    I suppose another theoretical possibility is that the island moved to a place with a much deeper sea floor...

    Everyone realizes that it wasn't Jughead that went off but just the small primer charge, right? Blow up a building, sure! Blow up the island, not a chance.

    But it exploded at a massive pocket of energy, so the resultant explosion could very well have destroyed the island (or, I suppose, the world, since saving the world by preventing that energy from being released was what the whole button thing was about in the first place!).

    The Losties referred to it as the core of the H bomb. If it were the core, it would not explode, it takes an A-bomb to generate the temperatures necessary for a fusion explosion in a bomb. And that thing was not even close to being big enough for that. It may, however, be big enough to house the explosive that triggers the A-Bomb, which triggers the H-Bomb.

    If it were the core, tapping on it would not cause it to explode and if tapping it caused it to explode, it is a simple chemical explosive bomb.

    I'm not sure what Sayid was thinking when he took it out and called it the core. So either he had a hidden agenda, Sayid is much more ignorant that we have been led to believe, or the writers made a major blunder. My vote is for the first alternative -- especially now that we know Sayid is a necessary piece of Jacob's plan.

    And I don't believe that Sayid is now simply Jacob's meat puppet. If Jacob wanted to take over someone's body, he had plenty of choices. But he specifically said that Sayid had to be saved. And he had planned it that way for quite some time without known contingencies.

    I'm annoyed that the producers are intentionally not revealing the name of MIB. There's no real reason for the characters not to say his name.

    Well, if Anti-Jacob's name is Satan, that would KINDA give something away.

    Well Sayid said he RIGGED it to explode on impact, so while I don't know the inner workings of a bomb, he said he reworked it.

    Take that for what it's worth, but it does sound like he knew the "core" or whatever wouldn't explode without changing it

    Unless the producers have a reason not to reveal his name until later. We may not be privy yet.

    Might be something really mythical like Hank or Barnie.

    Yep, that's a possibility too.

    Based on what I read on other forums, is can be deduced that his name is Esau:

    Okay only on page 6 of 11, but got to start somewhere...

    They said that it never got loaded. So they must have a record of it not being loaded on that plane, but then lost track of where it was so they don't know where it is at now.

    Originally I was going to say just because Jacob is dead. Then others started filling in...

    Interesting idea.

    I was watching via Hulu on my crappy system speakers and it sounded realistic of tinnitus, so I have to guess it was great on a better sounding system.

    I was just thinking about this episode and I had a thought (which others have probably made before and I somehow missed). The explosion when Juliette set off the bomb looked remarkably similar to the "purple sky" that happened when Desmond turned the failsafe key several seasons back. Does that imply that the "failsafe" was, in fact, a nuclear detonation?

    I think it's just that both Juliette's explosion and Desmond's key safely (relatively) released island energy. They both were designed to have a controlled release of the energy before it built to the point where it would cause greater damage.
