The Wolf Among Us
Episode 1: Faith
The story begins with Bigby sitting in a cab driving to Toad's apartment. Once he arrived, he catches Toad without his glamour on. After a brief dicussion about it, Toad told Bigby about how the Woodsman is in bad behavior. The Sheriff then goes upstairs to solve the matter. When Bigby either open or kicked the door opened, he found Woodsman slapping a girl to which Bigby quickly moved in to stop him. After a violent fight between the two rivals, it ends with Bigby as the victor. The sheriff turned to question the girl about what is going on. The girl didn't revealed her true identity but she did reveal the reason why the Woodsman was hitting her. After a brief moment, the Woodsman rose up and Bigby continue the fight which culminated with them both falling out of the window and landing on Toad's car.
Woody was quick to retaliate and managed to grab Bigby. After almost choking him and almost awakening his other form, the unknown girl saved him. The two starts making conversation and Bigby remarked that he feels like he knew her from somewhere. The Sheriff told the girl that he needs her statement at his office. After either giving the girl money or not, she gave the Sheriff a kiss and told him that he isn't as bad as people say he is.
Returning home to the Woodsland, Bigby encountered Beauty outside the building. After he either promised not to tell Beast about her or not, Bigby entered the building only to encounter Beast who asked about his wife. After another decision on whatever he told Beast about his wife's whereabouts, Bigby returned to his apartment. Once inside he found Colin sleeping on his couch. The two converse about their past and tonight's events. Colin told Bigby that life was easier with friends and he wasn't fooling him with his lone wolf attitude with the way he was looking at Snow. After either giving or refusing Colin a drink, Bigby finally allowed himself some shut eye.
Bigby woke up when someone knocked on his door. Assuming it is the girl, he went to open the door only to find Snow White. She urgently told Bigby to follow her outside. Once outside the building, there was something covered with a coat. Bigby uncovered it only to find the head of the girl. Bigby was in a distress, this was the first murder in Fabletown in a long time. After quickly investigating the area, Bigby split up with Snow in order to take the head to Doctor Swineheart.
Returning to the office, he found Snow having an argument with Ichabod Crane. The Deputy Mayor is angry that a murder has happened and berate both Snow and Bigby for failing to protect the fables. Crane left to get his massage, leaving Snow and Bigby to their investigation. Looking at the Book of Fables, Bigby notices a symbol that is similiar to the girl's ring. With help from Bufkin, they discover the identity of the girl. Her name was Faith from the Fairy Tale Allerleirauh. With help from the Magic Mirror, Bigby learned about the status of two person who knows Faith. Her father's corpse was showed (Probably killed by the invasion of the Adversary) and her husband Lawrence who is showed with a bloody knife. Just as they are about to leave, Toad called them and told them about someone is making a ruckus at Woody's apartment. Bigby is left with choice of going to Toad's place or Lawrence's first.
At Toad's place, Bigby and Snow see a man through the hole of the Woodsman's apartment. Entering the building and apartment to investigate, the duo find nothing. They hear Toad yelling at his son, Toad Jr. to be quiet and heads to their apartment. Inside, Toad tries to get Bigby and Snow to leave, but Bigby is suspicious and investigates Toad's apartment while Snow distracts T.J. in his room. Investigating, Bigby finds out that Toad was caught in a scuffle with Tweedledee, who assaulted him for Faith's location. Bigby and Snow finds Faith's trademark donkey skin in Toad's chimney and find a note to Lawrence inside. It had Faith's apology to Lawrence.
At Prince Lawrence's place, Bigby and Snow find Lawrence dying of a gunshot wound and thirst. Lawrence apologizes to Faith before dying. Investigating the place, Bigby finds a bloodstained suicide note written by Lawrence. The two also find Tweedledee hiding in Lawrence's closet, who, upon being found out, flees the place. Bigby chases after him and manages to corner him in an alleyway. Bigby interrogates Dee, but gets nowhere before Dee's brother Tweedledum knocks him out.
Snow later wakes up Bigby and the two go to the Trip Trap bar. The two talk and hint at their feelings for one another before they arrive at the bar, with Snow leaving Bigby to do his work.
Heading inside, Bigby immediately recieves dislike towards him by the bartender Holly and patron Grendel. The two refuse to cooperate when asked about the Woodsman's location. The Woodsman then comes out of the bar's restroom and is shocked to see Bigby. Instead of running or fighting, the Woodsman sullenly tells Bigby that he is through fighting with him and confesses that he originally planned to rob Red Riding Hood and her grandmother. He rescued them from Bigby in hopes of a reward, but failed to recieve anything. When told about Faith's death, the Woodsman panickedly pleads for his innocence, though Bigby had his doubts.
Grendel, hateful towards Bigby for obeying the "rich folks" at the Woodlands Apartments, starts a fight with him, transforming into his natural Fable form. As the fight ensues, Bigby slowly transforms into his first wolf form and gains victory over Grendel. Bigby then demands a drink from Holly to calm down and revert back to human form.
Tweedledee then arrives, offering money to anyone with Faith's location, but is surprised by Bigby's appearance. Tweedledee attempts to escape, as does the Woodsman, who was fearful after seeing Bigby's fight with Grendel. Bigby chooses one to arrest as the other flees.
Taking his catch back to the Woodlands, Bigby finds a group of police cars gathered around the apartment's front gates. After cuffing his arrest to a streetlamp, Bigby enters the crime scene and clearly horrified to see the decapitated head of Snow White on the front steps, just like Faith's head was.
Episode 2: Smoke and Mirrors
Bigby is interrogated by the mundy police force, but he is relunctant to answer directly due to his still lingering shock over seeing Snow's head. The police questioning and monitoring him suddenly pass out. Ichabod Crane arrives with the evidence collected and explains to Bigby he used a memory wiping spell to incapacitate the precinct. The two flee the scene back to the Woodlands.
In the basement, Bigby and Crane meet with Bluebeard who is interrogating Bigby's arrest. Bigby can either be diplomatic or violent with the prisoner, which would bring either a negative or positive reaction from Bluebeard respectively. Either way, Snow White enters the basement, revealing that she has been alive this whole time.
Snow takes Bigby to Crane's office to speak with Mr. Toad and his son. Toad Jr. reveals that he was the one who found the body of the imposter Snow White while he was swimming. After learning what he can from TJ, Bigby and Snow then examine the body Snow brought back and it's head that was left at the steps of the Woodlands.
Bigby finds that the body is glamored, but its glamor is cheap and faulty, indicated by the mismatching clothing and brooch. After Crane arrives, the body's glamor disappears, revealing it to be a female troll. They infer that Holly might know about the troll and head to the Trip Trap bar.
There, they find Jack annoying Holly and Grendel, and Bigby informs Holly of the troll's, named Lily and was Holly's sister, death. Bigby and Snow appeal to a devastated Holly and she informs them that Lily worked at Georgie's strip club.
Bigby heads there to confront Georgie about Lily, only for the strip club owner to offer him shows and dances. Georgie's assistant, Hans, lets slip about a record book of clients. When Georgie refuses to cooperate, Bigby takes Georgie's cricket club and threaten to destroy his club until he complies. Bigby opens the club's floor safe and finds the record book. He finds that Snow White had been in an appointment with a "Mr. Smith" at room 207. Bigby then meets with the Little Mermaid, who is a stripper at the club. She is unable to speak directly due to her employment's magical policies, so she gives him a key to the room 204.
Bigby then walks next door to the Open Arms Hotel, where the girls in Georgie's club would come with their clients for sex. Inside, Bigby finds Beauty working the front desk. Beauty reveals she has been taking this job in order to pay rent, and the things that happen in the hotel convinced Beauty to not tell Beast, though she intends to now that Bigby has discovered her secret. Beauty takes Bigby upstairs.
However, Beast finds Beauty and Bigby, misunderstanding their partnership for an affair and becomes enraged. Beast attacks Bigby, both midway to their beast forms. The fight breaks down the door to room 207, where they discover the murder scene of Lily. They discover a book, a costume, and an apple, all that are connected to the mundy version of Snow White. Bigby deduces that "Mr. Smith" had a fixation on Snow White, and came here with Lily in order to live out his fantasies.
Bigby finds an envelope and finds photos of Snow, one including himself. The final picture shocks both Bigby and Beauty. It is of Crane making love to Lily glamored as Snow, reenacting Snow's deep sleep scene. Meanwhile, Crane watches Bigby through the magic mirror, which he destroys with the empty genie lamp.

Episode 3: A Crooked Mile
Enraged beyond composure, Bigby storms through the Open Arms, fearful for Snow's safety. When he discovers the phone is broken, Beast tells him that Snow might be at the Buckingham Bridge, attending Lily's funeral. As Bigby leaves, Beauty warns him that Snow has been through a lot and that he should break the news to her gently, as the revelation will be even worse for her.
Arriving at the Buckingham Bridge, Bigby find Snow giving a eulogy for Lily to a funeral congregation of Holly, Gren, Vivian, Nerissa, and (if he was saved previously), Lawrence. Holly meets Bigby with open hostility, exclaiming he wasn't invited and blaming him for Lily's body being thrown down the Witching Well. Snow quickly defends him and after the initial tension subsides, goes to speak with him privately. Bigby reveals Crane's actions to Snow, to her horror and disgust. As the two consider how to handle the situation, Nerissa approaches and asks that Snow be present for the next part of the ceremony. Standing back to allow them space, Bigby is suddenly approached from behind by the Tweedles, who threaten him with shotguns. The two demand that Bigby stop searching for Crane, and threaten to harm Snow if he doesn't comply. Holly then spots them and furiously demands that they leave. The confrontation quickly escalates, and a fight breaks out as Holly, Gren and Bigby attack the Tweedles. Shooting and incapacitating the three, the Tweedles escape and vanish into the night. <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:16.5pt;">
