Hurley's Deja Vu / Desmond's E.S.P.?
« on: October 18, 2006, 11:19:11 PM »
Desmond can see into the future? Locke's still obsessed with the island, and Saywer's gonna get it. Well, it all makes sense now.  ;D

Desmond--Psychic?
« Reply #1 on: October 18, 2006, 11:20:25 PM »
Des seemed to know about Locke's speech before it happened. He also was uncertain about what would happen if he used the failsafe... Is this because he's normally certain of everything?

My question: Is Desmond psychic? If so, has he been all along, or is this a new thing?

Not really esp, but he either had precognition or he was displaced in time after the hatch imploded.

I should cut and paste my responses...
He could have precognition, or he might be just have had been thrown forward/backward in time from the failsafe. Not sure, but I think it's more time travelish. Why was he naked?

Offline this is some crazy stuff

Im not so sure about anything that anyone here has said so far.  Im think and alwas have thought that Desmond is part of the others group but was wanting to help the losties get away.  Somehow he knew that Locke was gonna give a speech, Or maybe he saw what is gonna happen in the future as he turned the key.         i dont know im all confused after tonights episode.

I think thats reading too much into it, but given this island its possible
It could just be the power of the island or something

Desmond is exhibiting the same precognitive abilities that Juliet has demonstrated in the first two episodes.

I don't know that Desmond had this ability before, though (like Juliet).  He seemed a little dazed when he said that to Hurley.  I like the idea of him being displaced in time because of the implosion.  Maybe this is another explanation for where his clothes have gone? 

He wasn't listening to Locke's speech when we saw him give it though, so in real time, he didn't actually stand there to hear him say he would rescue the others. 
Interesting...

when did juliet have those abilities? is my memory just not serving me right or did i totally miss them?
also could just have been in a dream he had, its like the island is telling them everything they need in bits and pieces but they all have to come together to find out

my first impression was also along the lines of a time-travelish thing. could be something to the effect of desmond getting briefly bumped forward in time and now the rest of our losties have caught up with him.

this made much more sense in my head than it does when i type it out for the world to read.

I was thinking the same thing: When did Juliet ever do anything like Desmond, i.e. telling of an event before it happened like that?

She might be smart, intelligent, but I don't recall anything like precognition.

I just assumed Desmond got this new ability when he turned the key. That whatever strange power was in the electromagnetic properties they were controlling with the button were unleashed when he turned the key.

hahaha... too funny...

anyway, i think that the hatch "imploding" somehow caused desmond to become a new person... like somehow he was stripped psychologically (possible esp, change in character/demeanor) and literally (no clothing or belongings)... now the question is, if he does have the ability to see future events, esp or what not, can this be beneficial to our losties and how will desmond factor into the group?
