Cora had a baby before Regina (A gardener for prince Leopold’s family who she thought was a prince at the time was the father.) She abandoned it, and a tornado (possibly caused by the baby) took it to Oz. Said baby grew up to be Zelena, who had magic from the start, went to the Wizard who showed her Regina. Zelena went to Rum begging for lessons (this is about the time he was starting to teach Regina) She was jealous of Regina (green with envy.) Fast forward to now and she’s collected Charming’s courage, Regina’s heart and has Rum’s dagger to control him (and his brain.) All she needs is Snow’s baby and apparently this will allow her to break the laws of time (that sounds rather Doctor Who) where she’s going to go back, make sure Eva dies, Leopold marries Cora and they raise Zelena in a castle as is her due.
…is there a reason it has to be Snow’s baby?
