An amazing episode with unexpected twists and a killer cliffhanger. These are just our first thoughts about this Once Upon a Time episode, and we’ll share more in our upcoming full episode.
Some of our interesting discussion points:
- AMAZING episode, written by Jane Espenson. Follow @JaneEspenson
- Fantastic acting by Meghan Ory (Red) and Beverley Elliott (Granny). Follow @meghanrory Follow @TheReelBeverley
- We felt led on for the big bad wolf’s identity by the early appearances of both August and Dr. Whale, especially from their interactions with Ruby.
- We never expected Red to be the big bad wolf, but now many things make sense.
- Have we ever seen Granny’s bare right arm before?
- Snow White called herself “Frosty,” “Margaret,” and “Mary.”
- We thought the “Peter and the Wolf” reference was great.
- Whose heart is in the box? We’re thinking maybe David’s.
- Being a wolf is generational, but Ruby seems to have carried at least her sense of hearing into Storybrooke.
- Granny name (first or last?) is Lucas, because she’s called “widow Lucas.”
- Was more “my Gods” another thing from Jane Espenson’s Battlestar Galactica and Caprica writing?
- We think this episode episodes before Prince James was killed and replaced with Shepherd James.
