Desmond coming back to the Island

After my last theory on why Ben was beat up, I’ve come to this theory on how Desmond will return to the island…

I think we all know that the Island isn’t done with Desmond. Whether he returns to avenge the death or assault of Penny by Ben we won’t know until later. But I believe he’ll be motivated to return somehow. Eventually he will return to the locating station and find out his ‘window’ of return to the island. The O6 had their own ‘window’ they had to fly through. Desmond will have his own ‘window’, but he’ll have to SAIL through it. Remember, he reaches the island by boat. Now he must do this alone to replicate the circumstances he was in when he first landed on the island. Does he go alone and leave Penny safe from Ben’s wrath? Or is he alone because Penny is dead? Or maybe he brings Penny’s dead body on the Island to ‘resurrect’ her like John Locke and Christian Shepard? (thanks Rhino) Or maybe Penny and their son, Charlie, go with him? I would bet that’s how Desmond comes back. Any takers? LOL.

I have been a fan of J.J. Abrams work since ALIAS (not the last 2 seasons of it though). So it was no surprise that I got hooked on LOST the moment it hit television. Favorite characters: Hurley, Desmond, and Sawyer.

  1. Haha love loonies. (I’m pretty sure it’s loonie not loony).

    If Desmond returns it will be sailing alone, no questions asked.

    How Penny will return though, that’s another story, as it is clear she has been on the island before and wants to go back.

  2. Pennies, Loonies… I stand corrected (and humbled) that you know my denominations better than I do. Well done!

    I hope that if they do kill Penny Desmond will bring her back and she will be ressurected.

  3. No, you missed nothing Emzi, unless I and as far as I can tell everyone else did. I have seen nothing revealing that about Penny at all..unless I did miss something

  4. Maybe he IS back – and flipped back to ’74 where Charlie will age from (of course, that ignores his brother … )

    Would Ben have known Penny could return to the island – could that be why he went back, too … because that sweet kill-daughter revenge isn’t something he’d have given up so easily.
