« on: May 07, 2009, 01:42:30 PM »
Did Jack, Richard, Ellie and Sayid go into the same tunnel system that was under the Temple?

This tunnel system goes under the barracks according to Ellie.  Is this the same system that connects the Dharma stations?  Seems like these were around long before Dharma.  If Dharma knew about them then how did they not know they go under the fence?

I don't think Dharma knew about them.  BEn found out when he was healed.

well, Dharma had to dig foundations for those houses, so they must have known something.

The houses they built did not look like the type to have deep foundations.  Many cities around the world have been built on lost tunnels, with noone the wiser till recently.  (See Cities fo the Underworld on Discovery or history channel).

Ben's house was formerly Horace's house.  So I'm guessing Dharma knew about the tunnels.  At least the inner circle knew.

I'm thinking the tunnels were what were on the blast door map - perhaps Radzinski found a few of them accidentally. Could be part of the reason he painted the Swan with his brains - smokey got to him.....

Not for sure. But whomever built that house certainly knew.

I expected to see the bomb encased in cement like Dan advised - shouldn't the tunnels therefore be radioactive?
