How do the Hostiles travel to and out of the Island pre-Purge?
Has anyone ever wondered how people like ‘the Hostiles’ can get out of the island? When they travel off the island in the 2000’s we see them using the sub that belonged to the Dharma Iniciative, sure, but that was post-Purge. How did Richard, after knowing about Locke’s birth in 1954, go off the island in 1956 and then comes back? We know that he’s back in the 70’s when he talks to little Ben, and he still doesn’t have access to the sub or any other means of transoprtation of the DI.
Also, assuming that you have to go through a specific bearing to travel to and off the island, it would require some technology, wouldn’t it? Or he can just teletransport himself…
This has probably been asked before, but I don’t remember seeing theories about it, so if someone has a thought, please share.
