  • For some of the characters, we know pretty much what their Evil Selves would be like if they are injected with Jekyll's serum, but for some others there's a lot of place for speculation. Here's what I think these characters' evil selves would be:

    The Obvious Ones

    • Mr. Gold - Rumplestiltskin
    • Zelena - Full-on green-skinned Wicked Witch
    • Hook - Dark Hook
    • Emma - Dark Swan

    My Guesses

    • Belle - Lacey
    • Some people say Mary Margaret - Evil Snow, but I disagree. Evil Snow is not really a part of her personality, rather a character made up by Isaac. I think that if Mary Margaret was actually injected with the Serum, we would get a fully cursed Mary Margaret which wold try to kill Regina and Kathryn Nolan.
    • Ruby - the Big Bad Wolf
    • Mother Superior - a Dark Fairy
    • Henry - literally nothing. I don't think he is old enough to have a fully formed evil self. Maybe injecting him with the serum would just spawn a crippled child-like creature.
    • Ariel - Ariel with tentacles┬á:P
    • Archie - Jiminy Cockroach probably
    • Robin Hood - a murderous thief
    • Elsa - Ingrid (yeah)

    BONUS

    • ANASTASIA- THE RED QUEEN (full evil mode)

    What do you think about these? Who am I missing?

    • I think the Spell of Shattered Sight is a good place to start for evil selves. The Evil Queen is very similar in both.

      So that would mean that Hyde!Snow would be unremorseful about her past deeds and snarky... Hyde!Henry would be a moody teenager...

      The way Jekyll describes it, though, is that it's how the user sees their evil self. Regina has always imagined the inner darkness as being "the Evil Queen" - it would be possible that Snow sees hers as something more like Hyde, who has very few similarities to herself. Going by this, Snow's might just be a giant black blob - she's always seen her inner darkness as that black spot on her heart.

    • I also think that if Mr. Gold was injected with the serum then he and Golden-scaly-skinned Rumplestiltskin would be on good terms, since Gold does not struggle with his inner darkness. They would probably just work together.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I disagree that it would be Crocodilestiltskin (Rumple likely sees his darkness as Zoso, Nimue, or the Dagger), but I do agree that they would likely get along, lol.

      With the promos for Strange Case, the haircut and the inner beast lines, I'd really expect Gold to use the serum. Double the Rumple!

    • Emma and Hook wouldn't be Dark Hook or Dark swan because that was the power of the Dark one which they no longer posses, even in thier evil states. The darker half of Hook would be the the Hook he was prior to season 3. Emma dark would simply be what she was in season 4.┬á

      This. SEQ is Regina that's all passion, so it would be the same with Hook (magicless) and Emma. Emma's a bit tricky as we've never seen Emma in her own darkness, but would probrably be just evil, angry Emma, that could kill Cruella.

      Henry? He's already consumed by darkness.

      The rest would be akin to the Spell of Shattered Sight, depending how they view their dark selves.

    • I'm going out on a massive limb, but what if the serum somehow gets used on Gold and a fully evil SerumRumple emerges. This could potentially be the hooded figure that kills Emma in her vision (the figure used dark red/maroon smoke to vanish her sword, Rumple has maroon smoke).

      Even if it isn't SerumRumple, I still have a feeling that a Serum character could be the death of Emma.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • For Henry, it'll likely be total moody teenager who hates everyone in the world, lol.

      For Rumple, it'll be the "crocodile" form, just without the humanity or the remorse about Bae. 

      Emma's one may be like Dark Swan, minus the extra dark magic and the moral control on her actions. Dark Swan was never as bad as EQ or Rumple or Dark Hook. 

      For Killian it'll be the vengeful Captain Hook.

      For Snow, I think it'll be the selfish, spoilt princess her mother was trying to stop her from becoming.

      I think it might be serum-Emma herself... That is, if she decides to use the serum at all, which is doubtful.

    • Emma's enemy that ends up destroying her is herself... yeah, okay, that's just "the moral of our story" enough to happen.

      Regina and The Evil Queen have maroon smoke as well. Could be either of them. 

      Personally I think Regina and the Evil Queen will become one again and then kill Emma.

      Regina and the SerumQueen both have purple smoke. Neither one of them has ever used maroon smoke.

      However, I like the idea of them merging again as SQ looks unkillable at the moment.

    • Jiminy Cockroach is the best idea here lmao

      May I suggest something?

      I've been waiting for the term to be used in the show, and it finally happened with "Strange Case". So here's the idea: rename "Serum Characters/Counterparts" as "Doppelg├Ąngers", the way Gold calls them. What do you guys think?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I really don't like the word "Doppelg├Ąngers". It can be used for anything, not specially this case. I mean, Ingrid using her mirror to talk to Emma was a "Doppelg├Ąngers".

      "Doppelg├Ąngers" can't be only use for this context.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Rwo

      It was? I just like the term because it summarizes the idea of "evil twin" to me. I don't know.

    • I think we missed a big one (at least I missed it if it was mentioned).

      David's Serum alternate would be James.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • If Doppelganger is what they're called in the episode, that's the term we should use. We can specify "Evil Doppelganger" and "Good Doppelganger" if that helps.

      That's actually an interesting point (David/James, not Doppelganger). David's little plot point in Season 5 was that he believed he would have been no better than James if their roles were switched. So that would strongly imply that he sees his darkness as James. I like that.

      I think it doesn't work like that. There's the Evil Self and the Original Self. The original self is not the half that is good, but rather the full person, whereas the Evil Self is an embodiment of the Original's inner Darkness, which expresses itself in whatever way the Original self perceives it.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • There being an original self and an evil self is an interesting concept... IN the last episode Jeckyl was shown creating the serum to delibertely draw out those emotions so as to excise them from the mentally ill. What if he could have done the opposite? Create a serum that draws out the inner good of a person. That would be an interesting storyline for Rumplestiltskin.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • That might have been an interesting story for Rumple, except that Jekyll's experiment failed. Even the so-called evil part was capable of Love and forms of 'weakness'. Rumple pretty much said as much when he parted ways with Hyde.
