Does anyone think that maybe these are not flashsideways but rather flashbacks where the circumstances leading up to the present are different; however, the results are the same?
Remember all the talk about not being able to change the future no matter what you do? I think these so called flashsideways have more to do with the overall story than just serving as an alternate reality. I personally would see the new flashes as a waste of time if they don't serve the original storyline.
Again, just because many of the circumstances changed, it doesn't mean that the result will not be the same. Just something to think about. The problem with that theory is the island under water when the flashes begin on the plane. But hey this is Lost anything can happen, right?
