Many of us have been speculating who The Stranger (Eion Bailey) is that just drove up on his motorcycle into Storybrooke. During a conversation between him and Emma Swan (Jennifer Goodwin) he revealed his character’s name to be August W. Booth.
With that being said, what else can we make of his name?
At first, we assumed The Stranger was going to be playing the big bad wolf in Fairy Tale Land. Now, we are not so sure. With the name August W. Booth, what have we learned so far?
We know August is a slick fellow and certainly has some tricks up his sleeves. We can make this assumption because he took some pages out of Henry’s storybook.
So let us break down a little more about him. He rides a motorcycle, could this be a metaphor for a horse? He wears dark clothes like the dark knight. The bandana is purple, which is the color of royalty.
Now the name… Booth is a surname for temporary shelter such as a stable or barn. August has been known to mean lordly or venerated. August could also mean great or very important. Could this be a prince or king in future episodes? Then the W, could this be a symbol for wolf?
These are our Once Upon a Time theories. What have you come up with?
