Desmond and those flashes
My original theory, ‘This was supposed to happen’, states that I think Desmond was always supposed to save Charlie, and that his task was to earn Charlies trust so that eventually Desmond would convince Charlie that his fate is to die at the Looking Glass.
After furthur thought, I have thought of new twist to put to this theory.
Alot of people are saying that Desmonds latest flash mustn’t be true because we never actually saw what happened, but with the other flashes we did.
Actually, we never did see any of the other flashes Desmond had (apart from the one where Charlie gets an arrow in his neck)’ we never saw Charlie drowning after he saves Claire, we never see him get electrocuted, we never see him drown after getting that bird etc.
This leads me to a possibility that maybe Desmond never actually saw Charlie die in any of those flashes. It’s possible that Desmond just saw Claire drowning with no one coming to help her (which is why he helped her), it’s possible that he just saw the lightning hit the ground and he knew exactly where it would hit, and it’s possible that Desmond knew where the bird would be’
Could it be that Desmond never saw Charlie in any of these flashes, but somehow he knew about the Looking Glass and knew it was Charlies fate to go down there, so he lied to Charlie to earn his trust?
The only flash we saw of Charlie actually dieing was the one where he got an arrow in his neck’ and that only happened because Desmond pursuaded him to go on the ‘save penny’ mission.
If Desmond wanted to ‘save his life this time’, wouldn’t he have just told Charlie to stay at the beach?
I know I know, people think that Desmond needed it to happen the way it was supposed to’ BUT, I think that this time he asked Charlie to come so that he could save Charlies life physically, so that Charlie would believe that those previous times that Desmond had saved his life.
When actually, we don’t know if that’s true.
I still think that Charlie was supposed to go the Looking Glass all along, and I still think that Desmond was set a task (whether or not he knows about it) to get Charlie to the Looking Glass. Therefore lieing to him about saving his life was just a ploy to get him there.
Whether this theory is true, or my original – I still believe that Charlie is never meant to die.
I just thought I’d add a twist to my original theory ‘This was supposed to happen’. Let me know what you think 🙂
