Red demands the Zelena tell her what she did to Dorothy. Red lies unconscious after the Charming Family finds her. Ruby Slippers is the femslash ship between Red and Dorothy Gale from the Once Upon A Time fandom. Henry worries that she might be dead but Hook assures that she's still breathing, leading Snow to wonder how long Regina thinks the former waitress will stay knocked out. Many also thought that it was handled the same way any couple had been on the show, which is more an insult towards the writing of the show than the couple themselves. Dorothy places her hand on Red’s face and the two kiss. She lived on the run after that, and although she found people that cared for her, she still felt like something was missing.

True Love The only thing left of her is a scrap of cloth. Dorothy explains that Zelena came after them, before putting Red’s cloak back on her. Snow keeps encouraging her to try but Red is scared. After the three witness Zelena's return to Oz, they look for a way to defeat her once and for all.

Zelena appears and the three pull their weapons on her.

Dorothy says that’s the problem and starts heading towards the poppy field.

The two begin to run, but Red knows of a faster way. Even though they’ve just met, she’s never felt this way for anyone before. Despite looking everywhere with Mulan they couldn’t find her. There were also those who thought that Red would end up with Mulan, since she had previously been confirmed to be a lesbian/bisexual. Although she thinks it should be fair and gives Dorothy the nickname Kansas. Dorothy asks if that’s why Red came to Oz, but Red actually came to look for her pack since she thought that’s what was missing.

Mulan can tell that something is off and asks Red what’s wrong. As they walk towards the poppies Red asks about Toto.

Mulan asks what’s so wrong about that. Dorothy apologizes for calling her Wolfie since she didn’t know about the village.

She becomes distraught, blaming herself for Dorothy going missing, but Snow tells her that it’s not her fault and they’ll help her find out what happened. "Is she okay?!"

Status of Relationship They get to the poppy field, and Dorothy warns Red to be careful.

Before she can do so Em screams and turns to water. Dorothy Gale

Dorothy takes a step towards Red and asks her what she is looking for.

Red knows that the only person in her family that was good to her was her Aunt Em, but she’s dead.

She hesitates for a moment before placing a kiss upon Dorothy’s lips. In the Land of Oz, Mulan and Ruby meet up with Dorothy while dealing with Zelena after she returns from Storybrooke, but a series of events bring Ruby to the Underworld. Directed by Eriq La Salle.

Snow doesn’t believe that, and thinks that Red should.

The three get to where a tornado touched down and begin to search for Toto. The three begin to make a sleeping powder to knock out Zelena, and the only ingredient they need is poppys. Snow says that love is worth the risk and Red decides to give it a try. In fact she kinda likes the nickname.

Snow asks frantically as her best friend Ruby is laid down on her bed back at the Underworld version of the apartment, and David asks further why she's down there at all.

Regina then comes out and gives her the silver slippers she was able to get from Zelena. Ruby Slippers

Dorothy is a little impressed and starts to follow them. Fans overall liked the couple, and were happy to see LGBT representation in Once.

Dorothy chases after him, but he begins to get lost.

Fans however were upset that the couple would not appear ever again, as Dorothy only started to appear in that season (with the exception of her child appearance in season 3), and Red had become a minor character.

Red paces back and forth, upset about Dorothy. Ruby Slippers is the femslash ship between Red and Dorothy Gale from the Once Upon A Time fandom. Snow asks if there was anyone that could help Dorothy.

Dorothy is shocked but gets on Red’s back, to get away from the flying monkeys.

She doesn’t want Red to accidentally get hit by the seeds and picks on of them. There is a moment of uncomfortable silence before the two leave. She reveals that she was here after being banished and only wants to get back to her baby.

Red’s not sure.

Most fans are mixed on the couple.

In the Underworld, Henry writes what happened in his storybook.

Red thinks they won’t do any good since there’s no one to give Dorothy true love’s kiss. Dorothy knows where to get them and Red decides to go with her.

She asks if Dorothy trusts her and Dorothy hesitates for a moment before saying yes.

Red says that Snow is right. Zelena actually put her under a sleeping curse, which Red demands that Zelena wake her up from, but she can only be awoken by true love’s kiss. She’s not sure if that’s actually what she was looking for.
