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!

Yeah, he is Prince Charming, and the transgressions he made were while he didn’t remember all of his morals and standards or held his full sense of will and resolve. I can imagine Ruby crushing on him despite him being with her best friend because she’s lonely and easily drawn in by affection. However, her loyalty to Snow is true and deep as shown in this episode, and her friendship with the prince has been long-standing, even before Season 2. David will not take advantage of Red’s vulnerability and Red will not betray her essential sister.

*shakes his fist at the monitor* Or ELSE!!! Lol

I agree with you completely, there is undeniable chemistry between these two and i noticed it from the first epi of season 2! But i think their just great actors who look amazing together, dont think once upon a time will go in the route of stealing husbands lol.

A little surprised by the way they looked at each other last night and I hope the writters won’t add more drama and chaos to this story. More of Emma and her romance with Hook. .

Yes! Big fan of Emma & Hook.

But Charming & Ruby definitely had a moment, right? I’m not crazy!

You’re not crazy Andy, I saw their ‘moment’ (s). In fact the entire show I kept thinking to myself ‘please don’t kiss, please don’t kiss’. – I really hope they don’t go there. I get that sometimes things happen, but he’s supposed to be Prince Charming, not the Once Upon A Time version of Rupert Sanders.
