Please read this thread, I know who is in the coffin!

John Lantham - John Bentham = Ben! Ben is in the coffin. Do you think I'm right?

    I reckon I know who is in the coffin. Its a bit far-out but I think its Ben.

    We know the producers love giving clues through word games such as anagrams and they also name characters after philosphers like John Locke and Richard Alpert. If the newspaper says John Lantham, then that is very similar to John Bentham, a philosopher. So the makers have slightly changed the name by taking out the 'Ben' to indicate who it is.

    Come on, thats got to be right!

    I think it's Ben too because Ben's death is the only death that could lead Jack to suicide because Jack thinks Ben is the only person who can get him back to the island and now that he's dead Jack can never get back.

    he's been suicidal before he knew about the dead person!

    my question: the events that took place in the flashforward, in what order are they?

    ttlg part 2..the first flashforward scene shows jack driving to the funeral parlor..

    at the very end of the episode, we see a flash forward again..jack and kate meeting outside of that airport! jack shows her the piece of paper and she tells him that she doesn't go to the funeral..

    NOW, i though that the funeral has already been done..i mean we saw jack being there...it was only a viewing, so said the black man..nobody came..no friends no family..

    so why does jack ask kate if it iwas already over? does the flashforward run backwards? what do you think of this?

    is it possible to watch a dead person in a coffin for more than one day?? if so..that would explain jacks behaviour. i think it is not common to let the dead ones lie there until everbody had the time to show up!?

    edit: michael might be in the coffin

    It's not Ben! It's obviously Julliet!

    It wouldn't be Michael of Julliet because he says that they were neither friends nor family. I would have to go with the Ben idea because Jack is dying and his world is falling apart, so he needs to get back to the island

    I like your idea, it would be just like the writers to do that. I still believe we haven't been introduced to the character yet and this finale was meant to screw with everyone's brains knowing very well that we can't figure it out since we haven't seen the person yet. Oh and for the people that keep mentioning Juliet or Claire... stop it already. The person in the coffin is Male.

    Yeah, Until someone on the island says, "I'm changing my name when I leave the island..." I'm going with that theory.

    Everybody is assuming so because Jack is obviously emotionally disturbed at the thought of the person's passing. It would also be a bit of a cop out if the writers said, "Oh, well, here's this new character, Jack hated him, but was upset when he died. There's your answer."

    The body is JOHN LOCKE !! Why? Because, JACOB told me in a dream last night. Seriously, if you dont believe me ask Nadia.
