Who is Desmond referring to when he asks “Are you him?” to Locke?
- He asks it a few times; seems to be somebody he was expecting.
- He could possibly be expecting the replacements mentioned in “The Swan Orientation Movie” … but seemed more specific.
- Kelvin, upon first bringing Desmond into The Swan Complex, also asks him “Are you him?”
- For verification, Desmond asked the answer to the joke “What did one snowman say to the other snowman?” Locke says he doesn’t know. When Locke & Desmond met up after Desmond’s return to the island, he finally told Locke the answer: “Do you smell carrots?”
