When Ben first takes Locke to meet the mysterious Jacob in “The Man Behind the Curtain”, Ben leads John to a decrepit looking cabin deep in the jungle. Inside of the cabin they find an empty chair and Ben introduces the chair’s invisible occupant as none other than Jacob. Locke, unable to see Jacob, believes that Ben is either lying or plain crazy, and so he turns to leave the cabin. As Locke attempts to leave he hears the pained words “Help me”. Confused and bewildered, Locke shines his flashlight upon Ben and the empty chair, which sets in motion what can only be described as a terrifying poltergeist moment. The cabin begins to shake violently, Ben is thrown up against a wall and Locke very narrowly escapes the cabin unscathed. Amongst all of the mayhem, we briefly get a quick glimpse of the elusive Jacob sitting in the chair.
Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 departed from Sydney, Australia on September 22nd 2004, at 14:15, from gate 23, flying to Los Angeles, California. There were 324 people on-board the Boeing 777. Approximately six hours into the flight, flight 815 encountered problems with their radio. The pilot decided to turn towards Fiji, but approximately two hours after that the plane hit a heavy turbulence. The plane began to descend and then underwent a mid-air break-up. The tail section tore away first and crashed into the ocean. Moments later, the cockpit section and the middle section tore apart and both crashed onto the mysterious island. Thanks to Lost flashbacks, we have been treated to glimpses of the passengers onboard flight 815, just moments prior to the plane taking a nosedive.
