That show truly is amazing.

My thoughts when I saw them zoom down into the ocean was that island is what we would call Atlantis.

Comments any one?

Interesting idea, I hadn't thought of that possibility. The only thing is, the underwater island had the Dharma Initiative houses on it which would date the island to being submerged in or after 1977. The age of the Atlantis myth (or reality) is much older of course, so the time frame is off, unless perhaps the island itself travels through time somehow? Or do you mean it would be a modern day Atlantis?

My question about the underwater island is why would it be underwater?
If you assume the hydrogen bomb was detonated by Juliet then the underground blast would be powerful, but I don't think it would sink the entire island underwater (and it looked like it was very deep underwater too). I would think a 1950's era bomb would blow that part of the island apart instead and there would still be a percentage of the island that wasn't destroyed above sea level.
But then again I'm no Daniel Faraday, so who knows, maybe it would end up relatively intact a couple hundred feet underwater. :D

its interesting to think like that, and the only thing I can say is maybe the power of the bomb plus the pocket of energy took the base of the island out? thats all I can come up with, by the way I AM LOVING This season already!

Yeah, that's about the only thing that makes sense, the writers do have a lot of fudge factor with that pocket of energy.

I think at the end of the day somebody decided it would be more mysterious if it was on the bottom of the ocean, instead of half blown up in the middle of the ocean. I don't blame them, it does look cool and maybe they even have a reason for it we haven't thought of.

What if the underwater island is actually how the series ends? It seems like we're being bounced back and forth between at least two different times or parallel universes - Jack on the island and Jack on the plane (and at the airport). Maybe the writers just gave us a glimpse of their ending with the island ending up buried underwater...

It's in the PACIFIC. How could it be "ATLANTIS", as that's supposed to be in the "ATLANTIC ocean, which is where it gets its name from. I wouldn't focus on this being Atlantis, or the lost city of Lemuria (which is supposed to be in the PACIFIC, so if anything, it would have to be THAT). The hydrogen bomb simply sunk the island, and created a parallel time line.

NICE! I never thought if that. I can def see it going this route. Sort of like Memento. You see the end at the beginning. We need to see where this goes with the whole 2 different realities going on at the same time.
