That makes sense!!!
Would no one have shown up though?

The obituary said it was a man's body that was found. Also, why would Kate's mom be so disliked or alone in life that nobody would go to the funeral? The neighborhood was in an African American community. That must mean something.

Sarah, I agree that there are a lot of holes in Charlie's death scene. Someone (either here or on another board) posited that maybe he was trying to save Desmond. He knew Des would want to see Penny at any price, so he made sure he couldn't get in. Still flimsy. I can see how he couldn't get out initially once the grenade went off. That's a lot of water coming in. Eventually, though, if he were thinking straight, he could have kept breathing in an air pocket for as long as possible, and wait for the water pressure to equalize, and then swim out. Overall it does seem fairly sloppy for a show where everything means something. Desmond did tell him that no matter what, Charlie was destined to die...everything Desmond did just stalled the inevitable. Maybe Charlie accepted it.

I think Charlie was just accepting his fate which is why he didn't think about leaving that room.

You mentioned the neighborhood of the funeral home, could it be Michael's funeral? I dunno why they would suddenly bring him back into the show even if it is for his death.

Well, I don't think they wrote Michael or Walt off completely. I think we're going to see more of them later on... it was never answered whether they actually escaped or not beyond getting on the boat, and even though Michael betrayed them, it's.. eh, remotely understandable as to why he did it in order to save his son... I mean, he obviously had issues with turning them over to the others. I think he might be likely to send someone back as a rescue team.. or try to get back there himself to save them. He's certainly not any worse than Locke in my book.. but, you know.. I think they just left it open-ended so that they could go there if they wanted to later on.

Oh I'm positive we'll be seeing more of them...or at least more of Walt. Ben's been adament that nobody leaves the island (except for the loyalists he allows to go on assignment). Why then Michael & Walt? At the time Ben said he let them go because he gave his word, but he's proven since then that his word means nothing. Michael and Walt are somewhere, but I'll bet my paycheck that they're not safe at home.

It could be, I really don't know. I think it may also be someone we don't know yet.

On another tact, I wonder who Naomi was working for? She had a picture of Penny & Des, and was to find Des. We now know that it wasn't Penny who sent them. I wonder if her father did? He's always hated Des. I also sort of remember something about him having some connection to the island.

Also, are the "Others" aging? We now know that Ben wasn't an original Other, but a Darma member. When he first meets Richard Alpert in the jungle, he's what? About 13 or so? Later, when Ben kills his father, how old is he supposed to be? Richard Alpert hasn't aged at all. Ben looks older than Richard now.

I had a weird thought during the "flash forward". Kate was worried when she met Jack at the airport that "he will wonder where I am". The only one who is that controlling is...well...Ben. I still say something horrible happened between when Jack contacted the ship on the phone, and when we see him in the flash forward.

I read that Michael is definately not coming back. Also like I said, I looked on www.imdb.com and no charactre has a last name that looks close to the one we see in the clipping...unless like someone said, they changed their last name. But they'd have to change it so it appears on the plane manifesto as what they told everyone too. I don't see any reason why they would do that.
post #338 of 345
It's highly possible that someone changed their name AFTER they got rescued because they didn't want to be contacted by media or other Losties... maybe someone like Locke? I can't imagine him having a big funeral attendance.

Well what I meant was that, they know each other's last name because of the plane manifesto right? So if someone decided to change their last name after the crash, that wouldn't make any sense.

I bet it's probably someone we haven't been introduced to yet.

Maybe I didn't scan far enough back in the thread.... but did anyone else thing that it might have been Ben's funeral?
post #341 of 345
One could always hope it's Ben's funeral but... you know, who knows? With this show it could be anything. And, you have to wonder if we'll ever actually know what happens after they get off the island other than what flashforwards they do, which aren't actually the reality of what happens when they get rescued, so.. we'll probably just never get that satisfaction.

I was thinking that when I watched it. Just watched it today. WOW! The flash forward was different. When Kate stepped out of the car, I was thinking, "wow, that really looks a lot like Kate"... Then I realized it was her... HMmm... I was thinking she maybe is with Sawyer. Dunno?

But Ben's last name is Linus, unless that's not his real name.

I'm not so sure about that. Locke has never killed a another group member in cold blood like Michael did (and Hurley's girlfriend at that!)

Ohh... you may be on to something. I can't see him changing his name though.

Very possibly... remember he stole an identity when he was first introduced... maybe he's done it again on the mainland.

Locke killed several of the others. He's certainly done things that are much more self-serving, like having Boone climb up in the plane, blowing up the sub, deliberately blowing up the hatch that was rigged w/dynamite so that no one would be able to contact the outside... killing the parachutist so that she couldn't radio the outside.. pushing the "other" Mikhale.. through the sound barrier, tying Charlie up, or was it Boone.. I remember him tying someone up but can't remember who.

Michael, while he definitely wasn't a favorite character.. I can see his motivation. His kid was in danger. He may have planned on killing Anna Lucia, but honestly... I think getting Libby was unintentional. I would have to look at the episodes again to see.

I just think Locke is *completely* self-serving. Michael was faced with having to save his kid. Locke just wants to mess up everyone else's life cause he doesn't want to be crippled. While I can understand that, it's certainly a lot more selfish imo than committing a crime because your kid is in danger.

Honestly, though, I don't particularly like either character, although I did like Walt. I really liked Boone, though.
