Warning: Once Upon A Time Season 6 spoilers are ahead.
Last season on OUAT, Regina managed to separate herself from The Evil Queen, her villainous “split personality.” However, it didn’t go quite as planned and The Evil Queen survived. Not only did she survive and is separate from Regina, she plans to cause chaos throughout Storybrooke. So, when Once Upon A Time returns, what should viewers expect?
According to Fashion & Style, The Evil Queen may not be able to be stopped in Once Upon A Time Season 6. Once released, things could go very badly. Executive producer Edward Kitsis told Entertainment Weekly that The Evil Queen will show Regina just what it looks like when everyone’s happy ending is ripped away. The co-creator also explained that Lana Parrilla’s two roles are going to be “very separate.” The Evil Queen is disappointed in what kind of person Regina has become and has pretty much declared war.
As EW noted, fans should expect to see how the separation will affect Regina. It isn’t just a matter of what The Evil Queen does, but you can’t take something away from yourself without some changes happening. Will it change Regina even more and if so, how? Since it seemed that The Evil Queen was not able to be killed, will the only way to stop her be for Regina to pull her “other half” back into herself?
“There’s a lot of questions to be asked about what it means when you separate parts of yourself,” OUAT co-creator Adam Horowitz teased to EW, “and can you really separate these parts of yourself?”
Kitsis added that the question is exactly why they created the Jekyll and Hyde (Sam Witwer) story. It makes OUAT fans ask if it’s even possible to get rid of the darkness that one has within themselves.
Fashion & Style speculated that The Evil Queen won’t be able to be stopped because without being part of Regina, there is no love and compassion. There is also no remorse, which makes the villain even more dangerous.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lana Parrilla spoke about the challenge of playing dual roles. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actress said it would be fun to play both Regina and The Evil Queen. As fans know, the OUAT character has always been both women, but they were a part of one body. In Season 6 of Once Upon A Time, the characters will be separate individuals.
Other Once Upon A Time Season 6 spoilers include Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and Rumple (Robert Carlyle) going on an adventure together. Eventually, Belle will wake up. However, some fans are worried that Rumple dealing with Mr. Hyde will have unforeseen consequences. Also, will Belle forgive Rumple or will “Rumbelle” shippers see the couple split up?
There are also a few new characters from the Land of Untold Stories coming to Storybrooke. Expect to meet Sinbad, Scheherezade, and Morpheus in Season 6 of Once Upon A Time.
What do you think is going to happen with Regina and The Evil Queen when OUAT returns? Can the villain be stopped or will she succeed at ripping away everyone’s happy ending? What do you predict will happen with the other Storybrooke residents? Fans will have to wait a few more months before finding out.
Once Upon A Time Season 6 premieres September 25 on ABC.
