When Ben turns the wheel the Losties travel back in time and the Island disappears right in front of the Oceanic 6. The Others presumably aren’t affected by the FDW/flashes. So I’m wondering when the Island moved the Others would have to travel with it or they would be in the ocean. So wouldn’t they have had a similar flash to the losties when that happened? When Richard talked to Locke about it he said that he just disappeared right in front of him. Locke had a flash while Richard didn’t. But Richard did teleport with the island so I don’t understand why the others don’t have flashes when the FDW is turned.
