  • This is a weird theory, but I'm wondering if they had orginally planned for Regina to be Rapunzel. Her mother did basically control her entire life and then she murdered her boyfriend like Mother Gothel did in Tangled (in the orginal tale she only blinded him, but that's beside the point) I just wonder if the writers wanted Regina to be Rapunzel but for somehow scrapped that idea and created the Rapunzel we have on Once now.

    • I don't think so. Adam and Eddy have said several times I think that the idea began with thinking about how frustrating it would be to be the Evil Queen and always lose, and they thought about where she could win and decided it would have to be in our world. Then they went from there. Regina was always going to be the character of the Evil Queen, since the idea of the Evil Queen was how the show began.

      I know that Regina was always going to be the Evil Queen, I was just wondering if she was orginally supposed to be the Evil Queen AND Rapunzel, like how Rumple is also the beast?

    • Well we know there's already a ┬áRapunzel in the Onceverse, but allusions can be made. I think she could be an allusion, or they could have lightly based her character on Rapunzel (e.g. she's trapped by her mother). I honestly think it's all just coincedental, but I never noticed the parallels before.
