She's your replacement, of course.
Before the Curse
Regina is ready to learn. ("The Doctor")
Rumplestiltskin is stood in the middle of the Enchanted Forest with a young woman, teaching her the ways of magic. The woman, Trish, is levitating a large rock with a spell emitting a light purple glow. Regina, wearing full black leather clothing approaches them both and, seemingly insulted, asks who the girl is. Rumpelstiltskin teasingly tells Regina that she is her replacement "of course". He tells the queen that he needed someone more dedicated. "Dedicated?" Regina asks before turning around to the young woman and thrusting her hand into her chest. She then rips out Trish's now enchanted heart, shocking the girl. Regina shows it to Rumplestiltskin and begins to crush it in her hand, showing him she's ready. The heart soon turns to dust and Trish collapses to the floor, dead. Rumplestiltskin squeaks with joy that Regina is now ready. "Now, where were we?" Regina asks as she brushes the dust off her gloves. Rumplestiltskin holds the book to his chest and stares at Regina, smiling. ("The Doctor")
