    This one was really interesting, with lots of development particularly in the current world! Great tstoryline, followed by an immense ending with an awesome cliffhanger!



    I've been hping for a back story on Red Riding Hood for a while now, and this one was just absolutely incredible! I couldn't believe how it played out!



    One of the best episodes ever! This one was phenomenal! Keep it up!
  • OK back on track :)

    Yay, OUaT is back on track with another great episode. This focused on Ruby and her past as Little Red Riding Hood. Fascinating take on the whole wolf thing... sometimes I get carried away with my posts and include spoilers... probably most of you have seen it all by now but just in case.... I won't get into the details, but I love this version of the tale. Meghan Ory was pretty cool as both characters, finally good to get a chance to see her shine as a focal point of the story.



    Even Mary margaret and David were not as bad as usual, I guess mostly since she was not simply breaking up with him again.moreless

    Really weird episode. Interesting spin on Little Red Riding Hood. The show at times, in my opinion, has had its complete flops and then those that are so-so or like this one that was pretty decent. I'm going to ruin it for some, but I wasn't expecting Red to be the wolf. I thought it was interesting on how Granny gave the genealogy and when Red first changed. This episode had my attention all the way to the end. Now I'm wondering how Snow White/Mary Margaret had her fingerprints on the inside of that jewelry box.moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Ruby: And you dress like Norman Bates when he dresses like Norman Bates' mother.


      Referencing the 1960 movie Psycho, which initially chronicles the exploits of a secretary embezzling money from her employer. She hides at an isolated motel owned by Norman Bates, who likes to stuff animals. He claims to have a mother who lives in the house at the top of the hill, but it is eventually revealed that she is a figment of Norman's delusional mind, and he dresses up like her to kill anyone who offends "Mother."
