Tonight on ABC a whole new episode of ONCE UPON A TIME airs called “Child of the Moon.” On tonight’s show Ruby fears about what happens when she turns into a wolf in Storybrooke is confirmed, and Red Riding Hoods finds a kindred spirit in Anita, A leader of humans who turn into wolves. Did you see last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it here for you!
On last week’s show with the hopes of finding a magical compass that could help her and Mary Margaret get back to Storybrooke, Emma took a journey with a not-too-trustworthy Captain Hook up a treacherous beanstalk in an attempt to steal the item from a murderous giant (Jorge Garcia, “Lost”). Meanwhile, Emma’s past was revealed to be anything but magical when she mets up with a fellow thief who wanted to make an honest woman out of her.
On tonight’s shop Ruby’s fear about turning into a wolf during the first curse-free Storybrooke full moon is confirmed when one of the town’s residents is viciously murdered, and Ruby is the prime suspect; Decker – aka King George – threatens to expose David as a shepherd, not a prince, and not fit to run the town as sheriff; and Leroy stumbles upon some treasure in the Storybrooke mine that could help bring Mary Margaret and Emma back into our world. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, Red Riding Hood finds a kindred spirit in Anita (Annabeth Gish), a charismatic and mysterious leader of a pack of humans who, like Red, turn out to be wolves.
