Sorry if someone else posted this already... But Lindelof said 'When Oceanic 815 crashes, Ben's got LIFE FOOTAGE OF THE PLANE' and the crash has already hit the news'
I'm not saying anything, but didn't he express himself correctly or was it a very important clue?
Or I am just reading it wrong?????
Here's the exact quote: "When Oceanic 815 crashes, Ben's got live footage of the plane and the crash news has already hit." Also, on the screen below a pic of a plane that appears to be landing at an airport, there are the words "Plane disappears over Pacific Ocean."
Here's my take: Ben's live footage is the plane over the island captured via Mikhail's video feed in the Flame. As for the "crash news" I think Lindelof misspoke and meant to say plane disappearance. I wouldn't be surprised if they clear this up in a future podcast. I don't think there's any hidden agenda. This entire epi just seemed like an opportunity for them to set the record straight, not introduce new mysteries.
