Who brought Claudia to the Island?
« on: May 12, 2010, 05:33:51 AM »
Did Mother bring Claudia's people to the Island (because she wanted to find her own replacement)?

Or did the Island bring them (and it's Mother's job to make sure new people never find the Light Cave, and Mother saw her chance to raise her own replacements)?

Jacob told Richard he brought him to the island. Jacob told MiB he brought that boat to the island. I'm assuming that Mother brought Claudia to the island for her replacement. Jacob and MiB were candidates.

This makes sense, but I don't think we are meant to wonder about it too much.  As mother said, every answer will just lead to more questions.

I don't know about that. Ma looked kind of shocked to see someone there, and to see her pregnant. If we're operating on the idea that she and Jacob did the same stuff, then wouldn't she know that she was coming, and that she was pregnant??

Fake mother brought Claudia's ship to the island so she could get Claudia's baby for a replacement. Just like Jacob brought people to the island.

She was pregnant, ready to give birth, like Rousseau was and Claire was.
And all their babies have been raised by others.
Mother brought her to the island to get her baby. But it were 2.

I believe it's a little of both. The Island knows what it wants and somehow controls it's Keeper to bringing them to the Island. I'm sure there are theories on how Mother was brought there. She told MIB that she came to the island the same way he did. Which I assumed she was shipwrecked?

I assumed she meant by accident.

I didn't think she looked shocked at all.  She was just standing over Claudia at the pool.  Claudia had all the questions, mother didn't ask any.  She seemed relieved to finally have a possible replacement (even two) to take over for her, like she knew they were coming eventually.

But like Claudia only had a name for one kid, mother didn't expect the twin.
She was surprised that there was another one.
Than Claudia asked if she could see him and not them.
MIB was a surprise.

Well, this could be why so many of us are divided on how good of a job she did in this episode. None of us got the same feeling from what she was doing. LOL

Opie, I'm slightly lost on what you're saying here. Are you saying that Mother was expecting a woman to come pregnant with a child, and the fact that Claudia was pregnant with twins was the surprise??

Yes.
She went to get Claudia like she expected her,
but it looks like she didn't count on the second baby being there.

She was expecting Jacob.
Claudia was only there to carry him and bring him.
But she wasn't expecting the second one.
