Lots of things were answered or became clear with this finale. Vincent, Rose and Bernard are having a wonderful time in the 70s. Jacob has some mysterious guy that some here seem to believe is his brother Esau (not completely sure about that myself). Of course Jacob himself up close and personal for the first time. He visited every one of the O5 (plus Jin) but what about the all important sixth one, Aaron? Maybe I blinked and missed it but it seems Jacob ignored Aaron (Claire too).
With all the hoopla concerning Aaron in the beginning it gave me the hint he's important. Apparently not.
At least Jack and Kate had that conversation about Aaron and Claire. That's a good sign that the writers don't want us to forget about them.
I guess we're meant to expect that if Jack did manage to "reset" the events leading up to the plane crash, that it would then be Claire's decision on whether she would put him up for adoption or not. I have to wonder that if Claire would even be on 815 at that point. Malkin was the one who insisted that she take that flight, but maybe someone connected to the island put him up to it. Maybe the "reset" changes circumstances so that whoever it was no longer has the motive to get her on the plane. I also doubt there really was a couple waiting to adopt in LA, but maybe so.
There was also the scene with Sun finding the cradle and Charlie's ring.
I'm thinking Aaron was too young to be visited by Jacob, or rather that he was too young to be influenced by Jacob.
I really think that Aaron will be very important next season and may end up coming back to the island. If Esau or whatever we're calling him has been manipulating Locke as Christian, he may have also been manipulating others using Claire. When Claire went to Kate in the dream and told her not to bring Aaron back it could have been because Aaron could be used by Jacob in some way.
I also think this is tied to the statue though I'm not sure how. If Aaron is important in this way, it's probably tied to the fact that women can't have children on the island. Maybe Aaron's presence would undermine something Esau did to the dynamic of the island causing children to not be born. Could be just metaphorically but the statue representing god and childbirth being destroyed has to be connected somehow.

Yes it seems Aaron and Walt may be something to watch for. Jacobs last words "They're coming" lead me to believe he was talking about the people he touched (Jack, Sawyer, Hurley, Kate, Locke, Sun and Jin) but maybe its the ones he didn't touch like Aaron and Walt, the only other two who left the island and is still living. Also makes me wonder since Locke had a lot to do with them both during the time on the island. Taught Walt how to focus and throw a knife and built the cradle for Aaron.
Well we didn't see Claire all season, doesn't mean Claire didn't get a visit by Jacob. Jacob could of visited Walt and Claire off-island, but maybe thats reserved for season 6.
Perhaps Claire was forced to give up Aaron to protect him from Jacob's enemy, and why he got sent off-island. I do think Claire telling Kate in a dream not to bring Aaron back, is because Jacob's enemy wants him for something, and he can be protected off-island.
I think Sun finding the DS ring, could be a sign she will meet up with Claire soon, given shes the only 815 survivor in present day where Claire is now, until the other losties return there.
As i re-watch the first 2 season. I am beginning to believe Aaron is on the side or some sort of plan of the man in black. That's why Jacob doesn't visit him or Claire. That could explain the terrified look on the psychic's face when he initially read Claire's mind. Maulkin knew he had to get Claire (and thus Aaron) on that island because the MIB told him to do it during those readings.

I just cant wait to see whats in store from Aaron- I knew from the beginning he would be important and I know he will be. My only fear ( like many of you) is that he will be used for evil.
I think that Claires protection is the only thing that prevent him from any evil that he may encounter. I think if Jacob did visit Claire it might be saved for season 6 because of its content. If he didn't make a visit, then maybe he wants things to run its course and not interfere?
