“[Dr. Hopper] will be working with the Queen in some upcoming episodes to get her the help that she needs … There’s a strong push to try to set things right.” Raphael Sbarge (x)
Well, I for one cannot wait to see Regina going to the “bug” for help. It promises to be an interesting dynamic after their scene in 2x02.

“She’s called a few different things, which are inappropriate to say. But she’s called Regina still. Your Highness. Your Majesty. She’s not in a great place, let’s say. The curse is broken and the cat’s out of the bag. Everyone knows who she is, and they want justice and rightfully so. She is going to have to fight long and hard for a couple of things. One, most importantly, her son, Henry. I think that is pretty much the main focus of this character in the second season at this time. She’s lost her son, and that comes with [some] challenges. She’s less concerned with the curse being broken right now, as she is with getting her son back, and she realizes that it’s something that not many people see. I see it because I play the character, but she’s a very hard, a very loyal, committed person and I mean this in the sense that when you think about her love for Daniel, in the first season, she does everything after the point when he dies to get back at Snow White for him. She’s really kind of hung up over [it] and [it’s] very similar with Henry. Losing Henry, I think if she doesn’t get Henry for the next twenty years, she will not stop clawing and fighting for that person. [That’s what] I saw in the character in the second season, and [she is] also extremely resilient.”

Once Upon a Time fans already know that Regina will lose her magical powers Season 2, Episode 1: “Broken” (airing September 30), but will the Evil Queen ever gain her powers back? Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Lana Parrilla at the 2012 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party in West Hollywood to talk about Regina’s powers and her relationship with Mr. Gold.
Wetpaint Entertainment: How do you think Regina has changed since season 1?
Lana Parrilla: I think we are going to see her in a very different life this season. She’s on the path to redemption! She’s tried every avenue and it doesn’t quite work the same anymore.
We know that she loses her powers in the premiere, does she get them back?
Well, she gains a different kind of power, not the one that you so think. She’s almost enlightened in a different way. It’s quite interesting.
Can you give us any scoop on Regina and Mr. Gold’s backstory?
Oh God!! You know I think they are two peas in a pod. I think they love each other and they hate each other.
Does Regina have any friends left in Storybrooke?
‘No need for a fuss. It’s just little old me.’ ♛
