Spoilers are ahead. If you don’t want to risk knowing any details about ABC’s fairy tale drama, then stop reading now.
Last season, Regina Mills (Lana Parrilla) separated herself from the Evil Queen. Her alter ego was supposed to die, but something went wrong. Even without a heart, the OUAT villain survived, and this is bad news for Storybrooke. There have been a lot of Once Upon a Time Season 6 spoilers regarding this, but most have been focused on the big bad herself. A new report from Christian Times teases the Evil Queen’s relationship with Henry (Jared Gilmore).
According to the website, the Evil Queen still considers Henry her son. It is true that she was part of Regina, who is Henry’s adoptive mother. However, it is a bit strange that the villain would even think about a relationship with anyone. After all, she has no heart, no remorse, and feels nothing for anybody. The publication wondered if the Evil Queen would try to pull Henry over to the dark side. That is a possibility, but there is another theory that is just as likely.
What if Henry is somehow able to stabilize the Evil Queen on Once Upon a Time? Is it possible that he could use his relationship with Lana Parrilla’s character and neutralize her? Could Henry get her to feel love for him? If so, could that love cause the Evil Queen to stop destroying Storybrooke and everyone in it?
At Comic-Con 2016, Jared Gilmore said that instead of two moms, Henry now has three. It almost seemed like he was hinting that there would be some kind of relationship with the Evil Queen, just like he has with Regina and his birth mother, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison).
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis teased that Regina and the Evil Queen were not split in half, but separated. Apparently, there is a bit of a difference between the two. The villain is just one part of Regina that was taken out of her. In the speculation, it was brought up that the only way to stop the Evil Queen might be to put her back into Regina. That is still a valid theory, especially when fans think about what Adam Horowitz told Entertainment Weekly.
“There’s a lot of questions to be asked about what it means when you separate parts of yourself and can you really separate these parts of yourself?”
Once Upon a Time co-executive producer Edward Kitsis had something to add and referenced Jekyll and Hyde.
“That’s why we did the Jekyll and Hyde [Sam Witwer] story, which was, can you really eliminate the darkness inside you? Is that really the best way? Those are the things we’re really looking forward to exploring this season.”
Horowitz’s statement of if an individual can really separate parts of themselves brings up another question. Even though Regina and the Evil Queen are separated, maybe there is still some wickedness in Regina. Like the showrunners mentioned at Comic-Con 2016, the characters were not split in half. It’s not like Regina is all good and all the bad went to the Evil Queen. There was a theory that Regina would be too soft after the separation, but Lana Parrilla squashed that speculation. So, if this is true, then perhaps the Evil Queen has a bit of Regina left in her, too? If Henry can find this and tap into it, could he neutralize her on OUAT?
What do you think will happen with the Evil Queen and Henry? Fans will find out soon enough. ABC airs the Once Upon a Time Season 6 premiere on September 25.
