From a young hopeful girl, to the Evil Queen that tore away everyone’s happiness, to the Mayor, to redeeming herself and becoming a savior, to the Good Queen. Regina’s journey has been the most complex and layered throughout the realms. She hit the lowest of all lows and came out triumphant. She is the first elected ruler of all the realms, she is the Good Queen.
The thought of a Regina/Roni/Lana Parrilla centric episode sends a wave of excitement through the fandom — for good reason. She’s easily one of the strongest actors on this show and has carried it from the start. This episode of Once Upon a Time was no different. The question remains, where the hell is her Emmy?
