The Runway the others built so the 06 could return

Post by mygrandmagotmeintolost on Mon Jun 02, 2008 5:29 pm

Maybe I am wrong but when Kate and Sawyer were captured by the others they had them built the runway. What happens if, Ben had an idea of what was going to happen and had them build it so they could return someday. Just a thought I mean it seems pointless to show that and then never mention it again.

Was it a runway they were building though? I never heard it called a runway in the show, unless I missed something Smile

SBP Juliet said it was a runway. Then she joked it was for the aliens to land on. The runway part seemed pretty real though.

From Lostpedia:


[Out in the jungle, Juliet and Sawyer head for the beach]

SAWYER: So, when you pulled us out of those polar bear cages and put us on the chain gang, what the hell you have us breaking all those rocks for anyway?

JULIET: We were building a runway.

SAWYER: Runway, for what?

JULIET: [Turns to him] The aliens.

[She smirks]

JULIET: I don't know what for, do you think they told me everything?

SAWYER: Yeah yeah, whatever you say. So you screwing Jack yet?

JULIET: No. Are you?

[Sawyer chuckles]

Maybe, the runway idea seemed intersting a little while ago. Then they just dropped it. I wouldnt be surprised if this was a twist episdoe ending. Also as a runway is one of the most unatural things you could build on an island. As Jacob clearly wanted him to leave.

There was also a cut scene where Danny Pickett tells Sawyer that they are clearing the land for a runway....so I believe it is for a future plot.

I believe in the runway!!! locke

Oh I totally haven't lost faith in the runway.

And let's not forget, the runway is not being built on the main Island. It's on Hydra Island.

(Not that that particularly clarifies anything much.)

Runway for what? Cessna? chopper? X-wing? hang glider? 747? if the latter, they're gonna need to capture a LOT more Losties and put them to work!

I think the runway line was a project started by Ben to give the Others the feeling that they could leave the island if they wanted...sort of like the submarine gimmick he told to Locke.

Besides, even if they pick up the runway thread in future seasons, considering how little of it was built, there won't be much they can land there.

Interesting take on it, that, MSHL. That it was a futile exercise designed to keep The Others busy. . . If nothing comes of it, at least we could say that was what it was for!

I assumed that was some BS busy work Ben had the others doing to keep the people busy doing something they thought was important.
Or maybe they finished making enough fake beards and needed something esle to do.

But what if Ben made the runway for the day he had to return? eh? He "always has a plan"

Please let it be an X-Wing. I'm so waiting for the Star Wars cross-over so Jacob can be Yoda.

But there was a submarine. There could be a small airstrip. They looked like they had a decent clearing. Assuming they we just breaking the rocks to smooth out part of the area, and maybe for a gravel bed... it's... vaguely reasonable. Assuming they bring in New Otherton Paving and Sealing to actually lay the tarmac. An all-gravel runway would suck pretty hard.

Can't believe you didn't use Viper or Raptor, man your wife's gonna cross!

Are you saying Ben is a master of Keynesian economics?

shhhhhhh...do not tell her!!!!

besides, Vipers and Raptors are VTOL aircraft.

"Are you saying Ben is a master of Keynesian economics?"
Yes I am, except the Others get paid in Papaya and boar. And like Nixon said "We're all Keynsians now."
