palm reader, mind bending motives?
ive been wacthing the first episodes again, as i havent watched them since they first hit the oggle box.
and it was rally god to watch it, the hindsight aspect was very intriguing!
but to my point. when claire visits the palm reading and he gets spooked and cannot carry one. we later find out that he saw something that meant claire had to protect her baby and so on and soforth
my only quam with it all, was when he told claire he had got a suitable couple in america to take her baby, and that she HAD to get the flight, ” it must be that flight!” (816)
this leads me to think say for instance, the palm reader did have a suitable couple, why would she HAVE to get THAT flight? its not as if they were only going to meet her off that flight or they were going to spontaneaously combust or anything.
so, we can assume the palm reader perhaps knew that she had to get on that flight, for some reason. did he know about the plane crash?
hark back to the newest series, and elouis hawking said to the lost crew, “it must be that flight”, which is the same thing the palm reader suggested.
now, moving onto jacob, we saw him visit the lost crew as youngsters and in present.
is it possible, jacob was grooming claire as well, did jacob pay any amount of money to claries boyfriend to leave claire, inturn making her go back to the palm reader and take the flight?
the mind boggles…..(agaain)
ps. thank you teresa you made me think of ths with your ‘grooming’ phrase!
