Hi; just commenting on the anti and pro Regina debate. My 2 cents worth.
Regina has done horrid things . Though she seems to be connecting a little with the other characters, she still seems to believe the end justifies the means. Can she be redeemed, or has she gone to far?
Since this series is from writers from Lost,maybe, maybe not.
”He’s our You” from Lost,was one of Kitsis and Horowitz’s episodes. They had Sayid shoot a kid, Ben to be precise. Answering the time travel question of if you could go back in time and kill Hitler when he was young would you?
The whole episode illustrated, as the song from “Shor in the City” said, that Karma is a bitch. Ben uses Sayid, Sayid shoots Ben. Jack refuses to help Ben. Jack can’t help Sayid and so on.
This was a problematic episode. Yes the kid was Ben, but he was a child. Sayid is shown grief stricken, with his hand shaking as he shoots the child. His eyes are shielded by his hair, and Naveen Andrews, an actor known for his sad expressive eyes, doesn’t look directly at the camera. A horrid, shocking moment.
Sayid seemed beyond redemption. His humanity disappears. There was redemption in the end but it seemed far away in this episode.
Lana Parilla’s portrayal of Regina, has given what could have been an over the top villain, much needed depth and humanity. She shows the hurt child behind Regina, illustrating a favorite theme,that monsters aren’t born they are made.
But Regina isn’t a child anymore. She loves Henry but has controlled and isolated him. She is connecting with Emma and Snow, but needs to stop blaming them for her choices. Regina has power now, she is an an adult.
How to redeem Regina without ignoring what she has done is going to be a problem. These writers have taken characters to the brink and back before, how will they do it this time?
This is Peanut the turtle, shortly after being found in Missouri in 1993. She was taken to to a zoo in St. Louis where the six-pack ring was removed.
It seems that she was trapped in the plastic ring as a young turtle and was unable to free herself. Subsequently her shell moulded itself to the plastic ring and she grew in the strange shape you see here.
Unfortunately the damage is permanent, but peanut is expected to live a long life and today she serves as a mascot for the fight against beach littering.
Please, always remember to clean up after yourself at the beach.
Just a reminder to be careful with your garbage. These plastic soft drink rings should always be cut before throwing them away.

Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xxPlease signal boost this everybody!
