‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 spoilers: Who is Regina getting close to?

Is Regina getting  new love interest on the second season of “Once Upon a Time“? We’re not going that far just yet, but we can at least guarantee that someone is going to be getting in her face for at least one scene.

As you can see from some scans of a new Entertainment Weekly (which were posted online by fansite Once News), there is a scene coming up where David Anders’ character of Dr. Whale — who we are set to learn a good bit more about this coming season — is going to push the Evil Queen up against the wall. Are they end for some “50 Shades of Grey” sort of romance, or is this more of an angry confrontation? It’s hard to read too much into their facial expressions just based on one photo alone, but we’re betting against romance for the time being for one primary reason — it doesn’t make too much sense why anyone would feel anything but rage at the moment for Regina given that they just found out that she is the reason for them being transported to Storybrooke and temporarily forgetting their entire past. She was a wanted woman in the closing seconds of season 1 with her only hope coming in the form of magic that was suddenly starting to run through the streets of the tiny Maine town.

There’s still no real indication as to what sort of character Dr. Whale is in the show’s alternate universe, but we are personally hoping that his name is some sort of giveaway that he is a character from the “Pinocchio” universe. After all, this would give him a number of characters to interact with right away.

Do you want to see Regina have a love interest this season? We want to hear from you below! If you have not heard the big (and possibly even giant) news surrounding Jorge Garcia’s booking on the show, be sure to check out the story over at this link.
