I wonder if this was ever mentioned in the show or on this site but I don't seem to recall ever hearing about it.
The others seem so have a lot of financial ressources:
- When he was looking for the Oceanic 6, Benjamin Linus seemed to have the means to travel (plane, rental car, fake identities, etc...)
- When he came for Michael, Tom was able to not only travel around, but also rent an expensive hotel room
- While recruiting Juliet, Richard and Ethan didn't seem out of money either (expensive suits, traveling, etc...)
So my question is: What is this infinite source of revenue the Others seem to have? Would it be a mysterious benefactor?
Of course, it doesn't really matter to the main plot of the show but we can talk about it just for fun!
