Widmore (the economist)
« on: March 06, 2008, 11:19:57 PM »
I forgot how many people kept saying that Widmore was behind the freighter.
Widmore seems to have been behind Desmond's crash now, like people have been saying for years.
How safe will Desmond be on the boat now? I have a feeling that Widmore will continue to manipulate Des.

If Widmore didn't know how to get to the island till now how is he behind Desmonds crash?  I'm not saying he's not... I totally believe he is, just doesn't make much sense.

On a side note if we believe Widmore is behind Des' crash, then he's probably behind Henry Gale's crash too.

Other than the computer with the gas levels and the new station, neither did the entire episode.

Desmond has been on the island for 3 years, so he crashed around 1998.

I do not think he is behind the "crash" but that Widmore sent him to find the island.

Wouldn't three years make it 2001?

Libby was probably also working for Widmore,  And has been discussed that she could be Pennys step sister or something to that effect.  But she gave the boat to Des.  Maybe there is a tracking device or something in the boat.

Also when we see her in the crazy house, maybe she is not watching Hurley but watching the guy that knows the numbers.

Yeah what jug said.  I just said it wrong.  Gale was sent there by Widmore but the reason he crashed is TBD.
