At the Storybrooke Sheriff's station, Ruby and Emma stare at the open box.
Brad Pitt: WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
Dean Winchester: WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
Everyone in my house: WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
Poor Ruby finally manages to asks, "Is that what I think it is." Ruby turns from the scene. Emma asks if she's okay and tells her it will be all right. They can figure out what happened now. Emma says she's impressed by Ruby. Ruby says she shouldn't be since she's scared out of her mind. Emma says, "But you did it, anyway."
Granny and Snow trek through the Enchanted Forest and while they walk Granny exposits.
Granny: I'll take this. It's hard to get good roles at my age. Of course I knew Red was a werewolf. Her mother was one too, but a hunting party killed her. Her lycanthropy started when she was 13. I paid a wizard for that red cloak, that's supposed to keep her from turning but she doesn't always wear it.
Snow: Why didn't you tell her?
Audience: Yeah, really, Gran.
Granny: The writers wouldn't let me, and had me concoct some nonsensical answer about not wanting her to have that burden. And the story I told to the townsfolk? That werewolf was Red's grandfather. He marked me that night, then came back, found and turned me.
Recapper: How dark is this? I think he raped her.
Snow: How are you tracking Red?
Granny: Smell. It's my last lupine sense. Everything else faded away.
Recapper: Undoubtedly, when you went through menopause.
Recapper: Right there with ya, sister. That said, I do like how dark this episode is. My friend Rachel suggests Red's lycanthropy can lead to an empowerment story once Red learns how to live with it. It sounds like she's have some heightened senses and that tracking ability is going to be handy.
Buffy: Oh, sure, as long as she wears the Magical Cloak of Midol. She's not on the rag. The rag's on her! I'm going to go slay something, and then watch reruns of me.
Recapper: So, um. That happened. Where were we? Granny stops buying her own b.s. and admits she's been a fool to keep this secret from Red.
