    I wonder if the statue "crumbled" because the island has been moved before...

    and I 100% agree with Aaron being the "next chosen one".

    As Betts points out, he hired the crew so he must work for Widmore. I can only assume that with this show.

    I was humming in my head: "Break me off a piece of that Wid-more-Bar!"

    Also, I wonder where John would "move" the island too. And does it have anything to do with the graphic they now show at the end with the words LOST and the "island" under the word and a skyline above the word.

    Island, skyline?? Manhattan?

    A surprise podcast appeared this week, I was listening to it on the way home from work today. Specifically they were talking about the way a Dalai Lama is chosen, in reference to Locke, and this episode.

    And btw did you guys see the comic? Mystery Tales Magazine, "What was the secret of the mysterious HIDDEN LAND!" A man, on an airplane, looking out the window in fright, with a city below and a city floating above, in the sky.

    Also kudos need to be given to the teenage Locke. He had his speech patterns and mannerisms down REALLY well, I noticed it before he said, "Don't tell me what I can't do." Specifically when he said, "I'm NOT a SCIENTIST! I like BOXING, and FISHING, and CARS! I like SPORTS!" The way he emphasized the words. The kid did a great job.

    What? The double imagery of the city and the island has been in place since the beginning of the season emphasizing the season's focus on the Oceanic Six's future off the island.

    I assume that when the Oceanic Six leave by raft in the next few episodes, Locke moves the island making it impossible to find again. It was previously hidden, until Desmond blew the Swan Station up, making it visible temporarily-when the Artic monitoring people who worked for Penny found it. I assume that when Locke moves the island again, this will put that plan back to square one-thus the reason in the future, Jack flies back and forth over the Pacific hoping to crash-he doesn't know where Locke moved the island to.

    Also-it looks like the "Secondary Protocol" is related to the Orchid Station-and thus the teleportation abilities. More than likely I would guess responsible for moving the island.

    I also loved Young Locke's drawing of Cerberus. Very creepy.

    Wow!

    Keamey is nuts.
    Killing the doctor, while great drama, was foolish as he still might need him.
    And the dossier he pulled from the safe appeared to have the Dharma logo on it.
    How is Widmore connected to the Dharma Initiative?

    Jack sure is up and around fast. Is this the Island's healing power?

    So out of

    The baseball mitt
    the book of Laws
    the vial of sand
    the watch
    the comic book
    the knife

    belonged to John?

    What was the right answer?

    I think it was the vial of sand, because it was the sand from the island, and the island belongs to him.

    I thought the same thing-plus it was the first thing he contemplated.

    It seemed he was doing well when he picked the vial and the compass. Richard only seemed disappointed when he picked the knife.

    I also interpretted this as John wanting the knife but knowing it wasn't one of the choices he should have made.

    Was it a watch or a compass?

    I thought it was a watch, and instantly thought of the Christopher Walken scene from Pulp Fiction.

    It was definitely a compass. I think it was the "Book of Laws" that he was supposed to choose but didn't.

    I think Locke intentionally didn't choose the book. Like he intentionally didn't do what he was great at, Science. He was SUPPOSED to choose the Science camp, it's what the Island wanted him to choose, but being a "fighter" he chose to ignore his "true calling," and go with what he thought he SHOULD be to fit in with other boys; A jock, sportsman kind of guy.

    Well, he *did* say he was not just an orderly.

    Turtleboy, thanks for the background on the Dalai Lama "selection process". Didn't know that and I was wondering what it could have meant. Although if they are now adding reincarnation into the Lost universe I don't like it. Of course, reincarnation is just a small step away from Desmond's time-traveling consciousness so, perhaps, it won't be too "new-age".

    That was pretty much how I saw it too. I wondered about the book of laws because the comic looked pretty cool too. But the sand and compass may have been what he was 'supposed' to pick while the knife was what he wanted to be supposed to pick.

    The knife looked pretty old too.

    We know that Christian is dead, so I'm probably not alone in thinking that Claire is also.

    Also, I just googled "book of laws" for fun and giggles, and the first link that came up (broken, but I looked at the cached version) has to do with witches and covens.

    Curiously, a couple results later there was a link to The Great Book of Laws, related to "Sky Island" -- a novel by L. Frank Baum ("Wizard of Oz").

    Of course this is such a generic term that it could be almost anything.

    My wife thought Claire was dead, too. I admit it makes sense; I can't think of any other way she could be so calm about leaving Aaron. But, how did she die? It seems odd.

    For almost the very first time on this show I feel like I can see how a plot point will turn out: Sayid gets himself, Jack, Kate, Aaron, Sun, and Hurley (oh wait...) off the island in the first trip back to the freighter in the Zodiac, but then before he can come back for more people Locke moves the island. Jack's despair at the end of last season was because he knows the island is still out there but he can't find it.

    Of course, I'm probably wrong.

    Wow. There was so much to digest here.

    Desmond said he was never going to set his feet on the island again but he isn't one of the O6 so I wonder how his story will play out.

    So the helicopter pilot dropped his gps unit out of the chopper. This was probably to help them stay away from Keamy. If Frank knew what was good for him. He'd drop off Keamy and his men and then go back to the ship leaving them stranded on the island.

    No, I don't think so. I think you are right on. And I think the closure the writers know is ahead is making things clearer for us, the viewers.
