First, I’ll say that Lost has pretty much turned around 180 degrees and is now far more enjoyable to watch than say 5-6 weeks back. The seaon finale was great, it had enough action and twists added to get me excited about the next season. I thought the future sequences with Jack / Kate were great.
So now the question is “Who’s in the coffin ?”
Here’s my take – Ben is in the coffin. Why ?
1. No one was at the funeral. Ben has no family that we know of away from the island as his mother died in child birth and he killed his father.
2. Jack said he’s not a friend or family of the person in the coffin.
3. If only Jack, Kate, and Ben ended up back in civilization, and Ben was the only remaining person who “knows” how to get back the island and rescue the ones left behind… That would explain why Jack was so upset about this person passing away as alot of secrets die with him – mainly the location of the island.
4. The coffin was kind of short, and Ben is kind of a short guy.
