Amy…Am I wrong?
Ok, heres the deal. Im giving an opportunity to change my mind on something…I am already halfway there. There has been some good discussion on the site over whether or not there is ability to change something in the past or whether it had already happened that way and this was just a part of it. I like to word that second part that way, because it is how I had to think of it instead of the past cannot be changed…zoomed out a little further to accept others ideas. I am an open minded person and tried to give way for a different perspective. I along with Dabs, has been in discussion with username, highbrow and pjk on this particular subject. They are good theorists and think in realistic terms and can be very convincing…and I am not easily swayed.
But a combination of their insight and something I have been thinking since watching LaFleur, may change my perspective…at least alittle.
I stand beside Desmond being able to change things, I feel Daniel is capable as well. Examples given upon request. What I feel differently toward though, is the Amy situation. When “Lafleur” ( I hate calling him that) saved Amy from whatever was going to happen, I felt he saved her life. Some feel they bagged her to take her away. My biggest rebuttal was 1) Richard didnt seem to know of this, so where else would they be taking her. 2) Why would they bag an unarmed woman, then point a gun at her forehead as they did, if she was blindfolded. I like to use the words “motive of movement” maybe for a general prosecution. But they persisted to argue other reasons that I was incorrect (very mannerly and respectful i might add). Then the one thing that I myself had thought of during the episode entered my head again. And during one of my comments i said,
“‘So pretty much you are saying that this season is just one big season long flashback of pre 815, and the O6 return, yes?”
And remembered someone… “Amelia”
Went back and watched the part with her and Juliet from a mobisode.
Very similar in height and appearance. Same type of demeanor (i know, compare though), Same type of hairstyle.
If Amy is Amelia, then she did not die the first time, because we saaw her old.
I could be very wrong in speculating and assuming this, but then what was Amelias Signifigance?
Why her of all people would Juliet show the folder to? Could she have remembered Juliet from her past, and befriend her because of it? Could this be why Juliet was brought to the island to begin with? Why she was choosen for this research. Because maybe she was the last successful deliverer of a child on the island.
I know there are many people who seem to resemble and hold the same name as others, but this is more peculuiar and odd to me. Granted she would have been Dharma in the 70s and Others in the 90s or 2000s but that led me back to the original discussion.
If they were not going to kill Amy, Where were they taking her? Could it have been an others con/inside (wo)man, as Ben was, that helped with the purge down the road. I have speculated that Widmore jumped ship to the Dharma, as Ben jumped ship to the Others. It would make sense if that were true, due to the battle between Ben and Widmore.
Maybe there are other traders in the mix and she was one of them. I am still leaning the other way, but maybe this can be used to help me look out a different window.
Like many episodes of Lost, they show us what happened in another time, all the while leading us to believe it as a different one. Whether present past or future, done to make you understand what is to come. maybe this is one of those times. Maybe this is just a season long flashback. Help me make my decision.
