Sort of unrelated, but a note about Eloise.
The notion that Aaron can't be raised by Claire was first seen in the LA couple paying the psychic money to "change his mind" and persuade Claire to get on that flight.
We know that X-Locke doesn't want Aaron to be raised by Claire.
We know that Christian's "ghost" (who many assume was smokey using Christian's body) didn't want Claire to raise Aaron (e.g. made her leave Aaron in the jungle).
We know that Eloise insisted on putting Christian's shoes on Locke's body. So can we assume that Eloise wants Smokey to inhabit Locke's body and find a way to "finally get off the island"? Given what many appear to be saying, this does seem to support the idea that Smokey is Faraday/Faraday is Smokey. She might want her son back.
Is Eloise the reincaration of a more ancient mother of Smokey and Jacob? Could this be one giant attempt at an ancient family reunion, but the family is divided about how to be reunited/what to do once they are?
