Been busy at work...
Given that Richard seems to be a constant, I'm thinking that Ben and Widmore are at each other's throats for whatever the reason. Obviously somehow the island slows down a person from aging once they reach a certain age.
Given that Sayid pulled up in a Dharma van, I'm thinking that the plane was sent back in time to sometime prior to Ben killing everyone. How Said ended up working for Dharma, I have no idea unless The Others took over the Dharma vehicles as well.
I'm personally getting a bit tired of the whole thing of spending 40 minutes on flushing out the backstory and 5 minutes on moving the story forward. It reminds me of Les Mis. I'm also fed up with everone constantly pushing things off with the "I don't have time to explain it" crap. I think that it would have been better if the producers had kept a running title card indicating the real-world calendar date that we were seeing as its my impression that most of the events happen within a short period of time.

It's a television show. You're posting on a forum where the headlining show is about a big stone circle with a puddle in the middle that takes you to other planets. Does it really matter what someone's foot can or cannot do?
As for Locke driving, I can put a piece of wood on my gas pedal to warm my car up, you could push down on the pedal in a cast.
About Locke driving, is it possible that he simply held his right leg up and used his left to hit the accelerator? He wasn´t exactly driving very well....
So was not getting to see Helen alive because of the script or because Katey Sagal didn't want to reprise her role?
I think story, he probably wouldnt have cared about the island anymore if he had her back.
When the mind is enlightened, the body matters not.
Bets episode of Season 5, Locke is/was/is my favourite. Ben is so untrustworthy.
I have to admit I was stunned by Ben killing John. What was his motive? That's one thing I failed to understand by the killing.
It was interesting though this episode to show how John was desperate trying to get everyone back to the island.
