First, let me say I loved the finale. I cried more than I cried in Up and Lorenzo's Oil combined.

Thinking back on the Sideways world, though, I realized there was a ton of misdirection this season. This is a common storytelling device, but I remember:

--Sunken island in Sideways world (that was only for the viewers, not the inhabitants of Sideways land)
--Juliet's "it worked" (we thought it must have meant detonating Jughead and creating a Sideways world)
--Daniel Faraday suggesting that a nuclear bomb created the Sideways world

I'm sure there are other instances.

The implication in the Flame station is that Mikhail is doing extensive internet (or other) research to figure out who the Losties are and what their deal is. Reasonable enough. But then how does Juliet know that Sawyer killed someone in cold blood?  It's not like there's an internet site with "people who kill in cold blood because the Terminator tricks them" lists.
