I like Frank Lapidus and have been wondering just what his significance is. He came to the island on the freighter, left, and then was brought back to the island by flight 316. After landing on Hydra Island, Ilana and Bram have a discussion regarding the possibility of Lapius as a candidate, even though Ilana knows the surnames of the candidates. Does anyone else find this strange? Another interesting event is the conversation between Ben and Lapidus during "Dr. Linus". That scene really made me believe that we should attribute some significance to the fact that Lapidus was supposed to be the pilot of flight 815. Obviously, the Island brought him back for a reason.

One scene that really struck me was during the mobisode where Christian tells Vincent to "Go wake my son . . . he has work to do." How in the world does Vincent know that Jack is Christian's son?? Also, on a related note, why is there a painting of a dog in the cabin? Where do you think Vincent is currently and do you think he is important or just an ordinary dog?

Now I know several people have already theorized that Locke might somehow rise from the dead. But I have a different idea. What if the FS Locke is the one who will save them? We see at the end of "Happily Ever After" that Desmond is planning to contact the people from flight 815 to "show them something". What if the FS Locke awakens to the OT and is conscious of the MIB and is somehow able to stop him? We've already seen how the MIB is…Read more >
