Goofs

August says he was surrounded by Lemurs in Nepal, they are only found wild in Madagascar. It is likely they meant macaques, but the mistake was repeated later by Ruby saying Emma was her Lemur. See more »

An improvement and a great back story to Red Riding Hood/Ruby
17 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Red-Handed is an improvement over the last two episodes and not only does it do a great job continuing where it left off with Kathryn's disappearance to Mary Margaret being in jail, but it gives a great back story to Ruby's character as Red Riding Hood. Yes, it did drag a bit longer, but there's nothing else to fault this episode with.

The writing's pretty good, the chemistry between Red Riding Hood and Snow White is spot on, the performances are still good, the scenery is still gorgeous and how atmospheric the Red Riding Hood setting was (also I liked how it's connected to the Enchanted Forest), the music score's still beautiful, the script is well-written, and the directing is pretty good.

Overall, an improvement and a great back story to Red Riding Hood/Ruby.
