CS fans only now realized that Regina and Emma are the core characters?
Go back and watch season 1 again. Snow, Charming and Rumple are also core characters. Get into your heads that Hook is not a core character, he’s a regular, a main character but not “core”. There’s a difference. This fandom needs to stop being so fucking jealous over “everything Regina”. That woman is there from the very beginning, she’s a fan favorite, she’s essential for this show. Deal with it.
