I really don't think he's Henry's father because you'd still recognise the father of your child regardless of how many many years on it is.
I think it was pretty clear that he's connected to the book of fairytales. He's able to enter Storybrook which no regular person is able to do however, he's also able to leave which means he's not a fairytale character. He had never visited Storybrook until large changes started to take place and the book was destroyed.
It'll be interesting to see exactly HOW he's connected to the making of the book? Is he somebody that needs to protect the book before these fairytales are lost? Is he a grimm ancestor but since fairytales were originally written by several authors, I'm trying to figure out how he's better connected? MAYBE he didn't write the book because we only saw him sealing pages and binding the book... but he would've had to have got his hands on the new written and drawn pages somehow?
There is no way August is Henry's father. Don'tt you think Emma would recognize him???
Maybe August is the one who wrote the story, and maybe hes Henry's father
I thought for sure that when something once lost was about to show up it would be Graham, little bit disappointed that it wasn't so.
As for August I think he added pages to the book, maybe it all changes I mean the ending of the book depending on what happens with Emma or maybe the ending had to stay hidden from Regina before, she has read the book I think? And she would not let Henry keep it if it had to much information in it that could bring her down.
August has to be an adult Pinocchio.. Did anyone see how obsessed with water he is? Pinocchio got trapped in Monstro! Plus, in Fairy Tale World, Pinocchio was obviously made of wood, as was the tree that Emma was placed in. It was stated that a single HUMAN could be placed in the tree. Pinocchio was made of wood. When they came to our (real) world, he was turned into a seven year old boy, who "found" Emma. Now he is only a few years older than her!! If it's true, I cant wait for a scene between Pinocchio and Gepetto.
Well I wonder if David is the twin that died in fairyland and the real prince is still out their some where in storybrooke. I think Regina has locked up Abigail like she did Belle. Okay, now can someone please get a one up on Regina I mean come on this chick gets away with murder!
August W. Booth. Like everyone else, names mean something in the fairytale world. I did some research and would like to put this out for discussion. If you use a thesaurus:
august means - Imposing, impressive, grand, majestic, dignified, noble, eminent (makes this guy sound like he's one of the good guys)
Booth means - Cubicle, stall, stand, closet (now this is a bit of a stretch), closet is another word for a cabinet or cupboard or wardrobe.
Who ever Mr Booth is, he is definitely moving the plot along.
I also wondered if he copied the entire book or just added a story to it.
@Agnes- Love your train of thought!!...
adding to those thoughts........... August Wayne Booth .....maybe he is be the assasin tool that Emma needs to slay the evil Queen(John Wilkes Booth)......he has added clues to Henry's book (Wayne C Booth).......because of his back back history in FTL (Pinocchio)
Just a thought - maybe the name "August W. Booth" is an anagram. Word jumbles, anyone?
Thank you for making Abigail very cool and brave in both Storybrooke and Fairyland. I think her story will continue because things are changing in Storybrooke, and she needs to meet up Frederick in the real world. Because Rumple wasn't present at all in this story, stands to reason that Mr. Gold had something to do w/Abby's disappearance. I was indeed holding my breath when she was driving out of the town.
James is SO HOT in Fairyland. But, David is such a TOOL in Storybrooke. Guys, young boys whose moms watch OUAT - watch and learn. No matter how much you love someone, do NOT treat them like David treats Mary and Kathryn. If you can't be honest w/them, it's not a good relationship. No, I don't want David and MM together if his character is this weak. How will he stand up to Regina when the final battle begins if his sense of right and wrong is all screwed up? Best to wait until he gets stronger emotionally and spiritually.
@Joyful - No, you're not the only who noticed the "W. Booth" connection to Lincoln. I love history, and I'm not old. Any character w/the last name of Booth makes me flash to the Lincoln assassination. Considering the importance of names in this series, it is VERY doubtful IMO that having a "W. Booth" character is a mindless coincidence. I think it is deliberate and we'll know why in the future. This is Disney-produced, and they are well aware of all things historical, mythical and fairytale. I can't believe they'd be that careless.
Probably way off base, but here's what I think:
I have a feeling that August is actually Pinocchio ( he said to Emma: I never lie). If I remember correctly, was it not mentioned / or a viewing of an article that stated that Emma was found by a 7-yr old boy? That would have been Pinocchio's age at that time?
Maybe he hid in the magical tree casket along with Emma. Sure the episode stated at that time that it could only work on one individual. Maybe Pinocchio, being made of wood (possibly of the same tree?) was able to survive, was turned into a real boy in our reality and retained his memories?
Could be that maybe he took the book to fix any damaged pages or to add clues?
As for how Augues knew about the history of the well: there's a plaque there. He pointed it out to Emma (didn't tell a lie).
The booth character could have made a name up just to get emma to go with him. Of course regina isnt as powerful as she thinks mr. Gold does hold a vital piece of info as he knows who emma is. I think the writer will play some part in breaking the curse maybe guide emma to do it. Im ready for a few shows where regina doesnt end it in triumphant victory
Okay, I'm Canadian so maybe I'm way off base here - but isn't anyone else noting that August W. Booth has the same middle initial and last name as the man who assassinated President Lincoln? August Wayne Booth - John Wilkes Booth. Cause that was the first thing I thought of...don't ask me what the connection is though...
Regina is a terrible person. Just when I think she can't surprise me with how terrible she is, she does it again. I can't believe that SHE spraypainted the car, and then to steal the letter...WOW.
I was sorely disappointed in David, but I did understand that he was trying to not hurt people. I don't think that will be enough to keep him and Mary Margaret apart though.
Between Sidney, the late sheriff, James, and author boy, there are no shortage of good looking fellas. I'm thinking of moving to Storybrooke. My goodness.
On the book, I think Henry got the copy back, the original book must hold some power or a secret that will be revealed.
David is a lost soul he doesn't want to hurt anyone, can't get a grasp on his "marriage" probably because he isn't actually married.
Regina makes me crazy....she is so insanely evil.
Maybe its the initial AWB for Author Wrote Book. He clearly appears to be a metaplayer.
Lol on your alternate title! That was my thought too. I'm afraid if they don't do something about this soon, we might be saying 'What Happended to Once Upon A Time?' You have to like the characters to care about them, and Snowing was the center of the show and frankly what got me hooked. Now, people (including me) prefer Rumplestilskin to David! At least he still is willing to show some passion for his love ( brilliant 'Skin Deep'). But once Belle gets out of the cell, either the show is on its way to a conclusion (since Mr. Gold will change for her) or they'll do to them what they did to Snowing. They may have written themselves into too many corners.
Now Abigail and Kathryn became awesome last night. Love to see more of her and Frederick.
Kathryn was married, just not to David. She was married to Frederick and he's the gym teacher at MM school. So it explains why she has the ring, but not the right guy. How can Kathryn get into law school anyway? How would she have a degree? I agree that the roles they played in FTL are almost parellel opposites of the SB roles; great observation.
I like the idea of Katherine being holed up with belle. It would explain how she just 'diappeared'. I kind of suspected she wouldn't be able to leave, but was hoping her 'true love' would find her and keep her in storybrooke. But then if she's happy, David and Mary-Margaret could be happy and Regina doesn't want that. But they have kissed, so something else must be needed for them to break the curse. Is it not true love they're expressing up till now? How do they get true love if they don't already have it?
As for booth.....since he is able to come and go it is probable that he isn't a fairy tale character. But if not, how does he know so much? Has he been there before? If he had been Regina surely would have known. I can't wait to find out his connection, I'm already stumped.
I kept thinking that it was too easy for David and MM to find each other and be together. It was too easy for them to reclaim their "happy ending" and that this show wouldn't be able to last very long. But this episode!!! It showed just how cunning the queen really is, and just how deep the curse really runs. Of course David is weak and selfish, its all part of the curse. And Snow White, known for her virtue and virginity, would be known as a home wrecker and a tramp. Beautifully, beautifully crafted plot. Now as for August. . . I have no idea where his story is going, I'm just happy to be along for the ride!!
I really thought he would have been a descendant of the Grimm brothers or one of them. Maybe that's just a pseudonym.
That really was my first thought too. That he has something to do with the Brothers Grimm. Maybe he is not even a descendant but one of them?
Did he really change something in the book or did he simply make a copy? I thought he copied it, gave the original back to Henry but kept the copy so he could maybe get to know about everyone or how to break the spell? He certainly knows to much to just be a random stranger but I do not think that he is a fairytale character since he is free to come and leave as he pleases and not even Regina could place him.
My roommate and I were yelling at the tv that she couldn't leave the town. Storybrook Frederick is also the guy she bumped into at the school.
I wish David were more like James. Although at the same time, they had to make it difficult for Mary Margaret and David get together. I mean, it would be too easy for Katherine to leave and then let them be together. This way it'll take a lot more for them to really be in a relationship and maybe along the way we'll see James in David.
As for Katherine missing, it was either that or she'd die. Just from her conversation with Regina and how hesitant Regina was for her to leave, you knew something was coming. And as Henry has reiterated time and time again, no one leaves Storybrooke
Also, in support of my theory below, August can freely enter and exit Storybrooke, suggesting that he does not have a fairytale counterpart. We will probably see a flashback to the night she was found, if it is relevant, since that was something we didn't actually see in the storyline where Emma is put into the wardrobe and transported to the "real" world.
I think he could be the boy who found Emma on the side of the road when she was a baby and had just entered the "real" world. The boy was only seven years old, so there wouldn't be a huge age difference between the two. He might possibly know something about Emma or where she came from as a result of that night he found her, which may explain his interest in her specifically. Just a theory.
