For those of you who think Regina wasn’t as ‘aggressive’ as Emma was… let me show you these 3 pictures…
I will also quote Emma from season 1 “You’ve sat behind a desk for ten years…”
It is pretty clear Regina isn’t as fit as Emma being as she had a desk job… so naturally in the first picture, Emma and Charming are out-running Regina and Snow.
Emma makes it in time to jump in, but Charming grabs her….
then Regina catches up and nearly falls in … but she catches herself because what she sees is that she is too late… that the portal closed in the third picture right as Regina arrives.
So make no mistake about it … Regina was on the same wave length here with Emma… jump in that damn portal!
Emma looks more aggressive as she is physically being held… I am sure if someone grabbed Regina she would have done the same…The point is she couldn’t run as fast as Emma and she was entirely too late…Why jump in water for nothing?
