'Once Upon a Time' season 5 spoilers: Ruby, Mulan to help Dorothy, seek help from Storybrooke protagonists in episode 18


The upcoming episode of “Once Upon a Time” season 5 will see Ruby and Mulan teaming up to help Dorothy.

Titled “Red Slippers,” episode 18 of the fantasy drama television show will see Ruby (Meghan Ory) and Mulan (Jamie Chung) going back to Oz to see Dorothy (Teri Reeves). However, the Wicked Witch of the West Zelena (Rebecca Mader) will be doing some mischievous acts that will make Dorothy disappear.

The rest of the synopsis posited on Melty reads, “However, Dorothy mysteriously disappears, and Ruby’s search for her new friend lands her in the Underworld. Reunited with the heroes, Ruby teams up with Emma, Regina and Snow to continue looking for Dorothy. Meanwhile, Snow and David struggle with not being able to be with their son, Neal, and devise a plan so that one of them can escape the Underworld.”

In the promotional trailer of the upcoming episode, it reveals that Dorothy disappeared because Zelena trapped her in a mirror. However, as Ruby and Mulan look for ways to defeat her, they also face other problems and attacks. To make the matters more complicated, the lord of the dead also appears to make some threats.

Hades (Greg Germann) suddenly appears to tell Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and the rest that “the gods don’t like it when mortals play with their toys,” making the protagonists fear him even more.

Meanwhile, around a month after its midseason finale, Carter Matt speculated some possibilities about the story of episode 18. One of it is a new storyline for Dorothy. This seems to be highly likely especially since she will be trapped in a mirror and may still take a few more episodes to get her out. Nonetheless, fans will still have to wait for how the story will unfold.

Episode 18 of “Once Upon a Time” season 5 will air on April 17 at 8 P.M. EST on ABC.
