Who was in the coffin?
« on: May 23, 2007, 11:36:14 PM »
I'm betting Benjamin Linus.  Who else could die with nobody showing?  Kate's response of "Why would I go to the funeral?" could mean that she is still on the run or that she despised whosever funeral that it was.

If Jack thought Ben was right about leaving the island was a bad idea, I bet he would go to his funeral.

Some very astute person on another thread (sorry I can't credit but the darn server is locking up - imagine that...) noticed that the name of the funeral home -- Hoffs/Drawlar Funeral Home -- anagrams to "flash forward."  So, I'd say that's a bit of a clue...   ;)

I'm betting it's Juliet's funeral.  It has to be somebody Jack cared about because he seemed genuinely upset, and at the same time it had to be somebody that would make Kate's face/voice harden like it did when she seemed to think it ridiculous that she would attend.  Juliet will probably still do something to screw them over before they get off the island -- maybe kill Sawyer or something?  Who knows.  And I don't know why her sister wouldn't be attending, unless the whole video of her sister surviving the cancer was a bit of creative camera-work by Ben & Co. 

But I'm betting it was Juliet in that box. 

And who's the "he" that will be wondering where Kate is...

Definately Ben's. Everyone was rescued except Locke. Locke has spent the time being the leader of the others. He then sends his image back in time as "Jacob" to lead Ben into doing what he thinks is the right thing. Also that could be the reasoning behind seeing older Walt. Damon and Carlton did say they had a way for bringing those characters back using the same actor for Walt and have it make sense.
Also funeral couldn't be Sawyer, cause Kate was with him. She told Jack that "he'd" be wondering where she was... "He" has to be Sawyer.

Certainly could be Locke's funeral. First of all he really has nobody -- it would be understandable that no one would show. Also, there is a lot that has not been shown leading to that point... Locke could easily have become not "friend or family" to everyone on the island.

It is a funeral of someone who betrayed them all. It could be locke, sawyer, juliet, whoever screws them over at the end. We will know in the next 3 years.

I first thought Sawyer, but I think Kate is "with" Sawyer in the flash forward and it was Locke's funeral. He didn't have family and friends.
