Is This The Black Rock Claire Was
Dreaming Of?

In Episode 1.14, Special, Charlie reads Claire's
journal. In it he finds this entry:

I had that weird dream again, the one with the
Black Rock I can't get away from. I try to leave it but
it won't let me.

Now here's something I'd like to go back to. What kind
of Black Rock was Claire dreaming of when she was pregnant
with Aaron? The ship that's on the Island? A literal black
rock? According to Wikipedia, there are a number of islands
named Black Rock. Is it one of them? Should LOST Island
be named Black Rock? Any ideas?

[How the Black Rock got into the jungle, that's a mystery I
can leave unsolved.]

And after you think about the Black Rock, don't miss the
extra post below with more questions about Danielle.

I could almost blame this on a continuity error.....hmmmmm

cool freeze, you're probably right - the writers at that point didn't know what the Black Rock was.

That was a great scene though when Charlie was trying not to read the diary.

I think it makes sense. The island seems to send people information through coded dreams and visions. Having Claire dream of being held captive near a literal black rock is probably the island sending info about her imminent capture and existence of the ship in the jungle.

Sure, if Charlie was having crazy portentious dreams, Claire could have been too. I just wish that TPTB would give us some more of her's and Aaron's purpose in the story. Until they give us more, overall it just seems as if Mommy and Baby are merely the cutie-pie aspect of the show, and also the cutsie foils for Charlie's storyline. That's what ticked off viewers so much about Pikki's appearance, when they already had too many castaways that need story telling on, more than some mid-story newbies. :-p and :o)

I think Aaron and Claire are about to become more significant. Desmond did have a vision of them being rescued, and I'm sure Aaron falling into the hands of these new people will be very bad indeed.

Aaron has to have some importance being Jack's nephew (sorry Capcom)

Just don't see how the Black Rock fits into any Claire's story though.

Then again, lot's of ideas that I was so sure of have been blown out of the water!!!

oh Darlton! we have another question for you...

capcom said...

Heheh, maybe being Aaron's uncle will help Jack to become a better person PGT! :-) It'll also give him two people to "fix" now that Charlie is gone from them.

Well, I just hope that ahh...Claire and Jack don't end up falling in love, seeing that they don't know they are half sibs.

Ohhh myyyyyy....

Luke and Leia all over again. :-p
