Ok, what have we got for August:
Pinocchio: Yes because of the hints dropped – shin splint, does not lie – (but Pinocchio does lie), saved by Gepetto since Gepetto made the wardrobe. Only way that’s possible, IMO, is if Pinocchio became part of the wardrobe otherwise Emma wouldn’t have been able to go through.
Bae: Can’t be because the timing doesn’t work unless he is saved either by Rumple or the Blue Fairy.
August knows too much re the curse and FTL not to be a major player. Yet he was able to arrive in Storybrooke. Which means he was able to leave or was never there to begin with until the day he showed up. If he was able to leave, he was unaffected by the curse (or there is a loophole we don’t know about yet). If he was never in SB to begin with, but is part of FTL, how did he escape the curse? Is he from one of the other worlds/realms that Jefferson mentions to Emma? If he is Peter Pan, he could have escaped the curse because he was visiting Wendy and et al at the time the curse was enacted but how would he know what he knows? I have the same question if he is a character from Oz. If they hadn’t shown Prince Thomas from FTL as Sean in SB I would venture to guess August is the missing Prince Thomas.
August as Pinocchio explains how he knows about the curse and Emma as the savior. Still doesn’t explain to me how he escaped the curse nor how Gepetto could possibly have helped him.
August as Rumple’s son can be explained how he escapes the curse (a little Rumple magic) but if Bael escapes FTL way before the curse how does he know what he knows?
So which character knows about the curse, knows about the savior and had a way to escape the curse without jeopardizing Emma’s escape?
