No one does epic love stories better than ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.” Sunday’s mid-season premiere of the fantasy drama re-introduced the world to the complicated relationship between Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Robin Hood (Sean Maguire). However, it’s unclear what their future holds as Regina knows in her heart that this new version of Robin isn’t the one she fell in love with, as he perished last season. When it comes to the many couples on “Once Upon a Time,” which one is your favorite? Vote in our poll below.
Other love stories highlighted in “Tougher Than the Rest” include: Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), who continue to reunite after being separated by spells and wishes; Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), who are currently kept apart by a sleeping curse; and the “Once” version of Beauty and the Beast, Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle). Among the main cast, there’s also the burgeoning love story of Henry (Jared S. Gilmore) and Violet (Olivia Steele-Falconer) that we’re sure will pop up in upcoming Season 6 episodes.
True love has played an important part of the “One Upon a Time” mythology since the pilot, when Prince Charming’s kiss broke the curse that kept Snow White asleep. This season, the writing team led by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz put a new twist on the sleeping curse concept when Regina’s alter ego the Evil Queen cast a spell on Snow and Charming so that neither can be awake at the same time. Emma also used the power of a mother’s true love to wake up Henry from a sleeping curse back in the Season 1 finale.
