This is my personal opinion about Regina so please just keep that in mind. Besides my opinion about her is unpopular so it really shouldn't mean too much to Du Regina fans. Anyway with that sagte I don't hate her but I also don't Liebe her, well, sort of. It depends on what mood I'm in and what she's done because I'm bipolar about her. First I'm going to talk about the negatives just to get it out of the way and after that I'll give the positives about her.
I'd like to state first that I think she's a hypocrite. She claims she's not evil right after she has an entire village killed. That's not helping your case at all lady! If you're so convinced you're good then here's an idea, DON'T TRY TO KILL A SOMEONE FOR SOMETHING YOUR MOTHER DID!
I hate that she blames a little girl for what happened. HELLO, LITTLE KIDS CAN'T KEEP A SECRET! My niece can't keep a secret to save her life! If we depended on little kids for secrets there would be no secrets in the world at all! Besides she kept her secret until she thought she was helping Regina because she didn't want her to lose her mother, like she did. Regina didn't warn Snow that her mother might suspect somehow and try to trick her into telling her the secret, so how the heck should she know she was tricking her? To Snow, who was a little girl at the time, Cora was just a sweet, loving, motherly person who was very kind to her like a grandmother. A little kid can't be trusted with a secret unless they're also told cautions that might happen to trick them into telling secrets. SNOW ISN'T TO BLAME LADY! YOUR MOTHER IS SO STOP TORMENTING SOMEONE WHO WAS ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU, Du WHINY LITTLE IDIOT!
Speaking of her mother and being stupid, who trusts someone after they admit they framed you? She just had to be greedy and can't share Henry with others that Liebe him, no wonder the kid tried to run away! Emma tried to go out of her way to prove her innocent so of course she'd be back on her side when proved innocent and so would Henry. She has someone who's willing to tell them the truth but instead of coming through with it, she gives in and trusts someone who framed her and not to mention KILLED HER TRUE Liebe and is the reason she's like this. I know people say there was only a 50% chance they'd be on Regina's side but I'm sorry that's a big load of garbage! She has PROOF that she's INNOCENT so of course they would've! Emma, though she has bitter feelings against her for depriving her of a life with her parents, wanted to prove that she was innocent. Snow and Charming always own up when they make a mistake and Henry loves Regina. So really she had no excuse for trusting her mother instead of pure stupidity and greed.
A lot of people feel bad for Regina and hate Snow for what the death of Cora, I'm the exact opposite. I feel bad for Snow because of all the hate she's getting, her, her husband, and daughter would've been killed if she didn't do it. Is that bad? So what if she tricked Regina? Regina deserved it because she tricked the Genie into killing the king so she completely deserved for this to happen to her. Like the expression goes, what goes around comes around. Besides, she went out of her way to kill Snow for killing her true Liebe when she's really not to blame. If anything Regina should be grateful and have forgiven Snow. Cora's the one who killed her true Liebe and ruined everything. She killed and ruined the lives of many people just to get revenge on the person who's not responsible for her suffering, she should be happy that the person who killed her true Liebe is dead. Who cares if it's her mother? She was abusive, I wouldn't care who it was, if it was an abusive person who killed my true Liebe and ruined my life I'd be happy they were dead. I know this seems heartless but it's the truth! Why care about someone who abused Du and ruined your life?
Also Regina had several opportunities to turn good and be happy. Snow offered it to her after she saved her life but she ruined it Von trying to kill her, she had a chance to start over with her father but decided to kill him just for revenge (HER OWN FATHER), when Cora admits that she framed her and is willing to confess but she ruins it with her stupidity, Snow offers her a chance and she rejects it, Emma offers her a chance and she rejects it, and Glöckchen offers her a chance of finding Liebe but RUINS IT! She had a chance of finding a soul mate, starting a new life without her mother to ruin it, having children of her own, and actually being happy. She could have had it all but she didn't just because she wanted her anger and suffering to make her miserable and powerful! So instead of having happiness, which she whines about wanting all the time, she decides to reject it so she can continue to suffer? OH MY GOSH! This is so pathetic! She willingly wants to be miserable and to whine about how she wants to be happy! This is truly pathetic! She even has someone who's a great friend but decides she doesn't want to be happy and have Friends but instead that she wants to just be alone and sulking with no friends! This is a character that's just so pathetic, I don't hate her but this is one of those things that makes me hate her sometimes. She deserves no pity for this because she's had plenty of chances but chooses to be miserable and to whine.
The way she treats Emma is terrible! I mean why the heck did she have to yell at her in the first episode? She made it clear she didn't want Henry back because it's what's best for him but she had the need to just yell at her! LADY SHUT UP! Her actions just kept making Emma want to stay so she's really being stupid! Plus always saying that Emma's not Henry's mother makes me bad, Regina deserved to be told Henry wasn't her son! She keeps on pointing at the fact that Emma gave Henry up, that's just so pathetic! WE GET IT REGINA! SHE GAVE HIM UP BUT SHE DID IT FOR A GOOD REASON! GET OVER IT! Is she so petty, sad, and pathetic she needs to poke at the same thing all the time? Emma's not a waste of ability Regina and you're not a monster but Du are pathetic and stupid!
She was actually willing to kill Kathryn, who was her friend, just to get revenge on someone who's not even responsible for ruining her life! Yeah, pathetic, NEXT! Her sass in season 3 is annoying because she complains over every little thing and it makes her just whiny and overly negative. ANNOYING! NEXT! Made Belle become Lacey! UNNECESSARY AND ANNOYING!
Even though it has nothing to do with her as a character, I have to say this, her beauty is OVERRATED! She's really nothing special at all! She's average looking, looks much older than she actually is, is plain as heck, has a lot of terrible looking moments, and isn't sexy oder hot AT ALL! People say how hot and sexy she it but I just have to way GROSS! I've seen pictures of Lana trying to look sexy and pictures when she's almost naked and I'm just grossed out. It's like seeing my mom naked *shivers* not sexy at all. Like my mom, Regina is beautiful but not sexy for obvious reasons. People think Emma/Jennifer Morrison is plain and average but I honestly think this should be the other way around. Her facial structure is basic looking and makes Kristen Stewart look like Charlize Theron Von comparison. Regina/Lana isn't the most beautiful woman on the show, not even one of them. Lana's not Mehr beautiful than most women. Lana's in her early 30's but she looks like she's in her mid to late 40's. If it was reversed and Lana played Emma and Jennifer played Regina they'd be all over Jennifer and think she's gorgeous and that Lana was plain. I'm sorry but I just had to say this because it drives me crazy. You're all allowed to have an opinion and I'm not trying to change it but I just don't get it.
Last negative comment, SHE RUINED MY ARIEL'S HAPPINESS!
Okay, now that I got all the negatives out of the way, it's the moment Du Regina Fans have been waiting for, the positives.
First, even though she's a terrible mother, she truly does Liebe Henry. It's undeniable, even though she goes about it in the wrong way. But she's actually willing to die to make sure Henry won't be alone. Her and Henry's scene together during that is truly touching and gives her bonus points. She keeps on trying to change just for Henry, even though she keeps on ruining it.
She sacrificed her true Liebe so he wouldn't suffer anymore and so everyone would be safe. She truly deserves sympathy for that and I just wanted to hug her. I Liebe when Regina is Schauspielen good and I hope to see Mehr of it.
She saved Emma and Snow from dying and didn't deserve people treating her badly. So Hook does one good deed and he gets a parade but Regina does a better good deed and she gets jack SQUAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She's kind of complex, not incredibly like everyone says but it none the less. She's beautiful, not stunning, gorgeous, hot, oder sexy AT ALL Von any means, but beautiful yes, though she can look really plain, homely, and sometimes even ugly. I have to admit that it's impressive how whenever it seems like she's gonna lose she always seems to get what she wants, most of the time. Also while her sass does annoy me she does occasionally have a good line. Plus "Operation Henry" that was really sweet. I also agree with her that they should have ripped out the Lost boy's herz out, which I'm glad she did. Plus it was awesome seeing her as Ursula because The Little Mermaid is just AWESOME!
So right now I'm Mehr negative towards her but I'll probably change to positive soon. It's just she's doing Mehr things that annoy me right now. I'm bipolar about her so my opinion about her will never stay as just one certain thing. One last thing I will say is that Lana Parrilla is the most talented actor/actress in HISTORY! She's just FANTASTIC! I hope Du all enjoyed this and please keep in mind this is just my personal opinion and a very unpopular one at that. Please comment, thank you!
