      I overall liked this episode, but i kinda wish that there had been a confrontation between Granny and Red about her lying. But still satisfying :)

      Child of the Moon was a perfect and very entertaining episode of Once Upon a Time. I really enjoyed the story lines, the character development and the action. There was suspense and intrigue, plotting and revenge and many other emotions. The writers did a great job in crafting the episode while the actors really brought it together. Charming stayed true to his name and it seems he is following the classical hero's quest along with Emma and Snow. Ruby had tons of development and I enjoyed learning more about her back story. It was awesome to see more wolves. I liked how every thing played out and the ending was full of surprises. I look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless

      I like this episode but Red's acting is kinda bad... Beauty the same. Red's really pretty tho. Liked her kinda being all slutty when she didn't have her memory, that was more interesting than how she is now :))

      Oh and when Billy said he was a mouse, I really thought he was gonna say his name was 'Mickey'. That would make the Disney-circle complete.
    • Incredible episode as usual!

      This was another phenomenal episode, and I have been really hoping for a Ruby-centered episode for a long time, because the story about Ruby was one of the best episodes from Season 1, and I have been craving a continuation of that!



      There were many interesting moments - both in the past and present - King George makes an appearance too, which is something I've been anticipating since we spotted him a few episodes ago at the end. I really really hate his character, especially after the events of today.



      Once again - Regina, Snow, Emma and Gold all barely got one scene - I don't really mind, just as long as things like that don't happen in back to back episodes, so I hope the next episode is centered around one or more of the main cast.



      Nonetheless, this was a perfect episode! And I can't wait for the next one, especially since it is a fortnight away! :(moreless

      • Leroy: Just because it's called Happy Hour, Happy, doesn't mean you have to be there.

      • Anita: It'll be like nothing you've ever felt before. The pine needles under foot. The air rushing over your fur. Your brothers and sisters at your side. Your mind won't want to believe it. It will tell you a wolf is invading your body, trying to take over. and f you believe that for even a moment, you'll black out and lose control. Like you have every other night you've turned. But if you give in to the wolf, you'll realize the truth. You are the wolf.

      • Granny: The mob's six blocks from here.
        Belle: You--you have wolf hearing, too?
        Granny: It's not all it's cracked up to be. Especially when you run a hotel.

      • Spencer: I wasn't trying to hide.
        David: You killed an innocent man.
        Spencer: He was a mouse.
        Ruby: He was better than you'll ever be.
