Outside of her duties as a double agent, Regina will find herself with a new mission after fearing something is amiss with Robin Hood (Sean Maguire), who left Storybrooke with his family in the midseason finale. “Regina has a dream that spooks her,” she says. “It’s like her subconscious is trying to tell her something. It’s almost like she has a premonition in a dream. She wakes up and instinctively feels like something is wrong and she’s worried about Robin Hood. You’ll see her taking the next step to make sure he’s safe, and if not, what’s going on and what needs to be done to help him.”
Naturally, Parrilla is shy to say whether that means Regina will leave Storybrooke to track Robin Hood down. But she does somewhat quell OUAT fan fears about whether Robin Hood was really the man in the bar fated to be Regina’s soul mate. Is this really true love? “I think so. That’s at least what I’ve been told, and that’s what the story has been saying for quite some time. But who knows; maybe he isn’t,” she says. “Maybe there is someone else out there.”
