Major on-screen chemistry between Charming & Ruby has many fans wondering: Will they live extramaritally ever after?

Once Upon A Time viewers were given a rare look at Charming (Josh Dallas) and Ruby’s (Meghan Ory) friendship on the show’s Nov. 11 episode, as he saved her from an angry mob of wolf hunters, but I have to ask: Could there be something more than friendship between them? This was the first time we’ve really seen Josh and Meghan work together, and while I’m not sure if their chemistry was scripted, it was absolutely undeniable.

If there’s one thing I learned from Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Graham’s tragically short-lived romance, it’s that Storybrooke residents who work together usually end up playing together, too. And I know Ruby and Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) are attached at the hip, but would this really be the first time you’ve heard of a girl stealing her best friend’s boyfriend? Once loves putting this kind of twisted spin on classic fairy tales!

From an entertainment perspective, Charming and Snow could use a little more non-geographical drama in their relationship. Can you imagine her finally returning from the Enchanted Forest, only to discover that her “prince” has fallen for her best friend? That’s good television!

Not to mention, Ruby pretty much exists to ruin relationships. Quinn? Dead. Billy? Dead. Peter? Dead. This she-wolf needs a collar just so she can hang a “Warning: Damaged Goods” sign around her neck.

And it’s not like Charming and Snow haven’t both cheated before! He married Kathryn and she slept with Dr. Whale, and even though they were “cursed” at the time, the affairs still happened.

Do you think there’s something more than friendship between Charming and Ruby, or are Josh and Meghan just really magnetic actors? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!
