Hi Penny. Welcome! I also wondered if maybe AWB was making a copy of the book and trying make the pages look older while changing the book a bit. What I wasn’t sure about was the whole part at the well where he talked about how drinking the water would return to the drinker something that was lost. I wondered if that was just thrown in there though to make the viewers assume he was talking about the book when he was really referring to something else (her parents??). Also, my original thoughts about him making a copy of the book and/or changing the pages and/or adding pages has been altered a bit after I watched the episode a second time because AWB told Emma “One thing I never do is lie.” This also made me again wonder if AWB is Pinnochio. Originally I wondered if Emma was found by the side of road by Pinnocio who came through the wardrobe with her in his wooden puppet form but the picture of her file with the newspaper clipping saying she had been found by a “local boy” shot that theory to pieces. But AWB’s comment about never lying does again make me wonder if he is Pinnochio. But, who knows, the way the writers try to tease it might just be them trying to get us to THINK he’s Pinnochio.
