As we start to slowly near the end to “Once Upon a Time’s” first season, we are starting to get something in the way of tangible answers coming in our direction to key questions. As for one of these questions — why the Evil Queen is so against Snow White — we are going to have an answer sooner rather than later.
Sunday’s episode is entitled “The Stable Boy,” and is expected to detail some of the deep-infested hatred the Queen had for Snow long before she met Prince Charming and had her short-lived happily ever after. Unfortunately, the episode synopsis via ABC does not help too much when it comes to relaying new information on this particular story — but it does teach us that Regina once had a shot at true love before throwing it all away:
“Emma continues her exhaustive search for evidence that will prove Mary Margaret’s innocence in the murder of David’s wife, Kathryn. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was and before evil blackened her soul, Regina must choose between betraying her mother, Cora (Barbara Hershey), and marrying for true love, or betrothing royalty and living a regal – but loveless – life; and the event that caused the Evil Queen to loathe Snow White is revealed.”
While we may be finding out this answer Sunday night, don’t expect any other major story to be resolved just yet. There are still four more episodes coming up this season beyond this one, and while we are going to find out more about Kathryn in the coming weeks don’t expect too many answers in the way of the curse.
Are you excited to see more layers to the Queen’s character?
