Desmond & Jack in the Stadium
I just wrote a post about Jack and his specialness and me thinking that Jack isn’t such a special doctor in the alt timeline.
It only just occurred to me that in “Man of Science, Man of Faith”, Desmond met Jack in the stadium JUST before we find out that Jack had actually miraculously fixed Sarah.
Desmond says he was almost a doctor.
Desmond touches Jack in this scene as well.
We don’t know anything about Desmond’s upbringing, as someone pointed out in a post the other day, commenting on the fact that we have seen flashbacks of childhood or the parents of most of the main Losties except for Desmond.
I have read lots of theories now regarding Desmond but none mentioning the fact (sorry if you have, I have missed it if so!) that he touched Jack before Jack fixed Sarah, and that we don’t know anything about Desmond’s childhood or parents. Any thoughts?
