For those of you Evil Regals out there, you can put your poison apples away: Lana Parrilla is going to be on the “Once Upon a Time” panel at Comic-Con, after all. Despite being one of the most-popular actors on the show, she was at first an omission; however, TVLine now confirms that you will see the woman behind the Regina role present for the Q&A session (which should also contain a few magical surprises about the road ahead).
When it comes to season 3, Regina’s storyline may end up being one of the more interesting ones to follow. As for why, the simple answer is just because she is still very much on her road to attempted redemption. The last that we saw of the character, she was trying to go through some sort of redemption to prove that she had more in her than the capabilities of being evil, and we should see her battle those demons on the road (or sea, we should say) to Neverland.
With that being said, though, we hardly imagine that this is going to be smooth sailing at all for these characters. She and Captain Hook are not going to suddenly become nice people without any capacity to be evil, and they are going to face major temptations. One of the real questions is going to be whether or not they are that interested in fighting them, or just being good when it is convenient for them to do so.
