    Interesting. I don't remember Mikhail saying that, but I don't doubt it's true. I guess that means the Purge was sometime in the 90s then.

    I don't remember where I was reading it, but I thought the purge was around 1996.

    There's hints of it happening in the 80's, too; like the Blast-Door map indicates some 'incident' happened in 1984 and/or 1985 - but my bet is that the Incident refers to something other than the Purge.

    I think this incident was an electromagnetic event.

    After watching last night's enhanced replay of "Beginning of the End" I'm backing off the idea that Alex is Ben's biological daughter.

    It's true that in "Meet Kevin Johnson", Danielle did not object when Ben referred to Alex as his daughter, but I had forgotten how she smacked him and clearly said "She's not your daughter" in this episode. And in the 'enhanced' pop-ups, they reiterated Danielle's story of being shipwrecked for 16 years. If that story was false, I'm thinking they would have put some qualifier before the story, like "Danielle says she was shipwrecked..." but instead they just state the story.

    Regarding the timeline not matching up in terms of Danielle arriving before the purge; I think maybe the purge did happen in the 80's. Although Kelvin could not have arrived on the island prior to the early 90's; his job was to man the Swan. Ben and the Others supposedly did not know of the Swan until the Losties found the Hatch (link). So maybe the Swan occupants were kept isolated from the rest of DHARMA; they knew something happened and that gas was released and that's why Kelvin would always wear the protective suit when he went outside - which was very similar to the suits worn by Charlotte and Faraday, BTW. At some point he realized the danger from the gas had past and something had happened to the rest of DHARMA. He kept wearing the suit as a ruse to keep Desmond from coming out of the hatch and Kelvin could work on his escape plan...

    But then again, there's Mikhail's story, which is supposed to be true, where he says he arrived in '93 before the purge. And Danielle's stories and interactions with Ben still don't make sense so I'm not abandoning the Danielle-is-Annie theory entirely quite yet...

    Danielle's actions you cite provide motive for sociopathic Ben having his OTHERS shoot the crazy French lady; he had a different motive for caping Alex's needy sperm factory boyfriend.

    Interesting. But, remember in season three when Kate wore that hat and looked really hot?

    And then later she wasn't wearing a hat, but was STILL really hot?

    Four-toed. And I hope we learn something of the ancient islanders.

    I rewatched it as well, and did you catch the OTHER butt crack that we missed earlier?

    It just wasn't as pleasant as Naomi's...

    Ah, yes; the "cannonball" moment - that one I don't think I need to see the screen-shot of.

    Anyone been playing on Find815.com? I had finished the game a while back and just went back to the site. It's just showing a journal page and a pic of Sam. I can't seem to find anything to click on. Anyone else?

    Yeah, it's been that way for a week or so now. I can't find anything to click on either, there's some discussion at DarkUFO, but it doesn't seem as if anyone knows anything else...
