Google is the real magic. I looked up booth and pinochio and the first sight was the story of pinochio sneaking into a booth where he saw his first puppet show and made a mistake causing him to lie. All evidence leads to booth being pinochio. A fairy tale character can come to sb if he/she left before cursed like emma. Booth could have snuck away with emma or in his own trunk made by japetto. This story could be what was changed in the new book given to henry. Booth is also his earth name so that was not a lie he told emma. Also for all we know in this show pinochio may be rumples son. He could have been placed under a puppet curse like the couple in archies story. This would explain how the book has all knowledge about fairy land. Only regina and gold knows the true story and its doubtful they would tell. So my money is on pinochio. Now who was the records keeper several stories back?
Didn't anyone notice the red spray paint in Regina's desk? She's the one who sprayed "tramp" on Mary Margaret's car. I think August may have changed some pages in the book.
I think he might be Rumpelstiltskin son :)
I am inclined to agree that August is Pinochio.
AWB - A Wooden Boy?
Just thinking out loud :)
Some have been asking what August was doing w/the book. My little girl got it. She said, "That's how Henry got his book back, Mommy! August was dipping the pages in the well water so Henry would get back what was lost to him, just like Abigail got back her knight."
Nope. Don't buy it. The curse has to do with MEMORY, not character. David isn't a tool because of the curse. He's a tool because he avoided every single opportunity to tell the truth. Kathryn gave him a chance; he acted like a coward and lied. AND...he lied to MM about it, leaving her wide open to take the brunt of the fallout, including a big slap to the face. Kathryn should have slapped HIS face, and he should have been brave enough to sit there and take it.
If the curse was about character, Ella's boyfriend wouldn't have proposed, Jiminy Cricket wouldn't have stood up to Regina, and Hansel & Gretel wouldn't have been reunited with their dad.
I don't think August is Henry, because even though nothing romantic has happened yet with Emma, there is a chemistry there and I don't think that would happen if he knew Emma was his mother. Also, if he is Pinocchio and he never lies, then didn't he just lie about his name? I think that although the idea of him being Pinocchio is awesome, then he would have lied about his name and that pokes holes in it. I'm betting on him being part of the creation of the original book.
August Wayne Booth--was digging around on the 'net, found that lots of people think it has another meaning or is an anagram, etc.
Wayne comes from a word meaning wagonmaker. Since wagons were wood, back in the day, we could stretch that to mean carpenter, eh?
August is great or revered, and Booth refers to a hut, of all things.
Besides Geppetto, what other fairytale character built things?
I think that David is very confused, not cowardly as most people seem to think. Remember when he came out of the coma, he was attracted to Mary M, but didn't know why. Regina was manipulating them all, the last thing she wants is for them to be happy. She made Catherine and David believe they were in love and married. He's a good guy in both worlds, hopefully he will start to remember like Catherine did, and not feel so guilty for loving Mary M. Probably that is why Catherine is now missing. Love the way they continue the stories and keep us guessing, the twists are great. I love all the characters, its such a fun show. Not sure who I think August is yet, he seems to know quite a bit about Henry though.
And as for who august W. Booth is? I still think he's
A descendant of the writer of the book, the grimme lineage per say. Imagine ur the original writer of the book, before the book u were writing wonderful stories of a land far away and happily ever after.....then nothing, they all dissapear - he wrote each fairytales final stories andtold the entire thing to his child.........august w. Booth, sounds so contrived that it could be a fake, or maybe even an annnorgam.....I dunno but I definitely do not think he was actually living in the fairytale world cause he would have been transferred to storybrook like everyone else was. So he's definitely something else.
Oh, and one last thing..... reginas a whore
remember there was pages nursing in the book?.... I think he was returning the torn out pages and rebinding the turn book, and by hand, that was kinda sexy for sone reason...lol
Davids a coward, but its probably part of the curse, to make people act opposite of wat they would normally act, so that in the end they are ultimately the ones preventing their happy ending. (getting in their own way I guess u could say.
I loved abigail, sooo much - I like the fairytail version of her 100% better!
Ok maybe as a guy I feel compelled to defend david but he is doing as well as any dead man placed under a curse by a wicked queen. Charming didnt care that he left abby at alter. He was just lucky that it was a fairy tale and everything worked out in the end. No luck david. He did not want to hurt catherine but he did not love her but loved mm. what could he do, tell catherine that not only was he leaving her but he was dumping her for another woman. Sure catherine was no desperate housewife, that would have made it easy. I prefer her to mm or snow. I hope she was kidnapped by queen and not erased or killed. This show is like heroes where guests or minor characters are so good u wanna c more of them. What I find amusing by all the responces is that charmings supposed out dates mocho heroics and old fashioned honor are still popular.
Both booth and wardrobe mean "enclosure." Booth is Pinocchio. Gepetto made a second magical wardrobe, in which he stashed his boy. Pinocchio, 7 years old at the time, came through the transformation just like infant Emma, but with knowledge of the curse. He is "of Fairyland" so he can come to Storybook just like Emma. However, he does have knowledge of Fairyland and the curse. He is a wildcard that neither Reginna nor Gold has knowledge of.
Cant help feeling that August is Henry. Don't know how it would be possible but my evidence:
1. He knew where the book was
2. He doesn't lie. Henry has been concerned about being believed throughout the story line
3. He would know from having read the book where to find the well.
4. He of course would have been to story Brooke having been a resident as a child.
5. He can come and go freely unaffected by the curse.
6. He makes no romantic overtures toward Emma.
So my theory may get shot to hell in an episode coming soon but I think he was repairing the book from where the ending was ripped out by Emma to prevent the mayor from finding out her role in the curse. Just my thoughts. Would love to hear what everyone thinks of them.
August has an old type writer. You know he is going to write in Emmas part of the story breaking the spell. He might even be able to mess with gold and the mayor...
I want to know what W Booth did to the book. Did he copy it? Did he give the copy back, or the original? If he copied it why? I thought that maybe he was the one that wrote the book. I mean someone had to have written it, so what that someone him? But I really want to know what he did to the book.
As somebody else said, the W. Booth thing may be a reference to Abraham Lincoln's assassain John Wilkes Booth. Booth is reported to have shouted Sic semper tyrannis (thus may it be to tryants always) right before shooting Lincoln. Perhaps it is the job of Booth to somehow kill the queen (i.e. the tyrant). I feel like this character is the Desmond of Once in that he can break the rules (or the curse in this case) and maybe travel between the two worlds. Very interesting direction. More please.
Just wanted to say how I LOVE this review. It's so refreshing to hear some people are as disgusted by affairs and adultery for entertainment as I am, and I completely agree with the assessment of David. I would like to add that I wonder what Red Riding Hood's role will be in all this...she always seems to pop up at important moments.
So the keys are for everyones house...and i believe August changed the story in the book
I love that MM and David are (temporarily) over. David is such a loser. Still love Charming and Snow though.
I loved August and Emma's scenes. I don't really care who he is in the fairytale world, I just want more scenes with them. And to find out more about what he's doing in Storybrooke. What was he doing with the book before he returned it to Emma? Was he making a second copy? Or was he changing it? Does that mean that he's working for the major? But she doesn't know him...
What happened to Kathryn? Why did the major burn her letter to David? So no one would be able to find her? And I want to find out more about "real world Frederick". Why have I never heard of a princess named Abigail and a prince named Frederick before?
Interesting thoughts about August being Pinocchio. It has made me think about the possibility.
My original thoughts on August were that he is a minstrel. They were travelling storytellers that used to tell fairy tales to royals. Notice that the hankerchief August wears around his neck is purple (a color of royalty). Also, I think that if August were an actual character that he would have been confined to Storybrooke as the other characters are. I don't think the Queen would send Pinocchio to a place where she couldn't keep an eye on him.
But it does seem that he has some kind of prior knowledge of Henry. He was able to find Henry's hiding spot for the book. Also, he spoke of Henry to Emma, "He's a smart boy", as if he knows that he has figured it all out. I cannot wait to see the pages that he has added to the book.
I mean i really love the show, and i liked the reveal of Augusts name, and the mystery involving him and the book becoming a bit more complex and apparent - but why don't they give us a bit more than just some flirting and him looking cool and cute. This show started with more than that. It was one of the few shows, that are made "for the whole family", that i instantly enjoyed.
I like David and MM, as a part of it. But what about all the other people in the town? We only met a few of them yet. I want the whole thing.
The scene in the end made me realize how much i missed operation cobra!
The whole David and Mary Storyline is becoming really annoying for me. I liked it in the first place and i even like the dilemma that delayed their romance, because obviously they couldn't get together that early in the series.
But now after the xxth twist i really don't care anymore.
If David is the wrong twin, that whould be a nice turn, but i have a feeling that i will just go on like that for who knows how many episodes.
I'm glad that Henry got his book back and there seems to be more progress in the overall storyline coming. After an episode like this, i almost feel if the producers started to assume, that only very stereotypical women, who are only interested in romance, drama and horses watch the show. And that i whould find kind of insulting.
I think he's Pinocchio. I thought about it since the first time when he asked Emma for a drink. He plays with words. He asked her for a drink, and once she agreed, he said he never said "now". That made me think he goes out of his way not to lie... And this episode all but proved it. "Say what you can about me, but I always say the truth". Once he said that line, I was sold. My girlfriend told me that I'm psychic for having figured that out two weeks ago.
Anyway, it's all but proven he's Pinocchio. Pinocchio learned a valuable lesson about lying and that's why he makes sure he says the truth.
got this from another blog...
n 1808, Jacob Grimm was appointed court librarian to the King of Westphalia. In 1812 the brothers published their first volume of fairy tales, Tales of Children and the Home. They had collected the stories from peasants and villagers; they were also aided by their close friend August von Haxthausen.
August is obvious
