Zelena, also known as the Wicked Witch of the West and cursed as Kelly West in the seventh By the end of season 6, Zelena and Regina's relationship improves as observed during Emma and Killian's wedding. Zelena was also an ally to. The giggly, elfin Rumplestiltskin that Regina knew from her youth as her teacher — the same slender, much older man who'd had an affair with.
In the episode "Our Decay," her birthday was revealed to be the fifteenth of April, something of which she was unaware until told by Hades in the present-day events of the episode. Relationships[ edit ] When Zelena travelled to the enchanted forest for the first time, she fell in love with Rumplestiltskin but she was not matched and when she returned to Oz and took control of the Emerald City she has a brief love affair with the Lord of the Underworld, Hades.
Zelena spent much of her life trying to create a Time Travel spell in order to take the place of her half sister. After Emma, Killian and Zelena went through the Time Travel portal, Zelena took the place of the deceased ex-wife of Robin Hood to ruin the life of her half sister. Zelena hates Dorothy because according to an ancient prophecy of Oz, Dorothy is the only one who could stop her.
After leaving Oz to realize her revenge against her half-sister, Zelena was banished back to Oz years later by Regina. As soon as she arrived in Oz, Zelena took the Emerald City again and put Dorothy under a Sleeping Curse in order to steal the silver slippers and return to Storybrooke.
After having a daughter and remembering her brief friendship with Regina as children, Zelena seeks a relationship with her half sister; the two of them decide to put the past behind them and get along fairly well now.

By the end of season 6, Zelena and Regina's relationship improves as observed during Emma and Killian's wedding. Early life[ edit ] Clinging to her dream to being more than a miller's daughter, Cora abandons her child in the woods, where a passing cyclone whisks the babe to Oz.
Whilst walking along the yellow brick road, a woodcutter and his wife witness a cyclone and a small baby fall through it. The woman wishes to raise the baby as their own but her husband is more skeptical after seeing the baby move a tree with just a wave of her hand.
After much persistence, the wife manages to persuade her husband to take in the baby and they decide to call her Zelena. During her time as a teenager, Zelena, who by now is discovering her powers was about to be punished by her father, but is saved by Cora, and is brought to the Enchanted Forest to help save Regina after she tampered with a wand that left her unconscious.
Zelena then saved Regina and the two become bonded but when Cora tells them that they're sisters, Cora erased their memories of having met each other because her presence could alter Regina's future as the Queen. Zelena is sent back to Oz with her memories of meeting her mother and Regina wiped.
Zelena is reduced to helping her father and shaving her father. During one shave, she accidentally cuts him and uses magic to produce a cloth. This angers the woodcutter who declares that she is wicked and that he only looked after her because Zelena's 'mother' wanted the girl.
He then reveals that Zelena is actually adopted to which she responds by walking out on him and going to ask the Wizard of Oz for help. Arriving at the Wizard's palace, she explains her situation to the great Wizard. She discovers that her birth mother was Cora and that Zelena was originally from the Enchanted Forest. At Zelena's request to visit this world, the Wizard supplies her with silver slippers that allows the wearer to visit any location so Zelena could find out more about her birth family.
After meeting Rumplestiltskin, Zelena learns how to use her magic but also discovers that her younger sister, Regina is being taught magic and that she will cast a curse for Rumplestiltskin.
Jealous, Zelena discovers that she isn't allowed to cast the curse so returns to Oz before Rumplestiltskin can get her silver slippers. Zelena goes to visit the Wizard so he could help her change the past. The Wizard refuses to help which only angers Zelena more. The young witch removes the Wizard's curtain and discovers that he is just a mortal named Walsh. She transforms him into an obedient flying monkey, before spying on Rumplestiltskin telling Regina that she is his greatest student.
This causes Zelena to be jealous of her younger sister and her skin turns green with envy.
Along with the Witch of the East and the Witch of the North, the trio believe Zelena is destined to join them because of a prophecy foretelling of a sorceress arriving by cyclone and becoming the Witch of the West. Zelena is still obsessed about changing her past, but with Glinda's encouragement, she decides her own future as a good witch is more important.
After receiving a pendant to harness her powers, Zelena views the western area of Oz, which she will be responsible for watching over. She and Glinda approach the wreckage from a cyclone to rescue a young girl named Dorothy. Fearing this child, who also arrived by cyclone, is the actual Witch of the West, Zelena researches the prophecy in the Book of Records, discovering that the sorceress will "unseat the greatest evil the realm has ever seen", which she believes is herself.
Even with Glinda's advisement that her fears may be not true, Zelena plots to get rid of Dorothy by attacking the girl with fire. However, Dorothy counters her assailant with water, causing Zelena to physically melt away. Despite being seemingly dead, Zelena reemerges at the Wizard's Emerald City palace. Glinda offers Dorothy the opportunity to join the sisterhood, but she declines since she only wants to go home.
Assuming the Wizard's voice, Zelena sends Dorothy back to Kansas with the silver slippers, and then reveals herself to a shocked Glinda. Zelena reaffirms her goal of changing her own past, and to keep Glinda from finding another sorceress to fulfill the prophecy, she banishes the Witch of the South to the Enchanted Forest. Zelena had one of her flying monkeys bring Scarecrow to her so that she can take his brain for her first attempt at a time-traveling spell.
When Dorothy returns, she and Toto free Scarecrow and escape from Zelena. With help from Hades, Zelena finds where they are hiding. Zelena then uses her magic to magically freeze Dorothy and then rips out Scarecrow's brain, leaving him without a brain. Before she can show Hades, Zelena noticed that Hades was not there. Before she can, Dorothy storms the palace to stop her. While Zelena prepares to finish her with a fireball, Dorothy's dog Toto wanders the room without her noticing.
Zelena tosses the fireball at Dorothy, who ducks, with the flame incinerating a guard instead. Toto then pulls at a wall string, making the curtains topple onto Zelena, giving Dorothy time to flee with her dog and the Scarecrow. Blaming the munchkins for Dorothy's return, she tries to intimidate them into giving up the girl's hiding spot, but the munchkins scatter after being frightened by Hades' flaming hair.
Hades thanks her for providing him with many souls in the Underworld and later offers to help her find the Scarecrow. Sympathetic to her plight, Hades explains that, he too, has to compete with an older sibling who has everything he wants. Leading her to an area where Dorothy landed in Oz years ago, he persuades Zelena into riding Dorothy's old bicycle with him, until they crash onto the ground, both giddy with laughter. After Zelena puts a tracking spell on the bike, she and Hades find Dorothy at a cottage.
When Hades flirts with her, Zelena leans in to kiss him, but the romantic moment is cut short once they spot the Scarecrow. Confronting Dorothy, Zelena works quickly to extract the Scarecrow's brain, but she finds Hades gone.
She returns to the palace, where Hades has prepared a celebratory banquet for her. Hades professes that he wants to be with Zelena, and his belief that a kiss of true love between them can restart his non-beating heart.
Zelena rejects him, suspecting he wants the time spell for himself, since only one of them can use it. Believing no one can love her, she reasons that if he does love her, he won't stand in the way of her revenge. With a tone of finality, she sends him away, warning him to never show his face again. He meets a young man named Will Scarlet, who helps him break into the Wicked Witch's palace. Zelena catches Robin, who narrowly escapes with some of the elixir.
However, rather than taking it with him, Robin chooses to give the elixir to Will Scarlet. Although Snow White is the one who enacted the second Dark Curse to take the people of the Enchanted Forest back into Storybrooke, Zelena is able to hijack it and be the one to retain her memory and become the town's manipulator. After being confronted by the heroes, Zelena has a showdown with Regina and loses to her half-sister's new light magic, leading to Zelena's arrest.
Gold stabs her and is led to believe that he killed her. At some point after turning into Marian, Zelena uses magic to learn everything she can about her. Zelena is locked in a cell beneath the hospital until her child is born.
Once Upon A Time: Is Rumplestiltskin Regina’s Father?
May be followed up with a companion piece from Regina's POV. Inspired in part by wolfenqueenyuri's take on same because it's not plagiarism when great minds think alike! Okay, so y'all know I'm a rabid Golden Queen shipper.
So first, just let me say given what Cora said in "The Miller's Daughter" about Rumple not getting her child because it wasn't his, and that the episode writer confirmed on Twitter that Regina is not Rumple's daughter, this is NOT an incest fic. Now does the fact that Rumple had a sexual relationship with Regina's mother mean that shipping Golden Queen is kind of creepy? Well, yeah, but … come on. The dark, twisted undercurrent is pretty much already built in. Heck, I think that's why I love them so much.
And now, after all my rambling, I give you …. To Love is To Bury Rumplestiltskin has committed many sick, twisted and despicable deeds in his long, dark life. Certainly, he's done far more disturbing things than bed both a mother and her daughter. So why does that particular act of perversion still bother him? But really, it wasn't as though he planned it that way.
He told Regina the truth when they first met — or rather, re-met. It was one of the few times he had been completely honest with her. He hadn't seen it. He hadn't seen her mother in her.
Regina was beautiful, true enough, but it was a beauty of a different sort. She had her father's coloring, she really did. Sometimes he almost pitied the man. And even in her most dire moments, facing death, Cora had never had the wide-eyed, drowning look that Regina did that night. Cora had been hungry from the moment he met her, hungry for revenge, hungry for power, hungry for him or so he thoughtand oh yes, it had aroused him, her bloodlust, her darkness … But Regina … Regina had been scared and sweet and helpless.
It really was hard to believe they were from the same family. So innocent she seemed, dressed all in white. Regina was absolutely and utterly And Cora never was, never had been. Cora had been corrupt when he met her, but with Regina, he had to draw the darkness out, teasingly, slowly, painstakingly, step by devious step … And yes, it aroused him. It aroused him even more than Cora's darkness had. Still, he had never planned on taking her into his bed. Teaching her, of course, he had certainly planned on — a more thorough and in-depth instruction than Cora ever had, one that spanned years instead of months.
10 Couples That Hurt Once Upon A Time (And 10 That Saved It)
Using her to cast the Dark Curse, he'd always intended — why else would he have needed her around for so long? But he hadn't planned the rest of it. Not gathering her up in his arms, pressing her body to his, pushing his tongue between her lips, dominating, laying claim … It was not about love. It was never about love. He'd learned that lesson earlier, with her mother, and he'd learned it well. Even as kind and gentle as Regina seemed — well, at least initially — they were treacherous, these Mills women, and you could not trust them, could not believe even the most fervent display of devotion.
Besides which, unlike Cora, Regina had already been in love when he met her. She had loved and lost, and even at the height of their affair, he knew he'd never been anything more to her than a salve to her open wound, a consolation prize. And it didn't bother him. After all, since he didn't love her, why should he care? This time they were no illusions. He would just take his pleasure with her and enjoy it, without any of those pesky feelings getting in the way.
Still, it was strange, strange. He couldn't help but … Cora had been talented and vigorous lover, to be sure. She was no maiden when she came to his bed not that he especially cared.
She knew what she was doing. But Regina … Well, apparently all she had been able to share with her beloved stable boy were stolen kisses. With her, he was a teacher both in and out of the bedroom, and oh, he'd taught her well, and a very eager student she had been … Honestly, after all this time, that's the only part that really bothers him. It shouldn't have been him to take her virginity. It should have been that Daniel, that stable boy.
But truth be told, the fact that Regina had been a maiden had excited him too. She had been corruptible in every way… He needs to stop thinking about this. Regina doesn't even hear his approach, so focused is she on her grief.
She's placed a rose on Cora's coffin, and starts at the sound of his voice. For an instant, she is the sad, scared young woman who first called his name, all those years ago. Then her eyes fill with venom. So if you've come to gloat —" "I came to pay my respects," he says, and puts his own rose on top of Regina's. Your mother carved out a piece of my heart and left a gaping hole, just like Milah did.
Just like … Regina gives him a look that seems to be equal parts incredulity and disgust.
Once Upon A Time Recap: Evil Queen and Rumplestiltskin Kiss in "Dark Waters" | TV Guide
You sent Hook to kill your mother once already, and then you and I nearly blew up the well when we thought Cora was going to come through. But he lets it go unsaid. Because however twisted and dysfunctional Regina and Cora's relationship had been, he knew that Regina had loved her.
