This is another topic that seems to come up often on this spot. A good many people thing it was dumb of Regina to trust her mom and stupid of her to mourn her mom's passing. I just wanted to share my take on this issue. I'm not directing it at anyone person either, so I hope it doesn't come off like that to anyone. If it does, that's probably because some of my points are taken from maoni I previously typed (because I'm a lazyarse.) :P
To start off I'd like to point out that was all alone until her mother came to Storybrook, she literally had no one, no one at all. And then finally someone comes and decides to care for her, of course she's going to jump on the offer. Sure her mother's confession might have gotten Emma and Henry back on her side but that's a 50/50 chance, where as her mother's upendo and help was already there, she knew her mom was on her side. If wewe were all alone would wewe take a friendship offer wewe knew was there au blow that change kwa going for something that was 50/50? It's only natural for someone who has been ostracized from society, for someone who has been give no upendo at all, to quickly accept an opportunity to be loved. And the offer is especially good if it comes from someone like a parent. A good number of people (weather they know it au not) would do almost anything to gain the approval and upendo of their mother au father. And Gina finally got that, after such a long time.
On juu of that it's completely natural for a daughter to upendo her own mother unconditionally and do anything to receive the same upendo in return. It's really hard to hate your own parent even if they are horrible to you. There were times when I tried to hate my father for something he did to me; I couldn't and I don't know why. Probably because he is family, because he raised me and loved me. And I can imagine Regina feels the same. Despite it all Cora had wanted what was best for Regina (in her own twisted way). After everything that happened with Henry, Regina understood this. A common argument is that Cora didn't upendo Regina; I can't agree there. I think Cora loved her daughter very much, she just didn't know how to do it. In her own twisted way she thought she was doing what was best for her daughter in giving her a shot at power and riches, at something she never had. She just went about it in the very wrong way. She just didn't want Gina to end up on the streets.That being alisema I think Regina was giving her mom a sekunde chance (something Snow was unwilling to do in the case of Regina) and that's not a stupid move. I don't think it's stupid at all to upendo your mom au to give her another chance. I personally believe everyone deserves a sekunde try.
As for mourning her mom; honestly if your mom died, would wewe celebrate? Yeah Cora killed Gina's lover but she's still her mom, she's still the one that fed and clothed Regina, and for that reason Regina wasn't dancing on Cora's grave--not to mention people probably would call Gina sick and twisted if she did do so. Guess it's a lose lose, if she takes joy in her mom's death she's sick, if she cries about it she's stupid. It makes no sense to me. If would find it zaidi disturbing if Regina ran up to Snow and hugged her with a quick "OMG thank wewe so much for killing my mom." A parent is a parent, and as I alisema above usually the for a parent tends to be unconditional. Something in the brain usually keeps people from hating the one that raised them, that protected them.
Not to mention Cora could finally upendo Regina right. She's not just crying over the person she once knew, but the person she caught a glimpse of; how her mom could have been had she not taken her moyo out. Regina saw all the wasted potential--what very well could have been, but was stopped short kwa death. Cora's last words were "You would have been enough." The statement alone was moyo wrenching. In that brief few sekunde Regina got a glimpse at real mother-daughter love, at what could have been a different kind of happy ending. In that brief few sekunde Regina had someone--she had a person who could upendo her unconditionally. But it was gone before she could even say 'I upendo you' back. Cora was gone and leaving her daughter all alone again.
Which leads into the inayofuata point; Regina is alone again, of course this is painful to her. I would cry to if I finally found someone to care for me and then that person died in my arms. It was only a kick to Gina while she was already on the ground that the person to die was not just someone to keep her company, but also her mom. I don't feel like it's stupid at all for Regina to be upset that she's all alone again.
And to make it worse Gina had already Lost Dan, her father, (of course this one could have been prevented) and Henry--or at least his upendo and trust. That's 3 people she loved that she Lost prior to the death of her mom. Witnessing the death of upendo is traumatic enough one time alone, but witnessing 3 people wewe upendo die? Of course losing the last person Regina had hit home.
And to put icing on the cake; the fact that she had been the killer made it all the worse. Don't wewe think it's like a ngumi, punch in the face to Gina that she had been tricked into killing her own mother. Snow didn't even have the guts to do it herself so she tricked a daughter into killing her mother. Regina inevitably felt guilty for her mom's passing. And therefore the mourning was probably even zaidi justified. On juu of that she has to live with the fact that she killed both
of her parents. One of course was her own fault (and yeah I can admit that that wasn't smart). But in the case of her mother, Regina had never
meant to take the woman's life, in fact she was ready to officially give her another shot.
That's just about all I have to say. Thanks for kusoma guys.
