I wasn't ready to Lose Zelena
I’ve made no secret that I love Zelena, even though she’s so complicated and hard to love. So as a fan of hers, this is a hard hit.
But more so, I cannot imagine Regina Mills next year without any of her family (Snow, Emma, now Zelena). That is not her happy ending. They made it clear time and again that for Regina a happy ending would be finding peace with herself and having her family around her. THIS IS NOT THAT.
As a fan of Regina Mills (who is honestly the only reason I watch)– this feels like a near fatal body blow.
I can’t imagine the show without 3/5 of its female cast. That is not the Once Upon A Time I signed up for.
And honestly, on a personal level, I think Bex is the awesomest. And knowing it wasn’t her choice makes it even more bitter for me. She’s talked about struggling for work and being essentially homeless when the part of Zelena came along– this is such a sucky life turn for her and I empathize. I’m sure she’ll bounce back. But still, that burns.
Ok my loves, I think I’m going to take a step out of fandom for a while. Otherwise I’m going to end up saying a lot of things that I probably shouldn’t while I’m working through my stages of grief.
Wicked Always Wins.
