    It sounded like Ben and Widmore had a long history together. Who knows how much each one knows about the other "side".

    Sorry. I was thinking of the real-life John Locke and just meant it was related to his idea.

    Damon and Carlton's mothers are both named Sue.

    Depends what you mean by coincidence. I'm sure the writers realized that they were giving both mothers the same name, but perhaps they didn't intend any real significance within the show. Perhaps they meant it as simply an intentional coincidence. I mean, considering the number of characters who have appeared in the show so far, one would expect to encounter at least some people with the same first names.

    You mean like Charlie Pace, Charles Widmore and a girl named Charlotte? A 'Charlene' or 'Carly' is probably down the line. :p

    And how about this; Ben's mom and Locke's mom have both been named Emily and Aaron's mom is played by an actress named Emilie! :eek:

    Too bad for young Locke that the type of BOXING he wound up getting involved with involved literal boxes, not pugilism...

    Do we know this for a fact? The reason I ask is, we know Abaddon hired Naomi & her gang of four. We know Widmore hired Keamy. Both groups are on the freighter (Widmore's freighter). But do we actually know that Abaddon works for Widmore? Could there be a reason Abaddon got his gang of four on the freighter, yet not be part of the Widmore group? Or not be what Widmore thinks they are (IOW, Widmore takes on the four, not knowing Abaddon has originally hired them for something else).

    It seems like they are together, but on LOST, just because A=B and B=C does not mean A=C.

    Lost violates the Transitive Property? That explains everything.

    re little John picking the knife... Locke sure demonstrated his prowess with knives in prior seasons.

    No, we don't know that. And it's hard to draw any conclusions from what we do know. It seemed pretty likely that Abaddon and Naomi had a separate mission from the science team, and it seems clear that Keamy has his own agenda as well. But that doesn't mean Keamy and Naomi's plans had anything to do with each other.

    Yeah this is true. Now that I think about it there seemed to be about 3 separate agenda "groups" on the freighter. 4 if you count Michael.

    Completely random: I kept wondering why the inflatable boat had a 'boat name,' but it turns out that Zodiac is the brand of inflatable boats. He he. I guess i don't get out much.

    Still getting caught up on this thread, but I had to reply to this one:

    We already know who Locke's dad is ... the guy who conned him out of his kidney and was eventually murdered by James (Sawyer).

    As the FishMan said, so said I ... ;)

    Actually the captions said that it was the Don McLean version, which was not recorded until 1973.

    Also nobody's mentioned that Teenage Locke is a fan of Geronimo Jackson and has a poster of them in his locker at school. :p

    Maybe *he* is the sane one, and the producers lied (about heaven/purgatory/whatever).

    As for Claire being dead, maybe that's why the Asian guy from the freighter was so interested in her. Remember Sawyer constant'y telling him about the ""restraining order"? We know he can talk to dead people.

    I guess you'd say Michael was a defense against one of the agendas.

    Doesn't Frank Lapidus sort of have his own priorities as well? He said he was only hired to fly the scientists but it doesn't seem that the scientific stuff was his real concern. The conversation between Naomi and Abaddon about what to do if they found 815 survivors was very ambiguous. If they truly had no expectation of finding 815 survivors, you'd think there'd be no reason to even mention it. Lapidus obviously knew there was something fishy about the initial TV report, but we have no idea what led him to the Kahana or how he found out that it would have anything to do with finding them. I don't see how any definitive broad conclusions can be drawn from this amalgamation of information.
