Just finished the season 2 finale "Live Together Die Alone" and I have a question that has been asked before I am sure but here it goes. Does Desmond know when he will die? He would almost have to know that so he can read that book. Could this be why he is special? Maybe Mrs. Hawking guiding him is really just more of reminding him of what he needs to do since there is some memory issues on the show. Just a thought I am throwing out there. What do you think?
