With only a few more episodes left, we're supposed to be getting answers.  I'm not seeing the answers, so I thought I would see if anyone else caught any.

I'm going to try and start a new thread every episode, just so we can keep up with questions answered each episode.

I need to watch that part again; did Dogen realize long before that he had been duped, or was he still hopeful until he heard Jacob was dead? And why would Jacob want to lure him to the island anyway?

I think the answers are about to start pouring in.  In the previous seasons we always get this big march a few episodes before the finale and thats when all the answers occur.   Now we have 10 episodes left and that big march is already beginning.

I think a huge question we've answered from Season 1 is who was Jin's watch going to be delivered to? Answer: Keamy

There was also some speculation that MIB was trying to "home" to the temple, but it seems like that is NOT his home.

Interesting.. So why bother clearing out the temple?

That was a leap. Just because Keamy had Jin, it does not mean he was delivering the watch. Or did I miss something. Did we see the watch??

Not really since Keamy was in the "sideways" timeline. Keamy was a gangster in this timeline he was a mercenary in the other timeline. As we've already seen on numerous occasions, the sideways timeline differs a great deal from the island timeline. It was Keamy this time but there's literally no way to know if that's who the watch was going to originally. Since Keamy was in an entirely different line of work (mercenary) the first time around I'd say the watch was definitely not going to him on the original timeline.

...and the rewatch with popups mentioned the sideways were what "would" have happened...so that sort of implies its not relative to the other timeline at all...

Just a thought...could be way off base here, but....
Any merit to some (or all) of the folks headed down a certain path regardless of the which dimension they were in?

I wouldn't say mercenary and gangster are complete opposite sides of the spectrum, although you are right, not original timeline.

Not sure it's that big of a leap. Why else would Jin be there? I think we're meant to assume that Jin was delivering Keamy the watch.

we don't know he was duped, right ?
for all we know his son actually is alive and well in Japan
