This moment is very important. It’s the moment many seem to conveniently forget. The moment Regina, now with her son back in her life and renewed hope for her happy ending with him, met and interacted with Robin Hood for the first time since the new curse. 

This was instant attraction. This was chemistry. This was a connection. 

Despite popular belief, this moment of attraction happened before Regina ever saw the tattoo. Fact. While we cannot know what would have happened had she not seen it, we cannot ever forget that this moment did happen and it happened before Regina had a clue of her destiny.
