Regina has had some troubles since the series returned from its winter break. She has been framed for a murder she did not commit by her own mother, and this has put her under suspicion. She is now hiding out from the town. Parrilla spoke about the crime and how she felt about the twist on the series. She said the following:
"I'm constantly surprised. I don't always agree with all of it either, by the way. I don't. And there's a fight in me. But instead of making the call I go, "Okay, what's that about? What's the resistance?" Meryl Streep said, "When you read a scene that you hate or you don't like, that's where the character lies. So, you have to go deeper." So, I'm forced to go deeper. I don't like that Regina kills Archie for the sole fact that he represents the conscious mind. I question why would she do that? Obviously there's a twist. But that's what he represents for everyone."
Parrilla also spoke about her character and what is inside her. Snow White believed that there is still good within the Evil Queen, and Parrilla agrees with that. She said the following about the redeeming qualities her character has inside her:
"I do believe that that woman is in there somewhere. Sometimes it's lost for the moment and for a long time. But there are redeeming qualities to Regina. It's getting back in touch with the person she was before the betrayals, before the trauma, before she was damaged. One little incident, someone's wrong choice or bad decision, or a betrayal of some kind can mess someone up for the rest of their lives. That's where she is."
Regina will know her mother is in Storybrooke soon enough, and this could cause new issues for the woman. She does love her mother, but she knows how truly evil her mother is as well. This will cause conflict for the character, according to the actress.
Fans are buzzing about this series on social media. One fan said the following on Twitter recently:
