I find it strange that anyone would argue with this. No one is claiming he and Regina are like twins, just that the writers seem to have set there story up in a similar fashion. The use of Robin Hood as Regina’s love interest was always curious too because lets face it he’s not the fairy tale character you’d instantly think of as a love interest for her. He is however a character/legend that you can link to Emma’s character. In his case he was knight turned outlaw whereas Emma is outlaw turned knight but there stories both involve saving and protecting the vulnerable from ‘bad guys’. It’s interesting that when they introduced him in season 2 as part of the Rumbelle story line (before they had decided to male him Regina’s future love interest) he was a brunette. Then once they had decided to use him as a story line for Regina they chose a blond actor. Did I mention he’s also a single parent with a son? The fact that both ‘mid show’ love interests for Emma and Regina parallel the other woman so closely bodes very well for Swan Queen. Let’s be honest is CS and OQ were end game the writers would still be dragging the pre relationship stage out and would have not shown their cards yet.
