Once Upon a Time decided that Regina and Hood needed to be separated by death. Am I happy about this? No, I wish their romance could have developed but as I’ve stated before somehow I don’t think his death was as final as Hades thought. The reason: She saw him before he disappeared and Hades was dust as soon as he was hit by the crystal.
So with that being said, I’d somehow during season six have a mysterious note appear. Henry would have written it in his semi-trance. The note would be addressed to Regina, with a picture of Hood and her together and read:
My darling Regina:
We may not be together now, but there are things in this world that we do not understand. Hades didn’t understand all the power of the crystal. Strive for “good” and know I am with you always. RH
This could give Regina the determination to fight herself and win over being totally evil. It also could set up something very interesting when the show finally does its final episode.
Most of my friends will tell you I want the final season to be something like C. S. Lewis’ The Final Battle. How appropriate would it be for Regina to be allowed entry and told to move further up and further in to find Robin waiting on the other hill.
Remember — this is only my two cents and I’ll probably have more later.
