Bearer of the crown
Well, I just wrote out a theor for about 25 minutes, my computer downloaded an update and restarted, so your getting the short version now. Feel free to ask questions although it is debatable after reading if it belongs in the Fun or Theories category. Here goes..
I wrote a theory including this before, that led me into this one and by rereading the original (lost theories LT site long ago) led me to something bigger I think.
Some quick footnotes:
1) Benjamin Linus can travel through time. Maybe, once maybe more who knows.
2) Benjamin Linus looks very much like Thomas, Claires ex, Arrons Father. ( I know and i dont think Thomas is Bens son….this is much worse)
3) We know Aaron was seperated from Claire, Claire being still on island.
4) The title of the previous episode was called “the little prince”. I know literary referances, yadda yadda, I think it is more than that. I think maybe the producers are pulling the old “Frozen Donkey Wheel” gag on us again, and Aaron is, in a way a prince. But what on Lost, could that reference, that deserves such an title, ah yes king of the others, or leader at least. So maybe in my mind, and hopefully you’ll at least think about it, Ben went back in time, changed identities, and helped Claire out with the conceiving of Arron. Of course after a needed period of adjustment, under an alias, think fake passports. We know Ben knows how to time travel, or how else would he know wht year it was when he landed in the sahara. And he has the patients of an immortal being, not saying he is one.
I know, theres room for a lot of hot air in this theory, allow me to fill in at least some of that with fact. Under what circumstances would a person be lagally allowed to go after another and say that their child is not theirs. Ah yes, a grandmother. I was so excited. I called it from a mile away. The way she talked to Jack at that funeral, a mothers (or grandmothers intiuition in this case). HA, I nailed it! BUZZ! wrong, i was so off. She had no idea. She didnt even know who Aaron was. Lying maybe, but a hell of a liar and a weak ass storyline if thats the case.
Now, who was it that was actually behind this…? Ah yes, the biggest trickster, Mr Linus. Yes, the lawyer could have been an actor, or just one of Bens men, but again, I think thats too thin for Lost.
So again, how would one be legally able to do such a thing, at what explanation? What if she didnt run, what if they would have caught Aaron and tested his blood with Kates, we know the answer. But what if they tested it with Bens, would it match, could it? Does this even have a shot at being true, or am I just storytelling again. I guess will see what the princes role is and his origin, or maybe there is no prince. Maybe it was someone else. Maybe..
