OMG I have a theory! (Shocker right?) Well not really a theory a certainty of sorts the guy we saw at the beginning is BAELFIRE I mean think about it he’s about the right age he’s in what I’m assuming is New York City ( why did I always have the gut feeling Bae was in NYC?) The matching rotory (no idea if I spelled that right don’t care) phone, and that note in what I’m assuming is August’s hand writing was brought by dove any thoughts

I do think he’s connected with August… and it’s very possible august sent the postcard as well it seems to fit his paper and writing tendencies. White Doves met snow white at a well in the animated Disney film.October 2, 2012 at 3:48 pm #155121mujieParticipant
How would you tell Baelfire’s age?! He could’ve appeared at any place at any time.
But the stranger seemed to know too much. Bae wanted to get away from magic. Why would he know about Storybrooke? Plus, I kind of want Bae to still be a kid. There’s a lack of kids here. Only Henry. Others on and off.October 7, 2012 at 5:31 pm #155857ceegeParticipant
I think the stranger is not Bae, but the Tinman from OZ.
Remember, the sequence opened with a horse. One of the OZ books is called “The wishing horse of Oz”.
L. Frank Baum tried to end the series by saying he lost communication with the land of Oz. Then, we he went back to it, he claimed he had re-established communication with the help of wireless telegraph. This would tie in with all the communication equipment in the room.
The shoes hanging by the windows represent the ruby slippers. Add to that the red poster near by (rubies are red) and the poster of a human heart.
Furthermore, L. Frank Baum wrote a number of books under a female pseudonym. That could explain the female (rather than male) bowling trophy. And before he became a writer, he owned a store called “Baum’s Bazaar” – the room certainly looks like a bazaar.
And, if he is Henry’s father, it would explain why he left Emma when she was pregnant – he has no heart.October 7, 2012 at 5:47 pm #155859sarah-daye handParticipant
I want to stick with the stranger is Bae theory. I don’t think K and H will put the audience through that mislead again. I am referring to the August being Bae but really Pinocchio. Regardless of who he is from FTL I really want him to be Henry’s father!! I think it is the perfect time to bring in Henry’s father since Emma isnt there to keep him away.October 9, 2012 at 5:27 pm #156210LisaFromOHParticipant
That is a very interesting theory, ceege. I don’t think I’ve seen any theories about the tinman before.October 9, 2012 at 10:48 pm #156219ceegeParticipant

While it’s true that they did mislead us with an episode implying August might be Bae, they have done nothing so far to imply the new stranger is Bae. They only left clue and let us speculate.October 10, 2012 at 10:18 am #156268gypsyParticipant
I think the NYC Guy is Bae. I think he’s also Peter Pan. NY City- Little Italy- famous bakery called “Peter Pan Pastries”. Also, Northeastern US has the Peter Pan Bus Line…with stops along the route that include Boston (where Emma was from) and Maine (Storybrooke). Been in business since the 30’s…..some of the vintage microphones look to be from the 30’s. The monacles and the Cleaners and Hatters sign, obviously a AIW nod – could be a clue that Jefferson sent the post card…???October 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm #156284UrsulaParticipant
I think that he’s Bae, too.
The dove/pigeon that delivered the postcard could have been a reference to the book that introduced the character and mythology of Peter Pan, ‘The Little White Bird’.
