I had a thought about Jacob going back and touching some of the survivors, the other day, at midnight in the shower.
(thats the only time i get to think about these things!)...i keep forgetting to post though...
Is it possible that they will succeed in having their plane never crash, but instead of "none of this every happening" and kate, sawyer, jack etc not remembering each other, that Jacob, through touching each person, gave them the gift of knowledge, of remembering each other and their time on the island.....the other passengers will get off the plane none the wiser, but our friends will know they have been given a second chance, and what they do with it (how they choose to live their lives) is now up to them.
Well...it seemed like a huge epiphany when i had the thought.
About Claire and Aaron, i've recorded that episode so i'll reserve my thoughts until i've watched it, but it sounds spooky. I dont remember too much about the original episode even though i know i've seen it. I've wondered why in the beginning of the series they made a huge point about walt being "special", aaron being "special" but then they seemed to sort of drop that storyline.
