This morning I posted a message on Twitter that kind of got more attention than what I thought it would. The message I posted was:

Whilst I was on the set yesterday, a member of the crew got talking to a group of us and told us that “We might not get to see August Wayne Booth again”. They were done with him. Apparently Eion Bailey didn’t gel well with the rest of the cast when they were on locations.
But, I’m not sure how this crew member could say that. Surely we still need Pinocchio in the show. He is an integral part of Emma’s story. The last time we saw him was in episode six, “Tallahassee”, when he showed Neal Cassidy a box containing something that made him leave a pregnant Emma Swan alone until she had broken the curse. Obviously he’s still alive somewhere because he sent the postcard to Neal in the first episode of the second season.
This crew member can’t possibly know what Co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have in store for August. That would be crazy. He is such a fan favourite that killing him off would, judging by the reaction to my tweet this morning, be a seriously bad mistake.
We’ll have to wait and see. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
