    This episode took place before the "rescue" of the 6. Walt or Michael still could manage to join the other rescuees and have the media think that they had never been off the island...

    Didn't Michael's mom say something about not being able to use Michael's real name since he's been back.

    The time line did seem to be jumping around a lot. Especially with regards to when the plane went down and when Michael showed up back in New York. Might watch it again to be sure but I know I saw Michael watching a newscast of the plane wreckage.

    Which is more plausible? That Widmore, a man with apparently unlimited resources did the plane crash coverup or Ben, a man with no money or job off the island. How long after the plane crashed was the plane wreck discovered?

    I found it interesting that Mr. Friendly was able to leave the island at all. How did he leave? The submarine was already destroyed by that point. His response to Michael's question was interesting too. They can leave the island "when we need to."

    Ben's got to have some money. After all, Tom was staying in the hotel penthouse...

    Did he say it was his hotel room? Could have been the other guy's room.

    I thought Tom pulled his own gun. I thought I saw Michael's gun get knocked out of his hand, then Tom pulled his gun on Michael, which he then gave him, which, I think might have been rigged so Michael would think that the Island won't let him kill himself.

    Michael didn't need the submarine in order to leave.

    Yes, Michael was watching the same newscast that we saw in "Confirmed Dead." The only time it seemed to jump around to me was when he got out of the hospital so fast. Do the island's healing powers stay with you after you leave the island? Michael didn't even leave the island until the end of November.

    So the island finally lets him kill himself/die... why now/then?
    We predicted Michael would be the man on the boat and I think we are getting closer to michael being the man in the coffin.

    Ben says "you killed them michael, no one asked you to."
    Wow.
    But the "consider yourself one of the good guys," line was a bit hoakey. I know it was a throw back to Ben saying 'we're the good guys' to Michael before, just sounded lame this time.

    Could be. We have we have suicide attempts, we have New York, and we know he wasn't going by Michael Dawson there.

    He said "I'm staying in the penthouse at Hotel Earle," or something like that.

    Methuen,...
    Yeah we're much closer to being Michael in the coffin. (at the beginning I thought that was the death scene, until we saw him in the hospital). In the coffin obit it not only mentioned New York, but suicide too.. If someone did an obit for Kevin, it'd probably mention suicide (doctors found a note pinned to his chest to Walt).

    (that is, the obit could have mentioned this previous suicide attempt, before his later, actual cause of death)

    I thought it was a great episode.

    ANd regarding the creative advertising for the Mole..........I'll watch, but the Mole just isn't the Mole without Anderson Cooper.

    Still doesn't explain a few things...
    • Why would the suicide of an unknown NY man appear in an L.A. newspaper
    • Why would the funeral be in L.A.
    • Why wouldn't at least his mother and son attend? Sure, they were estranged, but not to the point of missing his funeral.

    Now, if Michael dies later. Living in L.A. under a name that his mother and Walt might not recognize, then it might just be Michael.

    The news reporter said there was little hope to retrieve the remains and equally skeptical to retrieving the black box. Captain Gaunt has the black box which he said Widmore retrieved... it seems like it would be easier for Widmore to retrieve the black box if he staged the plane and not Ben. I'm leaning towards Widmore being the man. I mean Friendly had receipts and everything! ;)

    As usaul, some questions answered but new questions arise.
    Ben says that once he's captured the people on the boat will kill everyone else. Does anyone ask why they want Ben? How do they even know about Ben? Why do they want everyone else dead?
