On the Island
I know it’s not really possibly for me to understand what a 60+ year old couple feels like, but I can’t imagine living on that Island not caring at all about what’s been happening. I hope they were okay with socializing during Hurley’s reign.
-I guess these two just assumed that “Locke” wasn’t Locke. That still would have been pretty disturbing for them. But I guess neither of them really liked Locke for the last little while anyways. As I recall Rose wasn’t impressed with him in Season 4.
-I was pretty scared for the two of them when “Locke” was threatening them. I was sure that Desmond would go with him, but “Locke” could have just swiped them across the neck at any moment, Zoe style.
Off the Island
Here’s the strange thing. These two would no doubt flash on each other.
That means they might have been aware of their past life the whole time. These two might feel the same way off the Island as they do on it, they just want to avoid the drama. That’s a little crazy.
This might be a goof, I think the writers just wanted to have them in that last scene without explaining it.
