"It is crucial that you, yourself, raise this child."
« on: February 21, 2008, 11:14:24 PM »
That is the line that the fortune teller Malkin said in S1E10. We now know that this isn't going to be the case.
They go on to say:

MALKIN: This child parented by anyone else, anyone other than you -- danger surrounds this baby. . .

CLAIRE: Danger?

MALKIN: Your nature, your spirit, your goodness, must be an influence in the development of this child.

CLAIRE: If Thomas and I don't get back together I'm putting this baby up for adoption. I just wanted to find out what would give the baby the happiest life.

MALKIN: There is no happy life -- not for this child, not without you.


Thoughts?

This is starting to tell out that story finally.  I think we will see what happens to Claire very soon.

Maybe Aaron was supposed to stay on the Island, maybe he has health problems and the island could cure them, or something like that.

When Kate woke him up, he looked like he has down syndrome or something.

could just be a wierd looking kid

Maybe that lady is more than a Nanny? Maybe she is a nurse that is on call at all times for Aaron and his possible disabilities.  ???

How come everyone is so positive that Kate's child is really Aaron?  Did I miss something?

Great post, nice job bringing that stuff back! Either there was no choice (Claire is dead) or the psychic was a fake.

I had the same impression...but then maybe not. Maybe just a funny shot. Not sure at all.

I'm thinking that Claire is dead. Why? Because Des said part of his vision was seeing Claire leave the island in a copter:
S3E21-
DESMOND: What I saw, Charlie, was Claire and her baby getting into a helicopter. A helicopter that lifts off--leaves this Island.

Something must happen to her.

Most likely is, my 20 month old can say Hi Mommy, not too far fetched it's Claire's, and Jack's misgiviings...we all ready know he's going to find out  the kid is his nephew....
There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

I think Desmond lied to Charlie just to get him to turn off the jamming equipment, because he is trying to get back to Penny and he thought this was the only way.

I actually had the same thought at first - that the kid looked like he had Down's.  But I think it was just the angle of the filming.

We're at least *supposed* to think that was Claire's Aaron. He's about the right age. He's blond. He's, umm, named Aaron. :)

Plus, we also saw in this episode that Kate's taking great care NOT to get pregnant on the island. Plus plus, it would be so Lost-like to have a twist like that, don'tcha think? They don't usually dangle a twist like this and then take it away.

Aha yes, let's add to that list that Jack had odd misgivings about seeing the child. Granted, that would be true if it were Sawyer's, but I think most people would have worse misgivings in a situation like this one: Seeing Claire's baby, knowing it's Claire's, and knowing you're both hiding a big secret about what happened on that island that apparently took Claire's life.

Because when Kate was on the Island and in bed with Sawyer, she said she was sure she wasn't pregnant...
