The Blue fairy was very specific on this part & I will quote direct from her here “The enchantment is indeed powerful, but all power has its limits & this tree can protect only one”. For me that sums it up it can protect only one being, Not two from the curse.
So she said, yes, but does that necessarily make it the truth? I mean, technically, even if pregnant Snow had gone in that wardrobe, it would have been protecting TWO, her and the unborn Emma.
So why couldn’t they have sent Pinocchio through first, so he was waiting there to collect Emma when she came through next? If Pinocchio WAS sent, by the Blue Fairy, as a protector for Emma, it’d make sense to keep that secret. If the evil folks know there are two people attempting escape, they’ll go after both of them. If Pinocchio went through first without anyone knowing, so no one could try to stop him, then even if for some reason Emma didn’t make it, they still had Pinocchio in the new world, so it’s still a win.
And even if it WAS true that the tree could only protect one, I can still see Blue Fairy finding another way to send Pinocchio through in secret, for the reasons stated above.
Also the newspaper said 7yr old “local” boy finds ….. Not 7yr old orphan finds (for those that say Pincchino went through the same wardrobe as Emma).
That regularly gets brought up as a glitch in the theory. I reckon they could work around it though because they haven’t shown us the exact details of how it happened. We weren’t able to read the whole article to see what info it has on the boy, if his parents were interviewed and whatnot. Maybe he turned baby Emma in, said he lived somewhere nearby and then slipped away before any more questions could be asked of him. The fact we haven’t seen that whole story, means they could take it in any direction still.
Also August says “I dont lie” or words to that effect repeatedly to Emma- well he does so lie,
Exactly! Would they have gone to great pains to have him insist he DOESN’T lie, then say, “BTW that scene where he talks about the lemurs, something in there was a hint to his identity,” if we weren’t supposed to notice that he’s a liar? To me, that scene just proved he’s a liar, which was a key plot point in Pinocchio’s story.
It’s interesting to see how different people interpret all the different aspects of this show. One scene that proves something to one person proves the exact opposite to someone else. LOL Keeps everyone on their toes and creates confusion. I like it. 😉
& last but not least lol, Doesnt the kid who plays pinocchio have very bright chestnut or Red hair? Bit of a stretch to go from ginna to dk brown dont you think.
Someone put up Bae & Pinocchio photos with August’s & he looks Nothing like Pinocchio at all, if anything it gives credence to the August is Bae camp – as the resemblance is rather solid (& Im not a big August is Bae camper either lol) 😉
That’s why a lot of people write off the Pinocchio theory, coz he’s got the wrong coloured hair and eyes. Though he’s still got the wrong colour eyes to be Bae too. Actually, according to the Once Wiki I just looked up, Pinocchio has blue eyes, like August, but I’m sure in all the discussion about it, I’ve seen people say that Pinocchio has green eyes, which is why he can’t be August. Anyway, Bae’s eyes are brown, and August’s are most definitely blue, so basically, neither kid has the right colour eyes.
