Why Aaron is special
OK, here is one of my last theories for Lost. It’s bittersweet that it’s going to end. One of the best things about this series was thinking about theories for all the mysteries. I will miss that as well as the characters we all know and love.
Now, to my theory. I think that Aaron is special because he is the first baby born in the island in many years. Jacob could have taken him as his replacement, killing Claire in the process, just like mom did two thousand years ago. Instead Jacob decided to eliminate him from the list of candidates, so he can have a normal and happy life and is not condemned like Jacob was. Instead Jacob selects other candidates. Flawed and lost people that didn’t have much too miss from their lives.
So Aaron was the most likely candidate, as he was born in island and that’s why he’s special. Jacob felt sorry for Aaron as he reminded him of his own life. Also, MIB seems to feel empathy for Aaron as both had a crazy mom.
That’s all the mystery about Aaron. He is not from the future or stuff like that. A bit underwhelming? Probably. We all made so many complex theories and in the end almost all of them ended up having pretty simple anwers. At least there are no aliens!
