Regina is Snow’s stepmother which makes her both Henry’s adopted mother and his step great grandmother? Would that make her Rumple’s…step…sister in law?
If Regina’s Henry’s step-GREAT-grandmother that would make her Rumple’s step-MOTHER-in-law, no?
Which means Zelena would be Rumple’s half-step-aunt-in-law? This show hurts my head.
An In law is only something by marriage. Neither Regina nor her relatives are married to anyone in Rumpel’s family. Rumpel and none of his relatives are married to anyone in Snow’s family.
Rumpel is Regina’s adopted son’s biological grandfather. And he is Regina’s step great grandson’s biological grandfather.
Okay, so Regina would be Rumple’s grandson’s adopted mother, which would make Zelena Rumple’s grandson’s adopted half-aunt. Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but I suppose this is the only technically accurate explanation.
Unless anyone can go through Snow’s lineage and get something different?
Regina is Snow’s stepmother which would make Zelena Snow’s half-step aunt and Charming’s half-step aunt-in-law. So she’s Emma’s half-step great aunt and Henry’s half-step great great aunt.
On the Stiltskin side of the family, Neal is Henry’s biological father but he and Emma never married so I guess the in-law relation is out. If he and Emma were married Zelena would be Neal’s half-step great aunt-in-law but as it is I guess that makes her his half-step great aunt through relationship with Emma? oh goodness this is confusing
would that make Zelena Rumple’s half step aunt based on Emma’s relationship with Neal?? I’ve lost track at this point
Let me recap, then. Through Henry alone:
- Regina is Rumple’s grandson’s adopted mother
- Zelena is Rumple’s grandson’s adopted half-aunt
Through Regina’s relationship as Snow’s step-mother:
- Regina is Rumple’s grandson’s step-great-grandmother
- Zelena is Rumple’s grandson’s half-step-great-great-aunt
Is there any way to link these ladies directly to Rumple, though?
