Raise Him and Bring Him Back mean something else?
« on: January 18, 2009, 09:10:22 PM »
Jeff Jensen posted an interesting theory last week.

Claire tells Kate "Don't you dare bring him BACK"

Hurley informs Jack that dead Charlie told him "You are not suppose to RAISE hime."

We all assumed they are talking about Aaron, but what if they really mean John Locke. Don't bring him BACK from the dead and don"t RAISE Locke from the dead.

I liked this theory a lot. I think he may be onto something here!

Yeah I had read that too, it is an interesting theory, but at the time Hurley said that to Jack, I don't believe Locke was dead or they knew Locke was dead.

Unless Locke is pulling a Christian!

that is interesting.  So are you saying that you believe that they CAN raise locke from the dead?  maybe the 'don't bring him back' statement is more that they aren't supposed to take locke's BODY back to the island?

That works also.

You are right about Locke not being dead yet. Jack was not in full beard during that Hurley trip. He was still with Kate.

But dead Charlie could be predicting the future.

Locke has to return part of the equation.   ;)


I think Ben knew that when he turned the wheel or perhaps learned afterwards that he needs all of these folks to get back.

I think he meant raising Aaron, but it wouldn't be the first time they snookered us.

Didn't the fake psychic tell Claire "You have to raise him."  If she's dead, how's that going to play into it?

Correct he did and he told her she had to be on that flight.  I don't believe she is dead, well not yet, but, still believing she is a survivor.  If Charlie was speaking to Hurley then he could have meant the baby.  But you are correct they have played us enough times for us to say huh what?

I think we do get something about Claire this season and why, but we may not "see" her.

Oh I am so exicted!!!!!! ::)

There's that weird vibe Miles was having around her too.

Yeah, was acting odd around her, but I was not sure if that was Aaron or her?  But recalling the way Sawyer was reprimanding him about staying away from her, he could have picked up something.

queue eerie musak!

No one is stating for sure that she is dead, but it is a theory. She was  acting very weird at the end of the season, Miles was responding to her in a strange way, She left her baby in the middle of the jungle and she is hanging with dead Christian. Claire is dead is a conclusion that can be made from those statements.

I guess the stated theory could work.  I thought they were just talking about the body.

Glad we're discussing this interesting theory!

What makes it plausible is that in neither comment from Claire or Hurley do they reference Aaron's name - only "him."  Maybe Ben is telling Jack to bring Locke back to the Island because it is part of his sinister master plan somehow?  Maybe the Island doesn't want (or need) Locke back, but Ben is manipulating Jack to do so for some reason.  Claire and Charlie (through Hurley) are warning Jack and Kate.  And remember - Ben always has a plan.

Ben does always have a plan and it is usually sinister.
