geppetto pinocchio ouat 'Once Upon a Time': 'The Stranger' first look photosWarning: These some pretty juicy photos and details from an upcoming episode of “Once Upon a Time,” so don’t keep reading if you don’t want to be spoiled.

“Once Upon a Time” comes back with all new episodes starting April 22 with “The Return” – those photos and details can be found here. But on April 29, we finally get the backstory of the Stranger.

Those of you who were thinking he must be Pinocchio – it looks like you may be right, as that is the story being told in the Fairytale Land half of the episode. Meanwhile, in Storybrooke, August (The Stranger) and Emma are working together (and dare we hope for some romantic sparks), while Regina seems to be making a play for David.

The full episode description:

“The Stranger” – “August promises to enlighten Emma and take her on a journey that will show her how she can beat Regina, and possibly take custody of Henry; and with Mary Margaret returning to work, Regina puts a plan in motion to seduce David. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, with the Evil Queen’s curse about to strike, Geppetto agrees to a plan that will save Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter, but with a proviso that could also save his own son.”

We cannot wait to see what is in store leading up to the season finale. “Once Upon a Time” airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
