It's gotten to the point that You can't talk about the timeline of this show without a blackboard on hand.

I seriously had charts made up that show how what I like to call "The River of Time" works and how it only flows one way no matter where you are on the river.

And how you can leave the river at one point, walk back upstream, and enter it at an earlier point?

rose and bernard were NOT in the 1970's before their plane crashed to themselves.

their story was: 2004/5 - 1970

to the others it was: 1970 - 2004/5

Right, but 1970 only occurs once. It didn't occur for the others, then reoccur again when Rose and Bernard entered it. Because an event happened in 1970, it always happened, even if Rose and Bernard didn't remember doing it yet.

Confused yet? :D :D :D

How did Jack, Kate, and all their friends do it with time?

ef my life.

Yes, it is true that the little kid versions of the time travelers that exist in 1977 will always grow up to come to the island and go back in time.

But it only happens once because 1970 only happens once.

See you're confused because you're thinking in a circular reasoning type theory. Drop that.

Time moves in one direction. Old Rose was there in 1970, then dies. Young Rose grows up, goes to the island and disappears. From an outside observer, time is linear. There is no eternal loop. There is only one Rose.
