Maybe the temple is a new station built inside the head that belongs to the four-toed statue and the entry hatch for the station is through the......you guessed it....temple!   ;D  You know I'm kidding, right?
maybe the entrance is actully where the 5th toe was.  maybe they blew it up so that no one could get in the hatch!  that's where the toe went!

hey, that's anothe connection to the number 5!!!


Maybe Locke has been to the island before in another time and blew the 5th toe up also!   :D

Latest Temple development: the map Ben gave to Rousseau/Alex/Carl shows the Temple somewhere in the island's interior, along a ridgeline, and not close to the coast.  I.e. it's not near the 4-toed statue.  However, it was odd that the symbol for the Temple, and the map's look & feel, was like that on the map Charlotte had of the Tempest.  Were these maps made during Dharma's heyday?  If so, that Widmore now seems to have been the man behind Dharma, it makes sense that he'd have access to Dharma-era maps like the one provided to Charlotte.

Question is, would Widmore have been able to get a mole onto the island, with access to communication? Or did he compromise one of Ben's people off-island, like Mr. Friendly, to acquire updates on Ben's doings on the island?  How else would he have known that taking the Tempest offline was such a high priority?

Okay perhaps we are beating this point into the ground.  We know that the Island belonged to Widmore at some point.  So if he was involved with Dharma and had been on the island etc.  then it would stand to reason that he would know about the tempest and have maps of the island, as noted.

Daniel and the other members of the team came well equipped so, there is no doubt that Widmore has intimate knowledge of what is on that island not necessarily have a mole.  If he had a mole then he might be able to get on the island.

I've been posting this in a few threads already, but here it goes again:

Widmore told Ben, "The island is mine, Benjamin.  It always was.  It will be again."  I think he was more than just involved with Dharma.  I think he goes back MUCH farther than that!

Dang, this is the spoiler free thread.  Where shall I print this juicy tidbit I heard from an Emerson interview?  Hmm...looking for a place to hide a groovy spoiler on this subject.  *still looking*

Lakie did this happen already?  With the season finale no one was at the temple it was the orchid they focused on.  So with that said the season done, Ben is banished from the island.

If at any time Widmore moved the island then it means that he can't go back to it.

I know that he said it will be his again, but there are pieces here that we are not aware of as to why he may or may not be able to go back.

I'm so stupid, I can't remember for the life of me what I was talking about.  After I turned that wheel everything went POOF!

At the risk of sounding like a petulant child, "I still want a go#*amn Temple," complete with ruins and all! I want a @#$^&*! archeological dig site! The writers better pull through.

Matahari!  LTNS!
There's a preview video for the next season posted in the spoiler thread...but it really doesn't spoil anything...that shows it.  Can't give details here, but it looks cool.

An archaeological site would be awesome!

RE: Widmore's mole. It could be that Widmore does have an person, or shall I say entity to monitor the island and send reports - the smoke monster. Granted it appears Ben "controls" it, but what else seems to be all over the island, can scan people at whim and take a variety of shapes so it can be anything or even anyone?? Perhaps the control is not entire but Smokey protects the island so if someone is using him for that purpose he obeys.
