I commented on this in the "watching live thread
" last week and I've been wondering why TPTB inserted this particular scene in The Answers
I think the very fact that Jack is flying around looking for a way back to the island suggests that in the flash forward, he's no longer a man of science - he's become a man of faith. I wonder if he will have to truly lose everything to find his faith, or whether he can find it in time to not become druggie, pathetic Jack.
