Aaron "A little over 5 weeks old" - EP 12

Post by GaryOC on Sat May 17, 2008 4:26 am

During the Oceanic Six press conference Kate confirms to the press gang that Aaron is a little over five weeks old. We know that Aaron was born on day 41, meaning that if he were a little more than 5 weeks old then the press conference took place on day 76-80....

However day 76-80 obviously took place on-island.. around the time Jack was with the others and Hurley was just discovering the Dharma van.

So why the lie you ask?

Well, maybe Kate is lying because Claire was heavily pregnant when boarding the flight in Sydney, whereas Kate (for obvious reasons) was not visibly pregnant. So for the story of Aaron being Kate's to fit, then they had to lie about the baby's age. If they were to disclose Aaron's correct age, then that would make Kate 7 1/2 months pregnant at the time of the flight, and it would be visible to anybody scanning over the cctv footage at Sydney airport that this was not the case.

However, contrary to this theory, surely Aaron would have to see a doctor the second he got back to america to check for any illness or infection, or to have any injections he would need (after all he was born on a desert island and obviously hasnt had the ideal start in life). Surely then a doctor would be able to determine that he was much older than 35-40 days old, proving Kate's statement wrong.

Alternatively, has the time difference got anything to do with it? Was it a little over 5 weeks on the mainland but maybe twice as long on the island... if so what does this mean for Aaron...?

This is more guess work and questioning rather than theorising people but i think its a topic worth a discussion.....

Gary, I don't think there is a whole lot to discuss here. Yes, she is obviously lying about it all. But, it was clear that whatever deal they worked out with the "powers that be," has allowed her to continue with the lies about her pregnancy and Aaron's age.

I am thinking the writers took the easy way out on that one...the official-looking lady even stopped the line of questioning on Kate when it started looking like she was going to get caught in the lie.

The official told of how many days they'd been on the island before each event so I guess the timeline on and off the island weren't too different.

yeah I think that Oceanic and others are obviously hididng the truth. But why? That to me is the real question. Did Paik cover it up, is that why Sun taking over seems to be so significant? Did Widmore cover it up (Still don't believe that he is the one that covered the crash up, though I believe that he is benefiting from it)

yes, during the press conference a reporter suggested that kate would have had to have been around 6 months pregnant when she boarded oceanic flight 815 (which she, clearly, was not). as i recall (and i haven't watched since i first viewed thursday, so this might not be completely accurate), kate awkwardly responded (did she even lie and say yes? can't remember -- but her countenance and body language clearly said no). the whole thing was so stilted and strange -- except for jack, who seemed totally at ease in his lies, the rest of the O6 appeared ill-at-ease and out-of-sorts. and the press conference continued w/out any further aaron discussion. my question is -- did this scene debunk the theory that the island exists in a different time (in the future)? it seemed like maybe so, but would love to hear from those of you who enjoy constructing lost-timelines...

I think this sounds like the reason they lied about the baby's age. I guess the writers will just ignore the fact that the baby must have been checked by a doctor as they arrived, who could have guessed Aaron's age.

Mamacass- We still don't know that. The island could even be in 1800s, that wouldn't necessarily mean that more/less number of days passed on the island than the rest of the world. My guess is that perhaps the island is 1-2 days ahead into the future. Because JJ Abrams stated that difference in time is not an issue when you speak on the phone, but could be an issue if you travel to/from the island yourself. And this looks like it could explain precisely why the doctor's corpse washed up on the shore before he was killed on the ship.

Well thats gonna be put down to a continuity error or the time difference from the island to the real world. Good point though im no good with time.

I think Kate's uncertain expression when the journalist questioned the chronology of her pregnancy basically said: I don't think they're going to buy this. I think they're going to realise I'm a liar and Aaron is not mine.

However, with all the Oceanic money she received (and it must have been a lot - Sun was able to buy Paik Industries! - then that can buy her all the doctors that know how to keep their mouths shut!).

yeah i think that Oceanic is part of the cover up, along with Paik, and Widmore. So I doubt there would be a doctor examining Kate because he or she would know the truth. Plus the lady who seemed in charge of the press conference stopped the questioning, like she knew the truth but didn't want the press to realize the truth

Well the oceanic 6 did get a large settlement. Maybe they could bribe a few of the airport staff to say the cctv for that day is unavailable.

This is all too confusing for me.
