"Once Upon a Time" star, Lana Parrilla, has shared the storyline of her character in the upcoming season of the modern fairy-tale legend. During an interview at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, Parilla, who played Regina Mills/The Evil Queen, teased that her character will have to deal with a lot of things in the new season. Her struggles will involve her being the new savior in Storybrooke, her relationship with Robin Hood played by Sean Maguire, and the Dark Swan, according to International Business Times.
In the finale of the last season, Emma, portrayed by Jennifer Morrison, sacrificed herself to the Darkness to prevent Regina from returning to the evil side. With the said turn of events, Parilla revealed her thoughts about her character. In an interview with Buddy TV, Parilla shared that her character, Regina, is "nervous more than anything, just because she's concerned for Emma."
The actress revealed that she is not sure of how things will turn out because Regina is very good at crossing over to the dark side and committing wicked things. She is concerned that Emma may not be able to come back to her true self after being the new Dark One.
However, it seems that Regina will not be a threat at all. In a separate report from International Business Times, it revealed that although Regina possess evil powers, she will not completely turn out to be a villain in the sequel.
As for Emma, the new Dark One, executive producer Edward Kitsis revealed that Morrison's character will have a split personality in the sequel. Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, in a special Comic-Con edition of The Hot Seat, were given the opportunity to answer questions from Twitter with "Yes," "No" or "Can't Say," as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
One question was, "Will Emma have a split personality issue with being the savior and the new Dark One?" Kitsis replied with a "Yes." Horowitz also stressed that Emma will be exploring exactly what her powers are when asked if she will have the powers of the seer and the ability to see the future.
Moreover, many are interested if Emma's son, Henry, played by 15-year-old Jared S. Gilmore, will have his love interest this season and Kitsis teases that it is possible. "I hope so, but he's an awkward, young child," Kitsis said. "Like all 13-year-old boys, they have to navigate their way through the minefield of first dating."
To know what will happen with Emma Swan and the other citizens in Storybrooke, watch out for the next season of "Once Upon a Time." Its premiere episode will be aired on September 27, Sunday, at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
