SEASON 6 - Speculation and Theories

When she told him that, he didnt do anything afterwards that regarded the island at all. He was told the night that she told the oceanic people how to return. Desmond hasnt had a story since then except a flashback to show that he kicked Ben's ass.
She doesn't know JACK **** beyond what that journal told her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, that's a guess on my part but still ...

Anyway, I have a new theory as to why Jacob touched Sun, Jin, Sawyer, Jack, Kate, and Sayid at various points in their past.
I think the future WILL be reset because of what happened in The Incident ... but all the people Jacob touched will remember the alternate timeline and realize things are more jacked up now than if they hadn't changed the past. Mainly because having an alternate timeline is pointless in fiction unless at least one person has an idea that things have changed so I think this is how they're going to accomplish this.

I think they're going to turn out to be Rose and Bernard from the 70s.

I'm entertaining the idea Jacob wasn't able to travel away from the island until after his murder. Perhaps Smokey is unkillable in a similar manner and thus unable to be freed in such a way. So, while the Losties' time-jumping was uncontrollable, his is quite intentional -- and, perhaps, like Smokey's "loophole," is a kind of self-fulfilling event, revisitting them in their lives.

My belief is the pool, before becoming tainted, was a source of healing that came from Jacob's powers. When you're healed, like Richard says, it changes you, causes you to lose your innocence. While they haven't elaborated on what exactly this means, I think that's basically the price you pay to be healed by Jacob. This is what happened to Ben. Likewise I think Smokey has the same ability to heal. The price however is much different, its infection. If you're healed by him, his darkness eventually consumes you. You don't become him per se, you're just corrupted and become his servant, kinda like Star Wars and how the dark side can corrupt a good person (Anakin/Vader).
How that correlates to Claire, I think she was injured far worse than we originally saw when her house was blown up. I also believe Smokey was there (she calls Charlie's name when Sawyer finds her, and later speaks of not "seeing things anymore" when Sawyer asks how she's feeling). It took that opportunity to heal her and infect her then and there. That's why Miles was getting a strange vibe from her later. He obviously didn't know what it was, but my guess is he could sense the darkness in her, and whether he consciously realized it or not, that's why he offered to hold Aaron; he was instinctively wanting to protect the baby. She's still acting normal at this point, but it takes some time to spread. That in turn is why Christian approaches her later (provided Smokey is Christian). This is him literally now as well as figuratively claiming Claire.
As far as Sayid goes, he was infected in the pool. No one realized it at the time since such a thing has never happened before, but Jacob's death nullified the pools original powers. The source is gone so the power is gone. But MIB remains and in Jacob's stead, MIB now fuels the power to the pool, hence its becoming literally darkened. Sayid is healed, but by MIB's methods, not Jacob's, and thus he is infected as that is the price of Smokey's brand of healing.

I have reason to believe that Desmond is the key to fixing everything.
This is looking all the more likely to me. Desmond may ultimately connect the two timelines and put everything back on course.
They made a point to have him appear on 815 - not a big deal in itself when you consider that if the island doesn't exist, his past/present/future will completely change (so who's to say he's not just going on a trip?). But then they made a point of him suddenly disappearing, indicating that he hadn't just "gone back to his seat". Perhaps Desmond, being the exception to the rule, is able not just to travel back/forward in time, but also between timelines? He may have been on the flight in order to return to the island in the original timeline as this was the only way. Note that he pretty much disappears at the moment the plane is meant to be pulled apart in the original line, much in the way that the Ajira passengers didn't so much as crash back on the island as they were simply "transported" back to it. Basically I think there's a good chance we could see a Desmond-centric where he starts jumping out of his happy existence and into a past where Penny doesn't exist, thus realizing he needs to stop the new timeline becoming reality.

But I will say this. While no one can be certain what particular outs and resolutions the writers will take, I think I'm already somewhat disappointed with what this is leading up to. In the first year and a half when I watched this show religiously, I always sort of assumed that the explanation for everything would be something that would be simple and relevant. I thought it would be something that would make total sense in a "why didn't I think of that" sort of way. But within the past two seasons, this one especially, it seems that the writers are overly concerned with maintaining a vast mythology that they can create explanations out of. Considering all of the buildup, and specifically considering the episode solely focusing on MiB and Jacob, it's pretty clear that the end will be some spin on this invented mythology. They would just be digging themselves out of the hole they made for themselves. Which may be an elegant way of ending it, but for me would be completely unsatisfying.
Though I guess the most accurate prediction you can make about the finale is that there will be a lot of people unhappy with it no matter the direction it takes.

Jack tells Jacob there is nothing beyond the bamboo, but Jacob tells him there is.
Flash back to the Pilot, with Jack waking up in the bamboo, with or without the baton, and when Jack runs to the beach, instead of looking to his left, toward the wreckage, Jack FIRST looks to his right, away from the wreckage, perhaps looking for what is beyond the bamboo.
So, this is my theory . . . . . .. . . . . . . .
