I had a brainwave as to why the Island could possibly be underwater in the flash-sideways timeline, and it has to do with Jacob's explanation of the purpose of the Island as a cork to keep the evil that is the Man in Black in place. But in the FST, maybe the Man in Black isn't there, so there is no need for an Island to keep him in check, and it is now underwater?

Any thoughts?
