As nearly ever fan of "Once Upon a Time" knows, the newest villain will be the Wicked Witch. Rebecca Mader has been cast for the part and viewers are anxious to find out what her story is. So far there have been bits and pieces of information being revealed, but on Feb. 10, WetPaint reported on a potential clue on why the Wicked Witch is coming and it could do with the identity of her parents.

Warning: If you do not want to know "Once Upon a Time" season 3 spoilers, then stop reading.

Many fans are guessing that the Wicked Witch has some sort of beef with Regina, who is also the Evil Queen. But she isn't the only connection. Co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis told the TV Guide that the Wicked Witch is not just connected to Regina, but to other characters as well. They also said that fans will discover who her parents are. Could Regina and the witch be related? Perhaps they are sisters? The fact that they stated that viewers would find out who her parents are seems to indicate that they are important in some way and will be another thread to tie the story together.

One theory on why the Wicked Witch is coming to Storybrooke has to do with Robin Hood. It has been reported that when season 3 returns, he and Regina will cross paths. Could she be given a second chance and if so, does this have anything to do with Wicked?

Fans will have to wait until "Once Upon a Time" season 3 returns on March 9 to find out.
