I was hoping that August was Bae because that scene with him and Gold was really touching. Since August isn’t who we thought he was and we were mislead, do you think that the writers of the show will mislead us again into thinking he is Pinocchio. Maybe he is an even bigger character that we never thought of.
Also i was thinking about the whole OZ idea. Though I dont actually believe August is the tin man I thought it was interesting the similarities between him getting out of bed and how the Tin-man was first found almost stiff-like. Again I DO NOT THINK that he is the tin man but things like the oil cans in Mr. Golds shop might forshadow future episodes pointing towards the story of Oz.
Just a thought. 🙂
