I can't believe no one's started a Once Upon a Time thread yet. So I will. Warning, if you're not caught up on the episodes then don't read, possible spoilers. I'll try to hide them but, ye be warned. I watched the recent episode and I have to say the new villain's background is.....oh brother. She doesn't have to be Regina's you-know-what to hate her. The creators seem to think that the only valid reason for the heroes to hate the villains is if they're related. Like Snow and Regina, David and King George, now Regina and HER. The creators could have just made it that (new villain) was Cora's apprentice but was thrown aside, or magically exiled, when Cora became pregnant with Regina. Besides, one of the villain's pets got Regina's blood remember? And the villain put it in a phial, a fusion of Regina's blood and a magic potion which would allow her to break the Blood Magic protection. I love the series, it's one of my favorites, but this development almost made me cry inside.
