Once Upon a Time Photos: Ruby and Mulan Join Merida for a Quest

ABC takes a quite different stab at Charlie’s Angels this Sunday when Once Upon a Time brings back both Ruby and Mulan (played by Meghan Ory and Jamie Chung) to join Merida on a dangerous quest — as seen in a new batch of photos.

In “The Bear King” — the second of this Sunday’s two fresh episodes (airing at 8/7c) — Zelena and Arthur journey to DunBroch to retrieve a relic that will provide the advantage they need to vanquish Emma and the Storybrooke heroes. Their path will cross with that of Merida, who is on a journey to pay a debt that her father, King Fergus, owed to the Witch when he died. But the great Scot will need a helping hand, or four, in her mission.

“Merida and Mulan have had quite a close friendship for some time, so you find out how Mulan was introduced into Merida’s life,” Amy Manson previously told TVLine. “And then Ruby ends up meeting Mulan, and they offer to help Merida on her mission. That’s how the three of them become ‘Charlie’s Angels’!”

Check out the “MerRubyLan” photos below, plus new episodics from Sunday’s first episode, “Birth,” featuring Zelena in Wicked Witch mode and some Dark Emma/Hook action.

    I gave up on OUaT a few seasons ago but I’m going to watch this episode! I’m excited!

  2. I haven’t been watching, but it now occurred to me to ask, is this Camelot the version from Sword in The Stone?

  3. I’ll be disappointed if it turns out Merida was brought into this show to meet a LGBT affirmative action quota by putting her together with Mulan. If they do that they will have completely missed the point of the brave movie. Just because Merida didn’t want preselected male suitors doesn’t automatically make her a lesbian. A woman can want to rule her kingdom as a Single independent ruler. The “if she doesn’t want a husband so she must want a wife” stereotype is just bad as not having LGBT characters.

    Perhaps this signals a break from the Emma and Hook show and a return to Once Upon A Time .

  5. What may be “baffling character assassination” to some, is a welcome change of character to some. Just because we love a previous take on the character(book, Disney version etc.) does NOT mean the powers that be are gonna stick to that particular character that we initially fell in love with as kids. This is a BRAND NEW TAKE on the character and characters. And this also preludes to Merida, if the PTB decided to turn her lesbian, that’s their right, it’s their show. if you don’t like it, stop watching. I ditched shows like Covert Affairs & Vampire Diaries because they turned into something I didn’t like and I didn’t go into a rant on here nor on Social Media for all to see. I owe nothing to no one and neither do any of you. You don’t have to like what;s happening on OUAT, but our opinion does NOT speak for all. Let us enjoy the show for what it is, please and Thank You!!

      Yeah, I don’t get whats with all the rage over Arthur being evil. Once Upon a Time has always been about twisting characters out of their classic roles and shaping them into something unexpected, and this show is often at it’s worst when it does otherwise.

        I totally agree with you Bradley….. this is the show where Red Riding Hood is also the Big Bad Wolf!
        So not every character is going to be what they were in the Disney movies.

      Be careful what you wish for .

      Older shows fight viewer fatigue and this show has plenty of signs of it. And that’s the first step towards cancellations .
