The role of Desmond next season
I was watching the first episode of Season 5 the other day, and I have thought of what Desmond’s role will be next season in Season 6.
When he and Daniel meet at the hatch before a ‘flash’, Daniel tells Desmond that he is the only one that can save them, and that the rules do not apply to him. I couldn’t figure this out, as Desmond didn’t play a major part in Season 5. Now I know what he could do next season.
If there are two timelines next season, which is what is believed, then this could work.
When the noise of a coming flash sounded and the sky started to light up, not only did Daniel look around him curiously, SO DID DESMOND!
This means that Desmond can think even when in another time. He even remembered that happening in the present, when he was off the island, although he called it a dream.
What I believe Desmond’s role will be next season, will be bringing the two proposed timelines together. What this means is bringing the Losties who left, back to the island after they went back to 2004 and arrived at LA X.
Why can he do this? Because as said, the rules don’t apply to him. He can freely move AND think in other times, unlike everyone else, which are the rules.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, and I hope you are looking forward to Season 6 of Lost as much as I am
