Has any1 else thought that the flash desmond had about claire and aaron getting on the chopper so long as Charlie died may have been interrupted by the man in black, in the form of christian, when he appeared in the middle of the night, taking claire and leaving aaron behind?
This would be possible as the man in black did show some acute ability to foresee the future. But why would he not want claire to leave? So that when the candidates return, she would be so insane that she would want to kill them, which would achieve his goals indirectly. Think about it, claire was nuts and did try to kill kate, and was very angry toward jin and jack. Would appreciate any further ideas.
