‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2: Regina’s [spoiler] returning!

If you think back to the “Once Upon a Time” season 1 episode “The Stable Boy,” you will surely remember one thing about the character of Regina — she was not always the “evil” woman that she has become. As a matter of fact, all she really wanted was to be with the man of her dreams in Daniel — that is, until Snow White accidentally set off a chain of events that led to him being taken away from her in dramatic fashion.

While there is no assurance that the Evil Queen of the fairy tale world is ever going to have a happily ever after, there is some interesting news to report courtesy of some Twitter responses by executive producer Adam Horowitz — Daniel will be coming back! (You can check out the full timeline of his responses here.)

It is unclear just how much Noah Bean (“Nikita”) is going to be a part of the show, but an appearance is nonetheless still an appearance and it gives us hope that maybe the character is somewhere in Storybrooke ready to sweep the Queen off her feet yet again. If nothing else, his appearance could give some more insight as to Regina’s past, or potentially even what could be happening to her in the future. Last we saw of Lana Parrilla’s character, she was smiling wickedly after realizing that Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) had unleashed magic into Storybrooke — which may be her only real refuge now that every knows who she is and how she is ultimately responsible for the curse that has brought them all there to begin with.
