You know one thing I’ve wondered about since the very beginning of the show? Isn’t Gepetto a single man in, at least, the Disney version of Pinoccho? I don’t recall the story talking about a widower or maybe it just didn’t go into that much detail. But in the pilot episode when Emma is in jail in Storybrooke and (I can’t remember Gepetto’s SB name now, sorry) Gepetto is in the Sheriff’s office he makes a comment about how he wishes he had had children but he and his wife were never able to have children. I found the mention of his wife strange – where is this wife?? Is he a widower in SB??. It now makes me wonder. We are all getting stuck on August being Pinocchio AND the boy who found Emma on the side of the road because the newspaper clipping said that a “local” boy found Emma on the side of the road. What if both Gepetto and Pinocchio were in on the whole thing from the beginning and there was a “wife” on the outside world who was somehow arranged to raise Pinocchio so they could keep their eye on Emma. This could explain the “local boy” documentation – if he had a “mother” in the real world no one would know that two children actually appeared on the side of the road at the same time. And I’m gonna go out on a limb here. Kitsis and Horowitz said something like it would be sad if we never saw this character again – what if the mother was . . . Maleficent??? After all she did not want the EQ to enact the Dark Curse and warned her about the effect it would have on her. Even though Maleficent and the EQ appeared to be frenemies, she seems like someone that Rumple would use – someone that he would be able to convince would come out on top in some way if she would help him.
