Question. Anybody else see Mikhail get shot in the same eye his patch is on during earlier seasons? I believe the writers are going to merge the timelines in a way we can’t see just yet, no pun intended mikhail. We have seen Jack’s appendectomy scar in the alt and now Mikhail’s reason for wearing an eyepatch during his previous episodes, not to mention the scars on his face, are somewhat explained.
This means Mikhail probably hunted and found the island after he was shot in the alt timeline for a reason. He was on the island at the flame for a reason, and it probably had something to do w/ helping or stopping the losties. Just a whammy that deserves re-watching. I would bet that each character side plot has shown one simlar explanation of previous flaws/actions on the island that provide part answers awaiting the finale that will tie them all together.
