz says. “We’re excited to see more of that and more importantly to explore her capacity for love.” Does anyone else think she could be paired with him?
I betting on Hook then with Regina. although that Felix guy after all he is a man and not a lost boy and is a little younger might work for Regina too.[adrotate group="5"]August 7, 2013 at 1:42 am #203459PheeParticipant
The writer of the article is speculating when they say Regina’s new love interest will be in NL. They even say, “which presumably means.”
Having confirmation that we’ll meet her love interest “very early on in the season” just makes me think even more that it’ll be RH, because we know the actor arrived in Vancouver around the time they were shooting ep 2.
Regina’s goal at the start of the season is to find Henry. That’s her sole focus, she’s not interested in romance, and I’d be surprised if they wrote a romance for her while she’s in NL. Once Henry is saved, and they all get back to SB, that will be when they’ll start exploring the future focus of her character, which will involve the new love interest.
From what we’ve heard about RH having storyline with Belle, that sounds like he must be in SB. They could use his 4 ep arc with Belle to establish his character, and then get him involved with Regina as the season progresses. It would be a natural progression for both characters, instead of trying to force in an unnecessary and unbelievable romance plot for Regina when she’s already got enough other stuff going on in NL trying to rescue her son.
ETA that I just clicked the link to read the full article, and I see that where they wrote, “Does anyone else think she could be paired with him?” the “him” is a link to their story on Sean Maguire being cast as RH. Everyone pile on the RegalHood ship, there’s still plenty of room right up front. 😉August 7, 2013 at 2:13 am #203461HappyEndingsSpectator
I don’t think is Robin Hood, they are going to be in NL for awhile SB is going to be on the back burner. So has to be someone else like I said Hook, or that Felix guy or the “He” who I still don’t believe is PP but I could be wrong.August 7, 2013 at 2:35 am #203463kranenParticipant
I love how they added in ‘or she’ so that they didn’t piss off the Swan Queen shippers XDAugust 7, 2013 at 3:35 am #203464PheeParticipant
I don’t think is Robin Hood, they are going to be in NL for awhile SB is going to be on the back burner.
Just because NL will be the main focus, that doesn’t mean SB and everyone in it will be completely ignored while the NL storyline is happening. And just because the character who will be Regina’s love interest is being introduced early on, that doesn’t automatically mean that their love story will happen early on as well.
We may well see SB in 302, because we know for sure that we’re seeing Belle in 302. If she’ll appear in NL somehow, it probably means she’s doing something in SB and we’ll see it. RH is guaranteed 4 eps, and a story arc involving Belle. I’d expect to have SB and Belle referenced at least 4 times before the rest get back from NL. Those 4 eps can be used to establish RH’s character, (as well as appearing in SB, he could also appear in FTL flashbacks, like I suspect he may in 302, because the actor was in town when they were shooting that ep, and it’s a Snowing ep, and it’s been implied that Snow knew RH).
Like I said in my previous post, I don’t think they’ll give Regina a romance while she’s in NL. It wouldn’t be believable IMO that she’d get interested in a guy which would distract her from saving Henry. Saving Henry is all she cares about in the immediate future. I don’t think it should be assumed that just because her future love interest is introduced early on, that that automatically translates to her interacting with him early on.
If Regina arrives back in SB some time around mid-season (or shortly after), and by then we’ve seen RH’s 4 eps to establish him as a character in his own right, they could then have them interact and maybe actually hook up towards the end of the season. It would pace out the progress for Regina’s character journey and growth at a believable rate.
I love how they added in ‘or she’ so that they didn’t piss off the Swan Queen shippers XD
I’ve noticed some stuff on tumblr recently where people are planning to ship her with Tink. I’m all for crackships (obviously), got no problem with same sex ships, read into and interpret subtext all you want. But I honestly don’t know where people get the idea that Regina being a lesbian (or bi) is ever gonna be canon, and there do seem to be some people out there who believe that she’ll ultimately end up with a woman as her canon partner. If Regina was anything other than straight, they’d have blatantly, canonically shown us that by now…and they haven’t.August 7, 2013 at 5:36 am #203468PriceofMagicParticipant
Regina is definitely straight. I doubt they would pair her with Robin Hood because of Marian being Robin Hood’s iconic true love.
In the BBC Robin Hood series, they killed off Marian and replaced her with another woman and it wasn’t good. The series was then cancelled not long after. Obviously RH won’t be the main part of OUAT but messing with stuff like the established RH/Marian relationship can have consequences.

Even though the actor playing Felix is 26, the character is supposed to be about 18, so I doubt it will be him.
RH is sounding very possible, but that would mean he is coming back for more than a short SB arc with Belle in SB. We will have to monitor his movements.
Hook does seem the most likely of everyone in NL, that we know of. There could be another iconic character in NL that isn’t associated with NL myth (like Ariel) that we will meet.
On the one hand, I agree that we won’t see romance heavily in NL for anyone. But, I’m still not on board RegalHood. Then again, I’m so Hookriel by this point that I don’t want it to be Hook either."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"August 7, 2013 at 8:15 am #203472kfchimeraParticipant
They never said the romance is mutual, present day or true love. We may meet Regina’s version of Rumpel’s thing with Cora.
What if Regina met RH in the past, and then he met Marion and dumped Regina for true love? Hath no fury like the saying goes. Maybe Regina cursed Marion and Baby.

However, Edward Kitsis does tease that she might not accept that love. Previous spoilers have teased that Hook might be a part of a new love triangle on the series with Emma and Regina.
From the Examiner link girlhitscar posted. It says “might” be a love triangle. The problem with that is we *know* they are going to tease CaptainSwan and frankly making it a triangle seems a bit much given that they are supposed to be looking for Henry, not fighting over a man."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"August 7, 2013 at 8:27 am #203477kfchimeraParticipant
I think it is Hook too. I see it in front of me. With the lost of Henry and searching for him, makes Regina (and Emma)emotional. Probally Hook going to comfort her in a way. And she probally going to have feelings for him, but because she can’t really trust him, she doubts if she wants to give her self to him.
In this article there is said that Hook will be a part of a new love triangle with Regina and Emma. http://www.examiner.com/article/once-upon-a-time-season-3-spoilers-love-and-more-changes-teased
That article seems like the author misread a lot of things A&E have said in other interviews. Rufio would NOT be an actual character, they’ve said. I’m still doubtful they’ve teased an actual love triangle as they have avoided saying whether anything romantic would happen aboard the JR. A&E joked about a rhombus, but the article doesn’t say a direct quote but that “previous spoilers” about a Regina/Emma/Hook triangle. What spoilers were those? Is it like they read some other interview with speculation then classified it as a spoiler?
