Ben and Desmond
« on: May 19, 2010, 01:48:41 AM »
Something I noticed, I think that when Desmond beats up Ben and he starts remembering things from the other universe, it is the first time that someone remembers something that did not happen on the island...

Didn't Locke wake up in the hospital bed saying "I wish you had believed me"? That wasn't technically on the island. This was John's suicide note to Jack.

Their memories are from the other timeline.  For most of them, the defining moments (love, danger, death, etc.) took place on the island after the crash, but some of them, including Ben, took their adventure off the island as well.  Desmond is reminding them of their other life, not just the island.  As Darlton has said, the story is about the characters, not the island.
