Regina never cast her curse; instead she was banished for years. When she finally reappears in the Enchanted Forrest, Princess Emma has grown up in peace. The war starts again and Emma leaves behind her parents, and her safe and comfortable life to join forces with the Evil Queen, whom she is in love with. It's messy, it's dysfunctional, but somehow, they might just be perfect for one another. Each understanding the dark and broken parts of their hearts better than anyone else can.

"Any time," Emma says, thumbs in the pockets of her coat. "It's the least I could do."
