Lost: The Man on the Plane

A few people have emailed me or posted comments to my post on There's No Place Like Home, Part 1, asking about the man on the plane who Decker nods at. When she first walks back to the Oceanic Six, she looks to her left, smiles and gives a little nod. I remember pausing the scene several times when it first aired, but I couldn't see anyone. A few people have reassured me that there is definitely a bald man sitting in the seat.

Here is the clip from YouTube. Pause it at exactly 1:18, and you'll see a bald head. You can tell it's Aaron's... it's too far in the foreground to be someone sitting that far back.

Keep watching, and then pause again at 1:39. He's small, but this is the point where you see the man in the chair. I can only make out the pair of legs, but no face or head. As someone said in a comment, it's reminiscent of Jacob in the chair in "The Man Behind the Curtain." Can anyone with HD make out this person? Who could it be? It's not Christian, or Jack would be going nuts. Ben? Abbadon?



In other news, here is a brief interview I did with the New York Post on Lost. :)

Here's what DarkUFO has on the mystery man. It looks like he's just another Coast Guard guy, and that he has headphones on when the O6 are talking among themselves so that he doesn't overhear their "plan."

It can't be Ben. Sayid didn't know how he got off the island.

Here's a link to a hi-res screen cap of that scene -- he does simply look like another Coast Guard guy, but who knows...

When I first saw that scene, for some reason I thought the woman was smiling to Charles Widmore.
