Former spoilers and rumors

  • Damon Lindelof (Co-creator, writer): Miles will explain why he wanted $3.2 million, presumably in this episode.
    • TRUE
  • Sterling Beaumon (Young Ben): Young Ben will interact with Juliet, Sawyer, and Jin. A group of people that is not DHARMA or the Others, but whom we have seen before, will shape who he becomes as an adult. One of three theories is correct: Ben is Locke's brother, Charlotte is Annie, or Miles is Marvin Candle's son.
    • TRUE, the group that affects Ben is the Oceanic 6, and Miles being Marvin Candle's son is the correct theory.
  • DarkUFO (Spoiler source): After being missing for several episodes, Daniel is discovered by Miles. Radzinsky, Pierre Chang, and other DHARMA members were in black clothes. Experimental equipment was taken off the submarine. Daniel is busy setting up something big.
    • TRUE
  • DarkUFO (Spoiler source): Miles was spotted in an off-Island scene, possibly a flashback, being kidnapped by two men with what appeared to be DHARMA patches and thrown in a van. In another scene, a young Miles was at a hotel yelling about dead people.
    • TRUE, but the men did not appear to be wearing DHARMA patches.
  • DarkUFO (Spoiler source): Howard, a man in his 50s who is trying to bond with his son, is being cast.
    • TRUE
