    Default Does Regina even love Henry? (Possible spoilers as episodes air)

    Okay, so I read an interview from the actress that plays Regina. She said she felt Regina does care for him and that she is more off put by Emma wanting to come back in his life.

    I'm not sure if the show has done a good job of showing that, they do more to show that Henry doesn't trust her and showing how he is growing closer to Emma. No where have I seen, Regina do something that seemed like a mother would do.

    Yes, she built a park, but out in the woods where any creepy person can just walk in a grab a kid? Seriously, that's the worst idea for a playground to be surrounded by trees in the woods.

    She named him after her father, that's true. But still, I don't think the show let's us see that.

    I don't think Regina is even capable of love anymore after the events of her past.

    I think she cares for him but I doubt she loves him. I agree with jelgate, she's not capable of love anymore after what had happened to Daniel. She blames Snow for that and she is so stubborn about her vengeance that she doesn't even think of a second chance she possibly could have had...

    I doubt it & it is not a coincidence that Regina has Snow Whites Grand Son

    There hasn't been any impression she knows who he is or who Emma is. Of course with time starting back up once Emma decides to stay then that could have given her a clue that something was up. But instead of focusing on Emma she focuses on Snow White and getting her killed/imprisoned.

    Mr Gold found Henry on purpose; this was revealed in one of the earlier episodes.

    I'd like to know why Regina chose to adopt a child, was it just PR or does she actually want a child of her own?

    I think Regina wants to love Henry, but I'm not sure she knows what love is anymore, or how to love someone.

    I think she wanted a child of her own, she might have wanted a child because she thought a child would love her. I think Regina wants to be loved.

    Completly agree with the others, she wants love and doesnt know how to do it anymore.

    I would love to see a Episode about their Relationship before Emma came to Town.

    I doubt it was PR, but we just don't know what the people (including Regina) were like before Emma showed up. We they aware, conscious? Was it like Groundhog Day and they just did the same things over and over. If so, then having a child for PR doesn't make sense if the people aren't going to notice.

    She did this curse 1) to have power over people (esp. Snow and Rumpel) and 2) to ruin their happy ever-afters.

    But there's got to be more. I mean we saw Snow on the run from the law in FTL. What happened that changed that? They didn't seem to worried about her in the last episode compared to Charming.

    Possibly because no one could have a child naturally while time was standing still (like Ashley/Cinderella who had to have been pregnant since forever until Emma came and she could give birth) so the only option would be to adopt one from out of town.
    Unmade Plans (WIP: 11/20):
    Sam's life takes a turn in an unexpected direction when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy. The decision to keep the baby and raise it on her own will alter her life forever. Relationships are put to the test, especially the one between her and Jack. She doesn't know what to expect from him and he surprises her at every turn.

    Yes, that's why, time had stood still. I believe she wants love, but is so consumed with her "dark side" she isn't capable of love the way she is. I believe there is some kind of redemption for her, but what that may be, I don't know.

    I think Regina loves Henry as much as she can love anyone.... which isn't saying much... But somewhere deep down, I think she does care for him.

    I'm watching episode 2 on TV right now, and Malificent just said something that I think sheds a little light on this - that if Regina cast the Dark Curse, it would destory something inside her, she'd be left "with a void that nothing could fill".

    I think that she really does have an empty place inside her, she loves no-one and no-one loves her, and she was trying to fill it by adopting Henry. But she's just as cursed as everyone else...

    Or henry is just another magnificent pawn in the whole thing and Regina wants to 'own' him and have control over him until she needs him. But I also think complicating this all is those old maternal instincts. While she may not love Henry, I think she cares for him.

    I don't even think she cares for him though. I mean he can skip school and she doesn't even care or find out. Talk about unresponsible. Who allows their kid to skip school whenever they want?

    More than a few irresponsible parents, especially in the teenage years. That does not mean they do not love them.

    I do believe Regina is trying to fill that unfillable hole she has had since she killed her father to set the curse in motion. But as we now now Rumpel created the curse long before Regina asked for it with the intention to get to this world to find and get back his son. I don't believe they return to Fantasyland but that either the 2 worlds merge or this world gets a whopping magic enema. That's why even though she tries to care for Henry she really feels nothing inside.

    I think we're going to find out, once and for all, an answer to this.

    'true love' is more than a cliche, I think it's a major plot point.

    I would love to see an episode of how it was when she was raising him. It seems the people in town acted normally, but without any sense of time lapsing.

    I say that since Henry's psychologist greeted him and talked about their sessions. And his teacher gave him the book, so shows they were receptive and responsive to Henry and others.

    So I am just curious how it all was back then before Emma.

    Why did Henry feel so alone that he took up reading the book and believing it? I would like to where his belief in the curse stems from. Why so willing to believe that?

    From the latest episode, "An Apple Red as Blood", we finally see Henry and Regina having dinner, but this is Henry further along his belief that she is evil.

    I just find Henry's absolute resolve in the story's truth to be unfounded when we just don't know his prior relationship to the woman that raised him.

    Why does he hate her so much?

    First of all I wonder how the book got there to begin with we know that Pinocchio (August) rewrote it after the original was lost but if he wrote the original how did it end up in Storybrooke? He fessed up he derelict from his duty to Emma and went to live a not very exemplary life halfway around the world up until Emma unfroze time when she arrived at Storybrook. I think that being of this world Henry and not messed up with fear and guilt as his mother, he realized that people in the town were not aging despite the passing of time and when his teacher gave him the book it gave him all the answers he desperately needed including who his mother was which is why he sought her out. I still say that I would not want to be in Regina's shoes when Emma guns down for her for what happened to Henry.
