Once Upon a Time” there was a big, bad wolf…

This week the enchanting ABC drama finally takes on the back story of Ruby aka Little Red Riding Hood (Meghan Ory). In fairytale land, Red is a girl yearning for her true love whose Granny won’t let her out of the house because a killer wolf as big as a pony is terrorizing their village.

Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), who’s still on the run from the Evil Queen, heads into town and soon the two fair ladies are BFFs. Before long, Red teams up with Snow (who’s terrible at picking code names, as you’ll see above) with a plan to kill the wolf themselves.

In a preview of this Sunday’s episode called “Red-Handed,” the hooded hotties discover the horror left behind by the bloodthirsty creature, making them realize just who should be afraid of the big, bad wolf: Them!

Watch the unsettling scene above.

Meanwhile, back in Storybrooke, Red’s alter-ego Ruby quits her job as a waitress at Granny’s Diner. Having sympathy for a fellow lost soul, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) hires Ruby to be her sheriff’s assistant until she figures out her true calling in life. Sheriff Swan also continues questioning David over Kathryn’s mysterious disappearance, which has got to bum out Mary Margaret.
