Ah ha! The puzzle of who Once Upon a Time‘s Sheriff Graham is in the fairy tale world is about to be revealed! The answers – and some surprises – are contained in the episode description and photos ABC released for episode
1.05 1.07, “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”.
Updated: It looks like ABC put the photos/episode description up out of order. The correct date for this episode is December 11th.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead
In my Once Upon a Time recaps, I’ve been speculating that the Sheriff is either the Huntsman or the Woodcutter, leaning toward the Huntsman. Do you mind if I gloat a little? The
November 27th December 11th episode focuses on Graham, and the description confirms his identity:
“The Heart is a Lonely Hunter” – One of the town’s residents begins to remember their fairytale past, and Storybrooke mourns the loss of one of their own. Meanwhile, in the fairytale world that was, the Evil Queen attempts to find a heartless assassin to murder Snow White.
Huntsman! I knew it!
That first sentence is chalk full of interesting information: who is remembering their fairy tale past? Is it Graham? That’s my guess given the photos of him and Henry with the book. And who dies in 1.04 and is being mourned in 1.05? More questions and surprises arise with the photos released for this episode. First of all, it looks like Ruby (aka Red Riding Hood) has a crush on the Sheriff. But those longing looks we thought we were imagining Graham was sending Emma’s way don’t look so imaginary anymore. Take a look.
