So we now know for sure they are back on the island, thing is that they aren’t all on the same island, in fact they aren’t even all in the same ‘when’. This should mean some more crazy time bending goodness is still to come, sounds good to me.
Pretty sure during one of the podcasts between season 4 and 5 that Damon and Carlton teased at the possibility that we might see the runway again. The question still lingers as to why it was built in the first place, we’re the other building it because they knew that sometime in the future a plane would need to return to the island?
“Thirty years ago”
As they go from Frank, Sun and the other on the beach to Sawyer and co in Dharma time “thirty years ago” flashes up on the screen, as great as this is I think it kind of spoiled the mystery when Frank and Sun turn up as the abandoned barracks towards the end of the episode. I think that this should have been the point when it was revealed that they weren’t in 1977 with the rest of the losties.
Radzinski and the swan
Seems like he is a little crazy, so probably a good chance he really did shoot himself inside the Swan. Since he’s still planning (and building models of) the Swan station it probably doesn’t exist yet, although Pierre Chang is wearing a coat with the swan logo on it when he meets Jack, why would he have that if the station hadn’t been built? I wonder which of the other stations that we’ve seen previously already exist in 1977 (apart from the Arrow).
The baby is Ethan…
Arrgghh… kill it now before it can start hurting the losties. Or not, since the island probably would let that happen (what happened, happened). So in answer to the question from last weeks post, yes, the baby is someone we’ve met before, and yes they are relatively important.
