    Although, he really couldn't be part of the O6 anyway...like Ben...never was on the plane.

    I was not awed by this episode. Better than the last one but I thought this episode was practically a parody of itself. "Move the island" makes me think of that satirical video somebody made a few years ago that talks about magic turtles and the ocean being missing. I don't know how Terry O'Quinn can deliver these lines with a straight face.

    Claire died in the explosion during the attack on Ben's place. We just didn't know it when 'miraculuosly' Sawyer retrieved her & Aaron. The Island was using the Claire, now avatar, to rescue Aaron. I think we've seen ample evidence that he Island somehow manifests dead people as avatars and agents.

    I love Locke stories. My favorite character along with Sayid and nowadays Ben. I believe that the Island in the form of 'Richard' impregnated Locke's mother. Cute, well done 50s scene. It's the Island's way of renewing itself. I agree that the teenage Locke was well scriped and extremely well acted. Kudos to the writers, producers and actor.

    Obviously the Island can translate thru spacetime. Maybe it quantum superpositions itself elsewhere and forms an insulating cocoon of electromagnetic (which includes light) interference.

    Note also that Michael is not recognized as an official O6 member even though he had returned to the USA previously. This sets up the scene we saw long ago of the funeral attended by a depressed Jack; it's Michael in the casket.

    Richard doesn't age. Makes me think that he, and many of the original others, are dead. Perhaps they are the crew of the Black Rock.

    I'm not sure if that is the real process or not. I just remember the movie.

    I think if this was true they would have played the "claire wakes up concerned about where aaron is, then sees a man holding him" scene differently.

    Ben isn't either, yet we see him off the island. And for michael it would fit the profile of down and out guy in that area with mom maybe paying for funeral.

    Was it obvious to others, but it just hit me.

    At first I thought the Doctor on the boat was a fake, but the one the found on the shore dead WAS that Doctor and it was in the future. So when Keamey killed the Doctor and tossed him overboard to be washed up on shore a few days before

    I was thinking the same thing while watching that scene. He did a great impersonation.

    That didn't make any sense to me, according to how things have been before... things have taken LONGER to get to the island (the rocket thingie, the waiting for Sayid and Desmond to contact them)... this happened on the island BEFORE it happened on the boat. Looking forward to see if that's explained.

    I don't think there is a direct formula for time. I think the truth is the island is just out of sync, and it could be faster or slower than real time.

    I think it could go either way, either the body went BACK in time, or that he wasn't the real doctor.

    But since they didn't do anything with the possibility for not the real doctor, I tend to think he was the real doctor.

    I suspect that, when the island is moved, it's going to alter how the rest of the world (including the boat) is placed in time.

    I just read (in Lostpedia, spoilerized because it refers to DVD commentaries):

    In the Season 3 DVD commentary for "The Man from Tallahassee", Richard Alpert is described as someone who is not interested in leading the Others but is very influential in finding and selecting a leader. In the commentary for "The Man from Tallahassee", he is described as being similar to a Panchen Lama choosing the next Dalai Lama. He and Ben keep each other in "check" by having the power to pick/veto each other's replacement on the Island. Ben's role would be to pick the next Panchen, should the need arise. This keeps the two in a sort of balanced power relationship. They are allies, yet they have some measure of control over the other should one get out of hand.

    I'm thinking he chose the item proving he was the chosen. Alpert didn't like that for what ever reason and bailed.

    The problem with that theory is that it's been quite well established that Locke's biological father is Anthony Cooper.

    Remember him? The one who "stole" Locke's kidney?

    The kidney compatibility thing is the strongest evidence that he is indeed Locke's father.

    Also, in the episode "The Brig", it's established that Anthony Cooper, Locke's father, is in fact, the "Real Sawyer", the one who caused the death of Sawyer's parents, who James Ford (our "Sawyer") named himself after in an act of some sort of self loathing. This is certainly one of the more intriguing connections between the characters.

    Unlike MickeS, I think this makes perfect sense.

    In fact, that was exactly my take on the scene.

    I think this was a test, to see if Locke was who "they" were afraid he might be!

    I think that Locke passed the test with flying colors, and from the point of view of who Alpert actually works for (Dharma? Widmore? Some previous group with interest in the island?), that's a BAD THING. They don't want him to become the future custodian of the island.
