These are comments from the last podcast. Copied them here, because I think it’s an interesting new theory.
Oh and there’s no lemurs in Nepal! They are found only in Madagascar. Suspicious!
I just want to add a tidbit that Eddy Kitsis mentioned in an interview (a few days ago.) He said to pay close attention to the Lemurs at the beginning of the episode. I searched Wikipedia and found a very interesting article. Most interesting is the varient of August’s name included within. Something about wandering/vengeful spirits.
That reference to lemures being restless spirits is fascinating! It’s even more interesting that St. Augustine described them as evil manes who torment the living. Could August be the ghost of Rumple’s son or some other departed soul haunting Regina? What I paid attention to was August’s reference to their eyes that reflect light so they appear to glow at night. The reference to Nepal is also very interesting, which is where a lot of spiritual monks live.
August could be the Regina’s love that was lost!! If he’s a lost vengeful spirit. We don’t yet know how she really lost her love. Maybe he’s either trying to help people change their lives and thus breaking the curse to take “revenge” on Regina or doing it to help Regina get back her heart, to fill the void that’s been created by the curse.
