But Kelvin is the guy who told Desmond how pushing the button would save the world. Until it's over-over I'm still hoping for a glimpse of a flashback of this conversation. A few seconds in a Desmond montage would do.  ;)
Flashback of the conversation?? They did a whole episode about this in Season 2. What else are you looking for??

1. Kelvin "saves" Desmond from his shipwrecked boat, convincing him to stay inside the hatch due to a quarantine
2. he explains to Desmond what he is doing in the hatch and how pushing the button saves the world.
3. They push the button for a while until Des gets suspicious, confronts Kelvin, and kills him.
4. Desmond turns the Failsafe key.

It's such a crazy thing to do, to push that button. And Desmond was told by Heloise it was the most important thing he would ever do. He was talked into it by Kelvin, who I agree is dead, but we never got part 2. I'd like to see the why. "Saving the world" seems more like a clue than an answer. It begs the question "How?" I'm hoping for another mention of the how and why in a Desmond montage. Is that too much? If Desmond got conned into pushing the button what was the con? Dharma built the hatch for a reason, maybe only to observe the hatch operators, but there was a Failsafe key that actually did something, what's up with that? Kelvin knows and he's not talking. It's frustrating.

I'll chalk it up to just one of those things I'd like to see more of, like Faraday's work in Ann Arbor, or how Ben has access to a powerful off-island resources.  Don't worry. I get ya.  It won't happen, but it's on my wishlist.  I'll learn to live with the disappointment.

Maybe this would be a good place to launch into some Lost fan fiction. Kelvin and Desmond, The Hatch Years.  ;) ;D

Oh well, can't win them all.... I just loved seeing Clancy Brown!

Okay, I haven't read this whole thread (so this was probably mentioned), but Kelvin was not buried. I think Clancy Brown still has a chance to be cast in Hugo and Ben's crazy island adventures in "The Others", the painfully obvious sequel to Lost.

But what is dead? We saw our Losties walking into the white light...so there is something in the Lostverse after your physical bodies dies...

Would have been cool for Kelvin to just appear in the Church. Would have freaked the hell out of Desmond (and probably Sayid too).

If Kelvin appeared in the church he would have said something like..."I am the ONE! Highlander!"
