There is a photo of Pinocchio (as a real boy) working with his father, Gepetto, in their workshop. Remember Gepetto made the enchanted wardrobe that spirited Emma away, and protected her from EQ’s Dark Curse. I believe Pinocchio fell asleep (or Gepetto hid him inside–a father’s love, you know!) in the wardrobe and went along with Emma to safety.
Right there, that is something Jiminy would have advised Gepetto against because it was only supposed to be Emma in the wardrobe.[adrotate group="5"]March 27, 2012 at 12:45 pm #139951miaParticipant
Plus, the Blue Fairy says only one can travel in the closet, not that there’s no space, but that the magic only carries one. I mean, Snow would’ve fit in there so it’s obvious both Emma and Pinocchio would’ve fit in there. The tree’s magic just wouldn’t have been enough.March 28, 2012 at 1:48 am #140081belle4rumpleParticipant
Anyone think the name August has a double meaning? Maybe a LOST Easter egg even? August is the eighth month – 8 is one of the lottery numbers.
The writers have said within the next three episodes, and defintely by the end of the season we will know who he is. I think he’s either Rumple’s son or future Henry which is why he knows all about the book!March 28, 2012 at 3:54 pm #140185SlurpeezParticipant
I’ve never seen Lost so I can’t comment on that. I do know August is of Latin origin and means great or magnificent. I’ve thought that it could be a title like “The Great Wayne Booth.” Wayne Booth was a 20th century literary critic of fictional works and had several theories like the “unreliable narrator.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_C._Booth

Okay…so all of the talk about Lemurs being vengeful spirits…August saying he was in Storeybrooke for Emma…Regina saying he was familiar…I could be sooo far off here but could he be Graham as a vengeful spirit? The writters said that the Huntsman was coming back in the season finally and he had gotten even more handsome in his absence…Graham was the first we saw to believe, he had a thing for Emma, and Regina knew him and killed him. If anyone is vengeful towards Regina and wanting to set things right it could be him. I know that this is crazy and far fetched but I don’t put anything past these writters.March 29, 2012 at 8:37 am #140268mel_hobbsParticipant
My friends and i have been tossing august theories back and forth. We think the pages August added to henrys book he had taken with him which made him able to leave storybrooke because he had to gi back eventually to put the book back together and he still had a part of FTL with himMarch 29, 2012 at 10:52 am #140269nonnieParticipant
I have said this before, August is Pionocchio made from enchanted wood, the heart wood of this tree. He therefore transported on his own when the curse hit. He went with the cabinet and found the baby at the side of the road.March 29, 2012 at 12:30 pm #140274killianhookfanParticipant
Nonnie – I think I’m really starting to like your theory. One of my theories has been that Pinocchio was changed back into a wooden puppet and was placed into the wardrobe and then transported along with Emma (so then there would still be only one person traveling in the tree), but I think I like your theory better. And it does make sense because Gepetto brought the tree in along with the Blue Fairy – we don’t know where they got the tree, so it’s possible Gepetto already had the tree and used it to create Pinocchio.March 29, 2012 at 9:52 pm #140303theoniongirlParticipant
I rather like the August as Pinocchio theory (heartwood and all that) … but how do you then explain the “local boy” description in the newspaper article?
Unless he was pretty quick on his feet and told the police (hence, the media) that after he took baby Emma to them … and they believed him without questioning the story. Which is kind of unlikely.

Maybe since Gepetto made the magic wardrobe, he found a way to sneak his son to safety too. I’m betting on the Pinocchio theory- August has to be an insider to know what he knows, and they made a point to let us know that Gepetto’s Storybrooke alter-ego didn’t have children. At that time, I just assumed it was how he was affected by the curse- Pinocchio was his “happily ever after.” But now, I am thinking he escaped to our world and helped get baby Emma to safety. Maybe the newspaper was mistaken about him being a local boy or he lied.
