From ouat.roneyzone.com, the home of the Once Upon a Time Fan Podcast blog… a great comment that may (or may not) shed more light on who August W. Booth/The Stranger really is and why he’s in Storybrooke. Props to this guy for making the connection! Here is the link to his post mentioned in the comment.
This is another thing I love about OUAT. That things are placed there for a reason and they will help with discovering the bigger part of the plot. Oh gosh, reading these blogs, theories and analyses makes me love this show more and more.
