Peoples theory on the incident
Alot of people are talking about the incident in the season finale and questioning what the flash means. The most common theory i have seen is that they have a time jump to 2007 or 1992. Fistly, since the wheel has yet to be used, i dont see how a time jump could occur, leaving two possiblities in my eyes:
either that is the incident they are discussing and the bomb released the electromagnetic energy further, nessesitating the evacuation of the island. The losties who survive are then sentenced to death byt the dharma folk.
or the bomb works, nullifying the energy source and changing the future, causing 815 to land in LA unharmed and for everyone to carryon living their lives.
I have to go with option one for a few reasons. Firstly because losts time travel is contantly stating that nothing can change, eliose always sent faraday back because she knew she couldnt change things and because she knew he would always make the plan and keep the cycle running. Secondly, because if the 815 crash never happened then all of the events of seasons 1-5 are void and either the whole season is someone trying to convince them to return and find out their “past” which would be very similar to season 5, or they would somehow still become involved in the war because they were destined to. And also because the first theory means Alpert could have watched them die at the hand of the dharma folk
