OK—- I thought this week’s episode of LOST (3/10/10) was great– but Annie here at the radio station (I call her the LOST maven!) brought up an interesting question.
On all the stories which show what would have happened to the characters if the plane did not go down, no one had any comprehension of the crash, because, of course, it didn’t happen. (Although Jack has had a look of vague recollection , I thought.) But Ben Linus in the future (or at least in this other life, whether it’s in the future or not) does remember life on the island. His father even mentioned it— “maybe we should have stayed on the island.” How come Ben has this understanding that no one else does?
