An interesting theory (I think) on what the alternate timeline is about and how the writers want it to come accross.
Here's what I think:
The theme for this season is DESTINY FOUND. So, I think that even if our characters never make it to the island in the alternate timeline, they will still fullfill their destiny. Here are some examples of what I mean according to what we've seen of the alternate timeline so far:
- Aaron will never get adopted - Kate will help Claire raise Aaron - John Locke will walk again
So, I think the writers are gonna reveal that island or not, our characters will reach the same innevitable fate.
So who died in the first timeline dies in the alternate one, etc...
What do you guys think?
