ouat s4 theory: elizabeth mitchell will play the real snow queen, and milah’s sister
yo, this ties in beautifully with my star wars captain swan theory
i’m going off of that article that came out from eweekly with adam & eddie.
hear me out:
every seasonal villain on the show has had something in common: henry. they’re all related to him somehow. milah is his paternal grandmother, and we know almost nothing about her origin story.
we know that e.mitch’s character has ties to both arendelle and the enchanted forest. it’s not a stretch to imagine she and milah are sisters and that maybe one of the sisters mirrored gold’s transformation to darkness, hers being awesome ice bitch instead of dark bitch.
frozen's big theme is sisterly love; we saw the opposite of that with regina/zelena.
so… the sisterly love between anna/elsa parallel gives way to the sisterly love between the snow queen avenging the death of her sister, milah. she comes to storybrooke to exact revenge on the arbiter of her death- milah’s husband, the dark one. we do not give up on those we love, even unto death.
the parallel is beautiful- someone else coming to storybrooke to seek vengeance against rumpelstiltskin just as hook has allowed his own similar feelings to abate in favor of finding real true love.
speaking of which, that’s another great parallel- as a bonus, the snow queen gets to play with the man who led her sister astray- by freezing and mounting him in her ice palace, thus enacting my star wars theory in which emma-leia the bounty hunter will have to save her pirate-smuggler.
this show loves its parallels, and i have myself convinced this is a sound theory.
thanks to divinethedivine for the above pic and for talking it out with me! feel free to punch holes in my theory, i’m just really excited about it, even if it’s not true.
