It sounds like Emma’s love life is about to get complicated because Eion Bailey will be making a return to Storybrooke in Once Upon a Time.
Entertainment Weekly has confirmed the news that August Booth, aka the puppet-turned-real-boy-turned-grown-man-turned-puppet-turned-real-boy will make his return to the show when it returns for the second half of the season.
According to the site, August will make his return in episode 14, “Enter the Dragon.”
August was last seen adding pages to the Book of Fairytales and now that Regina and Rumple are now searching for The Author, it makes the most sense that we’d see him in some form of flashback.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, March 1 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
