Two timelines are incongruent
This has been bugging me a bit with the new timeline. It is 2004, in the days just after 815 lands in LA. If we assume that the timelines split in 1977 with the bomb blast and that they have been running alongside each other since, how can the ‘bleeding’ the memories of the people in the new timeline be of events further in the future. For example, Charlie wasn’t in love with Claire on the flight, that didn’t happen until later, so how does he ‘remember’ it on the plane? Des didn’t see Charlie die until much later, but the memories come to him only a few days after 815 lands. The same thing with Hurley and Libby. So my question is has anyone else noticed this and what do you think is going on, are the timelines misaligned, is this how the new 815ers can ‘come back’ to the island and be in 2007 while they are in 2004 and why aren’t they running parallel to each other????
