Desmond's story is now making sense

The whole storyline with Desmond jumping back and forth in Season 4 and "The Constant" now seem to have a purpose in season 6.

The constant isn't necessarily someone special though. It's someone who you are connected to in the two separate timelines.

Examples in season 6:
Sayid and Jin
Ben and Locke (?)


Maybe we'll see by the end of Season 6 something shifts the conciousness of ALL the Losties between the two timelines.

Re: Desmond's story is now making sense

Furthermore, it is absolutely essential to have Desmond on the island. I believe he will turn out to be Jacob's replacement. Desmond as a candidate must return this season also. In the hatch, Desmond was "just saving the world, brother". Poor ol' Des is going to get stuck on the island for all eternity.

Consider how Mrs Hawking at the jewelry store bullied him into giving up his cozy Penny future plans. Consider Widmore's cruelty when he asked for Penny's hand--it was a set-up to manipulate Desmond to enter the yacht race, as was Libby giving him a boat. He was not able to sail away from the island, but returned to the Losties on the beach. The Oceanic 6 were instructed to go back to the island, "or we're all dead" per Mrs. Hawking. "The island is not yet through with you, Desmond."

And what of Penny's involvement? What does she know about her Dad? What sort of a relationship (young Penny) did she have with her Father? I would have loved a Penny flashback.

You can't have it both ways. If you're going to quote Hawking, you have to remember that she also said that pushing that button was the only great thing he was ever going to do. Wouldn't be true if he was destined to replace Jacob.

Personally I think all the "numbers" people have to replace Jacob together; 108 is important, the sum of the characters. Those six (or seven, with both Kwons counting as one number) must choose to remain on the island, once it's revealed what the island really "is". This includes a restored Locke, once the island is finished healing him (purging MiB). I think MiB needs one of the candidates to take him off the island; he can't leave on his own. That's IMHO why he doesn't kill candidates; I believe him when he says he'll protect them. One of them is his ticket off the rock. The Dogan/Hurley exchange made it clear to us: candidates aren't bound by "the rules" as they apply to everyone else. Just as "Locke" was allowed (by Richard) to take Ben in to see (kill) Jacob, any of the remaining candidates can take MiB/FLocke off the island. The candidates are the big loophole; they aren't constrained by rules. FLocke, however, isn't truly a candidate (although the island is restoring the original Locke) and thus can't just take himself off the island.

FLocke may discover too late that he needs ALL of the candidates with him in order to leave (if their sum = Jacob's replacement). If true, it's kind of a moot point if Locke's consciousness returns and claims the Locke body.

Re: Desmond's story is now making sense

Re: the OP. The constant was about keeping sane while flashing through time by having one important person or thing in both time lines to connect one to. With Desmond it was Penny. With Faraday it was Desmond.

The sideways reality isn't about time travel, it's about an alternate reality.

Furthermore many of the sideways characters have touched on eachother already in groups, not pairs, many of them on alt. 815.

Hurley, Rose & Locke were connected.
Locke, Ben, Alex and Arnst were connected.
Sayid, Nadia and Jin were connected.
Sayer, Miles, Kate and Charlotte.

Locke's Physical Body is Dead,buried in the ground,so I don't believe that your assertion that once Locke is restored,the island healing him,is a valid conclusion
