So who's Mr. Baskin?
« on: February 10, 2010, 05:25:13 PM »
I was fully expecting there to be no such couple waiting to adobt Claire's baby.  I had thought that was all a trick by the psychic just to get Claire on a plane he knew was going to crash.

So there really was a Mrs. Baskin(sp?) waiting at that address.  Any guesses as to who her husband turns out to be, and why the sudden break-up with no warning to Claire that the adoption was off?

I KNOW!  I didn't like the direction they took that part of the story, b/c I think it trivializes the whole point of s1e10 "Raised By Another."

As for Mr. B?  Good question.

My guess, and this is totally random, but since we have the alternate time line I figure all bets are off...I am half expecting the husband to be...Ben.

I'm not expecting the flash-sideways to offer any answers to regular Lost continuity, because it's not the same reality.

Having said that, it's possible that some in the X Universe are aware of the other dimension.

Is that the sports kid that a random dad asked Miles to get in contact with, and ask if he knew that he loved him?  ???

Yeah, I too thought there was no such couple.  I thought she would knock on the door and the people would say, "what are you talking about, what baby?  We aren't adopting a baby."  The fact that there really was a couple totally threw me for a loop.

Who's Josh?

ive noticed alot that in the Bizzaro  LOST world the numbers hardly come up... the only one ive heard so far is when kate and sawyer are in the elevator with the security and the police code they said was 314 ... added up is 8 but  thats wht closest i have... maybe to jump between realities you need to change the numbers of the Valenzetti Equation....?

I don't know who he is, but he's lucky he didn't get hit by a bus.  BTW, I always thought of that episode as being Raised by An Other
