Once Upon a Time...at the Full Moon

Once Upon a Time Season 2 Episode 7: "Child of the Moon"

This episode returned to the fairy-back format to give the audience more information on Ruby's backstory, namely how she learned to control her monthly transformation through a chance encounter with a werewolf clan.  In the present, it is the first full moon since the curse was broken last season, so Ruby is anxious that she will no longer be able to control herself while in wolf form.  After a local is discovered dead the next morning, Ruby fears the worst and Spencer/King George rallies the townspeople against her, leaving David/Charming to solve the mystery behind the crime.

Very little of Snow and Emma was seen in this episode, save for a brief segment at the very end of the episode.  This was very much Ruby's episode to shine.  As such, there weren't a lot of hints about the loose threads in the series, save for some exposition about the shared "dream" between Aurora and Henry.  One line given by Rumpel after providing a protective amulet to Henry leads me to think my suspicions are correct, but time will tell.

All in all, a nice episode for a character whom we don't usually see enough of.  I'm looking forward to catching up with the other episodes this weekend.
