I originally posted this about 5 weeks ago on tumblr. Half of the post is no longer relevant as we know Sheriff Graham’s true identity… but Dr Whale is still something of a mystery.
After watching 1.03 I’m thinking Dr Whale is the Big Bad Wolf. Reasons?
- His interest in Ruby, while he was on his date with Mary Margaret.
- His surname.
Ruby = Red Riding Hood. Obviously.
His surname? It’s interesting that one of the theories of evolution has whales evolving from a terrestrial wolf-like creature. I swear to God – I googled ‘whale wolf’ (yes, I am that sad) and you’ll be surprised what pops up. Of course, I’m not sure how current those particular scientific theories are but… *shrugs*
