“It’ll come back round again” – Sawyer’s fate

Written 24th February

As I predicted in my theory, Sawyer has aligned himself with MIB…however, I’ve predicted that he is running a long con…he will pay for it for his life, though, I think.

Remember the episode in season 1 where Sawyer shot the wrong man, Frank Duckett?

As he was dying he said:

“It’ll come back round again”

Not only is this more evidence of a loop, I think it has ambiguous meaning now…I think it either means that Sawyer will be faced with this situation again, but won’t put the trigger…or, more likely, Sawyer will be the victim of a similar situation…if it is the latter, here’s how it will happen.

Sawyer, on that particular occasion was the man conned in to killing the wrong man…I think, by seemingly aligning himself with the MIB, he’s going to put himself in the firing line…he’ll be running a long con and trying to do over MIB, but, after Sayid becomes ‘infected’, which i think will happen, panic will set in and the Losties won’t know who to trust…there will be a point where Sawyer is close to executing his plan to screw over MIB, but will be the victim of a bullet from one of our Losties who think he has also been infected…will be either Kate or Jack to do the deed, I reckon…or, MIB, a master manipulator himself, will know what he’s up to, and kill him…

Thoughts?

  1. I believe Sawyer will end up sacrificing himself to save either Kate or Jack. We have seen him grow as a person since season 1 and what better way for his character to die than to die to save another. Of course I have no evidence of this just a feeling that things are gonna get bad for the remaining losties.That is if he dies.We already have seen him do something similar when he juped from the helicopter to lighten the load.

  2. Can I just start by saying that every theorist on this website should be a writer for the show. Even if what everyone suggests doesn’t come to fruition, they’re all very possible story arcs and bloody entertaining reads.

    I completely agree with Sawyer doing the long con but agree it’ll end up with him having to make a sacrifice, which is why I’m convinced that Locke, Jack and Sawyer will be ultimately the three it boils down to at the end.

    @ForeverPuzzled: I’m not entirely sure he did that to save the others on the helicopter though. I always saw it as Sawyer running away from the responsibilities of the ‘real-world’. Again, this is purely speculation.

  3. Was watching season 2 episode 9 last night…the episode was ‘What Kate Did’…a pretty poor episode – what Kate-centric episodes aren’t – but one thing i did notice that ties in both with this particular theory and my theory on the time loop…

    As Kate is watching over Sawyer while he’s unconscious, he grabs Kate by the neck and asks:

    “Why did you kill me?”

    Kate thought it was Wayne – her father – that she was talking to…I originally thought this was a silly story device but now i think I know what it was…

    Any time we’ve seen some of our Losties experience Deja Vu, or waking up from unconsciousness, often they say something that doesn’t make sense or is incoherent…but since we’re now know that there has been time travel, floating consciousness’ through time etc, I think i know what is going on…

    In Season 1 – after fisticuffs with Ethan – Jack is unconscious…Kate wakes him up…as Jack is coming to, he runs off in to the jungle saying:

    “I’m not letting him do this – not again”.

    Time Loop…this happened before…you think Jack is just mumbling incoherently, but i think this is where our Losties are perhaps most aware of the previous time loops…

    When Charlotte is dying, and between places, she remembers things about her childhood, and her consciousness seems to be floating as she’s talking like when she was a 5 year old…

    Juliet, before slipping in to unconsciousness, becomes aware of her life in the other reality…

    We’ve seen the things Desmond has experienced etc…

    Anyway, with the Sawyer thing…what happened is this…as he awoke with his unconsciousness, he has momentarily become aware of something that happened on the previous iterations of the loop…quite like Jack in season 1 after the Ethan fight…when he asks Kate why she killed him, it is because she is the one who kills him as this story unfolds…we’ve yet to see that happen yet on this iteration of the loop…Kate will be the one to kill Sawyer, I reckon…it’s likely to be because he’s infected or she’s infected…this will be Sawyer’s fate…and is yet more evidence of a loop.

  4. hey theresafallsupthestairs; I see where you can say that Sawyer was running away from the real world, mainly because the woman Kate was talikng to(Sawyers con) said that very thing. At the time Lakedas was saying they needed to drop more weight. Sure you could say that’s his cue to run but he could have just simply not gotten on the helicopter in the first place,if it was an issue of not going back to the real world. I don’t ever remember seeing Sawyer run away. After all he was the one who stood his ground and shot the charging polar bear.I think we were given that impression because the woman had been hurt by Sawyers actions.He just does’nt seem like the kind of person to run from anything.But I agree he did’nt do it to save the others I think he did it to save Kate.

  5. OMG all i needed to do was to read the title and it all made sense.
    Yeah i reckon it’ll be Kate, convinced he’s something he’s not ie. infected.
    The answers lie in Season One.
    Starting to think that it may be Sun and Jin as Adam and Eve.
    Or possibly Jack and Kate

  6. My previous post:

    “When he asks Kate why she killed him, it is because she is the one who kills him as this story unfolds…we’ve yet to see that happen yet on this iteration of the loop…Kate will be the one to kill Sawyer, I reckon…it’s likely to be because he’s infected or she’s infected…this will be Sawyer’s fate…and is yet more evidence of a loop.”

    Update – Kate may kill Sawyer in the alternate reality as opposed to being on a loop from this reality…who knows?

  7. With three episodes left I wonder if the writers have the screen time to go back and reference all those moments? I think they will leave the Wayne reference as is, but ‘wouldn’t it be nice’ is a fun game to play at this juncture (as well as a nifty Beach Boys song)
