…the island gets. First of all I want to apologize to all of you (especially you, Doc) for my lack of presence here over the past month. Life has thrown many a curve ball my way, one of them being a job change, and this has made it necessary for me to tone down my fanaticism for a little while. That being said, I’m back to deliver some speculation and good old fashion theorizing.
After dissecting this episode, I now have even more ammunition to back up my initial theory regarding the importance (or savior qualities) of Aaron. See my first madcap theory about Aaron here. Now, Charlie visits Hurley and asks him to relay a message to Jack. That message is: “You (Jack) aren’t supposed to raise him (Aaron).” Jack, feeling the guilt of knowing that Hurley is right, begins his downward spiral. Let me now pause and back up to Season 1.
Since the beginning of Claire and Aaron‘s story, we have known that Aaron must not be raised by anyone other than Claire. And now Claire is being drawn, by “Christian (daddy),” to remain on the island. Perhaps she is being ushered to safety from a coming storm, or being led to understanding why Aaron is so important, either way, Claire is definitely on a journey of discovery. And what she finds will be of the utmost importance to the future of Lost. And I feel that this revelation will have everything to do with her and Aaron. The mistake that Sawyer and the rest of the Oceanic survivors will make is taking Aaron off the island without Claire. My guess is that we will at some point this season be seeing Claire attempting to stop our O6 from taking him, but they will convince her that this is the best way. But we all know he is supposed to stay with Claire. He is special to the island. Aaron may even be the island’s savior. In our flash-forward future, the island’s intention is to bring Aaron back…no matter what. This is why the island is making life for the O6 a living hell, so that they will return with Aaron.
I would go out on a limb and say that Aaron is the key to something very significant about the island. Perhaps it’s very survival.
Madcap or plausible…you tell me.
