IGN - It turns out I didn't have to wait long to learn which fairytale character August is. He's the wooden puppet that became a boy who was transported to our world in the same magic wardrobe that brought Emma. Whew. It all comes together. It explains his leg twitches and pain and why he's able to come and go from Storybrooke. I like the way August's backstory weaves into the bigger picture, and I especially like that he's so closely tied to Emma. Overall, I think they nailed the interpretation of Pinocchio's story.
