Also, what do you want to bet that when the island disappeared, Ben ended up in either (1) desert or (2) polar region...my guess would be #2.

I think they wanted to make it clear that this is how he ended up in the desert by the wound on his arm.


Very clear.

Wound was still fresh when he appeared in the desert.

Cold mule wheel room explains the coat, no other reason is permissible nor is needed, the answer was given with no need to make it more
than what it was.*

When the Isle did it's abracadabra-ness he was "moved" or "moved" himself very shortly thereafter.

His seething vengeance still near rapid boil, he sets off, still flush with Keamy/Cimi's blood literally and metaphorically on his glorious hands, to
exact said vengeance.


*all of course to my line of thought, think what ya wants ta thunk, but Ockham is my constant and the Razor hath spake!
I use Ockham's razor to explain everything I don't understand on Lost lol

But he did not get to the hotel until 10 months after the island disappeared. Where was he that whole time?? Is the island and Ben "lost in time' for ten months?

That's my guess.  He had to ask for the date because he knew the event was unpredictable.

I'll tow that line on the mule path along the O-high-o....

The wound still seemed fresh n' hurtin' when he transmorgrified to the desert

Locke would need to lie if he came back from off island because his real name would still be known from OC815 crash.
Locke uses this name not to raise suspision and alert anyone to him being back. Only Jack and other OC6 would know this as him from possible previous off island contact before he dies.

J= John Locke
A= Aaron
C= Christian Shepard
O=?
B= Ben Linus

I figure things on that island have to be pretty bad for Locke to leave and come back to civilization to beg the Six to return. And yeah, of course he's using a pseudonym to continue to protect those who are still there. Notice how quickly Sayid hushes Hurley who is about to use his real name...

I wasn't sure I was going to like the fact that they had caught up with island time and flash-forward time at the end of this season, but suddenly I'm liking the kinds of loose ends they left dangling for Season 5.

Nice!

You know what they say about 7/11.  We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

"One hundred and twenty-five years have elapsed since Bentham died on 6 June 1832, at the fine old age of eight-four. Yet, such was his singular destiny, that instead of being interred he is with us still, and may be seen, seated in a large case with a plate-glass front, wearing the clothes he used to put on, and with his stick ‘Dapple’ in his hand."

Could it be they are bringing old Johnny back just to stuff him up and sit his ass in a cabin to replace a missing Jacob?

Although I highly doubt it, that would be funny.   ;D

There's a "Weekend at Bernie's" reference in there somewhere.

It seems clear Ben time traveled 10 months into the future. The Orchid moved things in space and time. The Island has probably moved in both as well, but how far we don't know.

Didn't the obituary for "Jeremy Bentham" say he was survived by a teenage son?  (That's why I had been expecting it to be Michael.)

So did Locke come back and live openly under an assumed name with (Walt?) as his son?

The contents of the obit weren't actually part of the show. They were a leak. Maybe a red herring, even.
