For the theory of how Pinocchio could have made it into our world and if he is August.
First is that Pinocchio was created from the same wood that was used in the making of the cabinet made for Emma. Because of the wood having special properties for protecting the person using it. Pinocchio wouldn’t be affected by the curse, like Emma, it would send him somewhere random in the world and he would have all of his memories which is why he could be August for having so much insight on the curse and on Emma’s role in all this. You guys have also mentions clues to him being Pinocchio so theirs no need to repeat all of those, but one thing I found the most interesting is that you must realize August is new to Storybrooke and out of all the people he goes to for advice (especially about his father) is Mother Superior aka the Blue Fairy and all of the characters (excluding the main ones) that were involved with todays episode were the characters from Pinocchio (in Storybrooke that is).
Also,The theory about why and how, August is dying. I believe you guys were on to something about him turning back into wood (if he is Pinocchio). August said he needs magic for a cure so lets look back to see why this is. First Pinocchio is just a wooden-puppet nothing more nothing less until the Blue Fairy comes and uses her *magic* to turn Pinocchio into a real boy. And if my theory above is correct as too why August would be Pinocchio. It would explain why he’s dying. For Pinocchio to be alive he needs *magic* but sense he’s enter a world with no magic he will slowly turn back into his wooden-puppet form. This is why August needs Emma to return the *magic* is so important to him.
