Destiny and the reset
We all know that Jack's intention was to detonate the Jughead to reset the occurrences that happened for the past 3 years of that point of time, changing the survivors' "destiny", but what if their destiny was to detonate that Hydrogen bomb? What if Jack had a purpose on the Island (as Eloise had already pointed out), and that purpose was to detonate Jughead so that Oceanic 815 could crash? What if the destiny of those who went back in time was to go back in time to do the stuff they did, most importantly causing the reset?
Let's start with the facts:
- Before Charlotte died, she told Daniel that he had warned her from returning to the Island, and that hadn't happened yet at the time she told him. It happened about 3 years later (after Daniel returned in the sub), so this must've happened in the past, and if it happened in the past, then they've already went back in time and did the things they've done.
- Miles. When Daniel alerted Chang about the energy at the Swan and told him to evacuate, he told his wife and child (Miles) to get off the Island. That wouldn't have happened Daniel hadn't alerted Chang about the energy, so Miles and his mother would never have gotten off the Island in the first place.
- Benjamin Linus. Would the Others have taken him if he wasn't shot by Sayid? The flashbacks only showed Ben's meeting with Richard and his mother. They didn't show how they planned for the Purge and how Ben interacted with the Others. So maybe he officially became one of the Others when he was shot by Sayid, and then he began planning for the purge.
- Just a side note about Eloise Hawking: When she kills her son Daniel Faraday, he says: "You knew", so he figured out that Eloise encouraged him on going to the Island because when the survivors where in 1977, Jack told Eloise what Daniel had told them about detonating the bomb, so she made sure that he made it to the Island, and she told Jack that he still had a purpose on the Island (which was, in her point of view, detonating the bomb, causing the reset).
