Claire and Aaron

Most of us assume Claire died, and was “claimed” or “infected.”

She feverently wants her baby back (I always think of the Chili’s “I want my baby back, baby back…” song when I type that). Why?

I mean, duh, it’s her baby. But, she calmly left the baby in the first place, she didn’t seem concerned back when she was with Christian in the cabin, and she’s not OLD Claire, she’s been changed. Why is the baby so important…

I have two theories:

  1. (25%) At first, she was with Christian Shephard, and Christian was an agent of Jacob (as he claimed at times). Christian calmed her, assured her it was okay for the baby to be with the Losties (or Others), but then after some sort of falling out, Claire sided with Smokey and now feels that is no longer acceptable.
  2. (75%) Claire is possessed by an entity who has a connection to the ENTITY WHO POSSESSED AARON! Yes, baby Aaron did die on the island, only to be claimed when Jin gave Claire the urchin. Infected Claire wants the infected baby back.

In all honesty, I don’t particularly believe either of these, but it’s a “whoa, maybe…” kind of thing.

Some thoughts and theories (spoiler-free)

Posted in Observations, Some wonderings I don't really believe, Theories with tags , , , , , on February 11, 2010 by Scott Copperman

I’m not sure that this is the route things will go, but here’e are some ideas I have about what MIGHT be going on in LOST.

  1. A body being “claimed” or “infected” is something like what Smith does to programs in the second movie of the Matrix trilogy. The idea would be that the smoke monster is a consciousness capable of embodying multiple forms at one one time. It is one theory that explains how both Christian Shephard and Claire could be in the cabin at the same time, and one that allows for Smokey to be attempting to take over Sayid’s body at the same time as he is in Locke’s.
  2. There are multiple entities on the island looking to claim new bodies. Are these disembodied spirits the whispers?  Are two of them Adam and Eve? In this theory, Christian Shephard and Claire have been claimed/possessed by different souls, possibly neither of them being the smoke monster.  Or, it’s possible that the smoke monster is a collective of consciousnesses. Each identity within the smoke monster collective is capable of posessing a body at some time.
  3. The vaccinations Claire was taking and the drugs she was given by Ethan could come back to play some role in her fate on the island.
