Re: The Unreliable narrator in the flashforwards

logic and the unreliable narrator vs. the reliable narrator

Des is an accomplished sailor.........I never showed that !
Des entered a Yachting Race..........I never showed that !
Danielle's #-beckoned shipwreck....I never showed that !
numbers/key save the world......... I never showed that ! either

so, logic tells us that the former are concepts and premises prompted by characters..
characters acting as narrators
While the true narrator remains in the background, and..
gives credence to none of it

Neither does the true narrator give any credence to past, present, or future, as scenes are thrown at us ..
@ random, and without prompt
without justification, and..
without logic


put your finger in the dike... and the world will come to you
