I’m re-watching Once Upon a Time before season two starts, and I was just watching “The Stable Boy” when I had a crazy idea. What if the Queen’s mother is Rumplestiltskin’s first wife? Here are the clues:
She was born into poverty, and her father was the miller: just like in the Rumplestiltskin tale.
She complained bitterly that love was always wonderful in the beginning, but then it goes away: and R.’s first wife left him.
She has magic: Rumplestiltskin has magic.
…okay so actually, there isn’t too much basis for this theory. But it could be true! *conspiracy music*
