Since it's now clear that both Jacob and MIB cut deals with people, is it possible that Claire made a deal? When she woke up and saw Christian holding Aaron and she wandered into the jungle and left the baby, we assumed it was because she was talking with her Dad. But it never made sense that she left Aaron.
Did he get her to go with him by promising to save her mother? Claire's mom was in a coma caused by a car accident when 815 crashed, yet she was very much awake at Christian's memorial service after the Oceanic 6 were rescued. She doesn't seem "infected" rather she seems like she chooses to be with Flocke but distraught over losing Aaron. --Cegschro 01:50, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
