The real meaning of Claire's warning to not let anyone else raise Aaron?

Hi All,
The standard, long time lurker, first time poster.

In this week's "Sundown" I thought for the first time, maybe what the pyschic meant when him told Claire that no one else should raise her baby.

We always thought it was because Aaron was a special baby for some reason (maybe with the focus on stealing kids and their apparent powers).

Now though for the first time, my view changed.

What if the pyschic saw Claire's future and that she was crazy that someone else (Kate or the Others) were raising her baby. He was trying to prevent her from going crazy, by giving her that warning. Is has nothing to do about Aaron himself.

What do you all think?

Welcome to the boards! I myself stay pretty quiet as well.

As crazy as it sounds, I actually like your idea. Those psychics are supposed to be paid to see part of your future, right? So then, assuming he actually DID (which is a big assumption) actually see Claire in the future as some sort of crazy being, he may indeed warn her against that.

However, I don't know that we'll revisit this issue before the end, although it pisses me off to say that.

Hi, stohot, welcome to the posting world!

I totally agree, and had this exact same reaction in the episode just after Kate talked to Claire at the edge of the pit.

It makes sense to me that perhaps Malkin sensed the evil that would happen at the hands of Claire if someone else raised her son. So much so that he maneuvered her on the airplane-- not to keep her together with her son, but to kill her.

Its also just the kind of irony that Lost likes; he acted with a certain intention, which instead helped create the very scenario he was trying to prevent.

It would also help explain why Aaron didn't have to go back, and how the story can continue without his presence.

Re: The real meaning of Claire's warning to not let anyone else raise Aaron?

No. There are actually two predictions in that episode, and I think you are conflating them.

Malkin is quite specific in what he says, "This child parented by anyone else, anyone other than you -- danger surrounds this baby ... There is no happy life -- not for this child, not without you." The only effects of Claire not raising Aaron that he mentions all involve Aaron.

It is Dream Locke who earlier in the episode says, "He was your responsibility but you gave him away, Claire. Everyone pays the price now."

So, the psychic is quite specific about Aaron being effected by somebody else raising him, while the Vision is quite specific that it is everybody else who is effected if Claire gives him away.

I think its still vague enough that it doesn't rule out Claire herself being the source of the danger.

Uh... he says her goodness is needed to raise Aaron. That seems pretty clear to me.

Possibly a better theory, could be that Malkin was influenced/manipulated by MiB to say that. OR alternatively by Jacob, depending on which one wants Aaron where.

Exactly what I was thinking. We have never determined if Malkin was influenced by either MiB or Jacob...or by anyone for that matter.

If Claire is dangerous, it is only because she has been separated from Aaron.

Re: The real meaning of Claire's warning to not let anyone else raise Aaron?

Yeah, I have to agree with both Homer Noodleman and Sarge.

I'm pretty sure that Malkin was coerced at this stage. Didn't Charlotte (His daughter) drown a few weeks prior to the crash of oceanic 815 and die?

She was in the water, and dead for two hours. It was there she got a message from Yemi.

However, in the alternate world, we must assume that Claire is under the same circumstances, meaning Malkin didn't manipulate her, and Aaron is still under the same danger.

It also brings into question Kate's decision to leave Aaron in order to rescue Claire. Just how safe is Aaron in the hands of Claire's mother? ...being raised by another other.
