4 years missing?
« on: May 02, 2008, 12:27:42 AM »
Hey gang. I think I just put something together (which I don't normally have the brain capacity for).  :D Anyway... Horace (sp?) was in the previews right? said he's been dead for what 12, 13 years? even if its not him, hes DHARMA, thats for sure. But he died in the purge 12 or 13 years ago while Russeau (sp?) had been there for 16 years. Am I missing something or are there 4 years that should be accounted for? thoughts?

maybe thats part of the reason the purge happened, maybe it was not the others or natives that were stealing children but dharma themselves, and since ben was part of dharma, after the purge he had already developed fatherly feelings for alex.

We don't really know for sure that he died in the purge, they never showed him. Plus why would Ben take Locke to someone he killed? Maybe Horus was one of the original others like Richard Alpert's character?
But I do agree some time seems to be missing somewere.

There are times when these people are all over the place. Although, this is the kind of inconsistency that should not be overlooked.

I'm pretty sure they showed Ben closing his eyes after the purge didn't they?

Obviously Rousseau was there and Alex was stolen before the Purge.

Thanks I didn't remember that.
If the purge was only 12 years ago we never saw Alex. And Where did Carl come from?
Can anyone remember if Charlotte and Daniel gave a date that the gas was last used when they were telling Juliet at the station?

I'm not sure how Lostpedia derives its chronology, but according to their wiki, "The Purge occurred on December 19th, 1992 at 4 pm, the date of Ben's birthday."

That would make "12 years ago" appropriate for late December 2004.

It also must mean that, strangely enough, Pre-purge Workman Ben must have already had a relationship with Alex.

It doesn't seem like Dharma to be in the baby napping business.  Sounds more like something The Hostiles/future Others/Richard would've been into.  If that's the case, then Alex was 4 and living out wherever the Hostiles were living when Ben gassed Dharma.

We still don't know anything about Dharma or the Others or what either of them were/are up to.

We have to remember that Ben went over to the OTHERS when he was much younger. Remember he met Richard in the woods while he was looking for his mother? From that point on Ben was being groomed by the OTHERS.

I thought Horace looked an awful lot like the image we saw of Jacob in the chair.  The shape of the face and the hair was the same.
