Happily Ever After

Now I know this universe/reality cannot exist. Because this was never meant to happen.

It seems to me, that the writers did some serious echoing with one of my favorite movies,
The Jacket.

Sure, this is an MRI scanner rather than a morgue drawer....but!

Adrien Brody experienced glimpses into the future/alternate universe whenever he was in there. Too bad for him, he didn't exactly get a panic button.

The way I see it. There are two theories:

LOVE is what makes people realize their other life. In the words of Penelope Widmore/Milton/Hume, "All we really need to survive is one person who truly loves us"

(another similarity to The Jacket, the reason Adrien was able to keep returning to the same place/time universe, was because he was in love a woman whom he knew in his reality as well --Oh! the first sign of a Constant!)


DEATH is the common bond between those who "see" and those who don't.
-of course this excludes Desmond, but he is the exception. to everything it seems.

Charlie's dead, Daniel's dead, Juliet saw into the other world...

So which one is it?


  1. Desmond didn't have these vision in the MRI machine because he was placed into a small space like in "The Jacket". It was the electromagnatism generated from the MRI machine. Just like when the hatch blew up and when Widmore put him in that box.

  2. i know that, I'm just saying it reminded me of the jacket mostly. The camera angles n such.
