    So I just finished watching this episode, & can't help but draw the comparison between the orchid / bees in the monestary, putting a cure for anger in the water ect., and the Stephen King short story "The End of the Whole Mess" from Nightmares & Dreamscapes. Does anyone know if this was done as a homage to King or just a case of two writers thinking up similar stories at different times? Just curious

    It could well have been an homage, but more likely, just inspired by King's writing. Both Alias and Lost have often been compared to his works, both featuring the odd reference to his books from time to time!
