After Daniel’s death I got the inkling of a theory: The Island appears to be killing the people who were born on it. We know that the Island stops letting women give birth on the Island after a certain point, but it now seems as though it’s doing some retroactive killing.
Think about it, we know of six people born on the Island; Ethan, Daniel, Charlotte, Miles, Alex, and Aaron. Out of those 6 only 2 are alive right now. And if you recall Claire made sure that Aaron wasn’t brought back to the Island. That leaves only Miles. So the big question is, when will Miles die? When I was writing my revlysis for The Variable I came to that same conclusion, that Miles was going to die, for different reasons.
This also calls into question what will happen to the Third Party if this theory is true, and the members of that group were born on the Island. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Bram and Ilana knew that they had signed up for a suicide mission, they’re the type of people who would happily die as martyrs. That kinda leads me to my another theory, I think that Ilana and Bram are trying to find Jughead to do what Daniel couldn’t, blow up the Island.
