Title: nose bleeds
Post by: taki1379 on January 29, 2009, 09:40:42 PM
I'm curious as to why Charlotte's nose was bleeding. I remember in Season 4 episode Locke had a vision of Horace in the forest cutting down trees. Horace's nose started to bleed. Any theories or connections here?

Horace had a bloody nose when Ben found him dead on the bench after the Purge, but time travel would be a more likely cause for both of them.  Horace seemed to be caught in a loop when he met John.  Charlotte perhaps has no constant.

horace wasn't alive, he was just a dream that the island gave to locke. the real horace died in the purge

let me clarify my original post. i know that horace was a vision. i want to know the connection with nose bleeds. horace's nose had a stream of blood coming from it just as charlottes did with faraday freaked out.  everything happens for a reason on LOST. so what is the reason for the nose bleed?

Time travel trauma. The same as what Desmond suffered without his Constant. The same as the boat crew who strayed into the island's influence.

if you were born while in a time shift, you will not suffer nosebleeds when in a time shift, otherwise time shift trauma causes the nosebleeds

as Daniel determined, a contsant provides a solution to the condition causing the nosebleed

that was my theory by the way, it may not hold up based on whats already been revealed on the show
