Well, he was made of a special magic tree, wasn’t he? Or am I just mixing this up with the Fables comic book Pinocchio?[adrotate group="5"]February 29, 2012 at 7:52 pm #137949
I don’t think that Pinocchio was made of a magic tree. I thought he came alive because the blue fairy made him come alive because Geppetto was lonely. I don’t remember. Even if he was made out of a magic tree i still don’t want Geppetto to decide to send him through the tree possibly taking away the chance of sending Snow and Emma through. I just don’t want that to happen.
I think it is possible that people could go through to the real world some other way. I just don’t want someone to be sent through the same tree wardrobe ahead of Emma.February 29, 2012 at 8:44 pm #137954tast_e_cakesParticipant
I believe in the Disney movie Pinocchio was a puppet that Geppetto carved. Before he went to bed after carving the puppet he saw a star and wish on it for the puppet to become a real boy. The blue fairy came after Geppetto went to be and made the puppet come alive but he had to prove himself in order to become a real boy. In the Adventures of Pinocchio, Mr. Cherry finds a block of pinewood and begins to carve a leg for his table, then the wood yells out not to cut so hard, Mr. C was scared and gave the wood to his neighbor Geppetto who in turn carves Pinocchio. So I guess it depends where the creators are taking the info from, knowing them a little bit of both.February 29, 2012 at 9:55 pm #137958nightreaderParticipant
He wouldn’t have had to go through the closet if we’re assuming he was made of the tree, you know. If he was made from the magical tree then his body could have protected him all on its own and he could have escaped the curse without the help of the closet, meaning the closet still transported onlie one, i.e. Emma. I don’t find this theory very likely though :/March 1, 2012 at 12:46 am #137966
But Pinocchio was a real boy at the time of the curse. And he is alive and a person so he would be going through it. And Geppetto could not know that Pinocchio wouldn’t be considered the one person that could be sent through. I don’t know. I am just not a fan of the idea. It is like a loop hole that i don’t really like.March 1, 2012 at 3:00 am #137973tast_e_cakesParticipant
All of the other characters reverted back to their original form. Example Ashley’s prince disappeared in FTL but reappeared in SB, Jiminey was a cricket in FTL but turned back into a man in SB. So I would think if anything he either was protected from the curse because he was made out of the magic tree or he reverted back to a wooden puppet.March 1, 2012 at 9:25 am #137980miaParticipant
Then again, Pinocchio’s parents who had been turned into puppets remained puppets in SB. We see them in Mr. Gold’s pawn shop.
LOL, I’m so stupid. Instead of just looking up what a pawnbroker actually is, I just kept trying to figure it out myself, but the only thing I could think of was chess … Just looked it up now and I finally get what it is and that it’s totally fit for Rumple … Ah, nothing better than to solve a mystery and learning new words. 😀March 1, 2012 at 12:29 pm #137982
I don’t think that they are going to have Pinocchio revert to a piece of wood because then he could never enter back into the story. I wonder if they are ever going to have a Geppetto/Pinocchio episode. We haven’t seen Geppetto in awhile.March 7, 2012 at 7:10 pm #138340leodiousParticipant
I don’t know if this has been mentioned before, but I am thinking they wanted to make it clear August added to the book, and added stories of what really happened and is not trying to mislead Henry or Emma. (As an aside, I think he is trying open her eyes to what is really going on.)
In episode ten, “7:15 a.m.,” near the end, James encounters Red who tells him Snow is gone, and it appears then as if he turns to ride off directly after.
Then, as soon as Henry gets his book back in “What Happened to Frederick,” we focus on the book and fade to the same scene, but there is more too it, and Red ends up riding away from soldiers. This is an extended version of the same scene, and it implies that the new version of the book contains the longer version with more story.
I know the first scene was cut both for time and because the focus wasn’t on that part of the story, but on Snow drinking the anti-love potion, but I think a secondary purpose was to set us up for the scene in which the book includes new information, as a clue. I think this because we didn’t need that scene at all before seeing Snow and Grumpy in her bedroom. We just needed to see him leaving to find her.
This this is a not-too-subtle way of showing us the remade book includes new and/or extended information and maybe entirely new stories. I don’t know who August is or why he would do this, but it makes sense that’s what he is doing, especially as we saw him varnishing papers, which would imply he was making new pages.March 7, 2012 at 7:48 pm #138345SlurpeezParticipant
@ Leodious: I think that scene of Prince Charming & Red Riding Hood in episode, What Happened to Frederick was simply what happened right before the same scene in episode 10 7:15 where it left off.
