Will Zelena & Robin's Baby Be Evil On 'Once Upon A Time'? 5 Disney Characters The Child Could Become
Just when you think things couldn't possibly get any worse, your Wicked Witch of a sister informs you that she's having a baby with the love of your life. At least that's the case for poor Regina, who was just informed during last week's episode "Lily," that Zelena is pregnant with Robin Hood's baby on Once Upon a Time . Not exactly the outcome we were hoping to get out of this little rescue mission. But like it or not, this pregnancy twist is actually happening, which could very well signify the end of Regina and Robin Hood for good. But what I'm even more curious about is whether or not Zelena and Robin's baby will grow up to become evil like its mother or heroic like its father?
This series has always made a point of posing the question: is evil born or made? And given how strong this theme has become throughout the second half of this season — especially now with the threat of Emma the Savior turning dark — there's a fairly good chance that this child will possess both good and evil tendencies. As of now, though, it's far too early to know which way the scales will tilt depending upon what outside forces interfere. For all we know, Lily herself could've become a hero instead of a villain if Charming and Snow hadn't intervened. But given how wicked Zelena is and how kind Robin is, maybe the two will simply cancel each other out? Who knows at this point.
And while I'll admit that I'm not super thrilled with this storyline in general, I did manage to have some fun predicting which iconic Disney character this child could grow up to be. Because anything is possible when magic is involved, dearies.
Winifred Sanderson (Hocus Pocus)
I mean, who wouldn't love to see this Disney creation get brought to life on OUAT? Hocus Pocus told us very little about who the Sanderson Sisters were and where they came from. Perhaps they once lived in a small town called Storybrooke? And you have to admit that Winnie's red hair and witchy powers certainly has a Zelena-type feel to it. Not to mention the fact that Winnie's wardrobe color of choice is green. JUST SAYING.
Red hair: check. Blue eyes: check, check. Oh, and then there's the fact that she uses a bow and arrow as her weapon of choice. Sound familiar? It's also worth mentioning that well before the Frozen story arc was announced, show creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis both admitted to E! Online how much they would love to incorporate fairytale princesses into the plot — including Brave's Merida.
"We would love to [incorporate] Merida," Kitsis revealed, with Horowitz echoing similar sentiments, while adding: "Whether we get to them or not, characters like Anna, Elsa and Merida feel like they could be slotted in." So now that they've introduced both Anna and Elsa, that still leaves Merida up for grabs. And what better way to introduce her character than with a surprise magical pregnancy?!
Flynn Rider (Tangled)
Known for his thievery and devilishly good looks, would it be all that surprising if Flynn's father turned out to be Robin Hood? I mean, where do you think he learned it all from?
He started out as a thief with good intentions, just like Robin, and has a monkey sidekick, just like Zelena. If either of them are revealed to have connections to the Genie, that's basically proof that they're the future parents of Aladdin.
Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
Because, hey, you never know, right?
