Where is Des' hatch partner?
« on: January 22, 2009, 03:46:13 PM »
Des stopped wearing the suit when Mr Krabbs died(forgot his name, the guy who trained Sayid to torture) right. So if Des is wearing a suit to protect him self from the quarantined island, then his partner is still around. If he was in the hatch wouldn't he ask who was at the back door? So he must be out fixing Des' boat. Will we see him running around the island later?

Maybe Kelvin was out mapping the island when Daniel and crew showed up, so he was wearing it because he hadn't discovered that Kelvin was lying to him yet.

I would say Kelvin was dead already (when Des forgot to press the button and Flight 815 crash because of him). When the time skipped the little Plane was in the trees, and when it skipped back it was on the ground upside down (Because of Boone)

So Kelvin was never alive when survivors of flight 815 was on the island

Maybe he was hoping it was his replacement, Kelvin was dead, and he figured if it was his replacement he would give the same story as kelvin about contamination/sickness and then sneak away later.

Right, I totally missed that. The first thing Desmond asks Daniel is, "Are you him?? Are you my replacement??" Never put it together that Kelvin was already dead for that.

Then maybe Desmond wore it as a general precaution.

Except during this time frame, we never saw the plane. I'm not sure when it was, but I'm saying before O815 crashed.

Maybe he was hoping it was his replacement, Kelvin was dead, and he figured if it was his replacement he would give the same story as kelvin about contamination/sickness and then sneak away later.
Although this is also an excellent idea.

Yep, that was my point, Jun' Ott....that's all...he is dead in the real time, now...or yesterday...or then....(paraphrasing PL here, hehehehe) When ever, he is dead...unless/until "until the island jumps to a time when he is still alive....."


but he is something....will not bring it up again....

If they show him alive again, then it will have to be before Desmond killed him, which as far as I'm concerned, doesn't make him alive.

And right with the theory that things can't be changed.  Although I feel like they are on thin ice with that.  Hasn't time already changed with Daniel giving Desmond the memory of meeting him and sending him to Mom in Oxford?  I don't get how the record spins - but I sure do like it.  :)
