Of all the millions mysteries or questions which are going to be left unresolved or open to interpretation there has been two between season 5 and 6 which I have never been able to explain myself. One is why the losties time travelled back to 1977 when they went back to the island in the Ajira and why they return to present in the Incident.

When Ben gave the walkie to Miles I initially thought it was for connecting it allowing Miles to know what was happening at Dharma Ville with Smokey. I don't know if it was connected, but I think I know why Ben killed Widmore. Widmore didn't want Ben to hear the critical information of what was his purpose on the island involving Desmond as was revealed to him by Jacob. When Ben realized he was not going to hear the information he killed Widmore to obtain exactly how Desmond is going to do that from Widmore's body through Miles powers. Apart from revenge, I think Ben, the master of manipulation is preparing his last double agent game.Read more >
The candidate is not one of the chosen Losties but all of them. Evidences:

-108 is the number selected on the Lighthouse.
-108 were the maximum minutes allowed to be able to release/contain the electromagnetic instability of the dark matter below the hatch.

-Jacks knows all of them have to do something together and so knows James, inside of him.Read more >
