Storybrooke: August is Pinocchio and spends his time trying to prove to Emma that she is the savior, but she can’t even deal, because she’s spending her time prepping for a custody battle, or a kidnapping. Whichever. For the sake of all the Enchanted Forestians, I sure hope it’s not her judgment that is supposed to save them. August goes so far as to take Emma to the spot where he “found” her, when they were transported from the Enchanted Forest to Our World. He also shows her how he’s starting to revert to his not-as-real boy wooden self, but Emma is so deep in denial that she cannot see it. She doesn’t want to be the savior and tells August that if she is, everyone is screwed. Meanwhile, Regina puts the moves on David and even cooks him lasagna, but he’s a two-woman man, and she’s not one of his two.
Enchanted Forest: August is Pinocchio. Yeah, that’s about it. Well, there is a little more. When the Blue Fairy commissions the Savior-saving wardrobe from Geppetto, she means it to save two people. Geppetto’s down with that, provided his recently real real-boy son is one of those two. Blue resists at first, but finally agrees. And then she basically lies to Snow and Charming’s war council that it can only save one. I’m glad none of her body parts grow when she forsakes the truth. I mean, how much strain can one corset withstand, even if it’s magical?
I’ll be back with the whole story, in the full recap. In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where there are no strings on me.
