Can Regina (Lana Parrilla) reconcile her differences with Emma?

Can Regina (Lana Parrilla) reconcile her differences with Emma?

Emma’s past catches up with her in this episode and a big mystery is revealed. But first, let’s get to Regina and Emma. Since Marion has been brought back by Emma, Regina has been less than forgiving. At first it seemed that she wanted to do away with the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. However, something hanged and Regina is now trying to help Marion for Robin Hood’s sake since he still loves her. While searching for Elsa and the Snow Queen, Emma tries her best to get back in with Regina who was not having any of it. During the episode, Emma’s childhood come to light. She meets a girl named Lilith who tells her that she is a foster child with no family just like her. Emma believes that she found a friend in Lilith until the truth is revealed. Lilith does indeed have a family. Hurt and betrayed, Emma refuses to forgive Lilith who begs her. Not wanting to repeat her past mistake, Emma reveals this to Regina, also revealing that she thought of Regina as her friend. So it looks like Emma touched Regina’s dark heart. It makes sense since that have teamed on occasion to save Storybrooke and rescue Henry. Plus, let’s not forget that Regina is not inherently evil. She was kind in her youth. Just a lot of stuff happened and she needed somewhere to place her anger. Thankfully, that part of her has ended. This led to Regina’s growth into a redeemable character. Regina apparently accepts Emma’s friendship, declaring that she does not want to kill Emma. However, one question must be asked. With they’re “friendship” revived, will Regina continue her secret mission to find the writer of the story book and force them to give her a happy ending? Better question is how will Emma react?

Elizabeth Mitchell is deliciously wicked as the Snow Queen. Have I said before? Well, I’m saying it again. Just as I enjoyed Barbara Hershey as Cora, Elizabeth was cast perfectly for this role. She continues her pursuit in getting Elsa to better control her powers. Then she manages to win Sidney over and make him betray Regina. With the promise of freedom, Sidney was more than ready to serve the Snow Queen. It seems Gerard channels his Tom Neville character from “Revolution” to add drama to Sidney’s deception. after freeing Sidney, she takes a piece of the mirror he was trapped in and adds it to a broken mirror she has and reforms it. What is the deal with this mirror? However, the Snow Queen’s greatest asset is her connection to Emma. While watching a video of her with Lilith, Emma is shocked when the rest of the video plays out and reveals something disturbing. How happy will Emma Swan be when she is reunited with her foster mother, the Snow Queen?
