Perhaps that was Desmond before he found his constant.......and the others may have been on the plane or perhaps are living different lives in the new timeline reset....

Shannon apparently stayed in Australia (via Boone). The Desmond thing freaked me out.. was good!

Did he disappear or just go back to his seat by the  snoring guy? Desmond is uniquely special according to Daniel

rushdie ftw.



i think when we get a desmond episode it'll cover some kind of weird flashes he had to make him appear, honestly. OR they just want us to believe he flashed and he was just pissin or went back to his seat

Also, where were the Tailies?  We didn't see any of them, either, I don't think.

I started making a list midway through the show:  Should've been on the plane but weren't, and Shouldn't have been on the plane but were.  I'm so embarrassed.   :-[

With Desmond, his future is changed....Penny might not even have been born assuming Widmore was on the island...he was not liked for slipping off and on the Island remember?

Oh And no faraday.

Ah, good point about Bernard.  So, all I didn't see were Ana Lucia, Libby, and Mr. Eko.  (And the ones mentioned earlier -- Shannon, Michael, and Walt.)  I'm not counting Nikki and Paolo.

I thought they said the book Hurley picked up was Kierkegaard... where did Hurley pick up a book?  I remember him doing it but I forget where...

when they entered the Temple, I think. I think Kate dumped it out of Montand's skeleton's bag.
