To paraphrase Jeff Jensen of www.ew.com, he said that O6 would be a media coined phrase, that reporters wouldn't care that Aaron wasn't technically on the flight manifest, but that the term sounds good.

Thank you! I have been saying this here in various posts since that episode first aired. It is the natural interpretation of the ending of that episode too -- a "reveal" of Aaron being alive and with Kate.

Sometimes folks read TOO much into every second of Lost footage.

But still there is the story of Jack in court.
The plane crashes, 8 survive. Kate saves them. 2 die.
Aaron wasn't born when the plane crashed.

For sure Kate, Sayid, Sun, Jack and Hurley are oceanic six.
But number six is still a question for me. They said that Sun was the last.

Who did we see off island in the present or ff?
Aaron - can't be one of the 8 of Jack's story.
Charlie - is dead.
Ji Yeon - wasn't born.
Ben - wasn't on the plane.
Desmond - wasn't on the plane.
Michael - has taken another identity.

So who is number six?

To quote from DarkUFO:
"I've been getting a lot of emails and seeing a lot of debate in the comments section about exactly who the Oceanic 6 are.
They are Jack, Kate, Sayid, Hurley, Sun and Aaron.
Hopefully this will end some of the debate that's been going around."

Lemme be clearer. I think it's probably Aaron too, but Opge's got a good point. Maybe the Powers just outright lied to us, in which case lots of possibilities open up. Heck, maybe it's Sawyer. I'd like to think he has a future....

I don't know. Kate called Aaron her son.
I don't have to run, I have a son now.
Keep away from my son.
etc.
It seems like it is not Claire that gave birth, according to the coverstory.

Yeah, but what would she say?

I have an adopted son now?
I don't have to run, I stole Claire's baby?
Keep away from Jack's nephew?

Oceanic 6 does not have to be "on the plane". It would be a media name. They love to name everything. 6 people are rescused.

Until I read this, i was on the side that Aaron is NOT one.  But this makes a good case for Aaron. I don't have time for podcasts - so I don't really hear/see what TPTB say so whenever you guys say that I never believe it until I would see it for myself.  I would need either a link or a place to go see it for myself...

I was trying to say, that Claire doesn't matter in the coverstory, because it is not obvious that she gave birth to Aaron. In eggtown they bring it like it is Kate's child.
Somewhere else I said that we saw Kate being married to a policeofficer, before running to Australia.
She did a pregnancytest. It was negative, but the timing could be right to say later that she was 8 months pregnant when she was arrested by Mars.
But he would have noticed. :-)

So I don't know, I just try to think logical based upon the information we have. But the information is incomplete, the gaps in between too big, important events left away and coming up later, the chronology all mixed up and uncertain and English is a foreign language for me.

I see a lot of people complaining that everything is speculation. But that is what Lost is about and what I like about it. Every new episode gives new information and makes you review all the episodes seen before, reput the events in the right order and resee your opinions and theories. It would be boring if we saw all the events in chronological order. Now we see Kate claiming to be Aaron's mother out of nothing and we have to speculate about how and why.

I know, I was just pointing out that Kate (like all adoptive parents) would think of Aaron as hers.

Heck yes, speculation is what it's all about. I don't think very many people complain about it exactly. Many of us do like to keep straight what's pure speculation, what's got a little bit of evidence behind it, and what seems to be pretty firmly grounded in the show.

If you wanted to see rampant speculation, you should have been here during the nine month wait between the end of S3 and the beginning of S4!  ;)

And your English is a whole lot better than my Dutch! Hang in there and keep 'em coming.

I disagree.  Aaron totally COULD be one of the 8 included by Jack.  Just because he wasn't yet born doesn't change the fact he was on the flight and survived the crash.  It is 100% accurate to say Aaron survived the crash of Oceanic Flight 815.

IF you paid attention to the LOST promos ABC airs before each episode, you would recall they indicated we would learn another of the O6 when Eggtown aired.  They revealed Aaron.  He IS one of the 6. 

The promo for last week indicated we would learn who the last of the O6 was.  We learned it was Sun.

So - for those paying attention - we can all stop quibbling about who the Oceanic 6 are:
Jackass, Freckles, Staypuft, Mohammed, Turnip Head, and Tokyo Rose. 

Any questions?

I think it's Aaron too, but let me play devil's advocate.

If you pay attention to the show then

Jack and Hurley were revealed as O6 in Hurley's FF.
Sayid was revealed in The Economist.
Kate was revealed in Eggtown. Before that we knew she was off the Island, but we didn't know from the show that she was O6.
Sun was revealed in Ji Yeon.

So in terms of what has been clearly stated on the show, we only have 5.

Correction.
Kate AND Aaron were shown in eggtown, so we have our 6.

I see what you're saying, but they said that we'd know who the 6 were by the end of this past epi, & since the only 6 Losties that we've seen OFF the Island in a FF includes Aaron, I see that as the simplest explanation.

I am really hoping they clearly state it on a podcast, so we can move on! lol
