Oh, wow. I hadn’t thought about August saying that he doesn’t lie but then lying anyway because he is Pinocchio. Pinnochio was my first theory for who AWB was but then I went off on several tangents. Honestly this is driving me crazy. I spent a good part of yesterday researching lemurs and Nepal trying to come up with ANYTHING!! What I don’t get with the Pinnochio theory is why would EQ say that AWB seemed familar to her? That would lead me to believe that he would have to have been someone who was close to her in FTL. And aside from the fact that in the original (Disney version anyway) story version of Pinnochio, he didn’t spend any time hanging out with an EQ, we saw Pinnochio hard at work with Gepetto creating the wardrobe right up until the time the curse with inacted. This means that Pinnochio wouldn’t have spent any time with the EQ in FTL so he wouldn’t seem familiar to her. I would also assume that Regina knows everyone in Storybrooke so although some people are saying that he might have been in Storybrooke the whole time, I don’t think that’s the case. So he would have to be someone the EQ knew well in FTL to seem familiar to her in Storybrooke. I keep going back to the lemur legends of them being the spirits of dead ancestors.
