    I thought he said everything was in Faraday's journal.

    Global Cooling causes the sea level to drop and the island grew in size...


    Awesome Episode!!

    I also found it odd that Jacob intentionally touched every person he visited. It was almost as if he was predestining them to go to the island at some point.

    I also think that the conversation between Jacob and Fake Locke implied that fake Locke had set the whole chain of events into motion to get ben to kill jacob...i mean everything.

    Valparaiso,...
    He was in charge of Iraq's WMD program. :)

    I think we'll find out nothing has changed: what happened, happened. In fact, I think the H bomb was necessary. If they didn't blow it up, the electromagnetic energy would have consumed the Island. If they blew it up too soon, it just would have killed everyone.

    I kind of expect Juliet to wake up in the jungle and start experiencing premonitions.

    In the interest of consistency, she had better be naked.

    The series has been so good that I started worrying that there will be no way to satisfy us with a good ending next year! It will probably end with alot of questions not answered, which in and of itself is not bad. However, too many unanswered questions or contrived loose end tie ups may be something to worry about. So... join me in not watching the last season and have LOST end in the white flash of last night! ( Only kidding )

    Why was the giant crate brought on the airplane? If it did not ave anything in it until they put Locke's body in it why did they have it in the first place. Other than to have a dramatic reveal when the contents were shown it doesn't make any sense that they had the crate when the didn't bring anything in it to begin with.

    I'll be happy if they tie up the MAIN questions coherently. I'm not convinced they can any longer. I think they've taken this SOOO far from the way I ever expected this to go, that it will be hard to reel it back in.

    I read a similar sentiment on another forum on Lostpedia. I don't think we have all the cards yet, so we cannot still postulate what's really going on. There's still too many wild cards out there -- Widmore, Richard, Ben, Christian, and even Claire.

    I think the bomb didn't go off because it didn't have enough of a violent impact when it fell to detonate. It looked like it landed in some mud. Juliet didn't survive completely just fine. She looked like she was on the brink of death with internal bleeding. She probably only had a couple of minutes left, just enough to detonate the bomb.

    And as for the H-bomb, I could be mistaken, but I think someone else said in a previous thread that H-bombs really don't have as much energy as people associate with a nuclear bomb. It would be much more of a localized event than an island-wide thing. Having said that, though, I do think that the detonation of the energy of the H-bomb will be sucked in by the pocket of energy that they tapped into, so the fallout will be VERY limited.

    GREAT episode. A lot to mull on for the next several months.

    I was under the impression that they didn't BRING anything with them. The crate was labeled Ajira Airlines, so it was already on the airplane.

    Obviously?

    Not obvious by any means.

    We know that Juliet set the bomb off. We have no idea what the bomb did to the magnetic thing. We'll have to wait until next season to find out.

    The bomb may have:

    • Deactivated the magnetism phenomenon and left the island intact.
    • Deactivated the magnetism thing and obliterated the island.
    • Had no effect on the magnetism thing (the magnetic phenomenon is so awesome that it "absorbed" the bomb's energy, or something like that), and left the island intact.
    • Had no effect on the magnetism thing but obliterated the island. (Magnetic effect is still undersea, or moved, or somesuch).
    • Activated whatever device/force/whatever the "donkey wheel" controls and simply moved the island out of the harm of the blast.

    I'd imagine that the writers could think of other possibilities as well.

    I might have missed some technical explanations, but is it possible that the core of the H-Bomb was enough to "destroy the energy pocket" but not destroy the island and, more importantly, all the people on it? Especially given how far down it was, and if they had enough time to get a safe distance (if there is such a thing) from the explosion? In other words, is it realistic to assume that what happened had been "the incident" all along (i.e. that Miles was right).

    I think it might be 18 episodes next season - they had said after returning from the strike that they would get 48 over the final 3 seasons as originally planned, and we had 13 last season and 17 this season.

    So did we really go this entire season without ever seeing Claire?

    I've been planning on re-watching the entire series leading up to next season... just realized I'm going to have to average about 3 episodes a week between now and then. Wow.

    I thought that Jack was bringing Locke's body back to the Island. That was what was SUPPOSED to be in the crate (and was).

    I'm certainly in agreement that it will be tough to wait until 2010 for more Lost.

    However, some people seem to be surprised by this.

    The last two (or has it been 3 now) seasons of Lost have begun "mid season" in TV parlance. Specifically, January or February.

    Next January or February is 2010. Nothing I didn't already assume and expect.

    I don't think Widmore is Jacob's nemisis. Just that Ben is. Ben and widmore both want to serve jacob, but have different views on how to do this.

    the loophole might be for fake locke to get one of Jacob's followers to turn on and kill him like Judas.

    Plus, the core of an h-bomb would be a small fision bomb and would not be powerfull enough to destroy much.

    People are just "high" on the finale, and I'm sure all of us would love this to continue straight through to the end starting next WEEK!!! Of course if they started this back up in the fall, we'd have all those breaks that people hated the first couple of seasons. I personally look more forward to the winter season (January-May) than the Fall season. There are less breaks and I am less busy so I can catch up easier.

    I thought they said when they revealed that it was Locke in the crate that they found him in a coffin in the planes hold. If that is what the had in the crate all season why didn't they point out to the rest of the passengers that they guy walking around saying he was Locke was also dead in the crate? I guess it doesn't matter anyway. 2010 seems awfully far off. Maybe we should start a campaign to get this final season on the fall schedule. I for one will take my chance enduring weeks of repeats.

    Why is the crate such a big deal? It looked like a standard crate for checked baggage to me.

    Just a random thought. If the H-Bomb plan was successful, Black shirt guy's plan will have failed/never happened/been delayed, and Jacob will still be alive.
