Over in FairyLand, Regina is behind bars and sentenced to be executed. Her dad comes for a visit and begs her to repent and say she’s sorry; he knows that Charming and Snow will let her live if she but gives them a reason to. He begs her to do it.
In StoryBrooke, Emma and Charming have hauled Regina in for questioning while Snow watches from behind the class. Charming is ready to throw the book at her, but Emma is not convinced of Regina’s guilt. For one, she looked for really shocked when she found out Archie was dead, and for another, Regina points out that if she HAD killed him she certainly wouldn’t left a trail leading right to herself.
Charming just knows that Regina is guilty. He says she is incapable of change no matter how many times they give the chance to. Why should this time be any different?
And so we jump back to FairyLand, to the day of Regina’s execution and it seems that most of the kingdom (including Rumpy, heavily cloaked) have shown up to watch the Queen go down in flames. It’s all very Joan of Arc-esque what with her in a potato sack of a dress, face scrubbed clean, and hair neatly in a ponytail.
Jiminy offers her a chance to clear her conscience and asks if she has any last words. Yep, she does. She tells everyone that she knows she’s being judged for her past, a past where she’s brought pain, misery, and even death. When she looks back at everything she’s done she feels regret.
Somehow I don’t think that’s the regret speech that her daddy was talking about. Obviously that little speech is going to do nothing to save her. Except it does. Because Snow shows mercy to her stepmother, stopping her execution at the last minute.
The Queen is removed to go back to her cell sporting a shit eating grin on her face.
In StoryBrooke Snow wonders what the hell they do with Regina now. Charming votes to lock her up while Emma votes to let her go. Emma insists Regina is innocent until proven guilty. They are going to let her go and then find the truth she tells her parents.
