    Oooh, that's a good point, Auntie Sunshine. And not only that, but at the end their discussion, as a solution to Jack's feelings of guilt at having told Sarah he would fix her when he knew that he couldn't, Desmond told Jack that (and I'm paraphrasing cause I can't remember the exact words) all that Jack could do was "lift it up"---which I first took to mean to lift it up to God in prayer, as is often suggested among Christians. Of course he then said that he meant the foot, but I wonder if that really is what he meant. And it was indeed a miraculous healing. So is he evil, or good? Hmmmm...

    I was creeped out when Desmond said, "See you in another life."

    What if Desmond offering Jack the water bottle was a way to get a sample of his DNA?

    Hi! Love reading everyone's thoughts on this show. It's almost as much fun as watching the show.

    I was thinking about Locke and how he's been made out represent faith or hope while Jack represents science/facts. I, like some of you, thought that maybe the computers in the hatch controlled what was happening on the surface of the island (ie. monster, voices, etc.). I can't think of why else computers would be needed on an island in the middle of nowhere. And if this is the case, what do you think Locke's reaction would be to find out that the Island is not some mystical force guiding everyone down a path it sees fit, but the work of a human-being using computers? Wouldn't this destroy his whole belief in what the island means to him?

    And I think all of the weird things that have happened on the island could have been planned out and executed by a group of people. Except for the fact that Locke can walk again. That one's a mystery still...

    The symbol seen on the medicine cabinet and the coveralls appears to be a corporate loge based on the Bagau. The center section of the bagau represents health, where the company name appears to be. Perhaps the underground facility is a secret research facilty for developing some sort of bioweapon (the monster).

    I also didn't get the feeling that Desmond recognized Jack at all in the bunker. Could Jack's intial meeting with him in the statium have been a vision? He did appear to him at a time of severe distress, both physical and emotional. Of course, it's been a few years since that brief meeting...

    Although maybe him pretending his father was dead works into the theory?

    Before I read all these posts, I got the impression that the opening scene of the episode Wed. was Desmond in his high tech apt. from the 1980's or so...but then unless he liked oldies, he wouldn't have been listening to Mama Cass. And then I thought he created his hatch to look as much like it as possible. But after reading all the insights here, I think it was his home away from home in the hatch all along...

    The numbers are driving me crazy...I can't figure it out!

    BTW, after seeing the horrible rug on Jack's head in the flashbacks, it just made me appreciate the wigs in the LORD OF THE RINGS films that much more...Legolas and Aragorn's hair looked real...
    But didn't Jin kill people for his gangster father in law? Maybe that ties in with the theory

    I think he meant it like that the first way and when Jack said what? He said: The foot, lift it up. I think it had two meanings. I took the lift it up to mean, lift up the problem, but also my feeling was that it was said not in the traditional Christian prayer sense. I don't know why I feel that way. But then again, maybe he did because Sarah's feeling returning was a miracle that medicine could not explain. Maybe Desmond is related to that Irish girl that was on Touched by an Angel.

    But the first time he said lift it up it definetly had a different meaning than the second.

    This is just a thought.
    I thought about that too. Add Walt's mom. I also wondered, though, if it was a broader connection -- that they're all going through big life upheavals. Claire's having a baby she didn't want, Kate was captured and being returned, Jin and Sun were running away, Hurley's got cursed lottery winnings, Michael just got a son he doesn't want to take care of, Sawyer just killed a man, etc. It seems like virtually everyone was in the middle of a life-changing crisis when they got on that plane.

    Actually, if you wil remember, back in episode 17, "In Translation", it was revealed that Jin actually saved the man from being killed, by just beating the snot out of him instead of the man in white killing him. So there's been no evidence given that he is actually a killer. In fact, there's more evidence that he would never kill someone.
