About that Split Queen arc resolution...
I saw an interesting graphic here: http://mel35.tumblr.com/post/158889273774/who-did-this-who-should-i-credit-should-i-delete that shows why people didn’t like the resolution for the split queen arc and I wanted to present an alternate perspective for your consideration.
This is how I see it:
The Regina we have now has both the light and the dark in her, just as before.
So I respectfully ask the dissenters…what’s missing? If you contend she is still incomplete, what needs to be added? Because the only differences I can see is 1. Regina Mills now loves herself and believes she is worthy of love and happiness, 2. There are two Regina Mills ready for love and happiness and 3. The fairy tale story version of Regina Mills (the Evil Queen) is gone and now she’s just Regina Mills, but happier and at peace with herself like never before.
