    I believe that Regina knows that it's her mother pulling the strings and that she should be angry at her. However, I still found it disappointing. I remember when the big scene between Little Snow and Cora happened, I thought "That's it? We've seen Regina expressing all this hatred because of something a child did to her?" And then at the end, Regina flat out told MM that she knew MM was innocent but that she would find a way to get rid of her, anyway, just because of what Snow did as a child. If Snow had done something as an adult, then the writers could have added more layers of complexity, a la that episode where we saw EQ as the unhappy stepmother who betrayed her "lover". As it is, this storyline just feels awkward and weird.

    I think between her lover being killed and then finding out Snow had told even though she knows Snow is a child...IMO...she went as kuckoo as the mad hatter you just don't see that..something in her snapped and she needs an outlet for her vengence

    I was wondering if there might be some kind of familial connection between EQ/Regina and Mad Hatter. Insanity runs in families. Would explain a lot!

    Great pickup! I did know that, but never thought of it. In Latin, it's cor/cordis with similar deriivations in all the Romance languages.

    I was half wondering watching the rerun tonight (which has my favorite scene of the season in it at the end with snow and the dwarves) if the new guy in town is someone who wants Rumpy's "power." or something.

    Consider the info found at this link to be SPOILER material. It contains info about the next "new" episode (The Stranger), airing on the 22nd.
