Storybrooke. Outside the sheriff's office, Widmore, as promised, stirs up the townsfolk against Red and Charming. They break into the station, only to find the cell empty. We cut to the library. While he tethers chains to something handy, Charming thanks Belle for letting Red hide there.
Red is afraid of what her new friend must think, but Belle is fully on Red's side, because she has less judgment than a gnat. No, I don't think gnats do have judgment, which is my point. Granny's standing by with her weapon at the ready. She reports the crowd is six blocks from them. Belle: "You have wolf hearing, too." Granny: "It's not all it's cracked up to be, especially when you run a hotel." Hee. And ew. Charming is going to need Granny's help to prove Red's innocence, so he tells Belle to call them if the mob comes at them.
Enchanted Past. When there's a noise in the den, the werewolves fear hunters and scurry to hide. It's just Snow, though, and she's looking for her friend. Quinn grabs Snow by the throat as Red pleads her friend's case. Snow is the only one who stood by her, even after she knew Red had killed. At Anita's order, Quinn finally releases the princess, who was afraid Red had been grabbed by Regina's men. What the heck is up with Anita's cape? Why is a human she-wolf wearing feathers? That's just silly. Wolves should wear fur -- the fur of other animals, sure, but it should be fur. Cats would wear feathers. I should write a fictional serial killer-esque trophy/outfits guidebook. Wolves and fur coats. Cats and feather capes. Humans and...well, skin. I'm sorry, but you know what monsters we are. I'm out of ideas. Maybe I'll just write a pamphlet instead. Or a handbill. That's it. A handbill.
Anyhow, Snow wants to go find that cabin they talked about, but Red doesn't want to leave. She's found her people. She's found her mother. Snow says, "But I thought..." Red cuts her off. "Granny lied." After looking at her friend, she adds "I'm sorry, Snow. I know you risked your life to come back here for me." Snow understands, though. She'd do anything to see her own mother again. She insists she'll manage okay on her own. The ladies hug and thank each other, but then Quinn is struck by an arrow. As Anita rushes to his side, Regina's guards enter the den. The werewolves put them down in short order by snapping their necks. Red is at Quinn's side when he dies. We cut to...
Storybrooke. Library. Red wants Belle to leave before the moon rises, but Belle has faith in the chains, which makes no sense to me. I have the same issue with werewolf restraints on The Vampire Diaries. A human wrist is one size. A wolf's would be slimmer, wouldn't it? Well, Meghan Ory is a lot more lithe than Michael Trevino and Taylor Kinney, so perhaps I have less of a beef here.
