I’m also going to say that August probably is not Pinocchio. I also never watched Lost but from what I can tell, the writers are really good at storytelling-they love to surprise people. And honestly to me, the idea of August being Pinocchio in a leather jacket not only doesn’t really fit, it’s also kinda lame.
For one thing like obisgirl said, he looks nothing like Pinocchio. If you look back at previous episodes, Pinocchio is shown as a kid with red curly hair. August has dark wavy hair. He could’ve dyed his hair to avoid being recognized, but until we see the episode about August’s backstory, we won’t know for sure.
Why would Gepetto use the tree as a test run for his son? That would be extremely selfish or him, especially since the tree can carry only one. They only have one try to send baby Emma to our world before the Queen’s curse. If he did do that, he’d have to ask the Blue Fairy for a second tree and I really don’t think they have the time to carve out a second wardrobe.
Exactly! Everyone keeps forgetting that one detail: The tree could only save one. Emma was the only one in that tree. True, Pinocchio could’ve been carved from that same tree, but again we won’t know for sure until we see the kid’s backstory.
@Midnight Dreary I also want to say that he’s Baelfire. I REALLY want to. But there’s one slight detail that sets them apart: August has blue eyes and Baelfire has brown eyes. Besides that, I’m convinced they’re the same person.
